    This is not another database!! This is a program to have your own database.

    Newest video of this program.


    Screens for version 110.1.2.6 with some info.
    Image1.jpg
    MAIN SCREEN after full startup, you see the list, pressing the car picture, you see the settings for that car, I used my capture program, made a screengrab, cut out the main car with some shadows and exported it as a PNG with aphalayer so it only shows the car.
    You can scroll, or use the little arrowbuttons in the bluebar inbetween the record numbers and the carname/tunername
    -
    -
    Image2.jpg
    When you pressed the car picture in the main screen, you get to this sheet screen for a good view of the settings for that record.You can scroll onto the next car/record using the arrowbuttons in the blue bar under the car-image
    -
    -
    Image3.jpg
    When you click "file" and select edit, you get this screen, the edit screen can be choosen in both the main- and tuningsheet screen.
    -
    -
    Image4.jpg
    You see the current gametype's possible (little window) and my latest addition to add custom text, in wich i put in my text i always typed, and now can add it with a button press.(grey text box)
    This text is adjustable anytime and is saved while typing, so it reloads every time when entering the edit screen.
    -
    -
    Image5.jpg
    Advanced/multiple search option is only accessable when you are in the main screen (ctrl+M)
    Normal search for one phrase can be done in every screen (ctrl+F)
    -
    -
    Image6.jpg
    The result for searching vision car tunes in MY DATABASE.( yes only 5)
    -
    -
    Image7.jpg
    Hovering the arrow/mouse over the car-image, results in a little magnify view. Click and you enter that record/cars tuningsheet.
    -
    -
    Image8.jpg Clicked the car-image and voila, the tuningsheet for that car, based on praiano, but i changed some on the LSD, but i do give credit for the tuner, because i use these screens in my youtube recordings.
    Pressing the car-image in this screen, creates a screenshot, but without the windows bars (top and statusbar) Just click file and print and select printer or screenshot.

    Old screens.
    [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]
    New Screens (ver.1.05) (old now, currently version 1.10)
    [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]
    I was saving all tunes i used, but it took time to find the tunes again, so i used an old database file i created once, and modified it.

    Keep in mind, this is a hobby, i'm not going for perfection on this one.(edit 2015, the program layout is simple, but i noticed i'm going for perfection with the program functions, already changed the program 30 times)

    -No drivers or wierd dll files needed.Only a proper windows.

    Video from the first beta

    Download, just try it, don't like it? delete it.
    No setup, just a zip file.
    No database link anymore.
    program gives you the choice.Download mine? or create new empty database.

    UPDATES After download read the readme.txt.
    Download Version 1.10 .exe only. At first start you can choose "new" or download mine.
    Current version 110.1.3.9,
    Created a 1600x900 version also, so 2 versions in 1 download.
    110.1.3.9
    1 bugfix, 2 improvements
    Tunescreen, 20 char txt for tires removed wheel info, fixed.
    Search, Gametypes are now alfabetical
    Edit, Gametypes are now alfabetical
    Bugs/History
    110.1.3.9
    1 bugfix, 2 improvements
    Tunescreen, 20 char txt for tires removed wheel info, fixed.
    Search, Gametypes are now alfabetical
    Edit, Gametypes are now alfabetical

    110.1.3.8
    exporting to zip adds the recordnumber to the zipname
    i got a bug when i exported two different tunes that had the same name.

    110.1.3.7
    Added GT300 and GT500 to gametype.

    110.1.3.6
    -Fixed a bug for exporting all foto/images at once
    I used an old method that messed up and exported more images
    that are actually in your database.

    110.1.3.5
    -Fixed bug, after copy a tune, the tunername would be
    added with the word "copy", this is fixed.
    (ignored when tunername starts with "copy").
    -little Fix for writing tunernames into .ini after deleting a name.
    -Added topmenu "EDIT" button, or press ctrl+E to go to edit page.
    Faster access to edit screen.

    110.1.3.4
    Added Rain" to gametype
    Fixed some bugs.

    110.1.3.2
    Added AYC to diff selection, added AYC text to first diff field
    Use initial torque field for the AYC value.
    No conversion needed, so no worries.

    110.1.3.1 More bugfixes, forgot some changes i did weeks ago.

    110.1.3.0
    Bugfix, restart the program added the tunernames again.

    110.1.2.9
    Added 5speed to gearbox choice (totally forgot)
    Added a dropdown for allready used tunernames, saves time.
    This is a bit buggy, when you mistype a tunername and change
    to next/add/copy tune (buttons beneath the image) or mouse
    hovers over tunername listbox or delete button, the tunername
    is added to the list, but you can delete it from the list again.
    I want to have some things automaticly added when entered.
    If you have a better solution, let me know.(extra add button?)

    110.1.2.8
    Added two more gametypes
    A-spec and B-spec, A-spec is probably too much, but meh.
    Added (body)kit (a,b,c) and manual input at the aero button
    Added carwash and manual input at the rigidity/oil button
    The options just fitt the length of the cells
    so there's no database conversion needed.
    I thought about the wing types, but too many options.
    The "special bodyparts" like mirror, lightcaps,lightbar
    are just cosmetics in my opinion, If the text don't fit?
    add it in the extra info box.

    110.1.2.7
    Bug found in 1600x900 version,
    year button did not autodetect if car has 'xx in the name.
    After fixing the bug, i changed some text a bit.
    Changed powerparts text a little
    Changed "exterior" text into "exterior aero"

    110.1.2.6
    -Changed text aero to Floor
    -Enabled normal search in tunesheet- and edit page (ctrl+F)
    -Added a custom textbox, the text is saved to use into the extrainfobox
    i always had to type traction,abs,gears,ds3, now the text is saved
    from that box, reloads every time, and can be added with an add button.
    text can always be changed as you like

    110.1.2.5
    -bugfixes for search options
    -Normal search only search for carname now.
    because there are different fieldtypes (integer),
    the script halted at the field "year"
    -cancel at normal search resulted in error, is fixed.
    -Multisearch canceled resulted in reset of table, fixed.
    -when a multisearch is active and second search canceled,
    the result stays active.

    110.1.2.4
    -Added "Hystoric classic" to gametype
    Not really needed, you could use multisearch for classics years

    According to GT6, classicmuscle is from 1981 and older
    press ctrl-M and search years max 1981, then edit the cars
    ctrl-M is Multisearch (F5 resets multisearch results)


    110.1.2.3
    -Multisearch added RWD rear wheel drive search

    110.1.2.2
    -improved the multisearch, when no minimal value
    is entered at year or pp, the program enters
    a value and asks for confirmation.
    -Youtube link now hotlinks to the program's video.
    same as the GTplanet link to the GTP topic.

    110.1.2.1
    Added custom at the wheel button (4 choices now)
    removed the win8 spinning dot.

    110.1.2.0
    -Edit-Bug found by user, 1600x900 tab error
    tab did not jump to the next entrypoint
    -change in button actions.
    Some users selected NO and are used to it
    so that's back.
    But i added extra functions to buttons.
    -extra funtions for buttons, rightclick clears value
    Only for buttons without manual or clear options.
    -changed help for editpage.

    110.1.1.9
    -changed text chassis to Rigidity
    -removed text kgfm/NM from tunesheet
    -added/changed custom wheel to custom 1up or 2up
    -removed background autochange in edit screen
    changes only once, messed up when editing
    -background auto changes only in tunesheet view
    -Changed fontsize, main screen bottomright of the table
    Carname/tunername displayed, Font 1 size smaller

    110.1.1.8
    -Added HotHatch to gametype
    -Added Europe to region search.
    all europe cars are displayed now
    no need to type it in extrainfo search.

    110.1.1.7
    -Changed behaviour for buttons in
    DIFF,POWER,BODY, select NO will empty the box.
    -Changed script for gametype added subroutine.
    -Gametype in tunesheet is back, does not display
    manual text in gametype, only standard program gametypes.
    -Changed text Drivetype to Drivetrain
    -Changed text Brakes into brakekitt in tunesheet
    -Added failsafe so only numbers 0-9 can enter
    in the boxes PP,BHP,TORQUE,WEIGHT,BALLAST

    110.1.1.6
    Found a small bug in the gametype box.
    manual button did not check for the added gametypes.
    Added two more gametypes GT3 and Touringcar (DTM)
    Le mans and then GT3 results in LMSGT3
    the prog will see supergt (SGT), just create GT3LMS and done.
    Fixed screenshot export, if you have more tunes for same car
    Record number is added behind the screenshot name.
    now the screenshots will not be overwritten
    when the carname and tunername are the same but it is
    another record(setting)

    110.1.1.5
    Added two gametypes electric and hybrid

    110.1.1.4
    Bugfix centerdifftrackbar in editscreen
    Noticed that centerdiff trackbar
    acted wierd when mouse entered.
    Values were wrong calculated
    Changed script.


    110.1.1.3
    Noticed that Chaparral vision has year 2025
    Changed max year from 2017 to 2025
    Changed conversion text
    Added small infobox when a update is online.
    Only appears when update is available.
    Removed leftover bug in 1024x768 version.
    Drivetype select added 2WD when the car was no 4WD.

    110.1.1.2
    Fixed some bugs.
    Important fix was: using TAB in editscreen was again messed up.
    This problem happens always when i add/change a button/entry


    110.1.1.1
    4th Conversion.
    Added two extra fields, this makes searching almost 100% perfect
    But the conversion also needs user editing afterwards.
    You need to edit/check "cartype" "gametype" and "year" (buildyear)
    What is best before the update.conversion?
    1. Add the buildyear to each car as '66 or '70 or '13, NOT 1966 or 2013!!!
    Use the original carname in the game!!!
    No year? the car gets 2013 as buildyear
    2. Do not update the program to 110.1.1.1 and keep using the old database, you will get errors.

    109.1.1.5
    Added extra multiple search function for 2Wd only (FR,FF,MR,RR cars will lbe displayed)
    Added Extra Multiple search for years. for '90 cars, two dropdown selections,
    select '90 and '99 and all cars between those years are displayed.
    This last one has one bug, if you only want drift cars and years min/max is also active, drift search will be ignored.
    You need to enter the year at each car as '66 or '00 or '78 or '99, just like the game does.Do not enter 2001 or 1966
    example: Chaparral 2J '70

    109.1.1.3
    Small bug, cartype is only 15characters, edit screen allowed more.Extra text can be added in extrainfo box.
    Resized the logo in the bottom right corner.
    replaced my old logo with the new logo in the "about" box.
    Created a subroutine that was 5x in the program (scriptcleanup)
    Added a search script, when you don't do the update correct, and just extract the program and start it.
    If you have allready a database? and you did not extract the files into that folder? this should help
    to find your old database again.
    The script can be choosen when the program does not find any database file in the same folder.

    109.1.1.2
    Bug found, create database was 3 times in the program, when creating "new" you get the message that the database is not compatible.
    Made a subroutine, and used that in all three parts.problem fixed.
    This did not matter in function, but was waste of code.

    109.1.1.1
    Added search option for MIN/MAX PP value(s), Database needs 3rd conversion (pp field from string to integer)
    database is backupped again before conversion!!!(GT6TUNESbackup3.zip)
    Conversion is tested with database version 1.06 and database version 1.07,
    If PP has no numbers while converting?"0"(zero) will be the value after conversion.(i had a field with ??? that messed up))
    Changed multiple searchbox, Drivetype is now dropdown, no typing.(4wd,FF,FR,MR etc.)
    Changed conversion message and status message for updatecheck at start.


    108.1.1.3
    low contrast did not work in the mainscreen, removed script.
    added low contrast to all white boxes in tuning and editscreen.
    One minor point, when low contrast is selected, browsing in tuningscreen is slower
    The program renders the text with the background, and that slows it a bit down.
    Changed screengrab, status- and windows bars are not grabbed anymore.
    Added logo and links to my youtube and GTplanet.


    108.1.1.2
    Thanks to NowControl we found another bug.
    Bug in initial speed box, it occurs that ERROR appears when entering text.
    Fixed this with a seperate button and removed the script from the box.
    For nowcontrol, added option to change table color to lower contrast.

    108.1.1.1
    FOund a problem in edit, after copy record, the autosave did not work
    and "save" in filemeu was disabled when editscreen was accessed from tuningsheetscreen.
    Changed update check script, not noticable but does not need a temp folder when checking.
    Added better file check.
    Added option to create new empty database.(Old database will always be backupped)
    Added "edit" in the "GOTO" topmenu.
    Released topmenu "foto" in every screen.(Was disabled in edit screen)
    Single database download, programs will not be in the database-zip
    No database? Program will provide with a link or with option for new clean database and you start from scratch.

    107.1.2.6
    Trackbars fixed in edit screen, trackbars show proper value when mouse enters.

    107.1.2.5
    Major problem fixed, after updating my compiler, the program gives resource error when you use a theme that conflicts with windows theme settings.
    Your windows will not notice anyting, but the program topmenu crashes.
    I rolled back my compiler, and the problem is fixed.
    Bugfix, export tuningsheet to jpg, tuner name missing, fixed that.
    Please give me feedback on youtube or GTPLANET in my topic if you have problems.
    But also feedback if you like it and/or have suggestions.

    107.1.1.4
    -1024x768 version Topmenu "options" placed correctly, was different from the 1600x900 edition.
    -Fixed a little bug in the weightdistribution trackbar
    -Some other bugs fixed.
    -Changed scripts for dropdown menu's attached to buttons, now i can move buttons and the scripts make sure
    the dropdown menu's are in the right place.
    -Added calculation to initial speed entry, if you enter 137MPH? 220kmh is autoadded, if you enter 220KMH? 137mph is autoadded.
    -Access to menu options enabled when in tuningsheet screen

    107.1.1.3 Mistake made in editscreen(s), fixed dropdown menu's from every button.

    107.1.1.2 Found 2 little things, not very buggy, but fixed it.tab in edit did not jump properly and
    if you enter power/weight yourself, it changed again when the program checked.

    version 1.07
    After feedback from "SGETI" and question for 3 extra fields, both programs are changed
    Extra fields are: Torque, Total weight and power2weight ratio.
    database get's a second conversion to add the 3 fields.
    had to fix the multiple search script and added Region search as extra.
    Added BHP and Weight to the Sorting menu
    All is tested, backup of old database is made.
    DO NOT ENTER WEIGHT or BHP AS 1.000 or 1,000, just enter 1117 or 2000 or 1340, don't use "," or ".",
    if Weight and BHP values are entered? when the mouse hovers over "power/weight ratio" the value pre-enters itself.
    Adding ballast will not auto-add to weight and will not be implemented.

    Version 106.1.1.4

    Added options to disable update check at start and the minion "hello"sound

    Version 1.06
    Major update, Longest GT6 original carname is now possible.

    Version 1.02:
    Bugfix region.
    Added regionbutton for extra info

    Features version 1.01:
    -You handle the database yourself, you don't need to download database updates,
    ..Only the program updates, just replace the exe file(s)
    -fast search for car
    -fast multi search for style/type/car (drift/MR/Nissan)
    -export/import one record
    -export to the same name and records are merged
    -import/export foto/image
    -print sheet to printer or screenshot
    -Internet is not used, only if you need another tune you want to add to your database.
    -you control the database, download beta with the start database and try it.
    -you create a tune, you export record and picture, you upload and other people can import record and picture into their database.

    Bug: forgot region, but region can be added in extra info
    Add in the extra info box for example : "japan asia" or "amerika muscle usa" or "german europe"
    I could add a region record, but this would mess up the current database.

    -can't search between two pp values (yet, Don't know if it is a good thing, i don't search on PP, displays more tunes too choose from.)
    workaround:search for drift/race/region and sort the result on PP FIXED

    -database is always sorted alfabetical on the first record when you start the program.
    workaround: you can sort on first 8 records, just sort again on one of those records.
    -Database size can increase very much, the reason are the pictures.
    Use smaller size pictures and it will not increase much in size.

    Tips.
    If you use this program for the first time and downloaded my program dat includes my latest database?
    Tunes that you don't like, you can delete.
    But carefull, i don't know what happens if you delete all my data from the database.
    Leave one record, add a new record for yourself, and then you can delete my last record.
    But then again, you can always extract the database files again.


    Added a tune yourself but don't have a picture?
    -Use google for a picture.
    -Startup GT6, take a foto ingame (not with your phone) of your car.
    Go to your Galleries in GT6, export the picture to your PS3
    Exit game, go to your pictures in your ps3, export to usbstick.
    Add picture in the edit screen, save, close program and the foto is saved in the database.
    if you don't close the database, and remove the usbstick, it can happen that the foto is not saved in the database.
    This is a bug from the DBF plugin i use.I cannot fix that.

    Wow, so you think i redo other people work?
    Writing an offline program with offline database?

    Your links are online, and the question is.
    Good or bad idea.

    So it is a bad idea.
    Good, then i'm going to change OP and be egoïstic.
    Thank you.

    \edit. maybe not be egoïstic, changed it back but different..
    it is NOT a new database, you can download my database to see how it looks and works.
    The program enables you to have your person database.
    personal tunes, personal pictures, Tunes from others that you only like.

    It's not really a bad idea, I would say a tad unnecessary, but not bad.

    There is nothing to say this wouldn't be a valuable tool for those who would like an offline database to reference on their own computer. It would obviously cut down on the amount of time they would be using their internet connection.

    But with @XS' directory and the GTP Tunes database already up and running it would seem the bases are pretty well covered and I for one think there's not really a need for a third option. Lets face it, users would need to go online to upload the tunes (again) and others would need to do likewise to download any new updates. I think this would be pretty long winded if someone was just looking for a couple of specific tunes as both of the already available options have search facilities and the time could be just as well used by using them to find what they looking for.

    By all means continue, as I said I think it is something some people would find useful. :tup:

    I would also like to say, taking the attitude you have in your previous post is also a bit unnecessary. You asked for opinions and one was given. there is no need to go on a strop because the answer that was given wasn't what you wanted to hear.

    I wish you well with your idea and hope you can achieve what you have set out to do.

    Good luck with it!

    Bug: forgot region, but region can be added in extra info
    Add in the extra info box for example : "japan asia" or "amerika muscle usa" or "german europe"
    I could add a region record, but this would mess up the current database.
    i tried if i can create a patch, but the simple way is still to add the info in the extra info box.

    also changed the multiple search box.
    2 screens, the searchbox and the result.
    [​IMG] [​IMG]

    How to do:
    file->edit->simple mode
    [​IMG]
    change in this last pic means chance.

    edit. removed link, newer version is available in OP.

    Bugfix and added region to infobox

    (no database, program only)
    Bugfix does not affect your database, just a button to add text to extrainfo
    Latest version and my current database is downloadable in the OP
    Edit. removed link, newer version is available.

    New version available. 1.03.1.3
    Fixed and changed the sort menu, removed invallid options and added sorting on tunername.
    Autocheck for update added without a popup message.
    status message will appear at the bottom and flash red.
    Flashing stops when the program is used on a buttonclick.
    Update should be accessed with the update function in the help menu.
    Let's wait and see if the update option works.

    appreciate the work. quickly browsed around and this will surely replace my pen and paper. Now it will be my time to get to work and input all my tune settings. Is there anyway to make the screen larger? i tried all the tricks i know to enlarge screen and none of them worked. my old eyes could use all the help they can get.

    Thank you for feedback, you're the second person.
    After 80 downloads, i expected more feedback.

    But i need to ask some questions, before i wrap my brain around a solution.
    What screens are a problem?
    If it is the top menu (file,search,sort,foto,go to,help) i can't do much about that.

    But i tried something myself.
    In windows 7 if i press the windowslogokey and +, the screen magnifies.
    WINLOGO + "+" Zooms in
    WINLOGO + "-" zooms out
    In this mode CTRL + ALT + L you get a lens screen that follows the mouse cursor.
    In magnifymode WINLOGO + ESC, out of magnify mode.
    But i think you allready tried that.


    I can try to increase the fontsize of the text bar's in the edit screen.
    I'm limited, because i don't know what resolution is the minimum, so i choosed 1024x768.
    I could try to compile a special version for you.
    I need you max resolution of your screen and see what option there are.

    I'm working on a special version.
    Allready got the table in the mainscreen changed from 9 to 18 pixel font.
    Now i know the resolution, i will increase the screen size and change all access in the screens.
    However, i can't change the font in the topmenu.
    Could take a while,

    I for one appreciate the effort. I had already built one for myself, but I have just downloaded yours and will try it.

    I think what some people are not realizing is the purpose of an offline database. Hopefully your new thread title will fix that.

    Real world race teams have their own databases of previous setups that they have used at any given track. This allows them to have a starting point and reference when they first arrive.

    Like those real teams, when I spend hours working on a setup for one of my cars, I want to record it and also be able to retrieve it quickly. That is where an offline database such as this comes in. It is a more powerful version of the setup sheets that many other tuners here use. It is NOT a replacement for the online databases that allow us to find other tuners setups that they have shared. Yes, it is a similar tool, but it is a very different usage.

    You get the point of my idea.
    Even when everybody uses this program, They all have a different database.
    In the extrainfo box, you can add what tracks you used it.
    Then if you want to see what cars or tunes are use for a track?
    Topmenu->search->Find multiple-> enter the track in the extrainfo and search, all tunes with that match will be shown.

    There are still some beauty bugs, and maybe some other bugs/mistakes, but i fix them when i come accross them.

    I hope this program can help you with your goal.

    working very well. Just wish i could clone myself to be able to enter the tunes in a quicker pace. Total weight , power to weight ratio, and torque. any plans to add these headings?

    Anyone who is still using pen and paper must also have only a land line with a corded phone. Get with the times people, This a great product, saves you time and at the same time organizes your tunes. No more flipping through pages of notes trying to find that one tune for that one track. No more trying to read your 2:00 AM scribbling.
    Try it, nothing to lose except your pen and paper.

    Yes, feedback. Thank you.
    So you need three extra collums, you're in luck, i was checking this out allready after i made the script for converting the database.
    But the thing is, can i add it in the editscreen and tuning sheet without losing readability.
    I will try, you will notice it when a new update comes up.
    The program will tell you it will convert the database.
    But no promise.
    thanks again for the feedback.

    Pfff. that was a challenge.
    Got the 1600x900 version working with changed edit screen and changed tuningsheet screen.
    The conversion was a hard one.Until i found a simple solution.
    After BHP you get Torque and Weight
    then weight distribution and then power/weight ratio
    Now implement into the other program, and the update will be released.

    Version 1.07.1.1.2
    Download in first post.
    Added idea from @SGETI
    version 1.07
    Database will be converted if you accept.If you choose "scared"? database will not be converted.
    It is a failsafe i build in.But the message will appear everytime if you use newer program versions.

    After feedback from "SGETI" and question for 3 extra fields, both programs are changed
    Extra fields are: Torque, Total weight and power2weight ratio.
    database get's a second conversion to add the 3 fields.
    had to fix the multiple search script and added Region search as extra.
    Added BHP and Weight to the Sorting menu
    All is tested, backup of old database is made.
    DO NOT ENTER WEIGHT or BHP AS 1.000 or 1,000, just enter 1117 or 2000 or 1340, don't use "," or ".",
    if Weight and BHP values are entered? when the mouse hovers over "power/weight ratio" the value pre-enters itself.
    Adding ballast will not auto-add to weight and will not be implemented.

    Cannot do anything with the program except view those tunes already in the database.

    I want to start a database of my own tunes, but it's not letting me do anything else :confused: ?????

    Wierd, i look into it.
    What version of windows do you use?
    Save your theme setings and change to standard, if the problem persists, let me know.

    Try to clean up your temp directory
    i use tempfree, here's a link. tempfree.zip
    I tried to look for that error, i hope i can find a solution.

    i test on windows 7 64bit, i tried it once on a virtual win8.
