What's New in Version 4.16?

With each new version of the Dashboard software it gets better and more feature rich, and version 4.16 is no exception! This list highlights some of the changes. For a full list of release notes please see the release notes page.

Project Cars 2 UDP Support
Added support for Project Cars 2 UDP mode. To select this mode you need to select Project Cars 2 UDP in the Z1 Network tab, and make sure the checkbox to the left of the Project Cars combobox is selected. In Project Cars 2 go to the Options section and click on the System box. Set the UDP Protocol Version to Project Cars 2. Set the UDP Frequency to one that works for your system. A setting of 1 sends the data at the highest frequency, and a setting of 9 sends it at the lowest frequency. The lower the settings the better. But too low could mean your network gets overwhelmed and things actually slow down.

Improved Tire Dashboard
The Tire Dashboard has been improved to provide more detail and less clutter with specific information being displayed based on the currently active sim. The Tire Dash will now only display the camber and surface temperature information if the sim provides camber data. This will remove unnecessary data for sims that don't provide it. Tire carcass temperatures will now be displayed i that data is available from the sim.

Note that while tire carcass temperatures are available from iRacing they are only updated when you are in the pits.

New ZOD2 Data Logging Format
The new ZOD2 data logging file format is now available for Assetto Corsa, Race Room, Project Cars, Project Cars 2, and rFactor 2. This new format improves accuracy of lap times and sector times, as well as adding additional data. This is the new default data logging mode.

If you want to use the older ZOD file format you can do so by selecting it form the 'Data Log Mode' drop down located in the General settings tab.

Customizable Warning Levels
Many of the dashboards have warning lights or messages that get displayed if various temperatures or pressures exceed certain values. These levels are now customizable through four text fields in the Car 2 tab under the new 'Warnings' section. Note that each individual dashboard can have different settings for these values. They do not have to be the same for all dashboards on the car.

Pit Limiter Background Flashing
There is a new setting in the Car 1 tab called 'Limiter Flash' which can be set on a car-by-car basis. When set to the 'Pit Limiter' it will cause the background of the dashboard to flash when the pit limiter is engaged. When set the 'Pit Lane' it will cause the background of the dashboard to flash when you are in the pit lane. The color used for the flash is the Pit Limiter Color from the Car 2 tab. Note that the sim has to support the pit limiter or pit lane data for this feature to work.
