Copy and pasting between carshapes

Post by rremedio » 09.04.2012, 22:43

Hey guys!

Please test if this tool works on your system. BACKUP YOUR GP2.EXE!

http://www.mediafire.com/?uzgmzdy5cpfc4fj

Win98 version here -> http://www.mediafire.com/?136x2jr8c0hmv2h

Info missing on the readme:

- Sometimes it creates a shape with wrong parameters for points 59 and 60 or 253 and 254. If it happens, just edit them on the car editor.

- Car 2 won't be displayed correctly on the car editor, but will be correct ingame.

If you are thinking what's is this about, just look and this picture:

Yes it works well! =D>
I've tried to put together LeMans closed carshape with a GT carshape and seems good! No need to edit numbers...

Now we can play ALMS or ELMS season with almost right shapes...thank you!

It works great without any problems! Finally this is possible, especially useful in my "mixed"-carsets with teams and drivers from several era, but also when specific shapes are needed too, superb =D>

Thank you very much Roberto! It is a very good surprise!
Now there are lots of possible combinations!
I created a shape with the mclaren 1989 and 1993 ;) The problem is just the width of wheels.
I found no bugs in win xp but on win 98 there are a error and shapecopy.exe stops.

Thank you guys! It's good to know it's working.

I've been thinking about doing it for long time since Greyhead has released his Excel sheet with the points list for GP2 carshapes. Finally I've had a try and it worked since the first attempt.

The program won't work in Win98 as it was written in Ruby and Ruby can't run in win98 (at least my Ruby version, I'm trying to create a Win98 working version with oder Ruby version). I don't have Visual Basic 6 anymore, which would work on any Windows version, would generate a smaller .exe and with a better user interface (creating a Windows interface with buttons and fields on my current setup would build an exe with almost 40mb).

It keeps creating shapes with wrong parameters on my system, so I think you'll also have this problem sometimes. It was written in less than 30 minutes, so maybe this bug can be fixed in the future.

Despite the bugs, I won't be working on this for a while, unless you guys come with some request I can look to.

Ok, please test the Win98 version on the first post. It worked on my virtual machine (won't work on Win7 64bits, can't say about other operating systems).

"The output.dat file is the final carshape which you have to export to Gp2 from the car editor." Uahah I took 20 minutes to understand this stupid thing :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: ](*,)
