How To Determine Grade Of Gpl Track (In Order To Take A Virtual Bicycle Ride On A Gpl Track)

08 Aug 2020

I can take a virtual bike ride on a GPL track using my bike trainer as follows:
1. make a video of driving around a GPL track at the speed I'd ride around it on my bike
2. ride on my bike trainer while watching the video

(By bike trainer, I mean a regular bicycle mounted on a device that applies friction to the back wheel, e.g. https://fitnessandfr...h-road-bike.jpg)

To make this more realistic I want to input the grade of the road into my bike trainer, so it applies more friction when I'm going up a hill.  Is there a way to extract the slope of a GPL track so I can input it into my bike trainer?

Ea Sports F1 2001 On A Windows 8?

Yesterday, 09:00 AM

Posted by Elijahroberson in I Wanna talk about other Sims or Games
Yesterday I was cleaning out my old computer desk when I came across a copy of F1 2000 and F1 2001 buried within the depths of the desk. I had been looking for these for some time and was hoping they would still work as these games were newer than some Papy games I can run on my pc without any patches. Unfortunately, F1 2001 did not. I launched the autorun, ran the configuration program, and when I launched the game all I was met with was a minute of my cursor loading. Nothing ever actually popped up other than the admin approval window. I then tried running it in a Windows XP, and Windows 98 compatibility mode, yet that didn't change anything either. I don't think compatibility modes have ever actually helped me when I needed them. With no online patches for more modern OSs, I am pretty much out of luck. Does anyone have any idea how to get this game running on Windows 8? I know 8 is outdated, and I am getting a new pc soo but I often procrastinate on switching operating systems.

Installed Tracks Work Well But In Gem+ Season Manager They Appear As *not Installed*

08 Aug 2020

I have a problem:
in many seasons created by myself in GEM+ several tracks appear as *not installed' in the respective season.ini displayed in the GEM+ season manager. This shows up with many tracks (very often tracks like kyalami68, silver2, nurburg68, brands68 but also specifically designed tracks like the new Monza67, Monza69, Spa67, Watkins Glen 71 and so on). Nevertheless the tracks work well in the GPL simulator. Furthermore in some seasons these tracks appear properly in others they show up the *not installed* sign posting.
My most current exemple is the recently released Monza67 track by Ginetto et al. The track works well in 67 historic mod (v. 02, off-line mod) with one exeption: the recording of my hot laps in the "fastest laps" menue is not correct. The best lap times are recorded and displayed but they do not appear under "Monza67" but the track is labelled "Kyalami" (and other tracks showing the sign posting *not installed* are also displayed as "Kyalami").
Can anybody help me to fix this issue. What's wrong?

1969X Wing Angles. Help Needed.

08 Aug 2020

Posted by Tobodestroyer2020 in GPL-Setups/Replays

I've started to dabble with the 69X cars but I'm at a loss as to how to set the wing angles. All I've done so far is a race at Montjuich against the AI in the McLaren M9A. Probably not the greatest choice of car but you have to start somewhere. I set front and rear wings to 1.5deg but this was purely a guess. Where can I find help regarding how to set them up?

Thanks in advance

Monza 1000Km - Track Update

06 Aug 2020

Posted by gliebzeit in GPL-Track Addons
All of these updates to this track were inspired by the monza67 track project.  There are some unique objects/textures that I was unable to make or position correctly.  This is because I did not have the ability to change or add them to the way the basic track was constructed - different from the monza67 track.  These updates are not definitive, as they most certainly can be improved.

Thanks for allowing use of these updates from your previous work, Ginetto.
Most textures are from Thomas L├Ąchele or derived from them.
Thanks to Denis for his help in testing these updates, for providing feedback and for making better textures for some of the adverts... and also for the files in the low-res_textures_mnz1000k sub-folder.

There are Lo-FB and Med-FB versions of mnz1000k.3do in a sub-folder, if needed for slower computers.

Please drop these files in an already Installed Track folder.  These archives DO NOT contain any track, driver or record ini files.
