    I got it to run on my work computer. Great job, thanks Bluecat!

    Any chance you can quickly explain the offset, factor, up, and down settings? Those seem to affect the shift points, but knowing the intended meaning may make them clearer.

    Thanks for the tool!

    Hold the cursor over each and a popup gives you a bit of an explanation.

    Odd. I tried to mouseover a few times and it never worked for those fields. Now it does. I must be losing my mind.Thanks, it's all crystal clear now.

    The only thing that needed clarification was the "factor," which I had to map the extremes to fully understand. If I'm correct, it looks like it tunes the slope of the aggressiveness ramp. To explain it best:

    factor's effect on upshifts:
    At the lowest level, it is very linear. If the throttle is X%, the upshift shift rpm aggressiveness is X%. When you bump the factor, the aggressiveness ramps in quicker and moderate to heavy throttle begins to hold gears longer. For example, instead of needing 90% throttle to hold the gear until redline, 75% throttle will do it. Lower throttle under 50% isn't affected as much, but the moderate throttle positions hold gears longer. Higher gear shifts appear to be affected more than the lower shifts. I accelerate hard, but rarely flog it WOT, so this factor is of great importance to me.

    factor's effect on downshifts:
    Factor doesn't seem to affect downshifts as much as upshifts, but it does have the same general effect. It looks like it will downshift more willingly, but the overall slope is similar regardless of factor. I'd say the factor doesn't affect downshifting as much as it does upshifting. Like upshifts, factor seems to affect higher gears/highway downshifting more than low gears.

    Overall, it looks my stock G8 tables falls someone near the middle of this 1.0-2.5 scale. I've tried the 1.0 factor, and the car is very linear and responsive, but feels like it requires more throttle than stock in order to downshift. On the highway, it doesn't like downshifting. So everything suggests that the 1.0 setting is lazier than stock, with stock probably falling closer to a 1.75 or 2.0. My guess is that the program's scale is "lazy/soft" to "moderately aggressive", so it's relatively safe to experiment with this factor value.

    Let me know if I'm wrong on any of that. I just wanted to write my thoughts down to share. The more I play with this program, the more I realize how well written it is. He's taken great care to make it user friendly and to minimize the risk of breaking things.

    I unistalled 4.0 and installed 3.5 and it works! Now I just need to figure out how to use it, . Thanks again!

    Thanks for putting this together BC!

    Having a small issue, not sure if it's the Generator or a setting my end, a couple of the fields are 90% hidden...

    Can't resize or maximise it so I can see them.

    Thats likely due to your screen resolution settings.

    Thanks Jamie, thought it might have been...

    Won't open on my Laptop at all so guessing it might be the 4.0/3.5 issue there, just wondering if I were able to maximise it or even resize that might allow me to see all the fields.

    <edit> Just tried every resolution from 1280/786 to 1680/1050 reopening the software at each stop and no change.

    <edit2> It's the "Medium" Text size I'm using that causes the issue, oddly enough it trashes the desktop gadgets as well...

    <edit3> "Use Windows XP style DPI scaling" is what causes the squashed display, untick and solved!

    Great little program, im going to give it a try in A4, However is there any chance of being able to edit the X & Y factors.

    To something like follows:
    Labels 1 2 3 4 5 6
    6.3 0 0 0 0 0 0
    12.5 0 0 0 0 0 0
    18.8 0 0 0 0 0 0
    25.0 0 0 0 0 0 0
    31.3 0 0 0 0 0 0
    37.5 0 0 0 0 0 0
    43.8 0 0 0 0 0 0
    50.0 0 0 0 0 0 0
    62.5 0 0 0 0 0 0
    68.8 0 0 0 0 0 0

    When doing importing labels like this manually it crashes the program.

    The import of table axis data from clipboard is a feature of my data grid view software, not really meant to be used by this software. I need to add a provision to remove it from the right click menu. The size and delimitation of the tables is meant to be non adjustable. Never thought about having editable axis, since every modern gm controller uses the same tps graduation.

    I think there are a couple of extra gears shown in the shift rpm configuration tables.

    Correct, although not used for functional gear shift, that data is just there to show what your top speed would be in your final gear. But is not used for any up shift calculation or such since there is no next gear.

    I'm trying to find a sweet spot for my 2005 5.3 truck with TCC unlock versus downshift...the spread of only 1mph seems too tight for me...when I'd like it to just unlock to pull up a steep grade at say 70-75mph it usually winds up downshifting instead, I'm currently trying 4. Just thought I'd ask what others may have tried?

    I'm also not entirely sure what the Lead function does. I see how it's affecting the shift speeds, and to a lesser extent the TCC, but I was curious if you could explain what it's there for so I can understand how to use it better.

    Thank you for the software though, it's really above and beyond to give this to us.
