LFS Replay Analysers work by reading a RAF file created by Live for Speed and displaying the data in their own way on graphs or map displays.
To create a RAF file, record a single player replay and then watch the replay. At any time during the lap BEFORE the lap you wish to analyse, press ESC and click on "Output lap data" and type in a name for the RAF file. Output will start when the car crosses the finish line. The RAF will be stored in the "lfs\data\raf" folder.
The SMX files are required for the replay analyser to display an image of the track. Click this link to download the SMX files. Create a "smx" folder inside your "lfs\data" folder and place the contents of this zip file in that folder.
