Edit: I found a solution :up:
see note down below...

On my Race PC  POV back & forward doesnt work for me in  69-Extra mod ( uses gplx69.exe right ? )

Strange thing ; on my working PC  POV back & forward works in  69 Extra mod .

Regardless  starting via exe directly or via GEM+ . Even using no letterbox or not ...

The move is slow and stuttering , but it works.

I can deal with up & down dont work at all.

general question : whats the reason 69extra mod do handle POV different to old 69mod ?

Is there a patch  or newer version of gplshiftt , or are the modders working on that prob ?

BTW : Both PCs run WIN10 Home on same update level.

Any idears ?

note: Solotion to me :

-troublemaker was the version of gplshift-patch  did run on my Race PC ,which was v0771 Beta
-newest version v0790 , as well both older avaiable versiions v0760 Beta ,v0781 Beta did not work either ( http://www.gplshift....shift/index.htm )
-But version v0732 Alpha did the trick !  Strangley this version comes under the exe file called simply  `GPLpatch `.  I found in my GPL main folder of an old installation , together with GPLshift ini & GPLshift configuration file , belongs to this version.

Installation procedure execution:
1. run GPLshift Patch as admin and let it unpatch GPL. ( should be in the main GPL folder )
2. delete GPLshift patch , GPLshift.ini ,and GPLshiftt configuration file. ( Best to make a copy of those before , to be on save side  ).
3. copy GPLpatch together with its GPLshift ini & GPLshift configuration file to the main folder of GPL.
4.run GPLpatch
5.configure GPLshift file to ya preferences and save it.
6. delete gplx69.exe  ( not sure if really needful , but guess GEM needs that to rebuild the changed exe right ).
7. run GEM  , jump into ya 69x car  and change the point of view to ya liking.

Contrary to the instruction inside GPLshift , the movements are done only via arrow keys without shift buttom at all !!!

Where to find that old gplpatch and its files ?

good question ....well I can collect mine in a 7zip and maybe Cookie could manage to make them downloadable here at SRMZ. I will ask him

Is this using the up and down cursor arrows to shift driver position backwards and forwards,  A facility of GPL Shift (Zoom=KA)?

If so, I think this has been discussed before, it just doesn't work for the 69 Extra Mod.  But that is just me talking from memory so I may be wrong.

Hello Cookie ,

To me all other mods do run fine with this old version v0732 Alpha.

But with POV movement like instruction inside GPLshift.ini do indicate .
(arrow keys/ctrl/shift )
For/back as well up/down do work.

69Extra mod is the only one , cant handle up/down and uses arrow keys withoutt shift or ctrl button pressed same time ....

btw. I am using Clup sport wheel & pedals . I have no idear what the benefits of these newer GPLshiftt version are. But didnt get into it ,to be honest....

well, ok I will try to upload
