BTRQ Editor v0.5 - Adjust the performance curves of car engines!

Recommended Posts

Crossing of points is still not allowed, since changing the order of points is quite hard for me to handle correctly.

 

AFAIC this isn't needed, it was even helpful when I had to rearrange the curve and to prevent some points of getting out of place. With the coordinate system it is even easier. I'll test this new version right now.

 

What kind of bugs should we be expecting?

Oh yeah, that is true, now I think about it. I thought it was inconvenient if you cannot cross points, but it might actually be more confusing if you could cross them!

I honestly don't know (if I did know, I would have fixed them haha :lol:). No large bugs at least, I think, maybe a small bug when someone tries to do something I haven't tested yet.

So far it works flawlessly, the coordinate system is perfect. And the graphs seem to be working good, no major mistakes in the values/shape.

 

I didn't went bug hunting though, nor I will. I expect people who work with this tool to do so responsibly, so I haven't even tried to cross points by giving them wrong coordinates.

1 --- The first problem is that the actual speed can understand not at all, because tachometer in the cockpit at the change btrq / New Car Mod etc. is frequently incorrect. Hood Cam RPM gauge is totally incorrect !!!

RPM from the cockpit is most reliable method to determine actual RPM.

2 --- The second problem is that you can change RPM and many other parameters also with other programs: TDU Modding tools TDU Performance Editor, BTRQ Editor.etc !!!

And associated with TDU.exe equivalent, which will cause all influence each other ...: (((

Which now basically always has the highest priority I have not yet figured out .... logic but is rather an unknown for many programmers XDD

It is important that at the end in all programs etc the same value at each amended is!

Wrong Way

!!! TDUPE 8000 RPM limiter --- TDUMT 7300 Limiter --- BTRQ 8100 Limiter !!!!!

Correct Way

!!! TDUPE 8000 RPM limiter --- TDUMT 8000 Limiter --- BTRQ 8000 Limiter !!!!!

I hope to have helped someone with it.

I can't quite understand your problems, but:

 

- TDUPE and TDUMT modify the same files so the information SHOULD be the same. If not, then there's a bug in the programs (or you haven't applied changes before loading other program).

 

- BTRQ Editor modifies btrq files so the information CAN'T be the same as TDUMT/TDUPE. This tool has been created to fine tune performance, most of effects are done by TDUMT/TDUPE first.

 

Imo, TDU is not a sim, so trying to get real world values everywhere is not the way to go.

I'm still alive guys :)

Thanks to Djey's PM, I found out my editor didn't work with his newer TDUF versions anymore, so my editor no longer depends on TDUF and instead only uses a standalone decrypter/encrypter for reading and saving .btrq files. It's now not such a hassle to set my editor up with TDUF anymore! The new version can be found here.

Yes it's true. But some will work terribly.

I generally replace BTRQ file only when a new car has a problem with automatic gear shifting (e.g. sometimes new car can't shift up because of rpm limit of replaced car).

For favourite cars I create completely new BTRQ files, because in TDUPE you can set only maximum power and torque parameters. To get closer to the real behaviour of the car, you must tell the game how the car works from the initial rotation up to the redline, and the BTRQ file is responsible for that. My TDU experience tells me that the game reads quite accurately lines of power and rpm from BTRQ, but this file it's not the only source of information for the game. To set cars perfectly I was trying to find that another, but unsuccessfully.

In fact, to have a good fun BTRQ Editor is enough tool for me in terms of power & rpm settings.
