Hi,

I have created this topic so no one misses a fix (especially important for SERVERS) made by Tommie (TvO) a couple of years ago.
The issue was initially reported by Cookie / UKGPL :thumbup: in the GPL Repository forum: 69xtra bug needs a fix.

Cookie said:

69x mod makes double driver numbers at a full grid!
We have full grids at UKGPL and troubles at several races.
This seems to make the server dizzy and gives lots of extra work when importing the results to the UKGPL database.

TvO said:

The server takes it's starting numbers from the AI lineup drvc69.ini. This file had both Jacky Ickx and Pedro Rodriguez with starting number 12. I've changed Ickx' number to 7, which was unused in the generic drvc69.ini.

The new drvc69.ini (www.grandprixlegends.co.nf/files/drvc69.ini) must be placed in the root Grand Prix Legends folder.
This fix is recommended for EVERY server hosting 69x, although the bug only occurs when the grid is already filled with 16 drivers or more.

Cheers,
Gaizka

P.S. According to Cookie's posts in another topic, this fix may also solve other issues when playing the mod offline (AI, crashes, etc.).

Full grid

Tried differents AIs win in car views at Spa67, and the drvc69.ini fix don't work . The game freeze in incar view; whatever car I swap too after less than half a lap. .

My replay memory override is set at 128000 , the default one

I noticed the 69 Extra carset is unusually very slow to upload,compared with all other mods.

tests with full AI grid.

Michel,

I usually do not race against the AI.
I only use the fix for our GPLRACER servers.


I always use these core.ini settings on our servers and on my race PC:
[ Replay ]
replayMemoryOverride = 200000


I hope Paul Skingley does not mind that I quote his post of our GPLRACER private forum section here regarding the 69x problem:

Quote

69x has mod/track specific driver ini for the champ tracks and some non champ races.
Some of those races had less than 19 entrants.

If you race a full grid at a track with mod/track specific driver ini that has less than 19 entries GPL runs out of numbers from the driver ini so it doubles some.
