Yeah, nice first dash. Like Franch said, it'll be nice if the needles will also be there.

About the Supra, it's a vey nice conversion. The sounds and the tuning are appropriate to this sport car. The paintjobs are awesome.
By the way, there are few problems. The shadow is too narrow, it has too be more wide. The car uses the FNDR objects, but there aren't the .dgbangerdata referiment files in the Banger folder; you have to put they, otherwise the game will crash when the car is blowed up and the FNDR objects are detached. It's pratically the same problem that you had with the breakable objects in your first conversion. Finally, delete the smsupra.bak file; it's the backup of the old .pkg file that the ZModeler renames before export a new one. It's useless for the game and it makes more big the .ar file. :wink:

So the real version of this car uses digital tachometer and speedometer; but anyway you could edit it using the normal ones. Good to add a driver model in it.

PS: I've edited your post deleting the multiple ones, but please, next time don't make double or triple posts after few time just to add some text. It's annoying see this. Use the Edit button above the post content near the Quote one. :wink:

Are you making it editing one of the car cameras? Riva was doing a similar attempt to an his release, but he renounced to do it because of the too bad result.
And in fact this result isn't good too.

I'll try this Mercedes soon.

About a good dashboard picture of the Ford Escort RS Cosworth I don't have found good ones. This is the best one.

Ok, thanks Sajmon, I'll upload it in next week. :)

About the dashboard, I wouldn't use a rendering of the 3D model interiors of a NFS game car model, they're too low detailed. If you really want to use it, at least replace the gauges with some ones taken from a real photo, like the above ones.

Concering the Supra dashboard, it looks so bad in-game mostly because of the colors; the MM2 16bit graphic ruins too much some dashboards, especially the ones with less color smooth.
The white edge on the steering wheel is given by the use of a white background, more, the alpha channel doesn't cut it out well, so you have to make the alpha channel black color more smooth. Just making the background color black instad of white will solve most of this problem giving a better look.
The dashboard is also too stretched up.

I've just said that it has a bad look with that white edge. Replace it with a better one without that problem.

The final version of the Mercedes CLK GTR is the same of the beta, so it becamed the final version of it.
