    Further update. Just did another race and no lap times.:(
    I did a restart at one point (forgot to turn on my wheel). I have no idea whether that would affect it or not?
    I have attached console text if that helps.
    As always, very much appreciate everything! :D

    Well, so laps are printed only when CC detected session as Finished. I looked at the log, and during first race there were 9 laps completed, but then CC went immediately to Green phase again of the new Race, without previous race "Finished". There might be a bug where we don't finish R3E race session in some situation, but I am not seeing it here. How did you start the second race?

    Also note, if you restart Chief, all lap stats are lost. But I don't think this is the case here, it simply seems that for some reason CC can't detect race as being over.

    That's odd.

    Here's what happened - I set up the race as normal, went in and just as the race was starting (lights not even out yet) I realised my wheel was not turned on at the power outlet, so I hit restart which delayed things just long enough for the wheel to initialise.

    I then did a full ten lap race, for which I have a results file showing all 10 laps were completed (and I also have a full replay file). [NB this was technically the 'second' race]

    I ended the session as normal by clicking continue as it takes you through the results screens and then ended the session as normal.

    My gut feel is there is a bug (or at least a fussiness about how you exit the session??), although I agree I haven't provided the evidence for it as yet. Over the next few days I'll keep a very careful note of every step I take and see if I can spot what makes it work and what makes it not work.

    Thanks again for your help. I'll post again if I find any consistent predictors of 'printing' vs 'not printing' the lap times.

    You could also capture a repro trace, that way we could see what exactly is going on. Is it 2 race event?

    I've done the repro trace and the file is available here: https://we.tl/t-d5lZgwnJaT

    For the record, I just repeated the earlier 10 lap race (with no restarts to confound anything) and reproduced the "error" - i.e. no lap times.

    After race completed: I clicked continue (the only option) 3 times [going through results screen, results screen, podium screen]. This took me to the Single Player screen with the option to click Back. I did so and was then at the main screen:

    20180909172043_1.jpg 20180909172318_1.jpg

    All normal I suspect. Results file was created and I've included it in the zip.

    Big thank you again for having a look at this. Love my stats!

    Thanks, I'll have a look soon, downloaded the trace. Really appreciate clear repro instructions. Also, I'll look into adding more detailed stats to the session laps printout.

    No i am not using nAudio and yes i mean the pitlane sounds, but since some update lately (i posted this in june), this issue seems to be cured. If that start again i will send you the console output.

    Keep the good work ;)
    Thanks

    Hi there ;)
    Was wondering if, on AC, the spotter tells us about penalties when using the Pit Limiter Penalty App ???
    Thanx for response :)

    eh?

    FYI, the console no longer scrolls when the app is active (it was consuming CPU cycles). It scrolls to the bottom automatically when you press 'stop'. This is intentional

    Just a general question: I've noticed the app is able to read out the surname of drivers when in multiplayer races, how is it doing this? Does every individual name have to be recorded? Brilliant software by the way, I can't drive without it now.

    Yes every name has to be recorded by jim, you can also request to your own name added.

    Everything the app says is lovingly handcrafted by me, fuelled by caffeine, recorded when I should have been working or playing games. I think it's about 7000 opponent driver names, and it must be 10000+ personalisation sounds

    Wow that's dedication!! Have we paid a licence for the software or not? I can't even remember.... If not, you should add a donate button, I'd gladly send you some beer (coffee) money. It's a fantastic piece of software and adds load to the game.

    Threre’s a donate button in the bottom left corner of the app when you load it up if I’m not mistaken.

    I'll have a look! One of those things you see every day but never notice maybe!
