Decided to start up this forum section now that the home of GeneRally, RSC, is down. If any of you regular GR users are around then feel free to make this your new home.
Also, if you are in contact with GR useres that are not present at RD make them aware of this place.
Well, atm, there a no dedicated forum for GR compos, but be sure it will be moved there when it will be done
OK, OK, OK... now we have two international forums, I have to re-make all compos threads as we lost everything with RSC's death (of course there are this mirror thingy project, but atm, we have nothing and the show must go on).
So, let's get started : GRC, or Generally Rookie Championship is a competition reserved for "Rookies", or more precisly to "Bronze" and "Silver" classes according to GRO rules, ie. rookies and also more experienced "amateur" drivers. So, all the good drivers are not permitted to race there, which makes GRC an ideal entry-level formula to all GR newcomers.
So, the current situation is : We are currently in the 14th season, and we already raced 3 rounds, of course, due to RSC downtime, the attendance was not excellent, as we were only 10 to race Round 3, but chance makes that the new forums are coming during the Christmas break, meaning that there will be no rounds during 2 weeks, so that's the ideal moment to join if you missed the first rounds !
So here's the calendar :
Netton Park : From 3/12/2009 to 9/12/2009 (Round over : Results)
Hakulin Ring : From 10/12/2009 to 16/12/2009 (Round over : Results)
Orallio Park : From 17/12/2009 to 23/12/2009 (Round over : Results)
Yas Marina South : From 7/01/2010 to 13/01/2010
Lobo City Street Course : From 14/01/2010 to 21/01/2010
Masters of Dicrette : From 22/01/2010 to 28/01/2010 (/!\ 25 km race /!\)
You can check the complete calendar and also the current standings and results here
So, how do we play ?
Well, as Generally is not a online multiplayer game, everybody have to play offline. But to simulate "real racing", we set up a system : The login system.
It seems quite complicated, but it is not that complicated, in theory, we could summarize this method into 3 steps :
You login on the website (you'll find the GRC login link here)
To sign up, just reply here or send an email to email@example.com with required informations Drivers may also enter teams as long there are at least 2 registered drivers, there are no maximal limit, however, only the 2 best drivers each round will score points for their teams, other drivers and privateer drivers (= no team) will be ignored (see "points & standings")sign up informations are available on the first post.
Settings and races
Each season, we will have 5 "regular" rounds and 1 "masters" round (since s13, normally the masters are the last round of the season) Here's the settings for "regular" rounds :
Race length : 10 km
Tyre wear : 12%
Fuel consumption : 10%
Fuel mass : 50 kg
Damages : 15%
Here's the settings for "masters" rounds :
Race length : 25 km
Tyre wear : 8%
Fuel consumption : 7%
Fuel mass : 50 kg
Damages : 15%
Moreover, drivers must use these settings in any circumstances :
Effects : 100%
Game speed : 100%
You must race with the "FR/13" car you'll find on the GRC pack. You must also race against 3 AIs : I_Rookie_1, AI_Rookie_2 and AI_Rookie_3 which are available on the GRC pack, you must not modify them. All GRO events use the "login system", meaning that you must login, race, and send files of your attempt to be counted on results, here's exactly how to do step by step :
When you ready to race, check your settings, go here and click on the link below, type your login and your password
Then, download the .zip file and extract it to the GRC GR copy main folder
Start your GRC GR copy.
Select the track you've just downloaded, select your driver (IN FIRST), and then the 3 AIs. Start the race
Before that the race start, you can save your game and modify starting grid thanks to Savegame reader
When you have finished your only attempt (when the results appears), take a screenshot with F11 and save your game
