View Full Version : Headlight beams mod possible?
3 November 07, 22:48
Hi, I miss the headlight beams from GTR2. I like the way they light up the road, other cars, etc.
I got a mod to enable motec, so is it possible to get the beams back in?

Wondering the same thing
I apparently can't find any official reason why this isn't working.
For me it's a big let down since it was working smoothly in GTR2. Race 07 is a newer game, so no reason to let it out of the game for framerate ( as I read somewhere ), it worked perfectly before.
Could anyone ( cause apparently not alot of the development crew are reading these forums ) give any hint if they are going to fix this in some patch, of is it just a clumsy bug that's going to stay in the game ?
It's on steam, wich gives developers the opportunity to update their games automaticly, so no reason to wait with patches ! Or you shouldn't have chosen to put it on steam Simbin..
Anyway, I and many other want headlights to be projected on the road. Thanks !

Its a deliberate design choice, not a bug, as the original RACE also had the same thing. The reason for it is presumably fps as rain already has a fairly big fps hit and adding headlights to it just makes it worse.

Hi, I just got Race 07 this weekend and noticed the lights don't come one like they do in GTR2 and was wondering why. Is it because they never race these touring car races at night in real life? I'm just curious. I also noticed you can't change the time of the race to a night race like you can in GTR2. This would explain why there's no need for lights.

Strange, I'm getting around 100 fps with everything maxed out on my reasonably new (but no longer bleeding edge) computer. Can't imagine a dip down to 80 fps would cause too much bother.
