rFactor 2 Hud - SimHub 2.1

SimHub Overlay for rF2

  1. FinesseSteez
    To install, extract into the appropriate folder which is usually: C:\Program Files (x86)\SimHub.

    The 'Next Screen' and Previous Screen' actions can be mapped to switch between screens on the 'FullDash' widget, showing more information that is available.

    Detailed instructions in spoiler below


    rFactor 2 must be run in either windowed or borderless mode for this to work. Using the HTML engine and/or Vsync can help it to run smoother.

    1. You will need to download and install SimHub from here: http://www.racedepartment.com/downloads/simhub-diy-sim-racing-dash.10252/

    2. Download and install the overlay and widgets. Do this by placing the extracted folders inside the SimHub Installation folder, usually: C:\Program Files (x86)\SimHub

    3. Open SimHub and click rFactor2 in the games list, then click on the 'instructions' link in the top right corner. This will open a window with the necessary file for rF2 and instructions on where to install it, as shown below. Once the plugin is in the correct folder, enable the plugin in rFactor 2 and restart the sim.

    Very nice update, it has a lot of important improvements.
    It uses a bit less cpu then the previous style with the complete dashboard, so that is very nice :) Also the new standings screen during race is useable now.
    Keep up the good work!

    I liked it, but this 1.3.2 frequently disappears "Overlay HUD" when driving, so I returned to 1.3.1 (1.3).

    After some extensive testing i must say that i'm sad... whatever i tried i could't get free of some strong stutter and working slow game while using this in SimHub! As soon as o close all SimHub suff and HUD... the rF2 games runs super smooth!! ( i'm not even using the dash because it has really strong delay.. it's pointless and weird to use it ) Hope you guys can fix this soon!

      1. Enable the use of the HTML engine
      2. Donate to get the SimHub license and remove some delay

      It will not be absolutely perfect, but it will be way, way better and more usable.

      If for some reason, it is still super laggy then make sure the game is running at 60fps and maybe try using Vsync.

    i rated it fiive stars cause it deserves them all, but my Fulldash widget stutterd a lot. How can i fix it?

      Author's Response
      Firstly, thank you. Secondly, if it stutters a lot then Vsync or something similar is the only option. It happens with all SimHub overlays so I can't really do anything in particular about it. Sorry
