Hi all.
I've a problem with the thundercar mod , I don't know to whom ask an help. I've installed correctly the mod as I made for F2, 1955 and so on, but when I try to choose a track, I get crash to desktop. I don't have problem with other mod, is there some patch I need?
Thank you in advance.

TC mod cannot run on longer tracks as Targa or Tandil, is that your problem?

At what point is this happening? Normally when you boot GPL you end up at the main screen where you can select event type (Practice, Single Race, etc), hit the green button and you get to the track selection screen, hit it again you're in the event menu, a final push of the green button puts you in the car ready to drive. At which green button press do you CTD?Disregard the question if you try to run Tandil or Targa, they wont run with the TCs.

Hi Michkov, thank you for your reply, but I don't have these tracks installed. This is not the problem. I get CTD when I try to chose a track. My GEM+ starts GPL, I see the main screen, when I try to push the green button choosing a track, I get CTD and I see GEM+.

This sort of failure is hard to track down, most likely a file is missing somewhere. Reinstalling the TC mod should do the trick in most cases.

Right what jonny'o said. The files in this thread only work if you got the Thundercars mod installed first. Then you extract the files into their respective folders. Just the files alone wont work.

I installed this rar file into the Lotus in my TC carset.  When I pull up the TC carset in GEM+ and enter GPL, selecting the Oil Bizzarini (Lotus), I end up with the default TC cars.  Not sure where you choose between the USAC cars/paints and the default in the GPL UI.  Stumped.
