    One of the great unique features of the Z1 Analyzer is Track Edges. This lets you see where the edges of the track are when viewing your driving line. A driving line shown in empty space just doesn't help much. But once you add the left and right edges of the track you can really see where you are on the lap.

    We've updated the list of available laps to show which tracks have pre-defined track edge files. When you view a lap from one of these tracks the track edges will automatically be downloaded from our servers so you can easily and properly view the driving line on your Z1 Analyzer.

    The new Track Edge icon shown on our website indicates pre-defined track edges:

    See what is available here: Z1 Analyzer | Compare Yourself To Other Drivers

    In addition to the track edges there are over 27,000 laps that you can compare yourself against!

    Version 1.17 of the Z1 Analyzer is now available! As always we've got some great updates and improvements to this industry leading telemetry analysis software.

    Some highlights are:
    Commercial users can now print out the traces, track map, and analysis screens.
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    Commercial and Track users can now load laps from tracks with differing names. This makes it much easier to compare laps from the real world with sim laps.
    [​IMG]

    The minimum/maximum/average values of a trace are now displayed at the right side of the trace's title bar.
    You can choose the have the trace display where the max/min/average values occur.

    [​IMG]

    Custom traces can now have specific colors for each individual custom trace created.
    [​IMG]

    There is now a pause button in the track map. This lets you pause playback of the lap, keeping the current time round the lap displayed.
    [​IMG]

    Existing users can get the update here: Z1 Dashboard | My Dashboard

    New users can get the demo here: Z1 Dashboard

    Here is the full list of release notes:
    * The maximum, minimum and average values that occur within a trace are now displayed on the right end of the trace's title header. Note if you are using the old style title headers (where they appear on the left side of the trace) then the max/min/average values are not displayed due to room constraints.

    * There is an option to mark the points on the trace graphs where the maximum, minimum and average values occur. Select the Display->Show Extents option, or type the CTRL+E key combination to toggle this feature on or off. When on you will see the maximum value marked by a vertical line with a circle at the top. The minimum value is marked by a vertical line with a circle at the bottom. The average value is marked by a horizontal line with a circle at both ends. A maximum/minimum marker will be displayed every time the graph hits the appropriate value. If a graph reaches a maximum or minimum value and then stays at that value, the appropriate marker will only be displayed at the beginning of that section of graph. The graph's value will have to change, either up or down, before another maximum or minimum marker is displayed.

    Note that the brake pressure trace only shows the maximum value. Also note that traces that show percentage displays do not show the maximum or minimum extents on the trace. This includes the throttle, raw throttle, brake, raw brake, clutch and tire wear traces.

    * Printing - this is a new commercial feature. Select File->Print, or use the keyboard shortcut, CTRL+P to display the print dialog. This allows you to print the currently displayed traces and/or any of the Analysis screens. After ticking the checkboxes of what you'd like to print, click the 'Print' button to display the standard Windows print dialog. The traces will print in the same width to height ratio as they are displayed on screen. So if your traces take up more vertical room on screen, they will also do so on the printed page. The track map will use as much of a page as possible. Each of the Analysis screens will take up an entire page. The Overview Analysis screen may take up multiple pages if needed.

    The header of each page is a graphic called 'PrintHeader'. This png file is located in documents/z1analyzer/images. You can replace it with any other file you like to customize the header of each page. The suggested dimensions of this file are 6,000 pixels wide by 760 pixels high. The image will be scaled to fit the printer page as necessary.

    There is a new tab in the settings dialog called 'Print Colors'. This tab lets you customize the colors used to print the various traces. These colors are independent from the ones used when displaying the traces on screen. Note that unlike the screen colors, which are saved with each layout and can therefore differ by layout, there is only one set of printed colors that is always used when printing information.

    Note due to using the industry standard CTRL+P keyboard combination to display the print dialog, the keyboard shortcuts for playing, pausing and stopping play back of a lap have been changed to CTRL+M, CTRL+ALT+M, and CTRL+SHIFT+_M respectively.

    * Various improvements to how the Select Lap dialog works and responds to inputs.

    * The Track List drop down in the Select Lap dialog can now be scrolled using the mouse wheel.

    * The Column Data Point Mapping drop downs in the Import External Data dialog can now be scrolled using the mouse wheel.

    * Custom traces can now have unique colors for each trace and line. They default to the ones specified in the settings Screen Color tab. But you can change them in the Edit Trace Dialog. Click on the color swatch next to the appropriate line for the trace. This will display a color chooser dialog. Select the color you want and click OK. You can do this for each of the formula lines. Once done click Save Trace. This feature is intended to make the user of multiple custom traces each to visually distinguish from one another. Note that if you change the default colors for custom traces (in the settings Screen Color tab) the Analyzer will update the colors used in the custom traces if that custom trace still uses the default color. If you have chosend a specific color for a custom trace then that color will no longer be updated when you change the default colors.

    * A PI button has been added to the New Trace Dialog as an option for inclusion in your trace formulas. PI is evaluated to 3.14159265358979323846.

    * There is now a pause button that can be used when playing back laps. This pause function can be activated by clicking on the pause button icon above the track map or in the Analysis screens, or by choosing Pause Lap from the Laps menu, or by using the CTRL-ALT-P key combination. The pause option toggles the playback of a lap. You can un-pause the lap by either selecting Pause again, or by selecting Play. When pause is engaged the lap time displayed in the Lap Data window and in the status bar at the bottom of the Analyzer will be where you currently are on the lap.

    The Stop button will now completely stop playing the lap and reset the play back speed to full speed (if it had been reduced to a slower pace). It will also display the full lap time of the lap in the Lap Data time display and in the status bar at the bottom of the Analyzer.

    * The current debug mode, if one is selected, will be displayed at the bottom right of the status bar. This will alert you to any currently active debug modes. Certain debug modes can substantially slow down the operation of the application, and are only intended to be turned on if you are trying to debug certain issues. At all other times the debug mode should be turned off.

    * The option to automatically run the lap scan at startup has been changed. if this option is on, which it is by default, the Analyzer will ask if you'd like to scan for new laps upon startup. This gives you the option of not always having to run the lap scan on startup when this option is turned on.

    * Our track edge database is now available to be used with laps that are created from External Data. The system will scan our database to look for a match based on the name of the track being similar to what you entered as the name of the track. If a match is found then that set of track edges will be downloaded. If multiple matches are found then you will be given the option of which track edges you'd like to download. This is useful for tracks that have multiple configurations. Note for this to work you must have imported GPS data for your lap.

    * Track and Commercial license holders now have the option to compare laps from tracks with different names. This is intended to make it easier to compare real world laps with laps done in the sim. Previously the track names had to be an exact match for them to be compared. This is no longer the case. Now if you try to open a lap for comparison and that lap has a different track name from the currently loaded main or base lap you will see a message dialog asking you if you want to open the lap to compare it, even though the track name is different. Clicking 'Yes' will open the lap without removing the existing lap. Clicking 'No' will clear the existing lap(s) before loading the new one. For example you may have a main lap loaded from real life data with a track name of 'Lime Rock', and want to compare it to a sim lap where the track is called 'Lime Rock Full'. In this case you'd click the Yes option in the new message dialog. Note this new option will let you compare laps from completely different tracks (for example Lime Rock and Road America). While that is possible we don't advise it, as the data won't line up or be useful.

    One of the great things about the Z1 Analyzer is its ability to tell you how you are doing on your lap. Unlike many other telemetry analysis tools which just show you fancy graphics and require a PhD in physics to figure what is happening, the Z1 Analyzer tells you in plain English how to improve your lap times. And in the end that is what it is all about - improving your lap times.

    The Analysis Overview screen shows you multiple aspects of your lap on one easy to read display.

    Continuing with the theme of how the Z1 Analyzer helps you improve, here is the Brake Points Analysis screen. This shows you the track map, and highlights where you are braking for each turn.

    [​IMG]

    Click on the orange dots and you'll get a detailed explanation of the brake zone and how you compare to another loaded lap.

    This lets you easily see where you can gain time on your lap compared to a faster lap.

    We've released version 1.17.2 of the Z1 Analyzer. This includes three bug fixes from version 1.17.0.

    * Fixed a bug which could cause the Analyzer to crash if you had two laps open and one of them could not be found.

    * Fixed a bug which could cause the Analyzer not to display the final sector time in a downloaded lap in the Analysis screens.

    * Fixed a bug which prevented the Analyzer from scanning laps form Assetto Corsa Competizione and Codemasters F1 2019.

    Make sure you update to this latest version!

    There are currently 165 dashboards available with the Z1 Dashboard software. 18 of those are what we call Specialty dashboards. These are various dashboards that help you with your race.

    Three of these dashboards display basic telemetry information.

    Telemetry Dash 1 shows the current data on most aspects of the car, including speed, gear, RPM, throttle, brake, tire and suspension information, and a friction circle.
    [​IMG]

    Telemetry Dashes 2 and 3 display graphs of the recent data on RPM, speed, suspension, steering, throttle and brakes.
    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    These three dashboards offer a simple way to see telemetry data. And if you want more detail you can use one of the best telemetry applications the Z1 Analyzer for full telemetry analysis, as it comes with the Z1 Dashboard.

    You can see all the Specialty dashboards here: Z1 Sim Dashboard | Specialty Dashboards

    Version 1.18 of the Z1 Analyzer is now available!

    There are many improvements in this version, but the big one is the addition of video. You can now open videos of your laps and have them play back in sync with the telemetry. You can sync the video and the telemetry so that whenever you move to a different point in the video the telemetry will move to that same point, and vise-versa.
    [​IMG]

    We've also added corner overlays, making it easier to see where the corners are in your traces. As with everything in the Analyzer these overlays are completely customizable.
    [​IMG]

    The current time and distance of the cursor is now displayed in the status bar at the bottom of the Analyzer's display. New to this version is the ability to step through the telemetry using the left/right arrow keys.
    [​IMG]

    And for track, educational or commercial users you can now adjust the beacon position of the base lap in one of three ways: through a dialog, or keyboard arrows, or using the mouse.
    [​IMG]

    Remember the Z1 Analyzer comes with the Z1 Dashboard and Z1 Server!

    Download the demo today: Z1 Dashboard

    Existing users can get the update here: Z1 Dashboard | My Dashboard

    Here is the full list of release notes:
    * 64 Bit - The Analyzer is now a 64 bit application. This was necessary for the video option below.

    * VIDEO - The Z1 Analyzer now supports opening and playing back mp4 and avi video files. To display the video window go to Display->Show Video. The video window is exactly like any other window in the Analyzer. You can drag it and resize it as you like.

    To open a video click on the folder icon at the bottom of the video window.

    To play a video click on the play icon at the bottom of the video window. Just like the playback of telemetry data, each time you click the play button the playback speed will be reduced by half, down to 1/16 speed. At that point clicking it again resumes full playback speed.

    To pause a video click on the pause icon at the bottom of the video window

    To stop playback of a video click on the stop icon at the bottom of the video window. Clicking the stop button also resets playback speed to full speed.

    You can step forward and backwards through the video frame by frame by using the forward/backward step icons. Each click of one of these icons will advance/rewind the video by one frame.

    You can jump to the start or end of the video by using the 'move to beginning' and 'move to end' buttons.

    You can fast-forward or rewind the video by using the fast-forward or rewind buttons.

    * There is a sync button in the video button bar. This looks like two arrows pointing at each other. When this button is selected it will turn green. When it is selected if you play, pause of stop the telemetry or video then the other will also play, pause or stop.

    * There is a flag button in the video button bar. This is used to specify where the start/finish line is for the lap. You should use the video controls to move the video so that the car is right at the start/finish line. Then click this button. Doing so will tell the Analyzer where the start/finish line is for this video and this lap. Once this has been done, the Analyzer will keep the video and telemetry in the same position on the lap when you click to a specific location on a trace or the track map.

    * You can now step forward/backward through the telemetry using the right/left arrow keys. Each time you press one of the keys you'll move forward or backward by one data point in the lap. This makes it easier to control exactly where you are in the lap.

    * The Analyzer will now use both steering inputs and lateral g-forces to determine the corners of a track. The g-force threshold is 0.6G to determine the start of a corner. Note if the track has track edges defined then those will be used to determine corners instead of steering or g-forces.

    * There is now an option to show corners overlayed on the traces. This option is located under Display->Show Corner Overlays. You can choose if you want the overlays to be filled on the trace, or just an outline by ticking the 'Fill Corner Overlay' option in the settings General tab. You can choose the colors used to draw the left and right hand corners in the Screen Colors and Print Colors under the Track Map section. You can have different colors for screen display and printing purposes.

    * There is now an option to shift the base lap forwards or backwards as compared to the main lap. This is intended to let you line up two different laps that have used different beacon positions. This would occur most often in real world imported laps. In sim laps it is highly unlikely you would need this feature. The option is available under the Laps->Shift Laps menu option. In the dialog you can then enter the distance you want to move the base lap in meters, centimeters or feet. A positive number shifts the lap to the right, and a negative number shifts it to the left.

    You can also shift the lap forward or backward by one data point by using the Shift+Right/Left Arrow keyboard combination, or by choosing the Laps->Shift Forward or Laps->Shift Backward menu options.

    You can also use the mouse to shift the lap forward or backward. Hold the Shift key down and left click on a trace and drag the mouse. This will shift the base lap trace in sync with the mouse movement.

    Note shifting a lap does not permanently change its beacon position. It only moves it while the lap is currently open.

    This feature requires a track license or higher.

    * The status bar now displays the current time and distance at the cursor position. This data is show as "cursor: 0:24.817 | 3358.3 feet". If you have distances set to metric then you'll see the distances in meters. This information is based on the main lap and not the base lap.

    * Added six (6) new traces: Yaw, Pitch, Roll, Yaw Rate, Pitch Rate and Roll Rate. These are available for all users under 'Chassis' in the trace popup menu for those sims that support this data. These traces are also available for use with custom traces. For track and commercial users they are also available for imported data. And for commercial users they are available in the 'Limits' settings of the commercial settings tab.

    * Updates to how saved layouts are handled with respect to resizing them if the window size differs from when they were saved, and if more traces have been added to the Analyzer since the layout was created. Note these changes only effect layouts saved in this version and forward.

    * When running the demo you can now choose between the four different license levels (standard, track, educational or commercial). This lets you try out each license level to determine which is right for you. As before, the demo will last 15 minutes regardless of the license level selected. After the 15 minutes is over you will have to restart the Analyzer to get another 15 minutes.

    * There is a new license level - educational. This is intended for educational institutions. For details on this license level and what it offers please visit Z1 | Analyzer License Comparison

    As of version 1.18, the Z1 Analyzer lets you play back videos. You can sync these videos with the telemetry or play them back independently. You can also jump around in the video by clicking anywhere on a trace or track map. It is as easy as that!



    Video is a great way for you to see exactly where you are placing your car in a turn, and what the car is doing at any moment. Make sure you are using the latest version of the Analyzer to get the most from your racing or track day.

    We've just released version 1.18.2 of the Z1 Analyzer. This fixes a bug in version 1.18 with the lap shifting feature where the base lap could 'shrink' if it was moved back and forth multiple times.

    Version 2020.1 of the Z1 Analyzer is now available. Just like the Dashboard we have updated the numbering sequence - so 2020.1

    The big change in this version is that we have rewritten the entire Analyzer to use Direct2D instead of cairo. This update in the graphics department means we can utilize the GPU when rendering, provide much smoother lines and fonts, get better performance, especially when scrolling around the various track maps in the analysis screens. It also opens up a lot of doors for us for future development concepts that we would have been unable to do properly with the cairo graphics engine.

    The Z1 Analyzer 2020.1 is crisper and faster than before!
    [​IMG]

    The brake points analysis screen makes it easier to see which lap is which with the red and blue track edges.
    [​IMG]

    The driving line analysis screen gets the same Direct2D treatment - better performance and a smoother, crisper display
    [​IMG]

    The Turn Analysis screen has been updated for better performance and a more integrated feel.
    [​IMG]

    We've also added quite a lot of YouTube video links in the Analyzer to provide help on how the various feature work - so make sure you check those out.

    We'd also like to thank the entire beta test team - they did a tireless job ensuring the version is as good as it is!

    You can download the demo here: Z1 Dashboard

    Existing users can get the update here: Z1 Dashboard | My Dashboard

    Here is the full list of release notes:
    * Direct2D - The entire Analyzer graphics engine has been rewritten using Direct2D. This replaces the older cairo graphics engine. This change will allow for improved performance of the Analyzer, and more efficient usage of the GPU when rendering. In addition it will open the door for many future improvements that would not have been possible using the old cairo rendering engine.

    * Graphical improvements - the rewrite process for Direct2D allowed us to update the display of many of the components to bring a more cohesive look to the entire Analyzer.

    * Added many links to our YouTube videos to help explain how to use, and get the most out of, the Z1 Analyzer.

    * When importing external data, we have removed the Track length text field. The length of the track will now always be calculated using the data contained within the imported file. This is because allowing the user to enter the track length opened up the possibility of accidentally entering the wrong track length. An incorrect track length would result in all sorts of issues when attempting to view the data and/or compare it to other laps.

    * The version numbering of the Analyzer has been changed. Starting with this version the numbering will be year based making this version 2020.1. This is to bring all three applications onto the same numbering sequence and to make it easier to determine if you have the most recent version of the software.

    * The Z1 Analyzer will now notify you of new versions with an overview of the highlights of the new version. This notification will be displayed on two consecutive start ups once the update is available.

    * Windows 7 is no longer officially supported. While the Z1 Analyzer can still be installed on Windows 7 and run on it, there may be issues that arise as Windows 7 is now EOL.

    * Note for this release the Print functionality has been disabled. It will be reinstated soon.

    We've released version 2020.1.2 of the Z1 Analyzer.

    This fixes a bug that could cause the Analyzer to display a white screen and/or crash during startup.

    We have released version 2020.1.3 of the Z1 Analyzer. This fixes two issues:

    * Bug fix: When opening a lap when you already had two laps open, the Analyzer would sometimes close both of the currently open laps, leaving you with just the newly opened lap. This made it so you could not compare two laps. This has been fixed.

    * In the Select Lap dialog the Analyzer will now select the Sim name and Track name in the drop downs so they are set to the most recently selected sim/track names from the last time you had the Select lap dialog open.

    We've released version 2020.1.6 of the Z1 Analyzer.

    This update introduces the ability to connect to live data streams from remote Z1 users. This lets you do driving training remotely, or helping with running teams remotely using the Z1 Analyzer. The streaming service will be free for all Z1 users as long as there are stay-at-home orders in place.

    Here are the full list of release notes for the Z1 Analyzer:
    * The Z1 analyzer can now connect over the internet to a Data Stream set up by the Z1 Server, in a similar fashion to what the Z1 Dashboard can do. This was originally going to be a feature added in a future version of the Analyzer, but with everything going on at the moment we have fast-tracked this feature and added in to this minor update. The data streaming service will be freely available to all Z1 users for as long as the stay-at-home orders are in place.

    This feature allows the user of the Z1 Analyzer to remotely view and monitor the data of a driver anywhere in the world. It is similar to the live telemetry feature of the Analyzer.

    To set this up, the driver launches the Z1 Server and creates their data stream by going to the settings dialog of the Z1 Server, selecting the Internet tab, and filling out the appropriate information. Note for the purposes of the Z1 Analyzer you do not need to include the location data. That would just add extra overhead that is not necessary. So leave that option unchecked.

    Once the driver has started their data stream, the user of the Z1 Analyzer can connect to it. To do so, they go to the Z1 Analyzer's File menu and select the Connect To Stream option. This will display a dialog showing the available data streams. Double click on the one you want to join, entering a password if necessary. Once you are connected the Z1 Analyzer will be in live telemetry mode. You can then use the Z1 Analyzer as you normally would for other live telemetry connections. To end the connection select the Stop Live Telemetry option from the File menu.

    While you are connected to a data stream you will see your average ping displayed underneath the name of the sim in the Lap Data window.

    * Updates the Analyzer to be compatible with version 2020.1.4 of the Z1 Server.
