Once again fantastic work. Thanks!

I haven't installed the HQ UI yet. Does it unlock any settings ranges or different settings for cars' setups or does it keep the same limitations of the vanilla GTL car setups? I use vanilla cars/physics and would like to keep the car setup limitations the same as vanilla GTL.

Is it possible to make the UI triple-screen friendly?

UI adds new settings in garage but doesn't modify the car settings.

I don't own triple screens so I cannot say much about it : I guess it is more or less what you can see in GTR2 ? Try it and tell me ;)

Do you race online with gtl ? me not but if you do then perhaps the CUPSTAGES.GDB I tweaked can give online mismatch ? So you may need to restore original one, this file is not absolutely required to run the new UI.
What I did in CUPSTAGES.GDB :
- added custom championships entry to create your own championships
- lowered AI aggressivity because they push you and hit your back too often in default game
- adjusted difficulty : more linear now because it is too easy in beginner/amateur whereas AI is too fast in professional in default game
- adjusted driving aids : I fixed entries as it should be and removed double entries

the best is to ask to @Bjarne Hansen directly in his thread because my graphic card doesn't support dx8 to dx11 feature :

Does that mean we should download one of those to get the full benefit of the New GFX mod?
No. This GFX is really just adding the dx9 versions of shaders that ISI/ Simbin didn't do.
But some functions are hard coded in the .exe to directly call dx7/dx8 shaders. Or even fixed function shaders.
Some of those can be directed to dx9 versions by edited the .exe but not all!
The deVoodoo dll's catches all those shaders call and makes them uniform dx11.
Does cost some fps but for my setup it doesn't matter as I still get +200 fps
For less fps impact the Dx8 to dx9 d3d8.dll does a good job and you will get AA on all textures. But it will lack the steady smooth more dynamic looks of the deVoodoo .dll's

OK. I will not download d3d8.dll nor dgVoodoo 2. Thanks for the quick reply.

I need help from someone who races online with gtl, is there online mismatch with:
- new UI + tweaked CUPSTAGES.CDB ?
- new UI + original CUPSTAGE.CDB ?

Yes, try using the vanilla cupstages.gdb. The modded one isn't needed for the HD UI. It's a file that adjusts the following for the career mode:
- AI difficulty
- AI aggressiveness
- available driving aids for each difficulty level

It actually has nothing to do with the U.I. from what I understand.

CUPSTAGES.CDB is also used in UI for cup stages : I have added an extra line to create CUSTOM CHAMPIONSHIPS with cars/tracks of your choice as you can see on screenshot
CUP_CHALLENGE_tweaked.jpg

What I would like to know is : does my tweaked CUPSTAGES.CDB give online mismatch or not ? it takes 1 minute to make the test : backup your UIData folder + CUPSTAGES.CDB in GameData, copy my UI from HQ MODS then try to join your usual gtl league (altbierbude/simracing.org.uk), tell me if it works online then restore your backup :)

Quite late reply, but here comes...
I justr tried: installed your CUPSTAGES.CDB + CUP_CustomChampionshipTemplate.GDB in GameData and your 3 UIDate files and I could join the UKGTL server, no mismatch!
Please note that I tried it only once, and went no further than getting into the car (but mismatch should have happened before that if any).
BTW Nice work for the UI! Very pleasant to have a much less blurred display! (specially in triple screen)

Thanks
