I also spent several days trying to get the cars to display spray behind the tires.  I succeeded in getting one or sometimes two cars to do this and it is a cool effect, but I couldn't get all cars to do so.  :wshI:

Lee, would it be possible to add that effect, even if only one or two cars? That would be very, very spectacular !!
Thanks in advance. :thumbup:

I could, but it really isn't ready for prime time yet.  It's on the back burner now, but I will try again to make it work for all cars some day.

I am a huge fan of your patches Lee :D and have used your weather patch for a long time now.  After qualifying in the dry for the Nurbugring 1000km, I turn on the weather patch for the actual race.  Spectacular!  Apart from the most apt ambience, it allows me to be somewhat competitive and to move up the field, ending in the top 3.  This leads me on to your V2 weather patch ...

I downloaded it, and gave it a run at the said race ... very, very slippery!  Fog effect seems to be more subtle over V1 but, at my first attempt,  grip seemed to be way down.  In fact, I couldn't get off the line due to excessive wheel spin and even the AI were getting sideways at the start of the race :thumbup: .  I subsequently crashed, exited, turned off the head movement patch and things seemed to be much easier upon my next attempt ... not sure if this is a random coincidence or if I am simply imagining it.

Are there significant changes in V2 over V1?

Thanks again for everything you do to keep GPL the best classic racing experience possible, Lee!

Ed

Edit: I forgot to activate the Tire Pressure Bug Fix Patch before trying V2, and now things are awesome again! :woot:

Ed, glad to hear its working OK for you.  To be sure, I just tested at the Ring with '67 Lotus and didn't have any problem with rear tire grip at the race start even though the wet grip was 13% lower than dry.

There is no difference between v1 and v2 as far as the player tire grips go.  The main difference between the two patches is that v1 always used a fixed fog density that was set at start while v2 varies it on the fly.

Our league (oAo) schedules a race in Mosport rain, we could use the Wather Patch with the original Monsport and that all participants are obliged to enter the server with the Patch, in other words: it could be detected that some participant by "Distraction" do not have the patch?
Thanks in advance.

I came up with the same question while I was beta testing.
No, that is not possible. You can`t force all clients to use the patch or detect if anyone is not using the patch.

.... about coding in Python and how it links to GPL ^^; )

Wait this is coded in Python? I was under the impression it was some obscure assembly language, if its Python I'd like to know more about this.

No, the patch was coded in assembly language.
