- dTris now handles Ski Cross in conjunction with Measures.
- The “New Race” drop down from the “File” now displays the folder area and waits for the User to indicate what folder they want the New Race file created in. The file name then must be entered at the bottom of the display.
- Now when starting the second run dTris request whether the User wishes to make a copy of the file before continuing on with the creation of the second run. This gives the users a backup in case something goes wrong with the layout of the second run.
- Once in the second run the Chng Lmts F3 key has some new Display Board functions. The User can request the Display to show the sum of Run 1 and Run 2 while displaying the running time. The User can request the Display to show the BESTOF results. The running time shows only Run 2 but when the Racer Crosses the Finish the best time is Displayed – either Run 1’s or Run 2’s time.
- F6 Function on the setup screen now contains the CODEX Number along with each categories Bib numbers.
- Log has been enhanced to describe in more detail when False Finish occur and are corrected.
- When preparing the output file with the times for Measures or when times are sent directly to Measures on the same computer dTris now checks whether all Racers in the Category have times, if they do not dTris asks whether to mark them as DNS or DNQ or do nothing.
- dTris has had a new timing function added which is call “SHFT F” and Move Finish. The purpose of this new function is a follows. If a finish pulse is generated which finishes the Racer on course then the Racer that was on course actually finishes which finishes the Racer who is still on course and should remain on course. Clicking on the “SHFT F” Function or actually holding down the Shift key and typing an “F”or simply dragging the last racer in the finish on top of the second last Racer dTris will apply the finish pulse of the last Racer to the second last racer in the finish. It will then place the last racer in the finish back on course and await that Racer to finish properly. Please note dTris will not complete this until you have approved the action.
- Added capability to use REC13.xxxx Codexes for Recreational Races ( Non Point Races )
- dTris was changed so that one can run dTris twice on the same computer with two different comm ports with two channels for one version and two different channels on the second version. One must tell each copy of dTris to ignore the pulses associated with the other copy of dTris. This allows you to run parallel races with any Category association that one might wish to have One version of dTris is the blue course the other version of dTris is the red course.
