Version 3.9.0 is now available!

Among the many updates are several new track mapping options.  You can now flip the track maps horizontally or vertically to better orient them.  You can also specify the width and color and style of the track map and sector overlays.

Existing users can get the update through the updater that was installed with the Z1 Dashboard.

The demo is available here: http://www.z1simwheel.com/dashboard/demo.cfm?source=krp

Here are the full release notes:

* Added third sector color for improved differentiation between sectors on track maps.

* Added two dashes for the Porsche Ruf RT 12. One is 8,000 RPM and one is 10,000 RPM.  You can choose the colors of the dial backgrounds by setting the background color in the settings dialog.

* Added the Super Late Model dashboard.

* Fixed a bug in iRacing where your driver name would appear twice in the standings screen.

* You can now use POV (hat switches) as well as joystick buttons to select icons within the Z1 software.

* You can now specify the width and color of the track when it is drawn during the auto-creation process.

* You can now specify the width of the sector overlay when it is drawn onto the track map.

* You can now specify how the sector overlays are drawn.  The options are solid (as was previous used), dotted and dashed.

* The track map auto-creation now works with iRacing.  You will need to record a full lap of telemetry within iRacing and then open that lap in the Z1 Dashboard telemetry analysis screen.  Then press the compass button to generate the track map.  This results in a track map that can be more accurate than the ones that ship with the Z1 Dashboard software.

* The software will now learn how long each pitstop takes at every track and with every car that you race.  This information will be used to calculate the pitstop deltas in the track map screen to give you a more accurate position of where you will exit the pits after your stop.

* You can now flip the track maps left/right and up/down.  This allows you to better position auto created track maps, that sometimes might have been backwards or upside down when created.  Just click the left-right arrow button or the up-down arrow button located in the top left and top right corners of the track map dashboard.

* If you do not want the Z1 Dashboard software to check for the availability of Assetto Corsa TP or Codemaster's sims, then settings their IP address to '0' in the settings.ini file will cause the software to skip checking them.  This can improve startup performance of the Z1 Dashboard software in some cases.

* Codemasters F1 series is now supported.  Note that the data provided by these sims is limited so you will not have all the features available to you that you have with other sims.

Enjoy!

Our LCD screen is the only one that Windows doesn't see as a monitor which the software will work with.  If you have an existing screen that Windows can see as a monitor then it would work with that.  For example the Mimo monitors.

Our screen is designed to stand on its own or be integrated into dashboard, as it has 4 screw holes on the back for attaching it to something.

I don't know if a MyChron 4 would work, but have a feeling that it would not because its resolution isn't good enough and Windows probably won't see it as a monitor.  However to be sure you would have to test it out and see.

this looks like an awesome bit of kit,

i only have one question, whats the difference between the demo and when you buy it ? does it unlock new features or is the demo time limited,

also on your site you have the option to buy the software with a LCD display, can you use any 4.3" display of does it have to be yours? and if so why does it have to be yours?

im very interested in this for my simulator,

regards
sam


The only difference between the demo and the full version is that the demo will quit after 15 minutes.  All functionality is the same.

You can use it on any screen that Windows considers a monitor.  So if you have an extra monitor that will work.  or if you have one of those USB monitors, like a Mimo one, that will work as well.

i have just downloaded the software and it just keeps flashing waiting for sim is this because its a demo version?

sam


It may be flashing because you did not put the plugin in the KRP plugin directory.    In the documents/z1simwheel/plugins/kart racing pro beta 7 directory is the file Z1SWKRP7.dlo.  Copy this file to your KRP plugin directory which is C:\Program Files (x86)\Kart Racing Pro\plugins by default.

The Z1 Dashboard software is now fully compatible with the latest version of Kart Racing Pro.  Display your kart's dashboard on a separate window or monitor.  You can also display the track map with your location, timing and scoring details, fuel figures and more!


You can download the latest demo here: http://www.z1simwheel.com/dashboard/demo.cfm?source=krp

We just released version 3.8.0, and here are all the improvements that were made in this release:
* Improved performance for better CPU usage.

* Added support for SimBin sims. Note that as the current SimBin API is quite limited there are several features of the Z1 Dashboard software that are note available, most notably the track map display.

* Updated support for the latest version of Kart Racing Pro (10b beta). The auto-track map creation now works with this sim. Also added is throttle, brake, lat and long G forces so the telemetry dashboard now shows more information.

* Updated support for the latest version of Project CARS, adding much more infortmation as it is now available from their API. The auto-track map creation now works for this sim.

* Fixed a bug that could cause the app to crash when disconnecting from Assetto Corsa.

* Improved the auto-track map creation process to include sector positions.

* Added the auto-track map creation to rFactor 1 & 2.

* Added the auto-track map creation to ARCA Sim Racing

* Added the auto-track map creation to Game Stock Car

Can you add the ability to get the percentage of the way round the track the kart is at any given time?


Percentage = 100 * _fPos
_fPos is a parameter of RunTelemetry


Brilliant.  Thanks!

I've tried getting the Beta 7 output plugin to work, but without success.  I had no issues when using Beta 6.  But the example file for 7 is not outputting anything.  It's as if the sim doesn't recognize the plugin.  Any ideas on what I may be doing wrong?
