Here are updates for the Le Mans 24 Hours - Circuit de la Sarthe with much increased FB, track sounds and an updated camera file. I adjusted the pitlane cam to give a full view of all pit boxes and cars entering / leaving the pit lane.  As a very old track construction, there are many graphics issues such as clipping, draw-order and mapping errors.  I have tried to minimize the view of these.

Remy's beautiful type7 horizon/sky from his beta acf67 Bugatti track has been "borrowed" as a replacement for the standard bsarthe horizon.  To properly orient the trees/objects with the track I rotated it (by re-naming horizon panels and the sky box) by 90 degrees to the right.  Denis, modded a few panels to remove Bugatti-specific graphics.  Maximum credit to Remy for his excellent attention to detail.

Denis has provided many texture updates which include a host of signs, beautiful trees, realistic houses ... along with some of Scotties's and Paul Jackson's updates.

Pavel made AI file updates for the track in 2017.  Driver lines and passing are quite good!  They are included here.  There are optional sub-folders with 2 or 3 wide passing along the Mulsanne straight.

The drivSC.ini file (from the SCX Mod install) has the proper driver/car lineup for the championship race.  There are sub-folders with alternate drivSC.ini files (again, from the SCX Mod install) containing varied car/driver lineups.  The pit boxes within the trackSC.ini (from the SCX Mod install) have been moved to place the cars in the boxes on either side of the central tower.
NOTE: There is a NEW trackSC.ini file included here, that corrects some issues.  This fix was made by ginetto.  Thank you!

There is a LO-FB version of the bsarthe.3do file with track sounds in a sub-folder, if needed.

(Must have original track installed first)

EDIT:  The trackSC.ini, recSC.ini, drivSC.ini and program files are supplied with the SCXmod for Sportscars.

Thanks, tjc and deegee.  Please re-download the archive in Post #1 - I had included the wrong trackSC.ini file.  Fixed, now.

Many thanks to all involved!
Le Mans never looked so good for GPL!
A very, very nice update! :thumbup:

Are these fixes included?
1) Gap Fix Le Mans Sarthe by Ginetto
2) Disco Fix Le Mans Sarthe by Lou Magyra

Yesterday I had a freeze driving offline.
Then I installed the two fixes in the order 1) then 2).
I just did some laps online and had no problems.
I don`t know if that was really the solution, but it won`t hurt using it. ;)

Stefan, if you installed in the order that you say ... then the Lou Magyar bsarthe.trk will overwrite ginetto's bsarthe.trk file.  :)

By the way, the Lou Magyar bsarthe.trk file is included in my full update.
Also, ginetto's bsarthe.3do was used as the base for the ones in my archive with only track sounds added.
There are two versions: a HI-FB and a LO-FB (ginetto's default with sounds added) - use the one that works on your PC.

:)

Thx for the info Greg.
By comparing the dates of the files I thought that Lou Magyar bsarthe.trk file could already have been used in your update. But I wasn`t sure about ginetto's bsarthe.3do.
As I used both fixes in the above-posted order for my older Le Mans track update and never had a Freeze or CTD anymore, I thought it should also work in this order again with you update. :)
Since I know how exactly and well you work, I almost thought that you had the fixes included. :thumbup:

I will leave my uploaded fixes above online in case anyone wants them.

:wave:

So, if testing goes well can we hope for a single file/zip for a one off update.

Thanks Paul.
