Hi everyone,

I was seriously annoyed to discover that my latest and supposedly last GP4 Builder version was plagued with a last minute saving bug, while during all the 10+ years I developped it, it always was my first concern to be sure saved files were never broken...

So I took this whole morning to bring back Delphi, re-enter into GP4Builder code and use every trick I knew to find the save error.
Thing is, after 3 hours on it, I almost quit. Error was random, no clear pattern could be noted. Last working version was 30+ features back and I didn't want to cut more than a few features from GP4 Builder 2017 in order to bring a stable version.

And then I tried a simple thing : recovering my past saving code from last working version and only change this from the new version (that code was changed to optimize files and remove unused object names).
And guess what ? It worked...

So here is 2017B version, keeping all the features of 2017 and bringing back reliable save function.

I hope you will like this new version and at last be able to enjoy all its features now that it works correctly.

Best regards,

Lo2k

Thanks once again Laurent, I was having issues with some track updates this year when trying to save changes and I couldn't work out what I was doing differently! I'd reverted back to the 2015 version like others have mentioned. Great to see you've solved the problem

Brillant work, Laurent! The ultimate version of GP4 Builder is here! (Y)

Thank you very much for all your work as dev tools during all these years since GP4 débuts. Without you, modding GP4 so easily would have been almost impossible. So many essentials features added and almost 14 years of technical developpment and support (and not only for GP4 Builder). That's impressive for a 15 years old game! :-)

You, René and some others devs are the pillars of the GP4 community. Nothing could have been possible without you!

Merci beaucoup! :-)
