Hi all.

Olaf is at it again and here is a pitstop patch which refuels manually

As long as the arm is raised the car will be refueled. Fill rate is approx 4,75 l pr second.

Find it in the first post under patch download. Its part of the dg patch package  but also works as a standalone.

This sounds great. I have used Lee's patch for a long time and find it useful in qualifying to be able to fill up and leave the pits on warm tyres.

Is Olaf's new patch compatible with none DG servers. (Can I activate the patch and join the oAo server and just have the refuel option)?

Finally a "Splash and Dash" becomes an option if you underestimate fuel load for a race.

Thanks in advance

Yes John , this is supposed to work independently like Lee`s patch so activate in GEM and off you go is the idea.

Tested it offline , worked just fine.

Yes, Thanks Dag.

Just tried it independently of the DGP and Lee's patch. It's fantastic. (Should have read the readme before asking stupid questions). ;) :withstupid:

You can watch the fuel load increase in screen and just lower your arm when you have enough. It even allows you to refuel past the figure in the set up screen. (And that does bring me to a small bug)...

It also allows you to refuel way past the limits of the car. (The Brabham doesn't handle well at all with 120g squeezed into the tank). :D

But overall this is brilliant.

Lol , that sounds like a lot of fuel..

Olaf`s stuff usually is brilliant and this patch is probably no exception. Havent tried a refuel myself yet but I will be sure to test it soon. Could be useful with surprise stops early or late , change of strategies etc.

The Link is in the 1st Post (Page 1) - dirtgear8.zip

The zip contains several folders.

inside "BrakeBalance_Refuel" are a number of files. "Refuel_var.xml" needs dropping in your Gem+/Options folder. (Or one of the other files if you want Brake Bias adjustment as well).
