Download zip file (33MB)

Extract the files to a folder named "don37" and add the following to the season.ini (where XX is the event number):

[EventXX]
name=Donington Grand Prix 1937
shortname=Donington GP
trackDirectory=don37
numberOfLaps=126
day=2
month=10
startingGrid=2

I think there's a lot of unused rubbish in the zip (hence the size). I tried to remove most of it but I've forgotten which files are needed and which aren't. :idunno:

I'll post updates here from time to time.

NOTES:
It's beta, so obviously incomplete and a bit of a mess in places. If you find any major problems (e.g track won't load, CTD) please let me know; other minor issues I'm probably already aware of so no need to remind of them...
There is AI but it's poor - I only made it to test frame-rate during a race... which is also poor. :rolleyes: Probably best to stick to hot-lapping for the time being.

And finally, please do not use any of the files (3dos, mips, srbs, etc.) while the track is in the beta stage.

Maybe GPL can  ;)

Serves you right  :P an M8F demo run on the 73rd Anniversary of the '37 race indeed (nice one Richard). You would have set half the place on fire.

This is a beta :shock:  Fantastic. The sun shining through the trees is an excellent effect.
I can't wait to get my hands on the finished product, we have a lot to look forward to in GPL world at the moment.
