Any time you try to change the timing gates, pit entry, or pit exit, you get an unhandled exception.
See the end of this message for details on invoking
just-in-time (JIT) debugging instead of this dialog box.

************** JIT Debugging **************
To enable just-in-time (JIT) debugging, the .config file for this
application or computer (machine.config) must have the
jitDebugging value set in the system.windows.forms section.
The application must also be compiled with debugging
enabled.

For example:

<configuration>
<system.windows.forms jitDebugging="true" />
</configuration>

When JIT debugging is enabled, any unhandled exception
will be sent to the JIT debugger registered on the computer
rather than be handled by this dialog box.

Because of the sort of person I am, I will continue to totally waste my time trying to get it to work.

Because no matter how frustrating and impossible it is to get it to work, I want to make a track.

Tried a fresh install using .NET 3.5 too, still doesn't work.

Gonna try installing Windows XP SP0 RTM, and will try it over and over as I update until I find the problem.

But it just does not work in SP3.

I have proven without a shadow of a doubt that 0.8.0.3 does not work.

At all.

How anyone gets it to work I do not know.

------------------------

I know I am not a paying customer, yet, but I want to be.

Therefore I would very much like a response to this problem, as I am sure 100s of other people would.

This is a massive problem, and I have done tests under controlled conditions proving there is a huge bug.

I look forward to your response.

Have you tried to make simple track without any KML import?
EDIT: Sorry not export but import :)

I'm using 0.8.0.3 on XP and I habitually import KML files with no problems, but...

Before I start messing with timing gates etc, I make sure that the track is smooth and drivable. Almost all of the KML files that I have used are imported with seriously messed up corners etc. Could this be an issue?

Also, I always get the height data sorted out on the KML before I import it. Again, its something to check out.

Next, the closed circuit: Iv done this a few times and I find that the join between the two ends is often a bit of a mess. so again, I sort this out long before I think about timing gates.

Idea:
Open BTB and import your KML track data. Select the whole track and right click to choose to smooth the control points in all directions (cant remember what the name is off hand, sorry).

Then add some basic terrain to the track and 'Drive' around it in BTB to make sure that the track is really okay for driving.

Then try to edit the timing gates and see what happens. If you get no luck, post again and we can try to work through some more.

....no it doesnt work , because the start is impossible.

I tried it now after all updates, 120 re-installs, many updates of directx, change the graphiccard, update all drivers (sound, graphiccard,...)
