Setup: PRMs, File Structure


Create a new folder within ...\Re-Volt\levels with the name of your track (keep it lowercase and rather short). In our example, we'll call it toyvolt_rooftops.

The full path could be:

C:\Program Files\Acclaim Entertainment\Re-Volt\levels\toyvolt_rooftops


In my case I have downloaded all the Re-Ville PRMs. I downloaded the textures from the Re-Ville track itself, but other kits have textures in them. I renamed the image files from revillea.bmp to toyvolt_rooftopsa.bmp, till the last image file.

Some of the prms dont have a ncp file. You can use the program called PRM2NCP to generate ncp (collision) files for your prms if you need collision.

.inf File

The .inf file defines parameters for the game so it can see and read the track. Feel free to copy the file below and use it as a template. If you want to disable certain features (like MUSIC), put a semicolon in front of it (this will deactivate the line). Create an empty text file in your track folder and rename it to your track folder name, e.g. testtrack.inf. You will be prompted if you really want to rename it. Click yes.

Copy the following file and customize it to fit your track (you can leave most of the things as they are right now).
