Pov In 69-Extra Mod

12 Jul 2019

Posted by Nicky Ickx in GPL-"Help! I'm having trouble with..."
Edit: I found a solution :up:
see note down below...

On my Race PC  POV back & forward doesnt work for me in  69-Extra mod ( uses gplx69.exe right ? )

Strange thing ; on my working PC  POV back & forward works in  69 Extra mod .

Regardless  starting via exe directly or via GEM+ . Even using no letterbox or not ...

The move is slow and stuttering , but it works.

I can deal with up & down dont work at all.

general question : whats the reason 69extra mod do handle POV different to old 69mod ?

Is there a patch  or newer version of gplshiftt , or are the modders working on that prob ?

BTW : Both PCs run WIN10 Home on same update level.

Any idears ?

note: Solotion to me :

-troublemaker was the version of gplshift-patch  did run on my Race PC ,which was v0771 Beta
-newest version v0790 , as well both older avaiable versiions v0760 Beta ,v0781 Beta did not work either ( http://www.gplshift....shift/index.htm )
-But version v0732 Alpha did the trick !  Strangley this version comes under the exe file called simply  `GPLpatch `.  I found in my GPL main folder of an old installation , together with GPLshift ini & GPLshift configuration file , belongs to this version.

Installation procedure execution:
1. run GPLshift Patch as admin and let it unpatch GPL. ( should be in the main GPL folder )
2. delete GPLshift patch , GPLshift.ini ,and GPLshiftt configuration file. ( Best to make a copy of those before , to be on save side  ).
3. copy GPLpatch together with its GPLshift ini & GPLshift configuration file to the main folder of GPL.
4.run GPLpatch
5.configure GPLshift file to ya preferences and save it.
6. delete gplx69.exe  ( not sure if really needful , but guess GEM needs that to rebuild the changed exe right ).
7. run GEM  , jump into ya 69x car  and change the point of view to ya liking.

Contrary to the instruction inside GPLshift , the movements are done only via arrow keys without shift buttom at all !!!

Where to find that old gplpatch and its files ?

good question ....well I can collect mine in a 7zip and maybe Cookie could manage to make them downloadable here at SRMZ. I will ask him

37¾ Mile Isle Of Man Mountain Course - New Update & Long Draw Distance Version

11 Jul 2019

As the heading suggests, two new downloads on my website release page.

Cumulative Update

First a new update zip /patch that includes all minor changes /corrections made since release of Version 1.1 Full and LITE installations. Includes additional files made yesterday. These are only improvements to some graphics, there are no changes to the track file, surface or driving conditions.

Long Draw Distance AAIOM.3DO

Second is a new AAIOM.3DO for those who want the long rear draw distances from the original release files restored with the 1.1 track version. I have made such a track 3do with further modifications / enhancements, which should satisfy those who want to see all far details in mirrors or look at rear facing views in replays, or who wish to dabble with video making.

Please understand that this Long Draw Distance version is only suitable for the most powerful systems and may still cause frame rate issues and CTD's [ crashes ] with such systems, especially if racing other cars and / or when using the more complex car sets.


The normal FULL Version 1.1 AAIOM.3do is also included in the Zip, for those who try this download and want to revert to the normal FULL Version 1.1.

Instructions for installation of both files included in the zips. ...............Please read these carefully....FIRST! ............... or you will "muck it up!"   :hithead:

Please go here

The Formula One Drivers (Aka The Quick And The Dead)

This is one I had not seen yet. I thought many of you would like it. It appears to focus on the 1973 F1 season. There is a lot of interesting footage. I don’t care much for the gruesome footage but it was the nature of the beast.


I loved this this quote,

“The Europeans have always been crazy about auto racing. The South Americans even crazier. The Americans are just crazy.”

That reminded me of GPL. I don’t have the passion many Europeans and South Americans do but that doesn’t mean I’m not crazy too. :)
