Hi folks,

I researched, bought hardware, and have written up the hardware acceleration options that existed for N1.

Enjoy Smiley

  Better LP-files from converted GPL an NL tracks
Posted by: OncleTom - 05-07-2022, 07:01 PM - Forum: Indycar Racing 2 - CART Racing (ICR2) - Replies (3)

Are there any better LP-Files than the converted ones for tracks like Virginia, Mosport, Mexico, Lime Rock, Kyalami or Zandvoort?

  Creating liveries
Posted by: 94933 - 05-07-2022, 02:58 AM - Forum: Indycar Racing 2 - CART Racing (ICR2) - Replies (4)

I am considering creating a few liveries, but want to create them as fast as possible.

Any tips and tricks, or best practices?

What is your workflow?

Posted by: 94933 - 05-06-2022, 08:24 PM - Forum: Indycar Racing 2 - CART Racing (ICR2) - Replies (4)

By any chance, are there 1996 - 2002 CART liveries available for the 2006 CCWS based carset? If so, where are they available for download?

  N2 NRWC shape
Posted by: James - 04-29-2022, 09:03 PM - Forum: NASCAR Racing (N1) - Replies (3)

Dunno if this belongs in here since it's the n1 forum but
does anyone have the files of this carshape for Nascar racing 2/1999 anywhere? 

The sim project links in the iwccars page don't work aside from the carset repaints and wayback archive don't have them. 

http://www.theuspits.com/iwcccars/winston.html

Absoslutely would appreciate any help in finding these

  Increase cars to 40
Posted by: 94933 - 04-27-2022, 11:05 PM - Forum: Indycar Racing 2 - CART Racing (ICR2) - Replies (20)

I'm about to start a season and plan to use the reyn1999 carset, but I want to compete with 40 cars total. My question is, how can I modify that carset and increase the numbers of files?

I have the 4096 carset which has 40 cars total, but it's a different carshape.

  Force Feedback
Posted by: CowtownBob - 04-15-2022, 08:16 PM - Forum: Indycar Racing 2 - CART Racing (ICR2) - Replies (2)

During GPLaps' livestream today there was a conversation about hacking force feedback into icr2 and it occurred to me that it should be possible to do it without touching the game exe through the use of an outside utility. But it's beyond my skillset though and I'm old as dirt and can't be arsed to learn machine programming, but for any of you young'uns who might like a side project, here's the theory:

As you drive your car the game takes your control inputs, track description data and AI definitions, processes them through the intellectual property that is the physics engine, and calculates your car's position for a particular moment in time. The results of that calculation will be stored, however briefly, in certain registers within the program's working memory, being replaced by updated values in subsequent timesteps. 

If those memory registers can be identified a utility could be developed to read the changing values and translate them into a force feedback signal.

Theoretically.

  Say, I had an idea...
Posted by: NefariousOxide - 04-08-2022, 04:48 PM - Forum: Indycar Racing 2 - CART Racing (ICR2) - Replies (7)

Because IndyCar Racing 2 now has the latest IndyCar shape (as well as the 2020 carset) courtesy of nooRok, I figured it's time to do some planning/discussion to make a 2022 carset for the game.

Now naturally, there'll be some hurdles to go through:

1st, we'll need permission from nooRok, and

2nd Are we planning to bring the liveries up to the upcoming round in Long Beach?

Finally, I'm interested in trying to paint a car for this game. Any clues as to where I can get started? And I know some of you guys aren't big fans of the modern IndyCar but I was wondering if some of you expert painters would be willing to help out.

  Dos vs Windy
Posted by: jxeboy - 03-22-2022, 02:26 PM - Forum: Indycar Racing 2 - CART Racing (ICR2) - Replies (4)

Hi All,

There are some differences between the Dos version of ICR2 and the Windy version. Outside of the obvious differences such as the UX and branding (cart vs indycar on some versions), there is also at least one difference in the core functionality of the game:

  • In the Windy version during practice you can exit the game and make set up changes in the garage, when you enter your car again the AI will still be lapping the circuit, where in the Dos version they will all be returned to their pit stall.
  • Because of the Windows file explorer it is possible to run multiple championship seasons at once, with dedicated save files for each of them

Does anyone know if there are any other functionality changes between the two?

So, there's this guy on YouTube who's built the Redbull X1 in Assetto Corsa and he's hotlapping his way around the great tracks of the world. He started with this 3:10 at the Nordschleife:
