    How to make a label file - can I do it?

    Can I make a label file or to the brilliant minds at Ross-Tech have to do that for me?

    I know I can edit one.

    If I can, are there instructions someone can point me to?

    Thank you!

    What module are you looking to make a label file for?

    The instructions for making a rudimentary one are in a file named 'template.lbl' in your labels folder.

    The engineering problems are likely insurmountable. It would be like proposing to land a rocket booster section on a barge floating in the middle of the ocean.

    Other question, since I am doing own label files; is there any way to submit labels to RT for further inclusion in upcoming releases/data versions?

    Sorry for highjacking, DicknNancy. I might be able to help you nevertheless. Feel free to post questions.

    E-mailing them to Support@RT would be best.

    I want a label file for my V10 engine for starters. I'll look over the template file for format.

    I guess I'm wondering how to collect the data to put in the file.

    Do we have a scan of your car somewhere? I'm guessing the label file you're looking for exists in German.

    I don't think you'd have a scan of my specific car, but if you have a scan of a BKW 7L6 2004 V10 engine in any language I'd take a crack at translating to english.

    Well here's the one I'm back to working on now and it has the scan for that. https://forums.ross-tech.com/showthr...559#post165559

    My other V10 is a BKW engine (working nicely thankfully )and I can post a scan for that also if needed.

    They are both 2004's so the same label file should apply I think.

    I did find the 7l-01.lbl redirection file but as you can see it does not include the 5.0L
