This is really amazing. I'm struggling a bit to install some of the great mods & patches you guys have come up with. But this makes the biggest difference to the game compared with how it was several years ago! Since i lost my GPL install with a hard drive failure & Couldn't find all I needed to put it back. Mostly advice as Race sim central had died. The BRM sounds really amazing.  Need to immprove my  BRM driving now..... What a massive improvement. Great stuff Lee.  Can't believe how much has changed since I've been away. Many Thanks!!!

edit. Loaded up Ducwolfs Ferrari sounds. Made the hair stand up on the back of my neck. Fantastic potential here!

A few years ago, I fooled around with GPLES, but just couldn't get it to sound right.  Since my eyesight is deteriorating, I am running closer to the back of the pack and sound is becoming ever more significant for my actual enjoyment factor.

I absolutely love the ducwolf sound that I have used for the Lotus 49 for a number of years; but, seeing that I had replaced my PC since the initial GPLES attempt (now triple 17" monitors), I thought I would give GPLES another go.  Wow!  GPLES changed the whole experience for me ... thank you Lee Bowden!

I continued to drive the 49 with GPLES sound - the top end speed helps me to keep up :) - until, a few days ago, I decided to try some of the other cars with GPLES sounds as well.  Then I came upon ducwolf's GPLES sound pack for the Ferrari 312 ... I am totally speechless ... I have never, ever experienced anything like that before - the sounds blend in SO beautifully and contribute to a wonderful richness that I cannot get enough of. The subtle backfiring as I approach Crowthorne bend leaves me smiling every time!
I have always known that Wolfgang is a wizard, but this has elevated him to god-like status in my eyes :bowdown2:.  I now drive the Ferrari exclusively, but would love to get back into the Lotus at some point ... the problem is that the rough GPLES sounds of the 49 are now a little bothersome. I cannot seem to get the sound editor to work, so I was hoping that ducwolf had created GPLES files for the 49, or that anyone else has something to share/recommend.

GPL is truly a gem, thanks entirely to the community that continues to bring these wonderful updates for all our enjoyment.   Kudos to all! :clap2:

I'm as far away from a " god-like status" as the size of the universe !
Just worked hard and gave my best. That's what simple human beings always have to do.
Anyway, thanks for Your kind words !

As soon as my real life allows, I will continue with other sound sets on the GPLES platform.
But it will take time.
Creating soundsets with the quality standard of my first attempt for the Ferrari needs a huge amount
of work and knowledge about the particular engine sounds under different driving conditions. GPLES needs so much
work, because only one crossfader helps to get the files melting. All other files have to be tweaked by the
sound editor to let them melt together in a natural way.

Cheers,
Wolfgang

Need some help to get back to sound editing.
I have Win7 64bit new installation and have copied the
"dx8vb.dll" into "C:\Windows\SysWOW64".
After turning off the UAC I let run regsvr32 C:\Windows\SysWOW64\dx8vb.dll
But I got the error message
0x80070005
Any idea what I can do ?
I know this procedure was successful with my former Win7 64bit installation !!??


Thx in advance

Wolfgang, I cannot begin to fathom the amount of work this must take ... I tried creating a SINGLE sound file a while ago and it was simply a mess.  If not a god, you are an artist ... is there a difference :)?

Thanks for the Ferrari sounds ... I think I can live with racing only the 312 for the rest of my life .... pure blisssss!

Hi Lee n all

I started trying this GPLES V1.0 a while back. It seemed like some sounds were missing or at wrong volumes, so I went back to standard GPL sound.

A few days ago I tried using GPLES and it worked a little better. But I am also trying it with the 67X cars. Sometimes it sounds OK to very good but other times there seems to be something not quite right. Example: the Brabham BT24 sounds much quieter than the other car sounds and overall I am getting different results at different times.

Is there a way to check the quality of the GPLES sound files to make sure they have not been corrupted or mislabeled?

Thanks.

PH

What you need Paul is a complete makeover sound wise.

I use the ducwolf package for skids , crashes and such and I have 7 handpicked engine sounds for the different cars. Ive downloaded every soundfile I can get my hands on and now Im pretty happy with what I have. Should be no problem to send it to you if youre interested.

Otherwise I would recommend you check out "audacity" wich is a ingenious little piece of freeware that astounds me to this day with what it can do with sound files and formats. Its quite unbelievable actually. Its like 2 mb but it handles audio files like it was nothing and it never glitches or freezes. Use that to balance the different sounds if they are uneven.

I also have some volume problems with GPLES. In training when I'm driving alone everything is ok. But in races something happens with volume balance. Some *.wave parts start to play quiter than should be or become completly muted. And because  I race with AI or online most of the time this tool is left unused.

Sure. Send your sound files. Are they all to go in the GPLES folder?

Audacity sounds like a good sound editing tool.

But on that subject, where does the dx8vb.dll file go? The GPLES editor has an error message when launching: 'could not create DirectSound 8'.

Thanks.

Not sure about the GPLES folder and such , just regular wav. files. Should work somewhere.
