I've a bug, not that much of a deal but anyway:
If you don't use the program on full screen, i've mentioned this with uding one side of my screen with the old and the other side the new software, you can't see all the menus.
In the old software, the ones that don't fit in the width of the screen are placed underneath. ;)


Hah, I never tested that. I'll look at it this week.

Seems to install ok.

Open software and some of the screen text is missing for the intial startup and work offline etc. ie

This is due to having the text size set to greater than 100%. I'll have to work out a way to check for that at start up. Ironically enough, the old software required it to be 125% for some PCs, which means this will crop up more than it should.

No matter...


The install now uses the Documents folder, and moves anything from the old location to the new location for you.

Not that I have the first notion what that is lol but it prevents me opening maps from that folder and software wants to shut down

See the end of this message for details on invoking


That's strange, we've not had any errors there. I'll have a look at at that this week.

John


The windows are resizable, but the labels/textboxes don't resize.
See comment about text sizing above.

Also had this error when I opened an old map of mine (haven't tried a "new" map):
changed Fan Control on/off in Sequential/Fan windows, went to exit, tried update and stay open, and update and close, both threw errors as per https://pastebin.com/8N8AE4Aq
Hitting F4 did the same also. It didn't error if I Abandoned changes.

Realtime isn't accessable for me testing offline, which is annoying as I usually set up my screen and save layout ahead of time for tuning, but that's minor.

My laptop screen is 3200x1800 and it scales nicely with the Windows scaling, nice work.

The error should be easy enough to reproduce and fix.

Real Time Mapping isn't available yet, that's why it's greyed out. See first post.

Thanks for the scaling comment. :)

For stevieturbo and Shedley, are you both on Windows 7?
The scaling issue only happens in Windows 7 (and maybe Windows 8, I haven't got a W8 PC to test on right now, I'll create a VM this week).

This doesn't happen on Windows 10.

To fix that, right click on your desktop, and select Screen Resolution.
Near the bottom of the screen is a link titled "Make text and other items larger or smaller".
Make sure you have selected the recommended or default value.

I thought you were having the same problem as stevie, who is on W7.
If it's just the menu, then that's not W7, and is already fixed.

stevieturbo, can you zip up your map folder and email it to me?

ignitionautosport, can you email me the old map that gave the error?

Having just tried some other files Alex, it isnt just when trying to use a different folder, seems it just isnt happy with some of my old S-series files.

The first I tried were from around 2014 before I stopped using DTA, but would be my most recent. I tried with some older files...again got an unhandled exception.

So it's not so much a folder issue, as a file issue ?

Some are opening ok though. Have emailed one that I've tried a few times with no luck.
