I have been waiting forever to race this game with the full league!  I cannot wait!  See you guys this weekend.

I love you GTLW!

 So far, I merely took the Lotus Cortina one lap on the Nordshlieffe......

 Wow. Just. Wow.

Hello everybody, sorry for the late reply.
Thank you all for the nice comments.

For the installation problems.
The 1st option of the installer tries to find a GTR2 as original as possible, the 2nd option too but can go over some "changes". So it is necessary that you use a gtr2 installation as original as possible .If you have put mods on it, or changed any files the installer will block himselft because he can't garantee an online stable version.

So if nothing else works, do a new gtr2 installation and try again.

the 3rd option will probably not care and install the mod anyway on top of GTR2. It will be very unstable on online racing, both for you and for the other clients and it might give unpredictable results on offline too if you have mods that conflict with P&G.

Hope that helps, for any doubts ask I'll be watching :)

 Having a blast with this today. Love it.

 The first, I admit, I installed it, intended to play it more as I loved it but never did. Probably between, just having gotten GTL, GTR2 and then trying to sort rFactor, just too much at once. I got overwhelemed.

 So, the P&G cars got dusty,  tires lost air, brake lines corroded and gathered condensation, rotors and drums rusted, oil turned to sludge and small rodents took up residence in the interiors and engine bays and feasted upon the wiring and fibres.

 So, now, I have more time and once again have opened the warehouse door and Oh my, nice shiny restoration of these proud steeds. Yup, gonna wring them out this time. Conjure up the spirits of Whizzo Williams and others and remember when race cars required REAL drivers!

well, starting from your wheel, use 900 degrees of rotation, then in the garage setup, use from 30 to 34 degrees of steering lock. Only for cars with a very short wheelbase (like the abarth) I suggest using something less like 24-28.

Stick with the default setups, they are quite neutral and not too difficult, but start with cars that have a good power for their grip. I suggest starting with the abarth, alfa gta, alpine 1.3 and move up from there. Stay away for starters from the big block corvettes, cobras and gt40s

Driving style and tecnique is where you need to focus. Brake soon, VERY soon. Don't look at the asphalt braking points because they are made from the modern gtr2 cars. For starters brake before them and enter the turn slowly. Remember to blip the throttle everytime you downshift a gear.
Inside the turn, have patience and start accelerating when you see the exit.

Start this way, and build up speed... there is lot's to learn but I can garantuee you it will be rewarding :)

I tried several cars with 900 degrees of rotation, but it just always felt wrong, and couldnt in anyway react fast enough, especially since i use high FFB.. So what im doing is 720degrees with full lock, seems to work ok.

What a great mod! Even though i was in beta im still surprised with the attention to the smallest detail starting from game UI, going to tire behaviour, Stunning, amazing job, hard to believe we get it all FREE!

I really wish you guys get all the credit for this you deserve, i know ive been trying to spread the word of this great mod just about everywhere.
:)

Merry christmas, and thanks for your huge efforts on this!

Really special present, thank you guys for all efforts.

I've just jumped in/out from server to check it my installations (clean) and its all work perfectly.
It was Monza on server and I picked Vette (the most powerful one) ........  :yep: what a blast it was. Since there were no one on server after few laps I swiched off on offline mode :)

More driving, testing car and track changing etc ... :) thanks again. It would be a long night :)

Merry Christmas to all.

p.s our Christmas coming 2 weeks later (Orthodox) but I feel like it rise early this year :)

THANKS!!!

 I like it at 900. Only been going to 20-24 with the lock. Otherwise, it feels unatural to me, but I've had a few older cars and it feels real this way. lol

 Makes me really miss those cars....Haha.

 Excellent, excellent game.

This mod is amazing. It dose not feel right refering to it as a "mod", it seems like it is so much more. I have alot more to explore with this, but I am sure it will be great fun.

Oh this feels as sweet as i hoped it would.

I did spend some time in all the beta releases and have seen the progress you made all the way.

Still you guys amaze me.... I am happy you guys made it this far, it is an awesome piece of work.

BTW: just a little detail notice.
In the corvette L88(i think it was) the roadster.
When you "put your foot down" the foot texture goes into the body/floor of the cra.

Sorry for mentioning minor things like that, but it was just something that caught my eye when playing yesterday.

Cato's heavy right foot eh, it's a sexy thing.  lol
Kidding, good call Cato.

I found a funny thing too.
No worries, no glitch, just funny.
In the Mustang Transam there is a small collection of tropical birds!
Really, every time you accelerate there is this tiny three tones whistle that then repeats itself. I only hear it in one ear.
I wasn't that drunk.
(I know I know, racing cars have all kinds of funny little squeaks and noises you don't hear in padded customer cars and it's cool  :yep:)

I would love to have an ALL CLASS league in this P&G.
Might be a league I actually will try to join and race.

I have so little time left for gaming, but P&G is something that I will make room for.

Simple 5 round ALL CLASS league for a test run....

Not my table though, just leaving it in the air.
