    oke, i am back.

    I tried the procedure again and i noticed something. Before packing the mr5.nefs file i first removed the original 05b13ef7.pss from the OUTPUT_FOLDER. So i packed it and that worked. Next i opened the packed edited mr5.nefs file and indeed there was the 05b13ef7.pss again. i opened it but it was not the version i edited in photoshop but just the original one so that was weird.

    I also mentioned before that there are extra files in the newly packed mr5.nefs. One of those files is 00000002.gz.

    I opened it and extracted the file in it, 00000002. Renamed it to 00000002.pssg and opened it and there is my edited livery.

    the other extra files are one .txt file and a few .dat files.
    im starting to think we going to need someone that know more about programing to help us with this, i started to learn C but i learned just the very very basic stuff

    I think so too, i am a class A noob when it comes to cmd.exe / c or whatever it is called, never used it before so i was lucky getting this far  :#.  

    I hope @Rider25 can help us out.
    could use python script?

    i will make it after i convert all my liveries from DR to D4, obviously if we find a way to properly put mods in the game

    Update: http://zenhax.com/viewtopic.php?p=23971#p23971

    offzip has a -r option that works just like quickbms but honestly I don't know if it will work in this particular situation with chunked content.
    If you want to try it's just the SAME command-line you used for extraction plus the -r option just after "offzip.exe", remember to make a backup of your archive.
    Obviously there is no support about this, it works or doesn't work.

    Just tried that a couple of minutes ago, it repacks it but does come up with an error at the end of the packing process saying the file was bigger (mine was by 4 whole bytes!).
    I managed to load the game up, select the car and livery, but crashes on loading the stage with an error report etc... No luck at the minute for me.

    I guess we can only hope for the dev of tool to have time and desire ;) 

    When I will have time and desire I will update the script 

  • StealthSCGStealthSCG Member Unleaded
    Absolutely, fingers crossed somebody manages to figure it out soon  :)

    Are the camera xml files in the .nefs? How do I get to the camera files?
    Looking into converting http://www.racedepartment.com/downloads/rocket-v2-immersive-head-cam-for-dirt-rally.6566/ to DiRT 4.

    I began it by basing me on DR's 208 RX  but I have the impression that the car's sizes are different, which does not produce much.
    But I have all the stickers ready :)

    im still going to do this livery as requested for a while already. but im not going to start before we find a way to repack the files, yes there are xml files in the nefs but i dont know if they are for the in car games probably they are but we still cant repackage them on the nefs so it doesn't matter much, IMO making mods with the unpacked files without being able to repackage them is a waste of time

    Yes, I saw it after by going on the equivalent subject for Dirt Rally.

    I began this livery from Sebastien Loeb Racing's announcement on Twitter but the measures between 208 RX and 208 T16 must be different by assuming that it would be the same files between DR and D4 (it's what I had made for Renault 5 Turbo and the Alpine between D3 and DR).

    If you want, I can cross you my docs (I have already realized the rally's sticker with the number and got back all the logos)

    For those that it interest, I have all the elements for Mkinen & Loix's Mitsubishi Lancer Evo 6 :)

    Sounds good, I can definitely do renders of the skins you're doing before they can be used in the game. :)
