Rivali OV1 Info app 4.1

A slick app with lots of information and features at your disposal.

  1. Ovidiu Barabula
    Hey guys,

    I don't know why I didn't post the app here before, but here you go :)

    Hope you guys will enjoy it, as much as I do! :)

    Description: OV1 Info app is an all-in-one information hub. It has a modern design that hopefully will suit many users and it has the required information, which I think are vital for practice and racing.

    Here's a preview of the app at work:

    Installation:
    Download the file (link at the bottom of the post). Extract the folders inside the Assetto Corsa root folder:
    Code:
    ..\Steam\steamapps\common\assettocorsa\
    The folder "OV1Info" should be next to the "gMeter" and "system" folders.

    !!! IMPORTANT !!!

    Please make sure you enable the app by going to AC's Settings Panel > General (bottom of the screen).
    For those of you who already use this app, when updating, make sure you don't overwrite your "best_lap.ini" file. Cut and paste to another folder, delete your old "ov1info" folder. Extract the new files and replace the new "best_lap.ini" with your old one.

    For V4.0 the folder structure has been changed: "best_lap.ini" and "car_info.ini" files can be found inside the "userdata" folder.
    Known issues:
    • For those of you who use OV1 F1 2014 HUD as well, please make sure you update it to the latest version (link in my signature). Both apps need to be updated to avoid malfunctions.
    • Waiting for your input on this :)
    Change log v4.1 (August 31th, 2014):
    • Panels can now be attached/detached on both sides of the tachometer;
    • Fuel information is now on its own panel, which can be moved anywhere and also on the right side of the tachometer;
    • Changed fuel gauge (now in the top position, with new design);
    • Moved delta meter display at the bottom of the tachometer (had to be done for visual balance reasons);
    • Tachometer can now be hidden individually (close the main app from apps sidebar);
    • Added 8th gear texture and logic for the Formula Corsa F1 2014 cars;
    • Added "invisible" Pin texture (with back-up).

    • You can have all the information the app provides visible at the same time:

      • Tyres info
      • Race info
    • Added a new window for the settings panel:
      • Change layout

      • Change pemperature units (C, F)

    • New race flag: GREEN (race start)
    Change log v2.0 (January 27th, 2014):
    • Added Tyre information panel:
      • Temperature
      • Pressure
      • Wear
      • Slip angle (grip)
      • Tyre dirty level

    • More features coming soon (enough)! :cool:
    Change log v1.0 (January 6th, 2014):
    • Version change: I declare this a finished product :) of course there are things to add to it, but in this current state it's functional and it has more than everything I thought I could put in it.
    Change log v0.7 (January 5th, 2014):
    • New and improved design;
    • Color schemes with predefined colors;
    • Tachometer animation is now much more smoother and looks like an actual tachometer;
    • Tachometer has RPM labels which represent your actual car's RPM value (that was a pain...);
    • Fuel information is now available, working with Liters and Gallons;
    • Graphical fuel gauge has been added;
    • Low fuel working is customizable from the user config file;
    • Delta meter has been added, with custom min. and max. limits;
    • Pit limiter signal light is now working;
    • Race position is now functional (you can test it with the Drag event);
    • Archive now includes sidebar icons;
    • Car's max_rpms value is now accessed from the Shared Memory. "cars_info.ini" now only stores fuel consumption for track and car combination;
    • Info panels can be hidden to save screen space when not needed.
    • Thanks for all the suggestions guys!
    Change log v0.4 (December 10th, 2013):
    • Major code improvement. App now more flexible and less demanding on the system (hopefully);
    • Tachometer animation is now available. It's using a temporary method until we get the necessary dev tools for a better solution, but it works just fine! :)
    • Shift-light over-reving fix. You can now rev the snot out of your engine, the app knows when to shift (again, hopefully);
    • Users can change the units from "metric" (Kph) to "imperial" (Mph), editing the "user_config.ini". A better solution for switching between units is in development.
    Special Thanks to:
    • Rombik for his awesome-reading-shared-memory-gem,
    • softgrip for his continued support with tips and tricks,
    • rampagebke for showing me the design inspiration,
    • Empty Box for suggesting to add the Delta meter display,
    • kalabaleek for the layout changer suggestion,
    • And to everyone who supported me and gave their suggestion!

    Really good app, I highly recommend it. I think the new Version 1.5.4 (Assetto Corsa itself) used your tyre display. but your Tyre display is still better. Thanks!

    It would be a great app, the best dash for AC even, if it wasn't for the massive frame drops you would experience occationally, which make the game unplayable. Too bad, really.

    Good app but there are some strange things happening now and then. Half the time im able to race 3000 laps on 20 liter. And the tire app does not work properly. It show the stress and dirt but not the wear. It stays at 99% while tire wear is on.

    Absolutely love it! Quick question, is there a reason I am not getting mod tracks (i.e. snoopy's nord) showing up in personal best? I only see default tracks.

      The app has nothing to do with the 3rd party tracks and vehicles. The information is read straight from AC engine (track name, vehicle name). I just look in my own userdata files and I can see a couple of 3rd party tracks and cars there. So, seems there's no issue with it.

      Mare sure you do at least 2 laps in a session, without restarting from the pits, that way the laps will count.
