Problem With Laps Remaininglaps
Posted Nov 29 2017 - 03:48 AM
I'm hoping someone can help me. I've been playing GPL for the last couple of months. I have what I believe is the latest version (1.3) which states 188.8.131.52 on the startup screen. All has been working fine but recently I've experienced an issue with laps remaining when proceeding from practice to race. On the race menu screen it often gives an incorrect number of laps. For example, if I'm racing a 9 lap race it can often state "Lap: 9 of 9" (or any other number between 0 and 9). When I go into the race Pribluda will show 0L (or other number between 0 and 9). The race will still last the correct number of laps but the Pribluda information is incorrect and it also can affect the race results (on a couple of occasions it seems to discount my first lap of the race). I haven't found a pattern - it seems quite random.The issue happens on all tracks but appears more often on some tracks than others.
I'm wondering if one of the mods has affected a file. I have recently installed the 55 mod and the 67 GT sportscar mods. I can't be sure for certain but I don't remember experiencing this issue prior to installing these.
Has anyone else experienced this problem??

I found this from Ken:
But easier than editing this for every track is to patch with GPLShift. GPLShift has many many functions but one hidden advantage I found when using it is that the pitboard is visible no matter what FOV setting you use.
[ pit_lane_0 ]
lane_on_right = 1 ; 0 if lane on left, 1 if on right
lane_has_wall = 1 ; 0 if no pit wall, 1 if pit wall exists
lane_bounds_dlong = 5370.4 5715.0 ; start/end dlong of the pit lane
lane_bounds_dlat = -18.3 -3.7 ; start/end dlat of the pit lane
pit_board = 14.4 550 -100.0 100.0 ; dlat of board, dlong of board, dlong LOS start, dlong LOS end (last 2 not used)

Thanks for the quick responses guys.
I’ve tried your suggestion. I let the practice time count to zero then click “Accelerated Time” to get to the race screen. This seems to have helped somewhat but hasn’t totally solved the problem. There are still occasions when the wrong number of laps is displayed.
I still have GPL installed on an older laptop and don’t have this issue. The only difference I can see is that I haven’t installed any mods on that version.
Any other thoughts? I certainly appreciate your help as it’s driving me crazy when I enter a race and don’t know how many laps are left of somehow don’t get the correct race finish results at the end of a race.

(And before you ask, I'm getting in some early practice for one of my seasonal jobs as a Christmas Cracker joke writer. )

This way I also never have trouble with the laps counter.
