03 - VBOX Sim Pack Software

VBOX Sim Software can be found on the supplied SD card, follow the instructions below to configure the software for use with VBOX Sim Pack.

The top area of the software displays the current status of a supported game/simulator, including the name of the track the vehicle is currently on and the data rate of the telemetry being transmitted.


The full user guide for the software is available here.

 

VBOX LapTimer

Once you have connected the VBOX LapTimer to your computer as per instructions here, the computer should assign a specific COM port to the unit. This COM port will need to be selected from the drop-down menu, shown below. Once it has been selected, click ‘Open'.

The Auto start line option is selected by default and automatically detects the start/finish location from the game. Once the VBOX Sim software has completed the start/finish detection process, the start/finish location is then transmitted to VBOX LapTimer for predictive laptiming.

Video Offset

Factors such as computer performance may have an effect on the synchronisation of data and video, therefore an offset in milliseconds can be applied if required. Simply type in the required value or use the up and down arrows.
