First of all this car looks great!
But something worries me, am I the only one who is experiencing graphical problems with the new viewer?

Rims and glass parts disappearing, reflections disappearing and appearing (mainly of the windows), solid parts showing as if they where made of glass and the other way around…. Got these problems with every car in the viewer.


I’ve got no problems with the previous version of the viewer, downloading the new viewer again didn't solve my problem.

Hardware: P4 @ 2.4GHZ / 640MB / Nvidia GeForce FX 5700 256MB / Windows XP pro.

I’m a bit worried because this might happen to LFS after the upcoming patch. Been playing LFS sins the beginning of 2003 without any graphical problems.

You extracted it into it's own directory, correct?
i have some problems with the VWS, it turns into purple and that stuff.. while moving it in the viewer
lol @ missing rims. I tried playing with the wheel files for VWS/FBM, but then things didn't the way I wanted.I was expecting 'O.Z.' wheels on the VWS... but yeah...
mine doesnt work either but in a completely different way when i restart pc it works fine then after some exits it goes banana also thought i should include the deb file so you maybe can help

No, you are not the only one. I think about three other people have reported that. We'd better try and figure out the pattern.

Can anyone who sees this fault please report their graphics card and drivers version?

And can anyone else with the same graphics card let us know if it works ok on your computer, and if so, which driver version you are using?
is this scirocco gonna have rallycross setup?
Scawen, any slight updates to the 2006 Sauber?
I do get a graphics problem, but I have to load every car on in the viewer at least once (from memory first time I saw it I loaded the VWS then every car from top to bottom, then the VWS again), for some reason most of the textures are dumped and I have to restart to fix it, which I suspect could be a drivers issue (Catalyst® Version 08.7 on an X1900XTX).

A lot of what I am seeing as issues in here are usually caused by drivers.

^^^^^^^^^^^^^ demo racer ^^ but no

Well to be complete:
Nvidia GeForce FX 5700
6.14.10.9371
(Foreceware 93.71)

I've just updated to the latest drivers from Nvidia (Driver version 6.14.11.7519), but still got the same problems. Even looks like I got more problems now. In some views from beneath the car when I move the mouse I get pollys (spelling) gone insane. No way to get a screenshot because it's gone as soon as I press the Print Scrn button.

i wonder if developers want to use dx9/10 shaders in future.. because its still based on dx8?

I get this
Great car, and made very, very nice! I like the interior too. Great that it's finally getting some more great depth (armrests/doorpanels) instead of just dds pictures!
Quote from Scawen :
So... it'll be a nice patch with some noticeable improvements and the new car, but not really representative of the amount of work that has been done since patch Z.

so did you do much more but unfinished improvements?
btw.. my old questin is still not answerd :S
What about confort and sport mode ?? it's different setup or real time change ?
The only graphical issue I'm seeing is that the tires come down below the shadows in the viewer where they didn't previously. Makes it look somewhat odd when viewing at nearly ground-level.
great news! really looking forward to it!

...hoping for the possibility of taking the new car to the dirt track!
Fantastic detail on the new car... The interior is stunning, and little details like the disc brakes and caliper looks very nice too. Starting to take LFS cars to a new level, nice to see.

That photo of the blue race Scirocco with the number and Nurburgring map on it is very nice! Someone should make a skin of that in LFS
I tried to compare real car to LFS one. Nice, almost the same.

This is a hard choice for me, what shall i buy first in [TC], the FXO, or the Scirocco
Quote from Flame CZE :I tried to compare real car to LFS one. Nice, almost the same.

Side on, it looks like an estate.
I think the first thing i will do when the scirrocco comes out is to crash it into a red and white barrier to find out if it flies
