Hello everybody.
I am french, so please excuse my mistakes in english  ;)

I'am currently working at my first Track for GPL.
Just for learning something and to go deeper inside my favorite simulation.

I have a problem with the software GPLDFM. I just can't create this .dat file.
It just doesn't compile my files. I always get a error message.

Search string is: '*.*'

Very long  Error Message  :bandana2:

Then
Compressing   asphalt.mip 32940 bytes:

At the end, I have only the file asphalt.mip in my .dat file



I feel bad because without this file I just can't try my track, and because I am pretty sure that it comes not from my files.

Does anybody encounter the same problem  with this software ?
Does it come from Windows ?

Thank you in advance for your Help

To make a dat file I'd recommend you use dooDAT. Quite simple to use.

BTW, your files don't have to be in a dat to run the track. It's just more convenient to have all the files together and of course to use Martin Grandberg's track installer when you release it.
