    I am unable to make this work. Is there a trick I am missing? I placed the files in the plugin folder and... nothing happens in game.
     
  3. The plugin stays invisible until you've done at least one timed lap. So after your outlap and 1st full lap you should see the delta display on your screen.

    What Frank said is correct. A few more questions to understand better:

    • do you see the initial message (in the chat space) that says "Delta Best plugin v16/Sebring" enabled? If you don't, the plugin is not being loaded. If you do, then everything should just work fine.
    • Assuming you don't see that message then. What build do you have? Is it 798 or newer? Are you using the 32-bit or 64-bit executables?
    Just in case, the zip file comes with a comprehensive README file. If you read it, you will see that you need to copy "DeltaBest_x64.dll" and "DeltaBestBackground.png" into your "C:\Program Files (x86)\rFactor2\Bin64\Plugins\".

    If you are still using a 32 bit build of rFactor 2, then you need to copy "DeltaBest.dll" and "DeltaBestBackground.png" into "C:\Program Files (x86)\rFactor2\Bin32\Plugins\".

    Good luck! :)

    Is there any way to change the large font to a smaller one at all?

    If I am not mistaken you can change font type and size with the config.ini provided together with the plugin. It is all in the readme.

    For AMS you don't need it because is already on the def hud. For GSCE you need the RF1 plugin if exist. RF1 and RF2 use different plugin system.

  14. Hi, I am using v20, and it works but I have a couple of small issues. in a practice session if there is an AI car coming from behind, blue flags don't show. And the other issue is that if I crash and esc to garage then start again from the pit lane the delta behaves crazy until I do a lap. The bar and numbers jumps up and down erratically from 0 to - or + 10.
     
  15. Blue flags work when I am using Delta Best. You may be thinking that blue flags in Practice work the same as in Race? Or maybe the person behind you isn't "ahead of you" and deserving of a blue flag?

    The scrambling is a very temporary problem that is cured by doing a lap. The amount of effort to fix that would likely be tremendous, or it may not even be possible as a plug-in. ISI might have to fix the data feed that Delta Best is accessing.

    Are you sure about this?
    Never heard of not working blue flags before.
    In fact, they have always worked fine for me when I used the plugin.

    I know about that problem, but have no idea about the cause.
    The plan is to have a look at it during the next few weeks.
