Td5 Map editing tools: TunerPro

I've been using Luca's Td5 Map Editor to view map information as I work on the ECU code disassembly for the past 12 months or so, and it's been a useful tool for that purpose.  However I've recently got to the point where Td5 Map Editor's map descriptions are quite different to how I'm thinking about code flows and operation. It's got to the point where I need to have to mentally over-ride the map descriptions every time I look at a "known" table.

I'd looked at Tuner Pro months ago and pushed it into the "not going to work" basket, but after reading the documentation on creating definintion files it looks like it might be useable. The big advantage for me is that I can create and edit the map descriptions very simply. The draw back is the definition format is hard coded to specific map addresses, so a definition is tied to a specific variant map at best and a specific fuel map at worst. Even so I think the advantages outweigh the drawbacks for my own use.

I've also been able to setup the "EGR Delete" that I've discovered as a reversable patch which is pretty cool.  I'm yet to see any commercial remap using this trick and it is far neater and cleaner than the alternative of maxing out the EGR table. The delete sets a switch in the ECU config that results in the code that calculates EGR amount to be completely skipped.

We'll see where this leads....
