Me again! :oops:
Does anyone know how to put custom track ride cars onto a different track using the CTR creator? When I open the CTR creator and look in the available car types, none of the CTR cars I have show up. Is there a way to import them so they can be used? :?
I'd like to put Krypt's Kiddie Coaster (4 Seater)
(currently on spiral and wild mouse track) onto Mini Coaster track.
Amazing how you always ask these questions right after I solve them myself. I learnt how to do this while making Nightfire:
Step 1: Make sure the CTR car file has been placed in the correct folder when you downloaded it (I guess you've already done this but it’s important that the car files are already in game)
Step 2: Find out the name of the CTR car. This is likely to be the same name as the .ovl files contained within the downloaded cars folder. For my own CTR it is CTR_Nightfire
if that helps.
Step 3: Create a new CTR (The same way as I showed you before)
using two of the cars that do appear in the list. Save the Ride Text (.txt) and leave the CTR creator.
Step 4: Open up the .txt file you just saved. On the left hand side you should see a section labelled CarTypeName
and to the right of it the cars you selected in the editor. Replace the second one with the name of the CTR car. The first car is to stop the game from crashing in case you used the wrong car name.
Step 5: Save the .txt file and reopen the CTR Creator. Select Read CTR_BahnDaten.txt
. Select the .txt file. Click on the 3 buttons below in order. They will Right, Create and Install the file.
Step 6: Load the game and give it a try. If it doesn’t work the chances is the name is wrong. You’ll know this If only the first car appears. If so restart from Stage 4 and see what’s wrong with the car name. If it’s still not working just ask and I’ll see what I can do.
It’s really simple once You’ve given it a try ;)
