Logging through RomRaider

Hi, I am having a hell of a time getting Romraider to recognize the cable and ECU for logging. Please take a look and see what I am doing wrong.

This is how I keep the folder with the logger and definitions files
http://forum.e46fanatics.com/attachm...5&d=1465082625


I open RomRaider and these messages pop up for the dyno feature. I have this doc but do not know where to put it so that it recognizes it. I dont think I even need this feature though.

I try setting my definitions file to its location(same folder).
http://forum.e46fanatics.com/attachm...8&d=1465082724

Have my settings set as such
http://forum.e46fanatics.com/attachm...9&d=1465082759

But the Logger still wont recognize the cables I have for some reason, and no com port connection is made. I have tried multiple cables. Cal ID and ECU ID are always unknown and "connection could not be made".

I have used romraider in the past on subaru's and never had this issue.

Thanks

I have cars_def.xml, logger.xml, and the version317 definition xml all in the same folder. Then go to Settings > Logger Definition Location and browse to that folder and select the v317 file.

As far as connecting to the car I had to change the connection protocol for mine.

Try Settings > Select Logging Protocol Options > DS2 > K-Line

I am just getting Romraider running on my winXP comp, is there a good write up for connecting to the car? I am unsure how to get the DME image copied or find a current m54b30 car definition file

So is 1 query per 1500 ms the best we are going to get via K-line? Any options for logging with higher resolution?

With modified Com port settings and a minimum number of parameters logged I got it to around 1 query / 120ms or about 8.3 queries per second. Anyone doing better than this? This is logging load, RPM, AFR, and TPS.

it will log 25+ commands at 8 per second if you select a single group. All those marked with * at the beginning are the first group.
