Damn it.  I just paid $12 for it 3 days ago.  Grrr.

Speaking of which, someone that has the disc should round up the Porsches & Ferraris and put them up on Google Doc.  Steam version doesn't have any Ferrari or Porsche skins...so all you see are gray shadowbox cars running around.  And when half the field are Porsches, it's a bit dissapointing.

I've been way to involved w/ iRacing the past couple days.  Worked through and got my B license, so now I can spread the love a bit.

I just bought GTR2 and GT Legends on Steam today.  Been on a Steam sim racing purchase binge the last couple of days.  Race Injection, GTR2 and now GT Legends.  So dang cheap right now, figured what the hell.  

Trying to figure out how to get GTR2 to look ok with my triple screens.  Looks distorted right now.  I'm sure it's a setting somewhere, just haven't found it yet.

Ok - got the triple monitors working good.  Downloaded the P&G3 mod.  OMFG!  The quality of the graphics are amazing for this game.  I'm extremely impressed.  Also, the physics feel great as well.  Very similar feel to the Historix mod for rFactor.

Do you have the link for the P&G ver3 mod?

I downloaded and installed the power and glory mod using one of the links in Hawks' post, but it keeps crashing to Windows when I try to go into a race.  I did the Option No. 1 install and have the Steam version of GTR2.  Any tips????

Thanks Hawks for the help today.  Also, thanks for the linke Neverender.  I tried a bunch of stuff and could not get it to work.  Same problem, I get a CTD every time I fire up the game.  I will try again tomorrow.

Got the p&g loaded and it runs great. My only question is I can't get the HUD to display in the cockpit view. Any suggestions.  I have it mapped to the default 2 key on my keyboard but nothing happens

Map &xd

good mods for GTR2

xenon headlights

hd gloves and suits

hd skies

http://www.nogripracing.com/details.php?filenr=36899r

there is also some tire mods kicking around that i havent tried yet, and are also only meant for single player mod cause they will cause online mismatches.....so i would only suggest this to those that have a dvd copy and a steam edition so you can have a online/offline edition without having to modify files each time.

i truely hope a community modder creates a plug in to support online triple screens cause i prefer gtr over race 07 and would love to run our sat series on it, allows more options than 07 looks feels and sounds better with the edition of weather and time changing.....its basically a combo of rfactor and race 07

Houston we have lift off!!!!

The problem was the interference of BitZipper, the program I use to unpack compressed and zip files that I download from the Internet.  BitZipper, for whatever reason, was converting the first of three files to a "BitZipper Archive" format, which was the apparent cause of the incorrect install.  For whatever reason, that was corrupting the install and so Power and Glory would crash when I would load up a car and track from the main menu.

This game reminds me a lot of GT Legends.  Its missing a career mode, which is a bummer for me, but it seems to be pretty good overall.

Thanks for all of the help.  Sometimes we just need to leave problems and come back to them, which is what I did here.  wink

Be nice to run a series with this one if enough of us have it.

Just got GTR2 working on my dual monitor setup with softTH.  I have do some toggling in the menu screens because it stretches the menu across 2 screens, but when I am driving it works great.  Still can't PnG3 working with it yet, but I am not to concerned with that right now.
