Version 66: XY

Ford GT #66We have another version ready, full of goodies and improvements. The most visible new feature is certainly the new plot type: X/Y plots. They are a bit basic in their current form, a herald of things to come, but they are already quite useful. Scroll down to see an example configuration!

There is a ton of other stuff in this release as well, so here is an abridged list:

  • The channel selection menu for the graphs now stays open until you dismiss it.
  • You can now navigate the graphs with the keyboard. The mouse moves the cursor like normal, but you can now also move the cursor by pressing ← or →, and you can zoom in or out with ↑ and ↓.
  • We made a major performance improvement of the graph, especially on Windows.
  • We added a special math channel for Speedway users, calculating wheel slip in a different way that works on a Speedway bike.
  • The “Current Values” window (usually at the top right) was using long channel names, wasting a lot of space. Now it uses short channel names.
  • In version 62, we added the possibility to flip the delta graph, but there was a bug that made all lap colors the same when you do that. This is now fixed.
  • We now limit the number of simultaneously open laps to 30. 30 is enough squiggly lines to get confused anyways.
  • The “Add Runs” dialog is now bigger by default, and saves its size between restarts.
Speed vs. Acceleration on the XY Plot

Comparing Speed with Acceleration on the XY graph gives you a simple way of checking whether a change to the engine settings had the desired effect.

We also made some changes specific to certain lap timers:

  • For the UniGo:
    • The steering wheel sensor on the UniBox now calibrates itself automatically.
    • Barometric pressure now imports correctly from the UniGo 8005.
  • For the ALFANO:
    • The steering wheel and pedal sensors on ALFANO now import under the correct channel names. Also, the units for the lambda sensor are now correct.
    • OCD can now import ALF files from VisualData2 or the ALFANO Android app.
    • The track map now shows up correctly no matter the hemisphere you drive in.

As always, you can get the new version from the downloads page, or simply restart your old version of Off Camber Data. If you would like to contribute, and especially if you have some thoughts on additions to the X/Y plots, feel free to just comment on the blog, or send us an email at!
