When racing the 66 mod , which I seem to be doing most lately,   Bob Bondurant's number does not show up on the car.
In the 66 driver.ini he is number 16.

If he's driving no 16 there should be a bon16a.3do somewhere in the dat file for the car he's driving (e.g. if he's driving a coventry it should be in the coventry.dat file)
Do you have a .dat viewer? I'll have a look when i'm at home..

My driv66.ini says:

[ driver_17 ]
team_number = 5
team_order = 1
car_number = 48
first_name = Bob
last_name = Bondurant

But team 5 is Lotus and it should be Team 1 which is BRM. Afterall he drove a BRM P261 with the number 48 at Monza in 1966 :confused:

Unless the numbering is changed in the 66mod..

If you run any of the Championship races of 1966, Bondurant is in the correct car/number.
But if you run a non-Championship race gpl uses the generic driver.ini which has an error.

Here is a fix for the error  ( attached ) Just unzip and drop this new driv66.ini into your gpl folder.

Thanks for noticing this error which had gone unspotted through testing and a year of public release :)


@Martin, in 66mod there are 16 teams as far as gpl is concerned, so BRM is not team 1  ;)

Paul. Thanks for the quick fix ( which imediatly corrected the problem) and again for the wonderful mod. I run strictly single race weekends.  For some reason I still am very partial to the 65 and"66" mods and still run the 67's a lot.  

I really  prefer the non downforce cars and wish F1 today would keep all the wonderful safety aspects that have benn developed but completely do away with downforce.  Let the tries and especially the driver back into the equation and quit spending so much money on technology and cars.

I think that is why GPL has lasted so long.  

Regards
Pawgy

Paul, shall I put this fix on the website? Or is it in any other pack already included?

Hi Stefan
I just d/l and unpacked the gpl1966_1.0 installer at GPLWORLD. It does NOT have the fixed driv66.ini.


EDIT
The correct generic drv66.ini is the single file posted #4 above.


Thanks
Paul

EDIT
It IS included in the GPL 1966 F1 Mod Patch v2.0
So assuming everyone will d/l and install the v2.0 patch there is no need to post the fixed driv66.ini


Thanks
Paul

Paul, I just D/L and installed V2.0 patch (missed this somehow, but thanks a lot) but Bondurant is still without a number. I will use the corrected ini

Hi Alan.
You are correct.

I checked the v2 pack and saw the drv66.ini was updated but did not check the data

The single file drv66.ini post #4 above is correct

This is how the generic drv66.ini Bondurant data should look.

[ driver_16 ]
team_number = 8
team_order = 1
car_number = 16
first_name = Bob
last_name = Bondurant
home_town = Evanston, IL, USA


Sorry for the confusion.

Paul

Sorry to hijack the thread but I have a similar problem with the 55 Mod both Mieres and Muso have no numbers. And don't get me started on the 65 Mod - no numbers at all.
