Final note for now: Please DO NOT post google translate links. This is per request of the Crew Chief developers. Write your name phonetically in English as in the first tab. It may help if you put the initials to your country - e.g. (UK) - next to your Surname entry.

Sorry, but i see link to Google Translator for others name and i thinks is good :) So sorry :)

So, ok, my name is: https://translate.google.cz/#cs/en/Šmarda Zdeněk

:-D Yes its hard :-D
Please understand that it is actually more realistic for the spotter to pronounce your name in an Anglicised way. It would sound very odd if he suddenly became fluent in another language. Therefore, I don't think there's a problem with the way your name is pronounced in Crew Chief.

I thought you correct names - but ok, I understand :)

Alright, I found a way in the end.

All License 3 and many License 4 and 5 holders are now in the voice pack.

Almost 500 SR.C members are now accounted for. Enjoy :)

Anyone whose names are missing (check C:\Users\YOURUSERNAME\AppData\Local\CrewChiefV4\sounds\driver_names), please fill a slot in the BATCH 3 tab, using the first two tabs as references. Changing the first two tabs will not get you anywhere.

https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1ctJKVSYYE2RmNesSmHGgT0G8dmf7M0haqjWSd97BMEw/edit?usp=sharing

If you don't have a license, you probably won't have an entry yet. If you have license 4 or 5, there's a chance you don't have an entry yet. It's worth doing a ctrl+f to search for your name in the first two tabs to check.

If you would like to add your first name to Crew Chief, you can request it here:
http://thecrewchief.org/forumdisplay.php?7-Names-and-personalisations

PLEASE DIRECT NEW SR.C MEMBERS HERE.

@Toni Ukic Why add yourself again? You're already in the voice pack. A ctrl+f on the first tab would have shown you that.

Hi all, small question in regards to the spotter plugin.

I noticed in a previous version it would tell me if a car is next to me, somehow it doesn't do that any more. Is that perhaps since i'm attending an online practice session and will it pan out when in the race?

I have looked through the setting menu but wasn't able to find the setting.

Not sure if this is still being monitored or taken into consideration. But I've just started using Crew Chief today after @Ben Willis introduced me to it and I've added my name to batch 3. :)

I'm afraid I cannot maintain the spreadsheets any more as I don't have time.

If someone else would like to continue my work, the procedure is to get all the names in the format you see on the spreadsheet and deliver them to the creator and voice of crew chief, mr_belowski, on the crew chief forums (http://thecrewchief.org/).

He then records the names and posts a message in the forums when he's finished. He then updates the application.

Ok, in that case, from the looks of things the "Batch 3" wasn't ever actioned. So this week I'll work on getting everything up to and including my name sent off for inclusion.

I'll then possibly look at handling this in the future but I'm not making any promises just yet!

Sod it, sent batch 3 off. If I've done that properly, I'll sign off the above-linked spreadsheet and look at potentially doing my own.

As an update. All names from the batch 3 sheet from my name and above have been added to Crew Chief now.

New Crew Chief Database Sheet in Use

I've decided to create a copy of Ed TJ's spreadsheet for future name updates. Please see the link below for the new sheet.

Reference the first sheet in the document to see if your name is already in Crew Chief as well as checking in C:\Users\<YourUsername>\AppData\Local\CrewChiefV4\sounds\driver_names\. If your name isn't already included, use the second sheet in the below document to add your name in the same format as seen in sheet 1.

I'll get the list of names sent off when I have time and when there are a decent number of names awaiting inclusion.

https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1OgHODYR6ueMRoQlBHb-KDNFJ8xl0vIzGUZsI-qgNTJs/edit?usp=sharing

Finally, thanks Ed TJ for doing this previously and if you ever want this job back, let me know! :)
