I bet you installed 69 MOd; not 69 Xtra MOD (with many more cars to choose).
They  are 2 totally different MOD's and one don't need the other.

Hi ginetto,

No I don`t think so. I`ve had the original 69 mod installed for a long time. As I said in my reply to Greg, I got the 69 X`tra mod from here: http://srmz.net/inde...?showtopic=6918

It`s the same as the mod that`s here is`nt it? http://www.grandprix...art 4 EXTRA.htm

There`s a download on that mod page though so I`ll maybe try using that.

That's the right one tjc; you probably aren't using the right physics.
You mentioned that you have 69 mod from long time; is it possible that you did select  the old 69 MOD instead?
Physics of 69Xmod have the little window in the setup menu to choose the car from; if you don't see it, the physics are evidently different.
Having both MODs on the same installation might bring to errors. :think:

The physics are correct ginetto... 69-EXTRA is selected for the 69 X`tra mod in Gem.

I think it`s actually working now. I`ve checked things through this morning and found that some cars don`t have a choice of car graphics and others do. The Matra MS10, Eagle AAR101 and the Cooper T86b don`t have other car graphics options. The McLaren M7, Lotus 49b and the Ferrari 312 (as well as many other cars) do have several car graphics options.

I think that`s right anyway... is that how it is for you?

I must have selected cars last night when I first tried the mod that didn`t have any car graphics options and thought maybe it was`nt working correctly.

Thanks for the help guys. :)

I'm getting an error when trying to install it.
Tried running it via Administrator.
Not sure if I ever asked this before?

Found the error.

Just retried installer, runs fine on my win8, though it triggered windows compatibility setting. It seems the installer 1st self-extract to temp, then run another setup.exe to start installing (extracting files, which can be done with 7zip), which can be troublesome.

I'd strongly suggest repack this mod into a 7zip file, either self-extractable or just plain 7z archive. Not only this removes trouble with installer, also greatly reduces file size. I've just done a repack test (ultra compression level), size from 374 MB to 119 MB !! And this will save a lot bandwidth for SRMZ as well! Please consider this. (also there are some Thumbs.db junk files in cars folder)

PS: great mod! :lol:
