Calm down chap, I was just messing with you.

I'm still faffing around with bits and pieces and once I've got something people can use I'll let everyone know.

Going back to getting the APC drivable: If you decode and open Scripts.ZAD/Data_Core/Content/Scripts/VehicleGroups.LOL you can add the APC to the unlocked array like so:
unlocked = {
  "EAGLE_R",
  "CLEAVER",
  "TWISTER",
  "TOWMEISTER",
  "COUNTSLASH",
  "CADDY_FAT_CAT",
  "APC"
}

That makes the APC playable without having to replace an existing car. I discovered this while looking for how to change the amount of cars in a race earlier.

Was this in the previous build or the current one? If I replace the VehicleGroups.LOL with a decoded one with this change (no other mods whatsoever), the game won't start ...

I got LOLDecoder working again with the Excelsior evaluation files :) Don't now how or why, don't care either, as long as it works! I don't know how to use the csproj files, as I said, I'm not a programmer.

It was with the previous build, I haven't tried it with the current build.

I found out how to make LOLdecoder.exe work (for me). If you don't want to wait for Trent's independent release for some reason, this is how:

*UPDATE: read below. Only try this if you really want LOLdecoder.exe to work. This way of making it work is a bit ... weird ;)

  1. You need to have BitDefender On-Acces scanning running for this to work (don't ask why).
  2. Download Excelsior Jet 9.0 evaluation version from here.
  3. Install it, at the end of the install, you should get an error (like in this picture). Don't click finish!
  4. Open the Windows task manager (right click taskbar > Task Manager)
  5. End the Excelsior installation process (right click the process > End Task)

It should work now, it did for me. Let me know if it worked for you.

Some notes:

  • I have LOLdecoder.exe and unluac.exe in a directory that doesn't have spaces, just to be sure.
  • I use LOLdecoder 1.21 which Trent made so I could help him figure out what was wrong with it. It should work fine with version 1.2 though.
  • I use Windows 8 (Pro) and I have Java installed, don't think you actually need it.
  • I have BitDefender Internet Security 2014
  • After this whole process I added an exclusion to the BitDefender Antivirus for the entire "C:\jet9.0-eval-x86" folder.

UPDATE:
I know why I get the Excelsior Jet 9 install error now. Because BitDefender IS2014 blocks something at the end of the Excelsior installation. And apparently it is crucial for me that I get that install error, and then kill the install process for LOLdecoder to work ... It can't run the final install steps (some install.bat that can't run I think). So it would be difficult for someone to recreate this I guess, unless you have BitDefender :p

If I install Excelsior Jet without BitDefender on-acces scan running, then it installs just fine, but then LOLdecoder does not work ... Again, I don't know why that is.

Is there a way to 'hand over' threads?
I've been occupied by serious personal matters and because of that not busy with carma for a while (haven't even watched stream or updates to carma yet) would be great if somebody could take on the task of 'keeping this thread alive' (and, more importantly, keep the first post updated)

Ooooh, hard nipples. Noooo.... :( *limp nipples* Hmmm, vanilla nipples!

Deamon, not working. I did not get error. What did I do wrong?

I play more with directory names.

Psycho as driver

Max as penguin

How sad that the penguin was not working as a driver, just empty car.
