=====
I was gonna wait until I add a "What-If" feature to the tool, but I learned that somebody's selling this tool for profit. It's also the reason why I created a new thread instead of adding to the existing thread I had for this tool, as I want to emphasize that the tool is free, if it isn't obvious enough.

Anyway, here are the added features:

1) Comparison Feature: Added Left and Right Values (or Left and Default Values) to the result:

I've been doing some retrofit and I thought it would be great to see the difference between two files easier and quicker.

2) Synchronized Window Panes. Scrolling left pane will make the right scroll too, and vice-versa. It's not perfect since Treeview control don't expose the scroll event but pretty close.


Finally, added this screen. It has no functional value whatsoever, except discourage selling the tool.

Not a Nag screen and will disappear as soon as any buttons are clicked.

Edit: Added attachment. Rename to "*.zip"/remove ".pdf" to extract

Tokenmaster, maybe a short guide to your software would be helpful (and vital) for those who are new to coding (and dummies :) )

Technical writing is never one of my strength LOL. The closest you can find to documentation is the old thread: http://www.bimmerfest.com/forums/showthread.php?t=724259

The tool is very user-friendly, however and tooltips are plenty - to compensate for lack of documentation.

Coming Soon: New Feature

I've started working on a new feature I'm calling "What-If FA-CAFD". What it is, in a nutshell, is a coding guide which I hope would help a lot of us.

"What if I add 6WA, what would E-Sys do to my NCD?". "If I add 6NS, then..." You get my drift. This is entirely based on what's inside FA and CAFD. Based on your chosen FA, car series and build date, the tool analyzes your selected CAFD (or NCD) and list down all affected functions (non-default only) and what the value should be.

In early alpha stage. Comments, recommendations, criticism welcome.



There's a big reason why I'm adding this feature. But this is not the time for that.

Very nice, you managed to do it:thumbup:

If you change to different build level, will it show the changes?
Build Level dictates what (Salapa) options are available, so yes, the list will change. Due to the sheer number of available options, this may not be noticeable though. And of course, everytime an option is changed, including series and build level, it needs to be calculated. Calculation takes a few seconds, not overly long.

The way it works right now is it relies on CAFD (or your NCD). CAFD contains the required FAFP ID and the car series it applies to. Now, this is where it became a little bit inconsistent. In series mapping, F20s and F30s are mapped to F020, although you can clearly see it uses different FAFP for F20 and F30. In CAFD, this is clearly delineated, meaning, F020 maps to F020 and F030 to F30s. I like the way CAFD does it and wish it was like that everywhere.

Also, FAFP does not discriminate between "codeable" and "non-codeable" options, i.e., you'll see "Light Allow Wheels" as available option and not surprisingly, CAFD will have functions related to it. Of course, it's pure trash but that's the way it is.

It is great work. I can be an alpha tester.
I don't have a close group of alpha testers. Everyone gets the same version at the same time when it's available. If you noticed, even the latest version is still "Alpha" build :)
