Can't Access New Aaiom Circuit In My Track List

Today, 12:58 AM

Like everyone else, I downloaded the AAIOM circuit and Options package last week, ran the installer as instructed, and copied the Options folder into the AAIOM folder under Tracks. But when I went to find it in the game, it did not show up in the list of tracks available for Training or Single Race.

Last year, the PC I'd been using for several years gave up the ghost, but the hard drive I'd been using was still fundtioning. A friend built a new gaming computer for me from components I had and he contributed, and he installed both a new hard drive (C:) and the old one (E:) linked so that I could move files from one to the other. The operating system he installed is Windows 10.

I was delighted to discover that when I copied my old Sierra folder from the old hard drive to the new, faster one, I could run the various application (65, 66, 67, 69) files and play the game with my old settings still in place. Unfortunately, when I tried copying the GPLSecrets folder to the C drive and tried to run the GEMP2 application file so that I could assign the AAIOM track for use with the various mods, I got an error message about a missing file and assume that GEM has no idea how to find the Sierra/GPL folders/files that I copied from E to C.

Is there any way to manually make text changes to a file or files under GPL so that my mods "see" the AAIOM circuit. If not, what do I need to do? Can I re-install GEM+ and "point" it to the current location of my GPL game files, or will I have to start from scratch with a completely fresh installation of game, mods, and tracks?

Thanks in advice for the solution/advice, no matter how painful.

Isle Of Man Pace Notes In German

13 Jun 2019

Hello

well, the title says it all.
I have created Pace Notes Sounds in GERMAN for the full Isle of Man track by Jim Pearson
to use with the program IOM Track Options Manager.

More details in the readme.

I use the Pace Notes Sounds in combination with Direction Arrows and Corner Names. :)

Download:
http://jrpearson.hom...MMCRelease.html

Have fun.

readme - Pace Notes Sounds in GERMAN
for the Grand Prix Legends (GPL) track
AAIOM (37¾ mile Isle of Man Mountain Course by Jim Pearson)
===========================================================

About
-----
These are alternative Pace Notes Sounds in GERMAN language for the full Isle of Man track for GPL by Jim Pearson.
To use them you need the program IOM Track Options Manager.

You can download the AAIOM track and the IOM Track Options Manager (by Lee Bowden) of Jim`s homepage:
http://jrpearson.homestead.com/

These audio Pace Notes are generated on the fly in real time as you reach positional triggers on the course
and include corner direction; numerical references 1 - 5 representing slowest to fastest corners, together with
other verbal clues to what lies immediately ahead.
These Pace Notes make it easier to learn the very long Isle of Man track.
With this system that is also used in Rally sports you can drive a track quite fast without knowing it.
Tip: Use the Pace Notes in combination with the Corner Speed & Direction Arrows option of the IOM Track Options Manager.


Installation
------------
Unpack the 7zip. Inside the "Pace Notes Sounds_GER" folder you find a "AAIOM" folder.
Copy the "AAIOM" folder into your GPL "tracks" folder and let your system overwrite all files when you get asked.
The path to the GPL "tracks" folder is ...\SIERRA\gpl\tracks\

Now you have replaced the 139 original ENGLISH pace notes with GERMAN pace notes. :)
In case you want to go back to the original ENGLISH pace notes there is a folder named "Pace Notes Sounds_ORIGINAL"
inside the "Options" folder that has all 139 original MP3 sound files in ENGLISH.
Just copy them all in the "Pace Notes Sounds" folder and let your system overwrite all files when you get asked and you are back to ENGLISH.

I have also replaced the five sounds of the "Track Position Sounds" folder with GERMAN sounds.
These sounds are played as examples within the IOM Track Options Manager (not in game)
when you choose the Pace Notes tab of the program and hoover with your mouse over the track section screenhots.
I have also included the original ENGLISH sounds in the "Track Position Sounds_ORIGINAL" folder in case you prefer the ENGLISH sounds.


How to create Pace Note Sounds in different languages
-----------------------------------------------------
To create the GERMAN Pace Note Sounds I used the great freeware Balabolka.
Balabolka is a free Text-To-Speech (TTS) program. All computer voices installed on your system are available to Balabolka.
So if you have for example Italian computer voices installed on your system, Balabolka will read and safe your texts in Italian.
The on-screen text can be saved as a WAV, MP3, MP4, OGG or WMA file.

The IOM Track Options Manager can only read MP3 files!

Download Balabolka:
http://www.balabolka...e/balabolka.htm

Important:
When you save a MP3 file with Balabolka the file name has to be identical to the original sound name
as the IOM Track Options Manager can only read the original file names.
The sound itself can be in any language, but the file name has to be the original ENGLISH one.
For example the sound name is "FullThrottleOverJumpKeepRight" but the GERMAN sound is "Vollgas über Sprung rechts halten".



Thank you
---------
Jim Pearson
Lee Bowden
