The key to success for a noob here is to ask specific questions.

I personally don't have time to do write-ups and I'm sure that's the case for most of us.

Op, ask specific questions, get a general understanding, take screenshots, post them and ask questions about them, repeat until you understand the whole process. Then you can post a DIY.

I can understand what you are saying.
And I understand the concept of what to do.
However doing it is another task all together. Especially when I have no Idea of how to "make a map"
Once I find the address from comparing to a similar file. And now I know, ok here is the address for the map in my file.

I am suppose to "make a map" or somehow define the location of this map. This is the part I don't understand.

I was able to find the top speed limit from a file and then found it in my .bin. But once I found it I was like. Humm great, how do I start to make a .ols and
tell it this new found information.

I can find map locations all day from comparing, but not knowing how to assemble a .ols is the problem.

I still don't understand your question then. How else are you going to enter in all the axis data?

Axis data? What is this axis data you speak of?

See I'm so far off knowing what to do, that's the problem.

WOW this just went full circle in a painful way.

massive thanks to those who take the time to answer questions repeatedly, continuously updating and supporting software to accommodate one 512mb vs. a 1024mb bin file, and explaining how to do all of this at CMD level. I'm finally getting past the intimidation of the casual mention of hex editing to match software to a device by manipulating the data at offset 5x9efffefffeffffef...

It just sucks when an f1torrents kind of user doesn't seem to want to put in the time reading, when so many of you have put in the time writing it down over and over and over again.

cheers

This was actually a massive help.
I didn't have the manual.
This is answering all of my questions.

Thanks
