As some of you already know, there are plans to have a series of online races using the LoG mod.  However, Stefan and I have been testing the mod using his server with some problems.

Specifically, all 10 cars can be used if using Direct IP to join the server.  However, if using IGOR, only the first seven slot cars will start GPL.  The last three slots, the Ferrari 330, the Matra MS80, and the McLaren M8F if selected in IGOR won't start GPL.  These three cars show in the IGOR list OK.

What would cause this?

We suspect there is a setting somewhere that specifies the number of cars that IGOR will use when starting GPL.

LoPeN noticed this problem Thursday night with the 66CANAM mod. The long names for cars don't work in iGOR. This problem is being worked on.
I noticed some unusual traffic on Hauls2. I figured something was going on.

Remember that Phil Flack offered his help for any iGOR problem you might have.
If you or Lou are already in contact with him, don't consider this :)

Same seems to be with 67X,
in Funliga wednesday race, we had troubles joining with some cars,
e.g. the Ferrari 312 and McLaren it was not possible to join/host via iGOR with any BRM no problem....
via IP all could join the server!

in the iGOR window at the bottom left, there came an error message about "faulty request"

EDIT

Just tried to join the 66s GPLRACER server with a MCLaren with same "faulty request"

Have we not had this problem with any of the mods that have more than seven cars?  The '55 Mod has nine cars for example, but I don't recall anyone complaining about it.

My limited understanding of how GEM+, IGOR, and GPL relate to each other is that GEM+ modifies the GPL .ini files based on the settings you select before starting GPL or going to IGOR.  GEM+ itself does not pass any information directly to GPL.  I suspect that IGOR works the same...it modifies certain .ini files before starting GPL when you join an online race.

The IGOR.ini file doesn't seem to have any settings that would prevent use of more than seven cars except there is the line:

HostChassisAllowances = 1 1 1 1 1 1 1

This has seven "ones".  I've tried editing this manually to ten "ones", but IGOR seems to change it back to seven.

The player .ini file has this line:

team = X where X is the car slot that was last used by GPL and which will be used on GPL start up.

Perhaps IGOR is not properly saving the team = line ???

I will host a 55 test server with 60fpsV2newmod now, so we can try ;)

IMO it must be something wrong with the racelist server as all works fine when you join via IP...

EDIT

same faulty request here when I try to join with the 625

Here too, both Mercedes W196 SL and Fezza 625, "request was faulty" error and no go for GPL.
Other slots  worked fine

Think we're narrowing down the issue...IGOR isn't passing the slot number for slots more than seven cars...apparently is happening with all mods.  :(

More testing has revealed that the track and car slot number are saved by IGOR in the player.ini file, not the mod player .ini file.  For car slots greater than seven cars, IGOR isn't saving the data and GPL won't start.

Here, after using MOD 55 in iGOR with one of the first 7 slots, the ini modified is plac55.ini while player.ini still has the old date.

It must be an iGOR racelist server issue, it has nothing to do with clients or hosts!

It does indeed look like it's the number cars causing this problem in iGOR. I put Hauls2 to run the 67F2 mod. The eighth car on don't work.

ok.  Since this isnt just a random LoPeN occurrence, I will get with Uwe to see if we can work it out.  There was a setting we had to change to be able to host iGOR at all.  Perhaps that setting is more critical than just changing the number from 7 to 20...

So that means that our scheduled event won't also not work when we use the full mods instead of the LoG mod when we want to use cars that use a slot above 7, doesn't it?

For now yes, Stefan.

I put in contact Lou, Lee and Phil. Let's hope that together they will find a solution.

Thx for the feedback Ginetto.

Update: The iGOR >7 car slots bug is fixed now!

I have just tested the 1966 (full mod) Eagle T1 Weslake V12 3lt car  (which has the "c10" slot) trying to join the GPLRACER server hosting 1966 mod at East London track in iGOR and GPL does not start when i hit the "Join" button in iGOR.
BUT when I go to GEM+, choose my 1966 mod player, East London track and the 1966 Eagle T1 Weslake V12 3lt car and start GPL directly via IP (Multiplayer) I can join on the GPLRACER 1966 mod server.


I have also tested hosting the Legends of GPL (LoG) mod again on iGOR.
For hosting on iGOR I have to use one car of the original 7 slots or I won`t be able to host at all.
I used the 1966 CanAm Lola T70 MkII as player car for hosting the LoG mod.

Then clients can join via iGOR with any car of the LoG mod, expet these cars:
- 1967 GT, Ferrari 330/P4 (LoG mod)
- 1969 F1, Matra MS80 (LoG mod)
- 1971 CanAm, McLaren M8F (LoG mod)
-> with above cars you can not join via iGOR, but directly via IP

1967 F1, Brabham BT24 (LoG mod)
-> with this car you can join via iGOR and IP, but you get a CTD every time you exit the track
-> Lee is having a look into this.



Sum up:
As long as there is no updated iGOR version hosted that supports more than 7 slots of cars (GPL originally only had 7 cars) you can only join on iGOR with cars of any GPL mod that use the slot 1-7. If you want to join a server with a car that uses a slot higher 7 you can only join on the server directly via IP in multiplayer of GPL and not via iGOR.

When you are a server admin you have to chosse a "player" car for hosting that is of one of the 1-7 slots. If not you won`t be able to host.
