rFactor 2 Hud - SimHub 1.2

SimHub Overlay for rF2

  1. FinesseSteez
    Includes three versions, one each for 1080p, 1440p or 4K setups. To install, place the appropriate folder into the SimHub DashTemplates folder which is usually: C:\Program Files (x86)\SimHub\DashTemplates.

    The 'Next Screen' and Previous Screen' actions can be mapped to switch between screens on the 'FullDash' widget, showing more information that is available.

    Detailed instructions in spoiler below

    rFactor 2 must be run in either windowed or borderless mode for this to work. Vsync also helps it to run smoother in some cases.

    1. You will need to download and install SimHub from here: http://www.racedepartment.com/downloads/simhub-diy-sim-racing-dash.10252/

    2. Download and install the overlay. Do this by placing the correct version for your setup into the DashTemplates folder which is inside the SimHub Installation folder, usually: C:\Program Files (x86)\SimHub\DashTemplates.

    3. Open SimHub and click rFactor2 in the games list, then click on the 'instructions' link in the top right corner. This will open a window with the necessary file for rF2 and instructions on where to install it, as shown below. One the plugin is in the correct folder, enable the plugin in rFactor 2 and restart the sim.

    4. To assign 'Next Screen' and 'Previous Screen' buttons, open the Control and events tab on the left of the SimHub GUI and press 'New mapping'.

    In the new window, scroll down the right side until you see the NextScreen and PreviousScreen options. Click on one of them, and then press the button you wish to assign. Repeat for the other one.

    5. The overlay should now be in the list of dashes, and working for rFactor 2. Click on the dash image that says 'Start' to open the HUD.

    6. The HUD should show up on the screen with a black background. Position the HUD correctly to cover the screen and then press the dotted circle in the top right to make the HUD see though and give you the ability to click through it.

    7. If you wish to hide certain elements of the HUD or move them around, click the HUD 'EDIT' button in the list of dashes.

    8. From here you can hide a widget by clicking on it and pressing delete, or by clicking the 'eye' symbol on the right hand side. You can move widget around by simply dragging and dropping. Changes will take effect after saving.

      Firstly, thank you. Secondly, if it stutters a lot then Vsync or something similar is the only option. It happens with all SimHub overlays so I can't really do anything in particular about it. Sorry
