Well boys, I've kind of burnt myself out on iRacing and miss the old days of GPL.  So, I plan to load GPL on my new PC and give it another go.  Boy, I'm really sadn't about RSC.  If they in fact don't come back, I'm wondering if there is a way to some how offload everything to another location that we can access.

I may need more help than normal getting everything reconfigured just right because RSC is down.  I would appreciate everyone's help.

Stuart

Hi Stu!

Nice to see you back in GPL. I never wondered if you come back but when. ;)

Thank God - Bob and his FAQ is still with us. This page also is a very recommended starting point for a GPL quest: http://www.gpllinks.org/ ...but I think you allready know this. Thank you for this one by the way! ;) :D

For a detailed "How to install GPL in all its glory" this site still provides reliable and up-to-date reading and links: http://www.srworld.eu/

"Stuboyle's Sunday Pickup" suffered serious fall-off with the disappearance of RSC as organization medium but it still exists. Unfortunately my time schedule makes it difficult for me to participate.  :rolleyes: But I could make one Sunday free for Sunday Pickup that you can show me/us what you learned with iRacing. :)

Thanks Martin and Thomas.  Its good to be back.  Yes, the old GPLinks.org page should be helpful in getting back up to speed.  It take me a bit of time before I'm ready to run the Sunday pickup races again.  I'm pretty casual about my driving now.

Thanks Achim.  You know what miss now are all those track update you did for our Sunday pickup races which you posted on RSC.

Did you ever get you 66 mod working?

BTW, I've got a X850XT PCI-E card for you if you want it.  No charge.  Just pay the shipping.

Hi Stuart !

No, never get running the 66er-mod here on my old computer. I think the number of the carslots of the 66er kills my CPU. It is not a question of graphic-card. Only a brand new computer will help. Maybe the Targa-release can move my a** to the computer-dealer. Have you seen the prewiew-video from Targa ? It is a must have.

Thanks for offer the graphic-card, but don't help on my old system. No improvements and a lot of changes on my system will follow. By change i will lost a lot of installed old games for only 3dfx. So i will stay on old system with my voodoo. I do a lot of work in GPL for optimise more then 400 tracks and different mods to run on 3dfx smooth. No risk, sorry.

My work on 66er-mod-lite-set is allready saved here at SRMZ (1 zip for complete set).

The sunday-picup maybe planing the last race with the brandnew 65er-patch. So there is hope to see you on track again. Or make i visit on my home-server GPLRACER. Most of the time some servers are 24 hours in iGOR.

Greetings

Achim

Thanks Stewart, Rob and Bill.

I've actually got some new computer hardware on order now.  I splurged and got the new Intel i7-920 CPU with 6gb of RAM.  I suspect it will have no trouble with GPL.
