Crew Chief Beta

    I have not used CC but it looks like a great addition to ACC. I was noticing some issues on the forum about drivers getting DQed for driving past their time limit. So I was curious if there might be data available to have CC radio the driver that "You need to pit for a driver change" if you are getting close to exceeding your time limit?

    I love ACC for so many reasons but a spotter adds so much realism that I intend to go out and get CC right away. It's nice that we get the "Pit opening" message in the game but a warning about driver changes would be great too. Regardless if you can do this in CC or not, thanks so much for your efforts with adding a more in depth spotter.

    Jim, after seeing this topic from last week on i decided to give your app a try.

    Besides the incidental wrong status message im so happy with the Crew Chief, especially during longer races. Its like a little chip on your shoulder watching along as u go.
    Thank u for bringing this to ACC and i wil donate as well.
    These things are indespensible for a pro Race sim and im glad to have it here, keep up the good job!

    I've got some issues since the lasts ACC updates (up to 1.0.10) : sometimes there is no spotter during race, or there is no one calling for the green flag at the start...
    Anyone with the sames problems ?

    Hmm... not noticed anything here, but I've been using my own work-in-progress branch that uses a bit more of the ACC data (more penalty data and driver stint warnings). Maybe there's something else changed that I've not noticed?

    If anyone wants to try my WIP stuff, there's a beta here:

    http://crewchief.isnais.de/CrewChiefV4-4.9.9.6_beta.msi

    I've not been able to test much because if the usual VR issues - this beta adds more penalty logic and driver stint time warnings. Feedback would be much appreciated :)

    I am honestly surprised that there are still do many Sim racers discovering this for the first time. I have been using it for race room, rf2, PC, pc2, automobilista for years now. Can't race without it, love the sweary messages too.

    I'm still not getting any chat during practise sessions. Is this normal?

    Yeah, it's not wired up for free practice sessions. There's some quirk of the data that the app interprets as 'session ended' so it never makes any calls. I'll have a closer look, it's probably fixable

    Is the link in the OP the most up to date one? I'm going trying this over the weekend.

    I never go to the track without Crewchief.
    Amazing app, I've been using it since its AC implementation.
    It gives false information occasionally, regarding my position but otherwise it is fantastic.

    I tried the beta version on a MP server.
    Except position when crossing the line (sometimes saying I was first other giving my actual position) everything went fine.

    have we got call outs for penalties and invalid laps working yet? really only thing missing for me on this amazing app :)

    In my last try, "invalid lap" during qualy was working, but not "warnings for track limit". Don't know about penalties.

    Thanks for great app! But, can i make russian voice? Nope?

    You can make a Russian voice if you want, but have a look in the C:\Users\{USERNAME}\AppData\Local\CrewChiefV4\sounds\voice\ folder first to see how many sounds there are - it's a lot of work

  18. Like always first things first: Your work is incredible. I'm amazed how many different driver names CC is knowing and how much immersion just a voice is able to add.

    Just a small feedback to your latest version (MP only):
    Everything seems to work fine. Messages for pit exit, distances to drivers, names, current position, time left, fuel left, spotter etc.
    Just the penalties (can only speak for track limits during qualy) seems to work 50:50. I cutted the track on purpose to test it and got 4 messages from the Kunos "sleepyhead" and jut 2 of CC.

    All in all every new version is a step in the right direction to replace the ingame pit engineer completely function wise. Immersion wise your CC is without any comparison.

    Thank You :)

    It's pretty amazing how much crew chief adds to immersion. The only thing out of place I noticed was he kept telling me to go into the pits. I was doing the career at zolder, 40 minutes. Within the first two laps he says the pits are open and he keeps mentioning opening pits and going to the box throughout the race.

    Even so, it's brilliant. I've turned off the HUD and just listen to crew chief now.
