I just noticed that I could log into the forums again, and also posted a message successfully. So good ol’ GPM2World still has some life in it.
Seeing as Ian is not interested/too busy to have any attention on what is happening to this site (I doubt it has much more mileage left), I’ve taken the liberty to plug a replacement forum started by a member called “redmoth”. It’s pretty good and some of us have already found their way there. You can find it here: http://www.sionco.com/forum/phpBB3/
And it looks like the forum has been restored, at least for the time being. Hopefully it’ll keep that way as well, as unfortunately I don’t have the necessary rights to restore it should it trip over again.
Edit: looks like logins don’t work, so at the moment it’s view-only…
Looks like our forum is suffering some serious downtime at the moment. We’re doing our best to see if it can be fixed.
…as I’ve now released my Leftovers Mod! If you’re bored with always managing the top teams of each season, how about the exact opposite? This mod includes all 13 teams which were left out from the 1989-1994 Mods, including the 1992 version of Brabham and the 1994 version of Pacific. So if you fancy managing teams like Onyx, Rial, Osella, Coloni etc. head over to the Downloads section to grab this mod. Maybe you can even make a Life qualify for a race!
I’ve added a couple of things here. There’s a palette which allows you to edit images to GPM2 colors with GIMP, which wasn’t possible previously. And the second one is probably something you’ve waited for a while already: a 2011 Mod executable that allows you to access the Customise menu whenever you want. It has been added to the existing GPM2World exe pack.
Yes, after a long wait we’ve finally released the 2011 Mod! At one point it looked like the whole project had died down as I faced serious motivational problems, but a while ago I managed to gather myself and finish what was left. And it’s now uploaded for yours to take on our Downloads page! There’s a few things that are off, but for the most part you can now enjoy the most recent GPM2 Mod to date!
Alright, so I finally managed to fix the downloads for the EXE files that allow you to customise the game after the first race. Please note, however, that there are now two downloads for my Customise EXEs; only the lower one has a working link, the other one is just stuck there because our Downloads Manager isn’t working very well at the moment.
Ian took a look at the situation we had over at our Downloads page, and managed to restore it! Yay! You can now continue downloading mods
At the moment we can’t supply you with any downloads; after we changed servers, our former download page is gone, and we have experienced major obstacles in making a new one. We are extremely sorry for the inconvenience
