Black and White Secondary Display

i saw an FAQ on how the coding is to be modified to achieve a black and white secondary monitor color scheme however the instructions seem very outdated. when editing the zround ini file, the code segments referenced in the FAQ could not be found in the configuration file.

has anyone else successfully modified the secondary monitor configuration coding to achieve a black and white with custom background scheme? does hot lap racer identification still use color to differentiate them from the rest of the field?

Hi,

If the key/value pairs don't exist on your zround.ini you can create them to override default values.

Please take a look to http://www.zround.com/wiki/doku.php/...colorsmonitor2.

The racer's best lap is still shown in green.

Regards.

All you have to do is to add the new keys on your existing monitor section (the case doesn't matter, I mean it is the same MONITOR, Monitor, monitor, ...).

Please follow these steps:

1) Open your text editor (i.e. Notepad)
2) Open the "zround.ini" file
3) Search the text "[MONITOR]" (ignore the cas). Only one line must be found
4) Add the keys documented in the wiki under the [MONITOR] line.
5) Save the file

Based on your message, your [monitor] section will look like this:

Code:
[MONITOR]
PausaMonitorPilotos=5
Numero=1
Estimacion=1
Piloto=1
Vueltas=1
Posicion=0
TiempoUltima=0
TiempoTotal=1

You have choosen a black & white theme with custom background from "c:\images\MyBackground.jpg". Remember set the full file name path of your ".jpg" background image file.

I used html-codes on the colors

http://html-color-codes.info/

ColorLetraMonitor=clBlack

is the same as

ColorLetraMonitor=$000000

So that I could "tweak" it to what I wanted. Just like it says in the wiki.

Is anything changed in v1.19 build 1?
I can't get the secondary monitor colors to work. Only default colors.
I fixed the logo, but the colors are not changed

I tried this this morning and the second monitor continues to open same as normal. I'm certain it's operator error.

Just published 1.20.9 release, now I'm working on 1.20.10 to include these settings on the "Colors" configuration page.

Update ready. v1.20.10

It is included a new tab to configure the Secondary Monitor.

I've added "Black and white" and "Defaults" buttons to set black and white colors and restore defaults.
