Easter Eggs In Gpl Tracks

17 Nov 2017

Here's my video on secrets and easter eggs in Grand Prix Legends. Please let it know if there are some secrets that I missed, I would like to make another video.


There are also some images I found while browsing trough the DAT files that I couldn't find on the tracks themselves:
1. Isle of Man - Hidden message about the 'spanish inquisition' or something like that.
2. Sodegaura Forest Raceway - Cavemen (One says "what are you looking for?")
3. Clermont-Ferrand - Red Cross widgy wodgy, it doesn't show up in my game.
4. Nürburging - Smeagol / Gollum and some images from a rockband (?).
5. Laguna Seca 1967 - Emma Peel

All Suggestions For This Problem - Welcome

12 Nov 2017

tho i was able to install and drive the mods SportsCars (SC) and 69extra (69x) earlier, i just tried it today and i CTD instead.

in GEM i select driver, the screen changes to Carset=1967 Sportscars (GPLGT)
the track shows Sebring 67 (tho i've tried other tracks and get same result)
car selection is Ferrari 330/p4 (same comment as track result)
season = GTseason

all is as it should be, so i click on GPL and the screen/game loads.

on the left, where you can check team composition and 'add' a new (you) driver.. those work.
but if from that screen i press the green button (lower right) - to where you'd then normally see the tracks... i get CTD

this has worked before, i have some setups (nothing major, just tweaks) and a player for the SC's.
what has changed, was the last time i launched i was using windows XP, and i've now changed to win10

i even attempted reinstalling the two mods, without success of getting them to run.

Sys is Win10 and nVidea GT650 card
rasterizer is set to OpenGL v2

i see the main GPL screen, but when i try to load a track (pressing GREEN button)  bang.. CTD.
and the season ini is correct, the tracks are all installed, but i even tried other tracks, and an alternate season ini... same result.
i've deleted the mod specific 'exe' files for GPLsc.exe and GPLx69.exe, closed GEM and restarted to create new files, same result.

all other mods work fine!  65...67 F2, CanAm66 and 71, and the original 69mod... and the most recent 55 mod
i've tried loading other season ini files in GEM with the 69x mod... nope same result.
deleted player, tried different player, added new player...same result

in a nutshell, the 69s and SC mods won't "See" tracks - on pressing the GREEN button to advance to the track selection screen... CTD
if you've got any suggestions, or points i'm not covering, i'd be more than happy to give 'em a go :)
i'm about out of ideas, short of reinstalling GPL.. but why if all the other mods work?

Ferrari 712M Small Cockpit Update

17 Nov 2017

Posted by leon_90 in GPL CanAm 71 Mod
Hi lads,

I have made a small update for the 712M cockpit. It's just the telltale removed, which was never there in real life, and the rev needle made slightly longer to match real size ;) Plus driving view has been lowered just a little bit to provide a more realistic setup.
(you ain't driving a truck are you? :D)

Attached File  Ferrari 712M cockpit_update v1.0.7z   6.64K   47 downloads

There were plans to add the correct needle texture for the tach as I did for the '67 312, but unfortunately the new needle moves around the wrong center of rotation. Which is something that can only be corrected by someone who knows how to move around these things. Since the mirror needs to be fixed too, since it has the wrong shape (textures are ready for that too), if someone who has the knowledge of how to deeply modify 3dos would like to help please say it ;) As I said, textures and implementation of the new needle are all ready to go.

I have just discovered the Cerne's Wood track. The basic track comes as a Winter track but there is a Spring version available. Will some one please advise me on how to install the Spring version. Total computer dummy here!
