niiice, just looks like it could be a little in the way. how long did it take you to make this thing?
Yea.. i can add some scaling later via INI file, just need some public interest first

and i think it would look nice over the throttle, brake and clutch bars on the right of the screen if thats possible, fun little thing you made
cool, will try it as soon as i play LFS the next time!
That is some sweeeeet add-on!!!
Not too crazy about the angle meter, but the G-Meter is too good for words.
Is it possible have the mod with only the G-Meter?

Great work

Great work

Same here, I really want a G-Meter, a graded G-Meter.
Can you make is smaller and in the corner?
I'll be giving this a try in a bit, should be usefull for a drift comp.

I had 1 problem with it and that was when I exited LFS, I got an error message.
does anybody know where i can find some good driftng replays?

i need some for testing purposes and im not that good of a drifter


note: i only have the demo
... Great work !

awsome, just needs to be smaller and in the corner, as jesse said.
Ah c'mon, only 90 degrees :P

Nice work nevertheless.
Nice app, there
Keep up the good work
Quote from motary :Ah c'mon, only 90 degrees :P

Nice work nevertheless.

isnt more then 90 considered going backwards, which is a spin?

some drifters can pull 120 degree drifts.

really? i'm not sure, i was just copying the one from NFS Underground.... the 1st one

there is a few bugs with this one, especially when spinning and going in reverse... im thinking to make a points system like NFS so that has to be fixed

what do you think?

I think that if you're going to keep adding to it, please make each part of it optional (and hopefully position-adjustable), so that (as an example) people who choose to can have nothing but the Gball and not the angle meter/points system.
That is awesome

It's All I can say..
Nice! Good for drifters/gripper like me.
Thats a great idea. I haven't tried it yet, id rather wait until its a little out of the way. But its good for drifters and racers. New drifters can make sure they dont get too much angle and spin, racers will know when they start sliding so they can correct.

It would be really cool if you could just place that needle where the Temperature gauge is, since it pretty much serves no function anyway. That way, its out of the way, but in a convienent spot.

Is that possible?
love the idea, but it defintly needs to be moved.

i have ocd and it really annoys me

LFS won't start if d3d8.dll exists in the root-folder. It worked in 1.1
