Znam koristim i ja F12,al nekako mi zaklanja pogled,i u trkama kao što smo imali u subotu 170 krugova KY1 moram imati uvid u sve :rally_dri
Ma nema potrebe da se toliko opterećuješ oko toga.

Pred trku, dok treniraš, proveriš kolika ti je maksimalna potrošnja, i po tome sipaš gorivo, praviš taktiku za zvaničnu trku...

Ja F12 u trci koristim samo za podešavanje taktike u toku trke - pit stop, a uvek držim upaljeno F9, da pratim stanje guma...

Hi AID! I know but the LFS RELAX digi speedo does not work on cars that already have digi speedo by default! The default is not good for me

I am a cheater with wheel view 240 wheel rotation and a CUSTOM huge digi speedo meter nearly in the middle of my screen!

I asked MR. Gai-Luron to unlock it on all cars but i did not receive any answer!

I still have the Win Xp/Lfs/My hardware compatibility network lag problem and i dont think there is any solution for it. So i have to use a different op system if i want to use my custom speedo. I didnt try Vista x32 yet. Anybody using this programme under Vista x32???

I tried to contact Marek about the solution but it looks like he is too busy to help.

i found info in some thread (LfsRelax i think), that recompiling under x64 system solves problem
dll's source code is available (dg_d3d8 project), VC++ Express is also free to download...

im not planning pc upgrade soon, so dont count on me here, sorry :/

well technically, it does not work on windows 7 x64.
i have x64 installed as well, and could not make it to load correctly.
its probably some kind of x64-x32 dll incompatibility by windows itself.
gru suggested recompiling the d3d8.dll to x64 might help.
well i could not recompile that with visual studio express. i will might try with the pro version later which currently i dont have.
as gru said :
"if it won't help, the only way will be changing communication to udp"

which is a process clearly surpassing my tiny developer knowledge in this :|
Is there another way to get a digital speedo in Win 7 64 Bit?

hello

x64 problem is solved, download link in first post is updated (ds_1.0.2_x86.zip)


Solution, info for programmers using my source code:
At first DigitalSpeedo.exe was compiled with "Any CPU" option, so on x86 it was 32bit, and on x64 it was 64bit. d3d8.dll is always 32bit, so 64bit process can't load it, that's all (and it took me over a year to realize that :doh
So to make them work, U have to recompile DigitalSpeedo.exe for x86 platform (VS Express 2008 help link: http://social.msdn.microsoft.c ... 1-4ead-96a1-78bbd9ba6d3a/)
Finally!
