Well, if it's not installed in Program Files, UAC and DEP are disabled, patches and tweaks applied, N2k3 runs and GTP doesn't ...the only other thing I can think of is a corrupt file in your GTP install.

What I find curious is that you say it crashes soon after you get to the track.  Before I disabled DEP on my system (Vista) that's exactly when GTP crashed on me.  I could start the sim, go through all the menus, look at opponent cars ,adjust rosters, adjust options, select a track, even go to the garage, with no problems;  once I was in the cockpit, the sim would CTD within ten seconds or so.

We always overlook the obvious.  Did 3D sound ever work on any system?  I recall when I first got N2k3 being told not to enable it.

Just to tease your imagination guys. Long time ago I have solved this ongoing NR2003 3D-sound issue.
But eventhough I was ready to help other people who would like to get maximum 3D surround out of this sim nobody reacted.
So now Im probably the only one who is able to run NR2003/GTP with 3D sound ON + HW acceleration ;-)

Hi Bruno,

I had a quick read at the linked thread.
Pretty interesting!

Might be, that the interest on that subject might rise again with more people using Windows 7 and modern systems, on the other hand it might decrease with the age of NR2003. :(

If you ever find the time to do a guide on how to active 3D sound for NR2003/GTP I would be interested. But only if you have too much spare time. :)

I don't have W7, but that sounds like a graphics or memory issue.  Have you made the ini file tweaks?

Which ini file tweaks?  :confused:
Edit: Do you mean the GTP track.ini tweaks? No, I haven`t.

NR2003 patched to 1.1 runs fine. Only GTP mod crashes, so I doubt it might be graphics or memory related.


Hi Stefan,

Did you try NRTweak? I run it with NR2003 and then copy the modified files to the GTP main folder, and it worked always fine here, so GTP never crashes. The files involved are:
core.ini
app.ini
rend_dxg.ini

I use the same name for my player at both games and never had a problem with this procedure.

NRTweak makes GTP crash here on Win 7.
I tried to leave Cache Size and MaxBlockSize untouched/ unchecked, but GTP still crashes.
So I went back to my backed up settings. :)

Trying not to play smartass here I would rather settle for a more transparent manual tweaking of the graphic settings.
Where you have full control over what is done and where some of the settings probably can go even higher than with the old NRTweaker.
If you want more control then check this out:

Hi BrunoB,

I just had a quick look at your guide. Looks interesting.
I will give it a go soon.

Cheers,
Stefan
