Inverse kinematic is used to animate the chain, to link the rider hands to the handlebars, to link the boots to the pegs and to prevent the knees from sinking into the ground.

To show the link points ( cyan ) and the targets ( magenta ), edit the file gpbikes.ini ( located in the gpbikes folder in the GP Bikes installation folder ) and add:

Tracks / Default Groove
November 23, 2016, 01:45:42 pm
There is a little feature that could be useful.

1) Open wrs.ini and add the following lines ( or just the second if the "edit" section already exists )

[edit]
groove=1

2) Drive several laps in testing mode on a track to create the groove ( it's possible to use groove_multiplier to generate it faster )
3) Press left ctrl + g: a file named temp.grv will be saved in the World Racing Series installation folder
4) Rename temp.grv to track_id.grv ( for example: victoria.grv ) and move it to the proper track folder, with the matching TRP file
5) World Racing Series should automatically read this grv file at track load time

General Discussion / Monza
October 29, 2016, 09:30:33 pm
Today I saw the news about the free pCars version with Pagani cars.
I decided to give it a go, just to check out the graphics.
Did a few laps at Monza with the "sim" physics, at a ( slow ) pace of around 1:55, using the least powerful road car.
For sake of comparison, I then started WRS and did a few laps with the GT car at the Monza mod.
I was shocked to find out that I was lapping at a pace over 2:10  :o
Panic mode! What is wrong? Could pCars be uber-arcade? Let me check the real GT3 laptimes... No, they are under 1:50
Then there must be something terribly wrong in the WRS GT car!  :(
I fired up a YT video of a lap of a GT car with on-screen telemetry for a side-by-side comparison with a WRS replay.
Everything seems roughly correct: top speed, corner speed, braking points, ...
But then the clouds open up when I realize that the straights look awfully longer in WRS...
I open the track with TrackEd and in shock and horror I discover that the track is 7 ( seven! ) KM long!!!  >:(
Who did this? Why? Isn't it possible to have a proper Monza?  :'(


P.S.
For the record, the real track is 5.8 km long.

How many of you were around at the time of GPB alpha?
Today I was doing a couple test laps on a very old track and I was thinking: "GPB sure changed a lot over the years".
So I decided to make a comparison video, just for fun:
http://www.youtube.com/v/LmSygVJga4s

On the left, the Alpha5 ( from the beginning of 2009 ), the earliest version that still runs without graphical glitches.
On the right, the latest private build.
In theory they should simulate roughly the same bike ( 2004 vs 2003 ). The reality is that the alpha physics was very strange and doesn't feel like a motorcycle.

Documentation / Windows desktop scaling
October 05, 2016, 12:33:08 pm

If the Windows scaling is set to a value over 100% then GP Bikes will start at a lower resolution to compensate for the automatic scaling.

To solve the issue and use the full resolution: right-click on the GP Bikes icon -> Properties -> Compatibility -> Disable display scaling on high DPI settings
