Thread: Z1 Analyzer

  1. #21
    Version 1.3.0 of the Z1 Analyzer is now available! This new version adds 20 new traces (such as Tire Carcass Temps, Accelerations, Oil/Water Pressure and Temperature, and many more)! Many new options have been added making it easier to load and scan laps.

    In addition Live telemetry has been updated to include a time line on the trace, displaying in 10 second increments. The Start/Finish line is also marked on the live telemetry traces. And you can now have the actual track map displayed on the live telemetry.

    You can download the demo here: http://z1simwheel.com/dashboard/demo...ce=ProjectCars

    Or if you already have the application please go here to get the latest version: http://z1simwheel.com/dashboard/MyDashboard.cfm

    Here are some of the new traces:

    Carcass Tire Temps:


    Brake Pressure:


    Oil Pressure:


    Water Temperature:


    CPU Usage:


    Frames Per Second:


    Manifold Pressure:


    Fuel Per Hour:


    Steering Torque:


    Here is the full list of updates:
    * The installer is now digitally signed to make the installation process faster and easier.

    * The number of ibt files that can be scanned at once has been increased from 1,000 to 5,000. Any files over the 5,000 limit will be ignored.

    * The traces colors have been moved to their own tab in the settings dialog. This is to allow space for more options.

    * There is now an option to specify whether or not the Analyzer rescans for laps every time you start it. This is located in the General tab of the settings dialog.

    * There is now an option in the select lap dialog which allows you to rescan the computer for new laps.

    * Updates the display in the Shock, Ride Height and front Splitter traces to show only 1 decimal place when using metric units, and 2 decimal places when suing imperial units. The previous value of 4 decimal places was unnecessary and cluttered the display.

    * You can now specify how close to the start finish line the car has to be at the beginning and end of a lap in order for that lap to be displayed by the Analyzer as a choice for opening. The default for the start is that the car is somewhere in the first 5 percent of the lap. The default for the end is the car must have finished at least 95 percent of the lap. If your laps are not showing up you can try adjusting these values (especially the ending value) to require that less of the lap has been driven. These options are available in the General tab of the settings dialog.

    * Added the following traces: CPU Usage, FPS Trace, Tire Carcass Outer Temps, Tire Carcass Middle Temps, Tire Carcass Outer Temps, Longitudinal Acceleration, Lateral Acceleration, Vertical Acceleration, Oil Temperature, Water Temperature, Raw Throttle, Raw Brake, Tire Wear, Oil Pressure, Manifold Pressure, Tire Pressure, Brake Pressure, Fuel Per Hour, Steering Torque Percentage, Steering Torque.

    * There is now an option under the Live Telemetry Tab called 'Pin data line to end' which is on by default. This option keeps the data line pinned to the end of the trace, showing you the current values for a trace value. If you want to be able to click around the trace after you have started live telemetry then this option should be turned off.

    * There is now an option under the Live Telemetry Tab called 'Start data line at end' which is on by default. This option starts the data line at the end of the trace, showing you the current values for a trace value.

    * There is now an option under the Live Telemetry Tab called 'Show trace values' which is on by default. Unticking this checkbox will prevent the current values of the ttraces from being displayed. This may be useful if you are trying to view the graph of a live trace without the actual value being displayed over it.

    * You can now save a track map to disk. This option is available when viewing a lap loaded from a telemetry file. Click on the track map's settings icon and there is a new save icon displayed. Saving a track map allows you to have it displayed when running live telemetry instead of the default square map.

    * The live telemetry now shows a time line on the traces. Every 10 seconds is marked as well as the Start/Finish line.

    We've released version 4.6.1 of the Dashboard and 1.3.1 of the Analyzer. These updates fix some bugs that were discovered in version 4.6.0 of the Dashboard and 1.3.0 of the Analyzer.

    The fixes are:
    In the Z1 Dashboard:
    * Fixed a bug that could cause the display in the LCD screen to appear slanted or distorted.

    * Fixed a bug for iRacing where a hosted or off-line session could report the type of session (practice, race, qualifying, etc) incorrectly. This could result in an incorrect number of laps being displayed as completed.

    In the Z1 Analyzer:
    * Fixed a bug where the ride height analysis screen did not correctly identify the point where the user clicked on the track map.

    * Fixed a bug where the values in the traces were displayed too low on the trace. This resulted in traces with four values (such as tires, etc) having the rear wheel values off screen.

    * Fixed a bug where if there was no wheel speed data the brake lock up analysis screen would say your brake were continuously locked.

    * Fixed a bug in the Lap Overview section where sectors times and turn times where not displayed properly.

    * Updated the decimal places used in the Ride Height analysis screen to be one decimal place for metric units and two for imperial units. This brings it up-to-date with how the units are displayed in the Ride Height trace.

    * Fixed a bug where zod files recorded with version 4.6.x of the Dashboard might not be able to be opened. (You should delete and ZOD files created with version 4.6.0 of the Dashboard or 1.4.0 of the Server.)

    Version 1.4.0 of the Z1 Analyzer is now available. The Z1 Analyzer is a telemetry analysis program whose primary focus is helping to improve you, the driver. This is done through various analysis screens describing the track and your progress around it. Of course it also has all the various trace graphs you would expect from an analysis application, available for saved laps and for live real-time telemetry.

    If you already own the software you can get the update here: http://z1simwheel.com/dashboard/MyDashboard.cfm

    If not, please download the demo today: http://z1simwheel.com/dashboard/demo...ce=ProjectCars


    Here is the full list of release notes:
    v 1.4.0
    * There is a new analysis screen called 'Track Walk'. This allows you to click on each turn on the track and get details information about that turn, including elevation and camber changes that occur as you go through the turn. The idea is that you can look at each turn in detail and see how the track will help or hinder you as you drive through the turn. This will help you determine how to take the turn, how hard you can brake, how much you can turn and accelerate in the turn. (Currently this is only available for iRacing tracks.)

    * There is now an option in the general tab of the settings dialog that lets you specify if the track edges should be used to determine the turns on a track. This is on by default. In most situations this option is better at determining corners than the previous method. But if you still want to use the previous method, just untick this checkbox.

    * The Driving Line and Turn Analysis screens can now be displayed in 3D.

    * The analyzer will now display driver markers found in the telemetry files on the Driving Line and Turn Analysis overlay screens and the traces.

    * You can specify if the sectors and/or markers should be displayed in the traces or overlays.

    * Improved how the lap times are determined from iRacing ibt files to prevent rounding that happened in previous releases.

    * There is a new trace for wheel RPS. This allows for analysis of locks up for sims that do not have wheel speed data, but do have wheel RPS data.

    * There is now an option to specify the maximum age of the lap in days for it to be scanned and presented as an option for you to load. By default this is 30 days. You can change this option in the general tab of the settings dialog.

    * The Play button now gets highlighted when you replay a lap.

    * When playing a lap, if that lap is from iRacing and you are still in the session where that lap was recorded, then the Analyzer will sync the iRacing replay and play it back along with the Analyzer's replay.

    * The rendering of the throttle/brake overlay on the Speed Comparison screen has been improved.

    * When viewing two laps the Speed Comparison overlay will show the throttle and brake overlays side-by-side on the track map. This allows for easier viewing of how the throttle and braking application of the two laps compare. At the start/finish line and each sector marker you'll see an 'L' and a 'B'. This tells you which trace is for the main lap 'L', and which is for the base lap 'B'.

    * The side-by-side option above can be toggled on or off in the General tab of the settings dialog.

    * You can now choose if you want the throttle brake overlays on the track map and the speed comparison page to use the filtered inputs (the default) or the raw inputs. This is set in the general tab of the settings dialog. Raw inputs don't show things like electronic assisted blips or ABS, etc.

    * The overlays now have a button that allows you to switch the currently loaded lap and the base lap. The button looks like two arrows. This makes it easy to change a selected lap to the base lap and therefore load other laps against that one instead of the previously loaded base lap.

    This looks fantastic! Will try the demo soon.

    One question (sorry if you answer it above, I've not read it all) - is there a way to share laps between drivers? And even better, is there a central repository of shared lap data from other drivers (those who are willing to share their data)? I remember using some kind of analyzer with iRacing years ago and it was incredibly useful to learn from a faster driver! Thank you.

    One further query please - Is it possible to overlay signal traces in a single graph? E.g. throttle and brake. I left-foot brake and have a habit of not releasing the throttle early enough when I brake. So an overlay of brake and throttle shows that clearly. Another example - useful to overlay brake and steering as I'm trying to learn to trail brake correctly. The Analyzer looks awesome btw. Thanks again!

    This feature is in progress. It will be in a future version, but did not make it into this one.

    That is an interesting idea. It is not available, but we will look into it.

    That would be great and also really take it to another level IMHO.

    Thanks for looking into that. Signal overlay is incredibly useful as the interaction of the signals is so important (I know Z1 has a cursor but being able to quickly see without having to move a cursor is much better). Having used the demo, maybe an approach could be to add a freeform graph ("compound graph" or whatever) pane where the user can select which traces they want to appear in it. I love the features Z1 has over other analysis packages, it's superb. I just really miss signal overlay as that's in even the free packages I've tried.

    We've got a new video out explaining how you can load laps into the Z1 Analyzer for review.

    Check it out here:
