RaceCapture app 2.12.0 – next generation analog gauges!

It’s a Thanksgiving Miracle! We’ve released our next generation analog gauges and you can start playing with them today.

Beautiful, photo-realistic gauges

With our super flexible analog gauge editor, you can design your own beautiful gauges and the dashboards that contain them.

Get crazy!

You can also design any crazy or fun gauge you’d like – let your imagination run wild!

Simple and effective gauges

Want simple, high contrast gauges you can read at a glance? You can still create gauges that match our original design.

Save, share, and remix gauges from other racers.

Super Customizable

The new analog gauges has a ton of customizable options, with a handy preview area.

A bunch of fixes too

A 2.11.2 bugfix release was in the works, but we just ended up rolling 2.11.2 into the 2.12.0 release. Here are the highlights:

Reset SessionTime to 0 for lap recalculator to improve video + data synchronization

If you’re using the video+data triggering, the session time for the current session really needs to start at 0, but the current RaceCapture firmware does not reset it to 0. Setting it to 0 allows for proper video+data synchronization.

While we need to fix it in the firmware, we’ve updated the lap recalculator to reset the session time to 0 so current data logs can be fixed.

Video playback improvements

We’ve made the video playback more robust in cases where the video does not match the length of the logfile.

Pit stop timer formatting fix

If you were running the pit stop timer on a device with a more narrow aspect ratio, the timer value for the pit stop timer was truncated, showing a confusing value. This has been fixed.

Improve File Load/Save on certain Android versions

We saw some problems loading / saving files on Android 10; this should now be fixed.

More fixes!

See the changelog for a list of all improvements and fixes.

Available on all platforms. Seriously.

The RaceCapture app runs basically everywhere. If you’re on mobile, it probably auto-updated to the latest version!
