Rich...That's odd. the bars are gone, but you don't seem to be seeing anymore top and bottom?

It's considerably more than I was getting before, the Lotus mirrors could just about be brought into view by moving the seat back and down, could just about see the top of the tacho. The Brabham was unraceable, couldn't see the mirrors at all even with the view adjusted fully back and down....no dials at all although I soon got used to shifting gear by ear ;). This patch is so useful, gets some of the cockpit centre mirrors in the GT mod into view too :)

It would be great to be able to set Gem with another 10 or 20 degrees FOV as the 120 degrees maximum isn't quite right, but the view in GPL is surprisingly close to the view I get with Assetto Corsa which has full triple screen support and even calculates a realistic FOV based on screen size, angles, and the distance from the viewer.

Great patch! Works like a charm :)
Only thing I'd ask if it's possible to improve is the message board: every time I get the "Press esc to get back to pits" writing, it flashes for a sec with a long, slim black bar under it and then both disappear after a blink of an eye. :)

good job lee. Our great game every day is better and better and better. In my country we said of the best argentinian crooner ( Gardel) "every day sings better". I said Every day with gpl we play better. a big regard of the end of the world. :bowdown2: :bravo:

Wow - this makes a huge difference.... although I'm torn as the letterbox is iconic to GPL. Never look back, nice job Lee.
