HOWTO: Export/import into my timing software

    General notes:

  • None of the timing software checkes for duplicate entries, so importing more then once can create a large number of entries that sometime's have to be removed one at a time.
  • TEST the import before the big race.
  • Be familure with your timing software so if their are any issues, it doesn't create any delays. I have watched many race directors struggle with new software and create unnecessary delays for hundreds of racers. Very uncomfortable.
  1. Autoscore
    • Use the "Create Aliases for Class Names" so that the class names exported from www.wheretoracerc.com match exactly what you have setup in your Autoscore installation.
    • They must match EXACTLY, including any leading/trailing spaces (bad idea anyways) and case sensitive. This is the number one reason it will not work.
    • Test it BEFORE the big race. I cannot emphisize this enough. If it doesn't work, send me an email or call me and we can get it working.
    • www.wheretoracerc.com exports a file called "racers.txt" transfer this file to your computer running Autoscore if it is not the same computer.
    • You can save it anywhere on that computer, just remember where you saved it.
    • From within Autoscore, from the top menu select:
      1. Database
      2. Import Racer Data
    • If everything went right, your racers are now in your Autoscore database. You still need to add them to your race, arrange heats etc.
  2. RcScoringPro
    • There is a 20 character limit to class names and certain characters are not allowed. Slashes are one of them like 1/10th would not work.
    • Setup your RC Scoring Pro class names first within RC Scoring Pro!
    • Use the "Create Aliases for Class Names" so that the class names exported from www.wheretoracerc.com match exactly what you have setup in your RcScoringPro installation.
    • Test it BEFORE the big race. I cannot emphisize this enough. If it doesn't work, send me an email or call me and we can get it working.
    • www.wheretoracerc.com exports a file called "racersexport.txt" transfer this file to your computer running RcScoringPro if it is not the same computer.
      • There are two file type options for the delimiter:
        • Vertical Bar "|" which is the most common and the one you should try first.
        • Comma "," if vertical bar doesn't work, try this one.
        • Doug with RcScoring Pro can verify which version you have.Super Monster Truck
        • If the delimiter is different then either of those two, replace it in the link in the address bar!
    • Save the file in your RC Scoring directory, the default location is
      • c:\RC Scoring\
    • From within RcScoringPro:
      1. Reports tab
      2. More tab
      3. In version (version 4-12-2006 ): the button to push is:
        1. "Import ROAR Nats Javiar/Ruben"
          • Your installation, the button may vary.
          • If nothing appears to happen, DONT press it again, it probably worked.
        2. Click on the Drivers tab.
        3. Click on the "Add a new Racer" button, the driver list should populate!
        4. You can delete the blank racer you just created also.
      4. In version (version 1-18-2007 ): the button to push is:
        1. "Import Racers"
          • Your installation, the button may vary.
          • It will bring up dialog for file to import:
          • Select the file you saved before "racerexport.txt"
          • It will tell you how many racers imported.
          • Optional if your feeling lucky, click on "ROAR Nats Enter All into Race" This will negate the next three steps.
        2. Click on the Drivers tab.
        3. Click on the "Add a new Racer" button, the driver list should populate!
        4. You can delete the blank racer you just created also
    • If everything went right, your racers are now in your RcScoringPro database. You still need to add them to your race, arrange heats etc.
    • Version 3-12-2007 Has a bug where it looks for a field seperated by a comma after the "Name" field.
  1. rctiming.com Laps Free
    • rctiming.com doesn't use class names, they use number 0-30.
    • Use the "Create Aliases for Class Names" and put in the appropriate number for the classes you have setup in your installation of rctiming.com Laps Free.
    • www.wheretoracerc.com exports a file called "rctiming_drivers.csv" save this file to your computer running Laps Free.
    • From within Laps Free
      1. Use the Edit button
      2. Then "Import From CSV"
      3. Browse to where you saved the "rctiming_drivers.csv" file.
      4. Select the file to import.
    • If everything went right, your racers are now in your Laps Free driver database. You will still need to add them to heats, create races, etc.
