Check out the screenshots:

I saw this over at www.xboxxn.com. Thought I'd never see such a great thing on the original Forza!

The same guy made a Richard Burns Rally modpack too "Richard Burns Rally TeamPM pack by Frito v.1.0" but I can't find it anywhere (torrent and rs links are dead) - I don't suppose anyone can upload it somewhere?

Here's the source:

http://www.xboxxn.co...opic.php?t=1924

Doing a google translate from Polish, he's done a few mods - the in-car mod, removing bonnet, removing bumper and low-profile tyres.

The Richard Burns mod page is here:
http://www.xboxxn.co...topic.php?t=996

This improved the car and driver textures, improved the in-car view
(behind the wheel, not in the centre of the car), improved sounds and polish speech and language.

Ok, here's how it's done. If anyone could try this out and confirm it works for them that would be great.

CODE

Forza Motorsport  -  Cockpit View Mod
=====================================


Setup steps:
============

1) Download the tool
Download and extract EkszBox-ForzaMod v1.2 Beta from here:
http://sourceforge.net/projects/ekszboxforzamod/files/EkszBox-ForzaMod%20-%20Binary/EkszBox-ForzaMod_v1.2_Beta/

2) Patch your Forza xbe
Following the instructions in the above archive, patch your default.xbe file. This allows Forza to use a separate cars.ca2 file called ModCars.ca2 (in the same directory as default.xbe). Note: this assumes you have Forza installed on your hard drive.

3) Copy cars.ca2
Copy your original cars.ca2 file to your PC.


The Mod
=======
1) Start up ForzaMod.exe, and open your "Cars.ca2" file.

2) Select the car make you want to modify from the 'Marque' box at the top, and browse to the car you want to edit.

3) Select 'nontooldata.xml', and edit the following line:
<FollowCamData    height="0.35" radius="2.60" targetY="-0.12" />

The 3 paramaters work as follows:
height = height
radius = adjust view forward/backwards
targetY = look up/down

4) When you're done, click "Save Edit", then "Pack/Create Modded .ca2 File". Transfer the "ModCars.ca2" file to the same directory as Forza's default.xbe on your xbox.


Tips
====
The mod works by replacing one of the chase-cams with the in-car view.  Searching around for the right values can be laborious, but the following will speed things up:
1) Try different values in FollowCamData and FollowCamData2, this way you can test 2 sets of values in the same go.
2) Modify several cars at a time.
3) Start with a guess based on values you know work in another car (always start with the same height and targetY values, as this will make the view look horizontally forward).


Limitations
===========
1) There are limits on viewing positions for some cars. For example, you cannot get a great driver view on the Porsche Carrera GT, if you shift the view (radius) too far forward, then you will end up looking directly down at your handbrake. If you adjust the view right up to the limit of this problem, then the view will go jerky as you go round corners, so you need to back off a little more.
2) The views will not work properly in split screen mode.
3) Every car must be individually modded! Actually this is an advantage, and allows us to customize the view for each car, avoiding rear-view mirrors when necessary (not possible with the Project Gotham Racing 2 in-car view mod).


Help! (Version 1)
=================
Below are the parameters I've worked out for various cars so far (I mostly started with D-class cars). If anyone can contribute to this list then please post the view to your favorite car in the xbox-scene.com forums (Forza Hacking subforum).
