What Weekly needs

  full name of your league and its abbreviation
  fps you use
  start time of qual
  league timezone (GMT+/-)
  title of your championship/s (if any)
  list of your races with track names
  number of laps and qual time per events
  title or car restriction of your races (including mod info)
  or a link where I can find all of these info :)


What you need

Server replay or your own replay which was saved after race session ended in GPL.

Martin Granberg's latest GPL Replay Analyser. It's the 7.9.1 beta2. Please double-check if you have this version installed. If not you can download it from this SRMZ forum post. It still lacks F2 and CA mod support, so those reports will need a bit of workaround.

Martin Krejcirik's latest RPY dump utility. You can download it from the official website. Use this when you have to report CanAm/F2/1955 results.


How to report


Click to enlarge

GPLRA-way Open one lap of the replay in GPLRA then click "Reports"/"Complete report (all above)". This will generate a TXT file which should be named like "LEAGUE YYYY-MM-DD TRACK MOD.txt" – for example "Groundhog 2015-11-08 Monza 1967.txt".

RPYdump-way for 1955, F2 and CanAm events In rpydump-0.6.1-win32 version select "semikv" format, replay file and the related cst file. Mark "output to file" and click Run.

Report file will be saved in your replay folder in both case.

Then visit the Race info page and look for Upload results link. This opens a panel where you can upload the report file. If the upload is successful you should see a plain white page with the table of results.

During this process Weekly code reads out all necessary data from the report file, and checks driver names too. All mod related characters (like 65, GT, etc.) is cut from the names. Drivers may use funny player name alias/es, but with real names the news and the results look better :) If you still see strange letters or a driver with different names, just tell in Reporters topic and it will be correct in the database.

From Nov 29, 2016, you can upload RaceGraphic2.png files too. You need to generate full report site in GPLRA.


Features

League page: You can add new season. Please note that the most of the time league names are also listed beside season names. So (for example) it's enough to name a season as 'Friday Trophy' - UKGPL will always be visible somewhere on the page. For championsip IDs, keep it simple and short - but it should always contain the abbreviation for your league. Once you add a season, it's instantly visible as a smart rank on CRank and displayed with its ID.

Season page: You can edit season details and add races. Event titles/notes are quoted in race report titles. It might look odd when title contains track name or season name which are also displayed.

Race info page: You can edit race details. You can't edit race details once the event has results uploaded. You can re-upload the results on Race info page and on Results page too.

Track feedback: Admins and reporters can send feedback about track problems on Results pages. Look for “Track feedback“ button. Feedbacks are listed and could be edited later on a Feedbacks page here.


Scoring systems

When you add a new season to your league, you can choose one of these scoring systems. OR you can send me yours, and I will see if that works with Weekly ;)
