rFactor Cut Detection – Released

rFactor Cut Detection – Released

Following a community request, Knarf has put together a tool that automaticly monitors corner-cutting during online rFactor races.

After you created a so-called cut-file using rFactor, the tool runs on the server and will automatically report all cuts. Further info from the creator can be found in this RSC topic.

    Yet another very useful tool from Knarf. Thanks Knarf!

    Hope to see a release to the other simbin titles.
    Because it still happens that the man on pole is there because of cutting a chicane.

    Does this work automactically on all tracks? If it works good, it’s very needed.

    No use to me personally, but for leagues and stuff like that, this utility must be invaluable. Nice work.
    I imagine this is going to save so much time for league owners when checking laps.
    How was it done before ? With watching replays ?

    No, you have to launch the Mapcreator and drive 2 laps very carefully around the track.

    Yes, I have done this countless times and it is boring as hell. Great tool! (if it works πŸ™‚ )

    @ScHiRoCk : I don’t have any game of Simbin but I don’t think they support the data acquisition plugin so it just won’t work.

    @Howie : Like mee explained you need to create cutfiles. Some cutfiles are allready included in the tool (Brands Hatch, Monza, Brno, Curitiba, Donington, Zolder, Imola, Laguna Seca, Mid Ohio, Silverstone, Nurburgring and Vanport). I also created a tutorial today on how to set out good files. The tutorial is for Curitiba and is included in the download of the package now (a pdf, and a replay file). So if you want to look at it redownload the program and have a look).
    In the beginning of the tool it worked automicly using the AIW files of the track, but this gave mostly bad results so this option was removed.

    @stabiz: the tool does work very good imo. We have been using it for a year. I just never released it until I saw a specific question on RSC about the subject. The work for admins has been greatly reduced and because our drivers know we have this tool and no single cut is unseen they drive MUCH more correct than at the beginning of the tool. So lately we almost have nothing to check anymore. We even only use the tool for 1 in 5 races anymore cause everyone has stopped cutting (and we actually stopped checking cuts alltogether for those 4 other races).
