GPLSS - GPL Season Switcher.
-------------------------------------------
Posted Image

A small tool to allow you to *trick* track installers into thinking that  they are installing event information into 67season.ini when in fact  the event info is installed into a season file of your choosing.

To use:

Put GPLSS.exe anywhere you like.
Run it and select your GPL install location. - it will write one file upon execution named gplss.ini which holds your GPL location information.
Select the season file you wish the track event to appear in.
Click the Go !! button. - A requester appears with some info and an Ok button. Dont click Ok UNTIL you have installed the track.
Install the track.
Acknowledge requester - click on the Ok button.

Thats it !

I have included a  small help file in the program accessed by clicking the '?' question  mark button.

Attached File  GPLSS.zip   316.15K   54 downloads

P.S
I have limited tracks to 64 per season.

Excellent!  Thank you!  This has been my major complaint with track installers, I always had to clean up my ini files after using one.

All of the installers that I've run lately have an option where you can turn off the update to 67season.ini. You do get a warning that you won't be able to run the track without using the season editor in GEM, but as that's one of the reasons I have GEM installed, it's fine.

Are there many older installers still left around?

You're right, Saiph. But I think this tool is thought for installing tracks to a certain mod only. E.g. installing Montjuic for 69 only.
