Last Time You Raced Unmodded (Vanilla) Gpl?

Yesterday, 09:12 PM

It surely must be 13 or more years since I last drove GPL without any of the wonderful graphical mods we have today. I haven't deleted/rebuilt my GPL folder since my hard drive crashed in 2000 or 2001.

I'm really tempted to clear out all the 3DOs, MIPs and WAVs from my 'cars', 'tracks' and 'sound' folders and remind myself what GPL was like back in the day.

The Salisbury Differential

Yesterday, 08:21 AM

I found this video animation very useful to understand the Salisbury diff working...maybe the most misunderstood part of the setup (IMO)


This read helps too...

And this is fo me the best diff tutorial available...

Video Capture Program...much Better Than Fraps For Gpl Capture?

Yesterday, 12:46 AM

This topic has been covered before, but I thought the options we were all using were far from optimal. The low quality of my UTube videos has always irritated me, because, although I can run GPL smoothly at 1920 X 1080 and at 60 FPS, up to now I have been forced to use an in game resolution of 1024 X 768 and FRAPS capture at only 30 FPS to achieve smooth video capture. Although I am not planning a new video in the foreseeable future, I did spend some time on the net today researching any new software alternatives to FRAPS and came up with this.... http://www.bandicam.com/ and this; http://www.bandicam.com/support/tips/best-codec/ After downloading and some experimentation with the various options, to my great surprise, I can now produce very smooth high quality AVI movies at a constant 60 FPS using full screen capture; i.e. at 1920 X 1080. These are the video capture settings I used. In ADVANCED Tab FPS = 60 FULL SCREEN QUALITY = 80 FILE TYPE = AVI CODEC = H264 NVenc (VBR)* *This Nvenc codec apparently only uses the partitioned part of modern Nvidea graphics cards to process the render, so it doesn't use the CPU for that task. This may be why such efficiency can be achieved as by comparison, both GPL and FRAPS are very CPU intensive I believe. The file sizes also seem reasonable for full screen 60FPS capture [ 800mb for nearly two minutes ] as Bandicam compresses the output as it captures. There is the usual trial free version and the licensed version about $35. Works for me; hope it provides benefit for anyone else willing to try it. Cheers Jim

Gpl World Site

Yesterday, 12:51 PM

Anybody know about the site and go to gpl world.
About two weeks back the site was working but now it says temporarily unavailable?

Copy of my link http://en.gplworld.eu/
Not sure if others are getting on or is it my browser.

New Pc: What To Re-Install?

Yesterday, 07:00 AM

I've just had to switch to a new PC (well, laptop). I've copied across my complete GPL Secrets and Sierra folders from the old hard drive to the new one, as I remembered reading somewhere that with GPL you do not necessarily have to re-install, and I reckoned it was worth a go.

Anyway, when I try to run Gem+ on my new PC I get the error "An alternative front end for GPL and conduit for the mods produced by the GPL Secrets group is not responding."

If I try to bypass Gem+ and just run GPL direct, I get "glide2x.dll not found". I've searched on my old PC but can't find this file anywhere.

I assume that between them these indicate that my attempt at laziness has failed, and I need to re-install both Gem and GPL? If so, do I have to re-install every Mod and track or can I carry over any of the files I already have?

Yours in desperation...!
