Entering Pits Randomly Triggers Permanent Lag During Online Play

Today, 02:15 AM

Posted by Millennium in GPL-"Help! I'm having trouble with..."
This only happens during online races and I can't figure out what's causing it.
It's not lag on the entire server, but only on my end.

1. I drive some laps (without any peformance problems).
2. I use Esc + Enter to return to the pits.
3. On the TV screen I can watch other drivers without much lag.
4. I return to the track, game is suddenly capped at 32 fps and freezes every 5 or 6 seconds.
5. Around the freezes all the other opponents briefly dissapear.

At that point the lag becomes permanent, but I'm the only one on the server who has it. The other drivers don't have the lag.
The only 'fix' is to exit the server and rejoin. Sometimes I have to exit the game as well because I get a timed out message when trying to reconnect.  

As soon as I rejoin the 36 fps is restored and the lag is gone. (untill it gets triggered again)

(In offline races against the AI I can not reproduce this "32 fps" bug.)

Uploading Replays

Today, 01:58 AM


Is there a guide somewhere explaining how to upload replays from GPL? I found a very old thread in SRMZ but all the links suggested there are defunct.

New Gpl Install Works Fine, Except That All The Text Is Unreadable

Yesterday, 07:32 PM

When I copied a linux GPL install from my PC to my laptop everything worked fine except that all the text was unreadable.  It seemed to be rendered incorrectly.  I could play GPL perfectly well so long as I remembered where to click without reading the text.  I've seen this happen before, but I don't remember the exact circumstances, I just had to reinstall everything.  Has anyone else come across this problem?  I saw somewhere on this forum that an antialiasing problem can cause the text to be distorted.

Monacane Is A No Go!

Yesterday, 02:44 PM

I have tried and tried but I cannot get this track to install. There are 1151 items in the Monaco folder, but Monacane consistently tells me that components are missing. Yes, I started with the original track installed and upgraded to Rocks V2. Then I run the Monacane installer and it consistently tells me something is missing but it doesn't tell me what that is. Am I missing something? Overlooking a step? What.....???

Thanks in advance,

Gpl, Win 10, And Native Resolution.

Yesterday, 06:01 AM

A little over a week ago, I reinstalled GPL after a few years of hiatus. Much to my delight, I found that it ran very well on Win 10 at my pc's native resolution of 1920 X 1080. Last Friday, I encountered some processor trouble that corrupted a raid array that I was using. I got that sorted, okay, doing away with the raid array. After reinstalling Windows, various programs, and drivers, I reinstalled GPL.This time it didn't offer native resolution as a choice. The closest was 1280 X 1024. Any res other than 640 X 480 showed the driving position as down and to the right. I went around and around, trying to discover what had changed to cause this. Finally, I came up with an answer. In Win settings/display/scale and layout, I had the setting at 125% to help with increasing the size of text. Resetting it to 100% returned the choice of my pc's native resolution. The driving position properly centered again. I hope this helps someone else with a similar problem.
