I play GP2 since 1996 an it still provides much more fun than all the "newer" F1-sims, thanks to the community I can almost try any year of F1 I want and that is just amazing. At work you can also win using the keyboard and this is great.

I also did works for the following games:
GP2, Indycar Racing (1 & 2), NASCAR Racing (1, 2, 3, 2001, 2003), TOCA II, Unreal Tournament (UT, UT2003, UT2004) and some other

I first tried Grand Prix 2 at age 9 in 1996, when my friend bought it. I got it for my 10th birthday in '97 and played endlessly since. In 2002 I discovered modding and have tried my hand at creating custom cars but I am no artist :lol: I did not play much between 2004 and 2006 but this year I am planning on playing again!

starting patching gp2: since 2000

the first car i made was the toyota am01. well it was no great success but good enough to keep on working.
in summer 2006 i had to quit with gp2 because there were much more other things in my life which where more important. but finally i solved all these problems and so i'm proud to say that i'm back :D

Might as well bump this since I'm pretty sure I disappeared from wherever the last forum was long enough ago that I won't be remembered.

Been playing off and on since 1997, mostly off lately since I've had a few, err... compatibility problems with the game since I got this computer a couple years back.

Age: 26
work: finishing mechanical engineering this year, working in project engineering office at BASF (car paint factory)
hobbies: gp2, chess, playing football and tennis, (unfortunately dont have enough money to race karts or anything, otherwise you bet I would)

I began playing Gp2 in 1998 more or less, I had a lot of F1GP experience so I learnt rapidly
Then when I began using Internet I began downloading Gp2 stuff and... :D :D discovered the best game ever (actually I like driving PS2 GT4 and GP4 more, but those are not as easy to custom as GP2)
Since last year I have no Computer so I built a "Frankenstein" Pentium I and began playing GP2 again thanks to that.

Now Im raising some cash to buy a new Pc and play GP2 in a decent SVGA res, like never before :D

Right then, my GP2 story? QUite simple...
Been playing it since xmas 1996 (i think) when my sister gave it to me as an xmas present.
I still remember opening the wrapping paper, then foaming at the mouth like an escaped lunatic in excitement!
Practically ran through every closed door in the house to switch the PC on, installed the game, double clicked the GP2.exe, and then THAT music and engine noise began...

WOW, what a game. Have tried others namely GP3 and though graphics were a lot better, for sheer enjoyment and ability to alter the game to your own specifications, nothing compares to GP2.

As a 31 year old who runs their own business, I really shouldn't be playing this game. I should be taking care of my customers, getting new ones etc.
But let me ask you this.....

I always wanted to play handball HF.
No-one play's it in this country near where I live.

Besides, if I were to play it I wouldn't last 2 seconds now as I recently stopped smoking after over 10 years! Gotta give the lungs a chance first!
