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...

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

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: 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.
