Description (last modified by ste) (diff)
With FS 1.2.13 we have a "clean up" of the GAPs.
GAP2008 is introduced.
Here (most) bugs and unintended features of prev. GAPs are fixed.
GAP2008 (is supposed to) behave the way the various stuff in GAP is intended to behave.
GAP2000, GAP2002, OzGAP2005, GAP2007, GAP2007A will not be distributed with the FS 1.2.13 zip and we will not do any more work on those.
They can still be used. Just copy the dll to the folder where FsComp.exe is and the formula will show up when selecting formula for the task.
However, should be no need to do so. GAP2008 should enable you to do all that the old versions did, only more "correct".
Some new things:
- Manual setting of Day Quality (DQ). Overrides the calc. based on nom. time, dist. and goal. Ie. if you use "no of pilots"/20 over a given distance (as they have done in PWC) for DQ you can do so.
- Any task with DQ=1 will now be a (potential) 1000 points. The "1000 points for open dist or no one ..." option has been removed. This goes back to the original GAP formula where an unintended feature was that max 900 points where possible for open distance tasks and tasks where no one got to goal.
- "Normalize to 1000 for winner (before Day Quality is applied)" option.
For Elapsed task, Race task with multiple startgates or any task where one use leading points there is a chance that the winner do not get a 1000 points because the max leading points (or departure points) goes to someone else than the fastest pilot (or the pilot flying farthest).
This option allows you to say that it will be 1000 points to the winner anyhow (before Day Quality is applied).
- bunch of minor fixes that had effect in very rare cases.
