Hi all,

In my GPL 1966-mod, the mirrors show the sky or road surface (not sure which one). It is as if they point up or downwards, making them unusable.

I installed the GPL 2004-demo in a seperate install. Then patched it with GPL Shift 0.7.3.2. to get my shifter working. Then installed the GPL 1.3 patch and then installed the 66 mod. I think the problem occured after having installed either GPL Shift or the GPL 1.3 Patch.

I have uploaded a short replay to Youtube to illustrate the issue here: https://www.youtube....h?v=uVN2gSeVoX0

I already found that this is reported with nvidia cards under Open GL. However I run D3D and have an ATI R9 200 series. I run Windows 10.

My 65-install does not have this issue.

Any ideas?

Thanks,

Tom

Hello TomFitch

Have you tried this tip already?

Mirrors pointed up, upside down or to one side of the track
1- This happens in OpenGL (not in D3D) with the latest nVidia drivers (after about 52.16) which work fine but the buffer flipping mode needs to be set to block transfer. This is no longer the default in the 52.16 drivers.  Control Panel > Display > Settings > Advanced > your card tab > OpenGL > Buffer Flipping Mode > use block transfer.

Hello Stefan,

That is indeed the info I found after some looking. I tried to alter the settings as proposed in said post. However, seems like Windows 10 has altered, read reduced to almost nothing, the settings page for Display. I don't find an advanced tab anymore e.g. The only tab I find is "Graphic processor properties" or something along those lines but takes me straigh to a Device Manage-like environment. With no option to change settings.

I'll delf into it a bit more though.

Thanks for the feedback.

Tom

Do you have the latest 66 mod?

You need 1966_Mod_v1.1 + 1966_Mod_PATCH_v2.0

I am having no issues, but out of curiosity, what changed in the 66 mod ver 1 to ver 1.1 ?  I am running  1966_Mod_v1.0 + 1966_Mod_PATCH_v2.0 ... what was the improvement?

As long as you don't race online with 60fpsV2newmod, no problem...

Tom you should install GEM+ and use the latest GPLshift 0.79.
For an AMD GPU is OpenGLV2 the best rasterizer to use as this is up to date.
GPL uses very old and obsolete DX7...

Does anyone have a link?

Thanks is advance,

Tom
