@ Pete: to me Historical has way too much grip...

@ John: thanks, I drive with triple screens at 106degrees FOV and 4320x900 res and adjusted driving position without letterbox....for convenience and Youtube  captured in single screen mode 1920x1080 at 80degrees FOV (and driving position optimized for triple screen mode). I have driver arms off for more immersion, however you can argue both ways...

@ Greg: thanks, and thanks for all your work supporting the GPL community :)

Yes, more grip for V2, but does Papy physics have enough grip to be more realistic?

I don't know.


It's all very low budget, currently need another 21" monitor to replace both sidemonitors. Or 2 24" monitors. Only then I will make an alu frame to use Remco Hitman's old cockpit. It's hard to make a pic that sees it from my eyeview. The bezels of my main 24" are quite thin happily :)

I've setup the 19" side monitors so the wheels and the rest isn't too distorted...at about 30 degrees even when GPL doesn't support angling...it's still way more immersive than single screen :P So, it's still far from perfect ATM. Also still using MSFF wheel and pedals...

It's good to see that you have a seasoned navigator .... with what looks like excellent night vision.  ;)

That would be nice. All I have is one small monitor.

That's a stunning lap Robert, very impressed. I did have to laugh at the low tech solution to getting the monitors on the same level, but an impressive rig just the same. I have to make do with an office chair with wheels, if I stamp on the brakes too hard I'm in danger of flying backwards across the room. ( A poor excuse for my slow times but it's the only one I've got)

I also make do with a single "small" monitor (23"), but it's all relative - I first played GPL on a 14" CRT monitor running 640x480.

She spoilt an online race or two though, like my other cat jumping on my lap or legdancing :rolleyes:

lol Sid, sometimes I push the pedals (not fixed) away but funnily enough it's mostly the throttle side having a heavy right foot...have destroyed a few MSFF pedal springs (again always throttle), but have still 2 working MSFF sets, and 2 broken ones for parts :lol:

Thanks, I'm kind off lazy and low tech (2x 19" monitor for €25 as well) :P When I drive, mostly at evenings, I have lights out and then the immersion is quite good sitting close to the monitors, about 35-40cm/15inches. But need to get a secondhand 21" (have one) then the height proportions will be quite OK with my main 24" (16:10/16:9/16:10). As said, still need to fabricate an aluminum frame to mount the monitors on (the cockpit) and then get used to the cockpit and custom Hitman pedals (those will be way more accurate than my modest MSFF pedals).



Again, having a lot of fun hotlapping at Spa67, it's good to extensively drive here and see how much I did improve over the last 2 years. Getting a lot of good feedback of ppl not knowing GPL, they are surprised how good the track looks! GPL came a long way. Many thanks to all trackmakers and modders. But this track stands out to me, it's incredible! :)

Thanks Robert ,


Let's guess the two things we share regarding our sim racing installations ! :D

the seat .. and ??

Sometimes I wonder why I don't do any driving progress..... :rolleyes:

Cats share our love for racing seats; Pic just taken now, five minuts after I have seen yours .... At the time of writing, you have the best dreams of my dear cat, Fantomas

Michel

One day, I wld like to have the same wide angle field of view than yours ( What the driver could certainly see in the real racing conditions)  , but only on one TV OLED screen ; But If I want a RL size front track for the car, I think the OLED UHD TV on the Market aren't large enough .

love the co-pilots :D I have 2 ;)

I also use an office chair these days but I sit it on some polystyrene sheets to stop it moving too much & my pedals are braced with a box full of bricks against the wall :D

a cockpit/triple screens is a dream for another day... hopefully

Pardon me if this question seems amateurish.. I've been with GPL since the beginning..  but this thread has me intrigued ... I have separate installs for each and every mod for reasons of my own. Regarding the 4GB patch, do I have to apply that patch to each subsequent mod executable to take advantage of it's benefits? Meaning the GPLC executable for that mod.  I am running a 64 bit system with 12 GB of ram ....
