View Full Version : Pace Notes in iRacing not linking to track position

I am giving the pace notes function a go at Montreal (Circuit Giles Villenueve) and they don't seem to be detecting the track position (I'm guessing from "distanceRoundTrack" value).

I think they are trying to play once in a lap (I hear the crew chief beep) then silence - I'm not sure if there is a separate volume control for pace notes, when I play then as .wav files through VLC I can hear them clearly.

Heres the .json file contents

"description": "",
"gameEnumName": "IRACING",
"carClassName": "SKIP_BARBER",
"trackName": "montreal",
"entries": [
{
"description": "",
"distanceRoundTrack": 122,

"montreal_SKIP_BARBER_122_1.wav",
"montreal_SKIP_BARBER_122_2.wav",
"montreal_SKIP_BARBER_122_3.wav",
"montreal_SKIP_BARBER_122_4.wav",
"montreal_SKIP_BARBER_122_5.wav",
"montreal_SKIP_BARBER_122_6.wav",
"montreal_SKIP_BARBER_122_7.wav"
],
"fileNames": [
"122_0.wav",
"122_1.wav",
"122_2.wav",
"122_3.wav",
"122_4.wav",
"122_5.wav",
"122_6.wav",
"122_7.wav"
]
}
]
}

I turned on corner names to see if their was any position information about this track - seems that there is. I can hear it playing a single pace note entry not far after the finish line (I guess 122m from it?).

It's still really quiet, not sure if pace notes have a gain/volume. Here's some of the crew chief log.

11:08:47.764 : Playing sounds, events: corners/wall_of_champions
11:08:48.749 : *** Processed corners/wall_of_champions

Looks like there might be a bug with this, are you trying to record the notes from a replay file ?

I recorded the sound whilst watching a replay file, and was then try to play the pace notes in a practice session.

I will give recording some notes whilst driving to see if it has the same effect.

I have tried recording pace notes again at Spa this time whilst driving and it all works fine.

I tried recording pace notes against a replay again, and they all record at the same track position.

One question - Can I manually edit the distances in the .json file, and if I do, do I have to rename the .wav files?

(attached is the recording .json text recording whilst driving)

I gave recording pace notes against a replay file a go this week - and it now works great.

It's much easier to record against a replay I find as I don't have to drive at the same time.

Thanks again for continually improving.
