    Hey guys,

    I hated the rF2 original ingame HUD, because it was ugly, not functioning well and in general not a good use. As I didnt found anything for Simhub that suits my needs for eyecandy I started to make my own aiming to be nice to look at and useful in multiclass racing. Here is the result of the first version. Obviously not finished and with some bugs, some related to rF2´s bad data, some due to my lack of understanding Simhub. But we will get there :)

    If you like what you see, please have a try and please feel free to give feedback, negative or positive. I want to improve alot. Alot of things are in my head that need to be in there :)
    https://www.racedepartment.com/down...-leaderboard-standings-relative-simhub.45898/

    Make sure to read the description:

    Requirements:
    - GarySwallowPlugin (.dll plugin and Options folder) Version 6.5.1+ highly recommended due to bugs in previous releases

    Features:
    - Leaderboard is build to put into top left corner
    - Multiclass display (class colors, names and inclass position)
    - Pit Status indicator
    - Auto Collapse when within Top 7
    - Flag Display
    - Start Lights
    - Fully featured Relative (Close to iRacing´s one) with different colors for drivers on different lap (red is a lapping car, blue is a backmarker, grey is in pits)
    - Tire Widget with camber temps, tire temps, brake temps, tire pressure, tire wear and tire compound (horizontal widget only)

    ToDo:
    - Last Pit Lap display (Hopefully by GS)
    - Last Pit Time display
    - Outlap badge
    - Position in Class on leaderboard (probably not possible)
    - Interval gaps for Race Leaderboard (probably not possible)

    Known Issues:
    - Simhub is sometimes slow with fetching data on a complex overlay, this could potentially lead e.g. to temporary empty or weird driver names
    - If you experience any problems, there are occations, in which a fresh install of the overlay solved the problem. To do so, delete the overlays (Header, Relative, Leaderboard) in the simhub Overlays Page, delete the MMO folders in you simhub Dash folder, restart Simhub and install the latest version from this post
    - Also I heard from users that there are plugins for other sim that interfere with the overlay, please deactivate every plugin you dont need for rF2 and try again
    - There is a bug with GS plugin where class names are persitent over 1 session change. This could lead to wrong class display and can be fixed by changing session again (restart, skip session, rejoin etc)
    - If, after an update, your overlay is slightly misaligned, please resize it a little bit and it should reset

    Installation:
    - Please Update to latest Simhub Version (Today 7.4.19+)
    - When updating, delete the old MMO overlays from SimHub
    - If not on latest version, download Gary Swallow plugin from HERE
    - you need the GarySwallow.PluginSdk.dll (into Simhub root folder) and the GS - options folder (conatins class colors) into DashTemplates. Both are provided in the download linked above
    - Activate the GS plugin in the Simhub settings
    - download, extract and execute the MMO simhub files within the zip

    If you have problems, you can contact me on discord St54Kevin#3583.

    To see the overlay in action you might take a look at my last twitch rF2 streams https://www.twitch.tv/st54kevin/videos

    2.0.1
    Finally we found the issue why the overlay is sometimes completely broken. The cause of this is a car/team name with a # in it. That way the GS plugin cannot determine the car number (which rF2 doesnt provide natively BTW) and causes the plugin to crash. Its currently being looked at by Gary and needs an update of the plugin for it to be fixed. Please be patient for the release. I will notify in here with an updte when it happens! Cheers

    We've found a bug that might fuck up leader board driver names, which I experienced yesterday in the LMVC race. It's related to corrupt data by rF2 on online servers that might happen and how Garyswallow Plugin handles it. It will be fixed in the next plugin update

    I can see in your racedepartment link that there are two overlays, one for practice and one for race.

    In simhub you can combine these and make them switchable by a button.
    then you dont have to place them on top each other.

    BIIIG Update, especially for Relative. @ThomasJohansen I merged the two leaderboards into one overlay. Should be way more compfortable to use now :) And check out the new relative. Nothing to miss now compared to iRacing.

    Please be aware that some bugs will be fixed when the next GarySwallowPlugin Update comes out!

    Thanks you are enjoying it.
    Depending on what headset you are using it is possible, but its a pain to do. OVR toolkit for example can pin windows in your VR headset I think. But nothing Simhub can do natively.

    The Leaderboard can now display the last pit lap in races. As this feature is very hard to test on my own in offline races, please report back with issues. I might update this feature with bugfixes if I can find some

    Hi, I got some users with the same problem. They got it solved by running a fresh and latest version of my overlay and GS plugin. Please try my latest version from today. It has some fixes. Please report back if it got solved. Also please delete old versions of my overlay before the update (delete in simhub AND the folders).

    Also please update simhub to the latest version 7.4.19+
