Track lap times not working

Hi, I'm working on a conversion of a track from rFactor (with permission of the original author). I have almost finished, but I can't get the lap times to work, it only count the laps made. Here are some picture of what I have in the Track Editor




Also, there is any possibility to don't have corridors lines in the track? The track I'm converting already have some corridors lines from rFactor.
Thanks in advance!

The corridors are an easy one to solve. You delete the file line.tga in the track's directory and that makes the corridor invisible. For my tracks, I model a grid onto the track and use TrackEd to line the corridors up, as shown in the picture.



As for lap times not working, I'm not sure what is wrong. It seems you have everything in order, but you should try adding the speedtrap line somewhere on track just to make sure it's not an error because of that. Also, you may want to remove the checkpoints until you have sorted out the timing issues.

Setting the speedtrap line solved the problem, and deleting line.tga file worked perfectly too. Solving the problem was way easier than expected, many thanks!!

Anybody had similar issues? Right now I have a track where I just cant seem to get the lap times working. Are the laptimes dependent on something else than just the .rdf file? Is it a combination of files?

Hi, it's all in the .RDF file. Check that Splits and a Start/Finish line are properly done.

Does anything looks off on the first look? I scratch my head because I have another track that works fine and there does not seem much different.

Well, you don't seem to have any terrain along the track. The racedata lines should sit on the solid ground, so either put some grass along the track or make the lines smaller to match the width of the track.

Good to know, thanks! For now I made the lines smaller to fit inside the track and everything works perfectly.
