    Ok, this took waaaay longer that I expected, but v0.9 is finally ready.
    Added:
    Sector Times - Finally this app also tracks sectors times.
    Driver Laps Details - Double clicking on the drivers name will pop-up a new window with the drivers laps and sector times.

    Great addition. Is there any way to have the app save lap times after the session is over ? After a multi session race is over I lose all the timing data.. as you exit the race... I'd like to be able to compare my times to the other drivers.
    Thanks again

    That's actually a great idea.
    What form do you think would be best? I was thinking about an excel xlsx file, with each driver having it's own page, filled with all the lap + sector times. Plus one page for the session result.

    Not sure having a single page for each driver would be best imho as it would take alot of time trying to compare everyone. The layout is pretty good as is . I usually just need a quick glance at the timing to see where improvements are needed ; I just can't do this during a race as I'm a little busy. :D

    Small update: I'm busy implementing the reporting functionality.
    This is the template I'm working with : https://1drv.ms/x/s!AjZ7Py7hwgdrgYFf4ZdMr6H7tbxtwQ
    In the end it will be 3 pages:
    1. General Information - Name - Position - Best Lap/Sectors
    2. Detailed Laps informations - All laps + Sectors for all drivers, ordered by finishing position
    3. (Not available in initial release) - Detailed Lap information for players, containing also car status information - tyre temps, tyre degradation, fuel onboard.. etc.
    In options window it will be possible to specify the directory where the reports should be stored, and the maximum reports stored (so you don't end up with 100s of files after few weeks/months ;) ). It will be also possible to set for which session you want a stored report - Practice/Qualy/WarmUp/Race + to set for which session you would like the report auto opened by your default xlsx viewer.

    I'm hoping to finnish the implementation in a week or two. :)

    Thanks for the kind words. :)

    Letting me know is the best way to get this fixed. I need to update the r3e config file the names are pulled from (as r3e only provides the car ID) everytime a new car is released.
    I new version should be ready this weekend, containig both new car names and report creation. :)

    Hi. I hope you can help me. I can not for the life of me get your app to pick up in Project cars 2. I have the game working with other apps, but, this app just says 'Not connected' in the bottom left corner, and I can't figure out how to connect it.

    What am I missing?

    Can you please check the name of the project cars 2 executable? That might be one of the things I got wrong and prevent the app to identify that pc2 is running.
    Sadly I cannot really test pc2 myself, because I had to refund it because it was causing severe issues with my 770GTX (which I will hopefuly replace this year).

    No need to exuse. I was able to verify that I use the correct excecutable name. The last thing you can check is that if you have realy pcars shared memory enabled. It should be somewhere in the options (I cannot look, as I don't have the game).

    Other than that, there is not much else that can be done until I get a new GPU and rebuy pcars2

    TBH, I didn't even knew r3e has a spectator mode :D Thanks for letting me know. I will try to fix issues with the spectator mode shortly. Having a session without a player is not something the app can handle right now :/
