Post OPCtheme boost-dial
on: January 11, 2018 (GMT)

Hello,
In my Opel Astra H OPC I have a NEXUS 7 inch-tablet (2013) integrated in the dashboard.
I installed Torque Pro and use the OPC-theme. It looks and works fantastic except one dial, the one for the (turbo)boost-function.
I want to see the negative values. Therefore I set the minimiumvalue to -1 and the maximumvalue to +2. Despite of the setting the minimuvalue of the dial stays at 0.
How can this be fixed?

Are you interested in Vacuum readings only?

For my son’s Crown Vic Interceptor I created
a custom pid using the MAP readings…

Long Name: MAP Vacuum
Short Name: Vacuum
Mode/Pid: Leave blank.
Header: Leave blank.
Min: 0.0
Max: 30.0
Scale: x1
Equation: 29.93-Lookup(Min((Val{Intake Manifold Pressure}*0.295300):29.93)::0=29.93)
Units: inHg
Diagnostic Start/Stop Command: Leave blank.

This assumes MAP is in kPaA and is available.

I would think your custom theme should
work with this since it avoids negative numbers.

Anyway, this is how I’m trying to create a vacuum gauge
separate from boost. (Even added properties text
lines to set the dialStartAngle/dialStopAngle to create
the classic look used in most manuals).

Long Name: MAP Boost
Short Name: Boost
Mode/Pid: Leave blank.
Header: Leave blank.
Min: 0.0
Max: 30.0
Scale: x1
Equation: Max((Val{Intake Manifold Pressure}*0.145038)-Baro():0.0)
Units: PsiG
Diagnostic Start/Stop Commands: Leave blank.

If MAP sensor is not available for vacuum…

Min([ff1202]:0)*-2.03602

for Boost…

Max([ff1202]:0)

Edited.

Hello Capp, thanks for your reaction, but I am not interested in the vacuum-values only. I prefer both the vacuum and boost-values in one dial. When I change the theme to ‘standard’ the boost-dial perfectly shows the values from -1 to +2. It’s just the OPC-theme where this problem occurs. And the OPC-theme is the only one I want, because it’s the right one for my car. So I hope it is a minor problem which easily can be solved…..

Hi!

It’s probably because the OPC theme changes the dial start/stop angles:

From:
https://torque-bhp.com/wiki/Themes

Dials which use the start and stop angles cannot show negative numbers on the dial itself (but the number value will still be visible on the actual dial face). This limitation will probably be removed in future updates

(I haven’t got around to doing this yet, so at the moment, using the theme limits your ability for this)

Could the OP edit the properties.txt to add
dialStartAngle and dialStopAngle to zero
for that display only?

dialStartAngle_ff1202=0
dialStopAngle_ff1202=0

Hello piemmm, the problem is clear and I’m looking forward to your solution. For now it’s a minor issue, so I’ll be patient.
Thnx.

Hello Piemmm,

Can you tell me if my issue in the boostdial of the OPC-theme already has been fixed?

Thanks.
