03 - VBOX Simulator Configuration

The following options are configurable from the VBOX Sim Pack software application 'VBOX Simulator'.

 

LapTimer COM Port

The computer should assign a specific COM port to the VBOX LapTimer. This COM port will need to be selected from the drop-down menu, shown below. Once it has been selected, click ‘Open'.

Auto Start Line

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

Please note, the start finish detection process can take up to 3 laps to complete.

Screen Capture

Ticking 'Screen Capture' will enable the VBOX Simulator’s built in screen capture function. Be aware, using this method will require a lot more resources from the CPU.

If there are multiple screens, please ensure to select the centre screen from the Screen drop down menu.

Quality settings are available for screen capture. If your computer is struggling for performance, try using a lower quality setting.

Video Capture Device

Ticking 'Video Capture Device' will enable the VBOX Simulator software to use the supplied external video capture card. If there are multiple supported devices, these will appear in a drop down menu.

Video Alignment

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.
