    Yeah, looking at the code I've put a 20 second delay for the 'push now' messages. This is clearly daft so I'll take it out. I'm not going to increment the version number for this but I'll replace 1.9.7 with another cut

    I had a very tiny little one:

    When it announce the gap increase/decrease from front/back car : If you overtake or being overtaked it may not be aware of it.

    For example: I was 2nd @2" from the 1st. The 3rd overtake me and at the same time I had the message: (approx) "the gap between front drop to 0.1sec. Come on you can take it!"

    Maybe could you add some delay between this kind of message and one from the spotter. If there's a spotter message ("hold your line", etc ), there's no point for a gap message right after.

    Just remembered one more thing.
    When exiting the pits I always get the "car behind you, be careful when joining him on track" (or something like that)
    But I get this even if no car approaching on the track, only cars thats near are behind me in the pits.

    Is it possible to set this only to fast approaching cars on the finishing straight?

    Little question about the tire temperature messages:
    How do you determinate that temperature are good ?

    It seems that the range is pretty wide, I have a "tire temperature are looking good" from 80° to 100°
    BTW, best tire temperature is not the same on all cars. for example GTR2 run best around 95° and when WTCC are more around 85° for what I experimented.

    That's a good point. Unfortunately I can't know what car the player is driving - the information isn't in the shared memory block. Because of this I've just had to guess what "good" and "hot" tyre temps might be. When the player's car is added to the memory block I'll be able to have a set of parameters per car for things like tyre temps

    Had the same yesterday after tying your app for the 1st time. Btw it's geat :)
    I was in 5th postition 0.5s behind the guy in front of me. 3rd Position was 10 seconds ahead. I overtook the guy in front of me and a few seconds later the engineer said "Your gap has increased".

    Hello Mr. Belowski I saw you working on a new app.
    I found the old app really great.
    I personally do not understand the new app and find the installation too complicated.
    Also I think it's good when the spotter tells me everything and I have to press any buttons. :)
    I had no problems with the spotter in the first App.
    Now you have to press buttons in the new app. :(
    Work on the old app now you no longer?
    I find that a pity or is it no longer possible to improve the old app further for technical reasons?
    Also, I find it a pity that only Win64Bit users can use the new app. There are still enough 32bit users. Or is that not possible Mr. Belowski.?

    The old app will be replaced with the new app. The new app will (when it's ready) work in exactly the same way as the old app so you won't lose anything - the new additions are all optional functionality. At least, that's the idea. If you *want* to talk to your crew chief and ask him something, you can. But you don't have to - he'll still tell you stuff just like in the old app.

    The new app won't (when I sort it all out) require any additional installation tasks - just run the .exe and click the "Start application" button. I'll keep you guys informed.

    I'll have it all working soon :)

    Guys, I'm reaching a point now where I'd like to work exclusively on version 2. As I've said in my version 2 1st post (now edited to make it clearer), the current V2 *should* work just like the old v 1.9.x, including on 32bit systems, but it'd be a great help if someone can confirm this (I'm 64bit only).

    All the v2 new goodies (speech recognition and button stuff) are optional - it can be run just like the old version with no mic attached or speech stuff installed

    It recognizes the Accuforce and I'm able to map a wheel button now. :)
    Lunch is on me today mate.
    Thanks for all your time and effort.

    Glad to hear it works, and thanks for your generosity :)


    Oh, and I've now moved all my efforts to V2 - there'll be no more updates to V1.9 (at least, that's the plan ;))

    The spotter is the part of the app which gives the "car left" / "car right". This can be turned off separately from the rest of the app. In the app's Properties screen look for a property called "enable_spotter" and untick the box. This will disable the "car left" / "car right" messages

    Thx,

    Great!!!

    Voice comunication souds great and realistic.
    Feels like real DTM driver.
    If I can add sugestion:
    Is it possible to add chief sounds in english but with German, Italian, French or scandinavian acccent like mechanics in DTM or F1, etc.
    I know it is little bit too much but You know that theres a lot teams from Grermany, Italy, France etc.

    Excelant work,
