    Hello and happy new Year to all...
    I was browsing for an overlay plugin and I found this one
    https://github.com/KChadwick96/rFactor-2-Overlay
    So i try to run it...I downloaded the repo and execute all commands...
    Now I have on my folder the files camera-controls-src,src,node_modules and the dist files which is supposed to be the build file...Then he says that i can drag/drop those files to the webdev folder on rF2 and i don't have this file...Also I don't understand this instruction:
    "Currently, rFactor does not expose the REST API needed for the overlay to work. To install this, move the contents of the server-install directory to the root of your rFactor 2 install e.g. c:/Program Files/Steam/.../steamapps/common/rFactor 2"
    What is the server-install directory...In his repo there is no such folder.
    When I cmd and ng serve --open the site the overlay is being displayed but it doesn't get data from rF2!
    Could anybody help me/know about this?
