Ran into a problem . I didn't touch nothing. i restarted my computer and then i try to run it again and it didn't show any of my friends ,they locations, or any hosts servers . Also 3 other people said only thing they see is 0 on lfsw stats. and dont see the country anyone is from and no hosts data.
From what can I see it looks like a temporary issue with LFSW. Probably you also saw message something like "invalid gzip", this happens from time to time. Only thing I can do is improve detection of invalid data and not parse it. For LFSW stats, it should be back to normal after next stats update (if LFSW is fine) or you can force update by right clicking username.
Awesome work as always!
Some of new stuff in dash:
Text - digital turbo, split time, date, range distance
Linear gauges - speedo, rpm, fuel, turbo
Gauges - temperature, oil temperature
Hi Daniel, I have a feature suggestion for LFSLazy. How about an .mpr autosave feature which saves the .mpr only if certain conditions are met?For example: if pb, if lap is better than WR+0.5%, if you raced(or ur har driv will be full of shizz if ur spectatoring lol D: ).
You can also add custom name... for example show in the .mpr name the best lap you did along with the best split/sector times, maybe even the lap when it was done. You get the idea?
Most of the .mpr's I save have the best lap I did in their names. So, I believe it would be a nice feature for us lazy racers to have to laze more and have not to go through the ass pain it takes to name them. Sometimes I lose good replays because I don't have enough time to save the replay, I save the next race instead, so this means I actually lose 2 good replays.
That is very lazy suggestion
I imagine it looks simple from your point, however there are certain problems with how LFS record replays. For example once replay is saved you cannot any longer save it. Other question is when it should be saved? I guess if you do a PB on 2nd lap out of 5, you still would like to have whole race in replay. And what if race suddenly restarts? Many, many questions and problems...
Though I understand you, many of us want replays of special moments and I found out that MPR autosave causes least trouble for me. It will simply always save MPR independently of its content and if its the special one later I usually append short description to its name.
I don't know how skilled you are .
If you can somehow detect if a race is restarting (you can try to count votes of people for ''sudden restart'' but dunno about insim restart lol? and restart detection should not be like ''race is starting'' notification which probably looks at timer) then this problem will likely be solved. Because you can program it to save mpr just when restart is detected and every mpr would contain the whole race just like the built-in autosave. And for naming, you may not need to go very deep in details, maybe just like Hotlaps, for example BL1_XRG_13285_4... I think it can work, but it will be very buggy at the beggining .
EDIT: i just reminded that insim restart is admin/host restart...
I don't want to bother with restart issues and such ...
Though your suggestion intrigued me, perhaps I could append a description. When I think a little more, lap time shouldn't be the only criterion. Sometimes I'd like to save replay if some heavy crash occur, or if a buddie do a good lap (hey, world is not all about you) and so on...
Infact how many people would use such a feature? I have feeling that it would be yet another piled up feature which only few people would use, right? I often get question on pm or server about basic stuff in LFSLazy from people who I thought have already mastered LFSLazy.
I have another 'lazy' suggestion based on previous discussion
Sometimes something good/interesting happens in the race and I want to save mpr when the race ends, but in the finish I ofcourse forget to save it...
So why not to add a reminder feature.
example: I have some nice battle midrace and want to save it later, I hit the scroll button - scroll to reminder - choose one of availaible descriptions (battle/crash/flight/PB/etc) - confirm. And once you cross the finish line, LFSlazy tells you to save mpr with the reason you've chosen earlier.
by 1303s_vortech : dashboards released
I've had a lot of mph guys complining how dashboard does not support mph, so I decided to make a separate backgroundmph.jpg which is used in case mph is selected in LFS. All new dashboards also include mph versions! To update dashboards delete old folders in LFSLazy\Gauges\ ...
Great thanks goes to 1303s_vortech!
He is the one that created all these dashboards which now we can enjoy
Those linear indicators are just great! I already tried RPM indicator. I still don't understand them completely... Like how exactly setting min and max % work... What do 0 and 100% mean? If I have 0 then I get like 3 divisions lighten up when idling.
Just have to spend some time until I can find out how to something useful for perfect shift ups. Also this shift up indicator is great
If you drive without enabled wheel, choose no_wheel version. If you happen to drive with wheel sometimes, use with_wheel version (it works okay in both situations, also sometimes you enable wheel to spectate someone, so this variant is more universal).
Do I get it right that LFSLazy can read LFS memory space and extract remaining fuel of anyone on track on a server?
Yeah nice cheat... :/
Setups... kaput (you can export setups from SPR, MPR and also get them live by being on a server)
Fuel... kaput (read LFS memory space?)
Scawen should really update LFS...
DANIEL looks like a nice work, might check the dash and setup filtering, not sure how useful is the rest for me but others probably find it useful. All the insim virtual dash pieces and other distracting thingies.
Graphical hooks to draw stuff, I think that's fine, lots of programs do that, video/screenshot recorders, steam, GPU utilities, ...
Though for me, any tempering with process memory space of a game is categorized as cheating :|
You might as well make a NOS button or god mode, same thing as reading fuel of other players from LFS memory space.
