AC Cars+Tracks TecSpecs ExcelScanner 3.1

Technical Data Scanner (Excel97+2010 w/macros for any dir)

  1. Please Stop This
    Based on the awesome "AC Cars and Tracks Technical Data (Excel 2013) 1.11", I made my own with some vba stuff. Have fun.

    These Excel files DO NOT contain ANY data at first. You have to feed it a "\cars" and "\tracks" directory. It works on click of a button, is reasonably fast and contains some macros. For inspection, the macros are included as textfiles too.

    Paste cars/tracks dir or browse for it on the "control"-sheet and click on "scan". Anyway if the directory is not valid, you will be asked to browse for it. By providing any cars/tracks directory with valid AC json files in it you can also scan directories with turned-off- OR backup-cars.

    To get more detailed information (in particular col "E", the drive+gears info), you must ensure the ".acd" datafile is already extracted for the desired cars - the only way to determine if the car is AWD/AWD2/RWD/FWD, as tags from "ui_car.json" are not always reliable. If available, drive-info from "\data\drivetrain.ini" will be used, the tag from "ui_car.json" wil be omitted. There are more AWD/AWD2 cars then you think!

    If some data is not showing up, a second scan may magically help sometimes, especially after changing preview-size.

    Features:
    -lists data from files out of cars "\data"-dir if available
    NOTE: a second hardcoded temp-dir one can use is "content\cars\examplecar\datadir" (where I extract my .acd files)
    -lists data from all found "ui_car.json" and "ui_track.json" files
    -Simple "mp/h" and "mph" -> "km/h" conversion for topspeed and track length (fails sometimes)
    -wpratio is calculated, old value as cell-comment
    -preview: none or small/medium/big/huge
    -large preview on mouse over small one
    -info about gear ratios as comment on column "drive" or "E"
    - .(dot) is decimal-separator
    -Made in 1080 res
    -Dark+Light design available
    -readonly: it doesnt change anything on your system

    following files will be read:
    ui\ui_car.json
    ui\ui_track.json
    data\drivetrain.ini
    data\brakes.ini
    data\electronics.ini
    data\engine.ini
    data\tyres.ini
    data\fuel_cons.ini
    data\flames.ini
    data\car.ini
    data\wing_animations.ini
    data\aero.ini
    data\ai.ini
    data\drs.ini
    data\ers.ini
    data\lights.ini
    data\suspensions.ini
    skins\*\preview.jpg ' only the first one
    *\map.png ' for tracks

    warning:
    -you have to ALLOW macros in the security options of Excel, to let it do its work
    -can be painly slow, if you have a lot of cars
    -saved excel file can be painly big (>50MB), if you have a lot of cars

    .rar file contains:
    \ACTecSpecs\ACTecSpecs_xx.xlsm
    \ACTecSpecs\ACTecSpecs_xx.xls
    \ACTecSpecs\ACTecSpecs_readme.txt
    \ACTecSpecs\src\AssettoCorsaScanner.bas
    \ACTecSpecs\src\FormProgress.frm
    \ACTecSpecs\src\FormProgress.frx

    ps: Got a bad Trackmap? Delete
    \trackX\data\map.ini
    \trackX\map.png or
    \trackX\layout1\map.png
    \trackX\layout2\map.png (if there are more layouts)
    AC recreates them on first start, but crashes. Next start will work!
