I just wanted to check in and see how things were going with an "Event Manager" Something that could handle different classes, qualifying and setting up mains. I know at one point you had through some ideas out there, where it would be a separate program. I just wanted to check in and see where you were at.

I know I have not mentioned much about this in a while but things have progressed slowly but surely. Some of the updates this year have been laying the foundation of changes I need in the application for event management piece. Some of these are not directly visible but instead programming restructuring and database changes in the background.

I was going down the route of a separate program but moved to having it integrated directly in the main program instead. I was duplicating too much effort in making it a separate program.

If I were to put a metric on it I would say I am probably about 40% done for the first release of this feature set. Not even going to guess on a deadline though as when I can invest time is always unpredictable.

thanks for the update, Just figured I'd check in and see where you were. As always the mini-z community appreciated your hard work with the timing software.

I've just started using Flip Side with an I-Lap system. An event manager, as described here, is the only thing I find lacking in the software.
Is there an update in regards to if this functionality will be included in a new release? It's the only thing stopping me from using the software for more than just practice.

Thanks!

At the moment work on this feature is on hold. I have another unannounced software project that I am working on instead. Once I have that complete enough I will resume working on the event manager stuff.

My plan is to have the other project done enough to release to the community by the end of the month and then I can go back to working on the lap counter software.

Any update on event manager? I'm new to the hobby and love your software. In my short time I've realized the event manager will be a great addition.

Thanks,
