Hi,
Thank you.
What does joker lap means?

Track tools updated: http://www.worldracingseries.net/?page=downloads

- updated TrackEd:
  -- restored the command-line merge of the centerline
  -- updated the bestline generation to the latest replays format
  -- added support for checkpoints on the start area and joker lap lines, too
  -- added the generation of the check lines ( needed for GP Bikes beta9 and MX Bikes beta5 )
- when the same texture is applied to both the diffuse and opacity channel ( usually to view the transparency in 3dsmax ) multi-mapping is no longer generated
- changed the default shadowmaps scale from 0.4 to 0.2
