    I'm planning on making a MoTeC I2 file export from the shared memory.

    As the .ld file format is not public available, i did some investigation on the sample files to be able to generate my own files. So far im able to create my own files and read them in the latest version of the MoTeC I2 application.

    But ....

    From what i understand, SimBin had a license agreement with MoTeC for supporting it in GTR2 and some other games. While searching for information about the file format, i ran into a topic on the MoTeC forums saying that the plugin to generate motec files for some other game is not 100% legal :(

    So is it legal and allowed to create such tool and put it available for download?

    In the days of rF1 there were a lot of people distributing pirated copies of proprietary telemetry analysis tools along with the data acquisition plugin.
    The problem isn't with the file format.
