Hi Magic,

Just hoping we might have the choice to turn off the start/finish line count up and have larger fonts for the lap times. I know it must be tricky to make things work one way in portrait and a different way in landscape. Hope you can do it. Thanks!

If requests are being taken, the only 4 I would like to see would be:

1) Pace cars that change lanes

2) Variable speed pace cars, based on mapping of the throttle position around the track and averaged together, like SSDC does.

3) Ability to turn off and import sound files for various things (start of race, pit noises, lap being recorded, etc.)

4) Option for fuel burn based on throttle usage, not laps counted...have a heavier finger, burn fuel faster.

If those above items could be accomplished, I would think, for me, this would be the perfect RMS: Powerful, flexible, and a very simple and easy to use interface.

Option 4, is already as you would like.
Option 2, is the next addon.
Option 3, can be done.
Option 1, I can't know where the car is on the track. There are a lot of problem and side effects. Firstly, the speed of the two lanes is different. Secondly, I can only estimate where can be the LC, and I cannot know if the car take it or not until the car cross the FL. Issues increased when more than one CL are available.

But, I may activate randomly the LC for pace car.. but does it make sense?

Now that I think about... I cannot call CL with the actual BT commands. I have no way to activate a CL for a specific car.

No worries, just thought I would throw my "wish list" out there.

Magic, I just wanted to say that your app caused me to order the Arc Pro GT set yesterday. I have not even run a race with it yet...but just from watching videos and playing with it as much as I can without a power base, I am really impressed. And very thankful!

Donation coming inbound shortly...thank you for putting your talents and skills to this solution for us. Hat's off to a job well done!

Tournament Mode

Hi Magic,

I know you are thinking about this, wanted to give you some information.

There are two types of tournaments that I know of: proxy races and championships.

In a proxy race, guys from all over the world send their cars to a track. At the track, local drivers drive them in races to see who has built the fastest car. In a proxy race, every driver gets a chance to drive each car.

In a championship, each driver drives only his own car, but you might start with many drivers. It is like the World Cup. Drivers race against each other in heats. The fastest drivers move on to the next heat, the slowest drivers are eliminated.

This would probably be a nice feature to have. It would be especially useful for club racing with ARC PRO. I hope Woodcote would post about this, he runs races for a club in Worthing, UK and would know more than I do.

Hello Magic, just wondering if your apk has rumble on the controller working my 5 year old son loves it. It doesn't seem to work like the scaley apk. Maybe you can put a slider on it so for those who want to use it and for those who don't. Maybe I'm doing something wrong but my controllers only rumble with the scaley apk thanks

Doing Documentation Internally

Hi Magic,

In dialog boxes where there are options, like "Informations Color Type" where the options are "Car ID" and "Fixed" could we add a few words to describe what the options are. For example, "Car ID - display lap & time with same color as car" or "Fixed - display lap & time for all cars with fixed color". For another example, we need to put the time until empty tank or used up tires in the dialog box along with the word options , so "Very low -> 120 seconds of full throttle".

In some cases it might work to add some explanation on the page, like when there are sliders. For example, when you add a car you see a slider for Fuel Burn and Tyre Wear, but you remember you set this in General Configuration and you get confused. For fuel burn we could say, "Set below 100% to extend the time until tank empty" or whatever words sounded good to you.

I know from practice people will learn, but everything that makes using the app easier is probably worth doing. If it would help, I can make a list of places to do this and what to say.

Protecting the User in Analog

If a user creates a new race, when he clicks on "Select Cars and Drivers" he is presented with the normal 6 car stack of cars and drivers. When a user clicks on an existing race that is populated with more than 2 cars and drivers and clicks on "Select Cars and Drivers" he sees all the entered cars and drivers.

If the system is in analog, there should be a check so the user never sees a Select Cars and Drivers screen with more than the red and green display lines.

At first it was as you asked. But then I prevent you to setup a race while offline.

In order to know if your PRO is set as analog I have to check controller status. I never done this check. Too lazy ^_^

Anyway, Ill add it

Is it possible, when doing a timed race, to have the voice tell us 'One Minute Left" and then "30 Seconds Left" for the PC version. Or is this already in there and I just missed it. :)

Hey Magic! Had a chance to run the app for about 4 hours of racing yesterday. Three things came up:

  1. Is it possible to have an option to display a static Last Lap instead of the current lap time (that counts up as you are completing the lap)? We found ourselves wanting to know what our last lap time was so that we could see how fast off of our best time it was.
  2. Is there a way to reset after a short that does not require reconnecting the app?
  3. Is it possible to have an option to change the background color of the bar for each driver? If not, how about a way to enlarge the font a bit? Some of the colors are just not visible from afar on the black background.

Other than those things, it worked wonderfully!
