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 (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).
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.
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.
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).
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 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.
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.
