  Game wide steering assist bug which slows up cars at the wrong time
Posted by: Jag2004 - 09-19-2018, 09:06 PM - Forum: Tracks - Replies (3)

So I am probably one of those few who still utilize the steering assist which F1 challenge allowed. What I would like to ask is if anyone knows how to fix, or at least why does the ai and your car when using auto steering slow down at strange points on a track? This is not just with mod tracks, but is something that happens on the stock tracks which come with the game by default. The worst offenders I have found with this issue are Monza, Silverstone, Imola, and Hockenheim all the way up to 2001. Basically if you set your steering assist to the F12001 configuration in the player file, the assist works for the most part, however, when you enter corners of straights which are not perfectly straight such as the first sector on the old Hockenheim, the car will for no reason at all just slam on the brakes as if it was afraid that it would lose control. The best way to reproduce this potential bug is to set your auto steer to F12001 style in the player file, and then choose a track like Silverstone, which is a perfect example of what I am talking about. You will come flying into Stowe corner for example, end then on the exit you will slow down for no reason at all. All of which is happening well before the Club Corner chicane's braking point. If anyone knows why or how to fix this issue, please do let me know as I for the love of me, cannot figure out why or how to fix this issue in one of the greatest F1 games ever made in my opinion.

  Random recurring ctd's
Posted by: Sebse93 - 09-17-2018, 10:24 PM - Forum: F1 Challenge 99-02 - Replies (3)

I have a weird problem:

Sometimes the game just crashes in the middle of the race. Sometimes about halfway through the race, sometimes towards the end. But never early in the race. Unfortunately there is nothing in the trace file that would cause the CTD.

The curious thing is: This is a recurring problem and it seems to "ssettles down" in the mod. Currently I'm playing the GA 2009 Mod. Until Hungary everything went well. During the Hungarian race, the CTD suddenly happens. Since then it happens again and again - in every race.

I had the same issue with RH2004 and 2006JXP, for example. In the beginning everything runs smoothly, suddenly there is a ctd in one race and then it repeats in every race...

Does anyone have an idea? I am clueless...

  1981-2008 F1C Realism mod by Dimaster
Posted by: Dimaster - 09-10-2018, 09:18 PM - Forum: F1 Challenge 99-02 - No Replies

Hi everyone!

I made a 1981-2008 F1C Realism mod and I want to share it with others.

This mod includes seasons 1981-2008 with:
- updated CAR PHYSICS (.HDV and Engine files for every car from 1981 to 2008);
- updated .GDB files for all circuits from 1981 to 2008 to indicate the right setups for AI and the true RaceEvents;
- updated .RCD files for every driver to more realistic AI permormance;
- updated SETUPS based on RH2004 setups for every circuit 1981-2008;  


Also, this mod is not changing any graphics or sounds, just physical characteristics of the cars by modifying the key parameters (downforce, weight, drag, etc.) in their .HDV 
and engine files and some other things.

Feel free to contact me at Race4Sim forum if there is any kind of problem. I'll be very happy to try to fix it.

Here is the link : http://www.mediafire.com/file/jx7zvjb4p8...e.rar/file

Also, there is a little update here : http://www.mediafire.com/file/z0bz8vg4c8...e.rar/file

Thanks a lot!  Wink

  Changing weather during a Session
Posted by: Sebse93 - 09-04-2018, 07:17 PM - Forum: F1 Challenge 99-02 - Replies (2)

Hello, everybody,

in the gdb file of a track there are many things to adjust. Among other things also the weather situations for the individual sessions.

There is also the possibility to change the weather during a session. I have seen two ways of doing this:

Lap = x
Conditions = xxx

Minute = x
Conditions = xxx

None of the variants seems to work properly. If I set the rain for a certain lap, it comes much too early in the race. Same when I say the minute.

Does anyone here know the trick or can you help me?   Maybe I'm missing something.  
Maybe time doesn't start counting at the start of the race?  

Thank you so much!

  A question about ripples in circuits
Posted by: cecelo - 08-27-2018, 10:13 PM - Forum: F1 Challenge 99-02 - Replies (2)

Hello everyone,

  I would like to know, if possible, how I can reduce the ripples that a circuit has. Do you have to modify only the .MTS files or the Terrain.ini file? Or do we have to change both? 

I would like to know this because I want to reduce the ripples in some circuits. 

Thanks if anyone can respond.

  AI in multiplayer... possible? - Message to Pietrekk
Posted by: Cristian Luis - 08-15-2018, 11:46 AM - Forum: F1 Challenge 99-02 - Replies (2)

Somewhere, in the .exe file, there is a code that resets to zero the number of AI opponents in multiplayer.

The objective is to stop this reset. Freezing the hex value(s) could be the best bet. For have a look at it, search for FCEUX hex editor freeze.

If that is done -in the .exe file -, and the number of AI opponents is set to a number from 1 to 19 (another way to freeze), multiplayer races with AI could be a reality.

My F1 Challenge original game works fine, but if any mod is installed, game crashes just before the vehicle showroom screen. Any suggestions?
