3rd Party Utilities
1.0 beta - is the first texture manager for Colin McRae
Rally 2. It is brought to you by YellowGarage so unfortunately
the English is poor. Visit their tool section for this download.
1.0 beta - another texture manager from YellowGarage.
This one ups the bar by adding sound management and the
option to attach a jpg image to each skins to help better
track them. I tried the alpha version of this and will tell
you it is not the most user friendly application (mostly
because the English seems a bit off). However, it is only
a beta so things could change.
