Nice work Tommie, the car(s) look great. I'm just curious though - there are a number of .3DO files in your download which start with odd characters such as "{" and "&". Is this really how they are meant to be named? I assume it's ok, because everything seems to work fine, it just seems a little odd that's all.

Brillant work. Excellent eye for detail and accuracy. A lot of research, patience and effort clearly went into this update. Chapeau.

Yeah, the 1969x mod has so many cars (44) I ran out of letters to use :D . The original 1969x mod uses the tire prefixes from the first Brabham slot for all three slots. However tires and rims changed during the season and I wanted my update to reflect that, so I asked Lee if he could do something about it. He made a new 90.xml for me with new tire prefixes for two of the three Brabham graphics options to make this possible :) .

The original 1969x mod uses prefix 'a' for c00, c30 and c40, my update uses prefix 'a' for c00, '{' for c30 and '&' for c40.

So that's why I've made a special mention of it in the readme when uninstalling. If you uninstall the update and don't reinstate the original 90.xml, the mod won't work anymore, as it can't find the tires for slot c30 and c40. This way there can never be any problems :) .

Thanks very much Tommie - superb update  :bravo:

Is it possible to see the suspension/engine in the rear view mirrors? Deleting the rim mips doesn't seemt to work with this update....

Further testing has found the following for showing objects in rear mirrors:

C00 - remove abri.mip Success
C30 - remove jbri.mip Success
C40 - rename zbribrab.mip (from Irridux update) to kbri.mip (after removing original kbri.mip)    Success - but all wings appear green in rear view mirror (works cars and Courage and Moser - should be yellow, metal and orange respectively)

Any help on C40 would be appreciated.

Individual mirror mips in c40 is not supported by the 3do at this time. I can of course make it work, but this would require some editing. It'll be for a future update :) . In the meantime you can use kbricour from the DAT and rename that to kbri for the blue car, and kbrimose for the orange car :) .

Thanks for the extra information Tommie, very interesting. I'm always curious to know what all you guys do "under the hood/bonnet" to get GPL to work so well. :up:

Hello TvO

Can I suggest you this steering wheel as an alternate version. I can give you the ".mip" if you want to add it in your braham bt26 pack.

Cheers

Dede

Sure! I've seen this logo but I think it's a logo that was used in the seventies, when Ecclestone was the boss. There is another racer who races the BT26, and he is using the blank center cover that I've included in the update. I think that was what the Brabham team was using in 1969. Courage and Moser still had Repco logo's on their steering wheel, even though they ran Cosworths :D .

I've looked at Dede's pic again and what do I find on the shifter knob? A Repco logo :D . I believe Repco was still part of the Brabham Racing Organisation in some way so it might be that even the works team still had Repco on their steering wheels at this time.
