Hi,
This small fix will improve AI cars top speed. There was problem with original mod that on straights it was really easy to pass AI cars. Now they have same power and speed as player has. Thanks to Richard Cooke for the help!

I also made some adjustment to gplaF2.ini to keep AI cars at same level as before despite increased speeds. Also I tuned some other values to improve AI race behavior.

To install fix please extract all files to your GPL folder, delete gplcF2.exe and run GEM+ to generate new executable.
Attached File  GPL_F2mod_AI_fix.zip   27.27K   336 downloads

I also made mod specific track ini's for tracks from 1967 season. For each track AI cars fuel load was adjusted and made corrections to starting grids (where needed). For starting grids I use the info Greg and Michael provided here http://srmz.net/inde...opic=7691&st=75 Thanks to them!

Also If you want to see proper grid info in race weekend program you need seasons files with fixed starting grid formats.

This trackF2.ini files were made to work with my lps (http://srmz.net/inde...showtopic=10490). If you are using other lps then maybe you will need to adjust dlong_speed value. I have not revisited all tracks from 1967 yet. So second part of trackF2.ini files will be posted later

EDIT Finally full pack of trackF2.ini files is ready. I've add missing tracks and also made some adjustments to older files. Extract TrackF2ini_v2.zip pack into your 'gpl\track' folder

Attached Files

Thank you Pavel  :thumbup: . I believe Oulton Park Gold Cup is missing in the f2season file.

Hi, Gianfranco! Maybe I'm wrong but I didn't count Oulton races as for Formula 2. They were races for Formula 1 cars with support from Formula 2 cars, I think. So I didn't include Oulton into the season. But I include German GP race. Though F2 cars also support F1 cars there, at least they had their own starting grid :)

May be. As everything, it's a question of personal preference. In my f2season I have added Oulton Park Gold Cup to have all the tracks were F2 raced in RL in 1967. At the Gold Cup in September there were more F2 than F1, contrary to the Spring Cup in April, which was more a F1 event. Anyhow, if someone want to include Oulton these are the data to copy into the f2season. Pavel, thank you also for the latetst track AI updates. :wave:

OK thanks Pavel, I think that's all the main races catered for, I have a few different tracks in my F2Season where I have included the F1/F2 races and a couple of alternative tracks for variety, like oulton, 2nd Hockenheim and wetnurb for the Eifelrennen.
