Ea Sports F1 2001 On A Windows 8?

09 Aug 2020

Posted by Elijahroberson in I Wanna talk about other Sims or Games
Yesterday I was cleaning out my old computer desk when I came across a copy of F1 2000 and F1 2001 buried within the depths of the desk. I had been looking for these for some time and was hoping they would still work as these games were newer than some Papy games I can run on my pc without any patches. Unfortunately, F1 2001 did not. I launched the autorun, ran the configuration program, and when I launched the game all I was met with was a minute of my cursor loading. Nothing ever actually popped up other than the admin approval window. I then tried running it in a Windows XP, and Windows 98 compatibility mode, yet that didn't change anything either. I don't think compatibility modes have ever actually helped me when I needed them. With no online patches for more modern OSs, I am pretty much out of luck. Does anyone have any idea how to get this game running on Windows 8? I know 8 is outdated, and I am getting a new pc soo but I often procrastinate on switching operating systems.

Is The 69 Ferrari 312 Rear Wing Texture Changeable?

12 Aug 2020

I've lifted the Ferrari 312 from the original 1969 mod and am using it in a non-mod carset.  Two AI are assigned to this car, but they are supposed to have different signage on the rear wing.  As the Ferrari rear wing was plain red, I tried to assign a differently named rear wing mip to each car replacing the "ferwing" mip in the AI 3dos with uniquely named mips--i.e. "barwing" and "lawwing."  No dice.  The rear wings on the two cars defaulted to the original red.  I was able to get one of the two wings to appear (on both cars) by renaming one of the new mips "ferwing" but that only changes the default to a new default.  That method doesn't allow for unique rear wings on different cars.

I also borrowed the Brabham BT26 from the same mod and have no issues using different rear wing mips, so there's something in the ferrari .dat file that I'm missing.

Here's a screenshot showing the two cars with the same rear wing despite having different mips assigned to them.  The trailing Ferrari has the correct rear wing.  The car in the foreground does not--it needs to be yellow.  I can use a distinct "fbody" mip for each car with no problem, but the rear wing always default to whatever  the "ferwing" mip is.

Is there a workaround for this issue?

Thank you for any advice!

Installed Tracks Work Well But In Gem+ Season Manager They Appear As *not Installed*

08 Aug 2020

I have a problem:
in many seasons created by myself in GEM+ several tracks appear as *not installed' in the respective season.ini displayed in the GEM+ season manager. This shows up with many tracks (very often tracks like kyalami68, silver2, nurburg68, brands68 but also specifically designed tracks like the new Monza67, Monza69, Spa67, Watkins Glen 71 and so on). Nevertheless the tracks work well in the GPL simulator. Furthermore in some seasons these tracks appear properly in others they show up the *not installed* sign posting.
My most current exemple is the recently released Monza67 track by Ginetto et al. The track works well in 67 historic mod (v. 02, off-line mod) with one exeption: the recording of my hot laps in the "fastest laps" menue is not correct. The best lap times are recorded and displayed but they do not appear under "Monza67" but the track is labelled "Kyalami" (and other tracks showing the sign posting *not installed* are also displayed as "Kyalami").
Can anybody help me to fix this issue. What's wrong?
