SimHub Headlight Flasher Plugin - Adds to SimHub a Configurable Headlight Flasher, for Sims without that function

This Plugin uses SimHub: https://www.simhubdash.com/


This Plugin adds a Headlight Flasher. This allows you to simply press a button once to trigger a set of flashes (configurable in length and number) by toggling the Headlight button, useful for Sims without a Flasher (Rfactor 2, AMS1, etc.). It allways makes an on and off toggle, so when headlights are on at Night they will remain on afterwards.
The Headlight Flasher is available by mapping in SimHub in Controlls a Button to...

Flashing isnt working here in rF2. I guess its because the lights in rfs here are mapped to H. But the plugin is using L.
After clicking the field for "headlight key" i cant put in a new key. Other fields like the flash lenght and number of flashes are working/reacting on the keyboard (also enabled in the settings).

Any idea?

Once mapped it works great by the way :thumbsup:

hey mate, do you plan to add automatic flashing lights when on pitlane?
Can you add the option to activate flashing lights when pit-limiter is activated?
I think adding a key binding option for pit-lane lights is enough.
Thanks for the plug-in!!

When I download the Headlight controls tool from Tony Whitley I get a virus warning that it could harm my computer.

cant seem to get it working for me, followed the instructions but nothing happens.
Let me take a guess: You forgot to map the key ingame, or mapped it to your controller instead of the key you specified in simhub.

If that is not it you might have screwed up the SimHub Action binding. You can test if the key is getting pressed by opening a text editor and pressing the button you mapped the FlashHeadlights Action onto

-Fixed bug with rf2-Autoheadlight support soft locking SimHub when triggering the Flash Action while rf2 is not running
-rf2-Autoheadlight support is now default for new installs
