2018-07-28 snapshot

Changes:
  • Added /log command. Type "/log e 10" to leave erode info on the track and "/clearlog" to remove the markers.
  • Added "erode_lateral_scale" setting to tileinfo.
  • Added "erode_front_scale" setting to tileinfo.
  • Client version is now 33.

Windows users: http://mxsimulator.com/snapshots/mx-2018-07-28-1418.exe
Linux users: http://mxsimulator.com/snapshots/mxbin-2018-07-28-1418

Replace mx.exe or mxbin with one of the above files. The default location for mx.exe should be "C:\Program Files (x86)\MX Simulator". I'd keep a backup of the originals since these aren't well tested.

Explanation of the erode log info:

speed - the speed of the wheel
slip - slip speed
fx - force lateral to velocity vector before processing
fz - force along velocity vector before processing
pfx - force lateral to velocity vector after processing
pfz - force along velocity vector after processing

By before/after processing I mean before/after all of the various settings in the tileinfo file are applied.

Hah! Didn't even notice that. It means log, "e" is for erode and 10 is for 10 feet between markers. I thought I might want to use it for some other stuff besides erode so I put in the extra field for new options in the future.

Is there a way to make this work with playing in 3rd person? Right now I just get a bunch of markers popping in my face. Also, is there a way to toggle off the log recording, or at least toggle the markers? When I enter "/log e 10," then "/clearlog" it clears the previous markers, but continues to make new ones. Or is the idea just to use this with demos?

Which one, before or after, affects erode?

It doesn't work with demos. I'll add a scale option so they won't block your view in 3rd person.

For the force numbers, before is the raw unprocessed force vector and after is the vector used in the final erode step.
