Re: Grip: two issues

Guys- I am not as skilled as you, but I modify the carsets that I download- so I want to ask you this. *are you referring to the "range" when you go to the little "helmet" icon in GP2edit? When I play my game- I use a much tighter window of values so that the front of the field and the back of the ...

Re: Grip: two issues

Well in the past 10 years in my absence of Gp2 i discovered something about the random grip: It works both ways. If the Random Grip is 0, the driver will always produce about the same lap time. If you give a driver Random Grip range of 938 (Schumacher '94 Microprose), it's grip will be between 1591...

Re: Grip: two issues

@RRemedio, Can you also elaborate on this multiplier for bhp? What does it do? It is just a thing from the GP2Editor calculator. For instance, if you reduce the bhp by 10, the calculated performance will be reduced by 0.24%. It seems to give accurate results for bhps above 700 but not so accurate f...

Re: Can't get the FW14 cockpit working

I think that's the way it is, otherwise, you wouldn't be able to see that menu. Once you leave the pits it gets fixed.

Re: Grip: two issues

Thanks @RRemedio for the insight. One thing I still don't understand is the problem of calculating grip. What does it have to do with bhp? As I set grip, I use the value 16384 for the best driver and work my way down for the next best driver and so on. The BHP of the cars, I try to set them as they...

Re: Grip: two issues

Very interesting thread. I'm still in interested in how to accurately set up grip range in GP2edit. I know TdK wrote in his old thread it is a secret, but if anybody else has good tips about the grip range, let me know. :-). grtz It is impossible to get perfectly accurate values but in theory, you ...

Like I said, don't use dosbox to run it. Use the Windows command prompt (right-click the Start menu button, then click Command Prompt).

Re: Can't get the FW14 cockpit working

I've made a small video. Put the files from lcdtool 1.04 and fw14bytes.txt on your gp2 folder (mine is F:/GP2)

Re: Can't get the FW14 cockpit working

Thanks man but I need directions on how to do it using DosBox i reckon as isnt that how others have done it? No, use the command prompt from windows. I got version 1.04 from the cockpit download page and got it working. Unfortunately, importing to GP2Edit won't be useful because lcdtool patches som...

Re: Can't get the FW14 cockpit working

LCDTool works. But you need to run it through the command prompt. Anyway, I only have version 1.05 and this cockpit seems to use 1.04 format which is probably different and makes the fw14bytes useless for me (if I patch it, it breaks the game, but if I patch a file generated by 1.05, it doesn't brea...

Re: Playability and realism of GP2 compared with today's games

so how is the track development work is very tiring, laborious? For beginners, it can be very hard. And even for experienced track builders, depending on the track it can be very long. A few parts are indeed very boring but that's usually not a problem. For me, it has been impossible to do anything...

Re: Playability and realism of GP2 compared with today's games

What tools do you need to create a GRAND PRIX 2 track ??? The Track Editor is the main one. You can create a new track by using only it. But to create a quality track you will also need the Jam Editor, the Object Editor is not required but it is much easier to use to create custom objects than doin...
