Live Telemetry Data Android App

Discussion in 'F1 2011 - The Game' started by arhopkins3, Feb 22, 2012.

  1. Hi. I'm currently at university finishing a degree in computer game development and would love to write an app for iPhone/Android that shows live data from Codemasters F1 2011. I have seen that KenKen has a datalogger which reads data sent by F1 2011 and then saves it into a CSV file on the disk.

    So my questions are..

    What data is being sent from F1 2011 and is any of it specific to F1 as a discipline?
    Is there any documentation for the protocol used (packets/messages sent etc)
    Where can I find the specification for what is being sent in order to analyse it and forward it live (over WiFi) to an android or iphone?

  2. F1 2011 will go the way of the Dodo bird once the next shiny object filled game comes out :)

    You should make one for rFactor 2 as it will have longevity just like rF1 which is over 5 years old and still being raced widely across the world.

  3. If I can ascertain the details of the UDP/TCP stream from F1 2011 and get started on an app, nothing would stop it from expanding to support several game types / data acquisition methods.
  4. It seems its "outSim UDP" data that I'm talking about. Will research more into this. Is the F1 2011 UDP data the same as the other games that use it? Is it standard ?
  5. Might be worth checking these guys forums out - http://www.eksimracing.com/
    They have their SLI running on android devices now, but I believe its still very limited support for 2011 as opposed to proper sims like rF and rF2, netcar etc.
  6. F1 2011 outputs some telemetry data to UDP but it's not exactly same with outsim output.
    Check this http://www.lfsforum.net/showthread.php?t=73997.
    F1 2011 output is exactly same as F1 2010, I already checked detail of its output for creating my DataLogger mod.

    I've done some analysis on the UDP packet here too, used on my F1Speed mod.

    arhopkins3 how'd you go with this? F1Speed does pretty much what describe you want to do.
