Hi ed76
Finally I downloaded it without any problems. The problems started when I tried to
read the read me file to find out what I had to do to run the mod, but it is all in french.
I didn´t understand what do I have to do with the Gem+ and how to create the 66F2
and the F3 season.. I also want to disable pribula and I don´t know what to do, because
I never use it. The other thing is that I´m only able to watch races. Every time I try to get to
the cockpit, the screen freezes and I have to restart the computer. Could you translate
all the instructions to english because my french only goes to `boite de vitesses`.
Thanx in advance
chris

a) download
b ) unzip
c) click on glp65d.exe (you can create a shortcut)

Gem is only used if you need to recreate the exe (as with all mods GPL) , see the the screen "GEM" in the readme folder

Hi ed76
I did all of this and worked fine. What is not working is, when I get to the cockpit, the screen
freezes. But if I watch the race from TV1 or TV2 it works fine. And I can´t create the
66f2 and the f3 season on Gem+.Also I really want to disable pribula. I never use pribula.
It only distract me when I´m racing and besides,back in the 60´s there were no information
as partial lap times and all the things that pribula does. I rather go `blind`as the drivers
went back then, the only info available was one lap delayed pit board and that was that.
But nevertheless, thank you very much for this Mod that I was waiting for so long and
finally it comes out.
Merci
chris

Oh, by the way, do I have to leave the Gem+ open when I start the new mods?

Some help to those who are struggling: I run adblock so phantom download buttons are no issue, and using 4shared I clicked Signup, where I entered some nonsense, but it let me past to download the file. I saved the gpl folder into C:\SIERRA\gpl2, so as not to interefere with the main install. Then I copied the gpl.exe from the main install into the new folder. Using GEM I added this new gpl.exe into the installs. Now it is a case of creating two players one for F3, and one for F2, and adding the two carsets(GPL65FD/G). For the F2 tick patch carset for sound, and advance trainer, for F3 carsound plus basic trainer. There are also a couple of french championship seasons in the seasons folder, along with the two including non-championships.

With it installed it looks and especially sounds great! These slower cars make the racing line so important, and in F3 the quickest line does often not use the entire track. The long straights are hard, as the pack is quickly at maximum speed, so impossible to pass until the breaking zone, which is very short.

Fantastic job ED76 and those who helped you, hopefully more people can install and enjoy this fun little mod.

for F3 in the set up, adjustment of the gearbox is very important
a "click" on a shift speed can significantly change the laptime

Now everything is working fine. The only thing is how to disable pribula. Please
somebody help me. It covers more than half of the screen. I didn´t know this
mod came with pribula included. I never had it myself on any mod since 1999,
when I got GPL. It really distracts me a lot. It is impossible to drive with all the
numbers and names popping in and out. Please !!!!...somebody help !!!
