At 1680x1050 resolution I can read the numbers on all the dashboard dials in the 2020 GPL demo, this is true even for the smallest dials.  If I make a new install, patching the CD with gplinstall_beta_1.08.exe, the numbers on the smaller dials are too blurry to read.  Overall, the 2020 GPL demo has a sharper resolution than the CD/gplinstall_beta_1.08.exe install.

Is there a way to patch GPL such that I get a resolution as high as what the 2020 GPL demo has?

Thanks

I think every GPLEA car has HIGH RES Dashboards.

You need to look in the option sub folders that you find in every car under GPL\cars\cars67.
If some of them are not there, you will then go to 67 cars add-ons here in the forum and will find all that is available:

Hope is helpful :wave:

Is only the cockpit (dashboard dials) sharper in the GPL 2020 Demo or does the Demo overall look sharper?
If the GPL 2020 Demo overall looks sharper than CD/gplinstall_beta_1.08.exe installation it could also be graphics settings related.
The GPL 2020 Demo has by default optimized rasterizer v2 settings (and btw also wheel settings) and might therefore look different.

From the GPL 2020 Demo core.ini
