Grand Prix Legends Track Creating Tutorial

The above site appears to no longer exist.

I spent an hour searching for GPLTrk but it seems to be an endangered species.
Anyone know where I might find it and other related track building tools?

Thanks pete

Hi

I was looking for the track creation tools but the main site for them no longer exists. I started reading the track creation article at gplea but could not find the required tools. I remember years ago I built something. It was possible to drive around it but I all is gone now. I just thought I'd like to have another go at it.

Regards Pete

Ok I found track creation tools at gplr.srmz. I had to register but it still won't let me download so I think maybe I need to wait till validated or something.
Anyway will get there eventually I expect but it's taken hours of searching so far.

Regards Pete

[update]

Got everything finally, just made a backup of them all too just in case. Soory for being a pita.

I can't seem to find either of the SRB creating tools as the links seem to be dead:

SRB Mini 3do Editor v1.0

SRBMan v1.0.0.1

If someone could upload one of them or point me towards a working link I would be eternally grateful!

Thanks in advance :up:

I upload GPLTrk v2.1 for completeness sake. Unfortunately I don't have SRB Mini Editor v1.0 or SRBMan v1.0.0.1 :( .

BTW, here is the GPLEA Track Making Tutorial from the Internet Archive: http://web.archive.o...bi-knu/editing/
