[rF] messing with sparks...



Download Video in better Quality! (right click and save)


Unedited Shot!





How to do it:

ATTENTION THIS CAUSES ONLINE MISMATCHES!

Go to the folder of the specific track you want to have Sparks like these.
Backup the tdf file!

Open tdf file and change the following line under // Other loose special effects

Reaction=spark Tex=spark.tga Max=1024 Duration=2.0 Scale=(4.0,8.00,16.0) Particle=Plane+Deformable DestBlend=InvSrcAlpha SrcBlend=SrcAlpha Shader=AlphaChannel+NoShade

Copy this file in the specific track folder:
Download from rapidshare

You may want to experiment with these numbers
Scale=(4.0,8.00,16.0)
They affect the size of the sparks.

Also feel free to improve the texture,
i made it very quickly..

Note:
Sparks will never look realistic due to the way rF generates them.
Let´s hope rF2 has better special effects.

Have Fun!

  1. Unedited?! Fabulous sparks, could you tell where they're from? They're probably homemade? :D

  6. It´s not mod depended,
    once you change it for one track, all cars will have sparks like that.

    I too have tried to reproduce your sparks with the file and tweek suggestion you have given and the results are nothing close to what is posted in the video. Either there is something missing in the explanation or we do not have the right file. Please explan why the sparks turn out large and bright.

  12. Tweaking the tdf file and pasting the spark texture was all i did.
    Not sure why it´s not working for you.
    If you show me a picture i will try to figure out why.

  14. This is not my spark texture,
    thats the default one.

    Where did you copy the spark.tga?

    I copied the spark texture to kyalami93.(See your texture in the backround).
    I changed parameters like you said in the tracks .tdf.
    I tested them in default location folder and it won´t work either.
    I had some different sparks before but yours doesn´t seem to work though. Maybe it´s the size.

  16. Hmm that´s weird.
    Also the latest Version of Kyalami 93 should allready have the sparks by default.

    Make sure you have the latest Version installed (V3).

    I once had the problem that the sparks wouldnt show in replay, but did while driving.
    Maybe check that too.
