    TDU2 VehiclePropertyEditor: Ver3.5.1.8 released.

    I reverted public version to ver 3.5.1.8.
    Ver3.5.1.9 released yesterday canceled because it turned out that I made a bug in "export all items to CSV" function.


    Changes - ver3.5.1.8
    Fixed: An error that "db_data.dec file is missing" occured.
    FIxed: Brand name change function was not working properly.

    Changes histry
    Changes - ver3.5.1.7
    Fixed: Bug that minus (-) value can not be entered.

    Changes - ver3.5.1.6
    Fixed: Bugs where editing on tire, rim, brand name was not functioning properly.
    Fixed: Suppressed the potential to rise the error "Another application is using db_data.dec" as much as possible.
    Other, minor bug modification

    Changes - ver3.5.1.4
    Fix: When importing "_tireDB.csv" an error message dialog rise.
    Fix: The brand name editor in "Name" tab page was not working properly.

    Changes - ver3.5.1.3
    Fix: When loading specific vehicle data, there was a bug in which an error "No Unicode mapping ..." was displayed.

    Changes - ver3.5.1.2
    Fix: The error dialog box "Not enough space" error is no longer displayed.
    - If an "insufficient space" error occurs, a log file is generated indicating the point at which the error occurred.
    Note:
    If an "insufficient space" error occurs, try re-importing by referring to the log, shortening the character string length, etc. If it is the same length or shorter than the length of the original string, you can reliably import it.
    Also, the map of the space for the string is refreshed each time vpe is started. If an error occurs, restarting vpe and re-importing may fix the error.

    Changes - ver3.5.1.1Fixed: Suppressed unnecessary "Not enough spaces.." error.

    Note: There are the following problems in this version.
    If you import csv generated when using different generations of db_data.cpr, "Not enough spaces.." errors are more likely to occur.
    For example, when importing csv generated in up04 when running "v34b16 system", "Not enough spaces" error occurs.
    If "Not enough spaces" error occurs, please stop the process of tdu2vpe by Task Manager. (Although you can quit tdu2vpe by clicking the OK button several hundred times.)

    Changes - ver3.5.1.0
    New: The following items can be exported to CSV file. In addition, it is now possible to read and reflect those edited CSV files.
    - All items concerning the performance of the vehicle
    - Tire / rim combination
    - Interior and exterior colors
    - Placing the vehicle in the dealer

    Changes - ver3.5.0.8
    Fixed: A bug that rewrites the value of gravity center height.

    Changes - ver3.5.0.7
    The following was added:
    - Chart for speed vs rpm per gear ratio.
    - Display for the estimated maximum speed after changing the gear ratio and the predicted value of 0 - 100km / h time.
    Fixed: Some minor bugs.
    Note: The above values are rather rough values, and in reality there may be big differences. Please be aware.

    Changes - ver3.5.0.5Fixed: The phenomenon that the display of model name garbled. Notation like "R34 GT - R Nür" has become possible.
    Special thanks:
    As for color change, information from mitkop81 has become very helpful.

    Changes - ver3.5.0.3
    New: Changes related to car body color and indoor color are now available.
    Fixed: Reexamined the code that may be dependent on the Windows version.
    Others: "IniLdr.exe" which was included in the old version is no longer needed.

    Changes - ver3.3.0.5
    Fixed: The bug by which a vehicle name and data are overwritten without intending.
    .When you work such as the following, there was a bug in which the vehicle name and the data is overwritten.
    .Load data "Audi TTRS Roadstar" - Change vehicle list to "Audi S3" - Click the "Apply" button --- Then S3 is overwritten by TTRS.

    Cahnges - ver3.3.0.4
    Fixed: Access violation error had occurred in a particular vehicle.
    - If not find assigned rim, VPE will look for the unused Car-ID, and register the rim set to the database automatically.

    Cahnges - ver3.3.0.1
    Fixed: an error occurs when loaded unreleased vehicle data.

    Cganges - ver3.3.0.0
    It has become possible to assign a plurality of rims. Like other normal vehicle, you can select the rim at the time of purchase, it was able to or replace the rim in the tuning shop.

    About changing the tire size;
    The combination of a large number of tire and the rim is built into the game. If you want to change the tire size, it is more easy to use by selecting the appropriate combination from among its combination.
    You can also change the tire size by changing yourself, such as rim size in combination. The diameter of the tire I can be calculated by the following formula.

    (Tire Width)*(Tire profile)*2 + (Rim diameter) Here, the "Tire profile" is tire aspect ratio.
    How to add new Rim set:
    When you click the ADD button, the Rim list will open. After selecting the appropriate set of rims, to add onto the list of VPE click the "Add this combination" button or double-click on the list.
    There are unused rim, the vehicle ID to which they are assigned is indicated by negative numbers. Since they are not in use, it seems to affect risk is not in the other vehicle. So, I think that they are suitable for use in MOD.

    Removing assigned rim set:
    Click "Remove" button. Deleted rim set is assigned to the vehicle id 999.

    Basis of how to add a vehicle to the new slot:
    After editing desired items, on the "Miscellaneous" page ..
    1. Set the file name.
    These file names will be the basis for the file name of the sound, 3d models and HUD. For example, if you write "z4", file names such as "z4.bnk", "z4_i.bnk","z4_med.bnk" and "z4_high.bnk" will be generated.
    2. Put a check mark in the flag "isValidPC"
    If you forget this, it will not be displayed on dealer shop.
    3. Re-set the combination of ID number if necessary.
    4. Click "Apply" button to complete all changes, ant then quit tdu2vpe.exe once.

    After that, restart tdu2vpe.exe. Then..

    6. Open the "Dealership" page.., After selecting a dealer, put a check mark in the empty slot.
    7. Click on the "Add the current vehicle .." button.
    8. Finally, click on the "Apply" button.
    If you forgot to press this button, all of the changes will not be reflected in the database.

    About brand name change:
    Brand of vehicle can be changed using brand selector. If the brand not be listed in the brand selector, use "Brand name editor".
    Using the brand name editing function, you can redefine the unnecessary brand name as the desired brand name. Once you redefine the brand name, it will be able to be treated as a normal brand from the next.
    Caution! Change of brand name by this feature will affect all vehicles.

    How to set a sticker file name:
    Using tdu2vpe;
    - Open the tab page by following the "Miscellaneous"-"Sensitive data"-"file name definition".
    - Write the file name to the column "sticker file name".
    - Click "Apply" button.

    Prepare a file for the sticker;

    - Put xx.2db file to the folder "TDU2 root folder\ Euro\Bnk\scenarics\stickers"

    Note:
    - If you put a sticker in this technique, the same sticker to all vehicles of the same model is attached.

    About using the "Unreleased vehicle":
    -For the speed limitation 69km/h:
    Open the Misc-All items, please set the values of the following three items.
    traction_control --> 1 (0 or 1)
    TC_SlipRatioHypersport --> -1
    TC_SlipRatioSecure --> -1
    TC_SlipRatioSport --> 0.1

    -For the matter by which a brake doesn't work.
    Open the Brake performance, please set the value for each item of "Brake slip ratio".
    The value which should be set consult the value of the other normal vehicles. Trial and error might be necessary.

    It should be noted that part of the unreleased vehicle there is a case in the above matters is not required.

    really good job binbow. This has enabled me to enjoy TDU2 that much more. I can now use all the cars for races (C2,C1,B2) by changing class and editing stats to fit the categories. I like diversity in my games, so this truly makes it much more enjoyable for me. Thanks again. I do have a question. Do you know what the impact is of each stat upon the cars. I am ignorant when it comes to this and do some "guess work" when I want to make a car accelerate more or have more grip. If you have a guide about the functionality and it's affect, that would be very useful. Thanks again.

    Guys, thank you for your comment.:) If you find a useful parameter, please let us know.

    @blyingling
    About grip performance; There are many factors affecting to the grip, such as suspension dampers, anti-roll bar, the weight, and a center-of-gravity position.There is no best setting to anyone. You can only find the combination of values of preference on their own.;)

    I think I find a bug. :(

    When I change any brand to Ferrari in the name editor, it will change to Bristol in the game and all the Ferrari change also to Porsche. :confused:

    Can you check it please?

    Thanks.

    Thank you for the report.
    But I could not reproduce the problem on my site. Which vehicle did you tried to change to Ferrari? Could you please show me about detail?
    Apart from that, there is a bug that changing to "Ferrari" becomes it to "Dino (Ferrari)". This problem only on tdu2vpe. Is in the game to be displayed correctly. For this I am considering the bug fixes of way.

    The first vehicle I tried to change to Ferrari was the Pagani Zonda F, but then I test also with others vehicles and I had the same bug.

    I Install the AUTOPACK 1.0.0 beta made by mitkop81 and maybe the Pack conflicts with your editor.

    Ah,, that's why. It does not correspond to the AUTOPACK 1.0.0 beta. Future by modifying the TDU2DBCarList.xml, it is expected to be adapted.

    Hi, thanks for the tool, it's very useful ! I have just one problem with it : i can't change the number of turbos (I tried on a Mitsubishi Evo which replace the Aston martin V12 Vantage, the original Aston does not have a turbo contrary to the Mitsubishi). Do you have any idea about that plz ?

    I have found a way to solve that : you have to go in "Miscellaneous", open "ALL items", look for the item called "numOfTurbo", choose the value you want and then click on "Write to Data Buffer" and it works.
