I have 2 problem tracks that I need to sort out to complete total rank.

1...Speed Valley....Loads but when I press escape and enter to return to the pits I just get CTD. I have tried all rasters without success.

2...Loudon....Just won't load. I have tried renaming the dat from nwengland to loudon but it just doesn't work, I might be overlooking something.

I can't see where you'd have a problem with spdvalley but you could try this: Attached File  spdvalley_groove.zip   622bytes   2 downloads


Don't know on nwenglnd...... don't rename the files as it won't work with the season.ini and folder. Have you tried the addons? BTW, the folder and dat should be called nwenglnd (without the "a")

Speed Valley just acted wierd for some reason, if I crashed at certain points the game would join me and CTD as well, I could do 15 laps without a drama but whenever I pressed escape it just CTD as well. Pedro has sent me his folder but I will try the groove file first just out of curiosity.

Loudon....Just couldn't sort it, tried it without the add ons, tried it with the add ons, had the files as nwenglnd and as loudon, also tried to load it with different cars and rasters, don't know, it just didn't like my computer. Achim has sent me his folder so I will try it when I get back home later on.

Once I get these tracks working I will finally have a total rank. Thanks to Achim, Pedro, Frenchy, Dangermouse and of course Bill. Also many other people who offered to help with tracks that were a problem.

The tracks folder \gpl\tracks\nwenglnd holds the oval track.  This track is one of the ones that are from an older Papyrus NASCAR game.  

The tracks folder called \gpl\tracks\loudon holds the road track that incorporates part of that same oval and is an add-on track available at http://gpltd.bcsims.com/

It sounds like you're mixing up the two.  I'm not sure why you renamed the folder, but I'd recommend starting all over with new downloads and installations of the tracks.

Hi Craig

RE: Speed Valley, there is an issue with this track and CTD's I experienced several frustrations trying to get a reasonable laptime there, always pushing to go that little bit faster and then crashing and losing my times for that session when the inevitable CTD occured.

Patience and just the right amount of speed is the key there.

Let us know if the groove zip DM attached helps any, don't remember seeing that before

Bob...Yes I was mixing the 2 of them up but the roadcourse still would not load until I got the folder from Achim, didn't need it for total Rank in the end but had a bit of a blast there anyway.

Larko...I ended up using Pedro's folder, still had some issues even after I copied the groove file over, the only way I could save a replay was to have a practice session with the AI and accelerate time to the end of the session once I was happy with my times, I was also carefull not to crash just in case.

If you read the readme you'll find manual install instructions, here are the relevant lines:

Quote

General Info:
-------------
if the install fails, add the usual way...  205 miles is 126 laps.

create folder in \sierra\gpl\tracks called loudon

unzip all files int archive to \sierra\gpl\tracks\loudon folder

edit \sierra\seasons\67season.ini and \sierra\seasons\gp.ini by adding the following

[EventXX]
name=Loudon Grand Prix
shortname=Loudon
trackDirectory=loudon
month=6
day=10
numberOfLaps=126
startingGrid=4

Dont forget to increment the numEvents=XX line at the top of each... and make sure the XX's agree.
