Hello!

I've returned to GPL after a long time, and I'd like to know

Is there a way to change your car number from race to race? I remember there was a tool that could do that.

I'm not aware of a utility than can change the player car number that is shown in game from race to race.  AFAIK, it can't be done.

You can change the player car skin which may have a different number on it as long as it's named the same as the original skin.

You know, in the player folder, under your name, there's a file called player.ini

Which has a line that reads:

[ Personal Information ]
carNumber = 4							; preferred car number

And the number you prefer, you set it there. (in my case i prefer 4)

AFAIK, that number has no effect on GPL.  You can use any number and it won't change the player number in the sim or the car skin.

I wasn't aware of that old utility program, but apparently it works by changing the player car number in the physics.  The physics is what controls the car number so if you change it and don't create new player car .3DO and skin .mip files to match, you will see the default car skin.

[ Personal Information ]
carNumber = 4

This is a notification to GPL as to what car number the Player had in the last startup of the program.  It is only a "tag".

The Number Change utility works perfectly.  You just need to make the corresponding Player Car 3do/mip file(s).  :)

EDIT:  Lee beat me to the punch.

Good to see that Stefan's website is still active even though he's been gone from GPL for years.  :)
