Re-Volt [RVGL] Car names at results screen?

What about adding the car names also to the results screen, and have it not only in the lobby overview and sessionlog file?
As well the fastet lap could be displayed (and added to the sessionlog file as well, which is not the case at the moment).

Here a bad photoshopped example. Don‘t mind the wrong font, and wrong fastet laps. It‘s only an example how it could look like.

The best would maybe be, to let the player decide, which informations he wants to see. (Settings in game or display option menu)

This would be a nice addition to multiplayer races. I'll look into it ;)

I want to push this topic, because when working on the RVGL Ladder in the last weeks, I had the idea to also display the fastest lap times in the Ladder event results. I could also give additional points ("Kudos") to the persons with the fastest lap times, which would be a very nice addition.

Would it be technically possible, to add the fastest laps to the sessionlog file?

For example in this format:
#,Player,Car,Time,Laptime,Finished
Example with fictional laptimes:
Version,"RVGL 19.0301a","P2P","Server"
Session,"03/11/19 21:04:34","KIWI","Arcade",3,"false"
Results,"Santorini",12
#,Player,Car,Time,Laptime,Finished
01,"ZIPPERZB","Pemto","01:48:546","00:30:526","true"
02,"MIGHTY","Pemto","01:52:094","00:32:200","true"
03,"LAGGEEROK","Pemto","01:53:760","00:30:546","true"
04,"KIWI","Pemto","01:56:219","00:32:586","true"
05,"SAFFRON","Pemto","01:57:730","00:30:265","true"
06,"GEROMU KERETEM","Pemto","01:59:875","00:32:986","true"
07,"URV","Pemto","01:59:991","00:31:500","true"
08,"FRIZK","Pemto","02:00:310","00:31:998","true"
09,"VLAD","Pemto","02:07:195","00:30:951","true"
10,"RAJ","Pemto","02:34:918","00:35:001","true"
11,"HUKI","Pemto","411:41:728","00:29:999","false"

It can be done, yes. It needs to be seen whether the current session parser script needs to be updated to support this new format. I'll try to look into this soon.

This would be a very handy feature to have. I'd love to see it in the ladder results, and it would be cool to have for most other events as well. If you end up adding it, send me some test session logs with the feature, and we'll check if it causes any issues with the session parser (and if it does, we should be able to do an update for it quick enough, if JohnCorl's available).

P.S.: I spoke with John and he says it should be okay, since the session logs make use of a versioning system. He should be able to push out an update for it, anyhow.
