Hi all.
I've installed the racing line of Phil Flack.
It says pick dat, pick groove (Of gpl replay analizer)up to here is everything OK, but when it says pick centerline i don't have anything to choose.
Someone has the link to the page of centerlines?. I think it was from the old RSC

Well, I think that site is down for now... I had a talk about it with Al Heller, he send me the .cln's of all tracks in gpl, muchausen, challenge ahd historic rank. Obviously .cln's are quite hard to extract and noone does it anymore, but probably some ppl have more tracks... I'l post the ranks cln's here, hope its not against some rules.

Attached is my complete collection of CLN's.
Also, with some tracks, you sometimes find the track surface looks like a zebra crossing after regrooving. In that case dropping the attached groove.mip file into the track folder should fix it.

PS: just noticed Sky has already provided the groove file; anyway you only need to use it for some tracks...

Pavel I don't believe that one was made for that track. Border Reiver is the one with the knowledge of how to make them.

Speaking of which, Rob is there any chance you would consider making a .cln file for Brands67? We have 4 different ranks that use this track and it would be great to be able to regroove it. I and others would appreciate it I'm sure.

It was me I think, with prior permission from Dave Sabre who made the track and said it was OK to release it.

I'll have a look at Monthlery when I get time, although since I know how it was made I suspect that it will never be properly happy, in much the same way as the AI will never be 100% happy there either. That track really is a case in point for using a deliberately mismatched trk and 3do file since what you look at and what you drive on are not the same thing, or at least, they don't have to be. ;) (Mind you, doing that would still not help with regrooving since that does not work properly for tracks where the trk and 3do are not matched....)

Same here. Always wanted it but never knew it existed. Really necessary for getting that strange line through South Bend that only seems to work in the GPL version.

Thanks very much  :hat-tip:

I'm after a cln file for Road America (track folder elkhart), does anyone have it?

If not, how hard is it to create a cln file from scratch? I have some programming skills but no understanding of the file formats.

Having looked at several of the Noonan converted ICR2 -> GPL tracks with that in mind, I would be very surprised if it would work since none of the others do.

Basically, it only works for tracks made using Phil's track making tools. The Nooonan converted tracks and also John Black's Oulton Park did not use Phil's track compiler. As a result of this, they will not regroove using Phil's Racing Line tool. There are also some other cases where stuff goes weird for other tracks too, but that particular group don't ever seem to work, despite many hours trying.
