    There are also pitmenu info in sharedsmemory and I'm almost sure it's there to allow CC to modify pit options more reliably.

    More setup info and better / more reliable interaction with the pit menu are both planned. It's quite a lot of work and I'm busy with life stuff at the moment, so it'll take some time

    Well more functions are always nice. Another App developer said, he was able to adapt his app in half an hour on those changes.

    It would be really cool, if CC would still run the same with the patch and potentially cool new stuff can come in the future.
    But @mr_belowski , I hear you. For a fun project this must be a lot of work.

    Adapting the app to work with the shared memory is quick and easy, but writing new features to make full use of the new data is a separate matter :)

    Second that. For all the racegames I have, mr_belowski is always my spotter. I really miss him when I forget to start the app. The game sounds silent without his screaming about my bad result after a race. :D

    Yes exactly. I don't want to be too demanding, since I really appreciate the work you put in.
    But would it be possible, to do this, as you say, quick and easy adaption and release it. It would be a bit sad, if it would not work until you implemented all the fancy new stuff.

    I'm sure it's already done long time ago and waiting for the game to update. If Jim released the update now it would break CC with current shared memory.

    @Georg Ortner his Stream crewchief worked, i try the New Overlay also today and started crewchief no calls.

    Am I right with my oppinion that was a betaBuild what George used in Stream and we get an Update soon?

    We Need to wait only on a AutoUpdate or Need then download a New Version, because of the New Shared-Memory-APIs @mr_belowski?

    Does it affect the Framerate?

    Not really - we spent ages making it as lightweight as we could. It uses a fair bit of ram - half a gig or so, but it's cpu use is very low

    A feature I've quite liked in the past is 'read corners' where CrewChief tells you the names of corners - it's great for learning tracks.

    In the last update (or so) it seems to have stopped working (both in R3E and AC). CrewChief responds to the request with silence (rather than something like 'can't hear you') and doesn't read them out any more.

    It's still on the list of CrewChief 'commands' so I'm wondering if something broke it?

    (It'd also be good if CC would keep reading corners until told to stop rather than stopping at end of lap as it used to. Minor thing though.)

    EDIT - fixed now - thank you
