GPRM: Delay a heat?

Post by Vitamin K » Mon Jan 12, 2015 8:16 am

Hypothetical question: Is there a way to delay a heat in GPRM for some reason, and then come back to run it at a later time?

For example, if we're allowing the scouts to stage their own cars, and one of them trips and drops their car and it needs 'surgery' at the pit crew table. Can I skip that heat and come back to it in a few minutes when the kid's had time to get the wheels back onto his car?

Absolutely. You can use the next/previous buttons or dropdown list to navigate heats. If the software is in the Ready mode, you do have to first hit the Escape key to get out of it.

I use this feature of GPRM if a car has an issue and needs repair. I simply skip the heat that car is in and run the next heat, giving the scout a chance to repair his car without stopping the entire race.
