Starting again!
« on: March 17, 2015, 07:35:05 PM »
Yeah I forgot a lot of things about it (also I lost my Car Blaster notes). I'll write here few questions, take this topic as "old new amnesiac car builder topic".

First of all and most important. Some weeks ago I tried to rescue a couple of unfinished cars built 11 years ago and I couldn't watch them. Today I realize maybe Car Blaster works only with BB 1.0, isn't it?
If yes, when I finish the car, how was the way to translate it for BB 1.1?

Great!

Car Blaster works with 1.1 cars as well (the .RES files are the same), but as you noticed there are a few issues. Car Blaser does unnecessary checks when loading a car through the main menu, refusing to open it if there are missing or custom graphics files (for some reason it also complains about the size of the 1.1 Audi files). Fortunately, there is an easy solution: load one of the original cars (other than the Audi) and then use F9 and F10 to change cars without going back to the menu. (Just don't go past the last car or before the first one, or Car Blaster will crash...)

Ok this night I'm back to the lab :D
I won't finish those cars. They are two indy cars (Lola/Penkse and Chevrolet taken from the game Indianapolis 500) intended to be used with original Porsche/March Indy in IRC or any indy competition.

My present idea is to build a car between Lancia and GTO in performance and max speed in common situations. PLUS a power gear. A car with this bug was the (secret!) project I had after Melange but never did. Two days ago I learned Xylocaine has PG and it started a fire in my heart :D

Also an important detail to me is what existing car would be or if it's a fantasy car which name I'll give.

Good. I hope your engine supplier is Mercedes or Ferrari, rather than Renault or Honda  :D

Well... if I build a Torino (iconic Argentine car) it was built first by IKA (Industrias Kaiser Argentina) and later was Renault :D
