Problem With Gpl And Tv Via Hdmi

Today, 09:13 AM

Hi all!

Well, i have an interesting issue. I run GPL via GEM+. I do it with my Samsung SmarTV as monitor, connected to the PC via HDMI cable. All goes right. But when I go to the game, the screen with the car in boxes appears on the top left of the screen, very little, and the game crash to desktop without error message.

But, if I don't use the hdmi connection, only the screen of my laptop, the game run perfectly.

I tried to plug the HDMI once the game is running, I mean, when the car is in the laptop screen, running, I plugin the HDMI cable and... what happens? Both the TV and the laptop screen freezes, but funnily, the car is still going: I can hear the engine, the car crashing and all kind of things. The game is running, but both screens are freezing.

The resolution of the HDMI and GPL is 1366x768, the top of the ingame options, and matches the resolution of the TV via HDMI.

I changed de DirectMirror... in the core.ini from 1 to 0, but nothing.

Funny enough, once upon a time it works perfectly, but with an absolutely fresh installation, did it yesterday, it is impossible to play on the tv.

Could someone help me?

Thanks a lot in advance!!!!

Want Original Sounds After Installing With Gplps Installer, Bug?

Today, 03:12 AM

Posted by Niels_at_home in GPL-"Help! I'm having trouble with..."
Hiho chaps,

Long time no see! (1.5 decades to be precise)..  Hope all of you are doing great and that the worst that has happened to us is the appearance of an increasing number of grey hairs.. :-)

Since GPL is now 20 years old I kinda want to revisit it for some nostalgia. Of course mods made GPL great, but I want to go back to 1998 so that means no mods! Just Dx7 or OpenGL to make it work on my 'modern' PC.

Using the GPLPS installer is easy, but I think there is a bug when you don't install the custom sounds. You can't assign controls or click 'ahead' to load the track. Putting custom wav files in the sounds folder makes it work. With just the original sound.dat file in there, it doesn't work.

I guess this is because originally GPL didn't have unique sounds for all of the cars, and some patch made it possible to load WAV files for each car. I think this patch is applied even if you only install GPL without any extra's in the GPLPS installer. Then it can't find the WAV files and refuses to work.

Anyway, I would most like to have the original sounds (poor as they are..) back in there. I guess I either have to somehow reverse this car sound patch, or unpack the sound.dat file somehow and make copies of the original sounds for each car...

Any tips how I can achieve this pure old school stock sound GPL experience?

Hello Everybody!

Last week I thought it would be challenging to do a F1 2018 Carrer, as I'm not yet very competitive cause of only little practice. Anyway, I did a teaser Video About it, to inform my viewers about the team I would drive with and all the gameplay settings I would choose as a challenge!

Here you can see the video, that of course I did commenting in English :P :P :P :https://www.youtube....h?v=V-U-UU_sqh8. Enjoy!

So MAYBE we plan to start soon!

Nice time!
