Re: dosbox ece or dosbox svn daum..

From my point of view I only chose ECE because the vogons people seemed really against DAUM (?) and samsepi advised me that ECE also solved the speed issue, which was my main motivation to change dosbox versions in the first place. I'm happy with ECE as it solved the issue and have no complaints ab...

Re: Installing GP2 using DOSBox to access carsets, etc?

I just copy a clean install of the game into a separate folder, then I put the dosbox commands in the configuration file itself. I run gp2edit from Windows and make sure it's targeted to the correct copy of the game. I then target my desktop shortcut to the specific configuration file for the modded...

Re: Does anyone run Ace level with keyboard?

Awesome thanks ismael, I decided to go down to pro just to hone my set-ups for 1 season because I've never really played with the set-ups much but it's actually good fun. I finished 2nd in Brazil and 3rd in Aida (20% races). Great news! I'm feeling like playing "Grand Prix 2 - Manager Mode!" I seld...

Re: Non-championship races vs. championship difference

Thanks for explaining it René. 1 thing I'm a bit confused about is when you refer to the "call", what exactly is the call? Honestly I don't know if other racing titles work differently, but gpx is the only series which gives me the illusion of racing with real drivers. The AI and general feel of the...

Re: the flow of time in gp2

If I have the 32 bit version do you still recommend that I do this? I did some research on what you wrote (because I didn't understand what dosbox:i386 is) but I couldn't find any clear answer so I put it to the side while I was testing out ECE Those instructions are for linux- are you using window...

Re: the flow of time in gp2

make sure you are using the 32 bit version, not the 64... big difference in PO there.... I'll double check, that reminds me of something you said in the other post: In a bid of desperation- I posted this as a question on the VOGONS forum. I received a tip from a user that I want to give credit to "...

Re: the flow of time in gp2

I just use the stock file with output changed to ddraw and window resolution changed to 800x600. I just check and I indeed have the timing bug :oops: EDIT: I also tested 0.74-3 and it also has the timing bug. MOAR EDIT: ECE seems to be much better than both the official build and also Daum indeed (...

Re: Non-championship races vs. championship difference

Thanks for the insight René, it's quite fascinating stuff. All 5 bytes are processed using XORs and shifts on each call, resulting in a very long sequence of pseudorandom numbers (only 1 of the bytes is used as 'output' of this function). Skipping the first 0 to N numbers of this sequence results in...

Re: Non-championship races vs. championship difference

It doesn't prove anything (DosBox and VirtualBox could have the same issue), but running GP2 in a Win98 VirtualBox vm also has the same issue with the first quickrace always having the same results (both running from Win98 or rebooting on MS-Dos mode). One thing I thought was trying to install win9...

Re: Does anyone run Ace level with keyboard?

Hello GP2tifoso28, I'm sending attached the setup I used recently to finished 2nd in Brazil. I got lucky as Schumacher got stuck behind a Ferrari, but it was by far result ever in Interlagos. Remembering: original game, driving with David Coulthard/Williams, Ace level, 50% race distance, keyboard. ...

Re: Non-championship races vs. championship difference

Wowww the legend himself has appeared!!!! What a nice surprise What you explained about aborting the quickrace makes perfect sense now, I was wondering how it could possibly have made any difference. I can also confirm that when I was quitting the game, I was just typing "GP2" into the command promp...

Re: Non-championship races vs. championship difference

So- to summarize We start GP2, and then I can calibrate my wheel/pedals. go to quickrace, and I will appear on the grid. hit "escape" and abandon. Then I can go and act normal, doing my "non championship race"... do you concur? Yes I concur, that's what worked for me. Just quit the race straight aw...

Re: Non-championship races vs. championship difference

I found a solution to the problem. When you do the first quickrace, don't accelerate the time. Make sure you abandon the race. Now the seed appears to reset. I have spent another half a day testing this and now my data is consistent with Rremedio. In all my earlier tests I was accelerating the quick...

Re: Non-championship races vs. championship difference

Ok it gets weirder If I run a non championship race in 0.74 and an identical race in ECE I get 2 different results. But if I rinse and repeat, the results on ECE are always the same, and the results on 0.74 are always the same (but different from each other) If I try the quickrace trick in ECE, the...
