Pretty sure that's it.
You could have found it in Tech Section at gpllinks.org btw.


Just checked, so thought I'd mention it.

Yeh, that`s where I got it. :D

I checked there just after I`d posted the above.

I should really learn to check first then post. :P

Thanks John.

Oh :swear: :wall: so I had a 50% chance of getting it right and... I got it wrong. :wall: :lol:

I asked as I`ve never really had the time to do a championship so was`nt sure. Anyway, once again, thanks Greg. :)

One other question when I`m here (asking noob questions) why is there a 05Season.ini and a 55Season.ini but also a G55.ini for the 55 mod?

I believe that a standard for an extended season (non-championship tracks, etc) has the year (or car type- ie CA71seas) as the prefix for the season.ini file

For those who use GEM+ to sort and order their tracks, a standard usage began with the zero and year as the prefix ie 05season

I never got into that discussion, so I may be way off.  ;)

Personally, I use for example, just g55.ini and 55season.ini

Yeh, I use those two also Greg. Not that I`ve done any championships as I `ve said but in general that`s what I use. I was just curious about it as the other mods I have installed don`t have a "0X.ini"

Anyway, cheers for the explanation. :)

Not in front of my computer at the moment to check , but I thought the difference between 55season and 05season was to include the races cancelled following the Le Mans tragedy and/or non-championship 1955 races and/or other 1950's period  races.

Easy to switch between these two using GEM+ (not so easy to switch the championship G55.in file)

Ahh ok, thanks for the info here webfoot.

One thing... what do you mean by "(not so easy to switch the championship G55.ini file)"

What I meant was....

In GEM+ you can switch between 55season and 05season (or any other season file, provided the filename is 8 characters long). This is used to select the track for practice or single races.

The G55 file is used for the tracks when you do a world championship. IIRC there is no drop down in GEM+ to easily switch this file. You need to manually edit/switch it in Windows  (or edit the .cst file)

I know we can have custom player helmets and faces for the 67`s. Is it possible to have custom player gloves? Be cool to have your own gloves. :)

Also, is it possible to have custom helmets etc for the mods?

I think the suits and gloves are chassis dependent, so every other BRM driver would have the same gloves as you if you make your own set.

I've used custom helmets in the historic 67s and the 66 mod without any trouble.

Ahh ok. That`s a pity. It would have been quite nice to have a custom set of player gloves. Thanks for the reply Michkov. :)

Good to know the custom helmets can be used in the mods marco. I have a custom helmet (well, two actually) for the 67`s kindly painted for me by db312 (Denis) as for some reason I just can`t get to grips with painting stuff in GPL. I`ve painted quite a few skins for other, more modern sims that use layers etc but because GPL doesn`t use them I find it difficult to get any painting to work properly.

I appreciate the reply. :)

Guys...

Just wondering how I un-install Pribluda? I don`t have any real problem with it but I was thinking of giving DDM a try to see which I prefer.
