WRC Telemetry Patch 1.2

# WRC Telemetry

This is a patch for WRC 7/8/9/10 that enables telemetry through shared memory.

Included you will find:
  • `WrcInjectionPayload.dll` -- a replacement DLL for `PhysXCooking64_s.dll`
  • `DirtRally2.exe` -- pretends WRC is DiRT Rally 2.0 for use with dashboards and motion systems

## Installation

Unzip `` in WRC's installation folder then run `Install.bat`.

## Manual installation
  1. Unzip `` in WRC's installation folder.
  2. Rename `PhysXCooking64_s.dll` to `PhysXCooking64_s_org.dll`.
  3. Rename `WrcInjectionPayload.dll` to `PhysXCooking64_s.dll`.

NOTE: The file `PhysXCooking64_s_org.dll` must exist. It must be the original `PhysXCooking64_s.dll` from the latest version of the game.

## Usage

  1. Install using the instructions above.
  2. (optional) Start `DirtRally2.exe` to pretend that WRC is DiRT Rally 2.0. This is necesarry unless your dashboard/buttkicker/motion system includes support for this patch.
  3. Start your dashboard/buttkicker/motion system.
  4. Start WRC.
  5. Enjoy :)
### Usage with SimTools

SimTools does not include native support for this telemetry protocol (as of Jan 2021.) Instead use
the included DiRT Rally 2.0 emulator:

DirtRally2.exe /port 4123 /protocol simtools

SimTools doesn't start unless the game is "Patched". Follow the prompts issued by SimTools and select the folder Documents\My Games\DiRT Rally 2.0 when prompted (even if you don't have DiRT Rally 2.0 installed.)

### For use with SimHub

SimHub does not include native support for this telemetry protocol (as of Jan 2021.) Instead use
the included DiRT Rally 2.0 emulator:

DirtRally2.exe /protocol extradata3

SimHub will complain that "DiRT Rally 2.0 telemetry is not configured". Ignore these warnings.

## Will it break in the future?


When Epic Games decides to update the game it will overwrite `PhysXCooking64_s.dll` with an unpatched copy. Run `Install.bat` to fix the issue.

The patch is resilient to smaller changes in WRC. However, if major changes are made to WRC this patch will stop working permanently.

## Where is the source code?

I've shown this is possible. Now do it yourself.

## Is this legal?

Yes. This package includes no copyrighted code or other assets. IANAL.

## Telemetry protocol

#include <inttypes.h>

constexpr const wchar_t *SHARED_MEMORY_NAME =

#pragma pack(push, 1)

struct WrcTelemetry
    uint32_t sequence_number; // Odd while game is updating shared memory
    uint32_t version; // Version of this struct

    // Version 1:
    int32_t gear; // Neutral = 1, First = 2, ...
    float velocity[3]; // Left, up, forward [m/s]
    float acceleration[3]; // Left, up, forward [m/s^2]
    int32_t engine_idle_rpm; // [rpm/10]
    int32_t engine_max_rpm; // [rpm/10]
    int32_t engine_rpm; // [rpm/10]
    float suspension_travel[4]; // It can move this much (LF,LR,RR,RF) [m]
    float suspension_position[4]; // From zero to `suspension_travel` [m]
    float unknown[4]; // (LF,LR,RR,RF) [?]

#pragma pack(pop)

## Known issues
  • Lap time not available (compatibility value is guesstimated)
  • Sector time/diff not available
  • In game RPM meter does not match reported RPM value (game UI bug?)
  • WRC 10: No telemetry during introduction session

Latest reviews

after the last WRC update I get the wrong shift warning if I use Simdashboard. The limiter turns on at about 6000
I do not get it to work for wrc 10. I have tried several times and the only thing that has happened is that I had to reinstall the game. Hope this gets an update that makes it work to make it easier to download.
Awesome and much better than expected. For Sim Commander you need to use Space Monkey:
If 1.0.5 doesn't work (like here) use the 1.0.4 version
Thank you!
It works with Fanaleds using this:
DirtRally2.exe /port 30500 /protocol extradata3
Giving this 2 stars because it seems to largely work with WRC7/8/9 from everything I've read so far, however this completely broke my WRC10 and I am now unable to connect to the global leaderboards. Attempted to remove the files from the zip and validate my files via steam but still was unable to connect to the leaderboards after validations completed. Currently completely reinstalling the game in hopes that it fixes this issue, may be updating in the future.
Thank you @sim4all. Hopefully I'll be reading good news from @Wotever soon.
I am using simdashboard on android. It works fine with WRC7, but not at all with 10. I am using the latest 1.2 version of this telemetry program.

I'm not sure if it's simdashboard that needs to be updated (it's fully updated as it is) or there is a bug on my end. I've tried it several times and it's a no-go.
Absolutely genius - I cannot play without bass shakers and external gear display. This patch finally makes the WRC games playable for me! Thanks!
Works perfectly! Hopefully it will work with wrc 10 also. Does anyone know if its maybe also workin with 10? :)
Also using with Sim Dashboard on Android and it's worked flawless. Huge thank you for making this!!! Hopefully this will work with WRC 10 when it is released too!
Thank you, works great with Sim Dashboard for android.
I wish I had more data, but it's already great. Thank you very much.
Works really well. It was great to install based on the video. Every installation should be done with an installation video, thanks for the video I was able to install the update after watching it. Big thanks again.
Finally - shakers and dash for WRC! Thank you so much.
Works great for WRC 8! here's the video tutorial I made on how to get it working!
The game doesnt open if i install this (WRC9) not working right now at least for me
Thanks a lot for this, i'm testing right now to integrate it inside simhub, it gives a super basic dash, but a good shaker feedback !

Concerning the "unknown" field, it's clearly related to wheel rotation, but hard to say the unit, it tried, radians, m/s, nothing seems totally correct, but at least it's proportionnal that's enough for me !
the dream can true for the must have app !!!
Thank You Sr
Fantastic patch, now I can get some feedback from bass shakers and rev leds work in Simhub. Thank you!!!!
