Assetto Corsa Skin Transfer App V1.1
Russell,

Much Thanks!!
Reply
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.

I had a problem with skin transfer app, it didn't work, "skin transfer unavailable". And now i found out, that there is a standalone executable in a package, SRSskintransfer.exe, that was blocked by my firewall!
I think you shoud mention about it in a instructions page, to add firewall exception for this application.

This app allows you to use custom skins exclusively with SRS.
Please note that this app is optional, therefore not required to use SRS. If you enter a session where other users use custom skins and you do not have this app, you'll see the other cars with a plain white skin.

Requirements:
  • Skin folder must be named after your SRS username but on lower caps, no accents and spaces replaced by an underscore '_'
    • Ex: username:Henrique Alves      skin folder: henrique_alves
    • Ex: username:João Paço               skin folder: joao_paco
  • Skin size must be lower than 10MB
Installation & Usage:
  • Extract the zip file to Assetto Corsa root folder, '.../steam/steamapps/common/Assetto Corsa'. Older version does not need to be removed.
  • Activate the App ingame on the menu 'Options' > 'General' > 'UI Modules'
  • Skin transfer begins 5 minutes before the session hour and ends at the end of qualy. Outside this period the app will return 'Skin Transfer Unavailable'
  • It will work online and offline (practice, race weekend etc...) meaning that you can use those 2 minutes between the 'please wait' and 'join' to upload your skin.
  • [New on V1.0] The app now gives you more information of what is going on and also gives you voice messages:
  •  
    • 1 step - your skin: if you don't use a custom skin as specified above, the app will display on the 1st line that you are not using a custom skin and moves on for the downloads. If you are using a custom skin, the app will display if the upload was successful, if the skin was updated or if the upload failed due to size limit.

    • 2 step - downloads: the app will check the skins to download and download them as soon as they are available. The app stops (timesout) before the end of qualy. If all skins are downloaded before the app timesout, you'll get a success message and the app will ask you to press the new restart button in order to load the skins. if someone skips the race or tries to use a skin larger than 10 MB the the app will timeout, if during the process new skins are downloaded, it will tell you to press the restart button to load the new skins, otherwise, it will tell you to carry on.


Downloads:
  • SRS Skin Transfer App - Link
  • SRS logo - Feel free to include our logo - Link


Special Thanks to Kunos support!

Update 08/11/2017:
Asseto Corsa Apps are now bundled on  a single package available on the link above.

"you'll get a success message and the app will ask you to press the new restart button in order to load the skins". I'm in VR where is this "new restart button"? I hear an audio announcement telling me to do so, but not sure what restart means.
Thanks,
