Hello Val,
Thank you for your answer. It appears that it is not possible to choose in wish views we want the mirror On/Off.
Thanks to Lapman from Frank P. Wolf, and the compare tool in HxD hexeditor from Mal Hrz, the offset in the race.bin file,
to look for is [line] 0005EA30 and 04 05 [columns].
Possible values for Column 04 - 00, 01, 02, 03, 04, 05, 06, 07, 08, 09, 0A, 0B
Most useful values for Column 05 - 74 and 76
Mirror in F1 and F2 views is always On, unless, switching it Off in Options menu.
It is possible to "displace" the mirror with Column 05 with value 74, in combination with values from column 04.
Column 05 with value 76, switches mirror On in views, in combination with values from column 04.
(Thanks to Sucahyo when he modified race.bin 1.2.4 BETA)
Unfortunately, the game does not allow to have random mirror On/Off views, as I wrote before.
I should have guessed that, because if it would be possible, Frank or Sucahyo would have created such program years ago...
P.S.: Lapman mirror modification is not compatible with race.bin 1.2.4 BETA or higher...

If you know how to do it with a hex editor ( I don't )please explain what part of the race.bin you modify and I will look at it and see if I can do something with that info.The best programmers that I know of would be Sucahyo or Frank.You can look up Sucahyo in the VRGT forum.Frank would be in a Viper Racing Yahoo club.You would have to search for his email in Google "Viper Racing Yahoo clubs" or something like that.

Yo Val,
Is there any chance to write a little program to modify the mirror in game?
The idea is, the player set the mirror, in the "F views" at will.
Example: F1 - mirror on, F2 - mirror off, F3 - mirror on...
The program would be like Optman made by Frank P. Wolf, and the mirror function as seen in Lapman.
It would read an offset in the race.bin file, and modify it.
This can be done with an Hex editor, but would be nice to have a little new program, if possible...
Thanks in advance!

Here's an idea - install TS3,go to my channel on Wed 13 June between 4:30 and 5 pm CST and I will answer all the questions you have.It would take way too much space to answer you here and explain what I have to.
You probably know you can have more than one program like Discord on your PC at the same time.
It won't mess up anything.I know a lot about computer stuff.Even if you don't have a microphone right now you can still type in TS3 and I can talk to ya.
Cya then if you can!

Sadly, I just deleted team speak. Discord is a good platform maybe to make the community for VR a lot bigger. I could even plug the channel in the revolt channels.
However, no blender plugin? That’s a big shame! (Blender’s much more powerful.

Which 3D files are there for car besides .mod?

Btw, I’ve seen import/export filters for .mod files, but that’s for devil may cry and such, is that the same format indeed? (Might be worth checking out)

You asked about an import/export filter for Blender , but you failed to ask for what file extension you are talking about.If it's the .mod file that Viper Racing uses , I use zmodeler version 1.07b.You can download it from http://www.gtaplanet.de/downloads/file/gta...eler-1-07b/594.html
 We use Team Speak 3 for a Viper Racing "racefinder".I still host the game 7 days a week and I am in TS3 between 4:30 and 5 pm CST daily.Info on how to find me is on my site with a link to Team Speak 3.
My name in Team Speak 3 is Val.
Cya later!

Also, is there a discord channel for vr? And can I get an invite?

Hey Val, is there an import/export filter for blender? (For be of course)

Duke, when you use keyboard to play, does the game run ok?
If so, the problem is the wheel set.
If not, reinstall VR game.

When you use the wheel set, go to Options-Driving aids and check for Auto clutch.
Try if this works. Try also Auto shifting.

If this works, try the wheel set on another computer if possible, or run the Logitech software to set configurations for different games.

Maybe there is a compatibility issue between Win10 and Logitech Momo. Try to check if there is a new driver controller.

Or the Wheel set is broken...

Val had a look at this problem I wonder if anyone else has a solution

I run some more tests to see what the problem is.
The game runs perfectly except for the transmission problem.
The car only seems to have one gear range. That is you can change gears and the gear indicator shows each gear selected but the actual ratio on the road stays the same for each gear. It seems like the car is stuck in 1st gear (actual) but still displays the gear change. Altering the gear ratios or the diff has no effect.
This happens in all levels of simulation, all different cars selected and in different tracks.
Changing to sedan etc. only changes the top speed eg 90klm for Viper 80klm for the sedan.
Video works - adjustable
Sound works - adjustable.
Wheel adjustments are effective and can tune in.
Pedal set works properly and can tune.
Gear change indicator works for each car and track – goes up and down - indicated
Program seems to be stuck in 1st gear?
Computer specs..
Display setting 1920 X 1080 – adapter – ATI Radeon HD 5400 series
4864 MB available graphic mem
AMD Athalon 64 X 2 Dual 3800 X 2 MHz
Ram 8GB
System Windows 10 latest build 64 bit
250 GB SSD - System
500 GB HDD -Programs
Wheel set
Logitech Momo
All worked well until W10

I turned the game into keypad mode and the cars came good with all adjustable gears working ok as they should. So all is well there but I cant use keypad so well esp after years of using the Logitech Momo – seems like going back into CGA days. Haha

Love to play again using wheel - any ideas?

Sorry - the 2 files you need are not in there.
You need the rescrack.exe file and a batch file to open the trk file.
Also included is a tex image to tga image batch file - do not edit that one - leave that one as is.
The 4th file you need is called convert.exe that converts the extracted .tex files to .tga image files.
Put the trk file and the 4 files listed above in an empty folder.
Here is a link to the 4 files you need.I made the batch file for you.
Right click on the rescrack.bat file-click "edit" - replace the "trackname" word with the exact name of the track you want to open - close and save the bat file.
Now double click the rescrack.bat file that I made from notepad, and all the files will be extracted into that folder in a few seconds.The tex2tga.bat is set to run automatically after the track files are extracted.

To open the trk file, are you talking about the vrtrackmakingfiles2017 zip? Which batch file in there should open the trk file?

Forgot 1 thing - you must add DirectX 9C to your windows system http://www.softwarepatch.com/windows/directx.html so these programs can work correctly.It does not affect your DirectX version you already have.
