    I think I have the same issue. I use the Z1 server and run a dashboard in front of my wheel and also run the telemetry on another PC.
    The last few days the server shuts down just after pit exit also using the 312 Ferrari.
    Actually haven't checked if it is any other cars because I am loving the 312!

    Hi @Ari Antero,
    Can you share the web site link where you bought your MicroStar (Touch screen) 10" ?

    Thanks.

    Z1 crashes only with Ferrari 312 mod. I have solved this by starting one extra Z1 dashboard, but first still crashes.

    * There is now an option to view the track map when in the garage screens. Display the drop down menu to see this new option.

    * Graphical updates to the following dashboards: Z1 Dash 1; RUF 8,000 RPM; RUF 9,000 RPM, RUF RT 12; RUF RT 12 10,000 RPM, F1 1980s Dash, Lotus Elise SC Dash, Skip Barber Dash, Spec Racer Ford Dash, Lotus 79 Dash

    * Some dashboards now have shadows cast by the needles onto the dials where appropriate. This feature can be turned off in the Display tab of the settings dialog by setting Shadows to off. Dashhboards with shadows are: RUF 8,000 RPM; RUF 9,000 RPM, RUF RT 12; RUF RT 12 10,000 RPM, IMSA Dash 1, IMSA Dash 2, Lotus 49 Dash, F1 1980s Dash, Lotus Elise SC Dash, Skip Barber Dash, Spec Racer Ford Dash, Lotus 79 Dash.

    * Improved the scrolling in the settings dialog that use scroll bars. The Track driver list can now be scroll up or down using the mouse wheel.

    * There is now an option in the Display tab called 'Settings Loc'. If you set this to No then the Z1 Dashboard will not check to see if the settings dialog will be off screen when it is opened. This may help in certain circumstances if the settings dialog does not appear over the Z1 Dashboard window or gets moved to another monitor.

    * Updated the LED images in the CAR 3 tab of the settings dialog to use AntiAliasing for a better look.

    * Added a Button debug mode to help diagnose any potential button issues.

    * The Tire Dash now displays Camber in the tire diagrams for the sims that support it.

    * There is now an option to circle the cars driven by drivers who are on your tracked driver list when they are displayed on the track map. This feature can be turned on or off in the Tracked tab of the settings dialog. The color used to circle the cars is the currently selected highlight color.

    * The Dashboard will now display a confirmation dialog if you are trying to connect to an instance of the Z1 Server that is running on the same machine as the Dashboard. This is because such a connection is not necessary. However if you really want to establish such a connection and don't want the warning message to appear then tick the checkbox for "Allow local server connections" in the Network tab of the Dashboard's settings dialog.

    You need Oculus beta 2.0 installed on your machine.

    Then you would run the Z1 Dashboard as normal on your monitor.

    Next go into VR and the Oculus home room to view the new virtual desktop. Select the monitor that has the Z1 running on it. Then grab the Z1 and drag it into your VR home room and pin it where you want it. Once you have done this launch the sim, and the Z1 should remain where you pinned it.

    Once Oculus releases version 2.0 properly we will do a video explaining this.

    Got it. You have to move it outside of the virtual desktop, then it works. Thanks Russell.

    This version brings several cool new features, and lots of new and updates dashboards. We've got 11 new dashboards, and 12 updates ones. In addition we've introduced brake lock level lights to many dashboards. There is also a new feature to alert you if a car is to your left or right.

    The latest version is available here http://z1simwheel.com/dashboard/demo.cfm.

    Here is the full list of release notes:
    * Added 2 new dashboards for the VW Rally Cross car. These are called VW Rally Cross Dash 1 and VW Rally Cross Dash 2. These are similar, but have slight differences in the information displayed.

    * Added 2 new dashboards for the Ford GTE car. These are called Ford GT 2017 Dash1 and Ford GT 2017 Dash 2.

    * Added 3 new dashboards for the 2018 Indy Car. These are Indy Car 2018 Dash 1-3.

    * Added a new Z1 Dash 2 dashboard.

    * Added a new dashboard intended for the Audi R18 and similar cars.

    * Added a new dashboard the the Porsche 919. This is called the Porsche 919 Dash 2 and is a variant on the first 919 dash form version 4.13.

    * Added a new track - Track Map 11. This incorporates a gear and RPM circle, with car speed, water temp and lap number, as well as the current lap time and delta time.

    * Added a new feature called 'brake lock level lights'. This works with any sim that reports wheel speed. Currently this is Assetto Corsa, Codemaster F1 sims, Kart Racing Pro, Project Cars 1 & 2, Race Room and rFactor 2. This feature allows you to use the left and right most 3 shift light LEDs to indicate when you are close to locking up the front left or right wheels. You can set the sensitivity of this feature in the Car 1 tab. There are three drop downs on the right labeled Lock Level 1 - 3. These control when each LED will be illuminated. The order of the LEDs is outside to inside. Settings the lock level to zero will disable the feature. The brakes must also be engaged to at least 15% in order for this LED to illuminate.

    There are two ways to set the sensitivity, the first is using speed. With this setting the number you choose in the first drop down is the difference in wheel speed between the front wheel and the rear wheel. This speed is in the currently chosen units. So if you have speed displayed in kph, and you have set lock level 1 to 15 Speed, then if you front wheel if rotating 15 kph slower (or more) than the rear wheel the LED will illuminate.

    The second option is Percent (Prcnt). When using this option the LED will illuminate if the front wheel's rotation speed is the selected percentage less than the rear wheel rotation speed. So if you selected 15 Prcnt, then if the front wheel if rotating at a rate of 15% (or more) less than the rear wheel the LED will illuminate. Note for the sims Project Cars 1 & 2, Race Room and rFactor 2 you must use the percentage option.

    You may set the sensitivity of the LEDs on a car by car basis. The color of the illuminated LED can be set in the Car 3 tab. This color is the same for all dashboards for the selected car, but can vary between cars.

    The following dashboards support this feature: V8 Super Car Dash, Corvette C7 Dash, Corvette Dash, Cadillac CTS-V Dash, Dallara Dash, DW 12 Dash, Daytona Prototype Dash, Ford GT Dash, Generic Dash, LMP Dash, F1 9180 Dash, all F1 2014 dashes, Ford GT 2017 Dash 1 & 2, Formula Dash 1 & 2, GT Dash 1-3, Mazda Miata Dash, Star Mazda Dash, VW Jetta Dash, Kart Dash 1 & 2, Track Map 2.

    * The brake lock level lights are now an option for the left and right LEDs on the SMZ1 wheels. You can select if one or more of these lights should be used for this purpose in the Car 3 dialog. This can be set on a car by car basis. The left LEDs will illuminate for data regarding the left front wheel. The right LEDs will illuminate for data regarding the right front wheel.

    * Graphical update have been made to the following dashboards: Silverado, Silverado B, Legends Ford, Legends Ford B, Monte Carlo SS, Monte Carlo SS B, Silver Crown, Street Stock, Super Late Model, SK Modified, SK Modified B and Sprint Car.

    * Shadows have been added to the following dashboards: Silverado, Silverado B, Legends Ford, Legends Ford B, Monte Carlo SS, Monte Carlo SS B, Silver Crown, Street Stock, Super Late Model, SK Modified, SK Modified B and Sprint Car. These can be turned off by changing 'Draw Shadows' to 'No' in the Display tab of the settings dialog.

    * There is a new option in the Car 1 tab called 'Show Wings As'. (Scroll to the bottom to see it.) This determines how the rear wing adjustments are displayed. The default is 'Number'. Most cars will use this and the wing adjustment will be displayed as a basic number (ie, 1,2,3...). The new alternative option is 'Distance'. This will display the wing settings as a distance (or measurement). So you will get readings like 1", 2", 3", etc. This distance will be in either inches or millimeters depending on what your current Distance Units is set to (in the General tab).

    * There is a new option to alert you to cars on your left or right. This can be turned on or off using the 'Spotter' setting in the General tab of the settings dialog. A yellow arrow will appear on the left or right of the dashboard to indicate the presence of a car. If more than one car is on you left or right then two arrow will appear. Note this feature currently only works with iRacing.

    Version 4.14 introduces the Brake Lock Level Lights feature, which works with any sim that reports wheel speed.

    [​IMG]

    This feature allows you to use the left and right most 3 shift light LEDs to indicate when you are close to locking up the front left or right wheels. You can set the sensitivity of this feature for each of the three LEDs on a car-by-car basis.

    You can choose to have the LEDs illuminate based on speed differences, or overall percentage differences between the front and rear wheels.

    No, the Z1 Dashboard is its own application.

    Here's a great new feature I've been longing for that Russell didn't mention above:

    Timing Delta Trace.
    A new trace called 'Timing Delta' is available under the Driving Inputs sub menu. This trace shows the delta in lap time between two laps. For this to have any data displayed you must have two laps loaded. The delta time is comparing the main lap to the base lap. If the delta is positive that means the main lap is behind the base lap. If the delta is negative that means the main lap is ahead of the base lap.

    Similar to the old GPL "Replay Analyzer". A very useful tool IMO. Thanks Russell!
