Thanks for explaining. The bigger flags are easier to notice now. Is the inverted Scottish flag from where you come from?

Well, the blue flag problem is solved. Now they wave the yellow flag.  :)

I get that too. With me they hold the yellow flag, but don't wave it. :think:

Maybe that explains all the yellow flags in my screenshots.

I have seen yellow flags (not waving) in a crash and after that they wave white flags (which should be yellow)...I guess the CoC's are telling the flagman the wrong instructions :D As far as I know a white flag for a slowing car is never waved...

To be safe tonight in a leaguerace I will revert to my old flagmen...hope it will be figured out what is wrong, because graphically it looks very good...

I see. Gammaworx, FYI it seems waved yellow flags are showing white (and white flags are never waved AFAIK, only shown for slow cars). And blue flags seem to be showing as yellow/white. Have not tested it extensively, but in a few pick up races this happened...

Hope it will be figured out ;)

What is your GPLversion US, English, French, German? ...i only tested the US version as it's the only one i have :think: ....you did save you original objects file right?

the "objects.dat" file is the "orignal" so it should control the flag selection call ...i basicly just enlaged the srbs and did new graphics to match the flag color of each frames in the sequence

Yellow Flag
This is shown to drivers to warn them to slow down and not to over take other cars because there is a dangerous situation ahead.

White Flag
This flag warns drivers of slow moving vehicles on the track like safety cars.

Green Flag
This flag means the track has been cleared of any dangers and drivers can proceed at racing speeds.

Blue Flag
This flag is shown to drivers when a faster driver is approaching them and trying to over take. Only lapped cars have to give way to a faster driver.

I restored my original objs folder and reinstalled the update minus the dat file, but I still get the same
flag calls as before.

Here is the same crash with the old flagmen from my original objs folder :

thats odd ...with the original reinstalled, you get a green flag at the crash section and yellow after ???
i'm going to check the origin of the Objects .dat file i loaded it with and the file names ,it may be the one jacksellars had posted at his site is different some how???

Sorry Gamma , I posted the original flagmen in the same order as I did earlier in the topic post #29.
The yellow flag is at the flagman above the crash. My screenies at post #29 show the white flag above
the crash and yellow at the crash.

Here is a crash I staged at Monza69 with the 69Xtra cars at the Parabolica, It is a short clip, but
if you ride onboard Jackie Oliver's car you get to pass thru the yellow & back to green flagmen.

The replay also brings up another problem with the 69Xtra Mod in regards to "blue/green" sand
getting kicked up when cars go off track.There is discussion here at post #50

I have the US version of GPL installed.  I also get the "odd flagman" behaviour.  If I revert back to the original objs folder.... all is correct again.
