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.


4. To assign 'Next Screen' and 'Previous Screen' buttons, open the 'Dash Settings' andconfigure your mappings'.

5. The hud should now be on the list of overlays and working for rFactor 2. Click on the overlay 'Load' button to open the HUD layout.

6. The HUD should show up on the screen once you are in a session


7. If you wish to add/remove certain elements of the HUD, resize them or move them around, open the HUD and click the 'Edit Layout' button.

Great Job by the way. I wonder is there any chance to remove the white frame around the track overlay ?
Excellent, works fine with rF2 and simhub latest versions and...it's FREE !

Complete info display and fully customizable with simhub. Thank you for sharing your talent and work.
I have a problem with the official studio 397 gt3 package, the dush works correctly, but it does not allow me to view the TC and ABS information.Anyone know how to solve?
Really enjoy this overlay, its the closest thing I can find to the only "trackmap" plugin. However I had an issue last night during a talledega race where the bottom portion of the track map was cut off.
Awesome. First time tried the free version it doesn't work 100% well which obvious input lag problem for overlay or dashboard. Then, donated some amount of money to get the license, 100% satisfaction with all the overlays and dashboard working smooth!
it is the only tool that is able to add more immersion on r factor 2 .
please someone tell me why even if i have donate and use the key my HUD fps inside RFactor 2 are like 10 fps
when i run Simhud from tablet or mobile i have full fps but the dash inside rf2 has low fps
why ?
silly program. too many hoops to jump through
One of the best plugin i have ever seen in my life! Thx!
thx !
I've been really looking for something like this but I just can't get it to work. Running SimHub as administrator, playing in borderless mode (windowed doesn't work either). SimHub is also conntected to the game. But when I load the overlay "rf2 hud", it's always opened in the background and doesn't show in the game whatsoever. Is there anything else I might be doing wrong? (Windows 10, x64, DX11)
Hero. Just discovered SimHub.. A great thing, adds a lot to the old fashioned rF2 HUD (which isn't bad)

Do you mean, you want only a dash module, no other things? You have to edit your overlay in the Overlay Layout editor. When you launch the overlay, there is a popup in which you can select 'Edit Layout'.
When you click it, you see all the modules in red, just hit the 'X' buttons on what you don't want, save it, and go!
That's a great job! Thank you! But I've a little problem: the fact is that I only want to use the dashboard, I can't change the screen, with fuel, timing, tyres,.. even with the command "next screen" can you help me please? Thanks!
I wanna hug you
Perfect overlays very good THX
I use this as a standard.
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!
A crazy detailled work, it must be seen !
I liked it, but this 1.3.2 frequently disappears "Overlay HUD" when driving, so I returned to 1.3.1 (1.3).
