Hm, this error message is shown if the self-check (CRC-16) fails.

There is a crc/size information in the file:

Code: Select all

struct ProRallyCRC {
   uint32_t Magic;  // 0x19981103
   uint32_t Checksum;
   uint32_t FileSize;
};


To fix the checksum for the previously posted modification search for

Code: Select all

03 11 98 19 3A 8F 00 00 00 40 0E 00
and change it to

Code: Select all

03 11 98 19 04 87 00 00 00 40 0E 00

If you wanna help you can try to fix random CTDs before races in Motorhead or make a better patch (than mine) for M1TP2. :idea:

Zeus, are you releasing a fixed exe for Pro Rally 2001 or is it the next version of nGlide we'll need?

Both, so I'll release them at the same time. You'll need new exe to fix freeze at loading screen and new wrapper version to fix "Mode Selection Error" bug.

Sounds excellent; it might just finally allow me to play Pro Rally 2001 on my XP machine, just before I upgrade to a new Win8 box where the game works already :D

Will the loading screen fix work on the Direct3D version as well as the Glide version?

And do you have a rough time frame for the release of the next version? Is there a certain milestone you need to reach before releasing it?

nGlide 1.01 released.

Instruction how to play on Windows XP / 7 / 8:

1) Install the game through P4 installer
2) Install update 1.1
3) Replace 'prorally.exe' (all files available here)
4) Open 'rallysetup.exe' and set 'Voodoo'.

Probably yes, but I can't test it. D3D renderer doesn't work for me.
