Working on 'AC Logger'

    Hello guys,

    I'm working on an app for Assetto Corsa, that I've called 'AC Logger'. You can save in a .csv file a few information about your car: rpm of the engine, lap number, pedal brake state, current date/time, etc. The app is very simple: it contains only a button, that start and stop the logger.
    When all data are saved in the .csv file, you can elaborate it using spreadsheet software like Excel or OpenOffice.

    Anyone interested in debugging? :)
    Bye!!!

    Sorry for this post. I've copied this into 'Assetto Corsa Mods' forum.
    Thanks.

    Would it be possible to make data output compatible with some telemetry software, like MOTEC?

    Very interesting question. For now my logger exports the data in a .csv file, that is a simple text file that you can open with notepad or import in Excel. Today I will post here a .zip file with the current version. And i begin to study the format of the data used by MOTEC. Thanks for the input!

    I've published the current version, 0.8, here:
    http://download.vivendobyte.net/download.aspx?id=15
    You can download it for free.

    You must unzip the file in the main path of Assetto Corsa inside the Steam folder. Here:
    C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\SteamApps\common\assettocorsa

    *** USAGE ***
    The app is very simple. Click the button to start the logger, and click it again to stop. The .csv file is saved in "C:\AC Logger" folder (by default, you can eventually modify the Python script to change the path). While the logger is running, you can see a counter, that contains how many rows are logged inside the file. Eacy row in the file contains a lot of informations about your car: speed, rpm, wheel's data (temperature, pressure), and so on. I'm working on a Excel spreadsheet, where you can elaborate these data more intuitively! :))
    Each .csv file is named using pilot name, car name, track name, and current date time.

    Please feel free to send me any suggestion, or feedback. It's only a beta version, of course!
    :))

    You should really try to log the files in format that is readable by MoTeC software.

    Ok. Is MoTec freeware? Can anybody post here a log file for this software, so I can analyze it?

    For now, I'm downloading 'i2 Standard 1.21.0031' from here:
    http://www.motec.com/software/latestreleases/

    Thanks for your suggestion!!

    I think it's free. There are loggers for rF and rF2 that export to MoTeC files.
    I guess it's about learning the file format.

    I don't find any information about MoTec data file format! :-(

    Try to contact the guy who wrote Data Aquisition Plugin for rFactor, maybe he will know something?

    When you go to the "\Documents\Assetto Corsa\aim" folder, you will see a "telemetry_dump.nkt" file. It is possible to open this with "AIM Race Studio 2",some kind of telemetry software like Motec.

    I have tried this, but it doesn't work when I'm in a session. Looks like it only wrote data after leaving a session.

    I'm sorry for interrupting with this info, but I thought it might lead into something you didn't know, and maybe this is something you are interested in.

    Sounds great either way. Looking to get more serious with my sim racing and also improve. Data will definitely help in that aspiration.

    This sounds interesting! Will download and start experimenting.
    Did some apps for LFS long time ago, just to develop my own toolbox of analyzers :).

    would it be possible to log the X,Y,Z coordinates, also if possible the direction its pointing. Those 2 lots of information would be the most helpful to anyone that wishes to recreate a particular race in a cg app. Ive played with a few race sims and a few telem programs and some export the direction, but ive never seen both the direction and position saved..
