Want to be a reporter?
If you'd like to apply for reporter role, just drop a mail to me (freeleo__freemail__hu or private message here).
What Weekly needs
• full name of your league and its abbreviation
• fps you use
• start time of qual
• league timezone (GMT+/-)
• title of your championship/s (if any)
• list of your races with track names
• number of laps and qual time per events
• title or car restriction of your races (including mod info)
• or a link where I can find all of these info
When I get these stuff I insert them into the database and assign you to the league as reporter. A few of these lines can be edited already by reporters, and you may also add a short promo text on Leagues page. I plan to give more admission later. We are still in testing mode and by default all results are unofficial on Weekly. Later you will have the option to set Weekly as your official results site.
What you need
Martin Granberg's latest GPL Replay Analyser. It's the 7.9.1 beta2. Please double-check if you have this version installed. It still lacks F2 and CA mod support, so those reports will need a bit of workaround.
Server replay or your own replay which was saved after race session ended in GPL.
How to report
Open one lap of the replay in GPLRA then click "Reports"/"Complete report (all above)". This will generate a TXT file which should be named like "LEAGUE YYYY-MM-DD TRACK MOD.txt" – for example "Groundhog 2015-11-08 Monza 1967.txt".
Then visit the Race info page and look for Upload results link. This opens a panel where you can upload the report file. If the upload is successful you should see a plain white page with the table of results.
During this process Weekly code reads out all necessary data from the report file, and checks driver names too. All mod related characters (like 65, GT, etc.) is cut from the names. Drivers may use funny player name alias/es, but with real names the news and the results look better
For F2 and CA races you should mail me the report file (or one lap of replay) and the list of drivers' cars.
