How To Get The 60 Fps Patch Running

02 May 2018 - 08:10 PM

It's pretty simple...

Get the 60fps files at SRMZ:

60fpsaiv1
http://srmz.net/inde...?showtopic=4402

60fpsv2newmod
http://srmz.net/inde...?showtopic=4584


Then you put the 60fps patch files into the following folders...

60fpsaiv1.xml
Goes into...
\Sierra\GPL\Mods\GEM+\69-extra\options
\Sierra\GPL\Mods\GEM+\GPLGT\options

60fpsv2newmod.xml
Goes into...
\Sierra\GPL\Mods\GEM+\gpl65\options
\Sierra\GPL\Mods\GEM+\gpl66\options
\Sierra\GPL\Mods\GEM+\gpl67\options
\Sierra\GPL\Mods\GEM+\gplf2\options
\Sierra\GPL\Mods\GEM+\canm66\options
\Sierra\GPL\Mods\GEM+\canm71\options

If you have problems getting the 66 GP mod running with 60fpsv2newmod, I just did this after the Full DL at the 1966 site at http://www.grandprix...6/downloads.htm
1 - Delete the "gpl66" folder from gpl\Mods\GEM+
2 - Run the "1966mod_PATCH_v2.0"
3 - Delete "gplc66.exe" from the gpl folder

And it runs fine with 60fpsv2newmod

You should enable vsync for 60fps in the GEM+ graphics options (Rasterizer button) and your graphics card setup and to make sure, in the core.ini, you should see:
[RasterV2]
VSync= 1

To take part on an race with 60fps, first you check the box in GEM+ after selecting the correct mod. Don't forget to uncheck it if you join a 36fps server!

>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

Which version you use with which mod has mostly to do with AI performance and I think the following is correct:

60FPSv1    -> 69X and GT
60fpsv2newmod   -> 65, 66GP, 67, 67F2, CA66 and CA71

However, if you never race the AI, I don't think it matters. In fact you don't ned to replace the AI ini files if you only race online.

>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

If you mismatch the right checkbox or forget to check, you won't get on the server (36 fps trying to join a 60 fps server) or get the "every 3sec flash" (60 fps joining a 36 fps server)

If you use the GPLRelay analyzer, you'll need the newest version to make sure that you can view and save 60 fps replays (v.7.91 beta I believe)

Well, maybe a little more serious than that.

I got this information from Bo Bruce over at the oAo league...

"i just got word from Dan Down's wife that he had a stroke this morning (Sunday). He is doing well..... well enough that he had his wife logon to Speedgeezers and report his absence"

Are we crazy?  You take the toughest Racing Simulation with the toughest car mod with the tires that are sooo unforgiving and have race in the rain. Nevertheless, I’m impressed by the graphics, sound and driving experience of Mosprain.

Well, unrelated to all that, I was put out of my misery mid-way through the first lap when my engine blew up after the Hairpin.  I don’t think that I was abusing the engine before that but it looks like at that moment that it blew I hit high revs. Or maybe it was just one of those random events in GPL.
