    GPL Install 2015 Guide

    There has been little change from the last instructions to install GPL

    I understand if those who want to try GPL give up, because you have to really search the web for help. If you find the solution to one thing...you must continue the search for the next problem. Actually, maybe because GPL is old,1998
    One thing that teased pretty much, normally used D3D patch (today new D3Dv2) but it would only give 20fps. If you use Alt+M could give 5 more...but too little, especially when in the old days could reach 36fps (without using the 60fps patch)...& to my big surprise, with OpenGLv2 it came back at 36fps.
    *2017/2018 Update* After countless updates for Windows 10, you can try again with D3Dv2

    GPL Install: Windows 8.1 & 10 x64 - NVIDIA
    1: Download GPL & Mount PowerIso to CD - or if you have CD, throw it in your drive & Stop auto install. CD don't work alone anymore from XP & up to now
    2: Run GPL Install 1.08 beta, tested & works perfect (Don't use the old GPL 0.97 Install)
    3: Copy your player profile (if you still have your old profile)
    4: Install GEM+ iGOR (but not to Program Files C:\GEM\GPLSecrets
    5: Install 4GB Patch
    6: Install gplrast_v2.5 (V2 rasterizers)
    7: Update Pribluda to v1.1.2.1 - Copy 'enablepribluda.XML' in here: C:\GEM\GPLSecrets\GEM+\Options *Attached + Fix*
    8: Install GPLshift0790…but, only if you want to use H-Shifter (GPLShift can cause faster gear changes & banned in some Leagues) FairShift
    9: Install GPL67 Patch v1.3*
    10: Copy '60fpsv2newmod.XML' in here: C:\GEM\GPLSecrets\GEM+\Options
    (*60fpsv2newmod can only be used after you have installed GPL67 Patch v1.3)


    Finish

    Start GEM+2 & select Open GL V2
    Remember: Enablepribluda...& If the server requires 60fps



    Q: Help, I have no GPL CD but would like to try.
    A: You can try to download a Demo from 2013, made of F1Legends & maybe find the track you miss in the link at the bottom.
    Q: In old days we always used WinVROC, but no help here ?
    A: When you start GEM+ you can choose whether you want to use VROC or iGOR & here are many more options, for example, to activate 60FPS & not much happens in VROC more.

    A good place to pick up everything you need: SMRZ
    ...& to test if everything works, download the new Spa67. You may be thinking back to the original Spa in GPL, many thought it was boring...it's certainly not more. This is a great experience, but a little more tricky.
    My time on the original track: 3:13...on this: 3:18...with the old Eagle setups. The man behind the wheel of the video runs about 3:25 in Ferrari

    You can jump to 6:40 in the video to watch a full lap


    To run online, press Gem+ 2 & if you choose VROC...maybe you're unlucky VROC can't find your GPL.exe & you have to help a Little.


    ...& use this option


    Are you having trouble with iGOR? Go to folder: \GPLSecrets\iGOR & open config file, you may need to change in IP
    [RaceListServers]
    IP = blw.net

    Server is because you don't have this track
