Hi,
I don't know why but game doesn't show engine type for Eagle in team info. Maybe it can be fixed  :hat-tip:

It it a 8-Valve S4 engine, not sure how to edit that in, the pbf file is just the background.

I found this at http://www.ultimatec...-1-Weslake.html

Quote

"The first Mark 1 chassis was ready in May of 1966, which was well ahead of the planned V12 engine under development at Weslake. To keep up the momentum, the new car was fitted with a readily available Coventry Climax four cylinder engine, which displaced just under 2.8 litre. While down on power compared to the larger engined rivals, the Mark 1 Eagle performed remarkably well."

Thus, is it "the same car" than the 66's Eagle Climax, isn't it?

I don't know why by today gpl mod team has no interest to fix any bugs in their releases: Eagle's engine info for 69 mod, fuel prediction for 67 patch.

I know where is problem with Eagle info page but I don't know how to solve it. Problem is with type of engine. When I change it to V4 or H4 whole string of specs is shown. When I set it to S4 - I get string filled with ****** like shown in my first post :(

Probably because the '69 mod team no longer exists.  And AFAIK, there never was a '67 mod team.  It was just a bunch of graphics updates made by several people.

The team maybe not, but the people involved in the project (69 and 69X) are still around ;)

Off topic but I feel sorry for the guy trying to drive that against the much more modern F1 cars in 69. I had fun driving it myself just to see which place I can come in. :P

The problem is likely somewhere in the physics files, and to create a new set of physics just for this problem seems excessive. Perhaps you can rename the ingine to L4 or something, hopefully that works :) .

To fix this bug place this two string in the end of 69-extra.cst file and generate new gplx69.exe wit GEM+.

[String Table]
516 = "%1-valve S%2"
