Finally got around to looking back at the code today, the bug was as expected, I have fixed it and re-uploaded the zip. RaceAbout setups now open fine. Otherwise no changes since the Christmas Eve release.
I have a 1024 resolution and large fonts, so some part of interface is missing. Here's a screenshot.
And there's no way to see the whole thing untill I'll set large fonts off (I guess, haven't tried it yet).
Anyway, thanks for the tool )
That's a bug, whichever speed units you were using when you clicked "test acceleration" will be the correct figures. When you change speed units, it changes the test distances but does not recalculate acceleration so that the figures remain correct.
Thanks for reminding me, I'll fix that my end now.
I've spent the passed few days adding missing features, playing with the GUI, generally tidying up. Thought I'd give you an update before I get stuck into the final couple of sections (springs/dampers & steering). Progress is slow atm though, so much report writing to do for it.

Hopefully it addresses the some of the issues raised previously.
Edit: found some interesting info
1. Googling for setup analyser brings up the LFS Wiki entry for my advanced setup guide as the top result, where I mention Colcob's old tool.
2. Having checked my webstats, and despite no advertisement of this WIP app by myself (aside from this thread), there have been so far 1,111 downloads of the December test release as of last night. Not bad for 6 weeks, that's 26 every day - or about the same as the combined downloads for GRC and the setup guide are currently racking up. So it seems to have sparked some interest anyway.
Cannot say much besides FINISH THIS AWESOME THING ALREADY!
Only things I noticed so far is that on the Tyres tab, the zoom sliders for tyre side view and contact patch work exactly the opposite (moving down zooms in on the side view, but moving down zooms out on the contact patch one), and on the Auto Space Gearing dialog, the percentage label isn't hidden if you select anything but Adjustable Progressive. Yeah I know, these are real showstoppers
Yeah, two little issues I keep forgetting to fix. I'm adding them on my latest to-do list now.
In all honesty it'll probably takes a few months of people using it regularly to create sets (once it's "finished", of course, or at least feature complete) for any real issues to be brought up.
Having just installed Vista I can confirm that it runs fine under Vista but you need to use "Run as Administrator" the first time so the OCX files be can registered. After that it runs just like in XP (and previous).
230 downloads and only Android comments? That's a shocking percentage People usually only post when there's a problem though, so I'll take it as a good sign. Anyway, enough of that...
Good news! Only someone sad like me would rememeber but it's 3 years exactly (well, it will be in 2 hours time but I'll be asleep by then) since I first posted a copy of GRC v1.0, so on this glorious anniversary I'll release another update of it's evolutionary successor.
Obviously not a huge amount has changed in the past 9 days, of most impact as that I've added the rest of the GUI settings elements so you can now save the setups you create/open, which I figure is kinda handy and means you can actually start using this as intended.
Oh and AndroidXP will be happy, his 2 little bugs are gone. Also check out the new snazzy tyre drawing while you're at it.
I'm ready to hit some meaty stuff now, thankfully the analysis itself usually takes a lot less time than everything else.
I see what you're getting at, although the file should still be perfectly readable (only ride height should be a bit borked). I could make it so, if you have a setup open, and then change car, it automatically closes the file. That way if you try to save, it will revert to "Save As" and you will have to pick/type in a filename. Does that sound good?
