    Ive been learning how to mod the stock 86 in assetto using config files so i can use the car online

    im able to replace or add body parts, i just learned how to make a working tachometer and now im trying to make a digital dash. i added all the little squares and named them "LED_1" to "LED_50" as a KN5 in the extensions folder and have this in the config.ini ( theres more for the other lights but too much text)
    [EMISSIVE_...]
    NAME=LED_49, LED_50
    BIND_TO=RPM
    COLOR=10,0,0,0.45
    LAG=0.1

    and adding this into the cars digital_instruments.ini makes it work
    [RPM_SERIE_0]
    PREFIX=LED_
    START_INDEX=0
    END_INDEX=20
    RPM_START=0
    RPM_END=2000

    ive been told that adding a folder named "data_overrite" into the extensions folder then adding a new digital_instruments.ini into that with the text should work but it dosnt

    any idea what i need to do?

    data_override :)

    You can put the file in
    content/cars/car_name/skins/skin_id/data_override
    or
    content/cars/car_name/extension/data_override

    The thing with a "ext_config.ini" would be only visual, so that would also work online.

    This thing is only for offline:

    ah ive tried that and ive copied the digital_instrements.ini into that new folder but it didn't work- do i need to write a new config or something? it was working in the data folder but not reading it in the data_override
