Accessing Other Windows Without Leaving Gpl

Today, 09:14 AM

Maybe this is useless trivia or should be placed under the heading “Who cares?” I’m not sure if anyone knows or has tried this, but I found a way to access other programs without leaving GPL – something like using alt-tab in a regular Windows session. I’m using Windows 10 but I suspect it’s the same in other Windows versions.

You have to have a second monitor running off your GPU which shows the desktop and not GPL when you’re running GPL.

Before starting GPL, open the programs that you want to access and move them to the second monitor. I like to see the Replay Analyzer, Setup Manager and the spreadsheets I use to list my PBs etc.

After starting GPL, just hit ctrl-alt-delete which brings up the green screen where you will select Task Manager.

At that point you can move the cursor back and forth between the both monitors. But whenever you hit either the esc or green button in GPL, you’ll have to do the ctrl-alt-delete > Task Manager again to access the 2nd monitor again. If the cursor seems to not go back to GPL menu screens, remember that the menus are 640x480 and virtually located in the top left of the GPL monitor. Crossing the cursor near the top of the 2nd monitor will allow the cursor back to GPL. Hmm, this might only work if your 2nd monitor is showing on the right side of the main monitor. Oddly, in my display settings > Display, I show Display 1 on the left and Display 2 on the right. You may have to play around with this.

If you’re in the Race Weekend menu, you’ll see the cursor move back and forth between monitors. If you’re in-car you won’t see the cursor, but when you think it’s over GPL, click either mouse button to bring the sound back. Without sound, you can actually drive the car, and at the same time be able to access the other programs.

In a replay, the cursor can be moved back and forth visibly and clicking in GPL will bring the sound back.

In GPL you can create a replay and analyze it without leaving GPL which can be a real time saver. For setups, you can create a new setup in the GPL Setup Manager and it’ll appear in-game the next time you open the Setup menu.

However, if you modify an already created setup, the changes will not appear until you go from the Race Weekend menu to the Track Selection menu and come back to that track.

Anyone Up For Some Good Old Fashioned Pickup Racing?

Today, 01:13 AM

Posted by Dav_Daddy in N2K3-"Hey, anyone need a racer?"
That's pickup like a basketball game not pickup like in truck... Lol

A good friend and myself have had a relapse of the old sim racing bug so we've been polishing our skills with some NR2003 most nights before making the commitment to join iRacing, also so we don't make fools of ourselves once we do; so anyone who feels like running a few laps on any given evening (except Sat) around 5-6:30PM Arizona time hit me up on Discord (dav#6652) will be moving to mumble soon so will update the deets here when that has happened.

For the moment we're running plane old vanilla cup mod with the original tracks.

Open setups with baseline race setup of my own provided pre session.  (Winner of each race exports their setup to be available as a baseline set for the next time we visit that track.)

Right now we're using 30 or so ai cars 94% to 98% difficulty to fill out the field.  Let me know what number you run and I'll eliminate that ai car for you.

Races are 3X, 30% in length (considering 35%), yellows on (except Bristol and Martinsville).

We'll restart the race until everyone can get a lap or 2, if you cause two restarts you go eoll.  If you are responsible for 2 yellows please park it.

Currently I'm hosting the session on my gaming pc.  I'm considering migrating to my Linux Media Server PC as a dedicated host so folks can setup and run races anytime with whichever settings, mod, and track version they please.

Feel free to copy and paste this post, or provide a link here anywhere that Papyrus aficionados gather these days the more the merrier!
