Hey man..

Well wheels I can't help with. The only person I know who managed to get wheels properly into game was RC with his pitbike. I know others have managed to get the wheels in but I don't know to what extent. I'd worry about the bike first, which should help you figure out the wheels if someone doesn't come forward.

Start off by reading this http://docs.piboso.com/wiki/index.php/Bike_Creation_Guide

It's a step by step, and necessary.

Then download the bike template. http://forum.mx-bikes.com/index.php?topic=974.0

The bike template is a blender file containing the basic bike shape, parts and groups so you can see how your bike should be laid out. You can export the bike template and run it through fbx2edf with the export script then put the edf in your final folder and see it in game pretty easily. This shows you what you need to do to get your bike ready for export.

Hope that helps.

Hey Alex... if you want to catch me on steam sometime I can help guide you with wheels and bikes and whatever else.
Steam Profile: http://steamcommunity.com/profiles/76561197990491920

Wheels are much like the bikes.
There are a few scripts and you can open the pitbike wheels to get an idea.

All textures and shader scripts work the same as bikes before going through .fbx to .edf.

just be sure to get scale right and you'll need to change some things in the script such as wheel radius, width, etc.

If you want to do an animated chain, that's trickier... but I have been able to get it working. It took me a lot of trial and error to get it to face the right direction and rotate properly. basically the chain has to have a separate material on it, can't remember exactly what it needs to be named off the top of my head... but then in the script you set that material to scroll (animate).

I'm pretty busy usually, but it is possible to catch me on steam.
Good luck

Which issues? adding mud maps, reflections, spec, norm, etc?

It's the same as bikes. you pack them all in the .fbm for the .fbx before running through fbx2edf.
you'll need all the same kind of scripts you would for bike shaders as well.

I get this if I copy something from the original game files to edit. If you download Notepad++ (free) it allows you to 'save as administrator'.

Are you sure you have unzipped/unpacked the files you are trying to modify?
Are you sure they are not read only?
Have you tried copying contents into a new text file?
Have you tried making a copy of the file to modify?

Honestly, if you can't write a .txt or an .ini, it's not the game's fault.

no im not sure about any of it. hence the topic.
i haven't tried copying the file because i didn't think of that. first time doing this so for me its not like 'oh that didnt work ill try this other thing ive done before to fix it'
i have no idea. tried following the guide gone over it a bunch of times but at end of the day nothing is saving anyway.

In Notepad++, when you try and save a file that has permission issues it will say something like 'Can't save, do you want to run Administrator mode?'. You click 'Yes', it re-opens the file (with your changes) and you hit 'save' again and it works.

Alternatively, you should be able to copy all files to your desktop, then move the copies back and it should work.

But Asdrael is right, this problem is nothing to do with the bike making process.
