Re: TTS4 on WIndows 10

The annoying thing though is that they have stopped developing it. A 64bit version, with the indexing fixed, and a few less oddities, would be delicious.

Re: TTS4 on WIndows 10

Thanks. I was slightly 'hoping' that a newer version had come along, but will backup the existing files, try this, and see what happens.

Best Wishes

Re: TTS4 on WIndows 10

A question.
ON the 'full install' download, is there a matching download for just the VR component?.

Have TTS4, has been running fine, but has started not being abole to run one of the VR rides. Wanted to just re-install the VR component to see if that would fix it.

Re: Allocation for Boot Camp

Ideally have an external USB HD, and store the actual videos etc., on this. Otherwise if you have any number of videos, space will vanish fast... With the external drive you only need space for Windows, TTS itself and the actual ride records. A base install of W10, requires about 20GB of space. TTS4...

Re: TTS4 and NEO issues

Have to agree. My PC is a couple of feet 'forward' of my handlebars, but putting the ANT+ module directly into the PC, gave unreliable connections. Add a cable and put it about half way 'back' along the bike with a nice clear line of sight to the Neo, and it works fine. ANT+, is a short range commun...

Re: Google License and GPS Rides

It hasn't been improved at all. It was far better five or six years ago, before Google changed the way this is handled.
It is still a useful tool if you want to rehearse a particular ride, but whether this is worth the fee, depends on how much you need to do things like this.

Re: Calculation Calories Calories vs TTS4

None, it is just a unit. A simple alternative really for WHr. 'Food calories' though are a very inaccurate unit, since they vary so much between individuals. Using them except as a very rough guide, is really as useful as a pine cone for forecasting the weather... I think the pine cone might be mor...

Re: Calculation Calories Calories vs TTS4

Yes, a lot of people will prefer to work in 'food calories'.
Generally multiplying by three is a fairly typical conversion.

The rest of the error here is in the estimation versus a relatively real actual measurement...

Re: Calculation Calories Calories vs TTS4

The Garmin figure is a figure for food use, not power delivered. You are typically perhaps 35% efficient at turning food into power (less if you are less fit). So 96 calories delivered as power will burn about 280 calories of food. The TTS4 system is measuring actual power _ delivered _, not what yo...

Re: TTS4 Crash

Unfortunately is is part of TTS4. TTS4 is writen as a 32bit application able only to address 2GB of RAM. It uses a Microsoft library to index it's files, and uses this incorrectly (not as recommended by MS), which results in a large amount of RAM being used as the rides are indexed. When the number ...

Re: TTS4 Crash

I've seen that crash when I had too many rides stored. I think this functionality uses quite a bit of RAM, so can trigger a problem before other things start showing issues.
Move some of the stored rides to another location.

Re: cadence

Agreed on the incorrect assumption.
If he crank length has reduced, it requires you to supply more force at the pedal to turn at a given cadence. If you can't supply this, then your cadence will reduce.

Re: cadence

Not directly.
Are you sure you got the cadence magnet correctly placed on the crank arm with the change?.
Similarly when doing it are you sure the detector didn't get moved?.
