I was wondering if there are also practice oppertunities without commiting to a league/race?

I've never driven online before and I would not want to be responsible for ruining someone else's race because of my lack of experience. Since I use a gamepad I'm also not sure if I'm able to keep up with the rest, let alone for 45 minutes. But I would defenitely want to give it a try if I can.

Will race 1 and 4 of the Mod Masters be run at the same time or is this a typo?

Cant speak for GPLRacers, but my usual response to this worry is that if you can drive predictably you should be fine. There are some points of racing you'll only pick up online, GPLs strange wide collision detection comes to mind. Anyway if you are looking for practice running I suggest you'll take a look at GPL Weekly where most of the online racing schedule is being collected these days. Or just hop on IGOR find a server with some folks on and do some one on one running.

Ok, I've signed up to the GPL Racer forum. (Though I did not see a query, so I just entered 'query' and it that seems to work?)

Driving predictable shouldn't be an issue and I'll just have to get used to the collision detection. But I will read all the rules first so I know what's expected of the participants.
As GPL is about the only game I'm still interested in it would be awesome to take it a step further and race against some real opponents this year.

Just occurred to me that they'll run a funrace with the Thundercars at Donnybrook tomorrow. Not the easiest cars to get ones first online race in but it's a no stake race with free Shift-Rs.

A typo. Is now fixed.
Thx for pointing me to it.

Exactly what Michkov wrote.
If you can drive predictably and fair and manage to keep the car on the track (most of the time ;) ) you should be fine.
The more you race online the more confident you will get.
We all have started sometime in the past. So we all know how it feels like.

For me racing against humans is the real thing.

Thanks!

I would like to join the TC race of tomorrow, atm I'm figuring out how IGOR works and which settings I should use. Is the race driven with the default 36 fps or one of the 60fps patches?

Igor is pretty straightforward, just launch it via GEM and all the settings should fit. On the first start it will ask you for your preferred chat name and alternative used when your preferred name is already in use but that's it. IGORs chat is an IRC channel so if you are familiar with that should be no problem there. Click on Add channel enter the name in the first input box (ie #GPLRACER) and you get access to the chatroom for the league in question. Details are usually found on the various league sites.

To join a server just select one that has a green circle next to its name. In the pop up window you can choose your player if you got multiple ones, pick the car and enter the password to the server if necessary. You click join race and the software puts you right in the garage ready to drive.

Should the connection window time out, retry once if it's still not working exit and rejoin. 99% of the time it's an internet hickup.
Should the connection window tell you you are not qualified to join the server, some of the patches you run are incompatible with the serves. Click cancel, once IGOR window is back click the GEM button top right and select the proper patches in GEM, finally launch IGOR again via GEM. Patch choices should be mentioned in the various threads and or descriptions, or ask in the chat room if it's shortly before the race. People usually show up 20-10 minutes prior.

That's about all for non hosters to know about IGOR. As for TC funrace I think we ran 36fps last week should be the same for this one. It's a 1 min change so even if you got the wrong setting its a minor inconvenience.

Everything seems to work, I just joined the server (36 fps) and did a couple of practice laps. :)

I can imagine that, because they are so wide. I've driven them a lot though so I feel fairly confident with them. I'm more curious about if I'm able to drive consistent for about 45 minutes with a gamepad, but there's only one way to find out.

Ah, I was just enjoying my first online race in GPL and then my game froze during the 6th lap of the race (softlock). :( That never happend to me before with GPL. Is this something that just can happen with online races or could there be anything wrong with my system or setup? There also was a bit of lag with some opponents, but nothing unplayable, didn't cause any real problems.

For as long as it lasted I really liked it, I couldn't really keep up with the fastest guys (as I expected) but my pace was good enough keep up with the rest of the field.

Yes, freezes are not an uncommon theme online. But most of the time, a lot of it depends on what track and patches are used.

There is a blacklist which tells which tracks are not suitable for online racing, sheerly because of the high risk of casualties. (CTD, freezes, warping, etc.)
60fps is also a bit more unreliable at non-Papy tracks.

Ok, that's good to know. I had already closed every program on my pc to avoid inteference so it had to be GPL.

As for league races, I've signed up to the GPL Racer forum but I'm not allowed to post. On the 'Anmeldung 65 MOD Rennen' page there's only a option to submit your best lap, is that how qualification/joining goes for league races? It's not really clear to me how this all works.

By the way, what a fantastic 1.23 laptime during the practice Yannick!

It's for separating the field into two grids/servers if the need arises. So you can be matched with drivers at your skill level. IIRC you can still change the times after you entered.

Nice that you enjoyed the TC fun race @ Donnybrooke International Speedway 1971 :)
http://srmz.net/inde...showtopic=12172

I had a freeze at Qualifying, but the race was fine.
I rarely have a freeze, but it can happen every now and then.
Reasons can be the track itself, or the mod - patch - track combination.

How did you register to the GPLRACER forum? Please send me PM here at SRMZ with the name you used to register to GPLRACER (Erik... I guess?  ;) ), or post it here and I will contact our admin Kauli to unlock you to the forum.

Did you read the registration help here (I just reworked it to make it more clear. :) )?
http://forum.gplrace...opic.php?id=69

1) If you want to join our league please register here to our forum:
http://forum.gplracer.eu/signup.php

You have to use the same name that you use as driver name in the GPL game for your registration to the GPLRACER forum!


2) When you have registerd to the GPLRACER forum
you can sign up for our league races
by posting your personal best time (PB).
To submit your PB you have to do a 2nd registration to our PB-system.

Note: The PB-system registration is an additional registration to your GPLRACER forum registration!
The PB-system is an individually programmed software of one of our admins and is seperated of the forum software,
therefore a seperate registration is needed to submit your personal best time for a cup race.



You have to use the same name that you use as driver name in the GPL game to register to the GPLRACER PB-system!
