Download: version 19.1
Add support for extended time-of-day settings (sunrise, sunset, noon).
Add minimum license required under race info.
Again lots of changes under the hood with the way default (online) settings are handled.
Lots of things changed this update under the hood, it is recommended to delete the cars, forums, tracks, and series ini files from the data directory to have 'clean' files.
Schedules are now forced from the online data, so the app is always up-to-date. It is also no longer needed to manually activate a new season.
More data is now included in the online JSON, and can no longer be edited from the app. If you want these added contact me.
Custom data which has not been edited from the default values will now be overwritten from the online ini files if there are any changes. Set the 'Always save data in INI files as custom values' option to disable this feature.
VRS data is now retrieved automatically when copying the body text, a VRS datapack id needs to be added to the relevant cars.
Fuel usage must now be set in the schedule section, not in the car section.
Fuel data is now stored in a separate file, which is also used for determining fuel usage for a new season.
iRacing data is now scraped separately and the app then retrieves it from my website, which is a lot faster. Because of this, logging in to iRacing is no longer needed.
