The correct way to upload Videos and Screenshots, as well as commenting on them. Too many reposted pictures.

How do you upload a youtube video? I need to know.

I didn't lose the race, I ran out of laps.

That's not a question for the GPB guide, it relates to forum usage.

In any case, you have to use the red button with an "f" and insert your youtube link.

If you quote a post with a video and you don't want the video to appear, just edit the quoted part.

MaX.

How to upload a youtube video:
1. Get the link of the video (ex. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=buUQZCGYRFQ)
2. Remove the 'watch?v=' and add v/ => new link looks like that:  http://www.youtube.com/v/buUQZCGYRFQ
3. Insert a flash object by clicking the red flash icon.
4. Insert your link in the flash object.
5. Edit the width and height (560,315)
6. Now your video is successfully embeded! :D

A couple of questions: the (first) ones that provide a correct reply wins a free copy of GPB+WRS (demo version only).
  • In Settings, Input 2 tab: what is "Dash" for ?
  • In Settings, Misc tab: what is "Help" (On, Min, Off) for ?

I've also put close to nothing in the Settings / Simulation / Freelook part: if you have any info ...

MaX.

P.S.
Piboso can participate too, but he will gently forfeit the prize :)

Hi Max,
I think PiBoSo only knows your 2 answers  :D

I would guess the Dash is to change dashboard display mode/option.
I have no idea what the help setting is.


As for Freelook, it is intended to change the view according to the moves of your body (mainly face).
In GPB, you have 3 options :
* 1 for using the mouse to control the view
* 1 for using your head (with FreeTrack (http://www.free-track.net/english/) >> http://forum.piboso.com/index.php?topic=159.msg871#msg871)

Apparently, you can also use TrackIR (http://www.naturalpoint.com/trackir/) by letting it emulate the mouse

I thought that the "Help" button was to turn on the visible starting point on as to where you should be on starting grid

Help on gives you a red arrow above your grid position in a race and help hints in the setting pages.
When starting a race and the sighting lap and warmup lap are active in the event info page you will see a red arrow above your grid position so you no where to start.
This caught me out the first time I stalled the bike on the grid forgetting to put the bike in neutral

Great work on your guide good detail one thing to mention
1.5.2.2 Settings/Input 2 tab: Controls / View / Gestures
Controls:
 Low Speed: two buttons to have the rider "walk" the bike (forward and backward on the grid when forming up on a sighting and warmup lap).

I suggest you do a race start and you will see for yourself  I will do some screenshots next time I race. This will catch people out every time on there first race start

Mouse Look was clear, but what's the difference between Tracking and Face Tracking ?

I have help hints in the settings page always, no matter how I set the "Help" thing. Also, it has 3 settings, so it's still not clear what is removed in each setting.

I've done races (with sighting and warmup laps) and it's true that the low speed controls an be used there. However they can be used anytime (e.g. if you have troubles getting out of the pits or out of the grass/sand due to a bad respawn). I'll ass the grid example anyway, it's useful.

IT.IS.DONE.

Man, that was a long one.

Comments welcome. Really, any sort.

Soon I'll delete this topic, but you will still be able to PM the comments.

Time to attack the physics stuff now: at least this would be funnier :)

Just read some random parts of the manual. Great work you've done there, really essential for both the people just starting to play this game but for the more experienced as well. Ill soon take the time to read the whole thing and see if I can add some sensible comments to it.
