Re: Non-championship races vs. championship difference

Are you doing the same quickrace and non championship race each time? I'm not using gp2lap, I'll re test with that as well. EDIT I can confirm that gp2 is picking up the date somehow. You can see the date in the advanced options menu Yes, always the same. Tested under Pro and Semi-Pro levels and sa...

Re: Non-championship races vs. championship difference

Yes, I open the game, go to a quickrace, leave the quickrace, go to non-championship race and then go though qualy and race (all accelerated). Then I usually close dosbox, open it again and do it all again, but if I don't close dosbox, just leave the game and start it again the results are the same....

Re: Non-championship races vs. championship difference

I did the same test today and the results were different for each time. I used the "accelerated time" thing from the cockpit (not from the ESC menu), but it shouldn't affect it since it should give the same results for both accelerated time options. I'm gonna run more tests later because I'm very in...

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 (g...

Re: Non-championship races vs. championship difference

If you join a non-championship race and go directly to the race, the trick won't work. You need to go through qualifying and then go to the race once you have a grid (after both qualys being finished). If you go directly to the race, the game will generate a grid and it will always be the same, as w...

Re: the flow of time in gp2

I'm gonna try ECE next time. Daum is probably not great if they hate it so much...lol...I never had any problems but I can't really say that I was ever happy with any DosBox version. Just keep in mind that GP2 is very heavy for DosBox and this may be something Daum handles better but they simply don...

Re: Does anyone run Ace level with keyboard?

Interesting, I'll try and run without f7 and see how I go, but I'll definitely keep auto gears (I already tried that and it wasn't pretty)... All in all I'm 3 seconds off the best pace. Maybe I'll have a season with Minardi instead of bringing shame to Ferrari I would suggest that you keep F7 enabl...

Re: Non-championship races vs. championship difference

Idk who figured it out, probably René Smit since there is a feature in GPxPatch that allows you to use a fixed seed (so many people can try the same race, and very important in GP3+ competitions since they have the possibility of changing weather conditions, which is also attached to the random numb...

Re: Non-championship races vs. championship difference

I did not know about the "quickrace" trick. Can you elaborate on this more? You caught my attention here. Like many games, GP2 uses a random number generator. It works like that: let's say some driver has 16000 grip and 300 random grip range. GP2 will get a random number between 0 and 300 and subtr...

Re: Does anyone run Ace level with keyboard?

By disabling F2 you can also gain some time (a lot of time depending on the track). But I really don't like the keyboard layout for gears so I usually leave it on. But I separate the gear up and down buttons (Space for up and CTRL for down since it doesn't give me another button option) because it g...

Re: the flow of time in gp2

I think the problem with DAUM is that it has not been in development for a while and the DosBox community usually prefers builds that keep being updated. The official build was very out of date for years but I think they updated it a few months ago. In my old computer, it was faster than the stock v...

Re: Non-championship races vs. championship difference

Hi and welcome! The only thing you should be aware of about running non-championship races is that when you fire up GP2, the random seed is always the same, so it will generate the same random "events" every time. Once you joined a session and leave it, it will create another random seed and it will...

Re: Does anyone run Ace level with keyboard?

For original GP2 (no custom carsets and tracks) I have a hard time beating the computer if I leave F7 enabled (assuming I'm using a setup that will give me the same top speeds as the computer). I need a really good setup in order to beat the race, but I usually in the top 6 since the computer car pe...

Re: Car numbers 1 - 99

Hi! Yes, the game uses the car numbers for looking up various tables and it is quite a challenge to get them changed outside the original range without breaking it. It should be something GP2Lap could theoretically do but it isn't developed any more. We would need someone with advanced knowledge on ...

Re: gp3 2000

Actually, it requested you to have GP3 installed iirc, but it was a standalone game (it uses no files from GP3). I think you just need the nocd patch, but I'm not sure it has been a long time.
