i reinstalled gpl using gplinstall v1.08 followed the bouncing ball on the easy install guide

ran a few laps on different tracks n different cars all went well

but then i tried gem it came back with cannot find players and or track not installed

even though i just ran the same track with that same player grrrr

i tried clear read only, the indexing thing n a few other well known tricks nothing has worked YET

oooh i am runnin win10 (im tipping that goes a looooooooooooooooong way in explaining everything haha)

One thing I often find popping up on Win 10 is an alert from Windows telling me that it has blocked network access, and asking me if I want to open it up for just local networks, or all networks. I usually click on "local" and it goes away. The only problem is that when it pops up, it usually does it behind whatever I'm running, so most times I don't even see it! When you're having internet problems with GPL, try alt-tabbing to see if Windows is trying to show you an alert. Check the taskbar too, as sometimes it appears minimised.

I re-installed gpl,the other day,on my old Toshiba laptop.Which was running Vista OS,but now converted to Windows 7.
Because I hadn't used the machine for a while,when I went back to it and tried gpl,I was faced with slow graphics at about 15 fps,where before it was cooking with gas. I also found some corrupted tree graphics,like trees in the air. Don't know why?because I hadn't made any changes.
So I re-installed,with the 1.07 installer and all was well. But on the initial try gem couldn't find my player. Even though I had gone into gpl,through the exe and created a player. Looking in the gpl dir and player folder,there was no created driver. Why ?
So I went to my ext hdd and copy pasted,from an old gpl dir,a player name and gem then recognized gpl,bringing up the interface. This was after gem come up with the 'Can't find player error ?
Go figure ?

TP: 😊

Brocky you wrote GEM, but iGOR is for online racing, a typo?

Why do you want to do a reinstallation with the older installer v1.07? I would always go for the latest version gplinstaller v1.08.

Thanks Stefan !

I noticed Brocky stating the 1.08 installer.I didn't realize that been the new one.Thought Brocky had made a typing error and meant 1.07.

Right I have just re-installed gpl.Haven't added anything to it yet,so I may as well re-install again,with the 1.08.Again thanks for pointing out Stefan.

By the way is the link to the 1.08 in the SRMZ repository and what updates,differences and benefits are there,from the 1.07-1.08.

Sorry Brocky that my idea didn't work for you.Was hoping it would !

TP: :D

EDIT- Just found 1.08 on gpl wordpress :lol:

Stefan when i said gem i was  meaning it in a generic way

gem igor vroc it's all the same to me so my apologies for that

as for v1.07 i was thinking it may work as ive had no problem with it before while v1.08  im not 100% sure of being the first time ive used it

TP noprobs mate

:ranton:  im just so frustrated since win10 forced its way onto my computer nothing but problems with that :crap: ms call an operating system and not just gpl either :rantoff:

I guess the v1.08. has more and improved updates.
There could be info about it on the installer website or in the readme of the installer.

I can understand your frustration.
It is just difficult to help when we talk about different things. ;)

So, in GEM+ there is no player?
And the server list shows that your tracks are not installed (marked with a red cross, if I remember correctly )?

Could you pls make a screenshoft of your error message(s)?

I also use Windows 10 and I don`t have any problems. The only problem I had was that Pribluda after the Windows Anniversary update, but that has fixed itself with a later Windows update.
