Hang on..

You got the Honda NSR500 2001 to work??

Then you haven't updated to Beta 13

Install that then try again :P

yeah i used the first dl, all the others were removed/couldnt dl.

guys really, is that really my problem that i misspelled the file, FFS mods feel free to rename my profile to village idiot.

yeah didnt work, same thing, DL the 916 and tires, add bike pkz and then change folder to "tyres" and add the correct 916 tyres to that folder.
it didnt work, same thing bike doesnt show in menu and black sceen in game, is there updates to the sim, do i have old version of software? in "mods" it says beta 11b?? is that software version that needs update?

im starting to think the problem is i downloaded to D drive, do you think if i uninstalled and reinstalled to C drive the issues would be fixed?

final part that, im struggling with.
where do i put bike paints/skins? a sub folder of bikes? using sub folder of same title as the actual bike pkz file? tried afew things and nothing working so far.
thanks for your help guys, i know im probably annoying.

matty0l215

in the "bikes" folder

Make a folder and use the name of the bike you want skins for. e.g. for the R6 Cup Bike user "R6Cup_Yamaha_R6_2016" and inside that folder make another one called paints and put the paint files in there

Your directroy should look like-
Quote
...GP Bikes\gpbikes\bikes\R6Cup_Yamaha_R6_2016\paints


This may seem a bit arse about face but in the long run it makes sense, You keep the paints spereate from the bike files (the .pkz) so that when the bike gets updated you don't accidentily delete all the paints.

Download bikes and tyres from the BikeMOD

Put the bike .pkz files in a folder called Bikes and the tyre .pkz files in a folder called Tyres inside the GPB directory

Please compare you folders to the ones seen here- http://forum.piboso.com/index.php?topic=5304.0

Get them to work in game then worry about other things like paints.

u know the nsr500 uses the tyres that the in game 500 uses right? so like... it never needs updating cos it uses the tyres that come with the game...

It may use the v594 tyres but the bike hasn't been updated to Beta 13 (not that im aware of anyway) so there are files missing/need modifiying. So it shouldn't work with beta 13

Robins issue is that he was using an old beta along with other things.
