Alright guys, so I'm about as experienced as a 5-year old when it comes to computers. However, we got lucky and YourHomieG figured out how telemetry works and got it to work for our little BMW!!! It was complicated, without much direction, but I have gotten us Motec to install, use iRacing-specific notation, convert telemetry files, and fully graph them. I'll show you the quick steps to get us all up to speed so we can make some scary-fast setups.
Step 1: Go into a practice session in iRacing to create your Documents/iRacing/Telemetry folder. This folder is automatically created by pressing Alt+L. A telemetry icon will appear, similar to your throttle, black box, latency, etc. Complete a lap on track and the folder will be created, just like the folders for each car in "setups".
Step 2: Go to http://members.iracing.com/jforum/po...t/3217717.page Scroll down to where it says "Motec Help Files". From there, download Motec i2 Pro 1.0. Follow the wizard, install it to your C drive if possible, because the next step may rely on where the Motec program is launched from. Someone who knows more about computers can correct me if this is false, but I had room and wanted to be safe, so I installed it to C drive. If Motec opens after install, ignore its prompt to create a project it pops up. That's for the steps later on.
Step 3: On the same page, right below the download link you just used to install Motec i2, install Mu. Mu is a program that is used to convert the telemetry files iRacing outputs to the format the Motec reads, because of course they're not naturally compatible. Mu runs in the background processes, and can be X'ed out after you open it just like Trading Paints.
NOTE: If you already had Motec installed, I would uninstall it. I had the version installed that I indirectly found thru Venom's video he linked me, and it turns out that Mu doesn't work with certain versions. It needs version 1.0 to function. This f'ed me up for a couple hours. (I've been at this all night)
Step 4: Go to http://members.iracing.com/jforum/po...t/3280243.page Scroll down to the bottom of the first post and find the download link to Project 2015-v6-Master.zip. This is the Workspace that Motec uses that is designed by some nice guy in the UK that solved the huge issue of needing to make a new Workspace for each car. If you've ever used AutoCAD/Solidworks/Photoshop its kinda like your profile settings that load automatically everytime you open the program.
Step 5: These are a couple small steps in a row; bear with me. Extract the files somewhere you can find them easily. Now open up Motec. Click "Open Existing Project". Find a folder named Project 2015-v6-Master that should have been created wherever you extracted the folder to. Open the folder, and load "Project", a .mtcprj fie.
Step 6: Now we have to make Motec easier on the eyes. On http://members.iracing.com/jforum/po...t/3280243.page, (same page you DL'ed the Workspace from) dowload the bottom file called Project 2015 colour scheme-v2.mcs. Copy that .mcs file to your Users-name-AppData-Roaming-Motec-Schemes folder. YOU WILL NEED TO MAKE THE SCHEMES FOLDER INSIDE OF THE MOTEC FOLDER TO PLACE THAT COLOR FILE IN.
Step 7: Alright, now everything should work. Go run some quick laps to test. Again, press Alt+K to initiate telemetry recording. This doesn't need to be pressed while in-car, as telemetry will automatically be recorded as long as you've hit ALT+K when you joined the session. After you've run laps, go into Motec, and make sure you've got the Project 2015 Workspace open. Then go to File, "Open Log File", and then just like setups, go to documents/iRacing/telemetry. Mu should have converted all of iRacing's files to Motec's file type. Open your file and become mesmerized.
This stuff is extremely detailed. This is where I don't know to start. We can all learn this together, this is the painstaking process of how the fast guys apparently became REALLY fast. Really hope my simple step guide can help. This all should be laid out in the stickies of iRacing's forum, but it isn't. All the info is there, but it's scattered to like 8 different threads/videos.
