May give it a whirl. Brand new to Simracing, done half a dozen or so in GTR Evo league (pretty hopeless....but fun). But on break now whilst next season.

May try to install track and have a practice run or 2.

Not to get sidetracked though........nodisk anyone :?:

So, i just unpack the patch to (in my case) the desk top then copy and paste all the files into the game folder ?
:ted:
PS: Just to check i have the right patch, the one i have is nearly 44mg, does that sound right Lee

I did a post with the exact steps I took last year, but I'm buggered if I can find it.
As I remember I backed up my complete install, then ran the starfarce removal tool (I think it came with the 'patch'), rebooted and overwrote my installation with the files in the patch. There was also a sound archive (on no grip I think) which I installed to stop the looping of the sounds.

Is this the same that requires new sound files?

 I remember I tried that one, but for me after a few laps it crashed to desktop. now I just use GTL-GTR2 instead, lol.

You could try installing GTL2008Sounds.rar from NoGrip

make sure you resetup all your audio settings in game, even if you imported a saved profile.

Cant seem to find that file on nogrip. but will keep looking.

All audio seem OK.

If worst comes to worst, I'll just have to keep using disk. not the end of the world.

did you run the .bat file that comes with the patch, it expands all the audio files.

Yes, several times. Run as administrator as well. The audio files are there, I can play them on media player. Just not within the game.

In fact blow by blow.

Fresh install GTL, reboot so starforce fails due to vista, patch to 1.1, starforce removal tool, reboot, install nodisk, run bat file. GTL loads with music in menus etc. no track sounds :cry:

A tricky problem indeed :)

I wonder if it's worth having a dabble with the number of channel setting in the sound options ... some extreme values ... say 8,42 and than a sensible vale ... 16 or so.

If all else fails I'll FTP the sound pack to you tonight if you can give me a dump location (or I guess I could just up it to a file host... but it will take a while with my appalling upload speed!)

Drop me a PM if you'd like me to get the pack to you.

Thanks for the offer Pierre, I'll have a further dabble before I put you to that trouble. I thinks sound pack is on filefront, just cant check from work due to firewall. :(

Thanks again :hats off: * you too DrokK

the .bat file you are running - is this the decompress.bat that is in the GTL root directory??

assume you found this?

hmmm  :hmm: Are you guys saying you can run the No-CD patch and play online?

I tried it last reformat and couldn't connect to servers? Might have to have another look...

Yup, I ran into that last time as well but what I did to cause it was I installed GTL then immediately installed the "patch" and ran the game without CD, the game loaded fine and all however when I entered my online code it kept telling me that the code was wrong. I had to run GTL by launching it off the CD, I was then prompted for the serial, entered it, closed GTL and launched via the patch, entered online key and all was well :)

Sorted it guys, :excited:

Finally found the GTL2008sounds file, plenty of refs to it, but all links dead. Keeping file, so maybe I could upload it here somewhere :?:

Not sure how, or if it is allowed some advice would be good.

Thanks for all the help :toast:

Yes lets get it uploaded here.  This game is old, and there is no support for it.  I just wish the damned patch worked on the American version.  lol

My disc is too scratched to play, or install from, so I downloaded a torrent of pre-cracked GTL, stuck my genuine online code into it, works perfect for me! I AlfaTina with it...

I'm attempting to upload now 172mb. The DOCman applet is moving so it may work (my upload speed is only 512mbps, so it may not work)

Is that the 'GTL2008sounds.rar' file Pierre :?:

If it is I'll not upload, not that I know how to :(

I've got another file, 'sounds for cracked GTL.rar' seems to have sounds for 2 cars only, anyone know if I need it, or if it wants uploading :?:

By all means have a go at uploading Tricky (just go to the downloads section and you'll see an upload button). I got an error, but that could well be on my side. Will be interesting to see if you get the same error.
