GamePT 1.8 is out!

GamePT (SimPT) 1.8 is here! After less than a month of work in progress, the Freedom Update is ready to roll! Why it’s called like that?

GamePT (SimPT) since first release to this day actually only supported two games – F1 Challenge ‘99-’02 and rFactor. It was closed system, which you’ve couldn’t modify in any way (except Shortcuts).

Today new profiles system is introduced. With Testarossa (because that’s how is called new profile system) you can create your own tiles and own Game tab. With tiles you can open programs, or PLR Editors for rFactor and F1 Challenge ‘99-’02.

But with custom Game tab you can copy, remove, or move files. You can also modify config files of programs very easily.
