Also, if anybody has any suggestions on parts that should be available and/or work well in different colors, please post them here, and I'll see if I can update this with even more bricks. Many lists still have free space.

Hmm.... the bricks use RGB values for the colors, right? Let's do something that is kinda rare in LEGO bricks.... Hey, how about that blueish color on that very rare window frame that was used in LEGO Island (@

could give more info on that color/brick).

I apologize if this is considered a thread bump, but...

 

First of all, I have already replaced my LEB files with your modified versions. I'm trying to add a black upside-down slope (not replacing the white upside-down slope) to Veronica Voltage's part set. I've tried Notepad and Notepad++. I copy "s00011 white", which is the white triangle, and I paste it near the end of the file (before the last NUL ACK). The game crashes on start-up whenever I try to add the black triangle part. This is my error message:

I have a feeling it's because I can't copy and paste the odd "NUL" character that appears in Notepad++? I got the syntax wrong? I'm not supposed to use Notepad(++)? I hope I described it well. :/

I don't know the specifics of modding the parts, but I wouldn't recommend Notepad++ for binary file editing. A hex editor like HxD would probably work better.

I recommended something totally different than Notepad++ or HxD: The LR1 Binary Editor, created for the purpose of modding LR.

Thanks to both of you (and the guy who made the program)! Not sure how I missed the Binary editor thing, but I got my black triangle in-game now. I just built "Dark Goddess". CsAJBar.png

Nice, sorry I couldn't get back to you on this myself until now, been rather busy as of late.

 

But yeah, I just used a hex editor add-on for notepad++ to copy the binary bits personally, seeing as these files are about half binary, half plaintext, but as you know, the method you used works just as well.

I hope it's alright with you Oboe Shoes, but I went ahead and added a lot more colors using your modified .LEB files as a base.
 
Here's an updated list of parts that are now included:
 
Default Bricks: None
Default Race: None
Default Space: 5 "1x2 tile with Handle" bricks (Black/Light gray/Green/Beige/Brown)
Default Castle: 4 castle flags (Beige/Brown/Light gray/Dark gray)
Captain Redbeard: Racing brown flag
King Kahuka: 2 Light gray corner bricks.
Basil the Batlord: 15 brown bricks (Basic bricks, corner bricks, spoiler)..
Johhny Thunder: 11 beige bricks. Beige corners, spoiler and flag in the next set.
Baron von Barron: Beige corners, spoiler, and flag + 8 "3 x 6 without corner" bricks (Red/Yellow/White/Light gray/Dark gray/Green/Beige/Brown)
Gypsy Moth: 7 inverted slopes (Blue/Red/Yellow/Black/Green/Black/Beige).
Rocket Racer: 17 dark gray bricks (Basic bricks, corner bricks, inverted triangle, spoile, racing flag).
Veronica Voltage: 16 green bricks (Basic bricks, corner bricks, spoiler, racing flag).
 
Most notable are the inclusions of brown and dark gray colors!

Hi all,

 

Denmark calling! 

 

Absolutely new on this forum, but as my son is crazy with Lego Racers 1 and 2, and wants to create more than what the game holds, I foound my way to you guys. Two questions....

 

1. The mod here, do I simply unpack it to a specific folder in the game or....?

 

2. Do any of you know if it is possible to drive as Rocket Racers in Racers 2? Is there a mod for this or is it simply a "no show"

 

Hope to hear from you

 

J

Welcome!

1 - Depends on what version of Racers 1 you have. You need to extract the game's JAM file regardless, if you have the 1999 game you can run off of the resulting extracted files, while if you have the 2001 version you'll need to re-compile the JAM:

2 - Yes, it's entirely possible. Here's a topic on general Racers 2 modding:

Once you've got all that GTC unpacking/repacking stuff figured out, the changes you need to make are pretty simple, just editing some text files.

First, Rocket Racer's car (and more):

And getting Rocket Racer in the character builder (and more):

There's other methods - editing saved games, replacing entire car models, Cheat Engine, etc (some discussion of other methods here:

And here:

) - but the ones I listed above are the ones I would use. Unfortunately while you can "unlock" all the car pieces through modding, you have to replace character pieces, you can't add them, so you'll have to choose what character pieces you want to replace with Rocket Racer.

Great :-) thanks a lot.

Will try it out and hopefully surprise my son with something he has wished for a long long time.

If I get stuck or something I hope to find some help here again.

Once more - thanks ;-)

Ehhhhh......

 

Perhaps something you guys can help with...... Following the very nice step by step guide I have run into a new problem. Most likely it is not the jamextractor that fails, but something on my sons computer. Ayways.. when trying to use the extractor I get an error saying that msvcr100.dll is missing.

 

Any idea on how to solve this?
