Jim Clark And The Mysterious Pit Stop

Yesterday, 02:40 PM

Here's something that I've never seen before and didn't know could happen in GPL...

Running the 65 Mod at Watkins Glen, I was running 4th late in the race when I noticed Clark had dropped out of the lead. Great! I'm on for a podium. But then... last few laps, suddenly Clark is behind me and closing rapidly. Not many laps left, and I beat him by 2 seconds.

OK, so I go back and look at the replay as I'm curious. See Clark slow down on the back of the circuit, run slowly round to the pits, stop right at the far end of the pit lane, then after about 10s off he goes at full speed to the end of the race. Now, I've seen the AI run low on fuel and have to stop for a top-up, but in this case Spence in the other Lotus didn't have any trouble.

Only thing I can think of is maybe Clark got a fuel leak and stopped to top up (as AI refuelling is known behaviour), or can the AI get a problem that is fixable in the pits? Maybe it happens in other races from time to time but I've never noticed before?

Unable To Figure This Issue Out

02 Apr 2020

I recently had to re-install windows 10 64 bit. most everything is good the only problem I'm having since getting my GPL back up and running is this. It seems that some files that I download are acting strange. compressed or some zip files wont open like I expect them to. example ;  the 55 mod track updates come to my computer as encrypted file that I can not open, and the nassau track that is wonderful, but that file is encrypted as well.  Any ideas what I should be looking at?  I have the latest version of WinZip. Just bought it.  Please any ideas.

Grand Prix World- Help

29 Mar 2020

Posted by twinpotter in I Wanna talk about other Sims or Games
Anybody play this game Grand Prix World. Management game from Microprose 1998/99.

https://en.m.wikiped...rand_Prix_World

I've reinstalled the game but would like to be realistic. Jacque Villeneuve is not in the game and replaced by John Newhouse, because Jacque wouldn't allow the licencing of his name.

I've changed to his name inside the game but can't change to his driver photo. I've searched online and tried to look inside the dir files, to see if I could change it myself, but can't find a way to do it. I found a link on File planet for the Villeneuve patch fix, but that link is dead.

So can anybody help and provide me the file? Apologies for the off topic!
