I don't know what's going on. During a race if a track call is activated, and the the race is restarted, all the pace cars change ID to the controller that restarted the race. IE. if controller # 3 retarts the race all the pace cars will become ID # 3. what am i doing wrong please help. thanks and love the program

It's possible that Pc Lap Counter have some problem with firmware 1.09 (I have not yet tested the firmware 1.09) , i will make a test this weekend.

PS:
It's better to answer in the forum and not by email Wink

PostSubject: Same issue   6/3/2012, 00:39

We had the exact same issue this past weekend with firmware 1.09. We had upgraded from .85 to 1.09 because of lap counting errors and noticed the exact same problem as described by THESLOTCARGUY. The user initiating the track call would have all cars on track reprogrammed to their controller. We downgraded to 1.07 but continued to have the same problem. We ultimately installed 1.06 which corrected the problem.

I noticed that the release notes for 1.07 indicate:

Quote :

New Features:
Support for Car ID and digital/analog mode switch commands in SNC protocol

Could this be the issue?
We had many instances of missed laps with the stock firmware. What is the suggested firmware version?

Thanks!

I tested with firmware 1.07 and no problem, i installed firmware 1.09 and have the same problem.
Probably that Pc Lap Counter send a command which is now considered as "change car ID" by the firmware 1.09, i will contact andy ASAP , probably that i will have to change Pc Lap Counter, stay tuned...

ok guys , i fixed the problem in the beta of version 5.19, you can download it at www.pclapcounter.be
For your information version 5.19 is a beta but only for oXigen (for other systems it is OK).

In the SSDA6 interface of Pc Lap Counter you should see version 1.1.3 like here:
