HI, Just getting back into GPL after 10 years away.

I used to have a hot lapping tool, similar to Pribluda but different, but I can't remember its name.
It ran as an overlay, like Pribluda, but gave you a permanent delta to your best lap, all the way round the circuit.

Can anybody remember its name, or have a copy?

Hi Dave.

Are you sure you're thinking of GPL? I've always been interested in hotlapping, TotalRanks etc, and I've been on this forum since 2004, and I don't remember hearing about any GPL utility which can give you a running delta of your best lap while you're driving. If there is one, and I've missed it, I would be interested in hearing about it too!

Hello Dave,

as I red your post I have had an idea:

I have done a small changing on pribluda version in this way:

In my version the current sector times are no longer times, but deltas (current sector time-sector time from the best lap) - except in the first lap.

In the same way the last lap sector times indicates now the same.

There is no sign before the deltas, but
faster times will appears coloured,
slower times will be appears white,
and if the sector time is exactly the same as best lap sector time you see this: --:--.--

If you have driven a new best lap you see at all last lap sectors --:--.--, because the delta is 0.

So I think it's during driving less changing of the subject through comparing and calculating times. So I hope I haven't so many crashes anymore.

You find the pribluda.dll in the unzipped folder:


Best Regards

Posted Image Edit 17.10.: Current sector times includes now the sector times before
;i.E. Delta sector 2 =(current sector1+current sector2) - (sector1+sector2 of the best lap)
So you see without any calculation how fast you are in the current lap.
