I don't know if did you already spoke about this track, but Bugatti is one of the tracks that I think should be inspected for gaps or orientation problems.

I had a freeze offline last week... which made me suspect there must have some of those issues. The freeze was just reaching the 50 meters signal before the first corner of the "esses du garage bleu"

Is far to be one of my favorite track, but is one of the "historicals"...

Cheers, Marcos.

We raced at Bugatti and had four freezes. Two in the qualy and two in the race. I think it's a long know problem with that track...

Thank you Lou for all this :thumbup:
FYI A new Bugatti is in development and if the "old one" is too hard to fix, you can just wait for the new product. :wave:

Hello guys

I did a hotlap competition in Paul Ricard (http://freeleo.hu/we...&race=201604272) and put that track with the 1967x mod in the Mybroga Server, at VROC (or ip 200.68.67.133:32766) without password

Be careful of using the patched .trk file provided by Lou Magyar some posts above. You should only drop that file in your /tracks/ricard folder

Please, try to do some laps online in order to test this track, and report any freeze here (or by PM to me). Also if you could drive without problems (which would be great!!)

Thanks, Marcos.

The fix seems to work offline. Should I put it up on Hauls2 in full F2 for a test online ?

The fix seems to work online too. Hauls2 is up. I ran many laps in the Lotus and Matra F2 with no problems.

Speaking of bugs in tracks, is it possible to modify the 3do so it lines up with the trk? I'm currently practicing Interlagos and there are a couple of sections where the car floats above the racetrack.

A fellow racer mentioned he had problems at Le Mans de la Sarthe so I looked into it.  The darn thing had orientation mismatches and gaps everywhere.  I've fixed the TRK and uploaded it HERE

Thanks!!

Another track with reported problems is Thruxton. I think it maybe has a similar problem than Paul Ricard and Sarthe...

Thanks again, Marcos.

I have added to our GPLRACER league track blacklist:

Nivelles 1974 -> 1969 Extra Mod: 1st race: 5 freezes; 2nd race: 2 freezes


A pity as the track has a nice layout.

What a shame, Stefan... in Mybroga "we" (I still didn't know gpl) raced Nivelles at the begginings of the league. I'll check if somebody reported freezes... did you use 60fps patch?

"We" also raced effex that time and I'm pretty sure that I have read about freezes in that track.

Reading in the first page of the thread, however, I found that Sepang or Montjuic are considered as "risky". We raced both several times and freezes were not a problem (maybe some isolated freeze, but nothing massive).

Cheers. Marcos

Hello Marcos.

Thx for the feedback.
We were running Nivelles with default 36 FPS.

About Efexx we have noted:

Quote

Efexx -> several CTDs and discos in the race (4 out of 16 drivers), some freezes during qualy,  2 drivers also had problems to join the servers (65 mod). There was also a server freeze.

And for Montjuic:

Quote

Montjuic Parque -> heavy stutters with older PCs (even in standard version), heavy chat lags, freeze danger (69 Mod, 67 Papy)
-> seems to work fine with stronger modern PCs, so limegreen colour = "fixed" / "behoben" status for modern PCs


GPLRACER GPL Track Blacklist
http://forum.gplrace...ost.php?id=207



The "funny" thing with risky tracks is that freezes, CTDs, .... do not always happen.
It depends on the mod you use, the number of drivers, if someone crashes at a certain place of the track and so on.
There are so many factors that influence a lightly bad programmed track.


The worst programmed track we had so far is Mallory Park:

Quote

Mallory Park -> on- & offline freezes + server freezes -> undriveable

Ginetto + team has started in 2017 to rebuild Mallory Park. I have just aksed whats left to do to call it "final". :)
