A couple of questions for Greg (GLiebzeit) - if I may?

Over in another thread you posted a couple of screen shots with driver photos.
http://srmz.net/inde...showtopic=12221

Can't remember ever seeing these posted anywhere. So rather than a cheeky request for an upload, I started making my own.  Currently have two issues with Siroco Livieratos.

1) For his Greek national flag (and for Vic Preston's Kenyan flag).  Did you patch the GPL.exe as per the instructions at http://gplpp.com/ --> Other Stuff --> Your Country.  If not is there a better alternative?

Just thinking what is the best approach.  Given that GEM+ will recreate/repatch the gplcrx.exe, it needs to be done on the base gpl.exe.  But then that will propogate to all other mods - unless you have separate installs.

2) Where on earth did you manage to find a decent photo of him?  I can only find a quite recent headshot pic of him. I guess racing under the Siroco pseudonym may have something to do with it.

[Update]  Found a clip on you tube  https://youtu.be/8kIxKY2QwR0 I think that id=s him at 1:03 onwards.  But looks a different person to your version?


thanks
webfoot

webfoot, I use separate installs for each mod.  Therefore, as there is no Japanese driver in the Rally Mod, I substituted a Greek flag for the Japan flag.

Drop this flag file into your layout folder and place '15' on the line nationality =

As for Livieratos head photo, the one that I have was my 'best guess'.   ;)

Here are the driver photos that I have.  But, of course, I've made a custom driver file with references to some others cars/drivers.

Thanks again Greg.  

I guess my single install means the japanese flag won't work without losing the flag for japanese tracks.  Chile and Venezuela are better possibilities, just need to check if there would be any drivers affected.

You've saved me some time,  so I think I might spend it hunting some missing Tasman drivers :D

From the original Stratos Rocks driver list, Greg has replaced Vic Preston and Tony Fowkes.  So here are photos for them.




UPDATE
Corrected version will be posted below.

And here is my edited drivRX,ini.  The changes made to the original "Rocks" version are as follows.
  • Corrected flags for French and Finnish drivers

  • Added links to photos for each driver (I have prefixed all PBF files with "RX" for easy identification in a single GPL install)

  • Altered Siroco Livieratos to Tasos "Siroco" Livieratos.

  • Note that Livieratos' and Vic Preston's flags are still wrong.


So to use this file.
  • Back up your existing drivRX.ini in the main GPL folder

  • Copy this new version into the main GPL folder

  • Take the photo/PBF files from the 3 posts above (use the new livi.pbf)

  • Rename Greg's to add a an "RX" prefix to the filename e.g. rename ande.pbf to RXande.pbf

  • Copy all the photos into your GPL layout folder

UPDATE
Improved version posted below

Oops missed out one extra point from the installation instructions.

There is one driver with Chile as a nationality.  Jim Palmer in the Tasman 1964 mod.  I'm sure this is a mistake and he should be a New Zealander.  I have amended the install instructions with notes on what to change.  Included in v1.1 posted above
