    Got the new update last night and oddly it didn't crash once, if it does I'll send the log through, thanks ;-)

    Cool :) There was one thing I found that could definitely cause a semingly random crash, which I fixed. Hope it was that :)

    I'm hard at work on the telemetry viewer, the progress can be seen in this short video.


    I'm hopping to implement the first data graphs in the next few days, from that point the rest of the implementation should be pretty quick.

    Hi, just set this up on a spare monitor, how do I resize the various oncreen elements. Currently I only have 1 line of the timing screen visible and the bottom section with tyre info etc is massive....

    Sadly, that is currently not possible. The top and bottom part are now fixed size, while the rest is filled with the timing grid. This creates this obvious problem on smaller resolution. The reason is that some controls (i.e. the gauges), don't react that well to dynamic resizing. :(

    I will try to make a partial solution to this today, by making timing grid resizable, while having the problematic controls fixed size. This will create the issue that the controls will get hidden by the timing grid because of the resize, but should make the app at least partially usable on smaller resolutions. Sorry for the problems.

    That's a shame, it's on a 1280x720 screen so I'm surprised it's so bad....

    It's the timing screen I'm most bothered with, I could happily lose the temperature gauges for example. Fuel and tyres are obviously quite important though.

    I've reorganized the bottom part a little - swapped the fuel with the dials, so the the dials + pedal are the first to go when the are is resized. I will test it in a few races today to see if there are any weird behaviour, just to be sure.

    I've attached a screenshot with your resolution.

    Currently not, sorry, it is one of the features I was thinking about to implement. It shoudln't be that hard, I just need to prioritize it and find the time.

    Had a go with the latest update today, much better with the resizable sections. One question....would it be possible to make it go full screen so the top bar of the window etc disappears?

    It is certainly something I can investigate, but no promises. The most trivial things usually have some weird catch for some reason ;)

    Hello

    I can install any version since version 2.5.1.57, but it does not start.
    It does not matter if I download them in this forum, or at program start when the update window opens ?

    I Have Win 7 Home Premium and 64 Bit

    Thanks a lot for the log. By a quick investigation I think that the application is currently broken for Windows 7. I should have a fix ready later today :)
