But I dont like how the displays cannot be set off.
They are always lit. How can i change that?
Unfortunately, I felt I had to choose to have the displays either lit or unlit without the option to toggle between. I chose to do this because there is no support for alpha/transparency in the font files, and so by having a background that changes color, the font edges become aliased and generally very ugly when shown on that unmatched background.
If you compare the way the text looks on the lit screen in my mod to the way they appear in GTR 2 by default, the difference in font edges should be very apparent: by default, the font edges are colored to match the unlit background and they stand out like a sore thumb against the bright blue one.
I can't really offer a solution without feeling like the fonts will turn very ugly in one of the two states, sorry. Hopefully future engines like the one under rFactor 2 will have support for an alpha channel in the font files.
