Pock Race Trainer will give you the chance to learn from trainers, ghosts, AI or other racers of PCARS. It allows monitoring, recording and replay of race sessions and comes with a fully configurable layout. Race Trainer is a windows application and works with the PC and console versions of Project CARS.
- Windows 7 – 10
- .NET Framework 4.5
Race Trainer hat three different operation modes:
The following sections describes the different operation modes in detail:
If you are using a trainer you can choose between different trainer types:
Stored Trainer lap (Top Trainer)
Ghost, AI, Online Multiplayer
- racing line
Ghosts in PCars:
You can find more than 50,000 ghost laps in PCars where you can analyse the race line in Race Trainer. For demonstration 50 ghosts laps are available (one ghost per track). If you use ghosts their laps are stored locally and these laps are also available in replay. The ghosts in PCars are ideally suited for comparing your race line with the race line of the ghost.
AI, other player:
During offline or online races you can watch the race line of one race member (currently no choice available for using a specific race member)
With this mode you can select a track for analysing your laps in detail. Optionally you can select a trainer to compare your lap with the lap of the trainer.
- Do the replay in slow motion for detail analysis
- Get an overview of the lap with the fast forward feature
- Use the replay slider to switch to any position you like.
- Use track zoom and gap detection function
In track map control you can do the following:
- Align the track always with the racer (Drive View)
- Keep the track layout in one orientation (Top View)
- Scale the track to the size you like (Zoom slider)
- Find your greatest gaps (gap analysis). This is available for your own lap and laps of Top Trainer.
- Track Slider: you can restrict the range of the tracks.
- Gap Slider: you set the percentage by which the gaps are calculated
an example: A racer is 5 seconds slower than the trainer. If you set the gap slider to the value of 10% all gaps are represented where one gap is at least slower than 0.5 seconds.
The gap to the trainer is also displayed. If that gap appears in green colour the racer is faster than the trainer. If the gap appears in red colour the trainer is faster than the racer.
You can simple monitor your race and training sessions. If you want you can display additional timing and distance information from the other race members. Some information is calculated by Race Trainer. It’s a known issue that this calculation doesn’t work for all available tracks.
