So, uhmm...well...(Meh, just start like always) Hello guys, im a new member. I'm actually here since December when I discovered GPL and yes, I'm a newbie, yes, i downloaded a few mods, and yes, I dont really understand how GEM+ Works at a 100% but anyway, Im gonna introduce myself. I'm "Jackknife" (reason of the name? a Tokyo Xtreme Racer character). I might be a inactive person, however, im sure that we can all get along :D . I might also do a few racing stories too :P and as always, i wait for the feedback (and for the help since i quiet dont understand GEM+ :S )

Welcome Jackknife :up:

GEM+ is the central utility to configure and start GPL :

- Mods
- Carsets
- Seasons
- Graphics
- Controler
- Tracks
- setups
- AI

If there are any concrete questions, give us your PC specs to be able to help ;)

Cheers

ah, hello, guys. and hello there Cookie! so i understand that part of configuration, however, i dont get one thing: do i need an specifical .exe file to run some of the mods? because i did a few mistakes trying to run the World Sportscar mod with the normal exe file so can you clear me that doubt please? :S

First you must configure the Sport Cars mod in GEM, then, when you press the GPL, IGOR or VROC button GEM+ creates the mod specific exe files!
Once you have done this you can start the gplcgt.exe for the Sport Cars ;)

Curious about that, I have a project of doing something using various sims/games from 1950 on, but that is still on the shelf!

Welcome Jacknife - what Ginetto is telling you is its best to start from zero with an install.  If you've not installed GPL before, use the "GPLPS GPL Installer Beta 1.07" installer in combination with your GPL CD. It will install practically everything you need to get GPL going.  After that, the GEM+ install is detailed and should get you on the road to running the various mods.

If you're looking for a relaxed place to make some friends and race on-line, check out lopen.autosimsport.net.  LoPeN is more of a drinking club with a racing problem - but drinking is not a requirement to have fun.  It has been said that the LoPeN league races are "The best bar I've ever been to!"  We've been averaging 12 to 14 racers each week

There's a getting started guide there too.
