  • GPL Install 2015 + 2022 Tube Guide

    There has been little change from the last instructions to install GPL

    I understand if those who want to try GPL give up, because you have to really search the web for help. If you find the solution to one must continue the search for the next problem. Actually, maybe because GPL is old,1998
    One thing that teased pretty much, normally used D3D patch (today new D3Dv2) but it would only give 20fps. If you use Alt+M could give 5 more...but too little, especially when in the old days could reach 36fps (without using the 60fps patch)...& to my big surprise, with OpenGLv2 it came back at 36fps.
    *2017/2018 Update* After countless updates for Windows 10, you can try again with D3Dv2
    GPL Install: Windows 8.1 & 10 x64 - NVIDIA

    1: Download GPL & Mount PowerIso to CD - or if you have CD, throw it in your drive & Stop auto install. CD don't work alone anymore from XP & up to now
    2: Run GPL Install 1.08 beta, tested & works perfect (Don't use the old GPL 0.97 Install)
    3: Copy your player profile (if you still have your old profile)
    4: Install GEM+ iGOR (but not to Program Files C:\GEM\GPLSecrets
    5: Install 4GB Patch
    6: Install gplrast_v2.5 (V2 rasterizers)
    7: Update Pribluda to v1.1.2.1 - Copy 'enablepribluda.XML' in here: C:\GEM\GPLSecrets\GEM+\Options *Attached + Fix*
    8: Install GPLshift0790…but, only if you want to use H-Shifter (GPLShift can cause faster gear changes & banned in some Leagues) FairShift
    9: Install GPL67 Patch v1.3*
    10: Copy '60fpsv2newmod.XML' in here: C:\GEM\GPLSecrets\GEM+\Options
    (*60fpsv2newmod can only be used after you have installed GPL67 Patch v1.3)


    Start GEM+2 & select Open GL V2
    Remember: Enablepribluda...& If the server requires 60fps

    Q: Help, I have no GPL CD but would like to try.
    A: You can try to download a Demo from 2013, made of F1Legends & maybe find the track you miss in the link at the bottom.
    Q: In old days we always used WinVROC, but no help here ?
    A: When you start GEM+ you can choose whether you want to use VROC or iGOR & here are many more options, for example, to activate 60FPS & not much happens in VROC more.

    A good place to pick up everything you need: SMRZ
    ...& to test if everything works, download the new Spa67. You may be thinking back to the original Spa in GPL, many thought it was's certainly not more. This is a great experience, but a little more tricky.
    My time on the original track: 3:13...on this: 3:18...with the old Eagle setups. The man behind the wheel of the video runs about 3:25 in Ferrari
    You can jump to 6:40 in the video to watch a full lap

    To run online, press Gem+ 2 & if you choose VROC...maybe you're unlucky VROC can't find your GPL.exe & you have to help a Little.

    ...& use this option

    Are you having trouble with iGOR? Go to folder: \GPLSecrets\iGOR & open config file, you may need to change in IP
    IP =

    Server is because you don't have this track

    Update: 2019

    If you are 'old' in GPL & change to new PC/SSD or something else, here's a tip

    Note: This install is tested where the old GPL install was from CD + GPL Install 1.08 beta in Windows 10 x64

    1. Connect your old disc with GPL to your PC
    2. Create folders for GPL just like on your old disc on the new one.
    3. Copy your old GPL folder to the new disc & insert. *Check that your 'player.ini' has not been written protected (the one you upload to GPLRank)*
    4. Install GEM+ same place as before (but never to Program Files ) & tell where your GPL is.
    5. Open the new folder with GEM+: GPLSecrets/iGOR & open iGOR.ini with eg notepad & change line 2:
    IP =
    6. Back to your old disc: GPLSecrets/GEM+/Options: Copy all files from here, eg 60fpsv2newmod, insert into your new disc.
    7. Install software for your steering wheel & pedals & if you can find your old profile, copy as before
    ...& maybe new issues with Logitech

      Windows 11 Upgrade

      Many may be sitting & wondering about 'YES' with upgrading to Win 11

      GEM+ was a bit dead in the beginning, but after even more reset & updates in Win it works.
      If you don't want to lose GPL & GEM+, the answer will be it's like Russian roulette
