Don't think it has been fixed since, so here it is. Better late than never ;)

Unzip it in your gpl install (where the 65mod is)

Warning! Don't install this files. It will damaged 65 mod.

Remy, You've removed all mod data from 90.xml! Original 90.xml has size of 454993 bytes and yours is only 106202 bytes.

Lotus 33 is one of my favourite cars on GPL, and i use it a lot. However, never noticed that problem on oil pressure needle :lol:
Thanks for noticing Remy, hope you can get it working, waiting for the little fix :up:

What is missing exactly? I can't see any issue on my side

Here as GEM+ option.

Again, unzip it in your Gpl install. You should see the "gaugefix" option in GEM+, just tick it, all the rest remains unchanged

Can anybody look at the oil pressure gauge while driving? If you can you need to drive faster.  :P

Alan, sorry if you already know this.  Make certain that Remy's file un-archives to this folder:

\gpl\Mods\GEM+\gpl65\options  ~~~> gaugefix.xml

Then, when you startup GEM+ and select the 65Mod,  It should appear in the lower right-hand box as an option that you need to 'tick'.  This will apply the fix to the Lotus 33 oil pressure gauge.  :)

Thanks gliebzeit, I did do it correctly.
I installed this when it was first released and could not get it to work then.
Re-installed the file yesterday; still not working.
Started-up GPL today and, without making any changes, it works!

How strange is that?
Thanks again for your advice, and thanks to Remy for the file fix.

Hello Greg,

how is the name of the Graphics editor? A such programme would save me and other an amount of work.
GEM+ (which I do not use, beyond it) patcht apparently temporarily the exe files under retention of the
"original files" and ignores additional changes (Hex editor).

Greetings to Florida

Harald
