    Well done. I played around a little and of course put myself in the game with a realistic 9pt average

    Very interested in how you lot are getting in with updating rider details. I will need to have a closer look once I get the computer back. Glad to see after so long we have this game up and running.

    Very quick guide how I got the game working. Don't have computer to hand (wife using it for work) so apologies for any mistakes will double check this evening. 1. Install a VirtualBox (I used one from oracle). 2. Download windowsXP (or 98 if preferred). I googled 'Windows XP for Virtual Box' and found one pretty easy. 3. Run VirtualBox create new 'box' for windows XP. I followed all the steps and didn't change any settings (Used default settings). Was prompted to find downloaded Windows XP to load from (I put file on desktop for ease). 4. Go through Windows installation (this took longest time for me). 5. Once complete and running XP I installed Guest Additions (was found in the devices menu) 6. Once guest additions installed I could drag the Speedway Promoter file (which was still compressed) from my win 10 desktop to XP desktop. 7. Unzipped speedway promoter files then copied these into the GDW2002 folder under windows folder (found in my computer icon in start menu). 8. Played game by opening from same folder copied files into. This is the way I done it. I am by no means an expert and others may have done it different and got it working.

    Yeah copied those files into the GDW file. It's a little nostalgia trip looking at the riders. Maybe only 6 still riding.

    Happy to say iv got it working. There goes my weekend plans. Extra info. The game tends to freeze on me often. If you save regularly it shudnt be a problem to just close it down and load up. Does eventually un freeze but can take a few mins.

    Iv still not had time to try using win98 or 2000 (previously I used XP). I don't hold out much hope for either. Iv not got FS. Does anyone have a copy of that available?

    First couple attempts I was having trouble transfering the game from my normal desktop to my virtualbox desktop then computer poo'd itself and gave up. Going to try from scratch on the better one when I get time.

    Will keep you all updated but I manged to get the game running using a Virtualbox with Windows XP (from my Windows 10 laptop) however each new screen appeared ontop of each other rather than replacing, made the game unplayable. Running a new virtualbox on win98 now see if that's any better.

    What the fork
  13. Looking forward to this and really good idea to hold it after Cardiff IMO. As long as the start time isn't to late that's my only concern.

    Great news. Holding fixtures on a Fri night should attract a decent attendance. Expect both Miller brothers to be in the team. Could Lawson make an appearance to lead the team?
