I think we'll go with 2048px when it's time. Though I don't know when that will be. It's the usual thing of setting priorities (for Scawen in this case).

I've updated the registration and details pages now with a bit more info.

Though I agree you should be able to use an entire phonebook as a password, there are upper limits with LFS. For us it's due to packet sizes. Game passwords are sent in typical LFS packets which are limited in size. But I agree it could be implemented in a stronger manner.
Web passwords are sent to a separate, locked down host that only hashes passwords, very strongly. Also using a packet structure with an upper limit for password. But I think 48 bytes is long enough tbh. With no character type limitation. If you're worried about THAT being broken, then I can enable two factor auth for you Wink (the one-time pass kind, like e.g. Google authenticator tool produces)

I've disabled comments for demo users. You now must be logged in and have at least an S1 license to be able to comment. So that also goes for demo setups. Ideally I'd allow demo racers to comment on demo setups, but I'm afraid that'll be abused.
Everyone can still post comments for their own setups though.

Rating has also been disabled for demo racers, for the same reason. I'm considering allowing this again if I can use a better averaging algorithm that takes abuse into account.

Finally I've removed all spammy setup comments (4 or so, out of 125).

Have you tried selecting the card type Visa Debit, on the payment pages?

You can now add your own notes to others' setups as well, provided you are logged in.
I've capped the length to 300 characters at the moment.

The issue has now been resolved. Please download the setup(s) again. They will be correct now.

I'm a bit confused by the report, but the gear ratios in the first screenshot are all wrong at least and not drivable.
So I'm investigating what's going wrong with the hotlap setup extraction. That's where it appears to go wrong.

Quote from Sobis :https://www.lfs.net/files/setups/LX6/WE00

I see Troy got access to this way sooner than us!

Anyway, it's really good that we have an official setup database now. One note: could you make it that when I hover my mouse over the full track name, a little image pops up with the track configuration and it's short name?

I've added all setups that have been uploaded to the forum over the years, as a starting point for the database.

I've added a track preview + short name to the main setups page. You see it when you hover over a track name.
I'm wondering if it should show whenever a track is highlighted, not just when you hover over it.

Tweaks are ok on designated servers. You can recognise them by the 'modified' tag in the list of hosts in LFS.

Hi, yes, you can upgrade at any later time and you only pay the difference, not the full price again.

Quote from Ped7g :
IIRC, FBM did have only six, so 7th is reverse?

ah thanks, that was a bug. Now fixed. It indeed has only 6 gears. Reverse isn't counted.

Quote from three_jump :Cool stuff!

Question for the coders /experts: Would it be possible to write an insim app so I could download setups while being ingame?

It's possible. Daniel-cro already offered to make that, if I provide an API, which I guess will happen soon enough.

Quote from sermilan :An option to select a specific driver's sets would be nice too
(if you have a favorite setup maker whose sets suits you better than others...)

You can now go directly to someone's setups by clicking on a username, anywhere on the site, and selecting Car Setups from the drop down menu.

I've added some bulk-edit features for setting the notification type of all subscriptions at once, or to remove them.
With that I think this topic is done.
Victor
Developer
yes and you can edit setup properties there as well, by selecting a setup from that overview.

Quote from MrSam :Seems like it's only wr setup, not personnal setups

If you are referring to the hotlap setup import, they are regarding all your hotlaps. Not just wr's. In fact, wr's are in no way used for the setups section (except for calculating laptime differences).

Quote from sermilan :Exactly!! Smile
Tnx!Thumbs up

EDIT: btw, just uploaded and made public an [email protected] set, but it's not showing in the table?
Need to add comment on that one, but can't find the way how to (mentioned in my first post on this page)?

As no track for the setup is set, it's in the 'unknown tracks' listing :

Quote from 1303s_vortech :A little of topic (sorry about it) but how to show "attachements" which were uploaded before the "new site" ?

There is currently no page where you can view your uploaded attachments, if that is what you mean.

Ah a bug had creeped into the settings page. It will save that setting again.

But was that your only bug? You say you still receive notifications, which is correct, because of the subscriptions you already have. Those will stay on their email setting. So in order to receive no more notifications you'd have to adjust your existing subscriptions.
But I see that's a bit hard to do with no multi-select option. Will have to look at that soon (i want to do some forum work anyway over the couple next days).
The new Files section
Victor
Developer
I would like to introduce the new Files section of this website.

The first category of files it contains is car setups. The need for a central repository arose when it became apparent that the existing ones were no longer properly maintained.
So now if you are in need of a new setup for a certain car / track combination or purpose, the new Files section will be a good place to start. You can filter by classification and access level and sort by a range of values. The default is sorted by Rating. That reminds me to hint at you that setups can be rated, if you are logged in.
You are also encouraged to upload your own setups, so that the collection can grow and be as useful as possible. You can classify your setups, indicate which track(s) they can be used on, add notes and set accessibility (Public, Team and Private).
If you have hotlaps uploaded at LFS World, you can also import all or some of the setups used with them, with a few clicks. These extracted setups will remain bound to the hotlap, which makes for an interesting piece of information to show alongside all other car setup details.

I think this first section will be very useful for many people. The idea is to add more file categories in the future, making it even more useful.

Enjoy!

Hm yeah the system will skip setups that are 100% equal to one you already have in your collection.
It will now add the tracks to that already uploaded setup though, so you don't have to manually do that.
You can safely import those hotlap setups again to try.

hmyeah it checks to see if you have 1.25GB available. I guess that's a bit greedy for a patch.
Victor

hmyeah, seems it's the wrong way around. I've fixed it in my version.

Would be nice to have more realtime renders, but pretty low on my list of things to do! Smile

Just a check on these words : drift, dr!ft, rally, sprint, endu, cruise, stunt, drag, quali
