What's New in Version 2020.3?

With each new version of the Analyzer software it gets better and more feature rich, and version 2020.3 is no exception! This list highlights some of the changes. For a full list of release notes click here.

Extensively Updated Open Lap Dialog
There are now two distinct scrollable windows in the dialog. The top one shows the laps that are located on your system, in other words the laps you have driven. The bottom one shows laps from other drivers that you can download to compare yourself against. You can now resize the dialog by dragging as you would any Windows dialog. Resizing the dialog will adjust the display as appropriate.

You can scroll the windows using the mouse wheel, the scroll bar on the right, or the Up/Down keyboard arrow keys. When using the Up/Down keys if you reach the bottom of the list of the top window, the scrolling will switch to the bottom window. And if you reach the top of the bottom window, the scrolling will continue up the top window. You can also quickly switch between the top and bottom windows using the Tab key.

To sort the laps in either window, click on the desired column header. Each time you click on the column header the order of the sort will be reversed. The local and server windows are sorted independently and can have different sort options.

There are three filter options, all available from within the right click popup menu. When filters are activated a message will be displayed in red text at the top right of each window. The filter options are drivers, cars and dates.

The driver filter sub menu shows the first 20 drivers (alphabetically) as options. If all drivers are selected, then when you select one of these it will deselect all the other drivers. If not all drivers are selected then selecting a driver from the list toggles them on or off. The Show All Drivers menu option displays all the drivers. The Show No drivers option turns off all the drivers.

The 'View Full List of Drivers' option will display a new dialog which shows all the drivers available at the track. You can resize this new dialog as desired. If all drivers do not fit on the window, then you can scroll it using the mouse wheel, or by clicking and dragging on the scroll bar. Next to each driver is a star and a toggle button. Clicking the star will add or remove the driver from your favorite list. Clicking the toggle icon will add/remove the driver from the list of drivers included in the current driver filter.

The Favorite Driver list will display those drivers you have marked as favorites (assuming they have driven a lap in the currently selected track). This list is just a user-definable subset of the main driver list and works in the same way.

The Filter Cars option works in the same way as the Filter Drivers option.

Math Channels and Custom Traces
Thse are now two different items. In previous versions they were combined into one option (Custom Trace). Breaking them out like this allows for more flexibility. A math channel can be used in a custom trace, data tile, scatter plot or histogram.

To create a math channel select the Data Channels->New Math Channel option. You'll then see the dialog allowing you to create your math channel. Each math channel must have a unique name. You can specify the number of decimal places that will be used when displaying the math channel in a Data Tile using the decimal places drop down.

External Data Import Updates
These updates make the import process work better across various files by providing more flexibility to what is expected for timing and distance data, as well as data frequency. This will make the import process able to more easily import data from various sources.

Column mappings will be saved by column names when possible. Previously they were always saved by column position. This allows you to use the same mappings in files that have the column names in different orders. To use this functionality you have to tell the import dialog which row contains the column names. Control-click on the appropriate row to do this.

Data Tiles
These are not new, but have some new functionality in this version. A Data Tile lets you display the value of a data channel or math channel in a larger format than is available in a trace. You can display one by selecting the Data Channels->Add Data Tile option. The newly displayed tile will default to the Throttle data channel. To select a different data channel for that tile, right click on the tile and select the desired data channel from the popup. All default data channels, as well as any math channel will be available here. In addition the bottom of the popup provides option to maximize/restore/hide the tile, as well as creating or editing math channels.

12 New Data Channels
Tire load, lateral tire force, longitudinal tire force, tire contact patch sliding percentage, suspension force, front ride height, rear ride height, front wing height, drag, front downforce, rear downforce, oil level. These data channels are available to use when importing external data as well.
