Not really Rfactor was build with modding in mind where as GPL was never made to be modified. If this is a good or bad thing is for you to decide but RF got much more mods and tracks due to that. The 1979F1 mod and the Group C mod are must haves as far as I am concerned. Sadly that is about as far backwards in time as cars go. There is 1937 mod but that has an odd lean mechanic that drives me nuts so I cant drive it.

If Bruce let's us hold the server hostage for a week during the summer break, I'm up to organize it.

How can you start from the long straight ?
Open the track.ini and change the pitbox setting,
Look for the line
stall_0 = 71359 -27 ;gas station start 62781 8.3
The first number is the longitudinal distance from the start finish line in meters, the second the later from the tracks center line. Everything past the semicolon isn't read by GPL

You need to figure out how far along the lap you want to start and just plug the number into the file. Works for any other place on the track as well, problem is that you can materialize in a wall, nothing a shift-r cant cure.

Looking at the file the "gas station start" may even be at the start of the long straight. Try changing the 71... to the 62.... and see what happens.


&nbsp;&nbsp; I second Claudio for making Targa a fixed race, we could ask that drivers to change cars each time or maybe the fastest driver in the slowest car etc...<br />

Thirded, we had Targa in the championship one year. Bit of a 3 stage rally type event with 3 hotlaps making up the final result. Though I prefer to run the track with the GT cars with others on the track. It doesnt even need to be a points paying race, just an annual fun event would be fine. That way you can open it to the wider GPL community, seeing that we only had 11 runners, there is plenty of space.

That was a a fun one, grats to all managing to get a time in and GT dont think I could have beaten him even without the 3 offs on my fastest lap.

My first lap was a bit ragged mostly because I had the brake bug strike early on and never really could commit to go 100% into the corners with that in the back of my mind. Also I got stuck behind Don for a km or two.
Lap 2 was better didn't really care if I crashed since I had a lap in already. Even managed to catch some air across the mountains when I had to decide if the end of a wall or the precipice would be better for the car. Unfortunately the pace of the second lap was much higher than the first and I had to stop for fuel along the way. looking at the replay all in all I'm lost 45s with those escapades. But I'm quite happy that the only Shift-R was for fuel only.

Andrew I've to say I'm impressed that I only caught you after 3/2 laps, given the MkIV is not the car one wants at Targa, well done Sir.

Still cannot use my g27 shifter yet, I am using Fairshift, the program recognized the shifter and I assigned the buttons but still no luck; readme says to change paddles assignements to KP+ and KP- where in heck am I supposed to change theses values ?

I'm using GPLShift with the G27 on Win7 not sure if that still works with Win10 if you are using that version. But I'm can help you set it up if you want. Shouldn't take more than 10 minutes.
