..I have lost the install files for this great mod and would like to find them again and install them in my main GPL folder.

Do you know where they can be found?

Alan, you are posting in the F2 MOD release thread! :rolleyes:

Just go to the first post and read it all very well. ;)

Thanks all, The mod in question is not the 67 F2 but the 66 F2 and F3. Different cars (my favourite being the Alpine A270) different drivers different physics released as a beta. If you are saying that the mod team abandoned 66 in favour of 67; ok.

Ah so it was just a car set, without its own physics.
I cannot help you with that since I never heard of it, sorry. :wave:

I think Alan refers to the two F2 and F3 carsets trying to depict some 1966 season races Those carsets have their own physics (F3 carset limited to 4 gears)and drivers names individual period skins, and track season.ini where they really raced.
They have also their own team info layout and races programs
Those mods where released not long before the true 67F2 mod, I think.


  Alan, I have those carsets installed; The exe names are  gpl65d.exe for the F2 and gpl65g.exe for the F3 . There must be a download link somewhere.

Apart the carsets on a separate Gpl install, I think I have all the files on a dedicated folder on another HDD. I will check and when I find them, will upload the files.

Thanks Needforspeed, I was beginning to feel I was going insane.  It's a shame this mod was not developed further, the physics are good but the cars appearances are all the same baring colours. I'll just keep it as a separate install then, just takes up so much space duplicating tracks.

Thanks everybody for your patience.

Alan, post edited; Just look at it.

Maybe by performing the search function , you' ll find the exe somewhere in your installs .

The cars folder is named 1966F2 but the base was the seven original GPL car names folders with the modified 3DO used for the67F2 carset, but with realistic police individual skins.

Some help to those who are struggling: I run adblock so phantom download buttons are no issue, and using 4shared I clicked Signup, where I entered some nonsense, but it let me past to download the file. I saved the gpl folder into C:\SIERRA\gpl2, so as not to interefere with the main install. Then I copied the gpl.exe from the main install into the new folder. Using GEM I added this new gpl.exe into the installs. Now it is a case of creating two players one for F3, and one for F2, and adding the two carsets(GPL65FD/G). For the F2 tick patch carset for sound, and advance trainer, for F3 carsound plus basic trainer. There are also a couple of french championship seasons in the seasons folder, along with the two including non-championships.

With it installed it looks and especially sounds great! These slower cars make the racing line so important, and in F3 the quickest line does often not use the entire track. The long straights are hard, as the pack is quickly at maximum speed, so impossible to pass until the breaking zone, which is very short.

Fantastic job ED76 and those who helped you, hopefully more people can install and enjoy this fun little mod.

AnD I remeMber now, Ed76, the maker says that installation on a separate install is needed to avoid conflicts

Thanks Needforspeed,
I note that it came with a trojan, and my install shows, a whole lot of random GPL content not related to the mod itself. Perhaps this conversation will spark an interest in taking the mod further as part of a career path as suggested by Ed76. The physics are brilliant to drive even if the car shells appear all the same. Reading the topic again, and even if the download links worked, it's too risky to install in the main GPL, sadly :bigcry2:  Thanks for all your help.
