Now I have played bit more with the F1 2013 datafeed with extradata="2". and extradata="3" values in hardware_settings_config.xml.
Based on this, in the new version there are:
Automatic track detection (all tracks including Classic). I found this really handy e.g. in short online races, as the tool automatically changes tracks, so you can just stay in the game all the time.
Fuel usage/excess fuel left for race (+ FP & Q). For race (online and offline) it shows in 'Race Info' the amount of fuel left + excess fuel. This makes is really easy + fun to optimize the fuel usage during the race. Yesterday when I was just supposed to test it quickly, I ended up racing from 10pm to 3 am.
Also in 'Race Info' as requested I added autoscroll for laptimes and "Theoretical all-time best", which are kept across sessions. These can be toggled.
If you are updating from 1.x or 2.x, just unzip the package and replace Telemetry.jar in your Telemetry Application install dir.
If you are doing a new installation, please read the ReadMe.txt in the .zip for detailed installation instructions.
I consider this as the final version for F1 2013, unless there are some really serious bugs/issues or if I can come up with some new functionality.
I have learned that since the F1 2012 final version there has been an option to export KERS/DRS/Fuel data from the Codemasters F1 games in the telemetry export feed.
I have now updated my Telemetry application to take advantage to this.
In order to fully use the new telemetry feed, you must edit the hardware_settings_config.xml (in <My Games>\FormulaOne2013) and change extradata="1" to extradata="2".
Due to the changes in the feed, here is list of some of the new functionality added to the 2.0 version.
New save file format. The system is still compatible with the F1 perfview format and the application can still save files in that format, if needed.
Fastest lap with KERS/DRS. The fastest lap save file format is almost the same, but with 2.0 the KERS/DRS data is now saved too. Old fastest lap files don't have those, but the old fastest lap data can still be used.
KERS/DRS data in Telemetry graph panel, comparison maps and graph panel.
Brake temperature data available.
Fuel usage/estimates in Race Info. Also cleaned Race Info to be more useful for race data.
Some additional JSON feeds for the embedded http server. See the http server readme.
Many small fixes
you can just copy the Telemetry.jar to the location, where you had installed the previous version of the application
And then you must remember to modify the hardware_settings_config.xml
Please see the ReadMe.txt in the .zip package for further details.
Here is new version (1.1) of my telemetry application. I consider this as the last version for F1 2013 (unless I need to make a bug fix).
What is new:
Added extra Graph panel. You can set e.g. Speed to x-axis and Gears to y-axis and show only points where Revs are above e.g. 16000.
Added embedded http server. Now you can change track e.g. from tablet/smartphone and access some of the data also on your tablet/smart phone. This is a proof of concept, but can be easily expanded, if need arises. See the readMe in the html_root directory.
Added connection tester, see the ReadMe
Fixes/changes in RaceInfoPanel
Up/down keys scroll the laptimes on bottom-left panel. This is handy, if you have driven more laps, than can be shown in the screen
Changed front-wheel indicators to show skid (instead of spin)
Added "Theoretical best" to laptimes display
Change the graph part show both laptime + session times
Added highlight to the minimap (bottom-right) for the telemetry graph (zoom in with mouse scroll or drag the telemetry graph)
Previous lap graphs now work correctly (under RED LINE button)
Cursor for Prev.lap also fixed (click with mouse in the graph)
Here are screenshots from the new GraphPanel
