Great to see you are reaching a very interesting number of download only a few hours after the release.
Thank you for your time and dedication to complete this mod.
I didn't test it yet, but I am sure it's a great job (Y)

Trying to DL but its saying an error -

General Error
SQL ERROR [ mysql4 ]

User grandprix4_app already has more than 'max_user_connections' active connections [1203]

An sql error occurred while fetching this page. Please contact an administrator if this problem persists.

Will it be back up later?

Interesting, I've not seen that happen before. It must be a result of my - shall we say "economical" - choice of web host. (H)

It's back up now, try again.

Yes. The no-refueling animation is just that, an animation change. It doesn't affect the actual behaviour in the game.

Might I offer up a suggestion about the hosting of the files?

Dropbox

If you uploaded the files there, and put that link on your page, then you're 'Economical' web host would not adversely affect the downloading of files.
At least I think so, feel free to correct me if I'm wrong.

As well as using it to backup my Uni work and the mods I do, I use it if I'm doing some work for only a handful people and then give them the link.
And, because you're awesome, if you decide to go the Dropbox route, I think you'll sign up via This Link so that I get some more space ;-)

The 2GB of free space is plenty for most people.

Cheers,
AUS_Doug

NickJW - I've seen your menu screen, they're very nice. But for the Central mods I prefer to focus only on the "in-game" stuff. Menu videos etc I will leave to people to add themselves.

AUS_Doug - I'm using Google Drive at the moment for some of the larger files on the site. I'll take a look at Dropbox.

Alrighty so I've just spent about half an hour doing some practices, and here are some early observations:

#1) Straight away runs A LOT smoother than last years mod; Is this a result of the changeable screen resolution, or there some lower LOD cars in here?
- If I need it to be smoother, I'll do what I did with McLaren Australia's mod: Going through and resizing all the textures to 1/2 or 1/4 size.

#2) Track order is out again. I went to drive Interlagos, but ended up at Suzuka.
- It's a little thing, easily worked around for the user, but it'd be nice.

Apart from #2, everything seems to be fine.

Excellent work, looking forward to the updates.

Cheers,
AUS_Doug

Some little things that I noticed while playing around a bit:
-2 typos in the globalvars.ini, driver section (Filipe Massa, Geido van der Garde)
-CSM previews for Nürburgring and Austin are missing, feel free to copy them from my mod, I also use the espn ones


Also I have to say that I love the cockpits you've made for this mod.



Some mods
F1 1996 | F1 2002 | F1 2007 | F1 2011 | F1 2013 | F1 2015 | F1 2018

Glad to hear that! It's all about the racing experience after all.

No lower lods - it seems most of the modders have given up on this practice. If I can ever find the time I intend to learn to do this myself so I can include them in the GP4 Central mods.

Yep. I did originally put in a fix for this and have the tracks in a 2013 order, but the new version of GPxPatch acts a little funny when it finds original tracks in a new slot. I'm still working on finding the "cleanest" way to achieve this, stay tuned...

Fixed for the next release, thank you.

Something I was wondering;
Could add an option for the 'Main view' and 'Mirror' settings like you have for 'Screen resolution'?
So that you could change to 'Trackside Objects' etc?

Cheers,

No I don't think I will add that because you can just change those in the in-game menu. No need to duplicate that function.

That's what I thought; except I can't when using a CSM mod. I've got both set to 'no objects' and I can still see all the grandstands and all the skyline buildings.
Or is this just something wrong with my PC? (again)

Cheers,
Doug

Go into gp4 without using CSM to change your in-game menu settings.

If I'm correct the flag is set in the performance file. As well as driver's name I think.




GPGSL: S8 : SCR Tester (5th) // Season 9/10 - JHR Driver | GPG Nation Cup: Monaco (S3 : 10th; S4 : 19th; S5 : 5th)
S11-14 : Mistral Team Owner | S11-14 : Mistral Team Owner .

trackmaps are also the original ones and not the ones from this mod?
