Hello guys.

I have a strange problem on one of my servers.

When I start GPL on my server via GEM+ set to Training, mod 65 and track Monza, GPL automatically bypasses the start menu screen and hosts a track Aintree.
Normally GPL should start and stop at the start screen where you can chosse Training, Race, Mutliplayer or Championship.
But strangely GPL automatically bypasses that screen/ menu. But I need to choose Multiplayer to host so that the drivers can join directly via IP as long as the iGOR race list is down.

I persume that there is some setting somewhere in an .ini file. But I can`t find anything in any file.
The only bypass setting is in the iGOR.ini but it is set to "HostbypassMulti = 0". And I think GPL does not read the iGOR.ini when it is starting.

On my 2nd server and on my race PC I don`t have the problem. When I start GPL it stops at the GPL start screen and I can chosse between Training, Race, Multiplayer, ...

Any ideas?

Stefan

The only idea I have is that some other program is active when GPL starts, but that’s somewhat of a wild guess. I know that if I start GPL, then before the GPL main screen comes up, I close a Word or Excel file GPL does odd things.

In the core.ini look for the following:  

[ SERVER ]
max_car_class = 0                         ; 0=GP, 1=Fortgeschritten, 2=Anfänger
min_car_class = 2                         ; 0=GP, 1=Fortgeschritten, 2=Anfänger
auto_export_standings = 1                 ; Auto export if launched?
dedicated = 0                             ; Unattended - run server.ini races
launch = 0                                ; Run GPL as a mp server
max_latency = 500.0                       ; Seconds. Set to 0.0 to disable
password =                                ; [access][/[boss]][=f.last]
repeat = 0                                ; If dedicated, repeat (0=forever)


Be sure dedicated = 0  and launch= 0
