Thursday Nights fun racing / TeamSpeak problems
« on: November 10, 2017, 11:50:48 AM »
We seem to be having more and more problems with TS, should we try Discord (if someone can workout how to use it)?
Is running a Discord server a big system overhead?
Should we try Gamevox (easy to use) how much does it cost(I am willing to contribute).

Thursday Nights fun racing / System crash/complete rebuild.
« on: October 20, 2017, 10:15:35 AM »
I purchased Acronis True Image , and now make a bootable clone of my hard drive on a regular basis. I only run a singe HDD which makes things easier, but I have found it invaluable. I just use USB external drives for the cloning. Only a small USB drive would be required for the SSD. It made upgrading to a new HDD a piece of cake. It also claims to be able to make a bootable clone of your HDD/SSD that will work on new hardware !!! this feature I have not yet tested.

The thought of starting a PC rebuild from scratch fills me with fear/dread/loathing !!! I feel for you Gratulin.

Cool Happy Birthday P&G (10 years anniversary!)
Back in 2006, some crazy guys formed a group to get the kind of racing simulation which many dreamed of but that no game-developer ever did, or will ever do, due to legal and logistic constraints with licenses and assets for commercial products.
There was a heavy background of Papyrus' GPL and SimBin's GTL within the group, which influenced things immensely. This last mentioned title was perfect as base of resources to materialize an idea into GTR2, the definitive platform of choice for this project.
This group of people formed a mod-team called 'GTL-Workshop', and the name chosen for the overall project was 'Power and Glory'.
The idea behind this project was to recreate the 1960s and 1970s racecars, as close as the group could, to the way they were in their glory days. Not "modern-historic" iterations but the legendary, iconic racers of that period. It was to be free to download and, later, to become as an "expansion" for GTR2, like a separate new game title.

There have been many changes and improvements through the years (three different versions, plus respective patches) but the same philosophy and care remained throughout.

It's been ten years since the very first release of P&G by the GTL Workshop mod team, back in September 2007 (yes, a decade ago!).
Happy Birthday P&G

Mod Cars / Classic Prototypes
« on: March 26, 2017, 08:19:41 AM »
This mod was recently released and if all the cars are as good as the Ferrari 330 P4 it will be amazing.


If you have already downloaded the Ferrari 330 P4 do not replace it with the updated version in this package it is not as good !!!!!!

All the other cars are excellent especially the two can-am cars.

Assetto Corsa / Assetto Corsa Sounds
« on: May 16, 2016, 01:47:19 PM »
How hard is it to take sounds from one car and use them in another car ?
I want to take the sound file from the Sierra RS 5000 and use them in an Escort Turbo because the
Escort sounds are crap.

Thursday Nights fun racing / Thursday Night proposed season.
« on: April 22, 2016, 10:55:51 AM »
I think we need to test some of these mods and not just rely on my opinions.It would also be good
if we could add some more cars to Arbath/Caterham races. Sorry Bruce I do not speak HTML.
I know I initially said no "open wheeleers" but the F1 1967 mod is a visual feast and they are quite
driveable. We can add the Renault R8 Gordini to the Arbath etc.

Please submit any car and track you would like to be included in Season 4.

Car selections to be Historic in nature and no open wheelers, at least two cars of similar performance would be good.

Tracks with elevation changes are preferred, flowing or technical.
The long race format will continue.

Is changing cars during the season an issue ?

Please submit any requests in the next 4 days.

Assetto Corsa / Why NBN and iiNet are a joke.
« on: April 02, 2016, 10:38:35 AM »
This is what I pay iiNet per month for my internet service.
NBN Fibre 2 (50/20)
 - User Name: lenore9
Monthly Charge
Billed period: 01 MAR 2016 - 01 APR 2016
Internet Total
Plus $10 per month for a voip to mobile phone service.
I live in Coffs Harbour where the NBN was initially rolled out. I have optic fibre into my unit (no copper wire).
My connection is in theory 50/20 MBS which is verified  using online speed tests. However the the best download speed
I have ever experienced is 5MBS from any location. A large file download TEST will give me 10MBS. I constantly experience
buffering with ABC iview and SBS.  Netflix is always  OK even with HD movies. I have been content to put up with the status quo
as online experience has always been excellent until last Thursday night. I had a disconnect from the server and then Teamspeak
I rejoined and was again disconnected but managed to join last race but without Teamspeak.
I am sure iiNet is using some form throttling to overcome the unmetered use of Netflix and lack of bandwith!!
My download limit on this package is  1terabyte/month.
