    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,
    "recordingNames": [
    "montreal_SKIP_BARBER_122_0.wav",
    "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.

    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)
