You're right. After some testing on a Z10 server I have to say everything went as I would expect. Once in disallowed car, I cannot join again, I must choose a new car type. Still I think this correct behavior was not the case until recently. Maybe Jason is using older server version and an update would solve the wrong car type troubles?
Sorry i've been away a bit, but i saw that you implemented this function! Very nice!
However, what i was looking for was a "realtime" telemetry function!
Let me explain.
It should simultaneously as you are shown your split time (e.g. Sector1 36.50) by LFS , show either a red or green text in the same font, right below it, with the difference from your entered !target.
So when you pass the split, you'll know if you're inside or outside your designated target time.
Connect to Torsdagsrace A and type !target and you'll see what i mean.
I've been playing with this for a few hours and have a couple of q's and/or suggestions if it is not yet implemented.
- is there any support for teams for handling points?
- is there a funcionatlity to track teams during an endurance race, to track their number of laps and positions despite disconnects and/or telepits assessing penalties for those situations?
- another great addition would be handling blue flags in these races since the order kept by LFS is not always the real order due to discons and telepits.
Right, I see what you mean. Well, I believe the cleanest solution may be to add one more comparison base among the currenty available (session, personal, LFSW, world's best), specifically selectable target time. You set it up using !target command, then splits and sectors are compared to this measurement. Not bad, really. The necessary adjustments will take some time though, because I have lots and lots of things to implement, some complicated but needed by people that sponsored Airio development, so I must take care of those first. But it is really a good idea, now that I understand it.
1) About teams, you mean like defining two or more drivers whose points will be added? Hm, may be a nice addition, but it is for now too specific.
2) I've already had a request for this, ignoring disconnects/pitting, simply counting race laps done. The same as above applies.
3) Flags are issued by the LFS, there's no way to control those except maybe show some additional messages to specific drivers, like "You may ignore the blue flag...".
Ayway, if these things are implemented, they will with 75 percent probability appear only in the full version as I consider them to be rather on the advanced side.
EDIT: Ah, please be sure to check out the updated language pack. It newly contains finished NL translation and completely new GR (also known as EL) translation by xaotic. Thanks a lot for this. Still missing is the French translation, which is a bit strange knowing how much the French love their language.
Airio would spectate players with reason bad tyres (Road_Normal), despite having set ProhibitedTyres=None both in the global and the track section of Airio.cfg.tc.txt.
After repeatedly editing the config files, grepping them, !rld-ing, !aini-tializing etc, I found out Airio was picking up the ProhibitedTyres directive from the following track in the configuration file (i.e. took it from BL2 and applied to BL1!)
After commenting the line from that track, !rld-ed the config, it started to work as expected. The configuration file had little modifications from the example included in the tracker package, so I'm not attaching it. But in case you need it let me know.
First of all, I'm really liking Airio's funtionality and its ease of use. I'm having one problem at the moment. I'm trying to create a restart message that goes onto several lines, but since I'm quite stupid, I can't work out how to do so. I've tried putting + signs all over the place but none of them work.
I want it to be as follows:
^6Report wrecking at the www.simracingsociety.com forums
^7Have a good race!
Where should the + symbol go?
(I searched the thread using the search tool and found nothing about this and checked the manual, so sorry if this has been asked before)
I had some tracks rotating and it was working fine. Then I wanted to leave one track for our team to train for an event so I deleted the track rotation string from the file and did !rld ... did not work ... I had to do !aini for it to work. Is that normal?
I was planning to use Airio to track championship points in one of our champs but ... I cam to realize the points stored for each track separately ... in other words if we have a champ with 4 o 5 rounds on different tracks with the same class of cars (i.e. GTR or TBO) Airio would not work to track points ... right?
Question: why are championship points tied to the track? A championship is usually a bunch of races opf different tracks ... I know we can use playing points to mimic a championship points but I was wondering.
The server selects the mode automagically depending on: what cars/tracks are available and the number of slots.
Inside Airio you can change the cars with the command !cars, e.g. !cars XFG+XRG, if you want to make that change permanent you'll have to edit Airio.cfg.tc.txt, there you can select both the default cars or on a per-track basis, so they are automatically changed as soon as the track changes (e.g. because of rotation, or because the players have voted End Race)
