NCD / CAFD Tool V0.2.5 Alpha

Update: 4/13/2014 V0.2.5 Alpha
  • Added "What-If FA-CAFD" feature
  • NCD/CFAD Comparison tool now excludes "Comments"
  • Minor bug fixes

This is a direct drop-in replacement. If you have customized settings, just replace the executable to keep your settings intact. Settings are kept in NcdCafdTool.exe.Config file.

What-If FA-CAFD

This feature uses ncd file or CAFD file for input. If you use *.ncd, the tool will use the version of CAFD used to generate your ncd file, meaning the CAFD associated with your current I-Step. Opening CAFD allows you to use any version.

FAFP will be retrieved from CAFD and any main series not used by CAFD will be excluded. Selected Build Level will control available options.

You can quickly find an option by selecting an item, then typing it in, e.g. 6WA, 6NS...etc.

Results are determined by a particular CAFD and not every option will have an effect on the selected CAFD. Don't select any options that obviously don't have any code associated to it, e.g. 130, 23B

Results are meant to be use as a guide only. They are by no means authoritative or definitive. Verify and use at your own risks.

Lastly, this tool is free. Never pay anything for this tool.

Thank you, TokenMaster!
It's very nice!

I hope the next step will be "What-If FA-All CAFDs from SVT"

And please add K-words and E-words to SALAPA options if you can.
This was my initial intention, read from SVT. With all the ground works laid out, this shouldn't be too difficult. SVT contains specific CAFD, so it's just as many iterations as there are CAFDs in there. Just have to watch out for memory usage.

Nice observation on the E-Wort and Ho-Worts. I did leave it out on purpose, but will look at it again.

This feature is not meant to do that. It's designed to work with standard feature the way BMW thinks it should work, not the way we want it to work.

Having said that, I asked for the ncd file from vithy. But even after I find all necessary parameters, it's not guaranteed to work as things like firmware will be a major factor. It was so much easier with HU_ENTRY. NBT is a different beast altogether so much so that things that did work on ENTRY/CHAMP/CIC may or may not work on it.

Sweet!

It would also be nice to be able to load a cars' FA into the FA/CAFD and SVT / CAFD SALAPA list. Loading the FA would automatically select the cars option list in cases where there are multiple dependencies.

Then when checking/unchecking an item would show the affected coding values based on the actual cars setting, not just the the few option names selected.

Or, am I missing the concept here?

I'm so entrenched into my OSX project that I forgot about this one.

Anyway, that's exactly how it should have been from the get-go, but when I looked at the options, it became too overwhelming to be useful. For instance, adding 522 (Xenon) alone produced a very long list from 3 ECUs. Of course, you can still select as many options as you want, if you don't mind going through the list. I think, to be successful in determining dependencies for options with certain degree of accuracy, I'd need to add KIS db into the fray. I'm avoiding KIS as there's no good .NET library for HSQLDB (KIS DB engine).

NCD / CAFD Tool V0.2.6 Alpha

Update: 7/14/2014 V0.2.6 Alpha
  • Added "What-If SVT-CAFD" feature
  • Minor bug fixes

This is a direct drop-in replacement. If you have customized settings, just replace the executable to keep your settings intact. Settings are kept in NcdCafdTool.exe.Config file.

I've been sitting on this version for months and I can't think of anything else to add.

What-If SVT-CAFD

This feature uses your SVT, instead of individual NCD files, for input. CAFD file version associated with your current I-Step, will be determined automatically from SVT file.
FAFP will be retrieved from CAFD and any main series not used by CAFD will be excluded. Selected Build Level will control available options. If multiple ECUs are affected by a particular option, all CAFDs pertaining to these ECUs will be listed.

You can quickly find an option by selecting an item, then typing it in, e.g. 6WA, 6NS...etc.

Results are determined by a particular CAFD and not every option will have an effect on the selected CAFD. Don't select any options that obviously don't have any code associated to it, e.g. 130, 23B

Results are meant to be use as a guide only. They are by no means authoritative or definitive. Verify and use at your own risks.

Lastly, this tool is free. Never pay anything for this tool.
