Unable To Start Gpl: Clicking Green Button Does Nothing.
Posted Dec 26 2019 - 11:38 AM
I haven't done any OS updates and some codecs I installed in-between running GPL have been removed too - not that that should have thing to do with it.
Any help would be appreciated, thank you.
PS: When the click the green flag button on the main menu, the button momentarily changes shade as if the click has been registered but the session does not start.

The 4gb patch allows the game to use 4gb of ram, instead of physical 3.2gb, this helped me since i wasn't able to load the game when using the Spa67 track, which uses a lot of ram.

The first thing to try is to delete the various GPL.exes except the original GPL.exe and try to launch the 55mod again via GEM.
Next would be to reinstall the 55mod.
This sounds like a file is missing, but from what you told in the first post I cant see what would have gone missing. So a corrupted exe seems likely.

Thank you very much! Lee's post reminded of something I did but had completely forgotten about. While playing around with video capture, I wanted to try a different Ferrari sound and so I renamed the wav file I was using before and put in the new one which turned out to be garbage and so I deleted it. I thought I had undone the renaming of the older wav file so it hadn't occur to me to check. Turns out it was still called fer1.wav. The car I had selected on GEM ws of course the Ferrari.
I feel like an idiot but we live and learn. Thank you once again.

GPL is strict about missing files. You would have gotten the same problem by selecting any of the cars even though only the Ferrari was missing its sound file.
