Hi, there is a way to use generic performance in mod instead of specific race performances?

Hello. I do not know if I understand correctly, however if you mean this, you can use a "generic" performance file valid for all the tracks, or a performance file suitable for each track. all this must be compiled in the GPxset.ini file inside the gpxpatch folder and, once the patch has been started, check the GPxset tab under "Performance".

The performance text file is a common file in "* .txt" format, but the compilation is a bit 'long, based on real performance of the race and many tests on GP4. In the "Performance" file you can also update the names of cars and drivers, saving the file in a format that can be loaded later by GPxPatch.


[Team #00] Name= Ferrari, Ferrari
First Driver=1,Michael Schumacher,15900,80,16500,50
Second Driver=2,Rubens Barrichello,15700,200,16300,150

In the square brackets the Team number must be indicated; after "Name" the name of the car and of the engine (not necessary); after performance you will have to report the car power values ​​in BHP respectively, from left to right, for the race and for the Qualifications, and the value of failures for the Team. Subsequently, after First Driver and Second Driver, there are the names of the drivers, with the performance values ​​for the race (left) and qualifications (right), associated with the range of skills. It must be kept in mind that the pilot's ability also influences the probability of error, or failures. This will be compiled for each team, with its characteristics.

In order to have specific performances, performances texts (and magic files) must be compiled for each track and placed in GPXpatch gpxpdata, with the GPxset and GPxtrack enabled options on the first page of GPxPatch, and the car power team dependant option activated on the second page , together with the physics file. In addition, you will have to directly compile the gpxset.ini file of GPxPatch, contained in gpxpdata. Opening the gpxst.ini file, in fact, you must enter the names of the performance files, matching them to the respective circuits.


[PerfManager] Enable=1
Path01=gpxpdata\2004_specific_melbourne_perf.txt Path02=gpxpdata\2004_specific_sepang_perf.txt

The names of the texts, of course, can be different. If instead you want to use the generic performances, you will have to create a generic text file, put it in gpxpdata (like the other performance texts) and compile the gpxset.ini file differently:

[PerfManager] Enable=

In this way, Gpxpatch will "read" only the generic text in GP4.

The Performance Text must be placed, together with any other performance texts, in the gpxpdata folder of GPxPatch so that it is saved in the GPxset.ini configuration file.

So I'll need to delete "Path 1, Path 2, Path 3" ecc... and delete the "1" from "PerfManager"? I'll try this later, thank you

Only delete the "Path 1, Path 2, Path 3", etc. the rest as the "1" stays, would look like this:

Enable =1
Path =gpxpdata\performance.txt (or generic.txt or the name you gave to your generic perf file)

Excuse me, would anyone have specific performance for the 2018 circuits? Thanks in advance.

The performance file and the physics file will be automatically inserted into the gpxset.ini, once you have checked "Performance" and "Physics" in the GPxset tab of the patch and assigned the path to the folder where you have those files.
