Hi, I have found this nice project  that can count lap times while you’re driving rc cars or drones or even karts. This project has been written in old RealStudio and I am here to find someone who will be able to provide me old RealStudio for linux or, if this is not possible, to help me run this project on latest Xojo.
I have asked Thomas, owner of http://www.tempel.org, and he gave some advices, how to fix a few error in the beginning opening project in Xojo but there are some others, probably not so difficult to solve, but for me quite hard to solve as for a beginner…
His answer attached below… thank you Tomas!
There are files missing, and incorrectly named:
a) when Xojo looks for FlipSideDB.xojo_code, you have to point it to FlipSideDB.rbo instead.
b) when Xojo looks for Build Automation.xojo_code, you have to give it a dummy “Build Automation.rbbas” from some random Xojo project.
There are syntax errors that recent Xojo IDEs trip over. They are easily pointed out and fixed, though (mainly it’s removal of same illegal property presets, and a missing empty Constructor() method in the “theme” class.)
Then there’s some internal error the Xojo IDE trips over, and which only gives some useless error msg that does not let me figure out what it doesn’t like. At this point I gave up.
I could, however, open the project in an older RealStudio (2012r2.1) IDE and run it on a Mac.
If you have a license for an older version you can access the downloads to versions you have licenses for here:
The mysterious IDE error can be fixed by using a new Listbox. Drag in a new Listbox, copy over all the properties, and delete the old one. This is one of those super fun RealStudio > Xojo project problems.
the listbox just change the initial value to NOT have an extra return at the end
that causes one of the the problems with it
still requires debugging but here’s one that should open in 2017r2.1

thank you for this, I didn’t find it just by browsing xojo website… If I have right informations, the Linux version was free according to project documentation : http://www.flipsideracing.org/projects/fslapcounter/ - To run the Flip Side Racing software on Linux download the source code and compile the software using RealBasic’s free Linux IDE
To this should be enough…

thanks a lot, I will try it.
I think that it necessary to be able to open it in latest xojo for further development. I will try it and post results to original author.
