Creating Track List
Posted Jul 08 2017 - 06:20 PM
I am hoping to learn how to create a track list so that when I'm in the 55 mod (or other era) I can have more selection of tracks, and such as that. I have some of the 1955-type tracks downloaded, but I have yet to figure out how to get them into/onto the list so that they appear in the track selection menu. Any help would be much appreciated.
Thanks for any input!
Now, I think I'm going to head off to hurl around a Ferrari 555 at Silverstone!

To remove a track, click on the + of a season, select the track you want to remove and than click on the <- arrow in the middle.
You can also make your own season, but if you do so the name of your season has to be exactly 8 characters long. (That's what I remember at least)

You will also find arrows to move the selected track up or down the list you are creating.

When you are done, click OK to go back to the main GEM+ window
then you can select your list or any other in GEM+

I hope you can get your list of favourite tracks set up easily! Good luck!

Has anyone researched/created a table/list of all the tracks the 1955 cars raced at, GP and otherwise? I would like to add as many of the tracks as possible to my upcoming 1955 "Season" I intend to create with both GP and non-GP tracks therein.
Also, do I have this right:
Once a track is downloaded, unzip it, and place the track folder within GPL's "Tracks" folder... then go to GEM and add it to the appropriate season?

This will put it by default into the 67season.ini.
Afaik the 05season.ini has all the tracks of the real season

I thought I read "somewhere" that in addition to the 1955 GP championship races, there were non-championship races as well, such as at Brands Hatch or Goodwood or wherever?
I need to go look and see what tracks appear in GPL for the 55 GP season, and see what ones remain to be added to complete the GP season. I know I need to install some still, just can't remember off hand what track(s).
All fer now!

If I remember from my memory in gem and the season section on the right you will have the the track ini's.
There are usually two for each mod or original 67.
The track ini for general track running is I think season.ini. So for 55 it is 55seasonini.
The other which I think is 55ini is for your championship.
I think I am right in this unless I have them the wrong way round and stand corrected.

I'm pretty sure I'm not installing the tracks correctly, but I'm trying to figure out what I'm doing wrong.
I have downloaded Bremgarten and Reims, unzipped, looked within the folders for each and did not see installer programs for same. So, I placed the folders within my GPL "Tracks" folder. FWIW: I took screen pictures of my current GPL "Tracks" folder as well as the track list within GEM, but I have yet to figure out how to upload photos here for sharing. (More stuff to learn.)
Anyway, the track folders for Bremgarten and Reims appear within the GPL "Tracks" folder, but do NOT appear in the GEM list (along with several other track folders I've placed inside GPL's "Tracks" folder using the same approach). So obviously, I'm not doing something right.
Once more, any input would be appreciated.

When you unzip it it should have a file with an .EXE extension; double click on that one to run the installer.
To post pictures here, just click on the button More Reply Options you see on the bottom left while you are typing the message.
A bigger window will appear for your message and at the bottom of it you will find Attach Files.
Choose the file you want

Thank you very much for your input.
I went back to the original folders for both the Bremgarten and Reims folders and looked within all folders that extracted. I found an INSTALL.exe program for Bremgarten and indeed, it is now installed.
I have examined each extracted folder (reims_horizon, reims_v1, reims_v2, reims_v2alternative) and I do not find an install application file for Reims.

A full track should have at least 9 files in its folder:
record & track.ini
maxrace, minrace, pass1&2, pit and race.lp
and a dat file named the same as the folder.
If these are present GEM should be able to find the track and you can add it to your season.ini using GEM.
Otherwise find the readme, in it you should find similar lines to these:
Next open GPL\seasons\67season.ini
Increment the number at the end of the line starting with numEvents by 1. SHould be line 4
Add the lines from the readme to the end of the file and change # to whatever the new number at the end of line 4 is.
Save and the track should show up ingame.

I downloaded Reims from this site:
Reading the Reims information at the above site carefully, it appears I only have the needed update files to the original track. So, I need to find the original track before Reims can be successfully installed.
