Hello RACER!

And another year is almost over.

As the new year 2018 is getting closer
the GPLRACER admins would like to know
what you think as we have to plan and decide for next year.

Please post your ideas and proposals for 2018 regarding



Tracks
------
Which ones?
Real/Fantasy?
Road/Airfield/Oval/City/...?
Short/Long tracks, ...?


Mods/Cups
---------
Which ones?
65 cup maybe on Tuseday again as a full year season with 18 races, or split into two short cups in the first and second half of the year?
A second cup maybe on Sunday again?
Split the Sunday cup into two cups, maybe 2 different short cups on Sunday?
A mixed mod cup?


Mods for GPL:
- 1955 F1
- 1965 F1
- 1966 F1
- 1967 F1 (original Papyrus)
- 1967 F2
- 1969 Extra F1
- 1967 GT Sports Cars
- 1966 Can-Am
- 1971 Can-Am
- Thunder Cars
- Stratos Mod (RX)
- Night Mod (N65/ N67)


Race days
---------
Again cup 1 on Tuesdays every two weeks?
Again cup 2 on Sundays every two weeks?


Rules
-----
German: http://gplracer.eu/regeln.html
English: http://gplracer.eu/rules.html


Race distance
-------------
Atm we have around 45 minutes for a cup race.


60 FPS patch
------------
If 60fps worked across the board in GPL GPLRACER would support it. But you have to use different patches for different mods and even then some functions in GPL do not work properly. Too much faffing around for little gain and it may exclude some with low spec hardware.

Days/Time - Weekdays - Tuesday and Thursday evenings ok for me at current race time.

Weekends - No Saturdays. I can make most Sundays but sometimes I have to work. Current race time ok.


Duration - 45 mins race is all my eyes can do concentrating on a monitor.

Tracks
------
Mostly real tracks. 1/10 may be fantasy.
I favour a combination of technical tracks and fast tracks. At least one Oval lachen
------

Mods/Cups
------
Okay, so, here's the deal:
Next year it is very likely that I am only able to participate in the first few races of the 1965 mod. From March on I will go on internship somewhere with irregular schedules, and much of it will probably be in the evening. So it looks to be my last competitive season in 65 season this year traurig

I expect Sundays to be free so it would be great to have something good for that day for me.
A mixture of mods is something I always considered fun to do and I'll say it again here freuen

And if not, PLEASE NO F2 MOD ON SUNDAYS. And neither the Stratos Mod.
I think ThunderCars would be great fun to try. And with the fully powered cars. Advanced Trainer is for p***ys ;P
------

Rules
------
Nothing to add.
------

Race distance
------
45 minutes is fine by me.
------

60 FPS patch
------
Always have been a supporter on it. I think the least chances of failures are on original Papyrus tracks, so an idea to test it those tracks first.
------

So yeah, what else?
Just want to say it is a shame I cannot be fully participating next year for the 65... Don't know if it will change much the year after, but we'll see freuen

GPL is a drug. And I'm an addict.

Sorry to hear that Yannick but I am sure you will be back zwinkern

It has been interesting and satisfying watching your GPLRACER career, going from a bit of a hooligan at first to one of our safest and most consistent drivers. You will be missed.

Best wishes for your real career.

Well, I would consider myself as one of our safest drivers... (*cough* Oulton F2 *cough*), but yeah, few years back I was far worse.
The progression is significant (character-wise, I may also add) and I do like looking back on how things have developed.
I'll miss the Tuesday races and the people I raced against.
But hey, Sundays are still there, we can still make the best out of it there.

So yeah, thanks for the good times freuen

Tracks
------
I like all types of racetracks. But I hope next season there will be one oval in calendar. I want to see one of Ginetto's flat short ovals (Trenton, Langhorn, Phoenix).

Mods/Cups
---------
I think we can have two 'Tuesday' championships instead of one long.
Next year I like two see 69Extra mod, 67F1 new mod (carset 7; no numbers on cars in multiplayer doesn't bother me). Also I like 1966 Can-Am mod. At least I would like to have few fun races with this mod.

Race days
---------
Current race days suits me well. On thursdays I have races in other sim leagues (NR2003) so it will be good for me if GPLRACER will keep races on Tuesdays and Sundays.

One request: don't put race on last Sunday in May, there will be Indy 500 and I can't miss it freuen

Race distance
-------------
45 minutes is enough

60 FPS
------
60 fps is nice, but it increases chances for some problems. I'm not sure if we realy need it.

60fps patch and add-on tracks can give problems when there are gaps in the track, causing mass screenfreezes...at oAo we run original tracks at 60fps (no prob at all), and add-on tracks at 36fps.

Because I race less and focus more on original 67 now I haven't been racing here last season. Nothing to do with GPLRACER, you're a great bunch of guys! freuen

I tried 60fps race last night at Reims with 55mod.

I had stutters at the hairpins. My system could not hold a steady 60fps.

The previous Sunday I raced the same cars at the same track with 36fps. No stutters and a solid 36fps all the way.

There are lots of fans of 60fps but I am not one of them. Maybe if I can afford to upgrade my rig then it is possible but for now it does not work for me.


In game I have everything maxed out and my Nvidia setting are set to high quality because I like eye candy.


AMD Phenom @ 3.8ghz
GTX 1050ti
8gb DDR3 1600mhz
1680x1050 resolution ( reduced from 1920x1200 native )

I have Vsych set to "fast" and do not see the tearing and "slide show" effect that others complain about with 36fps.

I had a freeze yesterday on the very first lap (in practice eveything was OK). But previously at Zandvoort I raced with no issues at all.
Still I agree, 36 seems more reliable to me. Though, Robert's suggestion is also good.

with Reims you picked a bad example anyway.

Also don't use vsync with 60fps, it sort of kills the purpose of the 60fps.

and even though this should be a given in this day and age: check if the monitor is set to 60Hz and not some "default" (I assume it's a 60Hz monitor cool , I don't want to kill any pre-Y2K monitors lachen )
[really this is a non-issue or non-hint and 60Hz or Default or what not should not cause any issues. I just mention it for having mentioned it. freuen ]

55s specific: didn't they mention in the manual, that the 55s are somewhat heavy on the machine? anyway from my experience (... driving 55s with 60fps ...) it should not cause massive problems..
[again a non-issue freuen ]

and again. 60fps imho has really nothing to do with "accelerating freezes". If anything it would help against freezes. If freezes increase, I'd suggest it is more mod related.
Other leagues use 60fps with the 67s (!) for an increasing number of years (yes, years not months) with not statistically relevant increase or decrease in freezes (again, can only propose this regarding with the 67s).
wouldn't you agree that these leagues would have discontinued 60fps long time ago if it would repeat causing significant problems? freuen

If GPLRACER wants to continue using 36fps - fine.
I just like to countersteer some arguments so that no "urban legends" spread (imho!) zwinkern

[but please, I don't want to make you shy away from reporting problems, it's the only way to make progress and get to understand where 60fps might be useful and where it might be hurtful. freuen For eample, if people would keep reporting freezes etc. with the 65s or 55s then at some point it would be afair assumption to not run the 65/55 with 60fps. freuen ]

Thanks for the info Fabian.

I know some leagues do use 60fps for originals and 36fps for addons, but that is the problem with 60fps in general. I would not want to constantly tick and untick the patch.

If there was a 60fps patch that worked for all mods in all situations I would support it but there are different patches for different mods, the AI do not work with it, and it seems at best no more stable than 36fps online, possibly worst with addon tracks.

The jury is still out freuen
