    You need a screen dedicated to it for best results, although it will still collect telemetry data in the background. I have a screen mounted above my racing screen for second monitor. If you have a spare display port of any kind you should be able to hook up a screen, or if not try a usb3 to hdmi adapter, they work well for this kind of thing.

    In order for me to do that i'd need a 4th display which I don't have unfortunately. I could just tab out in between a few laps during a qualifying run to check a few things since its too hard to read and drive lol.

    Sadly not any time soon. I can only support the sims that I play (atleast occasionally). And with the spare time I have, and the size of my gaming backlog :D, I just cannot justify a subscription based sim.

    But the project is open source, so if anyone wants to make an IRacing adapter, he is more than welcomed ;)

    I fully understand. I have shied away from iracing due to the cost but recently jumped back in and I'm loving it. The online structure brings so much to the table....

    I wouldn't have a clue how to do such a thing so hopefully someone else can step in....

    I've been working for some weeks now on the new version which will bring another major feauture to the application - the ability to define and run custom championships via the app. :)

    While it might not be so relevant to R3E, which has a pretty decent custom championship system, there are still sims that don't have any (RFactor2, Project Cars 2).

    Also using the custom championship within the app will have the added benefit of being able to change difficulty between sessions, thus rating module can be used more easily.

    SecondMonitor_2019-10-15_18-52-48.png

    In championship creation you'll be able to manually define the calendar, create a random calendar, or use another nice feature included. The ability to use predefined calendar templates, from real series. Just pick a series and year, and the app will then create a calendar with placeholder tracks, which you can then replace with tracks present in sim (the app can also remember the mapping, applying in-sim tracks to templates automatically).

    Included series in initial release: ADAC GT Masters, Audi TT Cup, DRM (DTM predecessor), DTM, Indycar, F1 (various eras), Formula 2, Formula 3 (World Championship, Asian Championship, Americas Championship, Regional European Championship), Formula 4 (ADAC F4, SMP F4, British F4, Japanese F4), IMSA governed series (GT Championship, Porsche GT3 cup), FIA world championship, GT3 (World Challenge), GT4 (European, British GT, GT4 Amercia, GT4 Asia), TCR (WTCR, Asia, Europe), WTCC, Formula Renault, Renault Clio Cup, Porsche Supercup, V8 supercars...

    As I got a question, if there is a way to run the development version, which includes the championship functionality, I've prepared an installer that can be downloaded here:

    https://1drv.ms/u/s!AjZ7Py7hwgdrgaNERN6qZ2eDe5whVQ?e=6m1dYy

    All of the functionality should be already implemented, what is missing is some good documentations, and most of the championship templates. (and testing :D )
    The currently existing documentation:
    Champioship Creation -
    https://gitlab.com/winzarten/SecondMonitor/wikis/Championship-Creation
    Running Championship Event -

    Hi there great app... I have 2 questions for you.
    Can this be run on a separate android tablet ?
    And is it possible to save the results on screen post race, when I leave a raceroom race it resets.

    Regards

    Hey @Winzarten , great app!

    You might have noticed that i am currently building a backend that is capable of storing telemetry / laptime data online. You can find it here: https://www.010102.de

    Probably it makes sense to start a cooperation, where you could submit the telemetry into my backend, so users could view/ compare them online. You could concentrate on your great app and I could do what I can best: backend stuff.

    Drop me a note if its interesting!

    Sorry for the late replies, but IRL has been kinda hectic the last few weeks.

    Only if the separate tablet can be connected as an external monitor. It is from the ground up build as a windows app, and will only run on windows.

    I have been thinking about this, and it should be quite easy to acheive. I'm just afraid what it will break :D But I will give it a try once I'm done with the current version.

    This looks interesting. That is, if we're talking about trivial data, like lap times. That might be easily acheivable.
    That said, it can take a while for me to have time to look into it. But I will definitely throw you a pm once I have some spare time ;)

    Sorry, for the late reply. But could you please rephase that in English? :)

    v6.0 is out
    The only main change is the ability to run custom champinship within the app for most of the supported sims (should be everything outside PCars 1 and F1 2019). I haven't managed to implement all the championship templates, but they will come in later releases. :)

    I just stumbled across this app today and am excited to try it out! But i need to ask a very basic question: how do I install it? I went to gituhub, downloaded the SecondMonitor-master as a zip file, and now I have a folder of of things but no Installer exe? Help! What did I do wrong.
