The big change in this release is the notes field. Many people want to save the setup with their runs, and we drew up some elaborate ways of doing this. However, every team has a different way of keeping track of their setup, and it’s very difficult to come up with a solution that makes everybody happy. So for now, we decided to keep it simple. In version 49, every run has a text field that can be used for setups, or notes of any kind. You can fill this in right when you import, or later if you don’t have time right away. To make it easier to keep track of setups, we added a button that finds the last run at the same track, and fills in the information from there.
We have some other changes as well:
- You can now choose between three modes, Car, Kart, and Speedway mode. These settings appear when you first start the program, or in the settings dialog. When you change to Speedway, it changes some of the text in the program, and also tweaks some other settings to work better for Speedway tracks.
- It is now possible to save a track to a file, and then load it again later, for example on your friend’s computer. To do this, go to the Track Management window, and find the “save” and “restore” buttons underneath the list of tracks.
- There used to be some trouble loading and viewing files with very long laps. These would only happen if something goes wrong with the lap timer, but OCD should never slow down like that, so we went ahead and fixed it anyways.
As always, you can get the new version from the downloads page, or simply restart your old version of Off Camber Data. For feedback, feel free to just comment on the blog, or send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org!
