    Hey all.

     

    I've started making a new project yesterday, that will help with the training of racer horses. It's a Windows program that will need to be run, and it will make you and your attached horse run in circle without doing anything thus gaining % to your horse. If anyone wants to try it out, please reply here or send IM inworld, and I'll make a first beta during this/next week. Thanks :).

     

    Requirements:

    - Windows OS

    - Racer Horse that is not level S / S

    - Any SL viewer

    - Some room in a sim to make your horse run in a circle

    More details what the trainer will do:
    1. You wear the racing HUD, attach the horse like normally and connect it to the HUD.
    2. Select either Speed or Stamina training, and then from this program you select the same.
    3. The program It will "pretend" that UP and RIGHT arrow keys on keyboard are pressed and send it to your SL viewer, that will then make you and the attached horse run in circle, thus training your horse.

    Difference between Speed and Stamina is that in Stamina it will also "press" the Page Down key every few minutes.

    When training the horse using this program, you just leave it running while doing other things. Of course, during this time your PC can't be used for anything else.

    Questions? Ask.

    Exactly Belle ;).
    Or if nothing else, just watch some TV.. :).
    Also if having multiple PC's laptops and alts for them, one could train horse on each of them at the same time.

    I should have the first version ready during this weekend if not earlier.

    Also, program requires .NET Framework 4 to run, so Windows XP, Vista, 7 and 8 are supported. Check that you have the Framework installed on your system.
    (Install all Windows Updates and remember to check the optional updates as well.)
