Gpl Tested 7680 X 1440 / 144 Hz / Ips Triple Screen : A New Game !

Today, 05:01 PM

.. or the end of the 36 fps / 60 fps dispute

  the new specs used :

Motherboard : Asus  Prime H310 M
CPU : i5 9600 K 3.7 Ghz / 4.6 Ghz
GFX : Zotac GTX 1660 Ti 6GB DDR 6 Amp
RAM : 16 Gb DDR 4 3000 Mhz
500 GB SSD  M2 NvMe
Power supply : Corsair 750 W
OS : Win 10 64 bits

first tests with those display settings :

NVidia G Sync monitor native enabled
resolution : 144 Hz
NVidia surround enabled .GEM tweaked to display on center monitor is easy

1 - GPL menu display the 7480 X 1440 resolution and as soon you enter the game, the three monitors run flawlessly without any extra tweak.  

2 - 36 fps and 60 fps are easily displayed whatever carsets/ Tracks /High reso textured cars used at the Back Of the Grid / Full grid

3 - Overall impression is 36 fps is now smooth as silk : 7480 /144 HZ/ G Sync enabled is a winning formula; really entering a new 36 fps experience ! There is no more interest to display the game at 60 fps.

Didn't expected so much, that 's like discovering GPL again and again. Eyes never get tired, the game is a new experience, everything smooth, clean, sharp .IPS does is job about color and contrast renderings.

  G Sync is efficient and do the job. Honestly, 60 Fps various patches with this configuration are  things of the past....

I can honestly say this is the end of the 36 Fps versus 60 fps dispute.

If you have enough room at home, go for it !! some pics attached of my new config.

Cockpit view aside, all GPL default or edited cameras are in a serious need to be edited again and replaced with more suitable ones.Pics attached of the pits camera view at Spa 67.

Will post later various cameras view.

Thanks to One2fee for his advices about running GPL on triple screen and his FOV calculations. He warned me and on the topics here that GPL isn't triple screens compatible. He means you will have the objects elongation on the side screens.  Pics attached of what you see on a starting grid, with cars on each side.

Thanks to Philippe ( KARTM) for your hardware selection that saved  the painful job of selecting one from scratch

Returning After 17 Years.... Hopelessly Off The Pace

15 Feb 2020

Wondering if I get some advice, tips.  I used to play GPL 98-2003 and did get negative GPLRank times on several tracks back then.  

I've now returned after 17 years (using the easy installation guide to get nicely updated version) and started with BRM and Brabham in the 65 mod as though would be easier but I'm driving round and feel like I'm going at a good pace until I see my times and realise I'm several seconds off the GPL rank benchmark times for 1965 tracks.  Thing is I have no idea where on the track I'm losing time, feels like I'm driving at my limit.  I've downloaded some 1965 setups and played around with those (ie make sure I have reasonable gearing etc) but still driving more like James May than the Stig.

So the questions I have are:-

1) Is being fast in the 65 cars different in terms of driving style etc than 67?
2) Is 65 the best place to start, if not what is the best mod to get back into it?
3) Does anyone have some replays of a good time in a 1965 chassis round tracks like Watkins Glen, Monza or Silverstone?  I've tried watching youtube videos like GPLaps but its really hard to get anything other than braking points from those as most 65 vids don't have the times displayed.  Be good to get a good replay to put through replay analyser to see where I'm losing time.

Zandvort- The Return

15 Feb 2020

Posted by twinpotter in Motorsport Chat
What do you all think of the new Zandvoort circuit and It's return to the F1 calendar.






Will it be a fantastic success or a disappointing return.

Does it signify and represent the fall and recent disinterest of F1. With team F1 trying to not only claw back old fans but breed new ones.

There seems to be interest and a wondering, whether the track will hold up and whether it will work as a F1 race. But along with that hope, theres a lot of people who are doubtful of its calibre. Especially whether overtaking and competativeness will be possible.

Do we really need a Dutch GP, ot is it just a gift to Max, to help house all his fever pitched band of Orange fans.

Wifi, Linux On-Line, Willow Server, Personal Update :)

Today, 10:38 AM

Posted by John Woods in GPL-"Help! I'm having trouble with..."
Some questions:

1. Grand Prix Legends on-line with wifi?

Trying to maintain no-wifi home and using direct cable for internet. But market for internet is going to wifi and for weeks have been having issues with direct cable reliability from only source.

2. What about wifi for hosting races or the Willow practice server?

3. Racing on-line with wifi on a Linux PC?
If not a good idea, I need to know asap probably.  Service tech is local Linux expert and has agreed to help with hopefully seamless transition.

3b. Hosting race server on Linux PC?
(Thinking leave it Win10?).

4. Just letting you all know the Willow server went down when it stopped running GPL and no tweak or re-install would fix it so the effort was abandoned in favor of a new (used) post-gamer laptop,  picked up two days ago for that purpose at a pawn shop, (in lieu of more tech fees).
So, (in GPL time), the Willow server will return sometime soon maybe probably.

5. And, Outlaw Rabbit semi-simracer will be back, dang it.
(Just giving everyone a head start).
