    This month marks the twentieth anniversary of release of Grand Prix Legends. Are there any other old timers that still run it or, like me, will re-install it this month and give it another run?

    First time in GPL in ten years:

    I have to find the DVD I have of the final installs of N2003 and GPL.

    For me, GPL has been running on all of my computers since 1998 with all operating systems from Win 95 to Win 10 (thanks to the installer). I think I will never stop driving the mother of all simulations. It's still one of the best racing sims ever.

    I found my stuff.

    I worked for some time back in the day on oval AI -- specifically for Talladega--- errrr Taladega, that is.

    The big one did happen from time to time.

    Sometimes things didn't go well for me.

    The adaptive AI created one magical race that I just barely won. I always started in last place and worked my way up so I could see what the AI did. I had to work the draft to do this.

    Going way back to the beginning... my very first crash with GPL. Ahhhh, memories.

    I tried running it for old times' sake with one of the recent "all singing, all dancing" installs that I had on my HD but couldn't get my G25 to work properly :( I'm afraid I gave up at that point.

    Did you try the latest GPL installer (v1.08)? My GPL I installed with the version 1.07 on Win 10 in 2015 (at that time I still had my G25, since 2017 I have a T300). I have never had problems with the installer on any Windows version (with none of my steering wheels).

    Yes, 1.08. I know I did have it working a while ago so I don't know what's changed.

    Last time I fired up GPL was to try the Can Am mod. I found the modded Can Am cars very difficult to control, while I was never a master of GPL, I usually was able to keep the cars pointed generally in the proper direction.

    Hallo @belies, abgesehen von dem, was der Chief schon gesagt hat, gibt es ein extra deutschsprachiges Forum von Studio397. Wenn du dich also gerne auf deutsch unterhalten möchtest, ist hier der passende Platz dafür. https://forum.studio-397.com/index.php?forums/german.146/

    Darüber hinaus ist Studio397 nicht Entwickler von GPL. Daher bist du mit deinem Leid hier auch nicht direkt an der richtigen Stelle. Dazu kann ich dir smrz.net nur wärmstens empfehlen. (allerdings auf english) http://srmz.net/index.php?showforum=84

    Solltest du also die Motivation haben, dich ernsthaft mit GPL beschäftigen zu wollen, sind das deine Möglichkeiten um mehr darüber herauszufinden.

    Andernfalls sollte es hier dann jetzt wieder auf ENGLISH weitergehen, finde ich.

    Long time GPL`er here too. Had it running on all my PC`s. My very first proper race sim. Loved it since I got it way back. Will always drive it for sure. Got to say a big thanks to all the fantastic modders out there that keep it driving and looking so good for a 20 year old sim.

    :cool:
