    Just enter some text representing the game you wish to show, (ex. acc, rf2, r3e, assetto corsa, ams). He suggested those to me, so I'm not sure what/how valid text's spellings are recognized :)

    Not sure if this was a Q to my message but if it is then let’s break things down to make it clear and hopefully to shed some light on what’s going on and maybe get a clarification to set the record straight and correct any assumptions i have.
    Qualy: after doing some laps and asking crew chief how much fuel do i need for xx minutes (at the end of qualy session), all is good the data is there.
    Race: before starting the race, there is always no data but i’d assume that there should be some from qualy session(?) but that’s not the case (or am i missing something?) Is there something else that needs enabling for it to work just before the race?
    Having said that before doing the mandatory pit stop, the data is there.
    Thanks in advance

    The fuel consumption data get cleared at the start of the race session so until the app has gathered consumption data during the race, you won't get sensible fuel responses

    Is there any way to store the data from the last session and call upon it during pre race setup? Clear data once race actually starts?

    i can probably make an exception for fuel consumption in some cases, but I need to be careful here theatchanging car and / or track doesn't allow stale consumption data to skew the fuel calculations. I'll look into it

    Perhaps in-race fuel calc could auto reset after 1st lap and then calculate from there? As its is, when using CC to calculate starting fuel you have to remember to ask during qualy.....its not ideal.

    Silvanob, is this the question about your old device and shared memory translation? I've released 2 versions of that app, I don't know what your issue is or how it might be fixed

    Yes it is this prob, but this mornin after looking to all my DL i found a file from you "translator 2.7" so i tried with this and it seems to work again but sometimes it stops for few seconds then it goes again.
    As R3E changed a few things in the last update, thats probably why it generates some bug.
    Here i send you the file "translator 2.7" maybe you can take a look and see if it works good on your side.
    I made it a zip file for to be able to upload here, all you do after DL is to change the extension to ".exe"
    Thanks, hope you can help

    Alright I tried searching before I posted but.

    Is there a known issue with the app when using voice out requests? I was running a racing in my championship and requested a stop with no tires. I get refueled but the tires were changed anyway. Is there a setting that has to be disabled ?

    No know issue there, assuming you in game key bindings for navigating the pit menu match what the app is expecting. If tyres were already selected (highlighted green) in the active pit strategy then they'll be changed unless you give the "box, don't change tyres" command to override that.

    After posting this did find that written in the help section. I had changed them and programmed them all to be on the wheel so I don’t have to reach for my keyboard. I assigned the request to a button near the dpad on my wheel, and the dpad will move through that menu then the button to accept the changes is also on the wheel. I’ll reset to what you have listed in help and try

    I have 4 pitstop strategies.
    1 is change all tires and fuel.
    2. Change fronts only
    3. Change rear only
    And 4 only fuel
    When using your app should I disable leave them active ?

    Is there a list of all available voice commands for Crew Chief in R3E somewhere?

    No just in the help section of the app.

    unfortunately the app can't 'press' buttons on the wheel, it can only press keys. So if you want CC to manage all your pit menu interactions you have to assign keys to the various actions in-game, ensuring these match the expected keys in the app. I recommend just using the default ones here, so it's

    w (menu up)
    a (menu left / decrease)
    s (menu down)
    d (menu right / increase)
    q (menu toggle)
    e (menu select)
    r (request pit)

    once they're assigned you have full control over the pit menu with voice commands and can say stuff like "add fuel, 20 litres", "box, change front tyres only" and "box, hard tyres". The full list of standard commands is in the readme file, with a few special ones in the saved_command_macros.json file (where commands need to employ some additional logic like calculating how much fuel is needed to finish the race.


    For reference, the 'regular' R3E pit menu commands are:

    "pitstop clear tyres" / "pitstop don't change tyres" / "box, clear tyres" / "box, don't change tyres"
    "pitstop change all tyres" / "box, change all tyres"
    "pitstop change front tyres only" / "box, change front tyres only"
    "pitstop change rear tyres only" / "box, change rear tyres only"
    "pitstop fix front aero only" / "box, fix front aero only"
    "pitstop fix rear aero only" / "box, fix rear aero only"
    "pitstop fix all aero" / "box, fix all aero"
    "pitstop don't fix aero" / "box, don't fix aero"
    "pitstop fix suspension" / "box, fix suspension"
    "pitstop don't fix suspension" / "box, don't fix suspension"
    "pitstop serve penalty" / "box, serve penalty"
    "pitstop don't serve penalty" / "box, don't serve penalty"
    "pitstop refuel" / "box, refuel"
    "pitstop don't refuel" / "box, don't refuel"
    "pitstop next tyre compound" / "box, next tyre compound"
    "pitstop hard tyres" / "box, hard tyres"
    "pitstop medium tyres" / "box, medium tyres"
    "pitstop soft tyres" / "box, soft tyres"
    "pitstop prime tyres" / "box, prime tyres" / "pitstop primary tyres" / "box, primary tyres"
    "pitstop option tyres:" / "box, option tyres"
    "pitstop alternate tyres" / "box, alternate tyres"
    "what are the pit actions" / "what's the pitstop plan" (reports the selected actions for the next pitstop)


    The macro-based commands are:

    "request pit" / "box this lap" / "in this lap"
    "cancel request pit" / "cancel pit stop" / "cancel pit request"
    "fuel to the end" / "fuel to the end of the race" (calculates the required fuel and adds it)
    "add fuel, x litres" (where x is > 0 and < 150)
    "next strategy" / "next pit preset"
    "previous strategy" / "previous pit preset"

    Thank you that worked. Appreciate your help.
    I have been using the app for a while now but haven’t used the voice pit commands until now... mainly for spotting, tire temps , how much fuel needed to finish a race. Keep up the great work. It’s a wonderful piece of work :D

    after installing the latest version of CrewCheif I now get this error
    upload_2019-9-2_20-19-43.png

    I downloaded the the file that the ok button redirects you to and ran it.
    It was obviously already installed as it asked if I want to repair it so I repaired it
    That still didn't work so I uninstalled>rebooted>reinstalled microsoft file but i still get this error

    Not sure what to try next!
    I'm running the latest version of Win10
