Fun run: GPL 67 at Watkins Glen (Boot Classic)
« on: April 23, 2019, 11:19:20 PM »
10 lap sprints.

Track: https://www.racedepartment.com/downloads/watkins-glen-international.20204

Pay attention to the installation instructions on RD:

*********IMPORTANT*********
 This track uses a custom shader by @Stereo. Because of this the the archive folder structure is different than previous versions. If you use Content Manager then you can just install it like any other mod. If you do not use Content manager make sure you copy the 3 folders shown here to the main assettocorsa folder.

 

Car pack:

The GPL '67 mod can be downloaded HERE. Link updated for 2.20.
The GPL mod has special installation notes for the Lotus 49 and Ferrari 312, which is to copy the original AC .kn5 file for these 2 cars into the GPL folder:

Quote
Installation Notes: Unpack to:  ...\SteamLibrary\SteamApps\common\assettocorsa\content\cars 
 
NOTE ON INSTALLATION OF THE LOTUS 49: 
You need the original kunos Lotus 49 install file:
1. Extract folders content and texture to your AC install: ...\SteamLibrary\SteamApps\common\assettocorsa\
2. Goto …\SteamLibrary\SteamApps\common\assettocorsa\content\cars\lotus_49
3. In this folder: Copy the lotus_49.kn5 file
4. Within \cars folder, goto \ gpl67_lotus_49 5. Paste lotus_49.kn5 here!   

NOTE ON INSTALLATION OF THE Ferrari 312: You need the Ferrari DLC pack from steam:  https://store.steampowered.com/app/675590/Assetto_Corsa__Ferrari_70th_Anniversary_Pack
 
Ferrari 312 install file:
1. Extract folders content and texture to your AC install: ...\SteamLibrary\SteamApps\common\assettocorsa\
2. Goto:  ..\SteamLibrary\SteamApps\common\assettocorsa\content\cars\ ks_ferrari_312_67
3. In this folder: Copy the ferrari_312_67.kn5 file
4. Within \cars folder, goto \ gpl67_ferrari_312

Edit:
here's the whole thing, files to copy included:
https://www.dropbox.com/s/cajt5gq53legv8s/ac_gpl67.zip?dl=0

unpack to [AC]/content/cars


----------------------

Funny...they could have just packed the whole thing up so there's no need for special instructions.  Two measly files to copy.   And then instead of stating what to copy and where, they write 4-5 steps.
These guys aren't into IT, are they? :)

i.e. the copy instructions "translated" to easy human readable format:

all copy instructions refer to the folder
Code: [Select]
[SteamLibrary]\SteamApps\common\assettocorsa\content\cars\
Within the above library here, copy :
Code: [Select]
lotus_49\lotus_49.kn5   =>  gpl67_lotus_49\lotus_49.kn5
and
Code: [Select]
ks_ferrari_312_67\ferrari_312_67.kn5  =>  gpl67_ferrari_312\ferrari_312_67.kn5

I imagine they're not allowed to package up original AC content into their mod, especially as the Ferrari is DLC.

Oh...right, the fezza is a dlc.  Altho it does not explain the other.
Well, we all have the dlc so the link is up above.   I will remove it once we have the season underway.

Just finished spamming the lap charts.
A base setup for all cars is on sTracker.
For anyone who doesn't have pTracker, request and I'll post here. ;)

Just had a look at the server lap times...well, seems like AB156 has got everything under control.
I have to try the Eagle. It looks like it's pretty competitive. Didn't even know there ever was an Eagle.
Does anyone know the size of the steering wheel in these guys?

I don't mind sharing mine if people want, just that a lot of the time people have said they don't suit them and its only me who can drive them so I sorta stopped posting them as much

Would like to try your base set for the Ferrari Dave, and I usually get on fairly with your sets Phil.  ;) thx guys Dave O.
NEVER TOO OLD TO RACE ... being competitive can be a PROBLEM though.

Thanks Dave and Phil, all (setup) donations greatly appreciated.

I might not end up using the setups of others but I usually find something in each one that I can use. Be it gear ratios, ride height, camber etc. I am a bit of a numpty when it comes to setups.
