Hi Guys

With Silv50 there is a grey wall all around. Is there any way to fix that?
Grey barriers can either stem from missing jam files or tracksize limit. Many tracks need the jams from other tracks as well to work.

Re: Re starting race

CTRL + R used to be the the command that worked in "Indianapolis 500 . The Simulation", in "Indy Car Racing" they somehow switched it to Shift + R, but there war never a possibility to do this in Grand Prix Series, at least as far as I know.

Re: Template for Trackmaps

I definitaly like trackmaps in that style, I also used to get such maps for season updates, but in many cases the maps where made in a different style for the upcoming season and I had to find all circuits again and make them GP2 compatible :( I think of maybe using layers and shadows to make it loo...

Re: Nine new tracks for GP2

Re: Template for Trackmaps

I simply used the displayed red layout from GP2Edit, copy paste makes it easy :D

I also considered versions with more graphics, but much more effort and not that easy to get an uniform look and not have that copyright stuff when releasing it :D

Re: Grand Prix 2020 version

A special situation, we where used to make decissions which GPs to skip due to our 16 track limit and know it is unlikely we will have 16 unique events :D It will be interesting to see how the final calendar develops and if another track (Hockenheim) gets a shot. I hope we don`t lose any more classi...

Re: MicroProse is returning

Nice find, I hope it works out for them and we finally get great games from them again. And the hopes for a GC-Comeback are still alive :D

Re: Template for Trackmaps

Personally, I like the idea of using an image that says "slot 12", "slot 3" (or whatever slot it is) rather than having an actual track picture. I change tracks so often and without gp2lap I would not know what slot is what. Yes, the slots are tedious, I agree. For this reason I have one Full GP2 v...

Re: Template for Trackmaps

I think they look very good. But to be honest, I think they would look better being a bit more colourful. But I love the clean design. Unfortunately, I don't think you can get a better image from the track editor. Thank you :D Yes, I have tried many variations with more colors, but this is the best...

Re: Template for Trackmaps

I have revised the template to be more minimalistic and easier to adapt: It now uses the tracklayout generated by Trackeditor No flags any more -> So it is irrelevant if Brands Hatch is GP of Europe or Great Britain Here is my first try for Roberto`s and Antonio`s great Monza 2019.

Re: A new track ?

It is really amazing what is possible in grand prix 2 =D> If they released the game with that quality the homecomputers of this era would have hadserious work to do, not sure if my old machine would have been able to run it :mrgreen:

Re: Original game 750 HP season

Simtek is lovely to play with I agree. How much less bhp you will have? With luck in reliability regular points finishes could be done I think. 50% race distance also gives you gains with good strategy, very interesting as well :D

Re: Speed of game

I got the problem as well, it seems to be in conjuntion with Win10 64 bit. GP2 still works best in virtual or native windows XP IMO. In Win10 GP2.Exe works quite good, GP2LAP.EXE only with low vga-mode. I use the settings posted in your other thread, I fiddled around with CPU and graphics and manage...

Nice idea, having a strong teammate in a car with not top BHP spices things up :mrgreen:
