Network: New Track Map Performance field displays frames per second.

3.7.2.CoTA

🐞 Sectors: Fix intermittent problem at CoTA where Lap Tm was greater than actual value. Intermittent oddities in CoTA data stream sequencing caused S11 sector times to be incorrectly summed a second time by P1TS, so displayed lap times were sometimes 8-10 seconds too long.
Network: Add Network Troubleshooting button.

3.7.1.CoTA

Leaderboard, Sectors, Flags, Stints: Table settings are now "sticky". Rearranged columns, hidden columns, rows per page, etc. are now automatically saved and restored.

3.7.0.CoTA

P1TS Server Window: Its title bar now displays its IP address, so ipconfig.exe can be avoided.
Leaderboard, Sectors: Add column for tracks (e.g., Sebring, CoTA, Detroit) having a second speed trap (formerly only the last trap was displayed). Also replace generic "Trap" column label with the speed trap's name.
Sectors: Don't consider pit sector times in theoretical or rolling time calculations. This was especially bad at Road Atlanta where pit entry sectors are shorter than the corresponding on-track sectors.
Sectors: Pit-in, pit-out, and pit lane sector times are now in red.

3.6.1.LongBeach

Replay: New Downloaded Replay option.

3.3.1.Test

🐞 Track Map: Fix 3.3.0.Test bug where Hero's lap time was not visible.

3.3.0.Test

🐞 Sectors: Handle previously missing laps resulting from sporadically inconsistent ERMon stream. Also compensate for occasional bugs in ERMon's lap count that caused the incorrect Best lap time to be displayed in the Sector panels, because the incorrect lap was referenced.
🐞 Leaderboard: Handle missing ERMon pit out line crossings that caused the P Ln clock to continue counting.
Track Map: Larger Pit Lane Follow 1 markers.
Start/Finish Crossings: This table is now hidden by default to increase Track Map real estate. Can be viewed via Settings checkbox.
🐞 Any table: Fix table settings (e.g., number of rows) were not remembered after 2 hours.
Version: The second number now adopts IMSA's event numbering convention. Here's how to decode P1TS's new version scheme for 3.3.0.Test:
  • 3 - 3rd year of P1TS
  • 3 - 3rd IMSA event of the year (1-Roar, 2-Daytona, 3-Feb Test)
  • 0 - Event's software release number
  • Test - Human friendly event name

3.1.2.Daytona

🐞 Pit In-Out Stints: Handle unexpected ERMon race start flag sequence (Finish precedes Green start!) causing only a single row to be displayed for 2017 Daytona WSC and CTSC races instead of a row for every pit in-out stint. (This sequence never occurred either during 2017 Daytona's practice/qualifying or any past events - previously, the "blank" flag occurred before race start.) To avoid premature stint processing termination due to odd flag sequences, the stint clocks will continue running past Finish.
Pit In-Out Stints: Add time of day column.
🐞 Track Map: Handle unexpected ERMon switch to transponder numbers instead of car numbers, causing car markers to stop moving (e.g., 2017 Continental Race 2:30pm - 2:50pm).
Track Map: Show Cars on Pit Lane setting allows you to reduce pit lane column noise by filtering the cars displayed.
Track Map: Show cars leaving pit out (e.g. P2 to T3). This pit out sector formerly did not show animated cars.
Track Map: Increase circuit's line width.
Flags: Add time of day column.
🐞 Leaderboard: Populate the empty Trap column. (This was a regression introduced in 2.10.VIR.0.)
🐞 Leaderboard: Once a car leaves pit lane (POP crossing), its Sector and Pit columns no longer has the incorrect (red) pit lane color coding. (The "P Ln" time was correctly (red) color coded.)
Settings: Reduce white space padding for more compact Settings and Dialog boxes.

Pit In-Out Stints: Format times to 0.01 precision. Will make this configurable for Sebring code.

2.3.LONGBEACH.1

The Stints panel has been renamed Pit In-Out Stints to emphasize that the time spans are divided by pit-in and pit-out line crossings. The User Guide has been updated...
IMPORTANT: The simplistic time division employed here, based on pit-in and pit-out, does NOT capture the changing intricacies of IMSA's drive time calculations. Also, while delayed driver plug ins during driver changes may be manually corrected by IMSA, P1TS can only rely on information available in the timing stream. You should have an additional means of calculating drive times.

Sector Gapchart's numeric tables +/- now uses the same visual language as the large grid above it making it easier to determine faster or slower than the hero’s best lap sector.
Sector Gapchart's numeric table for the two cars is now separated with a blank line.

1.1.DAYTONA.0

This is the P1IMSA release deployed at Daytona 2015.
