simpler than the setups
Also simpler then driving around on a server with illegal admin status?

Quote from Draggo :
Scawen?

From LFS memory. It is very easy.

Thanks but I would have liked to hear it from him. Of course he doesn't want to say it.

Another nail into the coffin of league racing. First setup stealing and now this. And the excuse is 'fuel cheating' this time? LFS looses more and more popularity because of these 'race' options. Turning a race simulator rapidly into a toy simulator.

Yes

You forget about "Engine damage", and excuse is "ppl use that to get more power to a car".

You exaggerate, for sure is not a major cause of loss of interest.
True, a nail is not very big

But if you look from a race organizer point of view and you see all this happen -basically pit stop strategies are now worthless as well- Then you can say, OK LFS is not really the place to be anymore to organize something serious. If thats the objective of all this, then fine. I just don't understand. Especially not when there is official permission to do this. And then making movies about reality? Meh..

But eehh I am not going to make a very big discussion out of it in this topic, it's not worth it.
Any other new Dashboards?
Quote from nacim :Is the dashboard backlighting off when lights are off ?

Well, I'm not quite sure that dashboard backlight on newer cars is affected only by lights, I guess I have some kind of light sensor built into aswell... So for now I made that its backlighting off with ignition.

Quote from cargame.nl :Permission from who? How do you retrieve all fuel data from all drivers?

Before release I've talked to both Scawen and Victor about the features of program. I can easily remove it, if that makes you any happier. I don't wanna that this kinky stuff is hiding programs real worth.
Fuel can be retrieved from both memory and by packet sniffing. As you can see from some posts above this is known and used for very long time now. Then again what good does it make if small amount of people have such an info...
P.S. If I don't instantly reply, that doesn't mean I don't want to. Tommorow I'll be practically whole day away.

Quote from Litro :Any other new Dashboards?

For now 1303s_vortech has made UF1 and MRT, recently I've improved my XFG and started making some XRG on the weekend... Honestly I hoped for much more interest in making dashes, isn't it enough that I've made the system, now I've have to do textures aswell (1303s_vortech is only exception)
Quote from DANIEL-CRO :I can easily remove it, if that makes you any happier.

It's already out now so it doesn't matter. Memory hacking you have basically with all games, but there is a difference between publicly known or being just known on the darker side of the internet. I just wanted to speak out my concerns about this ongoing degradation of racing. It doesn't make me more happy or less happy, I already know the racing scene is going to end sooner or later @LFS and developments like these only acknowledges it but what I don't want to read back at a later stage is things like "why nobody never mentioned something about it??!". -Fuel cheating- which I think is/was something in the wild, could easily be prevented by CPW in my believes, so I think it's the wrong excuse to bring such an option like this 'on the market'.

Have a nice day tomorrow
This custom gauges stuff should be implemeted right into LFS, just like your texture optimizer Great work.

You know lazy people using LFSLazy.
Quote from Litro :Any other new Dashboards?

I'll probably work on a XR gauge when the next version is out.

EDIT : @Daniel : Please do a correct XR positioning for background (align the 3 little gauges and let people move gauges everywhere (like the fuel gauges on the closest little gauge (left one in LWD). PM me if you need more explainations Thanks

Quote from z0rnd1k3 :have the same problem.
install vanilla lfs, disable Avast, close Steam, Origin, but nothing helps. that message about hooking still appears (Lazy - Overlay : Cannot create overlay. Another program already hooked LFS?). My radar also disappears after update to build 20 (before it works fine).

Previous build checked some other functions that are needed to create Dashboard, probably they were used by some other program in your case. In latest build functions for Radar and Dashboard are checked separately, which means that Radar should work if it worked previously, however Dashboard will obviously fail in your case. I've added more infomation to error now, and you should see module which use that function.

now it shows "Lazy - Overlay : Cannot create dashboard (EN). Another program already hooked LFS?".
radar is ok now, thanks !

I'm getting the same error ("Lazy - Overlay : Cannot create dashboard (EN). Another program already hooked LFS?"), did you fixed it?? If yes, how??

Yes, go to Options, and uncheck the adress verification.

I can't find "adress verification"... on the LFSLazy window Options (Under "Other" tab) and neighter ongame LFSLazy Options

Well... I think i know my problem... I don't have the address option...

I downloaded the first page DOWNLOAD, it says that i need to extract but the download is a .exe file... is it right?

I tested the positions list recently and I must say relative positions list is a great stuff!

Further request: is it possible to have the server bookmarks? Also ability to remember the tab on the main menu widget. So when you open LFS you see the bookmarked servers and then connect it right a way.

And one more question. Is there any ways to contribute or maybe even source opening?

Thanks anyway, keep it up.

nacim has little newer version which has that feature (looking at change log). I plan to release new version in next few days, but still waiting for some responses.

Quote from vitaly_m :I tested the positions list recently and I must say relative positions list is a great stuff!.

Thanks! There is still room for an improvement, for example what bugs me the most is where there is approximately half lap difference between cars its "unstable" (switching before/after). Sorting is done by nodes in MCI, that alone wasn't that precise so I had to make it a bit more intelligent by recording and comparing info with the exact timestamp for every car on track.

Flame CZE requested some time ago "Favourite servers", and I've done that recently. Preview in attachment.
Ability to rememeber tab, does that reffer to buddies/servers/replays in entry menu?

Quote from vitaly_m :

LFSLazy isn't a small project, right now it has more than 700KB of code all written by myself. It is written in C, with a tiny bit of classes (so called "objective C") where it actually make sense (memory/performance wise). So far when I shared bits of code, well ... I'd say it wasn't understood well. If you would like some changes feel free to suggest here/pm, I'd say I'm relatively fast at implementing nice suggestions so that shouldn't be a problem. Ways to contribute at the moment is probably creating dashboard textures Big grin Latest version can autoinstall textures in case there aren't for specific car. That should make whole process much easier I believe.

Oh, I thought it was already on the lastest available version. ^^'

Yes, you get it right Smile

Thanks for all the answers I will look into those gadgets stuff...
I dunno why but XFG total distance odometer fails at some point.

I know Big grin

UINT overflow. Fixed in my version Big grin
About "/o dash". Is it (or will it be) possible to switch background picture depending on RPM? So that we can make something different for formula cars?

Or maybe there is other way to implement custom indicators?
I didn't look much into forumula cars for now. I do not see the reason to change complete background texture at different rpms, however what could be done is like LEDs which light up as rpm rises or linear gauge if you understand what I mean.

Ye, that will do. But there are lot customisation possible -- different led colors for specific RPM (different texture or just color adjust?), size, margin to each other... Kinda a lot of work to do if you want to make it flexible.
