Hello,

After some time off GPL I have come back to it, or tried to. The problem is that when I click into the sim, the steering wheel does not turn. Also, reverse gear does not work.

The steering and pedals function perfectly both in USB Game Controllers and in GPL - OPTIONS, but not when it matters.

I seem to recall that if one deletes something, the system resets itself but I cannot recall what. Obviously not GPL.exe - I tried that and then had to restore it from the Recycle Bin.

Help, please...

[Edit] Evidently not Core.ini either. Had to restore that too...

Hello Peter,

1) Maybe this helps:

Calibration - Controller axis missing?
First - Delete the control.cfg file in your player folder C:\Sierra\gpl\players\(player name)\
Second - When you start GPL, another control.cfg will be created.
Third - In the Calibration window run the axes through their ranges.
Fourth - Only now can you assign the axes in the GPL game controllers window.



2) Or delete your player name and create a new one.
Attention! Make a backup before, as the player name also includes your setups!
You can copy back your setups later into C:\Sierra\gpl\players\(player name)\

To delete and create a player start GPL via Start -> Programs -> GPL -> Grand Prix Legends 1.3 and delte the palyer and then create a new player. Be careful in case you have more than one player (like different players for different mods) that you do not delete the wrong one. ;)


I hope that helps.

:wave:

Thanks. Actually, I have just cracked it. So obvious that I didn't spot it: SET CONTROLS.

Doh. Stoopid. "Senior moment". Apologies.
