Re: dosbox ece or dosbox svn daum..

It has been a few years, and I heard about dosbox X, and dosbox staging.... I tried dosbox X, and for some reason it runs slower for me... the processor occupancy stays below 100%, but the time to complete a lap longer than in real life. I tested Michael82's Monaco - where on screen cockpit times sh...

Re: Steering Wheel Problem

F7 driver help.....? I remember there are help options for driving, but I can't remember which that is.... I use 'opposite-lock' help, so I can catch the car easier in a spin. The point here is to enjoy the game- regardless of your settings. If you're having fun who cares if you cheat. It's not like...

Re: Steering Wheel Problem

gp2 is very hard with a wheel and pedals- but very satisfying

Re: graphics backwards on the rear wings of cars

I figured this out- increasing the RCR distance in the gp2lap config fixes it. I tried 20000 for the rear-incar SVGA setting and it was enough. I will try lowering it a little at a time until I see if the problem comes back.

Hopes this helps someone in the future

Re: graphics backwards on the rear wings of cars

guys - is this what the "rcr draw distances" are for?

Re: graphics backwards on the rear wings of cars

2 years later - still hoping for an answer...

I think this has to do with the car graphics going from 2d to 3d... if we could make this process start earlier (while the car is still at a greater distance from you) maybe that might work?

graphics backwards on the rear wings of cars

I'm sure you guys have all seen this. When you are following a car, sometimes the graphics appear backwards on the rear wing at certain viewing positions. Mostly as the car moves from your left or right, it appears correct, and then backwards depending on viewing angle. Has anyone found a fix for th...

Re: Human Fuel Magic Data for each slot

Here is how I do it: First I get sufficiently good at practicing on a track, and I know the line around the track well I concentrate on my setup. By then my fuel usage is repeatable. I do a test race with 2 stops. Let's say for sake of example, the race is 60 laps. The car will run 3x 20 lap stints....

Re: A new track ?

Let me say - I know Michael built Monza '84 a while ago but I just raced at that track in my '84 season and I am watching the real race on video (I downloaded a torrent of everything from 1980 to 2001). This work you did Michael is amazing. The sponsors and all of the little details are spot on. I'm...

new dosbox options in 2023??? (alternative dosbox-x instead of ECE)

Has anyone seen the version of dosbox called "dosbox x"? I have been using ECE to play gp2 for years, but now I see ECE has reached end of life and many people have moved to dosbox-x...

have any of you tried it?

Hi mate . I have also found the paul hoads track editor for gp3 . Does it also alter the pit stop strategy in gp3 as in gp2. Do you know anything about that ? :-k :-k
I know nothing about gp3... I bought it and played it only a handful of times, but nothing like gp2.

Re: Pit stops in 50/100 race distance

Wait - I've always changed the CC's pitstop strategy via the Paul Hoad track editor.... is this not a good way to do this? With the track editor it has an option that you can set likelyhood of 1, stop, 2 stop or 3 stop....

Re: Pit stops in 50/100 race distance

Do you mean running half distance races? I've never tried it- I've always done 100% length... but won't the opponents strategies still be the same- just shorter stints?

Re: New tracks & carsets - Michael82

I changed the physics for this carset (in the excellent gp2magic) in order to force the car to brake a little bit sooner. (Change "brake distance" from the original value 22000 to 16000 maybe) It seems more realistic. I'm interested in this- I would like to make the cars a little slower in corners ...
