Airio LFS Tracker
to this very simple home page of the Airio LFS Tracker. It is a tool
designed to enhance the marvellous online racing simulator
Live for Speed, giving players all sorts
of additional information and options and giving admins more possibilities
in managing the server(s). Airio connects to a specified LFS server InSim
port listening for all data provided there and acts based on these data.
Take a look inside the Features Overview page
to learn a bit more.
Currently you may see Airio running on AirAttack LFS servers, specifically
[AA] Formula BMW, [AA] Rallycross GTI, or [AA] Blackwood
GTI. You'll find all currently running Airio instances and managed servers
on the dynamically updated Servers page. To check
the tool you must download/install LFS, register for online demo usage,
and then connect to one of the mentioned servers.
The Airio documentation is not quite up-to-date, unfortunately. Recently
many new features were added and it is kind of tedious to update descriptions.
Anyway, combining the current manuals with Changelog
should provide you with every info you need. If you look inside the files,
you'll see they are rather lengthy. That is because Airio does not fall
into a category of applications that can be readily understood without reading
a single line of explanation. But I believe the time invested into reading
the available information will soon pay off both to users and to admins
and will help you to realize all the possibilities.
- The user part is made as intuitive as possible, offering
customizing GUI and a help system. Still, some principles are likely
to escape understanding. Examples of these are when personal data are
saved and what do all the timing numbers mean. All this is explained
in detail in User Manual.
- The Airio administration part is explained in detail in
Admin Manual. From that document you will
learn how to setup and configure Airio and manage it using limad and
admin commands. For general users these are rather unimportant concerns,
but for people intending to run Airio on their servers this document
is a must read.
- There is one more document available, the
Full Version Manual describing user and
admin options of Airio with advanced features not included in
the FREE version.
The Airio tracker is currently feature complete and fully tested/debugged.
You should realize however that as in any larger project there may still
be hidden bugs and inconsistencies. The application was officially released
on January 4th, 2009 as announced in this
LFS Forum thread.
Airio is a complex system using just about every available LFS feature
and giving admins and users dozens of configuration options. If you'd like
to get the current version of the tracker, visit the
Downloads page. It would then be nice of you
to write into the forum your experiences with configuring and running the
system – what you liked, what you missed and such.
While I'm ready to give you advices and to try to solve possible troubles,
it would be a good idea to search first for answers in user and admin manuals
(see above). There are many hints on how things work and you should be able
to deduce even matters that may not be explicitly mentioned there.
Developing the Airio LFS tracker took and still takes a lot of time.
If you like the application and would love to see its development go further,
help me to spend more time on it by donating
a few (or more) euros, dollars or pounds. You can then request a new feature
and I will seriously consider implementing it, if that is reasonably possible.
It is also possible to get for sufficient donation the FULL Airio version
offering advanced features that may always be seen on the AirAttack LFS
servers and also elsewhere. The Full Version Manual
explains what these user/admin advanced features and options are. See the
Downloads page for more information about "sufficient
