Add local repo to launcher?

@Huki Maybe you would like to consider for the launcher a possibility to add an own (local) repository by providing a local link? (e.g. local machine or shared drive) I downloaded https://distribute.re-volt.io/packages.json to my local Desktop, renamed the file to test.json, and entered the path in ...

Share same rvgl.ini and profile.ini files on 2 different PCs? Or sync?

Hello! I have 2 (Windows 10) PCs with RVGL being started via the Launcher and would like to share the same rvgl.ini and profile.ini files on both PCs. How can I tell RVGL or/and the Launcher that the files are stored under a different path (shared SMB folder)? I know that changing file content while...

Re: rvgl.ini vs. GUI settings

Thank you so much for taking your time for this detailed reply. :) If EffectFlag is not shininess, what is EffectFlag for? When you refer to legacy settings, e.g. texture32. is my understanding correct that one should not fiddle with these but keep the values as defined in the rvgl.ini? I.e. I would...

rvgl.ini vs. GUI settings

Hello! There are variables/parameters/settings in rvgl.ini which I did not find in any of the guides. E.g. there are some desribed that are not available in rvgl.ini (latest version) and others are simply missing, so maybe the guide is a bit outdated. Can yo please help me to understand the meaning ...

HowTo for track editor (MAKEITGOOD)?

Hello! I have started with the -dev option and began playing with new objects, e.g. adding new pickups on the first standard track. I looked on the Internet for guides, but most show keys that do nothing here (RVGL on Windows 10), some keys have different functions, and so I think that those guides ...

Run local sever with AI cars for local (LAN) multiplayer races?

Hello!

Is it possible to set up a PC with RVGL as local server, i.e. start a local (LAN) multiplayer race with only AI cars, and then join this race on another PC (same local LAN) with human players (playning on split screen)?

Re: Jump start, drifting, jumping in BattleTag, etc.?

Thanks again also for this information. I assume that for sliding not only appropriate cars (and skills ;)) are needed, but ideally also one of the drifting tracks, right?

Re: Concept of player numbers and controller settings unclear

Re: Jump start, drifting, jumping in BattleTag, etc.?

Oh, now I understand, what "reposition" means - it's simply to put the car back on its 4 wheels. I mistakenly thought that this was some other ("special") key. :oops: Well, now I know it and will try. ;)

And thanks also for your other explanations and the links - really worh reading. :)

Jump start, drifting, jumping in BattleTag, etc.?

Hello! Is there some kind of jump start, i.e. starting quicker than others when hitting the acceleration button at exactly the right time when the race starts? Is there some special way for drifting? I.e. pushing some button while turning the wheel, or braking while turning, or something else? In Ba...

Can someone please let me know if I may have completely misunderstood these settings? I.e. do we need 4 profiles when 4 players want to play in split screen mode? I find it complicated and confusing that every time we have to check and sometimes update the controller settings, because after playing ...

Re: [RVGL Release] 21.0125a

Besides the possibility of playing with 4 people on 2 devices, it would be cool to see the tracks as thumbs also on the track selection menu when going from a race to another.

Glad to hear it! :) Hm, I thought you can go to your first post, click on edit, would then be able to click into the first post's title, called "Subject" (which is also the title for the whole thread) and change it. Have you tried that?

If you did not mean this as a joke, you can rename it yourself as the author of the first post, I guess. :)

Remove or hide selected local items (e.g. tracks or cars)

I am not sure whether this could be handled directly in RVGL. If not, maybe in RVGL Launcher ? Can RVGL help to remove selected local items? Let's assume that one placed 5 different tracks manually (e.g. from revoltzone) to the local folder and later decides to remove one of them. Currently, I would...
