VR mirror app from GTPlanet new

    assuming you are using shader light patch, if you don't, you should, that is the mother of all mods, just after CM!
    paste
    [REAL_MIRRORS]
    ENABLED=1
    SHOW_CAR=1
    in extension/cfg/smart_mirros.ini
    It will give you virtually (pun intended) a real view in the mirrors, you will see the side of the car in the exterior mirrors, the back of the car in the inside mirrors, that with the parallax we already had with shader light patch, makes for a alleluia vr experience in AC.

Would really like to try this set up, have downloaded ACC ext mirrors app, Content manager lite, and lights patch v0.123 preview65.
I'm certainly not a computer wizard so would like some help on how to get this installed & running. (don't want to unpack files to wrong place) :-[

From what I understand the acc ext mirrors app goes into AC the same as usual so no dramas there.
For Content manager wondering where's the best place to unzip this to? (apparently need CM to install the lights patch)
Now the lights patch, do I unzip this somewhere or will CM do this when it's activated. Have Windows on c: drive & Steam, AC, and all games on D: drive.
All new to me so any help much appreciated  ;) I know a few people run CM here and swear by it.  Thanks all Cheers Dave O.

I haven't tried these apps but usually you can just drag the files from your downloads to an open window of cm and cm sorts it out (from the 3 line menu icon in cm) it could be different for this app however

Does this help, I would like to try this too but am afraid of stuffing up my AC install.

1. Download Content Manager:

https://assettocorsa.club/content-manager.html

To get the full version, make a donation (any amount will do) for x4fab, the guy behind CM and shaders. He deserves it.

2. Install a weather mod, with 24h time support:

Content Manager allows using times of day outside default AC's 8:00-18:00. It also allows loading tailor-made cloud textures, lighting and PP filters, for each condition.

For example, two good options:

https://www.racedepartment.com/downloads/good-and-bad-weather-suite.19484/
https://www.racedepartment.com/downloads/assetto4seasons.21408/

Follow the installation instructions of respective mods.

3. Install custom shaders:

https://acstuff.ru/f/d/28-shaders-patch-dynamic-lights

In addition to night racing, they allow other cool stuff, like

- Visual tyre flex
- Working cockpit lighting
- Different color headlights depending on car
- Mirrors that work more like real mirrors (viewpoint moves when you move, TrackIR or VR)
- Support for working odometers, clocks and other dash instruments (Odometer requires Stereos odometer app)
- Working frog-eye lights (like F40) that gradually lift up
- Working blinkers (currently enabled in very low speed turns, for selected test cars)
- Headlights break with damage
- Possibility for full track lighting

Some of this works only in beta version of the shaders (soon to be released v0.1.23).
If you want them early, head to shaders Discord: https://discord.gg/FEztNRE

... (don't want to unpack files to wrong place) :-[ ...

Just drag any* mod archive (zip rar 7zip etc) onto CM and it installs it for you. :) *(occasionally this won't work)
To update the shaders patch, as above but first go to 'content>mods' in CM and disable the patch. Then after the update re-enable the patch.

I'm going to need more info.
Tried dragging 4 seasons over just about every window in CM and nothing happens.
Went to install manually but have no idea where the files go.

I tried dragging the shader light patch into CM last night and it said installing, but it just seemed to hang.
There is a MOD section in CM that is greyed out, and when you mouse over it it says not available in Lite Version.
I'm guessing that's why the install hung. Going to upgrade to the full version and try again. Am guessing you need
the MOD section working to activate your mods.   Dave O.

This may help DaveO.

    Loving the mirror mod but just can't seem to get the show_car option to work. Any tips?

You should see this:
[REAL_MIRRORS]
ENABLED=1
SHOW_CAR=1
VR_STEREO=1
VR_LOCK=0
SHOW_HEAD=1
RENDER_PER_FRAME=2 ; set it to 1 to make real mirrors refresh less frequent, but have practically zero FPS cost
RENDER_ONLY_VISIBLE=1 ; doesn’t work with virtual mirror at the moment
in there:
C:\Users\you\Documents\Assetto Corsa\cfg\extension/smart_mirror.ini
if you do not have this there, copy it here:
C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\assettocorsa\extension\config
and paste it, that way you don't have to re-write it with each update
Show_head=1 is also excellent and is available in preview 77
=1 is on, =0 is off
