    You've a single screen and a FoV lower than 120 degrees?
    No VR like Oculus or Vive?
    You would like to better understand what's happening around your car?
    ... you defenitely need this plugin! :)

    Take a look from a flying point of view of your car and near opponents with this radar!

    a few screenshots to give you an idea of what it looks like :cool:

    Very cool! Thanks!

    Any chance we can change the position on the screen?

    Sure, open conf.ini file and use top and left parameters to move it anywhere you like :)

    Can't wait to try this! One of the best features of AC is their implementation of the "circles" that I see in these shots. Will try this evening, but assuming those circles move around, is there an option to have just them and not the target? Just asking in case the answer is no, I'll ask in advance for that feature ;)

    But this is a VERY useful mod!! Thanks for implementing and sharing it!

    EDIT: Are the red/orange circles in the screen shots part of this mod or something else?

    Not sure what that means? I have always turned off spotter on road courses (which I use 99% of the time). If spotter is on, we get the circles? And this is part of rF2 or a feature of this mod? Again, sorry for my ignorance if everyone else knows about this, but the screen shots here are the first I have seen it.

    It's a feature of Gerald's brilliant spotter plug in.

    LOL. Thanks! I just scanned 24 pages of that thread and see no references or pics or video clips of the positional circles... Oh well.

    to edit config open conf.ini in rf2 steam folder (eg. C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\rfactor2\Bin64\Plugin\Curs-o-Radar)
    values to set for top and left parameters depend on your screen resolution...

    Supposing your using 1920x1080, start with:
    top=600
    left=1500

    I cannot get this to work. I am using a triple screen setup and also have the following plugins running. TrackMap and FanaLEDS. I see the message saying press CTRL+0 to turn it on so I try that and it doesn't do anything. My resolution is 6060x1080.

    It only appears if there are other cars, so if you practise alone you see nothing.
    When you start off don't press anything. Go out on track and when other cars come near you should see a transparent bullseye display appear with the relative position of the other nearby cars.

    Plugin is autoenabled until you change "enable" parameter in conf.ini file, so you dont need to press ctrl+0
    Send me a pm with your conf.ini and log as well

    perhaps it would be better if there are additional minimap on that radar

    I got it working. But I can only get it to show when I have the config.ini set to
    Code:
    Left=0
    Top=350
    When I edit these numbers I just dissapears. I want it to be centered in the middle and to the right of my centre monitor. What values do I need to enter to get that?

    For example I set it to
    Code:
    Left=1
    Top=350
    and it no longer shows up. Please help. My triple screen resolution is 6060x1080

    I find it's a better position if you just move it up, just out of the line of sight, try Left=0 Top=250 then I just adjusted it so it would show when the nearest car is 15 meters away. Werks fer me
    BTW my res is at 3440x1440 single screen
