Too Fast?

24 Nov 2020

Posted by John Woods in GPL-"Help! I'm having trouble with..."
Been wondering for a few days whether Grand Prix Legends might play better if things were slowed a bit.

Recently installed, (had installed), a 500GB SSD drive and a GTX 1650 Super(4GB). Can now reboot Win10 in about maybe less than 30secs.

Everything is blinkblinkblink.
The pace is frantic.

But, have been messing with fps issues ever since.

Found it is possible to drive on-line at 4fps and continue on until whatever is hanging up figures it out and gets things back to routine fps, (35.xx/36), as long as the car is on a straight it is not catastrophic.

Otherwise it is a time warp nightmare because FFB and steering control checks out as well. No hope if caught in the wrong place.

Or it gets so bad there is no going on.

The issue just comes and goes with no apparent consistency or correlation to graphics or track position., on-line or not.

So far no amount of tweaking, (4GB patch, Win10/Nvidia/GPL settings) has had much if any effect.

As hardware gets faster and faster is it possible some GPL issues are caused by things happening too fast?


How can things be slowed a bit to test that?

Or is this just yet another early morning silly idea?

Car Files And Car Numbers

24 Nov 2020

I'm fiddling around with the 1966 mod, where I'm trying to get Mike Parkes into the Ferrari 246.

Currently he is in the Ferrari 312 66A (team_number = 9, team_order = 2 in the driv66.ini).
Lorenzo Bandini is in the Ferrari 312 66B (team_number = 9, team_order = 1 in the driv66.ini).

Both sets of graphics are in the cars/cars66/ferrari folder.
First Question: What parameter in the driv66.ini determines which Ferrari is assigned to the drivers?
Note: I tried making Parkes drive the Ferrari 312 66B by changing team_order = 1, but that did not change his car.

Next, I tried making Parkes drive the Ferrari 246 by changing team_number = 10.
The graphics for the 246 are in the cars/cars66/c11 folder.
That worked, but the car has no number (despite having the 22 skin in the c11 folder).
Second Question: Why doesn't the car display the number?

Thanks in advance for any insight you can provide!

Chat Not Working In Igor

Today, 01:10 AM

Lately, the chat rooms have stopped working for me in Igor. It's not a major issue as I can see and join races just fine. I just feel a little rude as it makes me look like a terrible guest at a party... I turn up without saying hello, eat the food and drink the drinks and then leave without saying thank you or goodbye. At least there's the in-game chat.

Has anyone else got this issue? I've tried everything possible from within Igor itself.

I did a new install and wasn't paying attention. My setup menu is in metric. I looked in the player file and it  has nationality but it's just a number. It's 26. Anybody know what I should change it to?

Struggle With Screen

24 Nov 2020


so the other day I got a friend of mine into the idea of trying out GPL and as he liked it, we got to work. Having sorted out some things, we got the game up and running for him, yet one issue is left:

The resolution is set to 1920x1080, OS is Win10, notebook in general is a Lenovo Y520.

Has anybody got an idea/ran into the same issue before?

Thanks in advance
