Hi Chaps
I seem to have this permanent issue with new tracks.
Half the time I get them green in IGOR. and all good

others are N\A and can be joined with IP
still others like Hauls Behra71c up at the moment, I get "not qualifyed to drive in this race"
on attempting IP join.
I have the correct track, mod and car type selected.

In every case I can run these tracks offline

Recently did a total new GPL install from installer and new IGOR GEM+ but that didn't fix it
any clues much appreciated.

The Hauls 1 server may have been setup wrong. It's set for the AT chassis now.

All I can think off is:

- put the track in every season.ini you have, and try it again.
We had a mod55 race last month and had somekind of issue and this helped.

- Are you on the right FPS?
Joining 60fps server needs an adjustment in gpl*.exe

Good luck.

Thanks Warren

If season.ini's are corrupted, GEM+ can be the culprit!

Never let GEM sort a season.ini by directory! You will find strange combinations in those ,ini's...

I allways sort it manually, as a new installed track is added at the bottom.

I added
[Eventxx]
name=Circuit Jean Behra 1971 Club
shortname=behra71c
trackDirectory=behra71c
numberOfLaps=200
day=24
month=11
startingGrid=2
to the bottom of every season .ini and edited the total track number.
Still no green on igor and timed out on IP join
looks I'm a no show this week :(

[Eventxx] needs to be Event20, where 20 is the next higher integer than the [Eventxx] in the entry above the newly added.
Next you need to change the 4th line in the ini to have the same number that the last [Eventxx] has, ie 20 in our case.

PS: Maybe change the number of laps to something less then 128 if it still wont work.

no sorry the XX was my semi literate way of indicating the track number is there...
I always have the correct number in the sequence and the total at the top correct.

if only :-(
Had the 'not qualify' again in ADC today and Warrens Hauls was giving timed out. (both work offline)
Those from IP attempt as both N/A in IGOR
Someone today suggested cleaning out some folder ?and adding just one track at a time but I can't remember which one

I've never had this trouble in all the years with GPL, usually lots of greens in IGOR

The gpl\tracks folder.

Put all its contents into a temporary location like gpl\tracks_temp

Then put a back in a track you're sure you can join online with.  If that works,  Put back several at a time and retest, until the problem arises again.

Then you've narrowed down which track folder is causing the problem.

I followed Bob's method and also did seasons folder.
And there was LoPeN with a green light for the first time in months :)
Thanks Bob, happiness returns
