    Hi Frank!

    Very nice job, I just started to use VM Liveview. The inofficial version, as it is more advanced. :)
    But I can not find one answer in the files to my question: Where can I change the default 1 sec refresh rate for the live and track views? In the official release I could change the selectable values in the conf.php but the inofficial just don't react anymore to that. Please, give me some advices. :)

    We are keen to implement this also - but with no one responding to the thread or developing, I fear this may sadly go the same way as many other great ideas do.

    Awesome work Frank! Pity you couldn't hang around ;(

    He seems to be around, but just won't respond to you unless you ask in German.

    OT warning.

    Taking a look at the example page Palm+Beach+Int+Road+Course I feel sympathy for this guy.
    HTML:
    Rank Driver       Class                Vehicle         Laps Sector1  Sector2  Sector3  Lap Time Gap     Interval

    With over 4700 laps around the track he still have some major problems.

    Sorry Guys,

    I am very glad u like this tool, but life has kicked my a.s.s. the real rough way ^^ ;o).

    When I do not respond, this is not a matter of disrespecting your request for support, it is just a matter of keeping my head up straight ... so far so good.

    Well, I am trying to release a completely "reworked" version maybe in the near future, but I can't really say when it will be ...

    Just to mention some changes:
    - Fully switch to UTF-8
    - Support of special characters in relevant strings like: Driver Name, Class, Vehicle, aso.
    - A completely new built from scratch console loader (rFactorSLC) written in C# to support Windows and Linux (with Mono) Operating Systems
    - A language template file for the browser front end to change the language on the fly (not sure if it really makes sense !?!?)

    On the other hand I would like u to encourage to help out those guys who are not that sophisticated in handling IT-Infrastructures and maybe there are some who are willing to support this tool by writing a HowTo of installing and maintain this live view, because I really h.a.t.e. writing documentation ;o) ...

    So hang on in there!

    Cheers
    Frank

    @Enni: Vielen Dank für Deine Unterstützung den anderen gegenüber !!!

    Hi Val,

    really appreciate your support, feels great! And yes, getting some people of the Shakespeare fraction rocking the documentation really might help too *big grin* ;o) ...

    Thanks & kind regards
    Frank

    Hi there,

    before I go any further into a Select Language functionality, I would like to know from you guys if it really does make sense?

    I personally think motorsport is international and the few information shown in such a tool are more or less self-explanatory, I guess ...

    But see for yourself and let me know what you think: http://vxracing.de/vmliveview/monitor.php

    Cheers
    Frank

    Excellent Frank. I am very competent in the language of Bill Shake a Spear. I am also great with most I.T. - yet php is a weakness and has mostly escaped me. Maybe if I CAN get my head around it and working, I would be the best kind of candidate to write such a thing.

    Hi Neuro,

    you can modify the value of the following line within file css.monitordata.js to your needs:
    Code:
    function loadData(){
       var timeoutValue = [COLOR="#FF0000"]1000[/COLOR]; // value is in milliseconds
       ...
    }
    
    The next release will have a config parameter within inc.config.php for both, monitor and track view.

    Cheers
    Frank

    NOTE: Watch out for the text file enconding when modifying. It has to be UTF-8 without BOM. Use something simillar like Notepad++ ...

    Hi Hoschi,

    I am thinking about a pre-release version maybe in the next 2 to 3 weeks, to see if all the changes I made can reside or wether I have to go back one or two steps again ...

    Cheers
    Frank
