The start/finish wizard allows the user to define any desired points on their driven circuit. If the circuit the logged data is from is included in the Racelogic track map database, then the circuit outline should appear with the start line defined when the file is loaded.
Specific split points may need to be defined by the user - if they have already been loaded into the scene setup loaded into a Video VBOX unit, then they will be embedded in the data file and will appear automatically when loaded.
When a circuit from the database is detected, the name of the circuit and the number of laps will appear within the wizard. If the circuit is unknown, lap and sector numbers will appear when they have been set.
When the points have been set, clicking 'Yes' under the 'Continue to data analysis' section will cause the new points to be used in the session window. Selecting the 'Save track in file' option will save the circuit layout and split points into the VBO data file so they will automatically load whenever the specific data file is re-loaded. Note that DBN files from Drift Box or Performance Box units do not allow this option.
Selecting 'Back' will cancel any changes.
Saving / Loading Start and Split Files
Start and split files can be loaded or saved from within the Start/Finish Wizard.
Selecting the 'Splits' menu option allows you to:
- Save out defined points (both .SPL files for VBOX and .DSF files for DriftBox can be saved)
- Load previously used points
- Clear all the points shown on the map image
- Clear only the split points shown on the map image
