I look forward to the day when I know the ring forward and backwards.

My respect to anyone crazy enough to drive the ring backwards. I have driven a bit in reverse when I span & had no idea where I was going or the correct direction of travel until I saw a car coming towards me.
Stunning drive by Andreas.

My first full laps of "The Ring Reversed" last night and I think I knew which corners were coming next. For me it was more about the distances between the corners and the different radii through the corners.

In the conventional direction, I am comfortable with many of the major corners and subconsciously know which ones can be entered quite quickly planning to scrub off speed to cope with where the corners tighten. What surprised me most was how long some corners were!! In the reverse direction, one or two corners appeared to be twice as long as I remembered them and others that I would take flat out I had to treat with much more respect. Also, the way that crests and cambers affect various corners was fun too.

I was enjoying the BRM, as a big beast to muscle around this track and a chose a setup from my archives ( Amaroo!! but I have no idea why??!!). Unfortunately ( like one or two others it seems ) for some reason, my graphics for GPL are not fun. I had to turn Prib off to get the frame rate above 30FPS and even then was lucky to see 50FPS when driving alone. I had the detail down to 75%, turned off smoke,dust etc. In fact I used every trick that I knew to reduce the graphics load. Eventually I just had to quit before I made myself ill.

It is difficult to describe what I was experiencing but it was inducing a feeling like motion sickness. The graphics were not at all smooth, almost like a fast moving series of still photos.
I wonder if something has changed with my graphic card settings? Also I looked on GEM afterwards to see what the settings were.
I noticed that some setting were now zero  (MIP size, Lod Bias, Toss Mips etc) I am ( almost) sure that these used to have something other than a "zero" value, but it is a long time since I have looked at these things.

Does anyone have a basic set of parameters for the GEM settings on Rasterizers, Graphics etc so that I can check my settings.

Thanks Mate. Also was my first trying of the Ring in Reverse. It is indeed like some corners are faster but others are sure slower. Not easy to adapt. May someone know about Sabine Schmitz, aka "Königin der Nordschleife". She tryed that reversed direction in Reallife the other day and said it about the same: A new good track to learn!

Also my Congratulation to Dean for the fastest lap!

Seems that I can´t get the replay?

I don't know why but I couldn't connect to the server using 60fpsv1 after several tries.
It seems I can only connect with 60fpsv2new.

I had the same issue with mod66 using 36fps.

Of course, I deactivate the other options in GEM+ but it doesn't work.

Any idea ?

Should I desinstall all options in GEM/Mods/options and reinstall them ?

Clive the 69x is still the most demanding mod for the hardware, it uses lots of RAM and the cars are very detailed.
Maybe you should do what I proposed in the Aznom thread to Lalethor and look at the plot of the Open Hardware Monitor...  

David, can you run 69x in single race mode with RVtracks and 60fpsV1?
The other GEM+ options do not disturb your connection as long you chose the right 60fps patch Wink

Andreas the rpy is just uploading...

Have this settings: MIP size 256, Lod Bias -75, Toss Mips 0, Mirror Size 512.

You could connect the 69xmod with 60fpsv2new?

No...

This is the current situation on my PC

Mod65 : OK with 60fpsv2newmod. Blocked on main menu (green button doesn't work) for all other options 36fps, 60fpsv1 and v2

Mod66 : same as mod65

Mod67: same as mod65

Mod69X : CTD with 60fpsv2mod. Blocked on main menu for other options. so I cannot race with 69X...

Mod66 CanAm : same as mod65

ModF2 : same as mod 65

ModGT : same as mod69X

David, it is ok,

we race with

- 60fpsV2newmod - 65,66,67,67F2,CA66,CA71

- 60fpsV1 - SportsCars + 69X

Maybe your season.ini's are corrupted (never sort them in GEM-track-manager for directory name!!!)
