    Does anyone know how to run the GRTVPluginConsole in rf2 steam version?
    After 2hrs hassle it keeps crashing on me. It does work in the non-steam version but i need the multiplayer option to stream;) Could it be a port issue?
    @Gijs van Elderen or @Daiman Patel any ideas?

    For the Plugin:
    • Installation:
      • The "dll" must be copied into the rf2 core directory plugins
      • The "GRTvPlugin" directory containing all ini files and images must be copied into the rF2 data player profile directory
    For the remote Console:
    • Installation:
      • You can copy the "exe" and its ini file in any directory

    Thanks Andrew, but that's not my question:) Overlay works fine only the remote console does not :( with the steam version.
    It's a handy tool for broadcasting.

    Are you still having this issue, or have you fixed it. Ive just tried and same issue. Displays in game, but the console does not work. i recieve data such as the events, and the driver info, but I cant do anything to do with changing hud and driver etc.

    Yes, it's fixed. What i did is going back to previous build under Properties/betas in steam. Console should work. After that go back to current build. Console should still work. This all i found by trial and error no official support:)
