Gem+ Guide/tutorial In Pdf?

Today, 07:44 AM

Hi all.
As I wrote in recent posts, I am coming back to GPL after many years, After some initial problems now I have a basic installation correctly working. At this point I would like to explore the rich world of the mods, so I installed GEM+ and tried to read the related threads here, as the interesting one related to the different types of installations. I noticed that many of you are probably experts, but for people that just start with the mod management some concepts can not be immediately clear, as carsets or seasons.
So I am trying to better understand the GEM+ procedures, and I noticed that the Help of the program is quite clear, but the format (Windows Help) is not much comfortable, with all the nested menus. Do you know if the same help or some other good guides for GEM+ are available in pdf format? I think that this could be useful for other new/returning users of GPL.

Curiosity, Why I (And Others) Have Guy Ligier In The Profile?

17 Sep 2017

Posted by Antlab in Member Feedback
Hi all.
Just a curiosity from a recent member. Only today I noticed that I, and also others posters, have "Guy Ligier" in the profile, but I did not find the reference to the famous pilot in the page where I can edit my profile. Maybe is a sort of geographical reference (I am from Italy, quite close to France in a worldwide perspective) or are there other, more subtle or more casual, reasons?

Driver's View Adjustment Question.

15 Sep 2017

Hello there.

Is it possible to adjust vertical position of driver's point of view for individual car without some in-depth knowledge of 3do files editing? I suppose not, but I'll ask anyway.

Spending again some more time with '71 CanAm mod lately, and watching photos of the real M8F I came to conclusion that either fences in the cockpit 3D model were modelled a tad too high, or driver's position is a tad too low (I have no complaints about external model), making spotting the lower cars driving door to door with me almost impossible. I'd love to elevate the view point a little higher. I know I can do it globally via GPLShift, but I don't want to mess up all other cars and mods (have been using a single install for all GPL content).

Crashing On The Monza Banking (Not In The Fun Way) - Gpl.exe Has Stopped Working

13 Sep 2017

Posted by BorderReiver in GPL-"Help! I'm having trouble with..."
Hey Guys,

I wonder if any of you help me with an infuriating technical problem.  I've just installed the '55 mod and I'm trying to get used to these beasts.  I thought I'd race a Grand Prix at the Monza 10k.  Anyway, I lost it under breaking at Parabolica and my plucky little Connaught slammed the inside guard rail and turned over . . .  Ho hum . . .

So I thought "I've got nothing else to do, may as well watch the race unfold".  So I did.  For a few laps.  Then, whilst watching from the TV1 Camera with my focus on Stirling Moss GPL Crashed to desktop on the second banking.  Frustrating.

Anyway, I restarted and tried again.  This time I tangled with Luigi Musso at Curva Grande and we both retired.  Again I thought "Let's see what happens", so I watched the race again, this time with TV1 focused on Farina.  Again, half way round the 2nd banking (pretty much exactly where the camera pans down to look directly on top of the cars), Crash to Desktop.

I tested it again, and a third time it happened.

I've not run GPL on this laptop for a long time, but last time it was able to cope ok with a full field (Spa '67 stuttered and flickered but I installed the low res pack and it's been fine since).

Anyone got any ideas what could be causing this?  Or has anyone experienced similar?

Any help would be very much appreciated.  It seems I'm having a crash to desktop when watching the field at exactly the same point.
