next day i tried to start GPL through GEM and GPL would not start at all
i tried everything i could think of including deleting all appropriate exe files that did not work
so i deleted and reinstalled GEM including the options (head movement no letterbox among other patches) didn't work reinstalled GPL didn't work
now i'm thinking maybe GEM is the problem so i delete that and installed a different version without the options hey presto its all working
i then put the options back in and guess what it wouldn't work at all and YES i did try them one at a time
my question is why would it be working one day n not the next in the first place and why wont it work now even after fresh installs hmmmmmm
this problem exist in all mods well the ones i tried 55, f2. 67 and 69x
in before you all ask YES i have checked for viruses and all came back clean

The one I recall gave you four options for each driver performance parameter: the percent chance he would perform better than normal and by how much; and the percent chance he would perform worse than normal and by how much. So, for example, a front runner might have a 3% chance of up to 20% less power ...the loss may be so slight you would never notice or he may be a backmarker for that race. There was also a restore button to reset the defaults. I loved that little program, and spent untold hours tweaking the cfg file ...and naturally had one for each carset.
For less than a full field it could randomly select the specified number of drivers and create a new driver.ini with just them. (The Nascar util didn't do that, like GPL we always raced the best drivers.)
As prize says, if you limit the number of AI drivers in a race, it appears that GPL automatically selects the best drivers to race against. Is this correct? Would it be possible to change the driver.ini file to give a more random and variable selection of opponents? Also, it seems it might be quite easy to do this for a single race. But would it also be possible to do it for an entire championship season?
Would other GPL drivers be interested in a tool like this?
I must admit, I have very little experience with editing driver.ini files, as I am usually a hotlapper, although I do know some of the basics. There are a couple of "hype" values for each driver, along with a number for "variability". Perhaps those are the number which would need to be tweaked?
I would be willing to look into writing a driver.ini randomizer. It wouldn't be pretty - I don't know how to use Vis Studio to write nice Windows GUIs, but I could develop a simple command-line utility which would take basic info from a .INI or config file and fiddle around with the standard driver.ini file to give you a tweaked version.
Please let me know if anyone is interested in this, and if there are any GPL AI experts out there who are familiar with the driver.ini files, I'd be grateful for some basic advice on:
( 1 ) Which values need to be changed to influence driver behaviour, and how sensitive are they?
( 2 ) Is it possible to drive an entire season with custom AI drivers to give a more varied season?
( 3 ) Does GPL already include a certain randomness for each driver, denoted by the "variability" number?

When using the clutch pedal of my G25 to get moving, the smallest lift of the pedal fully engaged the clutch and the car bogs down. Is there a way to get a longer travel on the clutch pedal?
