All the latest and greatest and the what-not and the how-you-doin'.

Yesterday, January 10, 2015 we released Track Attack 2.2 for Windows Phone.  It’s currently in the review process but should go through in the next 24-48 hours.  Here’s what’s included:

New Features

1. Enhanced Track Database Functionality

There is a new Track Database Page on the first level navigation.  Here you can start exploring all of the tracks on the official track database and update the locally stored track database.  Each track has it’s own profile page, where you can see the start/finish coordinates, a map preview of the track, the ability to designate it as a favorite track, drive it immediately or pin to the start screen.  More on this below.  We are super excited about this functionality and looking forward to rolling out more features on this over the next few months.

2. Enhanced Session History Functionality

You will also see that we’ve re-arranged the History page:

  • All Sessions: This is the familiar view you’ve had in the past where it shows all of your sessions, sorted by default with your most recent sessions first and now we’ve included the ability to change the sorting from descending to ascending.  Here you can also still synchronize your sessions with the sessions on your online profile.
  • Favorite Sessions: Now you can go into a individual sessions and designate them as favorite sessions and those will show up in this section.
  • By Track: Sometimes you just want to see your highlights and in this view, we show your top 5 lap times by track driven.

3. Get going fast with Pin to Start

Pin Tracks to Start: We know how stressful it can be on a track day or a race when you’re waiting for your session to come up and next thing you know, you need to be on pre-grid, strapped in and ready to go.  Even the few extra seconds it takes to have the GPS engine turn on, find the tracks around you and hit start can feel like an eternity.  With the ability to pin race tracks to the start menu, now you can simply select your track and get driving.

Pin Favorite Sessions and Laps To Start: Almost as stressful is when friends want to see some of your on track greatness and you need to get into the app, go to your sessions, find the fastest lap and then bring up that personal best lap time session.  Now you can pin that session or that specific lap to your Start screen so you can instantly start watching!

Folders on the Start Screen: Another really cool thing (if you have an 8.1 Update 1+ Windows Phone) is the ability to create folders on the Start screen.  For example below, I’ve created a folder with all of my usual tracks, so with one click I can get going on the track.  I can imagine creating a folder with all of your personal best fastest laps or the races from each race weekend of the year.  Each phone platform has some really cool differentiators and this is one of the things that makes Windows Phone an awesome platform!

 4. Critical Bug Fix

Users of Track Attack with an external GPS device might have experienced some weird errors like the screenshots below.  The root of the issue is that while these external GPS devices provide sampling at 5 and 10Hz, which is great!  It also comes with bad data at some times, primarily speed values of NaN and “infiniti”.  When and how often these values are provided in inconsistent but Track Attack was not effectively managing these bad values when recording or playing back sessions that had those values in the data file.  In 2.2 we’ve fixed this issue and made sure Track Attack is rock solid when using external GPS sensors.

NAN Speed values causing bugs

This is the result of a session which collected a NAN or infinity value in the GPS data – unfortunately, the session is completely lost.

If a session successfully recorded with a bad GPS value, you would have gotten this error. With the fix, the session will play back correctly.

 

Track Attack Known Issues – iOS, Android and Windows Phone

April 6, 2013

This blog entry for now will be used to publish the known issues we have and status for getting them fixed.  Feel free to post comments on here to add new items or email us at trackattacksupport@9104studios.com.

Track Attack on iOS: Updated 8/6/2014

Current Versions:  2.0.8 (Full Paid Version) 1.0.2 (Lite – enables free download and trial with in-app upgrade option)

Known Issues:

    1. Users who had 2.0.5 or older versions and upgraded to 2.0.6 may experience an issue where their session history is not showing in the history page.  This was reported by 2 users and 2.0.8 resolved the issue.  Note, if you recorded new sessions successfully but they did not show up in your history, they are not lost.  They are simply not showing in the UI.  The 2.0.8 update fixed this problem but contact us at trackattacksupport@9104studios.com if you are still having issues.

 

Track Attack on Android: Updated 8/6/2014

Current Versions:  1.1.7

Known Issues:

    1. Inconsistent lap detection when recording at 1080p and sampling at 10Hz using an external GPS accessory.  The issue is that the application is doing too many things at once and most phones, even with quad core processors cannot detect the lap times in real time.  Status:  Fix is being developed.  ETA:  August 29, 2014.  Note: Recording at 1080p with only the internal GPS sensor works 100%.  Recording at 1080p with 5Hz works 100%.  It is only recording at 1080p at 10Hz which is creating problems.
    2. For users who have purchased PRO, sometimes when internet connection is lost, the app believes the user is still in trial mode.  Status:  Fix is being developed.  ETA:  August 29, 2014.  Workaround: Make sure you have an internet connection, hard kill the application, launch the Google Play store (confirm it is connecting to the store) and then relaunch Track Attack.  Make sure you are signed into Track Attack as well and it should detect you are a PRO customer.  The combination that is needed is validation from the Google Play store as a PRO purchaser and logged in with your account on Track Attack.

 

 

Track Attack on Windows Phone: Updated 8/6/2014

Current Versions:  1.0.2

Known Issues:

    1. Website Processing Errors: HD video uploads are being corrupted during the upload process and causing web site processing errors.  This means that during the upload, at least one block is lost and thus is not a complete file for the server to process.  This can be caused by trying to upload a large video file on a weak or intermittent internet connection.  Ideally, users should connect to the strongest/fastest Wi-Fi connection available and use that to upload a video.  Status:  Fix is being developed.  ETA:  August 10, 2014.  Note: This will not impact any of the sessions on your phone.  Once the fix is released, users will have to re-upload their session videos.
    2. Fun Run Bug: Fun run currently has lap-detection logic built into the session type which means that for auto-crossers who do a Fun Run session, if they go over the same place twice, it will detect that as a lap and not play full session from beginning to end during replay.  Status:  Fix is being developed.  ETA:  August 10, 2014.  Workaround: None.  Once the fix is released, the sessions will play back correctly and future Fun Run recordings will not have any laps detected.
