    Real-time telemetry/race strategy tool released for PC2

    Hello,

    I have been developing a telemetry and race strategy tool for the F1 series since Codemasters started doing the game for PCs. In the years it has grown into a quite large package. The tool has been working with PC2 for quite some time, but I never announced it here, so here we go.

    My tool provides:

    • real-time telemetry graphics
      saves telemetry data (from you + limited data from your5 opponents), which you can then analyze later (i.e. how could the winner be 3 seconds per lap faster than me).
      very accurate delta to all cars racing
      race related data (track position history, laptime history views),
      track map with opponent MP rating visible
      raceinfo with data about the driver in front and behind and graphs of their laptime histories
      "Driver DNA", way to look at many laps to see, where you are consistent, where not


    This is a tool, which I have developed for myself and use myself. The features I add are the ones, that I would like to have during racing.

    Like e.g. in the real-time track map you can see, where you will land after pitstop. Or in race info you can see as graphs, the laptimes of the person ahead + person behind and your fuel use details.

    So this is a tool, which you can use for improving your own driving, but can also use it to make you (or someone else) to work as your race engineer.

    I just released version 9.3, which plenty of fixes for PC2's online racing + fixes to the track data.

    you can get the tool from RaceDepartment at https://www.racedepartment.com/downl...ication.27456/. And if you cannot create an account in RaceDepartment, you can also get the tool from my website at http://www.ikorein.com/telemetry/.

    If you run the tool on the same computer as PC2, the installation is pretty simple.

    1. Unzip the package anywhere you like to install it, e.g. C:\bin\Telemetry.
      Read first the ReadMe.txt.
      Then run the runWin_PC2.bat, which starts the tool.
      Start PC2, enable the UDP Telemetry, restart PC2.
      Start driving
      Get Telemetry. Enjoy and get better.


    You can see the installation video at my YouTube channel at https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCOM...kR55VrQmQDe6A/.


    The tool can be run on Windows, Linux or Mac, e.g. on a spare laptop. Or on second screen (as I do). If you run the Telemetry tool on separate computer from PC2, check the ReadMe.txt on how to get the data to the 2nd computer.

    If you have any questions, let me know.

    Enjoy, I do.

    Tool sounds great, but people need to have an account in racedepartment to be allowed to download the tool and that might be inconvenient. How about providing also a link in some service like dropbox etc?

    I will try to see, if I can attach the file to the original post.

    At the moment the upload just drops, which might be due to my connection at the moment. If I cannot attach the .zip, I will post alternative link.

    Cheers.

    Just a heads-up.

    I posted new version to RaceDepartment.com. It contains little PC2 related fixes and many updated trackmaps for PC2.

    You can find the new version from: https://www.racedepartment.com/downl...for-pc2.34633/

    Cheers.

    Just posted new version to RaceDepartment.

    For PC2 the new version adds way to save Ghost lap data and also visually see speed & time traces of the Ghost lap (+ comparison traces). Also there are new updated trackmaps for some tracks, which had bit low quality track maps.

    For this version I have done lot of endurance racing testing, e.g. with the Indy 500 races and the tool has been reworked to work even better with long races.

    You can find the new version from: https://www.racedepartment.com/downl...for-pc2.34633/

    Cheers

    Just posted new version to RaceDepartment.

    The new version adds Math Channels. You can define math channels from the base data and use those as traces in the Telemetry tab. Also histograms now work with live data.

    A quick note, if you are using PC2 with different language than English.

    It might be that the 10.4 is not working with different language modes (tested with Spanish), so short term work around is to change the game's language to English.

    Cheers.

    Does it works on PC2 on consoles? PS4?

    Yep, should work, but it then uses only the UDP data.

    And you need to run the Telemetry Tool on laptop/desktop on the same network.

    Enable the broardcasting setting in the networking setup (in the Telemetry Tool), if you use the Telemetry Tool with the PS4 PC2 version.

    Cheers.

    10.5 is here.

    You can get it from RaceDepartment: https://www.racedepartment.com/downl...for-pc2.34633/

    Biggest addition is system to sync your laptimes + basic lap data to global database. When there is more data, I will add functionality to the Tool, which will allow you to compare your own times to the laptimes of other users of the Telemetry Tool. The tool will ask consent for sending the data, when you start it for the first time.

    New general additions:
    * Multi-histogram view
    * Multi-XY-plotter view
    * Map: Border color added to leader, car in front and behind for easy detection
    * New trackfile format, which is more compact + also loads faster.
    * Tyre pressures are now saved to lapdata files
    * Many little fixes and tweaks.
    * PgUp and PgDown work as zoom in all views (handy if there is no mouse scroller on the system)

    I expect this to be last big update for the near future. I will be hunting + fixing odd bugs and working on making the backend bit more robust before next larger release.

    For update, backup old installation, then unzip the .zip on top of the old installation. There are many new files in bin, lib and tracks directories.

    For new installs, check the ReadMe.txt and/or the Youtube videos on how to install this.

    If you have any questions, let me know.

    Enjoy, and get faster.

    Cheers.
