Works fine for me both at work and at home. I have recently switched to a UK based server rather than a US based on, so it's possible there are still DNS propogation issues. Hopefully in another 24 hours the site will be accessible.
Hi Bob, I am getting a problem window that says "incorrect vehicle data file version" when I try to run the updated version 3.1.1. I have to hit O.K 20 times before VHPA runs and states "Analysis not available while creating / editing a vehicle. I did select LFS mode in the installer.
Any Ideas on what's causing this?
BTW the last version was working fine..
Bob, small little thingie, maybe make the big image on the front page a direct DL link when you click the download bit of it? Confused me for 5 seconds before I realized "OMG, THIS REQUIRES ANOTHER CLICK!"
Maybe it's just me being lazy, but most pages that I've seen having programs for download, the main DL link is on the main page in an obvious place, with additional downloads being on the seperate DL page.
Also, I get the "Incorrect Data Version" error, like 15 times, before going into the program, where it crashes when I try to load a .set.
Indeed, sorry for that bug, the one set of flies I forgot to copy over into the release folder from the dev folder. This is what happens when you release late at night when you're a bit tired: you make a mistake and then everyone has to wait for you to sleep until you can fix it. Anyay, if you download the installer again, it should work now. I even tested it this time!
Hey Bob, All running now & can open sets no problem however on opening a new set via File - Open (Ctrl-O) menus the car picture does not update to the correct car for that set, it stays as the UF1 picture that is loaded on start-up??
Ah, thanks, I can confirm that I can reproduce that. Will look at fixing that bug tonight. It's not just the picture either, but none of the vehicle data displayed is updated either. It is using the new car though, so analysis should still be accurate.
If it really bothers you, you can click edit vehicle, followed by update vehicle, to force that code to run. Or enable the "filter setups on open" option, and thus force yourself to pick the right car first.
Aha, well noticed, will fix that at my end tonight. [note to self] Need to grey out the bias bar options in the disc brake calculator when 1 master cylinder is used too. [/note to self]
For the curious, I totalled up the downloads for VHPA since launch; excluding November when my webstats weren't working, it's accumulated over 8000 downloads so far (assuming Webalizer's figures are accurate).
I'd have only had about 5 downloads so far? I have received 4 donations so far though, all of which I am thankful for.
Am I hoping to sort out a commercial licencing system (of sorts) though, as a couple of companies have expressed some interest. So that's a document to draw up, which would only need result in a couple of sales a month to equal the pay I get from work (I'm not stupid and going to let this go cheap), although tbh that's a figure far in excess of what I'm likely to achieve (at least to begin with, I need to find ways to increase the program's exposure).
