Hi Ernie

I think the problem is because the 'ui.res' file is 0kb ? (have a look) try and swap the file with one from another ukdirt mod.

I think the ui.res file from other mods will work.....

If not then when I catch you on msn next i'll send a working version over.

The ui.res files I've downloaded for F2s and for Legends both end up not working. I think this is because the installer uses a DOS batch script which does not work as intended on most XP systems. Unfortunately, the script does succesfully delete the files involved so you can't fix it yourself.

All my mods have the UKDirt F1 ui.res... If I could get a look at the installer routines, I could probably make something that would work for everyone- by tring the batch file first, checking the size of the ui.res file, then either cleaning up, or running a vbs script to do the same stuff. vbs tends not to work too well on Win98 etc, so you couldn't replace the batch files with it completely.

Does this mean that i can replace the ui.res file from the Ukdirtf1 for the ukdirtbanger ui.res file and the banger game will work ??or am I not right in that ?

best thing to do is put the ui.res from home on the cd as a backup wink.gif

While i understand that that does work Ernie, i've noticed that one of the websites offering a link to 'essentials' also offers a link to a nascar heat 1.1 demo - its possible that this will include the UI that can then be used by the mods for the copying thereof (try here). My understanding is that the essentials in itself is more of a toolbox that allows you to run Heat mods......the demo is like nascar heat without the US tracks and paintskins etc included so it might be worth trying the essentials with the demo THEN installing a mod to see if thats where it recovers the UI from.

hope this helps........... Wrighty  thumbs_up.gif

The Hot Rod ui file should work Frank.  I downloaded essentials from the mod squad and just copied the file over from Rods, fired it up and was away.
