Thank you Piboso.  ;) 8)

Hawk.
PS: Have you also increased the limit on the track centre line segments in TrackED?

Hello,
I am trying to convert a local track from rfactor to gpbikes.
I have created and merged a centerline but when i try to generate racedata, tracked crashes.
I also tried this with the default track but same thing happened.
Am i missing something in the procedure or is there a bug?
I haven never tried an older version of  tracked(where can i get one?)

Thank you for the report.
Track tools updated to integrate the new TrackED 1.20, that should fix the race data crash.

Track tools updated to improve the FBX2EDF normals generation for models exported from Blender:

FBX files exported from Blender should be converted ticking "Recalculate" and "Smoothing Groups".

Track tools updated: http://www.gp-bikes.com/?page=downloads

- updated TrackEd:
  -- restored the command-line merge of the centerline
  -- updated the bestline generation to the latest replays format
  -- added support for checkpoints on the start area and joker lap lines, too
  -- added the generation of the check lines ( needed for GP Bikes beta9 and MX Bikes beta5 )
- when the same texture is applied to both the diffuse and opacity channel ( usually to view the transparency in 3dsmax ) multi-mapping is no longer generated
- changed the default shadowmaps scale from 0.4 to 0.2

I don't see anything in the change-log about increasing the number of centreline segments limit as we discussed a while back? Has that already been done?

Thanks for the update Piboso.  ;) 8)

Edit(30/09/2016): This is the second time I've asked this question after you've updated TrackED and seems the second time your choosing to ignore what would only need a quick simple yes or no answer. But seeing as you said it would be an easy thing for you to do, then I cannot understand why it's not been done with this latest update unless I'm missing something here?

Hawk.
