Hey there folks...
Am still getting used to Lazy but it's really great.
However, one feature I really miss from Aonio is the beep on "shift light".
Aonio used to beep for upshifts even in cars without the shift light (at configurable RPM) but I think a version then came out without that. I know a few people have asked earlier in the thread about this but it seems to have fizzled out after a few replies.
My suggestion would be to do it the same way as Aonio - not worry about configuring RPM etc. on a per-car basis, but just beep when the shift light comes on (so LFS is doing all the work really). I have no idea how Aonio figured out that the shift light came on of course but I'm sure Daniel will find a way
Cool, adding sound would help enormously. When I'm driving I just don't see the little red light in the LFS console. Also, I will have to go looking for the Lazy shift indicator cos I didn't even know it had one
One comment though on the RPM thing: having a simple threshold like 95% of max RPM is probably fine for many cars (e.g. FBM, BF1, FOX maybe, probably GTIs), but in others - particularly turbos like FXR, MRT, and the whole TBO class - it'll be hopeless because the shift point can be much lower. The MRT is a really extreme case (crazy torque curve), where the shift point can be around 65%!
Some cars like UFR, LX6 & FBM for ex. have shift points set too low.
Also it would be nice to allow configurable RPM (to suit cars with restrictions, tweaks, etc...).
Or trying to use the same as built-in auto' gearbox.
Hmm, not sure what you mean about shift points set too low - you mean within LFS, or Lazy, or Aonio? What's the symptom you are seeing?
And I have no experience with the auto box...
However, my - possibly incorrect - understanding was that the LFS-builtin shift light operates correctly regardless of restrictions. This is what makes it such a nice thing to use instead of faffing with different RPM for different cars (never mind all the different restrictions).
NB: by "operates correctly", I mean that I think it comes on when the power in the next gear up is higher than the current gear. That's probably guesswork on my part though since I'm not sure I've ever seen that written down anywhere. It does tally very well though with my observations of when it comes on, given the differing torque curves in the different cars (I also drive restricted cars like FX2 quite a bit and the optimum shift revs do indeed differ) and the nominal peak-power RPM for each.
OK, found it: it's DL_SHIFT in the OutGauge packets.
I'm puzzled about why you'd use RPM instead of the built-in LFS-provided shift light (for cars that have a shift light). Am I missing something?
Well, I found it in the dashboard setup, but I guess I'm still confused (i.e. noobish) about how the Lazy dashboard works. When I enabled it for FXR it was blank, but for the MRT I could see a working dash, although I still couldn't actually see the shift light coming on (but the dash editor did say it was activating at really high RPM).
