View Full Version : CFViewer ?
01-05-2003, 07:38 PM
Has anyone else experienced any problems when trying to use the downloaded backgrounds for the viewer. I downloaded the backgrounds from MG Motorsports www.mg-motorsports.com (http://www.mg-motorsports.com)
What happens is, I can open the background picture just fine but when I try to open the cfv file to position the car the viewer closes on me.
I have done exactly like th readme file says to do.
I was just wondering if anyone else was experiencing the same problem.
thanks in advance

Sorry Gep, can't help ya. I haven't tried any other backgrounds other than the ones that came with it.

I believe it's been decided that the cfv's don't work as planned or hoped. May be path references in it that are throwing it off. What most do is dump the included cfv, position your car manually, then save it as a new cfv.

Gep All you have to do is make sure the 3d backround is off.
I learned this the hard way also. Let me know if this helps.

The only things that I have turned on are the car and the background image.
Is there a place to turn off 3d background or do you mean the floor and the sky

I want to know where I could get that fireworks background? That looks awesome! :roxs:

ok sorry about that.
I place the car in the spot that it is in. If I try to open the .cfv file that came with the daytona background I still get a dump.
I placed the car as best I could and saved it on my own. only took like 10 min and like 30 tries. That is a pain in the ----> :moon:
quick question on the victory lane that has the blank billboard. Is that editable in the viewer or in a 3rd party software only.
i.e. do i have to put my own pic there in photoshop
Oh and M_O'Reilly16
go to: www.mg-motorsports.com (http://www.mg-motorsports.com) for the different backgrounds.

I couldn't find it either so I took a chance and typed it in.

You know, I go to that website like every other day, and never even noticed those backgrounds or those awesome looking dubs cbctech made!
DOH! Thanks for the tip.
