Additional Brick Colors Mod

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: '?do=embed' frameborder='0' data-embedContent>>

2 - Yes, it's entirely possible. Here's a topic on general Racers 2 modding: '?do=embed' frameborder='0' data-embedContent>> 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):

'?do=embed' frameborder='0' data-embedContent>>

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

'?do=embed' frameborder='0' data-embedContent>>

There's other methods - editing saved games, replacing entire car models, Cheat Engine, etc (some discussion of other methods here: '?do=embed' frameborder='0' data-embedContent>> And here: '?do=embed' frameborder='0' data-embedContent>>) - 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?

I'm afraid I'm having a few problems with this mod. When I try and merge the files with my PIECEDB folder, it comes up with this annoying message:

 

2jHpSRI.png?1

 

Please can you help.  :S

Have you tried opening it with the binary file editor?

Can You add the unique back pieces? If you look at the back of Pharaoh's Mummy's car, that square should be standing not laying down. Also, Rob-N-Hood's crest is green not white.

I was about to ask the same. For some reason,the player cannot use every piece in the game.

NPC cars are single models that the artists created, optimized and textured by hand. Player cars are assemblies of individual brick models. NPC cars can thus be pretty much anything, while player cars have to be built out of a library of pieces.

I've been waiting for a long time to say this because of the renovation but I'll do this quick and simple.

 

Kudos to both Oboeshoes and UTF for making this excellent mod. You guys are the best

 

I would also like to show my custom car for the mod that you guys made but the problem is I don't know how to screenshot in-game. If you guys let me know how to do it, I would be happy to share my creation

@dy_enforcer There should be a PrntScrn (orPrtScn) key on your keyboard.  Hit that (or CTRL+PrtScn depending on if the first method works) and exit the game.  Open paint or whatever picture editor you want and then paste the image in.  Save the file in .png format and then upload the screenshot here.

The game also saves BMP screenshots of its own when you press print screen. If the game is being run as admin, they'll end up in the installation directory (such as C:\Program Files (x86)\LEGO Media\Games\LEGO Racers). Otherwise, they'll likely end up in the VirtualStore - for example, C:\Users\YOURNAMEHERE\AppData\Local\VirtualStore\Program Files (x86)\LEGO Media\Games\LEGO Racers.

 

Note that this applies to the game's save data too; so if you start running it as admin when you haven't before, it won't be able to find your old save data from the VirtualStore unless you copy it over.

 

Of course, they'd need to be converted to PNG anyway - but BMPs are rather large and I thought you should know so you don't end up with tons of them unknowingly sitting around in the VirtualStore.
