Visual Pace Notes - The Only Way I Can Make That Work At Present.

Yesterday, 09:15 PM

The attached PDF shows how I have been approaching this topic for my long term project.

Its a system that works and is fairly simple, but does require manual file handling, which is a bit of a pain.

I am not a coder, however I tried to teach myself VB or C++ from UTube tutorials to come up with a "File Swapper" program to perform the same tasks, however it seems coding a "Copy/Paste/Overwrite" function is rather more complicated than I first assumed. See attached images.

So I have given up on that idea at least for the present.

Back to subject though, the fundamentals of this approach remain viable for any track, but requires track makers to recompile the track 3do incorporating new "Direction Arrow" 3do sets and their accompanying textures. This system does not affect the physical driving conditions in the track in any way, its purely a visual change.

For those still curious about the state of my own track work, I have made some little progress and hope to show that in a new video or two in a couple of months time. Its a long way off completion though, as I have other priorities and this is just a nice hobby for when I have time.

Fear not though, for there is a new Bike sim coming out this year which might satisfy any desire to "ride the Mountain". [ Not sure about the riding physics, but the track does look good ]

Time Between Gpl Rank Improvements?

So, I'm sure someone can better this - 13 years and 6 months?

Installation Problem

19 Aug 2017

Posted by Bernd Rosemeyer in GPL-"Help! I'm having trouble with..."
I've got a problem after installing GPL with gem+ and mods on a new computer. It seems strange to me, perhaps it has to do with installing all mods, including stratos-mod as last one, before starting gem+ and using any mod.
But it's only a helpless guess and I really don't know what to do.

I appreciate very much any help. I'm using GPL since 1999 and I'm really in love with it. In my opinion no other computer game compares to this simulation.


After installation only stratos-mod works perfectly.
In case of other mods (1) pribluda is absent, the top of the screen is black, in race mode there are colours in this black top part of the screen; (2) at the bottom of the screen font size with informations like speed is too small; (3) the quarter (a perfect rectangle) at right side bottom of the racing screen is darker than the rest of the racing screen (racing screen means the middle part of the computer screen, the part, where racing is done).
In stratos-mod these problems are absent!
((4) gem+ doesn't remember the resolution 1920x1080 and every time I have to go to options to change it from 640x480)


Using gplinstall_beta1.08 and gempackage_2.5.0.32 pursuant to GPL_Easy_Installation_Guide_GER_v1.6.1.

All mods installed but thundercars, night and 67historical; stratos-mod was the last one, but installed without update.

I first installed and updated gpl, than I made adjustments in GPL 1.3, then I installed gem+ without starting it, then I installed all mods with updates (only stratos without update) before starting gem+;  I closed gem+ before starting it again and making adjustments for the mods.

My system:

Intel® Core™i7-7500U
64 Bit


I have to correct my observations:

1) The quarter of the whole screen is darker at right side bottom: the too small fonts at the bottom of the screen in this quarter are darker too and the gear display is only visible during gearshift.

2) Remembering the resolution 1920x1080 has nothing do do with the problem, I think, because now I found, that in some cases (mods) gem+ remebers it.

My GT mod don't load the AI cars.Both with race or champion the only car loaded is the player and when i quit the race ,with the red button,the game ask"want you abandon the testing?".I'm not able to understand what is wrong in some files.All the drvers.ini,specific and generic,are in the correct folder.I have already reinstalled the mod overwriting the old files,also becouse to delete the old is impossible.
Someone have an idea?

Will Gpl Ever Go Vr?

19 Aug 2017

I have been considering buying a bigger monitor, but part of me still hopes that someone will find a way to get GPL working in VR, either with Occulus Rift or some other equipment. Does anyone think or know if VR could be coming to GPL soon, or are we all going to be using monitors for years to come?
