GPL 1.2.0.2 All-In-One Patch v2

GPL All-In-One Patch 1.2.0.2 (UK, US, GER, FR)

This patch installs the GPL 1.2.0.1 Patch, Direct3D Patch, OpenGL Patch, CPU Speed Fix Patch (= 1.2.0.2 Patch), Disconnect Fix in the right order and installs a preedited optimized core.in and starts GPL in D3D mode instead of software mode.

Note:
The All-In-One Patch Version 2 already implies the Carsound and Bandwidth Patch!


Tip: Check you GPL patch status easily with GPL.exe Patch Inspector by Bernd Nowak.



Carsound Patch

For installing sound updates and GPL mods the Carsound Patch by Nigel Pattinson has to be installed.

Note: The All-In-One Patch Version 2 already implies the Carsound and Bandwidth Patch!




 

Bandwidth Patch (for online racing)

The Bandwidth Patch increases the number of visible cars in front and behind of your car when you are racing online. It also gives the server the possibility to show any combination of cars in front and behind instead of the default 75%/25% division. This patch is needed to join online races.

Note: The All-In-One Patch Version 2 already implies the Carsound and Bandwidth Patch!


Installation:
Copy the Bandwidth Patch into your main GPL folder (X:\...\SIERRA\gpl) and execute, at patch status you have to choose "1" and hit ENTER. To leave type "x" and hit ENTER.



These lines should be in your GPL core.ini (X:\...\Sierra\gpl\core.ini):

Single GPL 1.2.0.2 Patches

The GPL patches are also as single patches available. But the All-In-One Patch Version 2 is the easiest way to get GPL up-to-date.

If GPL 1.2.0.1 is already installed on your PC, you just have to install the CPU Speed Fix Patch (= 1.2.0.2 Patch) to update GPL to version 1.2.0.2.

The single GPL patches (for all languages) are available at:


If you are doing a fresh install using single patches you have to apply them in this order:

1. GPL 1.2 patch

GPL 1.2.0.1 enables Force Feedback (FF) support for wheels and includes many other improvements, especially for online racing.

2. Direct3D Patch
Enables the usage of D3D with graphic cards like GeForce and Radeon cards.

3. OpenGL Patch
Enables the usage of OpenGL with graphic cards like GeForce and Radeon cards.

4. CPU Speed Fix Patch (= 1.2.0.2 Patch)
Updates GPL to version 1.2.0.2 (and fixes the bug that GPL crashed on PC`s faster than 1,7 GHz).
You have to install this patch to run GPL mods, GEM+ and iGOR even if you are using a PC with less than 1,7 GHz!

If GPL 1.2.0.1 is already installed on your PC, you just have to install the CPU Speed Fix Patch (= 1.2.0.2 Patch) to update GPL to version 1.2.0.2.

5. Disconnect Fix
Reduces the possibility of disconections from the server during online racing.

6. Carsound Patch
For installing sound updates and GPL mods the Carsound Patch by Nigel Pattinson has to be installed.

7. Bandwidth Patch (für Online-Rennen)
See above at GPL 1.2.0.2 All-In-One Patch v2
