Default Problem painting a windshield banner etc.

Hey guys, hope someone can help me.
I am painting a Ferrari F430 from the Endurance Racers mod, the skin itself looks good already, but I cannot change the windshield banner, the driver, or the helmet. I used templates and placed them like they're placed in the other car folders, but they don't change from the standard versions.

Anyone know how to change that?

Thanks in advance.

More than likely the files you need to change are in the main tex files for that car type, not the car folder, so all cars in that team folder use those DDS files for windows etc. You may also want to look in the TEAMS folder to see if they altered the original STEX files.

rFactor, no STEX files or Teams folders.
The directory is GameData\Vehicles\EnduranceSeries\GT2\Ferrari_F430 GT2\.
In this folder are all the teams placed for this car, in this mod (for example 09FIA_AF Corse). Every team folder contains the .dds and .veh files and I placed the files the same way as in the other car folders, but it still loads other textures for the windshield, driver and helmet.

Look for a "misc" folder. Also look for ex(filename).dds files.

Mr. GTAce; I've painted a few 430's for this mod........

It sounds like your not giving the proper names to the files.
For instance, here's the necessary files to show how they are named from one of the cars I've done.

Other than the .VEH file, the others should look something like this........

F430GT2_081182 (This is the actucal car)

F430GT2_801182WINDOW

F430GT2_081182HELMET

F430GT2_081182DRIVER

All these files have to be .dds format.
