loading new cars from zip files not working
I am loading some new cars from a web site posted in another thread here:

In order to view links, you must have to reply to this thread.

And the guy did a few new cars like Dodge Challenger, Lamborgini Gallardo, Ferrari F40, and etc

I downloaded the zip files from In order to view links, you must have to reply to this thread. and when I unpack them in data/cars I get a directory for each car but when I attempt to use them in the game they don't work. When I try to use them I get the following sorts of errors in my log:

ERROR: Failed to load volan.joe from:, /home/stev/.vdrift/cars/BUGGY, /usr/share/games/vdrift/data/cars/BUGGY, /usr/share/games/vdrift/data/carparts, /usr/share/games/vdrift/data/trackparts
ERROR: Couldn't load spinning car: BUGGY
ERROR: Loading log: Failed to load steering wheel.

ERROR: Failed to load volan.joe from:, /home/stev/.vdrift/cars/CHALLENGER, /usr/share/games/vdrift/data/cars/CHALLENGER, /usr/share/games/vdrift/data/carparts, /usr/share/games/vdrift/data/trackparts
ERROR: Couldn't load spinning car: CHALLENGER

Is there something else I have to do when trying to get these files working in vdrift? The directories look like:

I see the volan.joe file in each of these directories but apparently vdrift is not seeing it.

Any thoughts?

I notice the error message in my log is talking about failing to find a volan.joe file for the cars I am having a problem with but these cars I downloaded from that web site are the ONLY cars in the data/cars directory to actually have a volan.joe file included. None of the cars that actually function have this file present.

Is this a file that has been phased out? Should I try removing the file from one of these directories and see if that fixes the problem?

The .car config file is most probably not compatible any more. It should be easy to fix though. Compare it with one of the car configs in trunk.

Maybe we should include this cars into trunk to keep them up to date. I'll look into it.

I've pushed all but buggy and gallardo(they are from mcrae dirt, nfs) into trunk.

It would be great if someone could check the car, wheel dimensions and other parameters. Some look a bit off.
