At the local club we are seeking to change our current track software to yours.

http://ourworld.compuserve.com/homepages/eastcote/control.htm

Scalex has the following problems :

  • It was created in MSDOS (in 1998 no updates since) and is not compatible with the latest printers, multiple screen displays featured in Win98 onwards.
  • The database when it becomes full it crashes frequently when trying to start a race meeting.
  • Names stored within the database cannot be sorted in any fashion.
  • When names are deleted the rows in the database are not shifted up and the race track records are not deleted with them.
  • If using less than 6 lanes for a racing session and the end the total race time per person is incorrectly calculated.


I have been attempting to try and get our existing and tailor made (to work with scalex) to work with PC Lap counter

On Scalex all that was required to set up the lights and and track sensors was to simply type in the Parrellel port number that the device was attached to so 632 for instance and it would work.
We have 6 lane infrared sensors, light indicators to show whether a sensor has been tripped.
There are 10 red lights that come on 2 at a time for the countdown when all lit the turn off to indicate the race has begun.
We also have the capability to have engine breaking on the track.

Would you have to update your software for it to work with these sensors?

No Pc Lap Counter will not work with the Scalex hardware, so a update of Pc lap Counter is needed but i will not do because the hardware is not available on the market and people can't make it themselves and also because that hardware is not soo much used.

This track sensor system that is used, is at many UK scalextric clubs - I'm trying to find the contact details of the person who makes it for everyone.

If I can find him it might be worth your while speaking to him.

Could earn you some extra money.

Would be great if the track hardware could be reused. But I see what your saying.

Sorry but Scalex hardware realy don't interest me.
Maybe you can use Phidget interface and connect your sensor to a 0/16/16 interface kit which is realy good.
More information here http://www.pclapcounter.be/phidget_interface.html
Sure Richard Danielan can help you because he is very good in electronic.

Would you mind if I had a go at writing a dll plugin for getting PC Lap counter to work with Richards custom scalex hardware?
