Kart race in Wales - sweet.

Thanks guys! This improves 65 mod to the current standards and will certainly encourage me to drive it again.

We need to get some races going online to all see this improvement for ourselves :)

John Roberts and I were chatting about that last night. :)

I think we should ask Swen and perhaps look into revising the Sunday Pickup formula, which afterall used to be 65 mod before 66 was released, and perhaps look at running 65 and 66 mods in alternate weeks maybe, possibly on the same tracks? Alternatively, instead of the last race of the day being the small 66 mod cars, maybe we could run the last race of the day as a 65 mod race instead for a change?

Opinions?

Although I don't use the best laps screen very often (I use G2PL) I thought I would check it out as we now have all available tracks displayed, but I only see a few track times (6) which seem to be from the plac65.ini file.

I made all the backups mentioned in the readme, just in case, but nothing seems different from the pre v2.0.2 files.

Where should all my best lap times be recorded?

Your best lap times are recorded in your 65 player ini ( plac65.ini ) so what you need to do is copy any previously recorded lap times from your old (saved ) plac65.ini and paste them into the new one.

Also, I am running GEM+ 2.5.26 & have just noticed that the 'enforce 64 track limit' is ticked, but when I deselect it, click OK & then return to view the seasons again, it is ticked again!?

Am I missing something?

Yeah mine does that as well and I am using 2.5.9. It just means that you have to uncheck the box each time you fire up gem season manager and add extra tracks ( if the total is more than 64 ).

Bump drafting seems possible now. I pushed Dark quite a ways and then he gave me a nice bump draft a few laps later. :D

So, just to clarify (?)

In GEM+, when running the new 65s, should I turn off the "Long Track Support" checkbox, because LTS is now an integral part of the 65 mod?  

Or, do I need to keep it turned on if I want to drive Targa, etc.?

Or, can I leave it enabled (for convenience/habit), and it won't change anything, because GEM is smart enough to see that the old LTS patch no longer applies to the new 65v2 code?

Or what...

Definitely do not check the long track box with the 65 mod. It is now integral within the 65 mod (as it will be in all mods in due course) so the check box option will ultimately go away. :)

Once you have unchecked it for 65 mod, GEM is smart enough to remember you did that and will leave it unchecked thereafter for the 65 mod.
