Grand Prix Garage - GPL
Currently in the garage:
Modified starting grids
Here are alternative track.ini files for 32
tracks. The starting grid is changed to a 1x1 staggered format,
giving the cars more room. This allows for better starts in
online races. When used online, only the host needs to install
the files. Clients will then use the modified grids
At least three differently spaced grids are provided for each track. Grids for 21 add-on tracks are provided (Brands Hatch, Dubai, Hickory, Homestead, Loudon (New England), Phoenix, Watkins Glen 99, Österreichring, Taladega, Atlanta, Snetterton, Cleveland, Elkhart Lake, Imola, Indianapolis, Laguna Seca, Mid Ohio, Riverside, Road Atlanta, Solitude and Goodwood). A facility for batch copying of the track.ini files is included.

The bandwidth patch
By default, GPL online will show only 4 cars in
front and 1 behind over internet dialup connections. This
patch lets you increase those numbers to 6 in front and 2 behind,
or more. And it allows servers to show any combination of cars in
front and cars behind instead of the default 75%/25% division.
To see what difference the bandwidth patch can make, see these examples.
There is support for GPL 188.8.131.52 as well as GPL 184.108.40.206 (Cpu fix). The program can apply and remove the Morecars patch and the Cars behind patch, and shows the current patch status.

Example core.ini files
Here is a zip file containing 3 example core.ini files for GPL 220.127.116.11 and GPL 18.104.22.168. The comments explain the parameters and default values. Do not copy them as core.ini without modification, certain parameters need to be tailored to your configuration. At least look at: replayMemoryOverride, AllowForceFeedback, synch_method, clock_adj_delay and the OpenGL settings (if applicable).
The files are:
