Explicit error message for missing tyres ?
« on: February 11, 2018, 09:42:30 AM »
The number of people that forget to download tyres and hence have troubles is huge.
Would it be possible for GPB to display a warning when the tyre files are missing ?
It would solve a lot of issues.

In the meantime maybe we could, like some do, always include the tyres with the bike download?

If  people bothered to read the notice at the top of every BikeMOD release they would know to download the tyres ;D :P

It is not ALWAYS the fault of the end user. There was a recent case where the Modder had a reference to an incorrect tyre file in their bike mod.

Fair point. Still, most of the time errors are caused by people not downloading tyres.

Very true and trust me, I know first hand :)

But it doesn't change the fact that GPB shoul dbe a bit more vocal about what's going wrong, and that in general (e.g. "missing bike" when you connect to a server is silly, tell me which bike is missing you bastard of a sadistic software :) ).
