While using the latest 1.04 beta on a server I noticed that I can't deselect the GPLEA cars and some other stuff. I think it would be great to give some more working choices :)

It would be great to have a "crude" GPL with only the patches that let it load on new machines  :thumbup:

Yup. While it's a waste of space (500 MB) it's still a nice feature to have only one installer and choose full, custom and minimum. I did some easy testing and it should be possible, Looking forward. To bad I need to exclude the original files ;)

Now the main 1.05 is more or less ready I need to work on the documentation. Here's the current 1.05 installation document. You may find errors or spelling errors. Please help me make it better and report here if you find any and give me your suggestions :)

Hiya Bernd,

The bit where you say "The step to leave GPL is mandatory!!!"
Would be best re-worded (in red, bigger font and bold) as: Make sure you exit GPL so that the settings will be saved otherwise you WILL have problems later.

Otherwise looking very good. Thanks for all the effort and work you've put into this Bernd!


:clap2:

Thanks Keith for the suggestion. Biggest problem besides the wording is that maybe a lot of people don't read the readme so never reach the point of this :D

Thx Bernd.
Great work so far.
I will have a closer look/read within the next days.

Just a thought...
Although it is about installing GPL 67 many people might afterwards install GPL mods.
Maybe you could add a link in to my Easy Installation Guide, which shows how to install the mods.
German: http://de.gplworld.e...tion-guide.html
English: http://en.gplworld.e...tion-guide.html

Once you have released the new beta 1.05 installer I will also update my guides. :)


Which updates will be included for Nurburg?
There have been released nice updates recently in the "Small updates for Nurburgring" thread: http://srmz.net/inde...?showtopic=3770
by Nurby Jogi & GORDON (even season specific files).
I am sure they wouldn´t  disagree to include them in the installer.

New version 1.06 makes progress. Yes you heard right :) While 1.05 seems to be OK I noticed some stuff:

Kyalami infield looks terrible in the composition which is included. It looks like the infield is "empty" and you see the horizon bitmap. Would be no real problem but grass texture bitmaps and the horizon bitmap don't fit well. Maybe some kind soul has some ideas?

Server grids? In 1.05 I have included a possibility to install a minimum, more or less server installation. But this would be still using the papyrus starting grids or the historic correct ones from Dave Wright. But I remember there had been some online grids. Any hint where to download?

Nurby looks great :)

trackol17 is interesting due to the execsive testing those guys including Bart Westra most have done :0
Now the question for some of the server admins might be if they use trackol5,6 or 8 normally :D
My gut feeling tells me that 5 or 6 is the mostly used ones and I would prefer the middle one 6 :)

Why not see if you can use jackseller's update?
In that version, the infield is filled in with grass and it has many track objects on the outside of the circuit too.  :)

I agree about Jack's update for Kyalami. I use it , and it's beautiful, and runs very smooth. Not sure how accurate it is?

If he'll give you permission.

Jack's Kyalami update doesn't solve the infield problem.The other point, the season specific files doesn't work anymore with his update(pits armco).

That'S exactly what I noticed silence. And while all stuff looks great when you have noticed it is somehow "disturbing". Should check the track without updates :)

Bernd, you should also check your Monaco Rocks files!In the last installer were some really ugly ones(see pic), dated earlier than the final ones(beta?)

Oh, maybe it would be a good idea to include Monacane in the next installer?

I checked and in the latest versions of the GPLPS Installer I use only the official Monaco Rocks 2.x installer. Looking here (http://srmz.net/inde...?showtopic=3145) I see that Remy has posted some stuff. Is there no more then the missing files from Remy?

Bernd,

have found the appropriate mip.
The 2005 is out of your installer, the 2004 directly from the MR Download.

That's a 4 bits conversion from a 16 bits. Maybe Bernd used the 4 bits version of Monaco Rocks ?

This could be because the 4bits version is not so hard on the system. Will check it and keep it in mind :)
