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)

I've just finished setting up everything to run in 60fps if desired. All I can say is wow! What at amazing difference! I'm ready at this point to choose that we run all our races using the 60fps patch :-) Thanks Bob, for putting this information together. Much appreciated!

sounds good guys !
I tried it a couple of times and it was another leap forward. Latency of view and feel seem to sync better or something
