69x mod makes double driver numbers at a full grid!
We have full grids at UKGPL and troubles at several races.
This seems to make the server dizzy and gives lots of extra work when importing the results to the UKGPL database.

Is it possible to fix this?

Thanks
Axel

Here's a fix for the double number appearing on 69x races:

www.grandprixlegends.co.nf/files/drvc69.ini

Download the new drvc69.ini and place in the root Grand Prix Legends folder. EVERY server hosting 69x has to do this, although for fun races with less attendance it's probably not as problematic, as the bug only occurs when the grid is already filled with 16 drivers.

End users / racers don't have to do anything.

_____________________________

TECHNICAL BABBLE:

The server takes it's starting numbers from the AI lineup drvc69.ini. This file had both Jacky Ickx and Pedro Rodriguez with starting number 12. I've changed Ickx' number to 7, which was unused in the generic drvc69.ini.

I still have my doubts if this fixes the connection problems, but it's worth a try anyway.

Tommie.

I have just discovered this topic.
I have never heard of this problem and fix. :blink:
Has this fix ever been implemented in any public available version of the 69 Extra mod?

Stephan this "bug" shows only when you have 18+ drivers.online

The server and the pribluda rankings were so confusing that I stopped the server.

Guys, thx for the feedback.

P.S. According to Cookie's posts in another topic, this fix may also solve other issues when playing the mod offline (AI, crashes, etc.).

So I better install this fix on our GPLRACER servers. ;)
Strange that I have never read of this fix. Every day you learn something new. :D
