General Discussion / Re: To real life ::: Racers & Track Day Riders :::
« on: September 27, 2017, 11:54:17 AM »
I'm by no means a fast rider and only really concentrated on trail braking in the last couple of years, but what I have found is that i've been leaning more and more on the front tyre and yet to lose any traction whatsoever. I'd consider myself a fairly smooth rider so rarely have any moments with loss of traction at either end of the bike, so this helps I guess.

What i've noticed with GPBikes is that the gyroscopic effect of trail braking into corners seems to be quite good...grab a little too much front brake and the bike wants to stand up and therefor push you wide of the apex. This is true for track riding as well.

It's amazing how hard you can actually push a front tyre trailing into corners, but the key is smoothness. You constantly hear stories in the pitlane of trackday hero's "losing the front" or "sliding the rear" and I'd suggest 90% of these are simply because the rider inputs are too wild and not smooth enough, as opposed to the tyre being at it's limit. This is similar to GPB, where you more than likely are taking bigger risks than real life and as a result, more aggressive inputs to the steering/brakes.

I don't really know what my point is here, just some waffle to add to the equation I guess....

I had a similar issue with upgrading to beta 12!

Have you downloaded the full Tyres folder from the Bikemod repositary? Download the full folder so you have all tyres.

Try downloading just one bike at a time and dropping the .pkz file in the Bikes folder. Don't copy over any bikes from your old GPB folder as this is what was giving me some issues.

So in your GPBikes folder you should have a "tyres" folder (containing tyre pkz's) and a "bikes" folder (containing the bikes pkz)

Surely there's more important and pressing issues with GPB development rather than a fancy leg dangle?

eheh, it's a tricky one but i've found you can carry a lot more speed through there than you initially think.....if you get the line right anyway lol...

I was really impressed with how smooth you both looked out there, that's definitely an area i need to improve on.

I was really struggling with turn 1 (i think maybe just need to be less greedy with the brakes) and the right hander going up the hill, i think it's Arrabiata 2??

haha it was great fun!!

My heartrate must have doubled when we got close on track....just hearing another bike was really bizarre considering i've been in solitude for so many months lol. Completely missed my braking markers on a few occasions because of watching you or Adalgood but I think I learned more in that hour than I have done the entire time of playing GPB, so thanks!

Now i'm seriously tempted to take my xbox pad to work with me lol

Hi,
For the folder problem=> have you all the rights to the new location ? Modify and write ?
Yeah i've tried a few different locations and checked the folder permissions as that was initially a problem. I'll have another play later and post back

i've just updated to 12b and now I have a working dash with the r6 - must have been something fubar'd with my 11b install?

cheers Hawk, I've got the same but when trying to drop the mods files into a different location and editing gpbikes.ini it doesn't seem to pick up any of the mods...

i'm not getting anywhere with the mods folder.

I've created a new folder on my C: called mods. Edited gpbikes.ini to point to this folder. I understand the game should then create another subfolder within here called GPBikes where I drop all the bikes/helmets etc? Well it's not doing that, so i've tried creating it manually, tried creating the folder within the main GPB folder and can't get any mod bikes to display....

Love the simplicity of this update  :o

Support / First Person Dashboard?
« on: September 10, 2017, 03:41:18 PM »
Just wondering if it's possible to show some kind of working dashboard whilst in first person view? I have the MaxHUD but it'd be useful to see revs, engine modes etc. You get one in third person but I can't find an option to show it in first....or am I being blonde?
