AWESOME !!!  Is that 'top' screen for playback of race videos or to watch a live broadcast race while you drive?  ;)

Very nice.

You don't have the black bars on top and bottom anymore in both views.

Hi guys, I am happy with the patch that allows me to see the screen but on replays, even with v4 enabled, I still get the bars. This is firing up GPL via Gem+ with gplc67.exe or just gpl.exe. How can I fix this?

It's possible that when you enabled "77dv3 No Letterbox", GEM didn't rebuild the executable. This can happen sometimes, for unaccountable reasons. Try this: Start GEM. Make sure "77dv4" is disabled, make sure that "77dv3" is enabled, then exit out of GEM with the red flag button. Go to your GPL directory and delete GPLC67.EXE. Then restart GEM, make sure the patch options are still correct, and start GPL. This should ensure that GEM rebuilds the executable correctly. Hopefully you should now see replays without the black bar at the top of the screen. You will still get one at the bottom, showing the replay control buttons, that's normal.

Just to be clear, 77dv3 enables full-screen display for both normal driving and replays. 77dv4 enables full-screen for normal driving, but keeps the black bar at the top of the screen for replays, as this shows extra information which some people (like myself) prefer to see.

I hope this helps!

Thank you for the response! My game now crashes with the v3 option selected, so weird.

Yesterday I have used the patch at first for a league race. The bigger sight is great!

I had test it a year before. Because I see no chat messages (more specifically: I see the chat for only 0,2 seconds) I had forget it until last week.
Is it a special problem, only a problem of me?
My graficcard is nVidea GeForde 9500GS and I use oglv2.

Or untick the Letter Box patch. That`s how I do now.
I had it activated in the past for online racing, but there is always a light flickering when someone is entering or exiting the track or typing in chat, that can be distracting.
You might also be interested in what an admin / or another driver is typing when you are in car racing.
