I'm having problems with loading car setups in my game. When I download setups most of them work but some don't. When they don't work the game just reverts to the 'default' setup.

Upon further inspection I noticed that all the setup files that don't work are 272 bytes in size, when I look in the properties of the file.
My own setups, and most of the downloaded setups are all 264 bytes in size and they work fine.

Where does this difference come from?

The 272 byte setups are long format which is used by all of the mods and the 1967 1.3 patch.  These will not load into standard GPL 1.2  
The 264 byte setup format is what GPL originally shipped with.  These can be loaded by all versions of GPL.

You have 2 options:

1: Install the GPL 1.3 patch which will allow you to run both types - http://srmz.net/inde...?showtopic=4875
or
2: Convert the setups to short format (264 byte) with this tool - http://srmz.net/inde...hl=gplsetupconv

Thanks, that is exactly what I was looking for!

I'll use the converter for now. :)
