I thought this was a global function, ie the exe you use determines what file to use with the original names as fallback if nothing is found. Does that apply to the other mods as well?

thoughts so too, it works for Oliver's Mount!

Phil, that renaming will not work for aintreeR. That unique naming format is only enabled for the six 1955 championship tracks.  :)
Yes, It's OK ... sorry. Thank you for the answer. BYE

All previous Mods allow only the program cover page and the bwpic used for the newspaper photo to be mod-specific.  These are usually, for example, of the format:  page065.pbf and bwpic65.pbf.

For the first time, in the 55Mod, all of the program and race results pages are 55Mod-specific..... but only for the six 1955 championship races (tracks).  :)

I must insist that you are wrong. This afternoon I have made page055.pbf files for several tracks, and they look great in game! For some reason, the only track it hasn't worked for so far is Bathurst. :)

Again, page055.pbf and bwpic55.pbf work for all tracks, just like page0XX.pbf and bwpicXX.pbf work for the other Mods.

The pg551, pg552, pg553, pg554, pg555 and evt55.pbf are the new format and work only for the 55Mod six 1955 championship tracks.  This is 'hard-wired' into the 55Mod physics patches.

A pbf file for a photo of C.D. Boulton at Aintree 200 (aintreeR).  Place in your layout folder.
Thanks for the photo, webfoot.  :)

[Edit] I have solved my problem see below for solution.


I have a strange problem with this track.  The gplc55.exe does not display page2.pbf nor event.pbf so I don't get any in-game track map, just a blank page!  Page1.pbf and page055.pbf both get shown correctly.

So far I have tried
  • Re-installing the track
  • Checked the pbf's in the folder with Picture Gallery.  They looked fine.
  • Deleting and rebuilding gplc55.exe
  • copying in another tracks page2 & event.  These don't work either, suggesting there is nothing wrong with the pbfs
  • Using the track with another mod - the pages display correctly
All other tracks in my season05.ini (I have 32 50's tracks in there) display page02 correctly.  It all suggests to be a problem with the exe patching.  Not a killer problem but a bit mysterious.

Anybody got any further ideas to try.

Solved the problem by copying page2.pbf to pg552.pbf and event.pbf to evt55.pbf.  So minor problem with the patching methinks, but easy work around.

aintreeR track does not use any other pbf files than:  page055, bwpic55, event, page1, page2, page3, page4 and page5.

The track-specific files evt55, pg551 - pg555 are only used for the 6 championship tracks.  This is 'hard-wired' into the 55Mod physics patches.

Yep, I saw discussion earlier in the thread.

But that's not how my setup is working.  Something wrong on my end with how the patch is working but I can live with it.

Thanks Greg for this track!

Is there any chance someone can make a working groove for 67s to be raced here? ;) I suppose with the 55mod it's hardly an issue, but with the 67s you have to brake hard, and the lack of markers and a groove makes it real hard to run clean laps. I understand this reversed track was done for the 55mod, but it's also on the oAo schedule to be raced with 67s!
