My Widget is running races as I type this. maptidh has shown up in the drivers list as well. I run the widget exclusively on the Spain server. maptidh has been set as sole "use always" list at this point. Didn't save the list prior to the first race queuing up so will run a couple more to make sure the widget pulls his drivers with priority.
My suggestions for those of you having trouble;
Go to the Widet Preferences;Right click the Widget again and select Force Re-authentication and see if it starts working.
Under the Account tab, set Country to Spain. If that doesn't work keep trying different countries until one does work or none do.Click Save.
Under the Races tab, set Race On: to Events of any Length. I've tried the other settings in that drop down and it's not worked on any but this one.
Under the Advanced Tab, set Concurrent Threads to 1 Thread and Driver Reservation Delay to 5 Seconds and check the box to Save race logs to disk.
While I don't think these settings are important I can't say for any certainty that they are not affecting the widget in some unknown way. Under the Window Tab, which I haven't changed from default after the last install, Set Window Level to normal, make sure the check boxes for Ignore Mouse and Prevent Dragging are clear and set the Opacity to 100%
Also keep in mind, this thing is not instantaneous. It will take time for the widget to contact the server you've set it for and start reserving drivers. It does give a progress bar as it does so and the logs will show it as well but you have to keep closing and re-opening the log file for it to write the data. I don't think the widget can even write to the logs while they are open in an editor program. Perhaps with a newer operating system they can. I have no real empirical evidence to support this other than closing and re-opening the files myself while the widget is running.
Second round of racing about to start. Will see if it pulls new drivers list settings.
maptidh's drivers not used yet. Checking logs. Something I've noticed is on the driver's list maptidh's driver count is "?". Recommend maptidh go to his country's gt5 site and log in/log off a couple times there and see if that helps. Several months ago I had to do this with all my accounts so the driver's list would synch up to the widget.
Third round of races queuing up now. I don't think the widget functionality is dead just yet.
4th round running now. maptidh's drivers still not being pulled. Please go to your gt5 site and try that log cycle. Will try again after you've confirmed to have done so.
Can Someone help me please? I feel like I've done everything and this still isn't working.
I'm logged in to the Spain server, I've debugged, I've restarted both PS3 and PC, I've started a couple races manually, but it still doesn't show any of my friends drivers.

Goto your local collage and look for programming classes. With GT6 around the corner, I don't see this app getting much attention anymore. I still have a semester or two before I am to the point that I could take on this project. However, I will definitely be looking into doing the same thing for gt6, if its possible.Please start this feature back up or tell me how to get it going again.
Nothing announced as of yet, considering we have no idea how its all going to work yet anyway. The OP had stepped out like 6 or 7 months ago as well, without word if they will be making a comeback for gt6.
