I don't understand. From what I can tell you have two skins uploaded. I see those in your screenshot.
So you must mean something else.
"shows on the preview but not on the car" - there's only ever been a preview hover. There's not been any on-car rendering.

Regarding controller type, I don't necessarily have that information. Only if a setup is extracted from a hotlap can I know what controller was used with it. So for full usability that would have to become one more option people have to fill in themselves.

Setup names can now be edited. You can use pretty much any UTF8 character you like, and LFS colour codes are allowed as well. Note that setup names can only be 15 (normal) characters long.

I've also done some track and class auto detection on the existing setups. The same check will also be applied to newly added setups.

It's now :
- All setups
- My team setups
- My private setups
- My public setups
- My setups
Victor

That setup was set to private, but was also a forum post attachment. And in that case it automatically becomes public again. I'm now displaying public in that case.

The filtering issue should be solved now, too.

EDIT - one thing i wonder about though .. if you set a setup to Team, and then set the browsing filter to private, you won't see that setup at the moment.
The logic now is that you only want setups set to Private. But my mind tells me that when I set the filter to Private, I want my setups. But then I'd have to change the wording of the filter, as its meaning slightly changes.

I wonder how you see it?

EDIT 2 - the filter would then have these options :
any setups
my team's setups
my setups
Victor
Developer
I've added an extra filter for private / team (+private) / any.
I've removed the submit button as that's just an annoying extra click.
Your settings now also persist for the duration of your browsing session, for consistency.

I definitely see the relevance and will think about it for a bit.

Hm there's no such list atm. It's just that any team member's setups will now be visible in the existing lists, where previously they would not (as well as setup details page and setup download), provided they have set the setup access level to Team.

I suppose you would like a way to only see team setups?
Victor
Developer
Team access to setups is now functional as well.
The team editor on lfsworld still needs to be used to compose the members of a team, which is an editor that can do with improvement .. but the access bit on the setup side here works at least.

Is now shown for those cars that have it.

Quote from pik_d :The old setup names seem to have confused the file attachment setup grabber.

For example there are plenty of unknown setups named "FXO_GTR" or "FZ5_GTR" listed under FXO or FZ5 instead of FXR and FZR.

Quote from mbutcher :A filtering issue:

1) https://www.lfs.net/files/setups
2) Filter by: Drift
3) Click the sole LX4 setup in 'Unknown Track'

It displays 115 LX4 setups instead of just one.

Fixed both of these.

Was just fixing that one too Smile
Victor

ouch, no that was a bug! Fixed.
Victor

oh right, wrong green there. Fixed that. (my test hotlaps are all red .. ahem)

Quote from DANIEL-CRO :As far as I tested I can see that there is not curruption check (header, file to short,...).

hmm, on setup extraction? I definitely check for file length and do a whole bunch of header checks. I can do some more sanity checks on the body though (and have now).

Quote from DANIEL-CRO :
Other than that, short description of each setup would be nice.

On import hotlap setups page, distance to benchmark is hard to read (you probably know that already). Anyway, distance to WR would make much more sense IMO...

Great work so far! I'm sure it will be great. Thumbs up

If you provide a protocol (like Relay) to access setup database, I'll happily implement it to LFSLazy. Wink

How do you mean a short description? The ability to add one? Or are you missing seeing notes anywhere? I do still have to add the ability for anyone to add a note to any setup, in general.

I considered wr vs benchmark and thought benchmark was a bit more interesting because it gives you a bit better idea of how relatively good your hotlaps are. If you only see green, then you are doing very well! It's not possible to show that with the WR time only. Ideally I'd show both like on lfsworld, but there's no room in the table left.

An api would be nice to have yep. Probably will have to make one anyway if LFS itself wants to download them at some point.

Oh about distance to benchamark not being readable .. it reads fine here. Not sure what you're seeing. Maybe can do a screenie?
I am however known for being very bad with colours though Big grin

I suppose it's debatable whether a Favorites option would be preferred instead of copying a setup and adding it to your own collection.
Victor
Developer
Quote from pik_d :The "Add to collection" seems to cause some issues. What is its intended purpose?

Whenever you add your collection, it sets them as public and then reposts the same setup under the name of whoever added it to their collection. Shown here:

mbutcher added my UF1/BL1 set to his collection, and now it's shown as public and also on the "Latest Car Setups" list, even though he didn't upload it. If you click on the hotlap time on the line with his name, it links to my hotlap. Also shown in this image is the two XRR/KY2R sets of mbutcher that I added to my collection. It says I just uploaded them.

The purpose of it is to be able to add a setup to your own collection. That can be useful if (hopefully) scawen integrates this setup stuff with LFS. You then have your own copy to work with.

I do need to de-duplicate these setups so they don't both show in the public lists. But need to think that through a bit.

Thanks for the tests and reports so far.

Quote from pik_d :When importing hotlap sets, they should be given the hotlap class.

I imported 121 sets, I don't want to have to go through each of them to set them to the "Hotlap/Qualify" Classification.

Ah that's annoying. Fixed that. However, you may have to delete those hotlap setups and import them again. Should be easier than going through each of them individually.

I'll be having a look at the rest tomorrow. Think I'm done for today.

Here is the url for the public pages : https://www.lfs.net/files
This will get its own link in the menu bar, but for now i'm keeping the link in this thread only, so you guys can give it a test.
The main setup listing is a bit empty atm, but that's because pretty much all of the current setups were imported from forum attachments, for which I had no classification or track usage data.
Hopefully people will fill in this information and that reminds me I need to make those values editable more easily, directly before or after upload.
Victor
Developer
ok thanks, those should be fixed now. Try again please.
Victor
Developer
Could you try once again? I will then get some more debug information and can have a closer look.
You can simply and safely select all your hotlaps and import them again. It will skip those that are already imported.
Victor
Developer
Ok the next part is now available : hotlap setup import.
If you have hotlaps uploaded at LFS World, you will see an "Import your hotlap setups" button on your setups page.
Clicking that will give you an overview of your hotlaps allowing you to select from which you want to extract the setups. You can also indicate the access level you want to give them (private, team, public).
The importer will automatically fill in all car setup details like the track it was driven on and it will keep a record of the hotlap it was extracted from, so that this information can be printed on other pages. That reminds me I still have to do that.

The public setup browser is coming along nicely and is nearing completion. Could be out later tonight, or otherwise tomorrow.
Victor
Developer
Ah now I see. Fixed that in my version.
Victor
Developer
fixed these a while ago.
Victor
Developer
heh, how can i live with myself Big grin

fixed now.

PS
Quote from Neilser :Slightly surprising that the code uses different basic text for the two parts of the message, no?

Actually I have two templates - one for plain text and one for html. So it's not that weird.
Yes, I suppose I could create a mechanism that converts the html version to plain text but just can't be bothered in this case.
