    hi gerald,
    i am on build 880 and your spotter v1.8.1. i get a CTD when i set "Visual.Car.Radar.mode=0". it is all ok on 3, but with 0 i can drive 1 or 2 laps and suddenly back on desktop. it was in single player with some AI. didn't see, if it was with a car close behind my car or not...

    I have this CTD with settings other than 3 as well, Gerald. Fantastic feature though, amazing work.

    - Fix CTD when the radar mode is set to 0

    Cannot succeed to produce a CDT with mode 1 & 2

    Hi!

    Thank you for the plugin!
    However it would be nice to know (in short)
    - how can I adjust the volume (the ingame volume setting doesn't work)?
    - how can I turn off those ugly circles (edit: I found this)

    Basically all I need is a simple spotter.

    Thanx.

    Sorry Gerald, I should have been more clear. It only crashed on 0 for me as well. Also, I used your spotter with the indicators on 3 last night, and I think it works really well. It did not feel intrusive. I'll be leaving it on, very useful feature

    Hi, this is a great plugin!

    I was wondering if there was a lazy man's quick fix for this problem: When driving at Brianza 10k with Howston G6 Mk IIIB, the spotter tells me that the tires are overheating, when only one tire is reaching optimal temperature (80c), while other tires are colder. There are only three proper corners in the track so the tires hardly warm up, but the spotter thinks otherwise...

    Hi,
    how do you know the current temperature of the tires ? the rF2 HUD show instant surface temperature, but by default the plugin configuration use the inner layer temperature.

    I will check if i have a bug in my temperature test/trigger.

    I'm not at my PC at the moment, but it is the plugin that has gazillion of features (Tracksomething) that shows me the temps. Cheers!

    Still not at my PC, but as I recall the temps are pretty much the same as if you quit and checked them at the garage. Haven't compared them to the rf2 HUD values.

    Anyhow if the instant surface temperature hardly reaches optimal, how can the inner layer be overheating?

    It's TrackMapPlugin. It could well be that the middle of left rear tyre goes over 100c (or whatever value is used) at Parabolica which warms its inner layer and triggers the spotter. Considering the short duration I think the information in this case is misleading. Well they didn't have spotters in late 60's...:p

    Hello Gerald,
    is it possible to have information about the fuel?
    For example during the race a useful information is the fuel need to end the race.
    Thanks in advance.

    Lovely plugin made there! I've spit through the wiki's, but they still left me some questions/requests.
    First the questions:
    1. Is there a way to identify the car in front or behind you, similar to BehindTimeEvolution, but than for the car actually driving in front of you (in cases with lapped traffic).
    2. What happens if you look for a driver name, but it is not found? Is there a way to give another command when the driver name is not found?
    3. During full course yellows, there is the option that only lead lap drivers can pit. Is there a way to tell whether you are on the lead lap or not?
    4. Would it be possible to multiply/divide to calculate variables? I wanted to have an event to mention that filling up the tank from that moment on will bring you to the finish, for which I wanted to have: Substract,RemainingLaps,FuelCapacity/FuelPerLap, if smaller than 0, give that command once (than set it off with EventTag)

    And requests:
    For triggers:
    5. On Receiving Penalty
    6. OnGamePhaseChange (based on the input)
    For inputs:
    7. TrackWetness
    And further:
    8. Get reports on damage
    9. Something like when you request a pit stop, you get information on what changes you planned (change tyres, add fuel, fix damage, etc.)

    I understand not everything may be possible (though you have proven me wrong a couple of times already), but I would really appreciate some of these functions.

    I made a soundpack!

    Hey all,

    This plugin is amazing, but the robot voice leaves a lot to be desired. I thought i'd edit some of the files one evening, and add some radio artifacts...well, i ended up just recording an entirely new soundpack :p (DL HERE: https://mega.co.nz/#!bdEy1AYZ!20nfWck3JIuBIrwQrewUlnM5WhfSXCYQ_UVLZ95orKI)

    I made it for myself, but why not share it with the rF2 community. I tried to keep the radio messages natural, which means some shorthand is used (e.g. the spotter says "P2" instead of "second position")

    P.S. the soundpack isn't that loud, so you'll probably have to adjust your audio levels in-game in order to hear it clearly. (I batch normalized in Audacity, but it's still a little too quiet I think.)

    Here's 8 laps at Estoril as a demo...

    No worries! Hope you find it useful.

    Also, to anyone that's watched the video, there's a graphical glitch around 11:45, those billboards flickering like crazy. Does anyone know how to fix that?
