Setups will be very useful - I have a standard setup saved at Adelaide (first track in my list) that I copy to every new track then just tweak the gears.  Having proper setups per track would be far better :thumbup:
I'm not sure what you're thinking, but the having the World Records showing and the setups is unrelated.  

There was/is a site that had 67FD, F2 etc WRs and the setups were availalbe there too - see http://gplrank.schue...de/jcindex.html  That kind of site ror all the mods would be great, but perhaps too much work.

Or are you talking about the 65s setups compilation in Keith's signature?

All mod setups will be available if people upload them ;)

Hopefully we'll be able to get the other project working soon - just look at the greyed out button ;)
The only greyed out button I could find at the track database was the setups button so I figured that was the other project Keith was referring to.  :confused:

In my defense, it was very early here when I read it  :ermm:

Sorry ntoxcated.  I'm the thicky.  All I had to do was look at what dangermouse was referring to. :shock:

That'll be a great feature to be able to find setups that way!  Great idea Keith!

Dunno if this has already been pointed out, but currently Nurbnite has a graphics score of 318%, quite how this is possible I don't know...

And I still think that a future development of the ratings system ought to exclude tracks with fewer than say 10 or 15 votes.

A couple of quick questions about the Track DB.

1.  Is it me, or does the track DB not work correctly when using browsers such as Safari (on Mac OS X)?


2.  On Magnus' track DB website it used to be possible to formulate a link like:

http://trackdb.d2g.c...s.asp?D=Mosport

and get a page with just Mosport.   Is there a way to achieve this with this site?  I'd like to modify our League's schedule page to link to information for each track used in a particular season (so as to ensure everybody downloads the correct version of the track...)


Thanks for this great resource!

Monty,

1. Don't know. Don't have a Mac and you're the 1st person to comment on that. Let's see if someone comes along and comments.

2. Yes. http://gpltd.bcsims....p?track=mosport
   (Where mosport = track folder name  ;)  )

Have you tried firefox v2 on the Mac OS X?


:wave:


EDIT: Have just received info that it's not just you as someone else tried safari and encountered probs but he uses firefox primarily so hadn't noticed a problem.
