I bet you installed 69 MOd; not 69 Xtra MOD (with many more cars to choose).
They  are 2 totally different MOD's and one don't need the other.

Hi ginetto,

No I don`t think so. I`ve had the original 69 mod installed for a long time. As I said in my reply to Greg, I got the 69 X`tra mod from here: http://srmz.net/inde...?showtopic=6918

It`s the same as the mod that`s here is`nt it? http://www.grandprix...art 4 EXTRA.htm

There`s a download on that mod page though so I`ll maybe try using that.

That's the right one tjc; you probably aren't using the right physics.
You mentioned that you have 69 mod from long time; is it possible that you did select  the old 69 MOD instead?
Physics of 69Xmod have the little window in the setup menu to choose the car from; if you don't see it, the physics are evidently different.
Having both MODs on the same installation might bring to errors. :think:

The physics are correct ginetto... 69-EXTRA is selected for the 69 X`tra mod in Gem.

I think it`s actually working now. I`ve checked things through this morning and found that some cars don`t have a choice of car graphics and others do. The Matra MS10, Eagle AAR101 and the Cooper T86b don`t have other car graphics options. The McLaren M7, Lotus 49b and the Ferrari 312 (as well as many other cars) do have several car graphics options.

I think that`s right anyway... is that how it is for you?

I must have selected cars last night when I first tried the mod that didn`t have any car graphics options and thought maybe it was`nt working correctly.

Thanks for the help guys. :)

I'm getting an error when trying to install it.
Tried running it via Administrator.
Not sure if I ever asked this before?

Found the error.

Just retried installer, runs fine on my win8, though it triggered windows compatibility setting. It seems the installer 1st self-extract to temp, then run another setup.exe to start installing (extracting files, which can be done with 7zip), which can be troublesome.

I'd strongly suggest repack this mod into a 7zip file, either self-extractable or just plain 7z archive. Not only this removes trouble with installer, also greatly reduces file size. I've just done a repack test (ultra compression level), size from 374 MB to 119 MB !! And this will save a lot bandwidth for SRMZ as well! Please consider this. (also there are some Thumbs.db junk files in cars folder)

PS: great mod! :lol:

Hi, I wonder if it is possible to assemble a custom carset consisting of only wingless cars, a la '67. Because I'm not the greatest fan of wings in GPL, but the '69 cars are otherwise nice. No idea how the AI would cope without wings though...

The GPL 1969 Extra Mod and 1969 v3.1 Mod have a new home.
It is now hosted on my subdomain:

http://69f1.gplworld.de/

I reworked some sections of the original website files, which I got from Paul Skingley. Thx for your support.

Paul, please update the links of your 1st post. :)

I just noticed a small error in the list of car slots for the GPL extra mod on the website. The MS10 and MS84 are the wrong way around, I think.
