rFactor 2 Hud - SimHub 1.3.2

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.

    Make sure to download the lastest version of SimHub so that you can run these overlays using the HTML engine as this makes it much more smoother for most people.

    Detailed instructions in spoiler below

    rFactor 2 must be run in either windowed or borderless mode for this to work. Make sure to download the lastest version of SimHub so that you can run these overlays using the HTML engine. 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.

    I liked it, but this 1.3.2 frequently disappears "Overlay HUD" when driving, so I returned to 1.3.1 (1.3).

    After some extensive testing i must say that i'm sad... whatever i tried i could't get free of some strong stutter and working slow game while using this in SimHub! As soon as o close all SimHub suff and HUD... the rF2 games runs super smooth!! ( i'm not even using the dash because it has really strong delay.. it's pointless and weird to use it ) Hope you guys can fix this soon!

      1. Enable the use of the HTML engine
      2. Donate to get the SimHub license and remove some delay

      It will not be absolutely perfect, but it will be way, way better and more usable.

      If for some reason, it is still super laggy then make sure the game is running at 60fps and maybe try using Vsync.

    i rated it fiive stars cause it deserves them all, but my Fulldash widget stutterd a lot. How can i fix it?

      Author's Response
      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
