LiveTiming, as the name suggests, displays live race information from iRacing sessions into a website, so everyone can follow a race event without having an iRacing membership. You can see how it looks like in a browser window in the picture below:
For the software to work, you need to upload the webpage template to a host of your choice, so other people can have access to it. After that you need to join a racing session (player or spectator) and launch LiveTiming server so it starts collecting the session data and streaming to the webpage. At the moment it supports two modes: PHP mode and Webserver mode. In PHP mode, LiveTiming uploads the data file into your webserver and the PHP script included in the template is responsible for parsing it. In Webserver mode, LT starts it’s own webserver and the webpage must be configured to collect the data from your own computer. For more details about how to setup the software, open the “Readme.txt” file included in the package. It contains detailed information about how to setup both modes.
I have plans on implementing a MySQL version too, so you can keep track of session and hopefully solve some issues that the software current have, specially when working in the Webserver mode.
- Webserver mode is quite buggy
- Fastest lap time is not working properly
iRacing FFB was coded in Visual C# 2010, so you need the .NET Framework 4.0 for it to work.
