F1GP Lap Time Calculator (LapCalc) - version 0.1.2

A new version of the F1GP Lap Time Calculator (LapCalc) has been released. LapCalc is a command-line program that calculates the lap times of the computer-controlled cars, for a given set of performance parameters (AI Grip, Car BHP, Driver Qualifying Skill, Track), using a database file.

The lap time database has been expanded to cover AI Grip values up to 30 (the previous limit was 22).

The program is available for download in the File Archive section of this website:

GpLap version 7.0

A new version of GpLap has been released. GpLap is a TSR program that logs and displays split-times and race data. This is an enhanced version of the original GpLap, modified by Rene Smit.

The changes compared to the last version are:

GPLAPTIM.COM

  • Improvements for hotseat mode:
    1. Set player grip to 1 only if it is the active player (not computer controlled). CC player will use the regular AIG value instead.
    2. When car control goes to automatic (CC player) or to control (player), the grip will be set accordingly.
    3. The CC player BHP can be set from the commandline using option -w. Randomization of this value will be disabled, just like for player BHP.
    4. The BHP logged in the authentication record and shown by GPLap will be the value for either CC player or player, whoever is in control at the time the car passes the s/f line.

GPLAP.EXE

  • Added watch period parameter. Defaults to 0 seconds. This used to be hardcoded at 5 seconds. It might have been necessary for Windows 3, but it's not necessary for DOSBox.

GpPerf version 4.0

A new version of GpPerf has been released. GpPerf is a TSR program that changes the cockpit, adds rev lights and a tyre wear display. It also logs detailed information about the car. This is an enhanced version of the original GpPerf, modified by Rene Smit.

The changes compared to the last version are:

  • Made the yellow grip bar fill up twice as slow, because on some circuits the maximum was beyond the bar's range.
  • Use the game's tyre grip table as a base for the grip bar.
  • Made grip bar work also in wet conditions.
