GTL Workshop is proud to give you Power&Glory V3
It is a great honour and a privilege to post this announcement. Personally would like to thank Ducfreak (Lucio) for inviting me back in early 2010 to join and be part of the GTLW team and the great project that Power & Glory truly is.
It’s been a long adventure developing Power&Glory. We started working on the first demo and v1 back in late 2006 and we continued working hard through version 2 and then on version 3 from March 2009. That’s a lot of time for a free mod and we had many issues that are common and many modding teams face these days, lack of free time, real world issues, voodoo type of issues, lack of more team members, you name it we had faced them.
That said, thank you to Ducfreak for keeping the team together during those difficult periods and thank you NacK, David Wright, IainT, and SpinDoctor who kept with the team till the end as much as they could. Thanks to aSa we have a great installer with options to satisfy any P&G user. A big thank you goes to Aristotelis, we all know how big his contribution was to the P&G trilogy.
Thank you to all the people who were part of the team and left for whatever reason, but helped during the development, further we thank GPLR for hosting our private forums, Nogripracing and SRMZ for the official forums, the beta testers and everyone that helped along the way. Sorry if we missed anyone or did not include them in the credits that is in-game.
We never gave up and what you’re about to download is the result of pure passion for simracing, admiration for vintage real racing and respect for our Motorsport heroes.
A total mod of 2.30+ GB of compressed data, and over 3.9GB when installed, featuring completely redesigned User Interface, 59 aud sound configuration files and 1153 sound files made from scratch, 373 .car files with tons of skins and history described, 199 .hdc specific physics files, you’ll find it difficult to drive to identical cars, 125 .tyr different tire files all balanced and proportioned to one another, in-game setup tire help manuals, improved collisions and multiplayer, improved force feedback and tons of incredible details on the 3D models and skins of the cars, every one of it painstakingly documented and verified from homogenization papers, era magazines, books original service manuals and help from mechanics of the era and actual drivers.
Without further ado we are informing all P&G fans that the P&Gv3.0 development has come to the end! A monumental amount of work, free for you to download, drive and immerse yourself a bit in the lives of our 60s and 70s driving heroes.
If you want to install v3 over an “old V2.1″ version, you need to uninstall the old version.
Use the P&G v2.1 uninstaller found in the root folder of your P&Gv2.1 installation and then the v2.0 uninstaller to completely clean your old P&G folder.
We highly recommend installing on a clean GTR2 v188.8.131.52 version!
What you will need:
Please pay attention to the names of the files, numbered data file names are critical. No extra “” or anything added anywhere in the file names.
All the files should reside in the same folder.
You DON’T need to UNPACK any of these.
How to start installing:
Just run PnGv3.0_installer.exe
Notes on the installing process itself:
The install process is straight forward except after a install type selection: “Please select the desired install type:”
We have 3 choices here to select from, but only 2 of them (#1 and #2) are recommended.
The differences between #1 and #2:
#1 uses an existing GTR2 installation to copy needed files from to a new PnG folder. Copy process will do CRC checking for some of the critical files to ensure that the resulting PnG folder will contain only correct file versions. The GTR2 installation will remain intact, no files will be changed there.
#2 will remove all unnecessary files from the given GTR2 path and add PnG files over them. There will be no CRC checking for the remaining GTR2 files. Naturally this GTR2 installation will not remain intact as it is converted to a full PnG installation.
Both #1 and #2 will copy/save your player profiles to the new PnG installation (if the source has profiles). We do not recommend using #3.
“Destination folder” (with both #1 and #2)
This is the path where your PnG will reside in the end. Note that in #2 this folder should have your preinstalled GTR2 in it to be converted.
“Source folder for GTR2 files” (only with #1)
This should point to a folder where you have a clean GTR2 installation, either version 1.0 or 1.1. The GTR2 files in there will not be modified.
In a popup window: “Would you like your player profiles copied from the GTR2 installation?” (only with #1)
If you answer “No” the installer will not even try to copy your player profiles to the PnG installation. Then when you start PnG the first time you will need to create a new profile for it to use.
Run the installer and follow the instructions carefully.
We STRONGLY RECOMMEND installing on a clean GTR2 v184.108.40.206 using options 1 and 2 for online stability.
