PostSubject: Targa Florio how to conv to GTL   Wed 07 Sep 2011, 11:03 pm

...i just gathered the post from guys who know the materia..me noob in this so here u can try u'r luck:

..."I have not doing that for long time but in my memory the convertion of a track from GTR2 to GTL take 2mn.Remove of reflect (Instance=xxxR) in .trk and rename some GTR in GTL"....

..."GTL and GTR2 use the exact same format of gmt"....

..."Contrary to popular belief, you do not need to rename .GTR files to .GTL either. The game will load what ever you have in the .TRK file so save yourself some time and don't bother. I never do and the courses work just fine. I seem to remember have .GTL files from a course and adding lines for common_skies.gtr and that works. As I said, what ever files you have in the track's .TRK (or .SCN) is what the game will load"...
..."
Indeed..
ALL you need to do to make a GTL track work in GTR2 is change the TRK lines for the sky and the general textures (MISC.GTR and Teams2.GTR)
You can in fact just copy them from another GTR2 TRK file.

Next step:
Copy the SKYBOX entry from another GTR2 TRK file, because GTL has a less complex sky (no rain etc..)

Another step:
Make rain reflections and a decent GTR2 LOD "...

this is from nogrip conversation betweet zwiss keni and kuato...so pick out what helps and hope u guys will have it soon 4 u'r game

Edited 8.9.11 <<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<:

just found this: someone GOT IT WORKING IN GTL <<<<<<<<<<<<<<:

>>> delete the "ani"-file and this track work in GTR2 and GT Legends. <<<

this last one is from F1 Classic...cheers, Peter Cool

I was able to use this guide to convert GTR2 Targa to GTL. (And now many others)
Since I don't have GTR2 installed I couldn't copy MAS.GTR and my standalone GTL
could not identify the .gtr files,so

Step by step:

1. d/l and extract the file to a temp location.

2. Use Windows Explorer to convert all "filename".gtr in the
folder GTL by "renaming-command" to "filename".gtl

3. Open "trackname".trk with Notepad to edit

example for Roy Hesketh ...


MASFile=RoyHesketh.gtr <-edit to .gtl
MASFile=RoyHeskethmap.gtr <-edit to .gtl
MASFile=skies_north.gtr <-edit to .gtl
MASFile=teammaps2.gtr <-delete line
MASFile=Misc.GTR <-delete line

4. With trk still open find the instance lines for rain and remove

Instance=dayR
{
Moveable=True
MeshFile=dayR.gmt CollTarget=False HATTarget=False
}
Instance=nightR
{
Moveable=True
MeshFile=nightR.gmt CollTarget=False HATTarget=False
}
Instance=sunriseR
{
Moveable=True
MeshFile=sunriseR.gmt CollTarget=False HATTarget=False
}
Instance=sunsetR
{
Moveable=True
MeshFile=sunsetR.gmt CollTarget=False HATTarget=False
}


5. run GTL with trace command to catch errors.

imagesMap.gtr needs to be renamed *.gtl as all of the gtr files...
then edit both Targa_Historical.trk and Targa_Florio.trk files to change

MASFile=teammaps2.gtr -> edit to TEAMMAPS.gtl
MASFile=Misc.gtr -> remove line
MASFile=Skies_central.gtr -> to .gtl
MASFile=BuildingsEtc.gtr -> to .gtl
MASFile=Hidden.gtr -> to .gtl
MASFile=Horizon.gtr -> to .gtl
MASFile=EtoP.gtr -> to .gtl
MASFile=ExtraTreesVehicles.gtr -> to .gtl
MASFile=GrassToC.gtr -> to .gtl
MASFile=Grdr.gtr -> to .gtl
MASFile=Objects1.gtr -> to .gtl
MASFile=Postc.gtr -> to .gtl
MASFile=Rain1.gtr -> remove line
MASFile=Rain2.gtr -> remove line
MASFile=TrackObj.gtr -> to .gtl
MASFile=Trees.gtr -> to .gtl
MASFile=TreeWall.gtr -> to .gtl
MASFile=Walls.gtr -> to .gtl
MASFile=SkyBox_Lights.gtr -> to .gtl
MASFile=imagesMap.gtr -> to .gtl

The most tedious is to delete the rain references in both track files at the end of each file
starting with...


//--------------------------------- RAIN ------------------------------------------------------------

Instance=rreflect000
{
VisGroups=(32)
MeshFile=rreflect000.gmt CollTarget=False HATTarget=False
}
Instance=rreflect01
{
VisGroups=(32)
MeshFile=rreflect01.gmt CollTarget=False HATTarget=False



...and ending with

Instance=rreflect1900
{
VisGroups=(32)
MeshFile=rreflect1900.gmt CollTarget=False HATTarget=False
}
Instance=rreflect1901
{
VisGroups=(32)
MeshFile=rreflect1901.gmt CollTarget=False HATTarget=False
}



...at he end of both track files.

...well i took his download in 1 block rar format (its 201mb) and my mediafire account allows me 200mb,so repacked it with 7z (197mb) and upload it ...sorry mates dont use gtr2 anymore so didnt test it works or not cant tell u ,do u know someone who took the same link from my post ? ask if working by him i see 42 downloads from that file and i posted only on 2 forums here and at f1c.... dunno mate i could upload a new one but never had before problems with upload and didn't touch the folder... even didn't open it .... well seems Keni made a rush job even with Race 07 v1.1 started some new problems..Weissbierbude took the v1.1 down cas bugged . and they use now the v1.0 for Race 07....so think its not to us its more that bug comes from other side...its same as that hotfile from start...and seems there are "some" problems between Keni and rFactor Targa team that gave the permission to Keni ... if u interested read at NG ... sorry i'm now at late evening upload and that will be busy till tomorow afternoon so could reupload it tomorow night...

Targa works great when converted to GTL. I drove yesterday with just a couple of crashes,
but I didn't die. I'm always crashing to death in Grand Prix Legends version (my fault).

What is the difference between the Historical_Grid and Regular_Grid layouts?

Too many GTR2 tracks, so little time. Easily converted 67_Roadamerica, 67Glen, 70Donnybrook,
IOM, Roy Hesketh, and 07Silverstone.

I almost got it to work in GTL using the above instructions, but it still CTD's during load with:

specialfx.cp 658: Unrecognized reaction "SHARDS1"
specialfx.cp 658: Unrecognized reaction "SHARDS2"
specialfx.cp 931: Could not create 1846-particle system using MTS: or BMP:RACELINE.TGA with flags 0x00000a01
specialfx.cp 934: CUBE Error: Error loading material Reaction23 for particle system
specialfx.cp 931: Could not create 32-particle system using MTS: or BMP:SHARD.TGA with flags 0x00000811
specialfx.cp 934: CUBE Error: Error loading material Reaction28 for particle system
specialfx.cp 931: Could not create 32-particle system using MTS: or BMP:SHARD2.TGA with flags 0x00000811
specialfx.cp 934: CUBE Error: Error loading material Reaction29 for particle system

At least I can run it in EVO..........

Try these:
Targa_Florio.trk modified for GTL...
sendspace.com uhinx3
Targa_Historical.trk modified for GTL...
sendspace.com zpsoax

Make sure all the *.gtr files have been "renamed" *.gtl

Shards isn't listed in the trk file, it may be from MISC.GTR that needs removal or
Teammaps2 that is renamed TEAMMAPS

Thank You so much tdurrett, while our .trk files differed a bit, I think it was your suggestion of renaming the "Teammaps" file. I used the .trk file (thank ypu), but while the track would load, finally, I was getting "black banding", I renamed the teammaps file as you mentioned, and it works fine now..... Thank You Very Much tdurrett !!!!!!!

You can toggle the 'PIT LIMITER' in GTL by selecting the key you wish to use. See the driving options on GTL.

Yes I know that. I mean that in a race the ai drives slowly (around 60km/h) and I've tested that by getting into a free practice session and toggling the "ai control" so that the ai would drive. It drives but it drives with 60 km/h...

This is not an ai Problem. This is an Problem with the "xpitout.gmt"-file.

I'm still getting some black bars way way into the lap, bit I'm going to try a fresh convert. Before tdurrett graciously supplied the trk files I had really butchered my install. If I get a clean one working, I can post if there no objections......
