    In the Westwood livestream I have watched the practice for a longer time than the others.
    So I saw as many times the focus was on slow driving people: Drivers that leave the pits or drivers in the first slow lap out of the pits.
    I think now the practice should be much better.
    In the versions before version 8a in all cases the focus changes in the moment when a car passes an other. Now the focus doesn't change in practice (except two drivers leaves the pit at the same time) and it doesn't change in race in case of overlapping.
    It means: Before an overlapping monouvre the focus will be set before the overlapping to the "overlapper"(the faster driver) and stays after the overlapping at the faster driver.
    Only when the two cars are in the same racelap the focus will changing in the moment of passing.

    By the way I have increased the "discrimination factor" from the last version a bit.

    Since some races I was asking myself why the director sets the focus at myself when I was overlapped from Andre' or anyone else. Usually in case of overlappings the focus should be set at the fast driver and stay on it if he has passed the slower driver.
    Now - after Rouen - I have had a look at the code again...and at last I found the bug.
    So I have made v9 of the patch.

    And why I was at developing I have implemented a suggestion from André. In the last lap will be tv1 view in generally.
    Furthermore - to bring more variety in the streams - now every 8th lap is in tv1 view.

    All in all it means the first, 9th, (17th, 25th*) and the last lap is in tv1 view.

    * if the race is long enough

    This was exciting news, Olaf!

    Great job!

    I will download and test the new version before the next race.

    Just a thought! Would it be better to have the tv1 view set to a percentage of the completed laps instead of every ninth?
    Let’s say at 25%, 50%, and 75% laps completed.
    Then we will get this more than once also for the longer tracks.

    I thought you don't like much tv1 view, because it seems you use value 41 for middle distance. So most time we have onboard view. So I was afraid to bring more tv view in the streams.
    Now it come in mind that I can make it adjustable. Quote from readme for specialists:


    With the seventh sequence you can determinate when you have tv1 view in generally (default is 06):
    06 = tv1 view in the first, second, 9th, 10th, 17th, 18th...and son on...and in the last lap
    07 = tv1 view in the first, 9th, 17th ...and son on...and in the last lap
    03 = tv1 view in the first, 5th, 9th, 13th, 17th, 21th...and son on...and in the last lap
    01 = tv1 view in the first, 3th, 5th, 7th, 9th, 11th, 13th, 15th...and son on...and in the last lap
    04 = tv1 view in the first, second, 3th, 4th, 9th, 10th, 11th, 12th...and son on...and in the last lap
    My favourite is 06. It's now the default value.

    By the way I should mention: In the other laps we have not all the time onboard view. In the other laps the normal algorhythm works like before. Only in the listed laps we have under all circumstances tv1 view.

    This sounds great Olaf. The amount of on board is not so much due to personal preference as its about the slight stutter in the image that gets more noticeable in tv view contra on board view. Especially going sideways. Its an unavoidable lag due to external connections so thats why we have gone with more on board. I like the tv view personally.

    One thing we have thought about is to do a re stream with the server replay after the live event is done. If we had a rpy director and prib version that worked more or less the same offline as online we could restream it and it would be in even better quality and have a much better flow to it.

    Thanks Olaf,

    This looks great. Now we have the option to select different profiles for different tracks.

    No way to make the prib displays visible in (saved) replays.

    For me the quality of the tv1 view is acceptable.
    How many pictures per second have the streams? 30?
