    Iirc keys doesn't work. Rename d3d9.dll, locates in game install dir, to something else (for example backup_d3d9.dll). Been a while since I did it, but if my memory serves me right that's how it's done.

    Hi Ozsprinter

    This is number 0 of your keypad (right of the keyboard)

    The d3d9.dll renaming is to eliminate all other options as well. It takes all the plugins away, and I believe all telemetry as well.

    If you have an issue with a installed plugin, rename (or remove) the d3d9.dll file. If it's just something you do not want to see displayed, you should be able to look the qppropriate key up in the settings/mappings section of your config.

    In this case, I believe it is indeed the 0 of the NUM Keypad.

    What you mean with all plugins? I've renamed the file and everything seems to work just fine. Tho I haven't check telemetry with trucks for awhile, have to check that tonight. I have couple of extra plugins installed and everything works.
    Renaming/removing .dll was the method someone mentioned here around the game release. I tried keys first but nothing seemed to work and so I ended up renaming the .dll. Tho my keyboard in simrig isn't the mormal one. It doesn't have "separate" numpad. Maybe that's why keys doesn't work for me.

    Possible indeed. I believe you can set the keys in your settings screen as well.
    Removing the DLL removes some functinality that comes from plugins. When you install a new plugin, the D3D9.dll is mostly overwritten. By renaming or removing it, the plugin is (partly) deativated. I believe its a DX9 DLL, used for certain data output.

    I think I'll put the .dll back to business then and find other way to get rid of the track map.

    Thanks for the info Marco.

    Like said above, hit the zero button. Hitting it twice I believe will completely remove the track map. If you're looking for extra performance, removing the track map will help some.

    Here: \FTruck2013\Plugins\TrackMap open the file called TrackMapConf and then edit this line:

    //ModeMap = [ OFF | FIX | ROTATION ]
    ModeMap =OFF
