Calling all racers

**EDIT BY OLLY**
See this post, for full instructions on how to set yourself up for Bettys Great British Drive.
http://forums.gamegrin.com/showpost....7&postcount=38
**END OF EDIT**

I thought it would be fun to have a tournament with a difference this lan.

We always play things like Grid and Race07 at the lan with modern cars.

I thought we could have a 1960's club racing championship driving production cars using the Race07 GT Legends mod on a selection of British tracks. Brands, Goodwood, Croft, Cadwell etc.

I've amalgamated the GT Legends mod with the tracks and Olly has kindly agreed to host it for me (thanks mate) so that anyone who is interested can get familiar with the cars and tracks. I'll post the URL once the upload has finished. It's about 600Mb.

We'll be using semi pro settings and you can choose any of the cars from the 1965 season (or possibly 1976, depends what people prefer). I want to leave out the supercars like the Ferraris and GT40s though. Just "normal" road cars. Keep it competitive.

What do you think? Fun or hum-drum?

I'd be up for that. What do the semi-pro settings entail?

Re: Calling all racers

Any restrictions on what we use as in full on wheel or pad?

I only ask as I don't have a wheel and play all such racing games using a wired 360 control.

Re: Calling all racers

I've uploaded the file now.

http://bfstats.bplondon.org/race07mod/

Just extract it straight into your Race07 directory, whether that's from the retail copy or Steam, and let it overwrite anything if it wants to.

It's about 600Mb and it gives you 2 classes of racing from 1965 and one from 1976. Some truly epic cars in there. De Tomaso Pantera, Lotus Cortina, Ford Mustang, my particular favourites the Lotus Cortina and the Escort RS2000 and loads more.

The tracks I've put in are Cadwell Park, Castle Combe, Croft, Donington, Goodwood, Knockhill, Pallory Park, Silverstone and Snetterton.
That should give us enough to have 5 or 6 of the best of them. We can decide which ones we want between now and March.

I was thinking a 10 minute practice, a quick 3 lap qualifying session and about 10 laps for the race.

Another thing that did cross my mind was that we could have a single lap of the Nordschliefe as an end of season finale race. The track is too long to have a practice and qualifying session so what I thought was a random grid position, standing start blast around the course.

Re: Calling all racers

The nice thing about this mod is that if you're not very good you can still have fun. Use a car that interests you and just come for a drive in the countryside with us.

WIll keep practicing and see if I can get this damn BMW round Brands hatch in one piece before the lan. lol.

Re: Calling all racers

obv. won't be there for the LAN, but if you fancy doing a few practice nights, I'd be game to join (would most likely have to be on the weekend though as I'm normally at work during the UK evening).
Is there a dedi server for this (if so, we can set one up & can then prime Rash/LAN crew so that you can enjoy it there too)

Re: Calling all racers

A server would be awesome. A dedicated server file is included in the game

I've had a look and the dedicated server doesn't seem to recognise the mods in the Race07 folder. I'm trying to find out how to make it do so.

I'm sure it's possible, I think the files probably need to go somewhere else.

Re: Calling all racers

Well that was easier than expected. All you need to do is copy the steam.dll file from the root of Steam and then run the dedicated server exe file from the folder rather than starting it up through Steam. Then all the cars and tracks are available.
I'm guessing that probably isn't a problem if you have a standalone installation.
