    Unhappy Specular/Fresnel - not supported in custom liveries on PC2?

    I'm trying to get specular and fresnel to work on the custom livery I'm making.
    After having no luck with file names like "ford_mustang_fastback_1966_livery_spec.dds", I used ProcMon to see what it should be.

    I was surprised to find there AREN'T any other file's loaded besides "ford_mustang_fastback_1966_livery.dds" - the diffuse color.

    The instructions gave a table (shown below) of the file format, and file name to use.

    EDIT!

    It's from 2011! Project Cars 1! Does this mean PC2 doesn't support them anymore?

    It seems they're using another type of shading system.
    I've gathered some info of other forums and they say PC2 custom liveries only support diffuse textures.
    I'm messing with the files right now trying to activate them to have some creative freedom and still no luck.

    It works, but it requires the game files expanded and a bunch of custom coding in the .rcf files... Metallic/matte, wheel files, custom lights, and badges are all possible.
