The Task

At the beginning of February this year it didn't look likely that there would be a 2012 mod. Nuppiz who has previously done the great mods over the past years has been busy with other projects of his own and doesn't have the time at the moment to create a mod. I took on a massive task that was unknown to me at the time, this is the first mod I've ever done for a game. I would like to thank Nuppiz for guiding me through some of the things I needed help with and I have learnt alot about modding.

What does the 2012 mod have instore?

1. All updated drivers and teams along with pictures from the 2012 season.
2. Updated rules based on the real life sport.
3. Although we couldn't find anyone to make a brand new track from scratch I have replaced Indiana the old American circuit with a leftover old track that has a similar nature to the modern Austin Texas track.
4. Updated engine power and weight.
5. Experienced and rookie drivers updated.

Please note the 2012 mod is not perfect there are a few things that are off.

EDITED On 24th March 2013 = Added latest download link

Instructions these are very important to follow even if you have played the game before I would still read it,

1. Download and unzip the file and open it.

Image

2. Find GPM2 in the folder and you want to start to application.

Image

3. Game should load up then click ''Load Game'' do not click on anything else on the main menu or the mod will not work.

Image

4. In the GPM2 2012 folder you will find a bunch of saved files, they are all arranged for you to choose any team and to make things easier the difficulty as well is mentioned. So load up a save you want.

Image

5. As an example I choose Red Bull so when it loaded up I was taken to the main menu.

Image

6. You don't need to do this but if you want to change things go to ''Options'' then ''Customize''.

Image

7. And then change anything in there if you want, please remember you will not be able to edit anything after the first race.

Image

8. So once your all settled in you can set up your team, test the car and get sponsors.

Image

9. Now onto race the default settings are set to qualifying and race only if you want to change this just click the buttons to change this.

Image

10. When your setting up your two cars don't forget the 2012 mod has the perfect set ups for you to use you will find it in the folder.

Image

11. Then qualify and eventually race!

Hi Sean ,

With every team when i set up the car for qualifyng or race....there are the (old) green and white words on the screen.

Hi Andrea this is just a little mistake I made when putting the files together for the final mod I have fixed it now and the 2012 mod can be found here http://rapidshare.com/files/2526787159/GPM22012.zip

I've edited the original post as well with the new download link.

A new update will be coming soon and should be the last one. Nuppiz is in the process of fixing a few things up like changing the year from 2009 to 2012 something I can't do because it requires HEX editing. Also the engines names and logos are off for some engines that will be fixed and a few other small little issues will be patched up. I hope you are all enjoying to 2012 mod to date it's had just over 100 downloads.

Yep, I also noticed a few things more that I didn't mention in the PM:

  • Some team principals' names a wrong. The names of Stefano Domenicali, Monisha Kaltenborn and Frank Williams are cut off, while Cyril Abiteboul wasn't appointed as the Caterham team principal until November 2012. James Allison is Lotus' technical director, not team principal. Marussia's principal is John Booth and HRT's Luis Perez Sala. Oh, and it's Franz Tost, not Frost. :1wink:
  • Most of the main personnel (chief designers, engineers, mechanics and commercial managers) are either in wrong teams or are no longer active and need to be replaced.
  • The free drivers are all over the place - some names don't match the photos at all, some rookie drivers are listed in experienced and vice versa, and there's people like Johnny Herbert, David Coulthard and Marko Asmer that've already retired. The main drivers have OK stats and pictures, although the pay drivers should have much more money to offer, the bonuses are too small for some of the drivers and certain driver names are too long (such as Antonio Felix da Costa) and should be shortened to prevent bugs.

is there any way to get the right game .cfg for this mod? i tryed to add my own team and change some car pictures and sandbox with gpm edit and looks like pictures are random (e.g Marussia has HRT side picture and sandbox)
