Power & Glory 3 – Released

THe GT Legends Workshop has released their Power & Glory 3 mod for GTR2.

Based on GT Legends, Power & Glory brings a heap of carefully created historical cars to GTR2. The team has cut no corners as all cars have been created with plenty of details, liveries and scratch made physics and tyre data.

Furthermore, the team has also overhauled GTR2s UI system, rounding out this carefully-crafted mod.

The car list consists of some of the most famous touring & sports cars, click here to check out the full selection of all cars.

Unlike earlier versions of Power & Glory, the new version does not require a GT Legends disc to install so all GTR2 owners should make sure to give this major mod a try!

Power&Glory v3 the 3rd part of the trilogy is finally finished.
It’s been a long adventure developing Power&Glory. We started working on the first demo and v1 back in late 2006 and we continued working hard through version 2 and then on version 3 from March 2009. That’s a lot of time for a free mod and we gain and lost lot’s of members of the team while working on this project.

We never gave up and what you’re about to download is the result of pure passion for simracing, admiration for vintage real racing and respect for our motorsport heros.

A total mod of 2.30+ GB of compressed data, and over 3.9GB when installed, featuring completely redesigned User Interface, 59 aud sound configuration files and 1153 sound files made from scratch, 373 .car files with tons of skins and history described, 199 .hdc specific physics files, you’ll find it difficult to drive to identical cars, 125 .tyr different tyre files all balanced and proportioned to one another, ingame setup tyre help manuals, improved collisions and multiplayer, improved force feedback and tons of incredible details on the 3D models and skins of the cars, every one of it painstakingly documented and verified from homologation papers, era magazines, books original service manuals and help from mechanics of the era and actual drivers.

A monumental work free for you to download, drive and immerse yourself a little bit in the lives of our 60s and 70s driving heroes.

What you will need:
4 files:
PnGv3.0_installer.exe
PnGv3.0.001
PnGv3.0.002
PnGv3.0.003
Please pay attention to the names of the files, numbered data file names are critical. No extra “[1]” or anything added anywhere in the file names.
All the files should reside in the same folder.
You DON’T need to UNPACK any of these.

How to start installing:
Just run PnGv3.0_installer.exe

Notes on the installing process itself:
The install process is straight forward except after a install type selection: “Please select the desired install type:”
We have 3 choices here to select from, but only 2 of them (#1 and #2) are recommended.

The differences between #1 and #2:

#1 uses an existing GTR2 installation to copy needed files from to a new PnG folder. Copy process will do CRC checking for some of the critical files to ensure that the resulting PnG folder will contain only correct file versions. The GTR2 installation will remain intact, no files will be changed there.
#2 will remove all unnecessary files from the given GTR2 path and add PnG files over them. There will be no CRC checking for the remaining GTR2 files. Naturally this GTR2 installation will not remain intact as it is converted to a full PnG installation.
Both #1 and #2 will copy/save your player profiles to the new PnG installation (if the source has profiles). We do not recommend using #3.

“Destination folder” (with both #1 and #2)
This is the path where your PnG will reside in the end. Note that in #2 this folder should have your preinstalled GTR2 in it to be converted.

“Source folder for GTR2 files” (only with #1)
This should point to a folder where you have a clean GTR2 installation, either version 1.0 or 1.1. The GTR2 files in there will not be modified.

In a popup window: “Would you like your player profiles copied from the GTR2 installation?” (only with #1)
If you answer “No” the installer will not even try to copy your player profiles to the PnG installation. Then when you start PnG the first time you will need to create a new profile for it to use.

    The best simracing news of the year, fantastic!!, thanks a lot!!

  • Glen

    really looking forward to this, thank you for all the hard work! :)

  • hoodge1

    3.5yrs.. You guys are genius’s and this should of been a title on it’s own like Reiza branched off. I’ve always loved the power and glory mod, and now all I can say is THANK YOU 10 times over. Even tho this mod is free, I feel it my duty to throw some money your guys way..

    GTL and GTR2 are STlLL amazing sims in my eyes. They still never go away and the modding community has embraced the Gmotor sims with Gold. This is one mod that will never leave my computer. Great job and thanks for the hard work.

    Developers need to hire you guys or you need to pull a Reiza off and start making your own sims. So much modding talent in the PC sim racing community.

    A few corrections…

    The list you posted is not the “FULL” list.
    :-) That will be this one:

    Also, we’ve been updating links for download (including rapidshare), so we suggest people get first into our download page:

    Cheers!

  • Lúcio Marques

    Thank You!

    That’s the kind of compliment that feels like a million bucks!
    Believe me, we’ve been through the best of times and the worst of times.
    After so much time, it feels absolutely wonderfull watching people enjoying our own labor of love.

    And yes, totally agreed… I think the team proved that there is still a lot of life on GTR2 (and GTL)! Just… check it out! 8-)

    I have been waiting forever for this one. I can’t believe it’s here.

    I already did a couple of races and it’s fantastic. Love the cars. I spent an hour just reading the histories of each car in the showroom.

    this is definitely a labor of love but I am sure I am not the only one to want to send you guys some money. How would I do that?

    never tried gtr2 even though i have a free cd key, but this is going to get an install for sure :)

    “Unlike earlier versions of Power & Glory, the new version does not require a GT Legends disc to install”

    Isn’t that illegal?

  • http://twitter.com/oooRickyBobby Michael Hornbuckle

    Wonderful mod….cars are an absolute blast to drive

  • David Wright

    No :) Simbin’s conversion policy allows conversion of content from older Simbin titles to newer Simbin titles without the need for a disc check.

  • sargentjack86

    My jaw just hit the floor.
    Only yesterday I was dreaming of driving an Elan 26R in GTL…………and now I have the real deal.
    Thanks to everyone invloved in PnG. The classiest mod around. :-0

  • sargentjack86

    So in the installation it says PnG contains all patches for GTR2 yet on the download page it says it is recommended to install into a clean GTR2 install V.1.1.0.0.
    Which is it to be???? Shall I patch the GTR2 install before installation or what????

  • David Wright

    Either will work :) a clean v1.0 is easiest.

  • mirza mirza

    Well to be sure patch :D it wont harm it :D

  • sargentjack86

    OK thanks guys. Just wanted to be sure to avoid any potential problems.
    Cheers.

    Ok, let’s cut to the chase.
    This mod is not only the best mod I’ve ever driven in ANY gmotor2 titles, it is the best simdriving experience so far! Amazing! Everything is top notch! Physics? Can’t describe good enough how sexy, smooth, and believable it is. Every car is a blast to drive, pure enjoyment. Sounds? Another step forward! Just driven Porky 911 around Road America, and I felt delighted like I discovered simracing yesterday. Yes, It’s that good!
    Best freakin’ mod ever! Period!

  • Rafael

    Hey guys, congrats for the awesome job. Definitely amazing.

    I just got one problem. Some cars are with the speedometer upside down. Do you have any idea of how to fix it? Thanks

  • mirza mirza

    heh it is not an error it is how they raced back then or some of them did ( some drivers put them like that upside down to so that the needle is more noticeable/visible when the car reaches its max or optimum RPM.)

  • Rafael

    Ahhh, haha, thanks for the information, dude. It’s not totally upside down, but I didnt know how to explain it, hehe my english isn’t so good. So now I can say, this mod is perfect :).Thanks again.

  • http://www.facebook.com/lasse.j.ougaard Lasse Jakobi Ougaard

    This mod is incredible. I’ll be on the GamerCrib server tonight :)

  • http://twitter.com/sigmatc24 Sigmatc

    Thanks so much for this awesome and huge work :)

  • http://www.facebook.com/jukka.karppinen1 Jukka Karppinen

    Haven’t touched any other game since v.3 was released and i think there’s no change coming to this situation anytime soon :) Only brains needed to recalibrate back to GTR2 graphics from pcars but that took only few laps. Loving every moment of playing this fantastic mod, thank you again!

  • http://s1.zetaboards.com/SimSkinsByDen/index/ PetrolheadDen

    The best mod. Truth is the best NEWS as there is really not that much new or greatly advanced otherwise in simracing lately pother than promises and hype. (IE: The arcadey Pcars.)

  • Voltaic

    I wish I could comment. I folowed the instructions carefully, when I click next to load a circuit the game immediately crashes. Any ideas?

  • David Wright
  • Voltaic

    Cheers David, I tried and it is running great, beautiful SIM. Thank you!

    Finally I got to try the mod. So far I have only driven a Ford Mustang Boss and a BMW, but guys, this is one of the best things that had happened to me in a long time.
    Awesome piece of quality and feel, Thank You so Much!

    Lotus 7 #16 for P&G v3 1.0

    http://www.drivingitalia.net/forum/index.php?app=downloads&showfile=4551

    I am loving Nig’s little Lotus 7 for P&G v3, so I need to get a fuller grid.

    This baby is typical of the era, in that the owner/driver would take his road car to the circuit for a day’s racing, hoping not to have to thumb a lift home.

    I had to modify one of the chassis files to get precisely what I wanted (full tonneau, wider screen, speedo and tach), and I wanted a different seat colour (doesn’t affect other cars) but I hope you like the result.

  • Mike Tuppen

    This is not only a great mod the music is fantastic also. Normally, one of the first things I do in a racing game is turn off the music (ie. in GTR2) but I couldn’t turn off this music, it rocks.. so I had to turn it up.
    Thanks for all your work on this mod. It’s great!

    Boo, torrent stuck at 99%, hopefully it will get done tonight, I’m a bit late to the party it seems.
