  3. 3.0.5-experimental: hotfix for non-working 3.0.4

  5. 3.0.2-experimental: Optimizations in stracker / ptracker protocol

    Neys
    This is an update for ptracker addressing network performance issues observed with older versions when connected to stracker.

    Many people have asked, so I placed a donation link in the overview page. I'd appreciate, if you'd buy me a beer :)

    ChangeLog:
    • new database version 20 (relevant only for stracker)
    • automatic reconnect when stracker has been restarted.
    • optimizations in stracker / ptracker protocol

  6. 3.0.0-experimental: more leaderboard information, ptracker/stracker protocol optimizations

    Neys
    This version is mainly for testing the new ptracker/stracker protocol to see if it really addresses the warping issues reported by Marty.

    ChangeLog:
    • add display of tyre type in leaderboard (configurable, default on)
    • add display of number of laps in leaderboard (configurable, default off)
    • add display of team in leaderboard (configurable, default off)
    • optimize the stracker/ptracker protocol
    • upgrade to sqlite 3.08.11.1 for better performance
  7. declared version 2.8.1 stable

    This is the very same version as the 2.8.1-experimental (just changed the name).

  8. fix connecting to multi-stracker servers

    Neys
    This version fixes stracker connection problems observed with version 2.8.0 for servers running multiple stracker instances.

  9. Reduce runtime / increase achievable FPS

    Neys
    This is an experimental version, average users are encouraged to stay with version 2.7.4 by now.

    This version addresses the problem of FPS hits and stutters seen by many people especially with higher frame rates. This is done by parallelizing the app's calculation and AC's main loop, technically by automatically spawning an .exe file much like RSR Live Timing does.

    ChangeLog:
    • new db version 19 (relevant only for stracker):
    • add new table Teams
    • add new columns for Tracks and...

  10. Introduce CS Teams, possibility to add UI data to stracker, statistic charts

    Neys
    This is an experimental version, average users are encouraged to stay on version 2.6.10!

    ChangeLog:
    • new db version 19 (relevant only for stracker):
      • add new table Teams
      • add new columns for Tracks and Cars tables
    • rename "Players" to "Drivers" in http server output (but the http addresses remain)
    • http server: add team classification to championships
      • team memberships can be assigned automatically using the entry_list.ini
      • team memberships can be...

  12. Stable version of 2.7.x - adding chat functionality

    Neys
    One of the weaknesses of AC is the lack of a proper chat. I tried to copy what is there in good old LFS and thought I add that to ptracker. You can press Alt+T (customizable) to get the line edit for your message (pressing Alt+T again hides the line edit).

    There are also shortcuts for common messages, currently mapped on the numpad keys 1-9 (Numlock has to be enabled for this). See configuration dialog for details, everything is customizable. It is also customizable whether messages are...

  13. Bugfixes for the chat system

    Neys
    Hopefully the last experimental version of 2.7.x; thanks for all your reports.

    ChangeLog:
    • message shortcuts do not send messages anymore, when
      • sitting in pits
      • the chat editor is already active
      • whenever the ptracker window is hidden
    • all shortcuts are inactive when sitting in pits / when the ptracker window is hidden
    • changed default values for some config settings:
      • lap time mode is now "all" instead "fastest only"
      • message display time is...

  14. Improvements in message sound configs, chat message shortcuts and overall bugfixes

    Neys
    Still labelled as experimental (but this one can be seen as a "release candidate" for 2.7.x series).

    Change Log
    • fix zoom factor for some of the hotlap line elements
    • provide warning if in game app overlapping is disabled
    • add event-type configurable sounds
    • rearranged config dialog
    • fix shortcut message edit lines in config dialog
    • user can now choose how chat message shortcuts are processed (direct send, or send to chat editor)
    • alternating colors for chat messages...
  15. now with ptracker download

    Neys
    oops, last upload has been stracker 2.7.2
  16. Fix chat, automatic and manual reconnection, zoom

    Neys
    This is an experimental version, average users shall better stick with the 2.6.x versions.

    I hope that this version finally has a working hotkey support for the new chat feature. I missed to provide a .dll file with 2.7.1. I changed the default hotkey for talking to Alt+T, because the plain T have had too many side effects. I really like the chat addition, racing is now fun also without teamspeak :)

    There is also a new automatic reconnect feature when the connection to stracker is lost for...
  17. Hotfix for 2.7.0

    Neys
    This is an experimental version, average users shall stick with 2.6.8.

    Reason for 2.7.0's failure was a problem with my windows registry. After fixing this I was able to reproduce the problem and hopefully fix it. For an explanation of the chat feature, see the update notes of 2.7.0.

    ChangeLog:
    • better debugging of import failures by cleaning up ptracker.py
    • display help for chat at the beginning
    • rename LMenu / RMenu to LAlt / RAlt
    • add missing .pyd modules
  18. Experimental: Advanced chatting

    Neys
    EDIT: It seems there is an issue with this version for many players. I'm going to try to find the root cause and fix it...

  19. Compatibility with AC 1.1.x

    Neys
    Change Log:
    • new database version: 17 (rename all existing references to vallelunga and vallelunga-club to new naming scheme, no changes in the database schema itself)
    • support track configurations (tracks are now called <trackname>-<trackconfig>, if they have a track configuration)
    • add support for using the AC server's TCP port + 42 as stracker connection port

  20. 2.6.7 (session change fixes)

    Neys
    I believe that this version can be labelled as stable.

    Change Log:
    • fix session change issues when stracker is present (when changing into qualify, avoid to take over best times of last session)
    • remove some debugging info from py_log.txt
