Hello,

this is follow up thread from the original WMD forum. Here you can report bugs, ask questions or post suggestions.

Below is a download link and brief description how to use it with the game. There is no detailed manual at the moment, but since here are many Profiler experts from WMD, I believe we can do without it for now.

/////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////

The latest version is available for download here (https://www.dropbox.com/s/l73ndn0b6ru6eqz/TomShane.Profiler.Setup.exe?dl=0).

/////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////

Information:

Requires .NET Framework 4.5 to run.
Allows to create new file, save it and open later.
Allows to connect live pCARS session and record data.
Allows to analyze and compare laps.
Allows to configure custom gauges and graphs.

How to use (with pCARS running and Shared Memory enabled):

Run application and go to File -> New (Ctrl-N).
Connect pCARS with Tools -> Connect (Ctrl-C or global Ctrl-Shift-C).
Switch to game and start a session, once lap timer starts, recording starts as well.
Run few laps and watch live data in the Profiler (live data are displayed in 30sec/1000m window).
When you switch to Profiler, session is automatically paused and you can work with charts (zooming, scrolling with mouse/mouse wheel).
If the session is not paused, some controls (lap panel and chart) are locked from interaction.
You can set overlay laps for comparison.

How to enable Shared Memory in pCARS:

Run game and navigate to [Options & Help].
Click [Visuals] menu item.
On the [Hardware] tab set [Use Shared Memory] to [Yes].

FAQ


Q: What channels/values the application allows to display?
A: These (http://forum.projectcarsgame.com/showthread.php?23284-pCARS-Profiler-(Telemetry-amp-Analysis)-PC-ONLY&p=897347&viewfull=1#post897347) channels are currently available.

Q: Where can I find inner and outer tire temperatures, ride height or anything else?
A: See the answer above. If it is not listed there, it is most likely not available via API and will be added as soon as SMS make these values available.

Q: Can I record or see other cars on the track?
A: Nope, the Profiler records or displays only your car.

Q: Can I change application theme somehow?
A: The application currently uses only Dark theme, which cannot be changed.


KNOWN ISSUES


Session sometimes gets split or records invalid laps.
There are various causes for this, but the main problem being inconsistent state signalization by the game API.

Application keeps recording while user is monitoring other cars.
I'm investigating the issue.

Application sometimes crashes when working with windows and layouts.
Most of time the crash is caused by 3rd party components I'm using. For now don't get too wild with your layouts.

For some reason this doesn't work for me.

I have installed it correctly + got the .NET 4.5 update.

I open the profiler, click new and then I click connect.

When I open pCars and race it can't seem to connect to the profiler, it doesn't give any data.

Cheers, hopefully WMD will see fit to provide the other data. Unless I'm being stupid (highly possible), there is no way currently to see your tyre pressures on track which is vexing.

Good stuff man, was using it last night and helped me figure out my tire temp issue. Fixed that in a jiffy. Wishing WMD would include a tire pressure in the API.

Either way, no bugs or issues with me. Good work man!

Not really that useless, Tire Rev helps to show if you are spinning your wheels to much. All the damage ones give you an idea if you need to pit for repair. However there currently is a request thread on WMD by the developers of these applications to have more information for the game via the API. I believe suspension travel is on that list however I'll double check.

Edit - 32-Suspension positions (requested additions) on the list of requested features in the SDK/API thread on the WMD forums.

Hello guys,

Recently I'm getting certain error reports from my integrated reporting tool, which I'm not able to reproduce on my machine.

I'd like to ask everyone if you encounter an error you are getting regularly and know how to reproduce it, please, fill some lines in the report window, to help me understand what you were doing when the application crashed.

The particular error I'm currently after displays call stack (the detail area) like this:

It supports local and remote mode, so the application can be placed on the second monitor or run from another computer.

How use the remote mode? :D

12-05-2015, 21:27
just wanted to say thanks a lot for the app, very useful even for idiots like me who cant read telemtry in grabbing data that for some reason i cant get in-game.


...annnd i guess also ask, is the layout you show in the first screen included as a preset? havent seen anything like that.

R74NN
13-05-2015, 04:56
@yusupov: The layout used in the screenshot was created just for the purpose of presentation. No layouts are shipped with the Profiler, you have to create your own according to your needs.

@LeandroHunter:


Install Profiler on both machines, the one you use for gaming (server) and the other you will use as a monitor (client).
On the server machine run TomShane.Profiler.Server.exe and click Start button.
On the client computer run Profiler the usual way, go to TOOLS->Options and tick "Use remote server".
In the respective field fill the name or IP address of the computer used as a server.
Click "Connect" button to connect to the running server. Profiler will connect as soon as you run the game.
Remember to enable Shared Memory in the game and check Firewall rules on both machines.

It does indeed work in multi player. You need to do one lap (the out lap) for the data to start recording I believe.

It supports all tracks. It will draw the track based on each lap you do, expect the out lap.

What Pete said, just the rule is it has to be a valid lap (not grey or red).

Oh i know! Not saying it's his fault ;)

With those values it would be great to set up right height, camber, spring stiffness, ...

We'll have to wait for the API update. Any word on that?

I wish there was a App like this for PS4 and XB one.

Ive seen things like this done on war thunder called "war thunder tactical map", the map you're flying in comunicated through your network to the app onto the phone/tablet (and it works with PS4) so you can see everyones location on the phone/tablet screen.

Something like that should be able to be done using either a network the device is connected to (router) or the PS4/XB one built in network to comunicate to a App to capture the data to display on the phone/tablets screen. It would make for a great conpanion app.

But this would require the game itself being able to output the performance data over a network or the consoles own wifi hardware.

yusupov
14-05-2015, 21:36
be sure to make noise about it & maybe SMS will buy the app or some deal can be reached so ps4/xb1 users can use it or something much like it as well.

Great app!!
I used it today with the Renault Clio on Brands and was impressed with the options and how well it worked.

I do have a few suggestions:
- When saving the pcp file, autoname it with variables ie. %TRACK%-%CAR%-%SESSION%-%DATE%.pcp ,same goes for exporting a single lap, put the laptime in the name.
When I am racing I don't want to type to much and with this all files are unique and can be saved quickly.
- Show the track, currently it shows the line you have driven, I would like to see my line relative to the track. Maybe this is not possible but would be great.

It sounds to me as though you haven't got Shared Memory.

Try this:
How to enable Shared Memory in pCARS:
Run game and navigate to [Options & Help].
Click [Visuals] menu item.
On the [Hardware] tab set [Use Shared Memory] to [Yes].

Hope this helps

For some reason I cannot get the telemetry to show up on my laptop. I can get pCars to connect to the profiler on my desktop computer. Here are the steps I am doing: Start profiler and server on desktop. Start and Connect on laptop with the remote ip of my desktop (tried my computers internal ip and the ip supplied by the server). start pCars from steam. i can see telemetry on my desktop at this point, but my laptop will not connect to the server. I dont have any issues with these computers connecting in any way so it should not be a firewall issue :/ Maybe I'm doing something wrong though.

I suppose both computers are connected directly to the same local network, right? However, It think the IP address that server displays is internet IP assigned to you by your provider. Can you tell what is the local IP of your computers and use it in the options instead?

If you use command (in Command Prompt) "ping Lang-PC" what is the response?

Still no resolve :/ I've tried it all I'll chock it up to somehow my network being funky. Its just odd that I can network between these computers. Maybe I am not doing the correct steps though. Do I need to have the profiler on my desktop running before I start the server? The server says waiting until I start pcars and then moves to started after I turn on pcars, but the laptop cannot connect to the pcars server :/ I don't need a port forwarded or anything because its on the same lan, right? I thought it could be a difference between 1.4 and 1.5 so I uninstalled and reinstalled 1.5 on both computers. I've also restarted both desktop router and laptop to possibly debug a fault with hosting but nothing :(

R74NN
16-05-2015, 20:34
Yea, when you are on the same LAN, there is no need to forward any ports.

So have you tried to put local IP in (instead of an external)? Host name sometimes doesn't have to work, if DNS is screwed. I know I have mentioned it before and you tried it already, but just a reminder - if I'm diagnosing this sort of problems I usually turn anti-virus and firewall off.

Are you behind a router or how are these two machines connected to Internet?

Apparently it was firewall/ ICMP connection. I forwarded ICMP on the firewall and what do you know, was able to ping the local computer IP and it is now working! if only I knew how to read it xD

- When saving the pcp file, autoname it with variables ie. %TRACK%-%CAR%-%SESSION%-%DATE%.pcp ,same goes for exporting a single lap, put the laptime in the name.
When I am racing I don't want to type to much and with this all files are unique and can be saved quickly.
- Show the track, currently it shows the line you have driven, I would like to see my line relative to the track. Maybe this is not possible but would be great.

I would also love to see that new sessions are created (as option) by the user in the Profiler.
Current a restart session creates a new session having all my laptimes in the wrong session.
I prefer one session even after restart session.
Yes I can move them to the new session but this needs user interaction.

Also when the server app is started and the client is trying to connect without pcars is started it looks like the client cant connect to the server.
If pCars is started everything works fine. Not really an issue if you know this but a "connected to server message would be nice".

Besides this the updates are really nice.
Playing pCars and having a laptop next to me with the Profiler via LAN is really cool.:cool:

I love this app, really well done!!
Just a question, someone knows when the API is completed by SMS?
It is sad to see that ride height, damping speed and detailed tire temperatures are missing.
This is not a race simulation as I know it.
Thanks for the great app Thomas!

Hey!

Really looks like a tool I'd like to use. My problem is, when I run it on the game-pc (doesn't matter if it's the server or client part), the game will not start anymore. It locks up in the SMS start screen. When running the server on the game-pc and then connect to it from another machine, it looks like the client is recognizing the game beeing ready to serve data (the waiting for server message disappears that moment), but as said the game does not finish loading.
There is no change when toggling the shared memory setting in the game. .net is up to date (V4.52). When I do not start this soft, the game starts normally.

Is anyone else experiencing this and found a way arround it or has any idea on it?


ps.: For the ones having trouble connecting to the server part. I've got several network interfaces installed (ethernet, wifi, virtual ones, etc.). When I started the server, it hooked up on a virtual one from vmware. I had to disable it to let the server listen on the one which connects the client and server. Maybe you can implement a switch to choose which nic it should listen on if there's more than one.

Hi, Thank you for this app/software, looks like it has some great features..
Installed and connecting etc fine ( local onto second monitor. i am having a little issue and by the way it is not just an issue with this app,but i am hoping someone can help me. the problem is when i click on anything in my secondary screen the game screen on my main screen goes black/inactive. i understand what is happening, if i make a window or an icon active/selected on my second screen it makes whatever is active on my main screen non active. whilst i read that to use some functions it will pause the session. is there a way to just have the game pause instead of just becoming inactive and black screen, having to pretty much alt tab back to the main screen and selecting pccars and make it active, it pretty much looks like it minimizes the game. the only way i can get around this and seems to pause the game fine and able to navigate through the profiler is by running the game in Windowed mode in game settings, visuals, performance. this works ok that way, but its in a window mode. which for some reason in pccars cannot be maximised by alt-enter etc.. any suggestions would be awesome. Win7, GTX760, 27" main screen running 1920x1080 via HDMI and 24" second screen 1920x1200 via DVI.

thank you.
Phil

( EDIT. Dont mind my post too much. funny thing i was running AA in DS2X, and alt tab wasnt working very well to bring it back up, i could get the game back up but then the profiler was gone and vice versa. i changed to AA high, and alt tab worked fine every time. ( ALT + Tab 3 times) brought game and profiler flawlessly. curious to see if it was DS2X, switch back to DS2X and also worked every time.. I have no explantion :).( maybe it something resolution related, but seems ok for the moment.
thanks

Hey R74NN,

exact, the game did not load with the app started. But things changed for me today. Just bought a new gfx-card for better rainsupport and installed it.
Nothing really changed on my system as I was upgrading from nvidia2nvidia, there was no need to change the driver, just a hardwareswap. So I'm not sure if that changed the situation.

But - and that's great - the game starts with the profiler working! So no need to worry about that anymore.

Great tool, I love it. Cheers from DE, falkeGT

Excellent application thanks. It would be great if there was some more high level type analysis going on for multiple sessions. For example I would like to see all my (valid) lap times around a track for each car across all recorded sessions, without having to laboriously load in every individual saved session.

You can combine several sessions in one file with right click and "move to session xyz" or you can import laps from a completely other file with "import" at the top :)

Nice program. I have a couple requests. First, it would be nice if I could change to measurements from metric to imperial. Second, another app I used on my android has time to car in front and back as a setting. I assume this means the telemetry for this is out put. I'd like to have that info be able to be displayed seprately so I can make it large.

You can change display units in TOOLS -> Channel Editor. Set units as desired and then save it as a preset (combo box at the top right of main Channel Editor window).

Hello,

this is follow up thread from the original WMD forum. Here you can report bugs, ask questions or post suggestions.

Below is a download link and brief description how to use it with the game. There is no detailed manual at the moment, but since here are many Profiler experts from WMD, I believe we can do without it for now.

/////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////

The latest version is available for download here (http://www.tomshane.cz/profiler/).

/////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////

Information:

Requires .NET Framework 4.5 to run.
Allows to create new file, save it and open later.
Allows to connect live pCARS session and record data.
Allows to analyze and compare laps.
Allows to configure custom gauges and graphs.

How to use (with pCARS running and Shared Memory enabled):

Run application and go to File -> New (Ctrl-N).
Connect pCARS with Tools -> Connect (Ctrl-C or global Ctrl-Shift-C).
Switch to game and start a session, once lap timer starts, recording starts as well.
Run few laps and watch live data in the Profiler (live data are displayed in 30sec/1000m window).
When you switch to Profiler, session is automatically paused and you can work with charts (zooming, scrolling with mouse/mouse wheel).
If the session is not paused, some controls (lap panel and chart) are locked from interaction.
You can set overlay laps for comparison.

How to enable Shared Memory in pCARS:

Run game and navigate to [Options & Help].
Click [Visuals] menu item.
On the [Hardware] tab set [Use Shared Memory] to [Yes].

Loving the profiler, really make a great tool when im using the rift.

Just a suggestion, and may not be possible, but any chance of building some speech algorithms so it could read out key data at certain times, like sector and lap times, tire temps, etc.

I tried to import my best laps (or any other laps). I had the screen to select the lap I want to import and when I click on 'import', nothing happened. I can't open another file and I can't close the application normally. I must end the task.

If you take a Numeric Gauge you can set it up with a crit max value where it changes to a red background if exceeded.

Like I did with the tire temps here:

At some point I tried to use the wheel rotation channel for this.

However it wasn't very practical. Due to a slight delay between the actual game and the profiler showing the values it was always too late to react to it.

Hi. Awsome software.

A sugestion. Don't know how hard to fit in.

Have a componet to see max speed. How would that work?? You would have a numeric gauge that would save the max speed for a few seconds, so when you analyze the telemetry you don't need to drag the cursor over and over again just to try and put it at the end of the speed line in the chart.

Hope that made sense :)

I'm not sure if I get what you want to achieve (sorry), but can't be Peaks panel of any use for you? You can even switch it to "Zoomed" mode, which displays Min/Max/Avg values for the selected area in the graph.

Yes. I can get the info I want from the Peaks panel. Never noticed it before :hopelessness:

What I was trying to say is add an option to have a Numeric Gauge that would read a channel (in this case speed) and allways show the max for x seconds. So you could configure it to show you like the max speed for the last 10 seconds.
While you entered a straight it would start to climb as you go, but when you braked it would stay at max for the x seconds. That could be used to check top speeds and maybe other channels.

That could be a nice adition if not much work. But Peaks panel works too. Though it only works for each lap??
Can you select a part of a graph to limit where the Peaks panel gets the info from??

Thanks for the help ;)

You can enable "Zoomed Mode" with the icon at the top of the Peaks panel. With this enabled values will be calculated only from selected area in the graph.

This profiler looks great - more than I can probably get my head around!
However, what does Driving Line drop down give you, information wise, in the Track Map window? It just shows dotted lines for me.

Cheers.

Yes, if you have chosen a lap to compare the active lap with you can see where you took a different line in these laps. (you have to zoom in quite a bit to see it)

Example. In the red lap I took a much tighter line as in the white lap. Now I can check in the telemetry if this gave me any advantages or not:

Super Tool.. But I have one question.. We have Project Cars running on a Stationary computer, and want this program to run on a laptop. We have connected fine, but there is a lot of lacking on the data on the laptop + we can not make any changes or push any buttons while driving? Are we doing anything wrong? We like the idea of a le Mans, with drivers and Race engineers. :D

Will it be possible in a further build of the app to see other pilots on the "track" panel? Because I drive and a friend of mine is looking the app to telle me how to get the best from my car. I use Hud Dash on my phone to have main driving informations and disable hud in game... So I have no Mirror, and no idea of where are other pilots.

This feature could be awesome to manage and prepare overtaking in the endurance envents I play.

BTW : The application is excellent. that's the only point of improvement I can find.

Perhaps adding only P+1 P-1 and P1 could be the best idea !

And to answer to the previous post, Live tweaking of the car by a "ingeneer" would be AMAZING!... but i think you cant. because it would be and open door to hackers (more grip in turns and no more in straight lines to get the absolute best of the car... a sort of autotune for noobs)

Also wanna point out that this happend before aswell - and that you will see that i have a Windows Time Sync issue but this wasnt a week ago, wheter the telemetry fail already happend!

im not 100% sure but i think this started with the introduction of 1.4 (or maybe 1.3 - im not sure anymore)

Saved 2 session where this happend (1st without 2nd with debug)

Restarting the program seems to fix it - what about a Hotkey (which i could change) for reinitialising the Telemetry?
Because pressing a button midrace is no problem, restarting the Profiler is :D

Hello,
I cannot seem to get the remote connect to work.
- both systems are running windows 8.1
- I started the profile server on the machine running pars and verified it had a status of started
- I hit 'connect' on the external machine running the pars profiler
- I just get a waiting on connection message on the external system in the profiler

-the machine running pcars is running off a lan directly to the router
- the external machine is wireless to the same router
-I disabled the firewall and avg
-I am using my local IP to connect in the profiler set up.

Am I missing something? I have successfully used other apps such as dashmeter pro and can connect to that without issue.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Hi peevee,

the Profiler is tightly bound with pCARS API, so at the moment there is no easy way how to make it work with other games. Regarding the old data files, unfortunately, the Alpha versions were WMD development builds and just before the Profiler was officially released to the public, the file format was updated and significantly changed, so it is not compatible with the current version.

Thanks for understanding.

I've been whining in various threads about how there isn't an in game fuel calculator, and I ran across this tool. Through various means I've actually been able to turn your application into a very large (and very informative) HUD element, as seen here:

http://i.imgur.com/w64SiAxl.jpg (http://imgur.com/w64SiAx)

Edit: I started tweaking the layout a bit this morning to see if I couldn't get a better layout... here's what I have now, and it is pretty smokin. Protip: setting the Gauge Properties to Color text for Channel color is superior to the blindingly colored "Color Background" mode. Especially because when you hit a crit min or max, the background colors anyway... so it is quite noticeable as a HUD element!

http://i.imgur.com/ATBxvdL.png

So I thought I'd ask a few questions and pose some suggestions!


Would it be possible to have a "HUD mode" added, which would remove the entire titlebar and interface buttons and set the app to "stay on top"*?
I would find it useful to have the app ship with a saved default layout, as after all of my customization, I'm going to have to either reinstall or rebuild a more "full telemetry" layout from scratch. Edit: This was actually really easy to do. No real need to ship with a default. Once you learn how to manipulate panels, it becomes super easy to throw together layouts really quickly. Bravo, sir.
I noticed last night that after adding Aero and Engine Damage to the list of things that the Damage panel displays (after adding a ton more rows and columns, as shown in the screenshot) that those two damages were not getting updated in game. I will experiment with this later today, but was wondering if those function correctly? Edit: I must have been on a server with damage turned off. Testing this morning confirms that your app shows these quite well.
While customizing my Damage HUD, I removed and re-added a bunch of elements (see previous point) and was hoping that things like Tire Temp and Brake Temp would have default crit mins and maxes populated when they are added. I'm JUST started out looking at telemetry data, and I don't know what good numbers for all these things are.


Keep up the awesome work. While unfortunate that quite a bit of the API data is not represented directly in game, and the fact that the API doesn't show some things that ARE shown in game (I'm looking at you inner/outer tire temps), it is super to know that super nerds like you work hard to make super nerds like me happy. Cheers!

Edit: Clarification and a new screenshot of my updated layout for HUD use.

Hey Tom ! I'd like to ask a complex question... Do you think it is possible to create an API that can gather gaps between players/cars in online sessions ? This kind of information would greatly improve racing leagues and commentary work on them.

If each car (player) would be running a transmitting application, that would read his position/timing and send it to a (web) server, then yes. But this is out of Profiler's scope.

As R74NN says it is outside the scope of his application however the dedicated server API outputs this information.

There is a great post here (http://forum.projectcarsgame.com/showthread.php?26520-Dedicated-Server-API&p=1040033&viewfull=1#post1040033) with a forum member linking the game GPS data to real world maps. The post shows the results, which look fantastic!

Hello!

I love the tool, as I really love to work on the perfect setup and get the car to be the greatest it can, but without a proper tele app it wasn't possible.

But I do have a serious problem, that has halt my victory dance - my comp crashes with a dpc Watchdog Violation Error. An error that I have never seen on my computer before, so Im pretty sure its got something to do with the profiler. So before I start going through all the different ways to troubleshoot this I was hoping maybe osmeone has had it before and theres a working solution to it. Is there?

Thank you in advance and it is truly a great telemetry app!

The profiler has no access to your ingame setup, so that's not possible ;)

You could make a setup on http://projectcarssetups.eu/ though and from there Right Click > Print (or however your browser is able to print websites). Looks quite good.

Hi,
I re-set my computer after some problems with upgrading to Win 10 Pro, it was an almost clean install now (Win 8.1 clean and immediately Win 10 upgrade), so there should nothing be left on the system. But since then my Profiler stops working every time I finish the first complete lap after the outlap and tells me it was not able to access /.../Profile. I replaced the new, "empty" folders with my back-upped files (which gave me my layout back), but the error kept occuring. Does anyone have some good advice?
Thank you

You can combine several sessions in one file with right click and "move to session xyz" or you can import laps from a completely other file with "import" at the top :)

I can import but then it splits via date, I just want all my laps in one long list?

Hi Tricky,

unfortunately the API hasn't been touched since I can remember, it suffers still from the same major bugs and we have no clue if anything will be done on this. I didn't find any workarounds for the issues, so I stopped all development on the Profiler. Simply I don't feel like wasting my time anymore. I'm sorry.

Is anyone else having problems when you pit? Every time I go into the pit (at spa) the lap time is all messed up and the session is split in two. Eg. I go in at lap 7 it records up to when I go into the pits say 1:30 then when I leave the pits a new session is started (on lap 7 also) this time seems to be the right time I think, lap 7 + the pit stop. Not that bug a deal but just wondering if there is a way around it! Great program anyway! Thanks!

31-08-2015, 04:21
Hi,

Variance graph indeed means lap to lap time difference in a point of a track, BUT it is fairly inaccurate if your driving path varies, since we don't have exact lap distance (position), so I have to calculate it from "GPS" coordinates and distance traveled.

Grip, if I remember correctly, means "available grip used". It could be easily checked, if you are stationary, the value should read zero. If it's not, the meaning will be reversed.

Edit: I have just checked it with the game. When stationary it reads 100%, so the meaning should be "available grip left". Sorry for the confusion.

And lastly one more question, is there a way to enable side scrolling on graphs, or enable range selection when looking at the graphs? This would allow for precise zooming, currently its rather difficult.

I'm pretty sure there are tools which convert XML data to a useful Excel sheet.

Oh, I have misread your post, Koongfoo, sorry. I thought you are asking for Lap Panel exports.

Tony is right about the profile data, though.

That's the hint I was looking for. Many thanks! It works.

I am having an issue with my custom layout, apologies if this has been mentioned before but I can save a layout, close the program and re-open and one of my divider lines will have moved, its repeatable and easily fixed but I just wondered if there was a way to fix it.

If you need screenshots I can post them up this evening to better demonstrate what I mean.

Any ideas?

Just a fantastic job! brilliant program! This should be fixed in the main page of the forum!

Hey Tom,

Great app, issue is could you release a freezing update. Seems to freeze during a cool down lap then start working again. Also shows incorrect readings on some laps rather than others. Very odd.

Thanks

Hi,

I'm on Windows 10, and I can't get the app installed. After downloading TomShane.Profiler.Setup.exe and running it, nothing happens for a while and then I get the an error dialog saying



ShellExecuteEx failed; code 1053
The service did not respond to the start or control request in a timely fashion.

Hi, try to run the setup with full administrator privileges. Right click the file and select Run as Administrator from the context menu.

Thanks for the quick reply; but alas, it's the same issue, with the wording somewhat different.

Hi,

Is there a way of changing the x axis on general graphs from time to distance?

Thanks!

This is a great tool. Is there any way to create graphs based on calculated math channels like Inverse Corner Radius =Lateral Acceleration/speed?

Forgive me if this is a stupid question, but why would someone want to compare things based on time instead of distance?

Solved - it was a general Win10 problem; something with UAC not working as it should. I had the same problem while trying to install other problems; but a few reboots later it's not an issue anymore.

It's a great piece of software, thanks for sharing this with all of us!

It can be useful if you want to compare two long runs to each other. For single laps it doesn't make much sense.
Also AFAIK pCars doesn't really provide a distance parameter so the distance option is calculated and might be prone to inaccuracies.

In case the API will be updated, it will be added to the Profiler as a new channel.

Is there now a new Channel?
API is updated fr tire pressure but did not see a update on the pCARS Profiler.

I haven't seen any updates regarding the game's API. Could you link me the source of this information?

Profiler
12-10-2015, 13:44
I thought i have read some Patch Release Notes that's the API was updated to that. Don't know what Patch it was.
The In-Game Telemetry-Hud Thing still has the Tire pressure, also thought that it's now possible to add it now also to the pCars Profiler...
I might have been wrong



Edit:
Patch 3.0 Relaese Note, first Section:

* Enhanced HUD and Telemetry tyre info system – players can now see in real time which tyre compounds they are currently using, what each tyre’s pressure is, and how much each tyre is worn.

Thougt that would iinnclude the possiblity to add it also to the pCars Profiler

Unfortunately not, the API was not updated for ages.

Hey Tom !

I was wondering if you could make possible for the app to remember on which screen it was before closing. Thus avoiding me to move it on my second screen and rescale the layout every time I launch it :)

What a fantastic program, I can't believe I never really utilized this much until recently.

I only have one suggestion (don't worry, I won't ask for anything not in the API lol).

When you click and drag, only the window you are currently in outputs the current value in real-time, the other windows do not update their current values until you let go of the mouse button. It would be amazing if all windows would simultaneously output their current values in real-time.

This is an incredibly useful program, thank you for all of your work, it is really impressive. Hopefully the devs will expand the API even further, as adding channels to this program will be easy since the foundation is so solid.

Hi guys,

In two weeks, hosting subscription for my web site will expire and I'm not going to renew it, so the site will not be accessible anymore. I'm not going to bother you with the long list of why-s, just for various reasons I basically didn't play the game since the release. Also, I'm not going to update the Profiler anymore. After almost two years of development the program is still nearly useless, because the channels you need for semi-basic analysis and car setup are still missing and the lack of communication from the devs in this area is not exactly motivating. Honestly, I can't understand it.

When my site will be shut down, I will redirect the download link back to my dropbox, so you can still download the app if you need.

I'm sorry to discontinue the development like this, but pCARS completely drifted away from my sphere of interest.

Good luck everyone.

That's very dissapointing to hear, but i understand where you are coming from. i did mention in the api thread about hoping it wouldnt coming to this, and as i said these telemetry apps that you and others have worked hard on were a selling point to me for pcars.

thank you very much for your App and your kind support. I hope all goes well for you .

take care
Phil

That's a shame, I love geeking out with this app, even with the API issues it still a great tool for improving lap times

I fully understand your decision. I never really used your and other's tools to optimise my laptimes, I only tested them and I'm really disappointet that some really important informations from the API still are missing (that's the reason I didn't use all those tools). Hopefully you come back with updates as soon as there are API updates (hope dies last).

Isn't the data sent to these programs/apps like the profiler being updated soon with the work @Tim Mann of SMS has been doing with getting data streaming to apps for console?

Tim's latest post is here....

http://forum.projectcarsgame.com/showthread.php?40113-IN-PROGRESS-Companion-app-UDP-streaming&p=1155547&viewfull=1#post1155547

I came to this thread hoping console users may soon be able to use the profiler on PC capturing the data streamed by the game. Sony and Microsoft have allowed SMS to broadcast the API. Tim has been making changes to the API from the PS4 development environment and these changes will be carried over to PC and XB1. Maybe those changes will inspire the profiler creator (or someone else) to continue his excellent work.
