Player.ini File Only Capture Laptimes Of The 11 Gpl Original Onesplayer.ini
Posted Apr 20 2018 - 06:29 AM
Yesterday I found out that my player.ini file is not capturing any laptimes from other tracks beyond the 11 GPL original ones. Shouldn't do it? What can be wrong?
Note: one thing I did with the file after reinstalling GPL a few months ago was a copy/paste of my old laptimes from GPL Rank into the player.ini file (this procedure), as I lost my old GPL installation. Could this action be related?

That's important to remember for anybody interested in saving their lap times. I wiped my lap times a few times by running gpl.exe. It took me a little while to realize what I was doing. Thanks for reminding everybody, Pavel.

In the installation notes it's referred to update the GEM version. I think that I already have the "2.5.32." version referred (see first screenshot).
About the question of running gpl.exe instead of gplc67.exe, I think it's not the case. I don't know how to check that, but looking at my gpl folder I see that the gplc67.exe was last modified today (second screenshot) and gpl.exe don't.
So, I assume that I only need to do this:
"1/ Run the 67 Patch installer.
Check the install path. The default install path is C:\Sierra\GPL.
2/Remove the gplc67.exe from your gpl folder.
3/Start Gem+ and hit the gpl button or exit Gem+ to create a new patched gplc67.exe"

So, do you think that all I have to do to install the patch 1.3 is what I refered in the last post?

Until now, I just noticed two minor problems:
1) The calculation of the fuel consumption in the setup of the car it's different, and less accurate, it seems. My last setup was for 5 laps at Reims (which was enough for 5,5 laps, and therefore correct) and now the sutup shows the same amount of fuel and indicates that it's for 4 laps. Whith bigger ammounts of fuel, bigger error.
2) I lost my previous Michael Turner painting that I had in the GPL main menu image, downloaded from the f1legends website, and pasting it in the layout folder as before doesn't restore it as it should.
Thank you Pavel and Michkov for your help in this issue.

It gets worse with some of the mods. I use English units. Say, I cross the starting line when the fuel reading changes from 4.5 to 4.4 gallons. I then watch where it reduces by 0.1 gallons on the next lap at the same place on the track and continue checking each lap afterwards. The 67's setup menu is usually close but the setup menu in 69x will have you loading noticeably more fuel than you need.

I already managed to solve the other problem too, of the main menu image. It was a question of changing the name of the image file from "mainback.pbf" to "mainmc67.pbf". Don't ask me why...

It uses different names for all the files.
