Star Are you new in F1 Challenge '99-'02? Start here!
Posted by: Cristian Luis - 05-15-2017, 10:02 PM - Forum: F1 Challenge 99-02 - Replies (2)


Welcome to Race4Sim forums. 

This is one of many F1C communities in activity. As for me, I am "active" in in Wookey's motor-racing history and simulation forum and being ethic with the stuff I do, optimize and share.

Feel free to post any question about F1C in the F1 Challenge '99-'02 section of this forum, but use the search function before doing that! Maybe your issue was solved by other user long ago.

Here it is everything you need about F1C:

F1 Challenge '99-'02 developer's toolbox (including lots of tutorials):

With this, anyone of you can help to contribute to the F1C community and share your improvements (improved AIW's, circuits, release of add-ons, optimize stuff, etc.) You can even convert tracks and racing cars from other racing simulation platforms (mostly rFactor 1). For this last thing, please, never forget to ask for permission to their original authors.

Conversion policy:
As our hobby exists for a long time, there are a lot of work (cars, tracks, Mods...) that have been made by people who do no not care anymore to anwer for email requiring permissions to convert.

So the official Policy of this forum is :

1) Convert tracks for yourself (from Grand Prix Legends, rFactor, Asseto Corsa...) for private use, and test them thoroughly to debug until all errors are fixed. If you are stuck, feel free to ask for some help in this forum. 

Get the F1C developer's toolbox here : 

2) Include EVERYTHING you know about origin of the track in a readme.txt file. Take your time to investigate who is the original creator of the circuit. Respect the original work of other authors is a must. Don't pretend you build from scratch if it is not true.

3) Ask for permission to the author(s) is there is any e-mail available (or account in other forums like DrivingItalia, rFactorCentral, Sim Racing Mirror Zone, etc.)

4) Wait an answer for at least two weeks.

5) If answer is OK or there no answer, or no e-mail available: SHARE. When releasing the mod, car, track or trackpack, the title must include the name of its original author(s), not yours.

6) If authors complain, send him to me (FisicoF1): I'll retire if he prooves ownership. Also, an apology note to that content creator will be posted on this forum.

Now, have fun!

Useful links (F1C):

Other racing platforms:

Extras: (Internet Archive is a sort of digital library that allows you to access to websites of the past) (lots of tutorials) (scientific article whose report claims to have used F1 Challenge '99-'02 for carry out some experiments about algorithms) (a scientific article about that used F1 Challenge '99-'02 for experiments about setups and car performance)

Is there any way to change the LOD and pop in distance? Other cars go down in detail when they're still so close and things pop in close too. Is there any way to change this for modern PCs

Personal Note
Many elements of this release were taken from CrashKing's original 1996 mod.
He did a fantastic job making the 1996 cars and the level of detail and
variations was incredible, something this mod lacks at the moment. Thanks so
much CK for your hard work over the years and sharing it with the community.

Posted by: dmarques - 05-02-2017, 06:06 PM - Forum: Tracks - Replies (20)

Here are a few tracks which I have converted/upgraded over the years. From now on, some of these tracks will be needed and will have to be downloaded in order for my mods to work properly. Each of my mods' threads will indicate which circuits will be needed from this list. If a track indicates that it will replace the default circuits, I suggest you backup the track before installing this new version in case you want to revert back:

New Helicopter Textures
I've replaced the default F1C helicopter with a new one. You'll have to download the new helicopter textures and add them to your Vehicles\CMAPS.MAS file since some of my tracks will need them. If you want all tracks to use the new helicopter model, add the two MTS files into your Vehicles\CDB.MAS file!6o1ACKLL!onoeP8waHJL69...Gp0mQmorA0

  F1C -> rF1 tutorials
Posted by: vico - 03-11-2017, 03:12 AM - Forum: rFactor - Replies (1)

Hi everyone!

Is there any detailed tutorials for track (and car if possible) conversions from F1C to Rfactor 1?

I want to convert the four default F1C seasons and tracks to rFactor (most for fun) but after the Racesimulations and Orkut shutdown i didnt find nothing detailed about this.

Thanks in advance!

Hey Guys,

I need some help in completing a few projects of mine, one being the 1996 F1 mod, the other a whole brand new Monaco, 88-16 variations, based on Carrera.4's rF version and much better than the default one. I need someone to help or explain how dynamic shadows work so that I can apply them when a car goes under trees, bridges or in the tunnel. Also, I need an AIW pro to resolve some issues. If anyone can help, please contact me via this thread or PM. This way, my work can be released for all to enjoy.

  Announcement - I leave the F1C community
Posted by: Cristian Luis - 11-14-2016, 11:50 PM - Forum: F1 Challenge 99-02 - Replies (2)

Good night to everyone.

I am here to... say that I am going to retire from the F1C community.

I will come back. But that will be later than sooner.

I am going to be inactive from tomorrow. My Facebook account is going to be closed.

I have a new job. It's going to occupy a lot of time of my personal life.

So, this is a "see you later".

Here is my goodbye gift to everyone who wants to start messing around in F1C.

<!-- m --><a class="postlink" href="!NhtXBYLK!NLXqWSvBQ9kz_QsC2GT7kQWb6j5PWfdQDv4zplf-xlY">!NhtXBYLK!NLXqWSvBQ9kz ... v4zplf-xlY</a><!-- m -->

Halil İbrahim Şahin. The tutorial functionality for F1C is going to be finished and released. But that will not happen soon. I'll keep all the stuff you have sent me.

If anyone wants to contact me, here is my email: <!-- e --><a href=""></a><!-- e -->.

Thank you to the F1C community for these (almost) ten years,
Cristian Luis

  DTM 2000-2003 mods [R4S exclusive]
Posted by: fisicoF1 - 11-02-2016, 02:01 PM - Forum: Mods - Replies (1)

Here we go, after keeping it at bay for like 2 years, I've decided to release my collected DTM works which cover the early years of the 2nd generation DTM.

The mods are based on GSMF's 2002 DTM mod for F1C, which was converted to rF1 by Turb. Team RMG created a 2003 DTM mod for F1C, either based on GSMF's mod or vice versa, I don't know anymore. Doesn't matter anyways Tongue
Also, a rather unknown guy named Raul_Ninja created the 2000 season for F1C years ago and thus gave me the idea to convert all the existing seasons based on GSMF's 2002 mod to rFactor, covering the 2000 to 2003 seasons.

Before we start with the file links, here's some important information about the installation order (as I think I haven't included a ReadMe, haven't checked the files for a while):

  • Step 1: download & install the 2002 DTM Mod by Turb, as it's the base for the other seasons.
  • Step 2: install any season you want.

So, here we go. All credits (and a huge shoutout) go to GSMF, Team RMG, Turb and Raul_Ninja! They've done pretty much everything -a lot of amazing work- for this mod collection.
2000 DTM v1.0: <!-- m --><a class="postlink" href=""></a><!-- m --> (Credits to: GSMF, Turb and Raul_Ninja)
2001 DTM v1.0: <!-- m --><a class="postlink" href=""></a><!-- m --> (Credits to: GSMF, Turb and Raul_Ninja)
2002 DTM v1.1: <!-- m --><a class="postlink" href=""></a><!-- m --> (Credits to: GSMF and Turb)
2003 DTM v1.5: <!-- m --><a class="postlink" href=""></a><!-- m --> (Credits to: GSMF, Team RMG and Turb)
2004 DTM v0.1: <!-- m --><a class="postlink" href=""></a><!-- m --> (Credits to: GSMF, Team RMG and Turb)
The 2004 file are just three cars, all of them were last-season models used in the 2004 season.

I won't check the forum for any installation issues, as I've written an explanation above!
Again, all credits go to GSMF, Team RMG, Turb and Raul_Ninja. I've just put together the files.
