I'm trying to get myself setup with your 1991 F1 mod with an eye to taking in a race at some point. I'm less than a day into a partially working AMS setup and one thing I haven't figured out is where the Season tracks are located. Do I have to purchase individual tracks that the mod then interacts with? I'm using Mint 19.2 /steam/whatever version of Proton works at the time of writing and I got to thinking I may have accidentally deleted the tracks when I was moving them into the AMS files since they don't show up in AMS. Neither do any of the cars numbered lower than the AGS team.
Proton 3.7 gave me all of the stock tracks (I guess tha'ts what you use for Montreal, Interlagos and Hockenheim) but no multiplayer. When I changed to version 5.0 I lost the stock tracks and got multiplayer. I'm very new to this so I'm just trying to do a sanity check. Not sure what is behind a paywall and what isn't.

I'm not here yet... Still much too slow and probably too dangerous at this point to look for a race opening. In looking at my replays I'm still weaving a bit on the straight. I'd like to get some form of self centring into the wheel but I need to learn how to install some dependencies to get the Logitech FFB drivers to work. The shifter on my DFGT is wearing out and coupled with everything above I'm struggling to keep the car in gear on entry and exit. One day though... I'm definitely hooked.

Don't you have paddles on the steering wheel?
Weird about the self centering, should be easy to set. I think that Gianluca Desposito who races with us in 91 also has a DFGT, might ask him his settings.
Anyway, even if you don't feel like competing, you are welcomed to pick any car you like and join the server during the week for practice. There's usually someone there you can watch and learn racing lines, driving clues, and also get setup help. There is also usually people at Team Speak (TS), again join us there if you want. If you are too shy to talk or have no microphone you can just join to listen, there is always good advice (And fun!) there and you can type in the real time chat at the server or at TS to ask questions. Some people got started like that, it is way less intimidating than entering directly a race with people you don't really know from anything and not even sure about your pace or car control.

I do have paddles but my fingers are trashed from work and i have trouble manipulating them. The lack of self centring is down to me not installing the drivers. There is an old driver for the DFGT that I use in WINE for GPL competition and it sort of centres the wheel but when I was figuring out how to get AMS running some folks noted that there was a new driver for linux so I'm hoping to go with that once I figure out how to install it.
I've been watching the broadcasts to get an idea of what to expect. Mick gave me some advice on top of that. I'm not fast enough into a corner and the knock on effect is that too much time is spent in the middle of the corner lugging it. Half the time it pops out of gear when I'm exiting. If I can get a little resistance on the wheel I'll feel more comfortable - I just have to get my head around the computer part.
I'll definitely be on the server as soon as I can. I only got AMS/Proton/steam working online after the Mexico server came down so it still needs to be tested.
