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 ...

Re: Non-championship races vs. championship difference

Can I ask what your goal is? I agree with your pursuit of realism. Don't be brought down by "wasting" your time trying to figure this out. It's not a waste. I remember with ICR2 I was able to spend a few straight days of testing to figure out how the "yellow flag" bug worked and I was able to fix i...

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

I tried to PM Rene on gpgames but his inbox is full and his forum appears to be down. I don't know of any other way to contact him.

Re: Non-championship races vs. championship difference

I woke up this morning and I was blown away by the attention this got. I wonder if there is a way to alter the "seed" in memory so we can force more variation? I personally would never use championship seasons, I do all my races one at a time and keep track of the results by spreadsheet. I don't ev...

Re: Non-championship races vs. championship difference

It seems my gp2 is always running on the same seed, which means every randomly generated number from the seed, is identical and in the same sequence every time if the conditions are replicated. That is consistent with the data that I have collected. Any more feedback is welcomed. Unfortunately Rene ...

Re: Non-championship races vs. championship difference

Ok, new test results. This time, I selected a driver, Gachot, because he doesn't normally qualify for the races and is unlikely to affect the virtual reality. Next, I set his grid position to 26, so that the AI don't crash into him when I accelerate the quickrace. Any change in the sequence of event...

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 i...

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 ...

Re: Non-championship races vs. championship difference

In other words, if you follow the exact same circumstances after booting the game, you get the exact same results every time. If you run the same quick race, quit, then start a championship, then quit the game, start the same quickrace, start a championship with the same settings, you now have 2 ide...

Re: Non-championship races vs. championship difference

I'm starting to think that this might be a dosbox related bug, maybe the dosbox emulation is interfering with the seed code causing the same identical seed to launch every time. Gp3 and gp4 seems to launch a random seed on each boot. Is anyone running gp2 on a proper DOS system that can run some te...

Re: Non-championship races vs. championship difference

Here's what Renè Schmidt says about the random seed, in relation to gpxpatch for gp3 and gp4: Random seed GPx uses pseudo random number generators to make each race a little different. These generators spit out apparently random numbers, but they're not. They are extracted from a starting sequence c...

Re: Non-championship races vs. championship difference

Guess what? The same problem in championship mode. The interlagos race had the exact same result as the non championship race. Then Aida, was the same exact result after running the championship again. Surely theres a solution to this problem. Now I run a non championship race at Aida, completely di...

Re: the flow of time in gp2

Yes I noticed it was constantly met with violent opposition on the dosbox forums which was why I was nervous to use it. But I wasn't sure if it was because there was anything actually wrong with it, or if there was some other motivations behind encouraging other people not to use it. Oddly, despite ...
