I was wondering of you guys could help me set up my GP2 for a F4 series I was gonna run. I have GP2 itself working, however I can't get any tracks into the game. I follow instructions and everything and it still doesn't work.
Without being able to see exactly what your GP2 game folder looks like, I'm going to be kind of working in the dark here, so I'm going to say the following:
- Is there a folder in your GP2 directory named "CIRCUITS"?
- If the answer is yes, that's where you put the .dat file containing the circuit you want to install.
- Once the .dat file is in the CIRCUITS folder, you have to rename it to "F1CTxx.dat" for it to show up in-game, "xx" being a number from 01 to 16 (it's important that you use two digits for the number).
- A lot of circuits need to use a specific number, which the author will make note of in the gp2form.txt file that normally comes with most downloaded tracks. This is to prevent any pit lane bugs or other anomalies.
Additional (may not be relevant) information:
Some circuits require you to install additional .jam files for them to work properly. Again, there should be instructions telling you how to install these. They tend to come in the form of .jad files and a file converter to turn them into .jams, but the converters tend not to work on newer systems. Luckily, someone over on grandprix2.de has produced one that should work, which can be found here.
I do hope this helps.
