67 F2 Mod

05 January 2018 - 01:20 PM

The link to the F2 mod download appears to be down yet again. Does anyone know of a mirror where the mod can be found? I've managed to destroy the *.exe file I used at Birmingham.

Mod 65 Installation

01 January 2018 - 07:47 PM

I've been trying for a couple of days to install the 1965 mod.  I first created a player file and found the appropriate installation file. It looks like everything is proceeding normally. It appears to have installed in the right directory, but when I look at the GPL folder I see only the original and updated gpl.exe and gplc67.exe (plus an gplc55.exe mod that I installed ten days ago). There are initialization and player files for the 65 mod (gpla65.ini/driv55.ini) and the complete '65 season is set up in GEM,  but there's no gplc65.exe (which I presume the 65 mod would be named).  Clearly I've done something wrong, but what?

Any help is sincerely appreciated.

F2 Benchmark Times In Gpl Rank

19 December 2017 - 05:59 PM

In GPL Rank in the 1967 F2 challenge the benchmark times appear to be lower than the benchmark times for the same tracks in F1. At Silverstone, for example, in the F1 cars the GPL Rank benchmark is 1:30.907, but for the F2 car it's 1:29.200. That seems to me to be inconsistent with what was actually going on at that track in 1967. Hulme had the fastest lap in F1 with 1:27 and Rindt did a 1:29 in F2. I thought they might be using different tracks or different configurations of the same track, but that is not so. Brands Hatch shows a similar oddity, with an F2 benchmark almost 3.5 seconds faster than the F1.

I fear that I have not had enough wine to reason through the puzzle properly. If anyone can help before I open the fourth bottle, I would appreciate it. My wife would appreciate it even more.

The Little Golden Book Of F2

24 November 2017 - 03:47 PM

In the U.S. when a child asks us a question to which we don't the answer ("Does a flower hurt when you cut it?"), we give the kid The Little Golden Book of Flowers. It's the same drill when Susie wants to know about rocks, birds, or why she always has to knock when the door to daddy and mommy's room is closed. I need a Little Golden Book of F2, wherein I would find setups, replays, which car(s) to avoid, and how to drive them so that people won't throw rocks or birds at me, only flowers.
