Quote from: iNsane | WeekendWarriors on April 08, 2020, 01:34:10 AMHello everyone.So, beta14 has been released recently and one of my suggestions has been implemented but yet not activated.I've done that for you.It may be an unecessary feature but I thought it'll be cool to have it. Also it opens up some more opportunities.I present to you:Show Bike Logo in Default UITable of content:What it doesDownloadInstallationCreate Custom/New LogosCreditsJump to end because the tutorial is unnecessary and I just want to leave a commentWhat it does:It shows a new rounded box in all Bike Selection Menus (Main Menu -> Bike Selection; Before a Session -> Bike Selection; both Selections -> Bike Info) which contains a Logo which can be included in new bike releases.Download:Download via OneDriveInstallation:Extract the content of the .ZIP into your MX Bikes Installation Directory.e.g.:Steam VersionC:\Program Files\Steam\SteamApps\common\MX Bikes\StandaloneC:\Program Files\MX Bikes\!!! This is not a mod that works via the mods folder way. It has to be inserted into the Installation Directory. !!!Create Custom/New Logos: SKIP SKIP SKIPIf you want to change the logo to your own preferences, feel free to do so.Grab the template .PSD in this ZIP and follow the next little steps:SHORT:The logo needs to be masked in the alpha channel, so it'll actually have transparency. Try to work with solid colors instead of whole images as this might make the quality really bad.LONG:1. Open up the Template2. Remove the Example layers (except "work here" folder)3. Switch over to the "channels" tab and make the alpha channel visible only4. Click on the alpha channel and CTRL + A to select everything on that layer and hit DEL to remove its content5. Insert your desired logo into the "work here" folder6. Scale it so it fits into the "work here" mask7. For better quality make sure to fill the background with colors instead of using the logo as a whole. Using the logo as direct layer for the alpha channel might have weird borders around.8. CTRL + Left Mouse Button onto the picture you've inserted to only select the actual pixels in that layer9. Switch over to the "channels" tab again, make the alpha channel visible only and click on it to edit the layer10. Right click in your current selection and select "Fill"11. In the color options select "White"12. It should look like this now13. Save it as 32 Bit .TGA image in the desired bike folder and name it "logo.tga"14. If it's a bike without a logo, open up the .INI file of it and add the line "logo=logo.tga" below "garage_pic="15. DoneCredits: for the game and implementing my suggestion, thanks!@StoneRider for the MSM logo!

There are no Steam Folders in Program Files they are in Program Files(86) at least in the Steam Game. Here is the path on my computer. C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\MX Bikes

C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\MX Bikesthanks for the note, I just typed down an example as for myself I don't use the default path and drive but something like E:\GAMES\Steam\...I wanted to appeal to common sense of people to find their own Steam folder Most important is to put the content of the ZIP into the Installation Directory, which is located in \Steam\steamapps\...
