Videos are Xvid encoded and it's a quite widely used format, you should have no trouble finding codecs via Google!
Nothing special really as I'm not into video as a profession. Fraps sucked up the footage, editing and audio manipulation was chopped together in Vegas and output raw AVI encoded in Virtualdub.
I'm having hard time considering these movies to be 'promotional quality' so I stuck with Blackwood + XRT because everyone is familiar with them - and no matter what the track or car, the good racing manners should be enforced.
I haven't driven much Banger Racing, used 3rd party apps (like Pitspotter) or gone around any oval so I don't know much about them.
I think there's no wrecker problem on the licensed side of LFS. Sure you get a an occasional dumbass plow into you in T1, but deliberate wreckers are banned fast from online servers. And they don't deserve any attention - just a silent execution via banlist.txt.
Easy with the bold type. Short explanations of the penalties is a good suggestion nevertheless.
EDIT: Oh yeah blue flag is coming next, but I gotta figure out how to make the AI blue flag me properly or hire someone to drive with me on an empty server. And then it's bound to go wrong and I can't keep my car on the road for more than 5 secs.
