    Are you using Win 7 ?

    BTW, I think this should have it's own thread in the GTL Forum.

    Nigel, have you ever successfully gone online with GTL? I ask cause I'm trying to narrow down the possible problems.
    Also, do you have Windows 7?

    I had this happen to me before. It was some files that had the extensions in CAPS and they had to be changed.

    Do this...
    Go to your GTL game directory, go inside the "GameData" folder and you will see a bunch of files with the extension ".gdb". If these files have the extension in CAPS, for example ".GDB", you need to change those extensions to small letters so that they read ".gdb".

    If it doesn't solve the issue let me know and we will try something else.​

    check your .GDB files. They need to be renamed to .gdb, ie change the upper case to lower case, and that should fix it. I actually run a little .cmd file to do this on startup of the game anyway so that automatically fixes that problem.

    EDIT: NINJAED by Carlos :D

    I run vista 32, and don't get any lag offline.

    But you could try turning the rendering down to DX7 or DX8 to see if that helps.

    I'm going to move the posts about getting you running into a separate thread.

    Clogging up this signup thread is going to make it more diffficult to keep on top of signups

    Nigel, in the "Video" section, make sure the shadows are no higher than medium quality.
    Then go into the "Advanced" section and make sure you de-select high resolution wheels and livery.
    You can also select to have low resolution textures. This might help.

    And you can also open "GTLConfig.exe" inside your GTL directory and choose DX7 and make sure the anti-aliasing is set to no more than 2.

    These are my settings and the game still looks fine. Everything else in the VIDEO section could be set to medium levels.

    Woah a minute.

    In my old, feeble, addled state, I've kind of missed rather a large point here.

    Nigel - you've bought GT Legends, so you've got the disc there. You have got Vista 32, and GTL runs flawlessly on Vista while using the disc, so why exactly are you getting into gdb file territory? You only need to get into that side if you're using W7.

    All you need to do for Vista is install GT Legends, update starforce for Vista (here) and it works fine straight out of the box.

    If I were you, I'd think about doing it the simplest way, tbh.

    If it's everything that affected, then yeah - the graphics card/driver combo looks to be the main suspect, unfort.

    In the graphics settings, make sure you aren't loading the card up with high levels of things like Hi-res shadows, Antialiasing etc.

    They can kill performance stone dead, and a lot of graphics settings set them up as on by default until you go in and disable them.

    Don't know if you tried this, but uninstall the drivers again, then use DRIVER SWEEPER to make sure it's completely removed. Also, check your AV isn't causing probs, the one time I tried Norton it slowed all my games to a crawl.

    Also check Tim's suggestions too - anti virus can run at the most inopportune times, and checking that first will be a lot cheaper to try than a new card.
