Some News On A 1968 F1 Mod

12 Oct 2018

Hi everyone.

I just thought there may be 1 or 2 people interested in how a 1968 F1 mod for GPL is coming along. It is getting reasonably close to completion in the amount of work that I have the ability to do. At the end of the year regardless I want to stop work on it. Amazingly I have been working on this since 2013 (I didn't even know it was 5 years until I checked today :o). I did have some breaks over this time including a very long one. I am ready to start enjoying this mod instead of finding something to work on every time I go to do some laps. Now this doesn't mean it will be released when I stop work. If I can't get it up to a high enough standard it will not be released. If I can though I will be happy to share the mod. There will still be lots of testing to do however after I stop work.

All I will say so far is that the mod is split into 2 as an Early and Late 68. Part one starts after the historical 67's finished at the second round of 1968 the Race of Champions up to the French Grand Prix. Part two is the British Grand Prix to the final round in Mexico. In reality the season was split into 2 parts in the same way (discounting the South African GP which has always been a headache for me with historical GPL :P). I will not comment further just yet on why it has been done this way except that I have found no other options. Some problems were encountered doing the mod as a single carset. If a release comes I will explain it more then. I have had a lot of important help with some parts of the mod and it would not be where it is now without it.

I only decided to do this post because of a couple of people here on SRMZ that have shown interest or commented on 68 F1 for GPL before.

I have attached a few screens of the mod.

Poor Fps

13 Oct 2018

Hello.

Back to GPL after some months, Had a big bad surprise.
As the title says, I experiment very low framerate, never had on actual pc in the last 5 years.
Poor I mean I can't reach 36 fps even with only my car on track: it seems to me I'm back to my old PIII computer, or even worse :wall: .
Tried to lower details, no joy; tried to change everything has performance impact into NVIDIA control panel, just a bit of improvment with no AA at all, but not enough.
Maybe it's related to latest NVIDIA drivers, but not sure, so I ask if someone else has installed one of the latest to have a comparison.
BTW, only OpenGL V2 works here.

Quite desperate atm, feeling I will no longer be able to drive GPL after +16 years... :bigcry2:

Season.ini , Gem And Tracks

14 Oct 2018

Posted by Keyser Zose in GPL-"Help! I'm having trouble with..."
I had some issues with my PC and had to restore it backwards a few weeks. In this time Ive downloaded and installed quite a few new tracks and as the folders are still present in my gpl folder, the newer tracks dont show up in GEM. So is there an easy way to rescan the gpl folder or something similar so that GEM re reads all the tracks in gpl?

Gpl Bypasses Start Screen Menu Training, Race, Multiplayer

12 Oct 2018

Posted by Stefan Roess in GPL-"Help! I'm having trouble with..."
Hello guys.

I have a strange problem on one of my servers.

When I start GPL on my server via GEM+ set to Training, mod 65 and track Monza, GPL automatically bypasses the start menu screen and hosts a track Aintree.
Normally GPL should start and stop at the start screen where you can chosse Training, Race, Mutliplayer or Championship.
But strangely GPL automatically bypasses that screen/ menu. But I need to choose Multiplayer to host so that the drivers can join directly via IP as long as the iGOR race list is down.

I persume that there is some setting somewhere in an .ini file. But I can`t find anything in any file.
The only bypass setting is in the iGOR.ini but it is set to "HostbypassMulti = 0". And I think GPL does not read the iGOR.ini when it is starting.

On my 2nd server and on my race PC I don`t have the problem. When I start GPL it stops at the GPL start screen and I can chosse between Training, Race, Multiplayer, ...

Any ideas?

Stefan

12 Oct 2018

Posted by Stefan Roess in GPL-"Hey, anyone need a racer?"
Grand Prix Legends is getting TWENTY!

Let‘s celebrate together with GPLRACER`s very Special Event 2018: MASTER of MODS


Procedure & Rules
- Our two day event starts at 3rd (Saturday) and 4th (Sunday) of November at 20:00 CET

- Race duration max. 30 min.
- All races will be run in the new "LEGENDS of GPL" Mod (please install soon for having some test races)
- Grids: Only the first race will have a short practice (15 min.)! After the 1st race the winner of it will start from last position in the 2nd race, the second driver in front of the last driver, the last driver of the first race gets pole in the second race, and so on
– HANDICAP: The winner of the 2nd race = last position on the grid in third race and so on. If a drivers skips a race, he has to start behind the winner of the last race, means behind the set drivers.
