Content Manager (aka alternative launcher)


Recommended Posts

A custom launcher and content management app for Assetto Corsa. Still in development, so not all of its features are available yet.


Kunos career:


RSR (also, there is a Chrome extension for starting an event or installing a setup directly from main web-browser):


Replays managing (including quick sharing):


Car setups managing (again, with sharing):


Car selection:


Also, flexible filtering:


Track selection:


AC settings (works good with presets):


System settings:


Quick Switches (allows, for example, to change controls preset in couple of clicks):


Lite Custom Showroom for skins drawing:


Fancy Custom Showroom for extra fanciness with SSLR and stuff (but overall quite useless):


Cars management:


Livery editor:


Previews updating:


Skins management:


Fonts & PP-filters management:


What you can do with Content Manager now:

  • Customize app appearance, such as theme color;
  • App will try to guess an year for cars using built-in database (a bit obsolete though);
  • Will watch file system and reload content automatically (still could be buggy, that was an extra difficult place).

More information (including download links) is here. Or you can download it directly. Oh, and don’t forget to install addons if you want some additional features (such as PSD loading for custom showroom)! Some other features, such as online or tracks managing, are still not finished. I’m working on them now (you can always check how it goes here).

Ciao a tutti! Chi di voi usa questo Content Manager? Mi incuriosisce, ma ho alcuni dubbi:

-É possibile fare i Custom Championship?

-Sostituisce definitivamente il Launcher predefinito? Se non mi piacesse il CM, come tornare al launcher predefinito?

-Quali caratteristiche mancano alla versione lite?

Spero possiate aiutarmi!

Ilja Jusupov "X4FAB", autore del Content Manager, è al lavoro su altre novità...

Hi! My name is Ilja Jusupov, and I’ve been creating some modifications for a racing simulator called Assetto Corsa for the last 3 years. I’ve made things like an alternative open-source launcher called Content Manager (with Custom Showroom), new content, or that custom shaders patch adding things like dynamic lights, flexible and damageable tyresvertex AO or new AI behavior.
With your help, I’m able to spend more time working on these and new projects, and adding more and more features to the custom shaders patch. And you’ll get a key to AC Content Manager, which will grant you an early access to the new features!
