Vector Info Screen 1.0.7

Display tyre, fuel, map etc. on a second monitor

  1. Stefan Sparco
    It's fully re-sizeable. I use it on my second 22" monitor but it looks fine on my little 7" monitor as well.

    This release has five screens:-

    Tyre Monitor
    Real Time Leaderboard
    Track Map
    Energy Monitor (Fuel & ERS)
    Collision Alert System

    Installation (the zip has two items, the VIS installer and a python app that sends data from AC to VIS):-

    Install the python app first:-

    1) Copy the "python" folder to your Assetto Corsa apps folder i.e. ...Steam\steamapps\common\assettocorsa\apps

    2) Launch AC, go to the Options -> General menu and make sure "VectorInfoScreen" is ticked.

    3) Start driving, select VectorInfoScreen from the apps menu. You should see a small grey box with a VectorInfoScreen title.

    4) Run "VectorInfoScreen.msi" to install the program.

    This app has keyboard shortcuts to switch screens etc. (click the help button in the lower right corner to see what they are).
    I highly recommend an app called "AntiMicro" to map these keyboard shortcuts to buttons on your wheel/button box. It's easy to use and works great. It can be downloaded here:-

    This app is truly amazing! I like it alot!

    I miss one thing, it would be good to have a clock on each page, just a digital one that is easy to spot. Maybe possible to change between "game time" and local computer time, where computer time is most important (for me).

    ( I want this to know when it´s time to go to bed while fighting those hotlaps :D )

    Functional application suited for a secondary monitor, doesn't appear to have much of an impact on game performance like in-game apps potentially do, and is also quite useful for testing AI while having the sim run in the background. Nice work.

      It looks like you haven't installed the python app.

    A very nice app. I'm using it with Duet Display and have no issues. Duet Display uses 100 MB ram, and there is no lag. Running a Ryzen 1700x, a lot of threads for multitasking. 4% CPU usage in Duet Display. "Smaller" CPUs could get into trouble?

    Could we get color codes for pressure and temps?

      Temp delta box turns blue if temp goes below the range in the tyre specs box and red if it goes above the range.
      Pressure delta box turns grey if more or less than 3 psi than the tyre spec.
      Leaderboard is heaviest for CPU usage but still a reasonable 3% on my system. Track Map can be about 2-3% as well. The rest of the screens show as 0% cpu usage.

    Have used this a few times now and it is an excellent resource while driving, especially on those long races where you need info about your tyres!

    Excellent. I hadn't used something like this since GPL days!
    The tyre info convinced me of my fronts being 1psi too high, I went with it against previous 'feel' but indeed the car remained balanced throughout the race.
    Also enjoying the race position, it was tricky to know on an alpha track (TT) which position I was running. Now I know some AI is somehow still hanging in there ahead ;D

    Of course all of this would otherwise be available overdrawing the display, but I too want nothing to take away continuity (even the mouse pointer has to auto-hide faster imo).

    This is a very useful piece of software, thank you for your hard work IRobot!

    Just a bit of information for those who might find it useful. I don't have a spare monitor but I do have an old laptop which I use as a second display for VIS. I use a free piece of software called Spacedesk which uses a network to extend a Windows desktop. It can also output to an android device although I haven't tried this.

    VIS works well with this setup and is worth trying if you have an old laptop at hand. Very little lag as well!

    Thanks again IRobot and good luck with any future development to VIS.

    it looks great! do you know if it's possible to use it on IOS devices? Thanks
    1. Stefan Sparco
      Author's Response
      You can get apps to make your ios device act like a second monitor but it would probably be too laggy. I don't think it would be a good idea.

    Yeah! Your work is simply amazing... We all are pleased to try the "alpha" version... Which, in fact, is very usable and util. Something I noticed, In the Energy Monitor I can't see the ERS from Mod car (RSS Formula Hybrid). I know you are hardworking ... And I know this app will be great in not a long time... It is great already. Congrats! Very nice work...
