i like the dashboards which now light up as they should,so night races should look awesome, only tried a few cars but they are very authentic,the jag mk2 4.2ltr is now very very good and drives as  it should,very heavy on the front end,but it is superb.

can't wait for the next releases of the gtc's and 70's cars.

great work GTLW

Now Kristof.. when do we get PnG rank?  :biggrin:


There is already one, it's part of the gtr2rank: http://gtr2.gplrank.info/viewTopTenPGLaptimes (looks like Caspar already uploaded there  :finger:)
ATM it's release 1 cars only, but I guess it will get updated soon? Otherwise I'll sent a mail to the admins.
I can admin at GTR2rank too it seems, so adding tracks, removing fake laptimes, ... is no problem   :biggrin:

Yeah, but your old load screen hasn't been deleted, if you look in your GTR2 folder, you'll see its backed up, so you can remove the P&G one and replace it with the back up if you want.

But I reckon it's better to treat P&G as a new game and have a bespoke P&G/GTR2 install...  in which case the custom load screen makes sense.

Im working on some new addboards for default GTR2 tracks, its a big job but im gonna do at least couple.. Anderstorp under work atm.. I dont really like those LG etc modern adboards, i want something bit more vintage.. (not historically correct though, but should add to the atmosphere)

I've looked in every corner of my home.  I cannot find the damned case that had my online code on it.  :(

I've Emailed viva-media and asked for a new one.  Let the wait begin.

Brilliant.  Downloaded and installed perfectly.  I really like the installer options, very nice touch.

Just been on the SJ server with six or seven other folk and a fair bit of joining, leaving and car swapping going on, and I'm happy to report there hasn't been a single CTD.

Everything about the P&G says attention to detail.  Love it.

 thumbs up

It's indeed far more stable than the latest beta (wonder what's the difference  :?:) I had one CTD when I tried to leave the server as the track surface was just gone at places lol

i had an issue where it kept CTD whenever i tried to join using the one of the ferrari' but then it sorted itself out  and was as good as gold.

i tried a number of different cars,and it is great.

needs a bit of getting used to but it's ace.

A couple of CTDs for me, but seemingly for no discernible reason, really enjoyed driving with you guys again, made even better by the fact that I WON (maybe because i had the fastest car on track)
Great stuff fellas

i have been loving/hating PnG2 so far.  Loving its attention to detail and the amount of research and work that went into it.  Hating the brakes and frustration of trying to get some of the cars to turn, but that is what will have my loving it even more once i come to grips with it. :)  :)

i also have had many CTD's.  im going to add "-trace=100" to the command line of my PnG2 shortcut to see if it will create logs explaining the failures.
