This utility was originally intended to edit lp files, but I didn't get around to adding many editing features. It's not bad for viewing lp files, and probably ok for setting flags.

It's useful (amongst other things) for seeing what flags Papy used where on the original tracks, which is a good guideline for adding them for new tracks.

P.S. Lots of changes since this first post, is actually useful for editing now. See later posts for additional info.

Your being way to modest Nigel,

This is a great tool!  :clap2:

I've already had much help from it using it for Montjuich.

Anyway a big thank you for making the effort!  :thumbup:

I've stumbled on this error on a couple of tracks.... :oops:

Any idea what's causing this? :think:

Probably a non-standard wall type. However I thought I'd posted a version that would handle that. If you can tell me which tracks this is happening on I'll get it fixed.

Your comment made me have a look on which version i had. I downloaded the one you posted here and there were no error's anymore. I got my version from Paul and it appears to be an early one.

Anyway all is well now  :thumbup:

Here's the new version, with a whole new way of making lp files. Many thanks to Martin Huiskes who not only tested it exhaustively and made many helpful suggestions which have been incorporated, but also produced the tutorial helpfile which makes sense of the arcane world of GPL AI.

Nigel

P.S. Attachment removed, current version now available from first post.

hey Nige, i've never tempted to toy with AI except to race them, is this tool for dummies? or do you need some idea of whats involved? i wouldn't want to mess with files unless its pain free :)

i see you said it comes with a tutorial, but i just wondered how difficult it might be for someone like me.
thx

I'd like to say it's pain free, but I'd be lying. AIEdit doesn't even really make it easier to do, but I think it does make it much easier to do well. But if you still think you might be interested taking a look at the tutorial would be a good place to start.

Nigel and Martin,

the tutorial alone is a piece of gold!

That's normally an indication there's something wrong with the starting grid/pit stalls in the track.ini file.

If you have checked those values (and other track.ini values for that matter) and they seem to be right then i wouldn't know what's causing it. :confused:

For those using Aiedit to make some proper ai files i made a small tool to make life a bit easier.
It can create an offset of 1.7mtrs(+ and -) in a race file so you can have a base file for passing lines much quicker. It is still a bit rudimental so should you have a problem let me know.

Once you have a proper race.lp file created open it with LPedit and create a race.txt.
Run my tool LPoffset and it will create a pass1.txt & pass2.txt.
Those passing text files can be converted back into lp files with LPedit.

Now you should be able to make a pass line much quicker.
Load the new lp files in Aiedit, generate a lcv file and change wherever the passing lines cross the min max lines. Let Aiedit generate a new lp file of the changed lcv.

Backup stuff before you replace any lp file!

Get LPoffset at my website..
