    Hi, I thought id give it a try,
    I downloaded the track map plugin found HERE and it all works ok
    But when i used your overlay it was a bit spaced out over the screen, all the info was not in the frame.
    by the way i am using triple screen 5760x1080
    im not fully up to speed with these tools is there a way to merge it all together like in the picture.
    it all worked just spread out, or do i need to reinstall it again.

    thanks for any help :)

    without seeing whats going on i would say you have to realign the layers/widgets
    if you load the game up get on track and push alt space at the same time do it twice and it brings up a menu down the bottom of that menu is all the motec layers/widgets go to motecmain push enter
    now you will be able to move the motecmain anywhere on screen move it to where you want it when driving
    now open the menu again and go to the next in the list motectyres select it and move it over the top of the motecmain widget and align it up again use screenshot as a reference as to where it goes
    i hope this explains how to move it around and realign it

    i know its a pain
    but as i said in the original post this was the only way i could get it to work
    i don't know if it is something i'm doing wrong or if its the trackmap plugin but i can't actually make a new widget i can only edit an exciting widget because you can't mix the widgets together to create a new widget


    preferably all the widgets in the trackmap plugin need to be on the 1 widget then people could create there own widgets with what ever is available within the plugin

    Hi i followed the instructions, took a few mins to get used to it but its real simple and easy to use:thumbsup::thumbsup:
    once you have got to the point that each unit can be selected using the arrows keys left and right to cycle though each one, you move them round with you mouse, you can switch each part on and off with the enter button. so after five minutes i had what i wanted... below are some pics of how it was, and were i ended up:D
    pic 1: Original Position

    pic 2: 1sttime ALT+Space use the arrows up and down to go though the menu press enter to select
    2.jpg

    pic3: 2nd time ALT+Space use the arrows up and down to go though the menu press enter to select
    3.jpg

    pic4: Finished as to what i liked and what i wanted diplayed.:)
    4.jpg

    like the start light feature..

    this is a great little app to use... would recommend to all even if you don't want all the features there are a couple that really make it good. thank you for this ..:thumbsup:

    Nice will try it out. I love trackmap though I disable most of the clutter.

    To install this mod
    unzip to Rfactor 2/Plugins merge folders and overwrite trackmapconf

    if you use xpadder you can map the motec left and motec right panel to toggle whats being displayed with only 2 buttons
    in xpadder button advanced
    example left panel
    add pause , j , add pause , add pause , k , add new cycle , k , add pause , add pause , j

    for example right panel
    add pause , g , add pause , add pause , h , add new cycle , h , add pause , add pause , g

    you can also use a batch file to quickly change the position of the motec lcd from car to car
    my trackmapconf swapper
    https://www.mediafire.com/?nkf9iphqt8t9k6f
    to install unzip to plugins/trackmap you should also send a shortcut of trackmapconf Swapper.bat to the desktop

    to use
    just double click trackmapconf Swapper.bat type 1 to 10 and hit enter done
    to edit
    add more cars/new position right click on trackmapconf Swapper.bat select edit
    also i'm not sure this works if you have your rfactor 2 installed on your system drive

    just noticed this also works with rf1
    GID V1-1-4 - Global Info Display and Trackmap
    just rename trackmapconf to gidconf

    Hi I am working on a F1 ASR , F1 2014 F1 Hud , TV Style from the newset graphics in this season ,
    In developer mode I can not seem to find , Brake , Throttle , RPM 2 , that is in your reference pictures ,
    Did you apply these from the developer Hud tools , or did you apply them yourself , I would appreciate your support if possible as its my first time creating one for rFactor in general I understand parts of things and always learn fast with things in general too , could not find the correct names or settings ?
