CrossMgr: New Announcer's Screen

posted Nov 12, 2017, 8:44 AM by Edward Sitarski   [ updated Nov 12, 2017, 9:37 AM ]
CrossMgr now supports a screen specifically designed for race announcers.
This screen is available in a web page ("Web/Index Page") and is real-time updated from current race information (using web sockets).
It is also available as a screen in CrossMgr itself.

The Announcer screen specifically addresses the needs of a race announcer by showing:
  • Current and Expected race positions by lap (expected positions are shown greyed-out).
  • Time gaps for all competitors
  • Estimated Time of Arrival (ETA) for all competitors.  ETA is color-coded in the last 15 seconds (dark-to-light).
  • One-click switch between categories for multi-category races.
  • ETA for all category leaders is always shown - even if that Category is not currently shown.  ETA is color-coded in the last 15 seconds (dark-to-light)
  • Color-coded chase groups with composition.
This gives announcers full knowledge of the current race results as well as what is expected in the next lap/

Give it a try in the CrossMgr simulation.  Do a "Tools/Simulation" and start a mass-start race.  Then do "Web/Index Page...".  After the page opens in your browser, select the "Browser" at the top..

Available in CrossMgr 2.10.49.
