Moderator's Report

Only a couple of incidents.


Server replay time: 0h00m55s

Red Zone wasn't too busy but unfortunately it was just all too tight into Eau Rouge first time.

Axel comes across Al's nose and a collision results due to an enthusiastic collision box. At the same time, JonnyO hits the rear of Al's car's box and they both spin. Carnage.

It was a shame and was because of the tight grid. A bit more care in the midfield and letting the gris string out would have helped, but hard to do off the line.


Server replay time: 0h02m53s

Sky outbrakes himself as he gets a bit close to the car in front.

My apologies for the tight grid. This was intended to be on T7 but I did not get home until 9.10 (problems on the trains) and when I did get in I was in a panic... but found that Cookie had saved the day with UKGPL8.

I should have been home at 8:15 so there was plenty of time BUT.... grumble grumble. We will take the grid into consideration when modding.

For the tight grid, it obviously has been not a problem for me starting from the front row but, in any case (if u see the replay), at the green flag I've tried to maintain my line avoiding to cut the corner to the apex at Eau Rouge and letting any faster starter keep his line.

It is true that the normal start (that I prefer) is more exciting than a rolling start, but at least in a rolling start any driver could keep his concentration on the race instead than only on a rocket start.

Theoretically anyone of us is suitable for a good standstill start but practically a good standstill start happens only a few times.

...At the last second I saw a tiny bit of something green move behind one of those giant rear wings & just floored it! ...    

I also use the Virtual Mirrors and often it happens that the flagman results hidden by the screen border because my FOV is narrow, so I've assigned a reset to default FOV button just on my Drive Force Pro drive wheel and at start I use the visual at max FOV to have an idea of what happens near my car. Only when cars are in a row then I switch to my usual small FOV.

That sounds interesting Sergio. How do you assign a button to change field of view?

No,no Paul!
This tight grid was my fault!!!
My server was planned to be the race server.
I had not controlled the grid and wich .ini is taken, before the hosting!

For the CanAms I will have a change in the track.ini with an extra loose grid!

Nevertheless, I had the impression that some drivers did not start carefully enough...

Ah OK. I am getting confused, too many series, too many servers, too many tracks and too many versions of season.ini and track.ini! It is easy to lose 'track' (pardon the pun).

Thanks anyway.

Well...inside file GPLShift.ini there is a section header called [ Zoom ].
This is mine:

  • [ ZOOM ]-----------------------------------------------------------------------
    Zoom_In_Out_Mode = 1.BUT    ;OPTIONS:    OFF    #.BUT    #.POV    KA   ;EFFECT:

                                ;OFF = ZOOM In/Out CAR view support Disabled      
                                ;BUT = You select a game device # HERE, and buttons
                                ;      below (up to 4 #) for Zoom In/Out/Reset,    
                                ;POV = Point Of View hat:                          
                                ;KA  = Keyboard ARROW Keys:                        

                                ;      Down  =  Zoom In      (back)                
                                ;      Up    =  Zoom Out     (forward)            
                                ;      Right =  Zoom Set to UserDefineFov position
                                ;      Left  =  Zoom Reset to default position (78)

                                ;--------------------------------------------------
                                ;N.B. If you have choicen POV or KA then you don`t
                                ;      need to setup any button # below            

                                ;No game device # below, ONLY buttons (up to 4 #)  

    Zoom_Out_Button = 1          ;Select a # for zoom out             

    Zoom_In_Button =  4         ;Select a # for zoom in              

    Zoom_Reset_Button = 2        ;Select a # for reset zoom to default position (78)

    Zoom2UserDefineFOV_Butt = 3  ;a # for setting ZOOM to "UserDefineFOV =" position
                                ;--------------------------------------------------
                                ;OPTIONS:          ##          ##.#        ;EFFECT:

    UserDefineFOV = 45.2        ;Field Of View in degrees: minimun 45.2 - max. 86.2
                                ;(78.0 = Default position)           

                                ;You can use the keyboards HOME key to save the    
                                ;present FOV ZOOM positions and the setting will be
                                ;uset next time you starting GPL, if you still have
                                ;enabled this [ ZOOM ] support, and will overwrite
                                ;GEM+2´s Field Of View setting
            

                                ;--------------------------------------------------

Just take care of paragraphs in RED and in YELLOW, there is the key.

Have fun !

Careful guys - too much zoom and a car alongside, is likely to help you zoom off the track ! laugh

You can still watch out beside with the pow hat of your drive wheel (if you have any). My DFP have it and I have also the TrackIR also if actually I haven't used it so often though. Anyway UserDefineFOV = 45.2 is only an example, anyone can choose his own preferred but, what you said is correct. The situational awareness is never enough.
