Targa Florio for GPL

Its out! Thanks for the heads up.

They've been working on it for about 6-7 years I believe.
Wow! How much is GPL these days? If it's cheapo-mongous I might have to get it.

Get the GPL 2004 demo and you can install mods/new tracks to it, all you miss is the original tracks, it is worth paying £5 for them anyway though

Going to have to go and get my GPL working again now...
It's been released for months now, nothing new, you have to be some-what of a no lifer to even complete a lap of this track anyway.

I'm not trolling, really, its a great effort on the track and it's nice of you to post it here but to complete a lap of this track you need ALOT of time on your hands.
ill try this one soon, never tried GPL before, but i have to get the taste of 04' demo now
44 miles? That's freakin' epic. Is there a new Isle of Man track yet btw?
I got bit of probs here..

I installed the track right, but it shows that it cant load it for some odd reason.

I can see only 1\4 part of the actual screen i should see...

Any links to patches please?

Don't get the 04 demo its well out of date now, the GPL all in 1 installer is much newer/better.

I'll try and find you a link.

Here ya go, install this over a clean GPL install...

About 38 minutes if you're very good.

Does it only work with the full version (I R a cheapskaet )

Needs a CD
Yes, it checks the presence of the original CD in the drive.
And you don't need to install GPL first, just insert CD and run the correct "Maximum Versions 0.97" installer for your GPL language (at least, I did so).

@ EliteAti
GPL install default is F1 1967 season.
Targa Florio (and other "long" circuits) breaks the original graphics engine limits, so you'll need to apply a specific 1967 patch that adds support to long tracks.

You can find it here
http://srmz.net/index.php?showtopic=4875
File inside the zip is 1967_PATCH_v1.3_Setup.exe
Don't bother with GEMP2.EXE for now.

Each mod ('65, '66, '69, etc...) has its "long track" patch.

This site has everything GPL related
http://gpltd.bcsims.com/

Have to go out now.
In a few hours I'll give you support if needed.

@ BlueFlame
much nicer now

Some GPL copies available here:

Wow, just installed the GPL 04 thing again and Targa Florio (why is everything GPL based so damn fiddly?) and what a road! Got half hour in and still hadnt finished... and the practice timer ran out cos I should have been in Training mode

Quote from BlueFlame :Watch itttttttt

:doh:

Finally finished a lap (in a 3 litre car, the Brabham, I wouldn't recomend driving the big cars, I crashed about 20 times), the track is a masterpiece! Its great when you come down from the mountains and can see the sea wide open ahead of you, its probrably the first GPL track that is actually beautiful.

I'm also very impressed with the framerates, I was expecting them to be awful.
Just did a 40.12 with the 65 Ferrari and I used reverse gear only once.
The woman in Collesano scares the sh*t out of me...
There's millions of links here and the info seems to be a bit conflicting.

I don't have any existing copy of GPL, no downloaded demo or a disc. Can someone just post links to all of the files I need so I can get my mod on?
careful. GPL is starforce infected iirc

Quote from Luke.S :careful. GPL is starforce infected iirc

Starforce hadn't reared its ugly head yet in 1998.
