  • Trackmate 9.61

    I got an e-mail from Trackmate a few days ago with a link to the latest version. I downloaded 9.61 and installed it, but I have not had a chance to try it out.

    Thanks Rich. I haven't received anything. Is there a changelog you can post here?

      I have it installed on both of my tracks and has worked very well no matter how I have abused, er, used the track call button. Rev, 9.6.1 is currently available on the TrackMate web site.

        The e-mail included a direct link to the download, otherwise go here: http://www.trackmateracing.com/shop/...-software.html
        The software is free, but you have to order it, once you do that you will get a link in your mail. The program comes zipped, once you have downloaded it you will have to unzip and install it. If you already have an older version of Trackmate installed all of your custom settings will get copied over, so the new version will be ready to go.

          I did try the software yesterday, not having to configure everything from scratch is a real bonus. I ran a dummy race with five drivers and hit the track call button with 3 seconds to go at the end of each heat to test for the 5 second glitch, but I had no problems with that. The glitch only happens rarely, but it can spoil a race when it does. Since it is a rare occurrence it would probably take many more test races to be sure that the problem is gone for good. We have also had problems with track calls getting prematurely cancelled if the button is held down too long. For me that problem still exists. My track has the old serial interface interface unit along with a serial to USB adapter, which may be the problem. As long as I remember to just tap the track call button or use the computer keyboard there is no problem. I can also use a track call penalty delay.
          I have been tempted to get the new USB interface unit, however track calls are only an issue if you are racing and I only do two races a year.
          I need to look over the software more carefully. If I recall correctly there are less sub menus in the setup and there is a lot more data that can be displayed after a race or practice session is done. Some data can be saved automatically as a text file, I think that data can be saved as Excel files, but that does not happen automatically. I do a lot of tire testing and it can be useful to review older test sessions.

            Richard, my oval track uses what I believe to be a Gen 2 interface board with a serial to USB converter. The road course uses the most recent interface (Gen 3?) and is USB direct. Both interfaces work well. I'm thinking of changing the oval track from dead strips to IR sensors. If I do that I will go with the most recent interface board too.

              I've checked the TrackMate site and am unable to locate what is new, updated or fixed within this update. I've even referred to the original email notification for v9.61 and it neither mentions anything about new, updated or fixed issues. I find this strange, perhaps there was only very minor fixes.

              edit:
              I have downloaded and installed it, unfortunately I am waiting for my track modules to be replaced... and it's killing me might have to head to garage and setup the main modules so I can play and tinker

                This was on the Trackmate site:

                L Hot key to select Lap race
                Fixed bug from v9.60 for 2 or 3 lane tracks, was reporting faulty sensor

                Fixed:RoundRobin Lap Heats

                Fixed: Count down timer
                Lag time: now .001 second resolution

                I recall once getting a faulty sensor message when I booted up an older version of the program, but it still worked OK. My track has dead strips.
                Trackmate has a download site just for downloading Beta trial versions of the program. If you have some time on your hands you can download, install and test them when they appear. It would be a good idea to report how that worked along with details about your computer operating system, etc. to Daniel at Trackmate. Otherwise it is better to just go for a new version that is being shipped with a complete system.

                  Been using this latest release with zero real issues. The only issues that are arising is the lag times on countdown for race start and track call restart, it is random audio where 5, 4, 3, 2, 1, GO between 1 and GO could be another 1 to 2 second delay, other times the race will start, countdown is nothing then it will be 3, 2, 1, GO or 2, 1, GO even had a few GO (no audio countdown happening at all)

                  As I said very minor issue but would be great if the countdown worked correctly from start 5, 4, 3, 2, 1 to GO with no audio lag. I've made a few adjustments to the UI and will check them this week at the race.

                  Other than this audio lag, all good.

                  issue resolved and now I know what this is. Thanks everyone for the assist.

                    I am running 961 (June 2020) on a 2019 RCA tablet with Win 10 updated today. I have the USB interface with USB cable direct to the comp. In the past I have had it start up with no sound but a restart cured that when it happened. Today in Practice I get twenty to 40 ish laps (always a random lap count and time on the clock) when it stops counting. I get an error window that says "Error 8021 (Internal error retrieving device control block for the port) in procedure protocol_GetData of Class Module cisProtocol3" The box has the normal OK button and the X in the upper RH corner. Clicking on those just causes the box to flash and clicking on any other control produces no result . I have to restart the computer and in doing so force quit the program. Has anyone else had this issue or found a solution to the problem?

                      I just saw your problem today, have you tried contacting Daniel directly? Possibly the program got corrupted somehow either during the download or when it was installed. You could try uninstalling the program and deleting the download from your drive. You would then have to download and install a fresh copy.

                        This highlights one of the three major flaws in Trackmate which is poor error handling. Second is there is no easy way to recover or resume a race when the program crashes and lastly there is no way to enter track sections. HOPRA is forcing the use of Slottrack for Nats which I'm not really a fan of. I really wish Trackmate would address these 3 issues to bring it up to the same level as other programs out there.

                          Trackmate does not always resolve ties correctly, being able to add sections would fix that. Once in a while if there is a track call close to the end of a heat you will not be able to rotate to the next heat. The latest versions of Trackmate may have corrected that, but there is a fix included in this article: https://drive.google.com/file/d/0BzL...ew?usp=sharing
                          Trackmate can autosave results as a text file. Limited data can also be saved as an Excel file, but you have to do that manually at the end of a race. For most races HOCOC subtracts a lap for each off. We have to use pre-printed forms to record the laps and the offs are subtracted from each racers total. I have written an Excel spreadsheet in the same format as the one that Trackmate uses, except that it has extra columns for offs, sections and the corrected totals. I copy the results from the Trackmate Excel spread sheet and paste them into the expanded spread sheet. After the offs and sections are entered I can do a sort to get the correct results.

                            Regardless of how it resolves the finishing order, track sections is still a useful piece of information to have. You can edit laps through the Trackmate UI.
