Oh!   Hubba-Hubba!

Refuse to be drawn in right now - race this weekend and am kinda on a roll in SpeedTree...
...and time just disappears at nordy.   :P
...but I know I still have a million miles to do round here, so the update's much appreciated.    ;)


Unfortunately I keep getting that syncing feeling that it'll core. Then it does :(
The other version worked fine.

Thanks for the report, this version has the 3D grass on the verges and it does add a lot.

I will compile a version without the extra geometry to compare memory usage - i think we may be bouncing on the 4GB limit depending on systems :-(

Not sure what GPB does with memory;

Track loaded in game with Club350 is 2GB - a bit more is required during initial loading but it really should be OK


yeah same here I got cores too :-(

Just curious, but is anyone with problems using a 32bit o/s ? It appears that without a bit more tinkering 32 bit o/s is stuck at 2GB even with LAA enabled




No, 64 bit for me.
However, after the loading core I mentioned, I  had a curious fiddle with the 1050 gpu tweak settings and couldn't even load gp bikes itself without a core. Was ok when I put it back, but still can't load the track. Weird


I use 64bit Windows 10 too. Up to this update didn't have any problems with GP Bikes


Added link to a modified .map file that reduces file size.


Thank you 😊 I will check tommorow if it works


That's done it!  FPS between 80 -135 on the first few miles I tried.

One other thing though, not sure if it was present before, but between 15-25 mph, the bike and scenery shakes a bit. Is that the flickering you are talking about?

Going for a tour to fully appreciate your efforts. Thanks!


This track has a laserscan surface so you may need to soften the suspension to allow for the bumps and ripples.

Thanks for the report, wish PB would fix the procedural grass then all the extra geometry would be unnecessary.

What view mode are u using?

In case u using view mode=1 (which is the best one in my opinion) happens in all tracks even victoria, some tracks more than others but still there.
