Newbie question - downloaded this track but when I come to play it, all I can see is the bike and a black background - it seems the walls etc are all there because I run into them, but can't see anything at all! Any ideas? Thanks,

Thanks Max...that's resolved my problem with Oulton crashing, but Catalunya is still doing the same...it doesn't crash core.exe, it' just has a completely black background other than the bike!

The zip file contains the folder - CATALUNYA_CLASSIC_LS_NDS but outside of this folder there's a load of other files -rainsky.edf, marshalls.cfg etc which I've tried dropping in the same folder, i've also tried dropping them in a few other locations with no joy - where are these files supposed to be copied to?

When you unpack an archive just unpack it as a whole, do not pick individual files.
Usually the archive will create a folder (named as the track) and put all the files inside the folder.
In the above, the files are actually in the CATALUNYA_CLASSIC_LS_NDS (unless the track creator has done something terribly wrong, which I doubt).

If the archive has a .pkz extension, you don't need to unpack it, just put the .pkz file in the "tracks" folder.

Indeed. There are 2 tracks in the Catalunya track folder(Don't separate them): Modern and Classic versions; you will be able to select which one you want to ride from the GPB track menu.

When you download a track zip file, put the zip file in your track folder and just right click on the track zip file and select "Extract Here"; all will unpack properly then.

Good point Max about the .pkz extention but I don't believe any track zip archives have that extension in the track database?  :)

I know, but they should.
If they are named .zip, a simple rename to .pkz will do. If they are something else (.rar, .7z, ...) then they should be unpacked, zipped to a .zip and then renamed to .pkz.

I think that time has proven that the average user is not a modder, so dealing with a single .pkz file (per track, per bike) is much easier for them.

Totally agree with you Max!  ;)

ok so I was having a blonde moment!

I'd dropped the CATALUNYA_CLASSIC_LS_NDS folder directly within the tracks folder...rather than unzipping the whole package into a CATALUNYA_LS_NDS folder - problem sorted
