Maybe you could write the date of the
last update somewhere on the starting page.
That's a very nice idea, I'll add it to my to-do list.

Also, good ideas are average lap time (as GR-Robbi mentioned where you don't count first lap minus 180 seconds before green lights ), average speed, and graph with 'Checkbox' option on the left side to select or deselect driver, so that you can see more clearly see graph between just two or couple of drivers on your own wish..
I know TTCO is busy now, but if he gets time in the future this updates will be fine, although thss Data Tracker is already great, but still, it would be a nice if we can updated with better ideas.. But I don't know if it will be hard to do that Checkbox option on a graph, so TTCO is the one to answer that
Yes I'm actually pretty busy right now so that's why I still haven't made Robbi's updates, and probably won't very soon. Regarding mentioned Robbi's sugestions, I have made a quick draft of both queries, just to see if it's feasible. I can say that both queries - 1. graph for gaps lap by lap
(similar to positions but with actual time gaps each lap) and 2. average lap/cp times will be made
at some point, but ATM I can't make any "release date" predictions
Regarding your (Cyrex) two ideas:1. average speed
- a neat idea, but during the race I can't actually "get" current speed, not even on checkpoints or lap finish, so for that to work a whole new mini-measuring system would have to be made, for example someone would have to measure lap length "manually", then I'd have to make a script to multiply that by num of laps and divide by finish time (minus one lap and 180 sec)... maybe some day 2. checkboxes for graph "default" selections
- I thought about that quite a few times... The problem is that it would be pretty complicated to do, or to be more precise, very time consuming... I would have to make a block for holding driver checkboxes that would hide/show at the correct times (queries), then load the correct driver list for each race (with a checkbox for each driver) before even displaying the graph (i.e. clicking Show data), then read all that data during graph generation an turining off specific lines...
One thing I can do quite easily is to turn off ALL lines by default. The advantage is - it's easy to do (for me), you get a clean sheet (not a messy graph) to start with, and it eliminates slow line off/on functionality on graphs with many data points, e.g. IndyLegends Race positions graph (or at least I think it would
) - of course, until you turned enough lines on to make it slow again... The potential "bad" side is - it (maybe?) looks silly to get a clean gray background when you "load" a graph... Anyway, any ideas on this? Would it be better if you started off with no data displayed in a graph? You can still turn them all on, just have to click 20+ times
Ooooor (lightbulb over my head), I could show two radio buttons, one with option "off by default", the other one with "on by default". With "off" you would get a clean sheet and could easily look at few drivers that interest you the most (without clicking too much to turn almost all of them off) and with "on" you would get a whole race overview.
That solution is far less complex than no1 (checkboxes), but still enough to require far more time than "default off" which would take a few minutes... Still, I think this one will go to the to-do list
But, once again, the great thing is - whenever the mentioned updates will come to life, you can use them all on the "old" data so nothing is really lost
Thanks again Sm!e and Cyrex for the nice ideas and contribution to the project
