    tried again on a clean installed win10 built 1809 machine, Dashboard and server is working well but Analyzer still won't work. There must be something wrong.

    Is the Analyzer issue the same one as you were having before?

    yes, identical issue. I'm thinking about running a win7 virtual machine in win10 to solve this.

    Version 1.15 of the Z1 Analyzer is now available!

    This latest version has lots of improvements as well as new features. The big one is the ability for commercial users to import data from external sources!

    In addition you can now compare laps from different sims or real life data against each other. So if you want to compare iRacing and Assetto Corsa, or your real life track day against a sim, you can do so!

    The new Import External Data dialog.

    The updated finish line graphic makes it easier to identify the S/F line on track maps.

    You can now choose the colors you want to use for the throttle/brake overlays.

    The Ride Height analysis has been updated to allow for side-by-side displays, and improved graphics.

    The Status Bar now displays the car, driver and time info for the loaded laps.

    The latest demo can be downloaded here:

    Here is the full list of release notes:
    * There is a new commercial feature for importing external data from csv files. This data is converted into zod2 files which can then be read by the Z1 Analyzer. This feature is available under File->Import External Data, or CTRL-I for a keyboard shortcut.

    The dialog has 3 sections. The first is where you select the file you want to import. This must be csv file. It should contain data from one or more laps. Click the Browse button to open a file dialog and then select the file through that dialog. After you select the file, the first 50 rows form the file will be displayed in the table in section 3.

    After selecting the file you need to fill out the items in section 2. You can type these in manually or you can right click on the cell in the section 3 table that contains the appropriate information and then select the action from the popup menu. For example most CSV file from other data sources will contains the track, driver and car name in the first few rows. If you right click on the driver name and choose 'Set as Driver Name' from the menu that cell's data will be placed in the Driver Name text field of the second section.

    The track length is the only optional field in section 2. If you do not enter a value here then one of the columns from the CSV file must be the 'Lap Distance' data channel.

    After filling out section 2, you should specify the various data channels and units for all appropriate columns in the section 3 table. You can scroll this table using the blue scroll bars, both vertically and horizontally. You can also use the mouse wheel to scroll vertically. For every column you want to import, you need to select the appropriate data channel from the drop down. Any column marked as 'Ignored' will not be imported. The following data channels are the minimum that must be specified: Current Time, Lap Percent or Lap Distance. Latitude, Longitude, and Altitude are highly recommended. If they are not supplied then a circle will be generated as the track map. All others are optional. Of course the more you specify the more data you will have.

    Each data channel has specific units associated with it. After you choose the data channel from the top drop down, the drop down underneath will update itself with the available units for that data channel. Make sure the selected units match what is contained in your source csv file. For example if you have selected 'Lap Distance' and your CSV file has recorded lap distance in kilometers, then you'll need to set the units drop down for that column to 'Kilometers'.

    The final step is to specify which row contains the first row of data. Left click on whichever row this is. That row will be highlighted and have a line draw above it. Only data from this row downwards will be imported.

    Click the Import button to proceed. If you have not specified a track length, then the file will first be scanned to determine the length of the track. Afterwards it will be scanned again to convert the data into a zod2 file format. The file will be stored in Documents\Z1Analyzer\ExternalData\Telemetry. You only need to do the import one time for each CSV file.

    You will receive a message once the import is finished altering you that it has completed. You will also be asked if you would like to add the laps to the Analyzer's list of available laps. You will need to do this to open them in the Analyzer. Click Yes if you would like to do so at this time. If you click No, you can always perform a Lap Scan at a later time to add the laps to the Analyzer's list of available laps.

    * You can now open laps from the same track from different sims. Both tracks have to have the same name for this to work. This is intended to allow you to open a lap from a sim track and compare it to a lap from an external data file (real world) track. The name of the sim and the track map data will be taken from the main lap (and not the base lap).

    * When exiting the Lap Scan dialog you will be prompted if you would like to open a lap. Answering Yes will immediately open the Lap Selection dialog, removing the step of having to choose it from the menus.

    * The Ride Height Analysis screen has been updated to use the improved rendering engine that is used on the other analysis screens.

    * The Ride Height Analysis screen will now show two laps side by side when you have two laps loaded.

    * The brake point analysis screen has been improved so that the act of dragging your brakes is not counted as a brake zone.

    * We have added comments on the overview analysis screen's braking section to include information about whether or not you are dragging your brakes during the lap.

    * The behavior of selecting drivers from the popup menu in the Select Lap dialog has changed. If you right click on the list of available laps you will see the standard popup menu. Selecting 'Show Drivers' from this popup menu will display the list of all drivers whose laps are displayed in the scroll window. By clicking on the driver name you can choose if you'd like to display that driver's laps or not. This works fine when you have a few drivers. But when you have 10 or more drivers it becomes a two step process to display the laps from just one driver. You have to first select 'No Drivers' from the top of the list, then right click again, go back to the 'Show Driver' sub menu and then choose the driver name. In version 1.15 of the Analyzer if all drivers are displayed, as would be the case when you first choose a sim and track, when you select a driver name the Analyzer will display laps from only that driver, hiding the laps from the other divers. This is a shortcut to get the laps displayed from the desired driver. You can then add other drivers into the mix, or display them all again if you choose.

    * The above behavior changes have also been implemented when you select from the list of cars in the drop down menu.

    * You can now specify the colors used to display the throttle and brake overlays on the track maps. These colors can be set in the Colors tab of the settings dialog. They are located near the bottom (scroll down) under the Track Map section and are called 'Brake Overlay' and 'Throttle Overlay'.

    * Drawing the sector line on the various analysis screen track maps has been improved to have the lines better meet the track edges.

    * The S/F line on the analysis screen track maps has been updated to be a checked flag pattern instead of a red rectangle when the throttle/brake overlay is displayed to avoid confusion with the default braking color.

    * We've added more YouTube video links to the YouTube Help menu. Please check these out to get the most out of the Analyzer and its features.

    * The status bar at the bottom of the screen now also displays the driver name, car and lap time for the currently loaded laps. This makes it possible to see that data when the Lap Data window is not displayed.

    * Instructions on how to make sure you have a track map in live telemetry are now displayed if they are needed. This would be when you are seeing the default square track map.

    * Compatible with the updated RaceRoom API. Note this update is not backwards compatible with the older RaceRoom API.

    * Implemented alpha version of live telemetry to F1 2018. Note as this is a beta feature there may be bugs with connecting to F1 2018 at this time.

    We've just released an update to the Z1 Analyzer. This new version, 1.15.2, fixes a bug that could have caused the Analyzer to crash when importing external data.

    We've also added a new YouTube link to a video explaining how the import external data process works.

    One of the great new commercial features of version 1.15 of the Z1 Analyzer is the ability to import external data. This lets you use all the great features of the Z1 Analyzer to view data generated from other sources, such as real world cars. In addition that data can then be compared against data generated in a sim as well.
