Hello to all!

Need help in following case:
Since i install the 55 mod i have a wrong POV in the 'in Car' view. Can't see the steering wheel nor the Instruments. Sitting is much too high. This view is in all mods and cars the same since i installed the 55 mod.
Where i can change the POV in GPL ?  Never had this strange behavior in GPL before.

If anybody can help would be great.

Wolfgang

There are a few things that you can adjust.

1) To change the FOV (not POV), you can delete the gplc55.exe, then open GEM and adjust the “Field of view (degrees)” to a larger number.
2) To see a larger view, you can use the patch to remove the top and bottom Letterbox black bars.  See http://gplmotorworks.gplworld.de/
3) To change the POV, you can use GPLShift.  I think that it comes with the new installer, so it’s just a matter of enabling it by running GPLshift_Patch.EXE in the main GPL folder, or else get it from http://www.gplshift.dk/

In the GPLShift.ini have:
[ DRIVER VIEW ]----------------------------------------------------------------
Up&Down = 1 ;OPTIONS: 0    1 ;EFFECT:

;0 =   OFF
;1 =   Move the Driver View up or down by using  
;   left SHIFT key with ARROW keys:
;   Up =  Up      
;   Down  =  Down
;   Right =  Not uset     
;   Left  =  Back to default position

Forward&Back = 1    ;0 =   OFF   
;1 =   Move Driver View forward or back by using  
;   left CTRL key with ARROW keys:
;   Up =  Forward   
;   Down  =  Back   
;   Right =  Not uset   
;   Left  =  Back to default position
;Notice: These 2 functions has no effect in LOOK  
; AROUND TrackIR Vector Expansion mode.
;--------------------------------------------------
If this doesn't help, please include some screenshots (use FRAPS) to show your view.

Hi Bob,

thanks for your answer. But thats not the solution. Have the impression that i have always a zoom in my Screen Resolution. Pribluda is shown in big letters, also the scoreboard is immense big.
Dont know really what i should do next. Have deleted all builded exes from GEM2 already and let them rebuild. Still have no Center sight to the steering Wheel.

thanks again
Wolfgang

Do you have a 4K screen perhaps?
I experience the same issue since W10 update.
De viewing point is lowered and i can only see a proper GPL view when using 640 pixels :(
Haven't found a cure yet and don't want to rollback drivers. I want to move forward not backwards ;)

This morning i had another update so i checked if that solved it but no go i'm afraid..

It looks like W10 (or the videodriver) doesn't scale the screen properly after switching from the menu to the race screen. It might be worth trying resized menus to see if that solves it but i haven't found the time to try that yet..

Hi Mech,

yes that it is. Changed to an UHD Screen and Win 10.

Now i know nothing went wrong with the install of the 55mod.

Thank for clarification Mech.
Hope for a solution to solve this problem.
