ToS compliance

Arenanet will never officially endorse 3rd party tools, but this app is legal and safe to use. The app only reads the Game API through MumbleAPI, and displays this information as an overlay. If you want you can check the complete code, as the whole project is open-source.

Ghost Mode

The ghost3d.py app allows you to compete against your best time. This program plots your record logfile as a 3d object overlay so you can race against it.

You will need to create a logfile first (each time your timer starts, a log file is created), this program checks all the logs within the same folder. Check which ones are a full run, and load the best time.

If you want to force replay another logfile, just drag and drop the logfile into the ghost3d.py icon, the ghost will open with that file.

Multiplayer

This app allows you and your friends to compete against each one. There is no player limit for a race.

To play a match, follow this steps:

  1. On speedometer window, select your map and laps
  2. Write the same code as your friends in the textbox, for example 1111 or 12345 , or whatever you want
  3. Press join
  4. Press ready to check if your friends see you, you can free spam ready and surrender buttons
  5. One person press the start race, this button only makes a countdown at all racers and clear ready status to start the race
  6. The race wont start with coundown end, the race time start counting when you cross the first checkpoint.
  7. Each player has their own timer, so there is no problem if you start first or later.
  8. And final step, enjoy!
