I guess I could use it for smoothing, but then again I can use my brain power and determine a number between 45 and 49.

I find the 3D tables helpful on the dyno. Get the dot that says where the engine is at as far as load and RPM exactly on a vertex, move your dot to the same point, and then shift up-arrow or shift down-arrow to change the amount of fuel.

It makes load-tuning on the dyno much faster.

Help a newbie out, what functions can't it use?

How is the 3d map in TS different than the 3D maps under tuning in MT?

You guys think it would be too complicated to start out on? Seems like everyone is learning MT then switching to TS.

I would just start from TunerStudio. The layout is different, but it isn't any more "complicated" than MT.

Edit: The only thing I used MT for was the initial setup/build of my megasquirt. All of my tuning has been with TS.

Well, a new version dropped last night. On the msextra forums, Phin Tobin stated that he wanted to have it done in the next version, but he was having a hard time getting it bug free due to adding in MS3 stuff. Apparently its there, but hidden... and buggy. Hopefully the next full version release will have it. He is pretty good about putting out new versions ever month or two.

They aren't really... They're a bit nicer looking but that's about it.

Well, actually, using the MegaTune's 3D maps were a pain in the ***.

no matter which way you move the table around, moving around the cursor with the arrows keys doesn't seem to change, unlike TunerStudio. For example, I made my AFR table "flipped" so the lower the AFR's, the "higher" the hill goes. On megatune, if you were to do this, using the cursor key, going up would make the cursor go "down" on the 3D map. Really confusing.

Yeah, I think in that respect to each his own. I actually liked the MT way better as far as that went. The TS way works great until you get close to a rotation where neither direction makes sense. I think that's why Phil added the ability to do it the old way.

I don't generally flip my tables completely around though, I generally keep them oriented mostly like they start out when you load the dialog, only moving them to get a better view of the data.

As far as ms3 stuff, Phil has added a lot of stuff for us for ms3 that we couldn't do before.

Things like combined dialogs, etc... As soon as I'm done working on the ini tonight (adding some ITB load mode stuff, a special load calc just for ITBs that utilizes both TPS and MAP in a single table) I'll post it and you can see what I mean.

Unzip this and try it in TunerStudio. Let me know what you think.

Closed loop boost control is a function of the firmware not the tuning software.
