With alls the sims on the PC market now, and all the tracks they have, I think if we want the installer a tool to get newcomers interested in GPL, it needs at least the 11 Original tracks . Bugatti wld replace Rouen. So for a short time , they ' ll have more tracks to tests, and more time spent on the asphalt, before they put an appreciation on GPL.

If Stefan wouldn't mind he may would like to create an installation walk through adopted for this demo and GEM/iGor ...
Sure I will do.
I can also create a domain and host the new demo.
Bernd, I haven't forgoten about the other two domains we talked about.
A demo with all 11 GPL tracks would be great. But we have to be sure that we do not get into legal rights problems.
This is also mentioned here:
Let's Try To Get Gpl Available On "good Old Games
With all respect, we must be sure that it's OK to have a demo containing the 11 original tracks but this would be no demo or? This would be GPL as a freeware so I would not be sure that this is legal. Like Stefan and others have said here and at other threads, I'm not sure about this.
Based on the GPLPS Installer 1.08 I have created an installer which will install only Watkins Glen and Monza. Am I right that Monza had been part of a Sierra GPL demo or was it Mosport? We could however add another track to the demo.
I need to rework the dialog text so that it's not the GPLPS Installer but the GPL Demo 2016 Installer. And I need to create the new player dialog so that I can create a basic player.ini with at least the right resolution set as well as the right default mode like Int Short as well as standard details and car.
Let me think about this
