File system changes and synchronising
All files and settings can now be stored on the device. This means settings, mappings and layouts are moved with the device when it is plugged into another PC. Each time the device is plugged into a new PC, the data on the device will have to be syncronised with that PC.
When a device on the old file system is connected to the new version of UGT Manager you may optionally convert the device to use the new file system (layouts->update filesystem). This will take about 10 minutes and will copy layouts, mapping and settings to the device. After this first update the device files will be checked for changes on startup of UGT Manager which takes 10-20 seconds.
Additional “special” layouts have been added. These are layouts 500+ and are accessed via the layout generator by clicking “special layouts” at the top. These layouts display specific information for a few seconds during a sim and include layouts for: engine mode, brake bias, tyres, fuel, wing, driving aid, traction control, ABS, stability assist and pit lane. The display settings (ie time displayed on the screen) for these layouts can be edited in general settings or game specific settings.
To get the background images for these layouts on your device after the update, you will need to open and close the layout generator. Once you exit the layout generator, you will be asked to upload the layouts (takes about 10 minutes).
Special layouts currently work in IRacing and Assetto Corsa and F1 2019.
Corsa. Layouts which display hybrid information can be downloaded from
the following page. layout-downloads
largely for testing purposes. This is a feature which will be
completed and released at a later date.
