Gpl Tracksounds V2.00
Posted May 19 2017 - 06:54 AM
I'm like Greg and my plate is already full so someone here at SRMZ will have to step up to get sounds and make a .ini file for TrackSounds to broadcast stage/pace notes. So far, no one seems interested in doing that.

An audio track describing a track, could be played through a drivers earplugs. So no problem anticipated there, for the realism police.

Just got around to testing this. Unfortunately it doesn't work for me. As soon as I start GPL I get the "Deactivated" sound.
I have tried the following all with the same result.
- Starting GPL with GEM+2 (as per your notes, I wasn't surprised it didn't work).
- Tried running gpl.exe directly for various mods, including 1955 (gplc55.exe).
- Turned off all other options (Pribluda, head movement, no letterbox).
- My gpl.exe has the 4gb patch so I tried reverting to the previous gpl.exe and rebuilding the mod executables
I am running on Windows 10 (recently rebuilt, so up to date). I guess there is some incompatibility. Can you suggest anything else to try?

If you're getting the "Deactivated" sound as soon as you start GPL, then the program itself was running so it isn't a Visual Basic issue.
The only time we testers saw this issue was when GEM+ was used to start GPL. If the GPL .exe was started directly, then TrackSounds worked OK. Apparently, that doesn't work for you.
Probably most or our testers, including me, are still using Windows 7 so we don't have a way to troubleshoot Windows 10.

I tried running as administrator. Setting Windows compatability (tried windows 7 & 8). Neither worked. I updated my Creative Sound Blaster drivers and rebooted and it worked ONCE (and once only). Have not figured out what happened. Tried rebooting again and couldn't repeat it. Following further testing, I'm 99% sure that updating the drivers did not fix anything
Having heard it work once, I tried side stepping the problem. If starting GPL kills TrackSound try changing the sequence. So now I have got it working by
- Start GPL (works for me either straight from the executable or from GEM+2)
- Switch back to Windows (alt-Tab) and start TrackSounds
- Switch back to GPL.
Tested with Monaco and I think everything played correctly. I will do some more testing and post a further update if i spot any further pattern to the situation.
A couple of updates above in bold.

I see you are you using a SoundBlaster card. I did several years ago too and had nothing but trouble with it...sounds were often scratchy. I'm using the motherboard sound now with no problem whatsoever.

In any case I have a working solution. Thanks again Lee for all your work on GPL.

You can record it with an external program.
This could be useful for pace notes.
Edit: Seems like they have changed their website. Now there is an annoying melody in the background.
This has not been in the past.

Thx! I haven`t tested the program yet, but it looks interesting.
There are Targa pace notes available for rFactor created by 6e66o: http://www.virtualr....enotes-released
They could be handy when someone should pick up the big task to create them for GPL.
I would like to try to create them for the GPL Targa but I just don`t have enough time atm.
I had already posted this at this thread:
Targa Florio Pace Notes?
