Assetto Corsa Skin Transfer App V1.1
Russell,

Much Thanks!!

I recently watched a replay of the Audi TT Cup race from last night and it appears that at least one driver is still seeing my old Audi skin and not the new hotness. How does updating skins actually work on the client side for deciding when to update a skin? Will it only look to update a skin if there is a new folder to download? If the folder already exists for a driver, does the SRSSkin App just ignore the download?

If the latter... how do I go about making my newer skin available to drivers?

Will creating a new folder with a different folder name work? Is that even allowed? If so, what would I call it? russell_sobie2?

I wonder if Rogerio Santos just hasn't seen my Audi on track since multiple seasons ago and he just needed to restart his client....?

Apparently, SRSTV also still has the old skin. Sad

It has the correct livery.png for my avatar however.  Huh

Edit: It appears that the new skin was identical in size to the old skin... but the livery.png was not. It appears the only check is done is file size comparison and not date modified/created? I'm testing this theory in the next 30 minutes... I added 4 rows of semicolons to the .dds for the skin file so it's a K bigger.  Big Grin

Basically you need to make a NEW folder to put your new textures in. I recommend just renaming your old folder to like rob_russo_oldAndBusted and then making a new folder and putting your new skin in that.
