Donations are welcome!

New release candidate with a few updates and new features (Please read the change log carefully!)

- Change Log -

0.5.7 RC1 (08/05/2013) Build # 559
-------------------------------------------
[1] New Logger features require added parameters in the logger definition file. Therefore the minimum version of logger.xml is 155. A warning will be displayed if the version is below this prompting the user to update.

[2] The settings XML file can be stored in the RomRaider directory as an alternate location. This allows multiple customized installations to exist each with their own settings.

Editor
  • no changes

Logger
  • Added feature to read DTC via SSM connection [*1]
  • Added feature to adjust the global timing and AC on/off idle RPM values [*1]
  • Added feature to read ECU specific Learning Table Values [*1]
  • Added feature to allow user to define conversion formulas for Phidget sensors
  • TXS plugin update: by nitros
  • changed QueryManager to break TCU queries up as TCU doesn't support long CAN queries
  • support for signed integer values added [*1]
  • support for non-contiguous multi-byte parameters added [*1]
  • corrections to ISO15765 support, fixed debug messages and array index problem.
  • changed SSM test application to write bytes rather than blocks
  • changed SSM test application to allow selection of byte or block reads
  • update PLX sensor types to drop data for unknown sensor address 4032
  • force some font styles to plain as Linux seems to use bold as default

Operational Notes
  • Since RomRaider relies on various externally provided classes and vendor libraries, the 64bit Java VM is not supported. The RomRaider installer and Editor will issue warnings if a 64bit Java VM is detected and advise the user to uninstall it and install the 32bit Java VM. The Logger will warn and exit. It is unlikely that 64bit Java VM will even be supported as all external classes and vendor libraries must be compiled for native 64bit operation. See note 3 for an example.
  • To log External sensors only, un-select both the ECU and TCU checkbox on the Logger menu bar. Then switch to the Externals tab and check the items to be logged. The log Externals only setting is not retained between logging sessions.
  • The use of ISO15765 requires a J2534 compliant cable. Since the J2534 specification only defines Windows 32bit (not 64bit) systems as a valid platform, Linux and 64bit systems are not officially supported. When/if a Linux J2534 driver becomes available then support can be enabled for non-Windows 32bit platforms.

A note about External plugins: The native Innovate MTS (LM-2) driver checks each COM port on the computer to determine if any Innovate devices are connected. This action can slow the Logger's startup when the plugin is loaded. If you do not need the support of the Innovate MTS (LM-2), I suggest moving that plugin item out of the RomRaider\plugins directory to stop it from loading. Actually this can be done for any External plugin that you don't use in your setup.


Please download it and give it a workout!

If you have problems with the Download page here's a temporary link to the Windows Setup from a separate source.

Always nice with updates :)

Did really looking forward to the live timing adder. That is a great tool when tuning for power on a dyno. But when i connect to my ecu (A4RN200H) i can only remove timing? :/ Then the feature is almost useless when tuning. Since the most of tuners start safe at low timing and add timing until the car knock or dont make any more power.

The Ecutek version of the PSI3 is able to add and remove timing, idle rpm, rpm limit and add/remove fuel ++ live.

The stock ECU only allows for timing retard, no advance. The "others" may have modified the ECU code to remove that limitation.

You could start with timing 5° advanced and step this to -5° and slowly edge up to 0°. Not optimal but it would work the same.

I have not followed the code thoroughly with regard to this retard setting so I don't know how or if a value other than 0 would influence other maps, such as rich fuel for instance... you will need to test thoroughly.

I see :) The Ecutek display does check if something Ecutek calls user tune is enabled in the ecu when it boots.

http://www.ecutek.com/Products/Features ... uning.aspx

I have some Ecutek 16bit roms with the user live tuning feature enabled. If someone want to take a look on the code send me a PM :)

Yes, why ever ?

I tryed from differend locations and IPs: Netherlands, Germany (at office, at home)
Evertime the same problem: (see screen shot)

Thanks for that dropbox link :D
Can I give it to others, if they got the same problem with downloading ?

btw.:

DTC reading and logging works great on EURO4 and EURO5 diesel ECU :D

just on little improvement for one of the next relases:

a button for deleating DTC / resetting ECU in the DTC-window would be nice.
(pressing F7 during displaying the DTC doesn ´t work :oops: )

After pressing the button and deleating the DTC an automatic re-read to display all DTC are gone (or displaying permanent DTC) will be fabulas..

Sure.
And I'll see if Assembla can look into the problem.

While on the DTC screen you cannot use any other RomRaider features, you need to dismiss the screen first. I can look at adding the Reset option to the display though. But a re-read does not seem useful as you need to power off the ECU to complete the reset procedure.
Other than a Reset I'm not sure how to clear DTC via SSM. The only way I know of clearing DTC without a reset is via ODB-II scanner.

Are the SSM commants simular to CAN / K-Line, only the protocoll as the physical layer is differned ?

If yes, I will try to sniff a diagnosic setion and see what workshop tool will send, if I want to deleate DTCs via SSM-tool, the next time I am able to..

Is there still a problem with the assembla website as I am unable to download the new Romraider version as well ?
Cheers

In my case, I think the problem is caused by old Internet Explorer7, witch I still use because of WinXP SP2 OS.

Try with Firefox, everything went well again.

I get more and more problems because of non updateting IP, so think I need to switch to Firefox..
(switch OS is not a alternativ to me)

I think they have problems with IE7 & IE8 browsers only.
