Can you better explain why NFSU crashed after right as it was getting ready to display my changed vinyl? I changed the Turbonetics vinyl, but then when I got to Turbonetics in the game, it crashed before showing the vinyl. Why?

[quote="bobyx"]Download BinTex 0.3 from our utils section, unzip it somewhere on your HD and run it.

Unzip the content of the file custom vinyl you downloaded to somewhere on your hd. Open the readme file of the custom vinyl. Find out for which car are the custom vinyls. Then launch BinTex - File - Open: go to NFS Underground/Cars dir, then to the dir of the car the vinyl is for and open and open VINYLS.BIN.

Sort the vinyls inside the file by name (click on the Name).

Check the readme which two vinyls you must update. Then select the first one in BinTex (without _mask), go Texture - Import and then select the first dds file (without _m or _mask) from the custom vinyl you downloaded. Do the same for the second (*_mask).

Then go to File - Save, close BinTex, go to the game and select the vinyl you replaced in the car customize screen.

Note: the names of vinyls in BinTex are not necessarily the same as in the game. The readme of the custom vinyl should contain info on which vinyl should you replace, and what vinyl is that in the game.

If your game crashes after you selected a certain vinyl which you think you updated, then you probably changed the wrong vinyl type (there are 1color, 2color, 3color, unique and manufacturer vinyls).


You can get the original VINYLS.BIN off CD1.[color=darkred][/color][color=blue][/color][color=cyan][/color][color=green][/color][b][i][u][quote][code][list][list=][img][/img][url]

a RAR file is a kind of winzip file. The program you need for it is winrar, you can DL it http://www.rarlabs.com. DL the prog, extract the file you got, and you can go further on.
