Triple Screens

I've purchased a new video card and 3 matching monitors in order to get iRacing up and running in a triple screen setup.

I knew that it would be an improvement, but oh boy I didn't fully comprehend just how awesome running iRacing at a 143 degree field of view would be.

One side effect was that I could not longer use my iRacing Session Info application in the same way I had in the past. Previously I ran iRacing in windowed mode on my main screen and other applications on my 2nd screen; Session Info, iSpeed.

I didn't want to be alt-tab'ing in and out of the iRacing application rather than warming up before a race, so I worked out a solution.

As you can see in my photo above, I have my android phone attached to the center of my steering wheel and display the speed delta and fuel info from iSpeed on it. I now also use an android app called Remote Launcher which I use to run a batch file that executes my Session Info app. When it finishes collecting all the data from the website it plays a wav file letting me know. Session Info now includes a feature to output to a html file and I run a simple webserver on my PC called Mongoose which allows me to load up that html file on my phone and check all the info out.

I'm doing final testing on all this at the moment and as soon as I'm confident it is all super solid I'll update my Session Info page with the new version and details.
