Good start, made up two places on the way to the ocean, hung onto Michiel for a bit until a spin led Ed past. About 10 laps in the engine starts to cough heading into the final turn, completed the lap I was on and parked the car. That's three out four races DNFed :(

I dont know what the problem is but I recommend moving the monacane folder to a safe location outside the GPL directory and installing the track from scratch.

Hmm... I need help.  I have the correct Monacane folder in tracks (as used a couple of seasons ago), but GEM doesn't recognise it.  I manually added it as an event to my season67.ini, but I still can't see it in GEM or GPL.

Sounds like you are missing files in the monacane folder. IIRC the install requires you to move the monaco.dat file to the monacane folder and rename it to monacane.dat. Consult the readme that comes with monacane for details. If all fails report back and we'll take it from there.

Imagine how cool the Isle of Man Mountain Course is going to be if Dundrod is this impressive.

Well , here is how its used in HIES. I scan the rpy cause there is no way in hell Im gonna sit down and review a full rpy for all contacts without it. We look at all contacts and hand out penalties accordingly regardless of wether or not someone has handed in a protest. We have a group who looks and evaluates and the reaction is usually an avarage of the stewards views. Penalties are standard stuff like in real life racing.

If a contact espacpes gpl_protest then the driver gets away with it (lucky) cause it wont be looked at unless its discovered by accident. But in HIES we are also mostly from the this side of the pond with the exception of Doni so we have on avarage a lower ping rate and so far this program has picked up absolutely everything without exception. But Ive noticed that there has been some anamolies with it in oAo wich (without having a clue) I think is due to a lag effect of some sort.

So in short it serves as a tool for finding and reviewing contacts post race for jugdement and such. In oAo its strictly not needed except for adding stats wich could possibly be rewarded with some coins or some such at the end of the season but it looks like it migth not be a 100% precise as it has been so far in HIES. Why I dont know but my money is on a lag effect due to higher ping rates on avg.

What the program doesn't do is watch for unsafe rejoins or any other behaviors not resulting in contact. For contacts it's a nice tool to have as a prescreener.
