@ginetto: Thank you! I will point the guys to your post who are currently working to get iGOR (and GPLRank) back.
The iGOR source code would be nice to have. ;)

@Bob and Cockie: Thx for the info. Recently I have already tried to set all in GEM+, then click on VROC (green button). VROC started, but I could not get it to host. I think I will need to have a deeper look into it. In case it fails again I will come back to you.

the testing of iGor is ongoing.
1. the server seems operatonal
2. i've launched iGor and connected
3. i've setup a test race via iGor and i "thinK" its good.

4. wait! why only "think" ??  well, because from my win10 racing PC, i can't launch iGor! (?) i'm stumped as to why.
the message i get is:  Unable to locate any race list servers - check iGor.ini

i don't even see the iGor window.. just the error message.

Great news! I guess you changed the ip of the igor.ini according to the new host, isn't it?

Marcos.

correct Marcos... changed both my server igor.ini and racing pc igor.ini to new IP.... still get same error message.
we have another test coming in about an hour, from another testor, see if he can connect, join, host.  if so, then its JUST me - and maybe a reinstall of GEM on my end. but i looked at GEM pointer to iGor path, and it is correct.

any other ideas are welcome

Gents.... i believe we have iGor back... due in no small part to several longtime members of the GPL community.

go to your gplSecrets (folder)
find the iGor.ini (file)
the line under
[ RaceListServers ]
IP = gplrank.info

change it to:
[ RaceListServers ]
IP    = igor.gplrank.info


CORRECTION:
Dave Stanley of NRTservers.com is now hosting!


Lou Magyar was highly instrumental in making it happen - and no doubt helping with learning how to set up a backup system.
also thanks to Uwe Schuerkamp... Christoph Frick.. Ginetto... Phil Flack...ZZ Busch...Stefan Roess and no doubt others working behind the scene.
people like Bill Cooper that make THIS forum available, and not least Brian Wong - who has been hosting iGor and gplRank for years- free of charge!

as for gplRank.. i am not sure its status. i know it is also in plans to retrieve, but some of the more critical data needed is on BW's server and as yet can't be retrieved til he gets a backup of what he had.
its complicated, and could be 2 weeks yet, but fear not ~

these people deserve your thanks.

A tip of the hat to all involved in this solution.  Never met a single one of them face-to-face but they are, nonetheless, my treasured amigos.
