another .far file question

I'm also interested in how you decoded the .far files. I've been searching the internet for info on .mpower files for ages and this post is literally the only place I've found any info their structure. Now that I've unzipped them I have to figure out the .far files which according to all of my searches are either audio files or something to do with The Sims. Neither of those seem right to me. It looks like you've figured them out and any help would be really appreciated. Thanks in advance.

Ditto.

Exported the .mpower file from the App via Email, then Unzipped it.

Now I have a folder full of .far files:
- acceleration.far
- acceleratorPedal.far
- brakeContact.far
- consumption.far
- currentConsumption.far
- distance.far
- filteredAcceleration.far
- filteredLocation.far
- gear.far
- location.far
- locationExtended.far
- metadata.plist
- rpm.far
- speed.far
- speedRecord.far
- steering.far
- vehicleType.far
- waypointStartCrossing.far

How do I then convert these to a data file Dashware or RaceRender can use?

I went mid-June and labour day weekend in 2015 - CDN$ has been crappy so I haven't signed up for any yet but most likely around the same time frame

My work schedule is a PIA, so I have to plan way in advance. I haven't been to the ridge yet, so I am looking forward to it!

Haven't been paying attention here the last few months but if anyone needed help decoding their M-Laptimer PM me - you will need to be comfortable running something on the command line on a Mac. On a PC you will need to know how to run a PERL script because PC doesn't come with PERL interpreter

I have been tinkering with the hexdumps of the .far files for several days now, would you mind sharing your scripts to decode those .far files.
