I'm in love with Arnao! (figuratively, of course)
tk Arnao (and all the people working in this project)
Yes, this mod was one of the original greats for RF1 and still is.
I think the fact the all cars had the same sense of effort put into them, regardless of how unpopular the car may have been, may be part of what made the mod so great. You can really feel the quality and effort in every car. Apart from that, you can really feel the difference in every car in terms of physics, sounds, graphics, cockpit, etc.
The fact that there was a track pack pretty much made for this mod, I feel, played a huge part in it's popularity as well. A track pack along with a carpack is basically a game on it's own. We don't even need a new GP79 track pack, simply ported the original ones to RF2 would be good enough for now, I'm sure people can and will update them further over time, but just the basic track with the basics like realroad, etc. would be good enough for now as a starting point.
ohh my lovely Brabham-Alfa
The 79 MOD was a great step for rf1, as F1 88, because both provided cars and tracks used for other MODs, as the Group-c cars.
I need testers.
Mainly Nvidia Graphcard user to test if Tyrrell black screen has been completly FIX...
So PM me...
Great news Thx Arnao !
Great 2 hear!
Nvidia 680 GTX here! PM sent
Thanks a lot guys,
So as already said in PM I will have to hold release till Zonder did his finals touch on Tyrrell cockpit.
Any suggestion or help will be welcome...
I got now a fully workable ModDev *.rar package for any Physics Guru that would want to Help...(Sorry Navigator to not have done this before)
Keep in mind that This Old ladyes are conversion from RF1 that was already conversions from F1 challenge 99.
There is a lot to Improve....
The High level of Zonder's Cockpits details still amaze me...
Use everything you can to keep him working on them, bribe, blackmail, anything
Maybe... and I say maybe, it could be possible to make a fundraising campaign to help finish this mod. I'm one of those that bought RF1 just to play this mod, and I would really like to be able to see it shine under RF2. So I'm sure there is a lot of love for these cars and their romantic memories, maybe enough to bring some cash to let experienced people make a good work on it.
Maybe... One day Reysa will bring to US an rfactor2 based sims with GP79 cars...
Just saying that because of main Physics guy for RF1 version was Renato Simioni, boss or one of the boss of REIZA studio.
3 cheers, for Arnao and Zonder!
I didn't have time to test this time, hope to next time.
Feedback: Did not time to install on racing PC but on my old GTX460 I got no BScreen with Tyrrel and other cars on HDR on different Circuits (ISI ones and 3rd party) at times between 04:00 and 07:00 afternoon and evening. In my version are missing shadows from Ligier and ATS cars (shadows at Medium) and I get maybe too much reflectiveness of the cockpit isnstruments (sometimes not readable - might be the low sun). I even get NO BS on a track I get BS with the Nissan GTO and other cars. And for sure I get those BS in connection with the starting lights (glow) as after the starting lights go dark no more BS.
Will test on weekend on my PC with the NV680GTX and on high settings. Thx
PS: Still getting a lot more purple in the gfx bar (ctrl+c - cpu/physics) than with other mods. Maybe the "big" tyres take a lot cpu?!!
Thanks a lot for feedback.
I 'll try to fix shadow for ligier and ATS...
For the extrme usage of CPU it's happen with more than about 10 AI for me on certain tracks. Still no idea where it's come from.
I'm having new pbs with tyrrell cockpit. When I export from max LEDS are not working. When I export it from 3D Simed LED are OK but it Break normal maps of TACH.
Just Another test please. Can you tell me if other car than TYRRELL haveLEDS Pbs ??
Thanks a lot.
After eventually getting to do some laps with the mod I can report that I never got any black screens after about 20 mins of driving and drove a couple of different cars including the Tyrrell. I also let the AI drive about for a while and everything seemed ok.
Will test again for longer and do more laps.
I have also done about 30 mins of testing, the Tyrell only on historic Spa.
I encountered no problems with black screen at all. All seemed fine.
Yep seems that Blackscreen is the past...
Can any one of tester can report if rev led are working on some other car than the Tyrrell ???... Not all the pace...
