I hope you can find out what the other 2 settings really do but I can imagine that this is not easy.

Hi Mark

thx for that very interesting read. :thumbup:

It would be great to have a proper 67 (mod) and apply your findings to other mods.

Good luck for your research.

Cheers
Stefan

Anyway, in my mind I have found the GPL holy grail and believe I can apply it to all the mods in due time (I am darn busy at this point in my life).

Interesting read Mark. Hope there'll still be some progress on this.

Just curious: what's it that you do in real life? And back in China?

Hey Stefan, Rudy, man theres a few old names still getting around!

I will be this year releasing a range of sports/track day cars that I have been devoloping and setting up for over the last few years here. Going to be pretty busy this half year as at least 2 car models will hit the market.

I actually started GPL up last night and having some fun again (drove till 2am!) - except for the 30 year old arcade high pitch engine sound coming through intermintently that's ruining the fun (only sometimes and only when driving, fine on replays). I have never had this issue before ever so off to read Mr Simpson's sound FAQ's..  :idunno:

All fixed, double the sound sample and halved the sound files.

I just drove that RoadAm, pretty basic and I'm sure I have a further advanced one than that somewhere that had the beginnings of the start tower, there's another issue with corner camber that I am aware of and was tested like that intentionally that I will need to correct, I'll have a look through the week.

I really would like to finish off but people will have to have patience.

A proper 67 F1 car has always been a dream. Make the dream come true Mark.

Mark-
with the release of Can-Am, and the hope of getting F1-67, i'm sure we are all no doubt anxious to see you able to complete the project!
please keep us updated?
and best of luck on both 67s and RoadAm being finished.  :)

Mark,

your findings and remarks remind of what Gilles Maltais  discovered and analysed too , about the DK process  

He applied what he learned of what DK and his team wrongly implemented to his 67 F2 mod project, and did the necessary correction on the .exe.As a result,he got no faster cars than the real F2 67, but far rmore believable handling cars with throttle/ steering corrections, as in real life racing of that era. But all the millions of parameters DK put in the .exe that make GPL so great where still there.

Have still his evolutives .exes on a HDD, and sometimes uses them with great satisfaction    

I have plenty of hope that he join again SRMZ, and why not, work with you, as you did with others physics gurus
