We have now been using PCL for almost 3 years and with the last bug fix to the random missed laps on phidget using homebuild sensors everything i running smoothely.
However have one big wish for the program - in race setting you are able to set the next race as qualification, but aparently this doesn't have any effect on the race that you are about to run
Wouldn't it be possible to make the following 2 things for PCL:First thing
1. set the time/number of laps for a qualifying session
2. set the lane to be used for qualification - or even better let PCL choose by random choice
3. let all drivers run their qualification - if as a single race based on random selection by PCL - if via championship starting from the bottom (lowest ranking drivers first)
4. from the qualification time make the heat e.g. slowest four to start first - fastest to start last
Only thing the program would also have to take into consideration is when the number of participants does not match number of lanes - here the program should allow the user to decide which heat is to be run for instance with 3 drivers on a 4 lane setup - or even 2-3 heats with only 3 driversSecond thing
We are using the phidget feature to make track-call and pause/restart via buttons connected to the phidget card - making the program much easier to use for newbies
But we are missing one type of restart - which is "restart with countdown" - since the button is already in the program I would think it should be fairly simple to have this as a "buttonfeature" for all phidget users - really hoping for this
If you were able to put in both these features in the program it would just be absolutely perfect.
Looking forward to hearing from you
