HI all, Version 4.12 of the Z1 Dashboard software is now available! Highlights of this new version include compatibility with Codemasters F1 2017 and 2016; the addition of a new plugin for Assetto Corsa that allows us to access data on competitors cars so they can show up in track maps and standings screens; the support for multiple LCD screens; and of course new dashboards! Existing users can get the latest version here: http://z1simwheel.com/dashboard/MyDashboard.cfm New users can purchase the Z1 software or get the demo here: http://z1simwheel.com/dashboard/trybuy.cfm The new Z1 Dash. The new Ahead/Behind Dash #2 The new Track Map 10 Dash. Here are the full list of release notes: * Added compatibility with Codemasters F1 2017. * Added compatibility with Codemasters F1 2016. * Added a plugin for Assetto Corsa. This python plugin allows the Z1 Dashboard software to receive information on the other cars in the session so that you can now view them on the track maps just as you can with the other sims. This includes the type of car, the driver's name, their best and last lap times, when they last pitted, etc. The plugin is located in documents/z1dashboard/plugins/assettocorsa. There you will find a folder called Z1Dashboard. It contains the plugin 'Z1Dashboard.py'. Copy the entire folder into Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\assettocorsa\apps\python. (You should end up with the Z1Dashboard folder inside the python folder. And that Z1Dashboard folder should contains a file called 'Z1Dashboard.py' and two other folders called 'lib32' and 'lib64'. * Added a new Standings dashboard (Standings Dash 2). This displays the data in a slightly different format and includes both the driver's fastest lap time and their last lap time. The new Standings 2 Dash. * Added a new Ahead/Behind dashboard (Ahead/Behind Dash 2). This displays the last lap time and fastest lap time for the drivers directly ahead and behind you on the track. In addition you also get deltas to those times from your own last lap and fastest lap. This helps in determining if you are gaining or losing to the car ahead or behind during a race. Note the Ahead/Behind dashboards shows the car right in front or behind you on track regardless of their position in the race. This is different to the Track Map dash #3 which shows the driver ahead/behind you in position. So if you are in 6th place, and there are two cars in between you and 5th place, the Track Map 3# dash will disregard those cars and display the driver in 5th place. Make sure you utilize both of these dashboards to their intended purposes. * Two new track map dashboards are available (#9 and #10). These incorporate the two Ahead/Behind dashboards into the track map style dash. The new Track Map 9 Dash. * Added a new dashboard - the Z1 Dash 1. This incorporates a g-force meter, laps times, and basic car information. * Multiple LCD Screens are now supported, up to a maximum of 6. When you start the Dashboard if a screen is present and not currently being used the instance will display itself on that screen. From that point on it will always look for that same screen when attempting to display. If it can't find that screen in the future, then it will randomly choose from any available display. There is a new option in the Display tab of the settings dialog called 'LCD Serial #'. This displays the serial number of the screen being used for the display. Each screen has a unique serial number. So if you enter a different serial number here it will look for that screen and try to display on it. If you erase this serial number then the Dashboard will randomly choose any available LCD Screen to display upon. * You can now add and remove drivers from the tracked driver list by right clicking on their name in the standings garage screen. This will give you a popup menu with two choices - add driver or remove driver. Select the desired option to add or remove the driver from your tracked driver list. * There is a new option called 'Focus On Me' in the general tab of the settings dialog. This is on by default. This option will keep your name displayed in the Standings dashboard. The first place driver will always be displayed at the top of the standings. Then if this option is on the list may skip down some drivers to ensure that you are visible on the screen. Note while this option is on the up/down arrows have no effect on the standings dashboard. * There is a new Open To option in the Display tab: Full Screen. This is similar to maximize, but provides a second option for times when a specific monitor is desired with a full screen display. * Added brake bias in car adjustment for Assetto Corsa. * Improvements to the compatibility with RaceRoom. * There is an option for the Codemasters sims called 'CM Name'. This is located in the Network tab of the settings dialog. Please enter your name here to have it show up on the list of drivers for Codemasters F1 2017. If you leave this blank then the Dashboard will display the driver name as given from the sim, which will be whichever current F1 driver you selected in the sim. * There is an option for the Codemasters sims called 'CN Timeout'. This is located in the Network tab of the settings dialog. This is the number of seconds the Dashboard or Server will wait after the telemetry is stopped from the sim before disconnecting. The default is 10 seconds. * The font selection on the Notes tab and the Adjustment Font in the Display tab have been updated to a drop down to make it easier to select the desired font. * Updated the Data Logger to allow for car and track names with special characters included in their names. * Various graphical updates to the track map dashboards. * The Z1 Server now includes the options to choose which sims you want to check for. With the growing number of sims supported this allows you to streamline the connection process by having the Server only listen for the sims you are using. * Improved Z1 Server connection error logging to help with connectivity issues. * The Z1 Server can now send buttons inputs to specific Z1 Dashboard instances. Previously the buttons inputs were sent to all instances. In the buttons tab of the Z1 Server's settings dialog there is an option to choose if buttons presses are sent to all instances, or to individual instances. * The Z1 Server now shows which instances as the Z1 Dashboard it is connected to (1-6). * You can now specify where the Z1 Server will save the created telemetry ZOD files. This is done in the General tab of the settings dialog of the Z1 Server.
