Legends Of Gpl Mod Online Tests
Posted Oct 26 2018 - 05:29 PM
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.

I noticed some unusual traffic on Hauls2. I figured something was going on.

If you or Lou are already in contact with him, don't consider this

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

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 ???

IMO it must be something wrong with the racelist server as all works fine when you join via IP...
same faulty request here when I try to join with the 625

Other slots worked fine

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.

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

Good luck Lou, Lee, Phil and all others involved to get it back working in full glory again!

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.
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.
