I have confirmed GPLshift is activated in gpl.exe but it is NOT activated in gplc65.exe using GPL Inspect.  I delete gplc65.exe, then let GEM recreate it but GPL Inspect still says it is NOT activated for gplc65.exe.  Any suggestions?

Also, the readme file is a bit vague on how to adjust the drivers view.  Per the readme file:

* Adjust DRIVER VIEW Up/Down & Forward/Back (3D moving) in GPL's In Car View   ????? What keys do you use?

* Zoom in/out In Car View (2D)   
  You can now use the keyboard ARROWs key (KA mode) for Zooming
  (works also in the Replay)

Is there a difference between forward/back and zoom in/out?  It sounds like the same thing.

Thanks,

Stuart

Well after going into the GPLshift.ini file I figured-out I had to change Up&Down to 1 and Foward&Back to 1.  The GPLshift.ini file had the information which wasn't provided in the readme file about which keys to use.  Finally, apparently GPLshift will work in even if it is not activated for that specific mod.

[ 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

Yes!

ZOOM is changing FOV

DRIVER VIEW Up/Down & Forward/Back is changing POV

We have a long thread about it some days ago...

I use this but it doesn't seem to work with all mods. No joy for me with the 67X, 69X, 68E or 68L Mods. :(

Without changing anything in Gplshifit.ini, because it works fine for most mods, I get the following behaviour...

In 67X and 69X the up and down arrows change FOV (everything zooms in and out)
In 68E and 68L the arrows do nothing at all.

I'd love to know if I'm doing something wrong or if this is a known issue.

Is a known issue. :rolleyes:
GPLshift development was interrupted before the release of MODs that have different set of physics so some of the features don't work with them; they are not fully compatible.
