Re: GP2 using Dosbox on Mac OS X 10.5

So GP2 runs on my MacBook Pro (YAY!!) and I have found a way to import carsets and tracks via exporting files from my PC to a USB drive and overwriting the files. Longwinded but worth it. The only problem is that GP2 is incredibly slow on DosBOX, and a lap basically takes 5 minutes when it should ta...

Crazy idea

Hi guys! Long time no speak!! I've just reinstalled GP2 using DosBox and I have an incredibly mad idea. Thinking of creating a live broadcast channel for GP2 AI racing. If anybody remembers my GP2 league from a few years ago, I'm considering a revival as a virtual GP manager so that teams can once a...

GPM2 and GPW: How can I still play them?

I have copies of GPW and GPM2, and would like to play them too. But neither will work for me on Windows 10.

HELP!!!

Re: GP2Lap on DOSBOX - Really slow

Dim person, quite complicated looking, might need some ideas/suggestions.

Quite thick, sorry.

GP2Lap on DOSBOX - Really slow

Got everything setup visually, now looks perfect.

However, gameplay far too slow.

Any suggestions to bring it to normal?

Re: GP2 and Windows 7

Hi folks! I have finally worked out the DOSBOX option to get GP2Lap up and running on a Windows 7 laptop so it looks like I'm back! The only thing I haven't clicked with yet is the RCR distances. 1. Editing the CFG file hasn't worked, largely because it isn't registering my changes. Is there a certa...

Re: micropros gp2 on windows 7 how to

Hi guys! I'm back! I know, it's been years, but I have decided to get back into the game I was born to play! Nowadays I am commentating for Eurosport and Motors TV, in fact this weekend I'm at the Ferrari Racing Days at Silverstone, but I found you guys again by accident and now I want back in!!! I ...

Re: GP2 on Windows 7 - AAAAAAGGHH!!!!

If you end up with the same conclusions for yours, you may try other virtual machines, like VirtualBox + Win98 or Virtual PC 2007 + WinXP. Some people got great experience with those. In my case, VirtualBox + Win98 is really fast for GP2, but not as smooth as I need for competitive play. VirtualPC ...

Re: GP2 on Windows 7 - AAAAAAGGHH!!!!

But you are using GP2Lap right? Thanks to it you will be able to reduce the rcr distances like I said (mines are 80 000, yours should be around 3000-4000). Also if ddraw is slow you can try the default settings. Leave machine to default. Set memsize to 32. Set scaler to none. Set cycles up to 10 00...

Re: GP2 on Windows 7 - AAAAAAGGHH!!!!

Gave it a try, but I can only get it working half the normal speed if it's on VGA and EVERY graphic is turned off.

I think this might be game over. Could try it on the laptop when it's repaired, but I fear my GP2 days are over.

Re: GP2 on Windows 7 - AAAAAAGGHH!!!!

GP2 and GP2Lap are both the same in terms of speed. What RCRs should I try?

Re: GP2 on Windows 7 - AAAAAAGGHH!!!!

Works much better than before, thank you. But it's still appallingly slow, too slow to race. Any more suggestions??

Re: GP2 on Windows 7 - AAAAAAGGHH!!!!

OK, now I have GP2 up and running on DOSBOX. Apparently GP2Lap is a no-go area on DOSBox so I'll live without it. However, GP2 on DOSBOX is stupidly slow. I have even made adjustments to the config file as recommended by rremedio on Dec 18th: "I use these configurations and I think I have good quali...
