Description

NFSHS CARP Generator by AJ_Lethal

____________________________________________________


A spreadsheet tool that can help you to generate a CARP.txt file from scratch.

____________________________________________________


Requirements

------------

Either

-Libreoffice 7.x or later

-MS Excel 2019 or later

___________________________________________________


Usage:

-----------

-Open either the MS Excel version (.xltx) or the OpenDocument version (.ots)

-There's also a macro-enhanced version of the OpenDocument version (works only on LibreOffice), allowing automated CARP importing and exporting; make sure to allow macro execution in your LibreOffice options. It's labeled a beta because of a couple of bugs (namely imports can't be undone, however you can use the Clear Fields button to reset all fields), but it should work fine.

-Fill in the required data in the Main sheet

-If you need to find info on your car's performance there are a couple of places that could be useful for data, such as:

-Car magazines

-The manufacturer websites

-automobile-catalog.com

-Carfolio.com

-if everything else fails, pray to Saint Google

-You can also use CarTest to obtain stuff such as acceleration times, torque curve, etc. from car data as well. You can get here at:

-https://www.beretta.net/goodie_bin/cartest.htm

or

-https://archive.org/details/cartest_202106

-Since it's a DOS program you might need DOSBox to run it

-You can also import (most) of the data from an existing CARP.txt file. Just open the existing CARP with a text editor, copy the contents and paste it column A of the CARP Import sheet. Choose "comma" as separator as prompted.

-The imported CARP data will appear in the Imported CARP Values sheet, you have to copy and paste the data into the Main sheet from there

-Some steering values, opponent data and g-transfer factor won't be imported.

-There's also a FEDATA compare data calculator, it's not 100% accurate but it's close enough.

-When you're done go to the Generated CARP sheet, select the A column and copy it. Then paste it in Notepad and save it as CARP.txt; from there you can import in your car.viv file with NFS Wizard or any other VIV utility.

-There's also the option to generate upgrade CARP files, just enable them in the Main sheet and fill the fields accordingly; then copy the B/C/D columns into new text files and save them as CARP1.txt/CARP2.txt/CARP3.txt


-Since the files are in template formats you can save your CARP setups separately.

    What did you use to create this file?

    It gives me warnings about corruption.

    Then, the file is messed up and with mass errors (no graphs too) when I try to open it with 3 different generations of MS Excel.

      I made the file in LibreOffice 7.1.5; I recommend using LibreOffice 7.x or MS Office 2019 onwards to open the file.

    MS Excel 2019 cannot open this properly :hmm:

    Can you save it to some other format, or... I don't know...

      I uploaded an updated version that comes in both .xlsx and .ods formats, the .xlsx version should work just fine.

    You can use Google Docs in case you don't have Office/LibreOffice installed.

    It may be cool to mimic the High Stakes theme, but please get back the previous theme or include both. :pray: When I open it, with the latest Excel, it don't look like the screenshot at all. It is a mess of white and dark theme, with hard to read black text on very dark blue background (for example). :cry:

      Text color issue should be solved, "automatic" color seems to work slightly different between LO Calc and MS Excel
