Well after a long time I decided to make it finally, and I did a much bigger work than I wanted to do first.
This means site version is v 5.1 now. Why?
Yep, you can now set up a password, and live racing + send replay scripts are only accessible with a password.
How can you get a password?
tell me you need a password.
I create you a password, which you can change anytime on the site.
After you changed the password it'll be stores in the database as a MD5 crypted hash, so I won't know your password (but can still use your accound by using the hash as a password)
Now about the live racing section. It's accessible from the community menu.
Lets imagine I'm not there if some people want to have a nice live event.
One pipsqueak decides which track to use, and which car. He opens "start anew race" page, and writes all the information he wans to share. Important thing is the track ID. Please try to folow a sequence, it should look like liveXXX where XXX is of course not a sex site but a number.
After you entered the data, the ID will be available at the "send replay" section. Now we wont send a replay, but a track. If it"s a well-known track, please send it too, because it'"s better if all tracks are available on which we had a live race. Aftr you uploaded the track the system will automatically rename it.
Lets wait until the starting time, and lets race!
When pipsqueaks finish their best lap and dont want to race more, they also open the "send replay" page, and send their replay through the net. You only need the ID number, the rpl file, and your username+password.
After you sent it, a confirmation screen should appear, where you can see the exact time when you sent the replay (in seconds too), and the time you achieved.
the system cant count penalty time! Please avoid penalty in live races, we should consider this having as a new rule.
Ok, race finished, and no need for anything, you can see all the results on the "former results" page, of course they are sorted by finishing time.
And also you can download all the replays either here by clicking on the pipsqueaks name, or from the combined archive, from the "replays sent" page.
So this is all. Sure there'll be some bugs, and it's easy to cheat with the times, but since we suppose we are honest when we say noRH, then I think noone will cheat.
And later we can use the password system for many intresting things
enjoy the liverace system, but be careful! You have direct access to the database! Don't ruin it please
