Think I've found the first incompatibility hurdle in my slow but steady F2TotalRank quest.

Glacier (and Winter Glacier) seem to be incompatible with the F2 mod. Track loads fine in other mods. Glacier International works fine too...

Just tried it out and works fine here with Lola, Matra and Brabham. Rast.  D3D v2.


Try to reinstall it maybe?

Are you using the v2 rasterizers?

I've just tested them with OpenGL v2 and both tracks seem to work fine for me. Sorry you're having a problem Darren.

Strange.. problem does seem to be car-specific. I can run the Matra but the McLaren causes a crash.
Perhaps a filename clash between the car and the track, or perhaps some gfx updates that have been applied over the years.

I'll try the reinstall first.

Reinstall of Glacier, plus the asphalt updates listed on the Track Database resolves the problem.
Winter Glacier however still crashes out with a completely clean install.

I'm guessing some kind of issue with one of the mips shared by both tracks standard installs, but replaced by the add-ons to Glacier.
I'll try putting those same gfx addons into the Winter track to see if it makes a difference.

You can check for missing files with my program 3dostrn quite easily.
Just unpack the dat in a new directory drop the contents of your current track in there as well en and run the program.
It should report missing mips.
