    I'll look at the pull request tomorrow but I'll only focus on these changes where they potentially impact the existing functionality. I noticed a couple of places where common code has changed so I'll review that stuff and then just sanity check the rf1 specific changes. If it looks good expect an update over the weekend.

    Regarding the duplicate driver name workaround, I need to cogitate on it for a while. Indexing the opponent map by race position seems counterintuitive, but I don't yet understand what you've done - will look at it properly next week.

    The audio subsystem should be reasonably self contained, so shouldn't be too painful to swap. We need to keep an eye on latency and resource usage tho

    Guys, this is amazing. Has now become and essential part of my AMS playtime. Thanks so much.

    Just a heads up, or perhaps you could explain, but last night during a Lancer race with some AI, on the first lap, my Crew Chief told me that "your transmission is F****d, I don't think you'll make it to the end" but there was no transmission damage that I could see going on the HUD or car performance.

    Did I perhaps down shift to quickly or something and some data spiked, causing the message?

    Not a big issue but just thought I'd let you know... surprised me a bit with his salty language, haha love it.

    No worries gongo. I am assuming DynHUD shows correct information regarding engine, transmission and body damage, so hopefully that can lead you in somewhat the right direction.
    Also, hopefully Reiza might heed your calls and lend a hand...
    Otherwise, I am sure we can live with it in the current state. ;) Keep up the good work guys and thanks again.

    Could you possibly tell me which of the game's volume sliders would affect the crewchief plugin please? I have found that on my laptop I can barely hear the voice over the engine, but even if I lower the game sliders I don't seem to be able to lower them enough to hear the voice. It obviously varies from system to system - my game pc is just about ok with it's external speakers, but the laptop just does not allow me to hear the voice. (I don't suppose there's any scope for increasing the max volume on the crewchief slider?)

    The games sliders don't affect crew chief volume - you need to turn down the game volume to get the right balance. The sound player that crew chief uses is already at max volume.

    Gongo - had a look at the pull request. Looks fine but I'd like to insert a 'and is rf1' to that additional else clause in the penalities event (line 260ish). I know this isn't archecturally nice (events should be generic) but I have so little time to regression test with pcars and r3e

    @gongo ive been having a problem where im not being told by the spotter if there are cars near me. i have set a toggle to see if that had any impact but he still wont say anything.

    15:08:59.175 : clear right, carsOnLeftCount 0 carsOnRightCount 0 hasCarLeft False hasCarRight True
    15:09:14.891 : Car left, carsOnLeftCount 1 carsOnRightCount 0 hasCarLeft False hasCarRight False
    The console says it is working but i hear nothing through the game
    Any help is much appreciated :)

    @gongo So i tried all your advise and i still cant get it to work. I tried a 30 car race with me driving. The button is checked and i turned both of the volume sliders to max and still nothing.
    But in the console it still says :
    16:46:22.295 : clear left, carsOnLeftCount 0 carsOnRightCount 1 hasCarLeft True hasCarRight True
    16:46:23.348 : clear right, carsOnLeftCount 0 carsOnRightCount 0 hasCarLeft False hasCarRight True
