Hello all,

I have been speaking to the creator of the fantastic spotter software, Crew Chief:
https://forum.studio-397.com/index.php?threads/crew-chief-v4-5-with-rfactor-2-support.54421/

He tells me adding hundreds of names to the spotter's voice pack is very easy, and for the sake of immersion and functionality, I suggest we take full advantage of this.

To add your name to the voice pack, all you need to do is enter your name here (takes 1 minute):
https://drive.google.com/open?id=1fSq6UazCDspLFC2yWm859jvQrlNOgVTZ8isIgb1-JXI

He should have it in the software within a week.

P.S. This works with DX11.

UPDATE: His Google Drive link seems to have switched to 'view only', so please use this spreadsheet for now:

Is it possible to make it call me "Coin" rather than full name? :) I think I'd prefer that more as my real name is too much of a hassle to explain how to pronounce without it being awkward forever

Yeah, but ask him on his forum here:
http://thecrewchief.org/forum.php

Our spreadsheet is for surnames only because that's how the spotter will address other drivers. The pet name he calls you is down to you ;) So please add your surname to the list for the sake of other drivers.

Does anyone knows how to make crew chief to report things times, gaps etc. that got to do ONLY with my class? I am driving a GT car and it report times from the leader that is driving a Prototype. I searched but i can't find anything.

Mine reports gaps to the next guy ahead and behind etc and in class too. Even says if I have fastest lap in my class. Have you got the latest version? Have a look at the settings I altered mine slightly and get plenty of info when I need it

It's a bit late now. Karimah sounds like the way the Finnish google translate robot pronounced it, written phonetically in English. 'aa' could be pronounced a number of different ways.

Hello all.
I hope you're enjoying the new sound pack.

I am aware that there are many in the VLMS whose names were not included. The reason for this is that there's an overlap. Many VEC drivers also drove in the VLMS last season, and I wanted to avoid duplicates. I'm also aware that we are getting a lot of new drivers through the SRCA.

For that reason, I have made another tab on the spreadsheet to be filled in by ONLY NON-VEC drivers. If you entered your name in the last batch, you DO NOT need to enter it again.

In simple terms, go on the first tab (VEC S9 Pre-Le Mans) and ctrl + f to search for your name. If it isn't there, put it in the 'BATCH 2' tab.

The final entry on the first tab is WOODBURY. Please DO NOT add to the first tab; your name will not make it into the next voice pack if you do.

MAKE SURE YOU USE THE FIRST TAB AS A GUIDE TO ENTER YOUR NAME.

Diamond mars bar to the person who finds a way of filtering all the Non-VEC VLMS drivers so they can be batch-added easily.

On a separate note, please let me know if there's a serious problem with the way your name is pronounced.
For example, @Florian Koetz's name is pronounced "Curtis", when it should be more like 'Koetz', and @Lazaros Filippakos' name is "Lazaros", when it should be 'Filippakos'.

You can check your name here:
C:\Users\YOURUSERNAME\AppData\Local\CrewChiefV4\sounds\driver_names

@Zdenek Smarda Why have you changed your entry in the first tab? Please do not do this. It will achieve nothing except make maintaining the database harder. If you have a problem with the pronunciation of your name, post it here.
