Hi all. I have assigned time acceleration to buttons on my wheel and to the keyboard and none of them work. I also tried Ctrl X and that doesn't work either. Please help and thank you.

time is a macro keypress isn't it? Can your wheel reproduce multiple keypresses?
You can assign it to a single key. I use ' as I think that is what it was in rFactor 1 originally, and I got used to it.

It may have changed for some reason recently, of course, I haven't played rFactor 2 offline in years, so I'm not even sure I still have the command assigned.

@OP try the other CTRL button + X and see if that works. If it does, it is likely what @davehenrie is alluding to (ghosting).

For it to work on my Button Box I have to use 'Joy2Key', for some reason it won't bind on its own.

Hi Dave. I'm sorry I don't know what that means. I don't remember if "time acceleration' was originally assigned to a key if that is what you mean.

Thanks guy
Bind it in game as default ctrl X, then in Joy2key same ctrl X.
Thanks Marc and all others, I had to bind it to Ctlr X and it worked.

I know I am a novice but I also can't get the Track map to work. I have the "TrackIR_rF2_Plugin.dll" set 'ON' in options but it doesn't work/appear in the game.

Anything that writes to the screen won't work in DX11 RF2 currently.

TrackIR is not related to trackmap at all, it is Facetracking/IR-related.

Thanks MarcG again for your response. Does this mean I cannot get a track map at all?
I'm not sure if a modder has done anything so can't say for sure, but generally old plug ins no longer work that write to the screen, maybe a modder has made an Overlay of some kind but I don't use anything like that personally (VR user).

Thanks MarG, I have been looking but can't find any yet.

Simhub can also be used as an overlay on your main screen (but then you need to play rF2 in window or borderless mode, causing a small fps drop).
As far as I know it is the only way to get a track map and infos on screen since the game went Dx11; the new UI is suppose to change all that, in the meantime we have to be patient...
