Yeah, I should be able to do a before and after comparison to determine what LexxEditor changes when it "changes" the game year. :1smiley:

I also just had a rare surge of brain activity and realised that I could just code in a new function that returns the artificial game year when it's only required for display purposes. So I can leave the majority of the game code as it is, so it always thinks it will be 1998 until 2007. But on screens where it asks for the game year for display, hopefully I can redirect the request to add X to the real game year. e.g. for a 2018 mod, GetArtificialGameYear = CurrentGameYear + 20.

Should work. Maybe lexxeditor is doing that, too?

Try the google drive folder for the editor. The 2018 mod thread has a link for the full game.

Ok! So good news, game works perfectly, except whenever I use dldraw or whetever the file is, my in game mouse freezes and is replaced by PC mouse, so clicking drops me back to desktop and crashes it. So watching races live is still a no-go.

However, I am now almost an incredibly crap version of all the talented modders we have here! Managed to use the upgraded .exe on the 2000 version. Upgraded the exe from my 2000 file, and then from a backed up folder, copied every file (except for the EXE) and voila, you now have 2000 sponsors, teams etc on the new exe! It did take me a couple of hours to update all the drivers stats but it was worth it, added Takagi as the Jordan T Driver, Junquiera at Williams and Webber at Arrows, and just added Fittipaldi and a couple other extras I like.

Only real issue. The new editor, as amazing as it is, gives no option for editing Engine deals. So i can't move teams around to the relevant engine suppliers and I also can't upgrade the engine cash/R&D stats. Managed to do it on my old old PC using LEXX Editor 1.0 (weirdly still works on the new exe), only drawback is can't edit slots or team facilities. So kinda managed to get there on 2000, save for the fact I dont really have enough engine supplier spots to accurately depict it (IE Jordan use Cosworth instead of Honda)

So long story short, I love this editor, only requests would be to edit starting engine/fuel deals and facilities. Tyres work fantastically - Can even assign Michelin to teams and although they wont show up as a supplier in game, the teams will still actually use Michelin!

All resolved. Refer to GPW Edit v1.1 to fulfil these desires.

Setting contract lengths is near impossible through the game executable, as all contracts default to a year long at game start. However it may be something for a saved game editor in the future to extend contract lengths after saving the game immediately after starting a career.

Outstanding issues from this thread are the ability to change factory size, factory costs and staff limits. Something that is partially developed already for a future version of GPW Edit.

Locking thread. Totally satisfying. :1cool:
