    I thought the was a thread which briefly showed how, but I can't find it I'll look for it.


    In the meantime see attached example file from my folder C:\Users\joecar\Documents\EFILive\V8\Config (remove the .txt from the end of the filename).

    Code:
    [Groups]
    GLOBAL=Global Functions
    WO2SER=Wide Band O2 Sensors (Serial-Comms)
    WO2CAN=Wide Band O2 Sensors (CAN-bus)
    
    [GLOBAL]
    FUNCTION="Global Functions",factor,0
    
    [GLOBAL.FUNCTION]
    0=|-- GLOBAL.FUNCTION
    1=|function iff(x,y,z)
    2=|if (x) then return y else return z end
    3=|end
    
    [WO2SER]
    WO2BEN="Base Efficiency Numerator (Serial-Comms)(Dynamically-Leanest)",factor,3
    
    [WO2SER.WO2BEN]
    0=|-- WO2SER.WO2BEN
    1=|return iff(pid("WO2LAM1")>pid("WO2LAM2"),pid("WO2LAM1"),pid("WO2LAM2"))*pid("EQIVRATIO")
    
    [WO2CAN]
    WO2BEN="Base Efficiency Numerator (CAN-bus)(Dynamically-Leanest)",factor,3
    
    [WO2CAN.WO2BEN]
    0=|-- WO2CAN.WO2BEN
    1=|return iff(pid("WO2S11")>pid("WO2S21"),pid("WO2S11"),pid("WO2S21"))/pid("EQ_RAT")

    Hi Joe, which folder does this attachment reside, i put it in C:\Users\Andy\Documents\EFILive\V8\Config. I cant see the pids when i open V8 scan. I can manage calc pids in V7.5, need a push in the right direction

    Hi Joe, downloaded and moved your UserCalculatedpids.ini file to the said location, I dont see the calc pids show up up in the right hand pane nor the pid editor, i took some screen shots

    Why not just use the built in Calc PIDs editor?

    In the Scan Window, click the drop down arrow on the [Options] button and select "Calculated PIDs" (or just use the Ctrl+K hot key).

    Calc PIDs in data logs are updated instantly (when you close the calc pids editor, or click [Apply]) , no need to try and understand/edit the calc pid *.ini data files.

    Regards
    Paul

    Paul, you meant the down arrow on the [Config] button.

    Yes, the file UserCalculatedPids.ini correctly resides in that folder C:\Users\Andy\Documents\EFILive\V8\Config

    When you open V8 S&T, click Scan, look over in the RH pane (yellow) Available PIDs, expand Calculated, you should see your pids here.

    Yes, pretty much, as long as the syntax of the pasted code is correct...

    when editing the pid equation in V8, there is a button fx Test to check that the pid is correctly syntaxed.


    That button is also available if you double click on a pid in the green pane.
