    Thanks for the incredibly quick reply, Lazza. GPS track position is working great with your original plugin and the latest 1.0.x Motec i2Pro software.

    Hi there,

    Is there any news foe the "live timing" version? That we could have the data live from the car!

    I will be doing a 'per lap' option, eventually, but not more live than that, and it will be the DAMPlugin, not this one.

    "eventually" ... can't be more specific than that.

    You can tell the plugin where to save the logs, and you can tell i2pro where to open log files from (even giving it a folder to monitor and open new logs automatically), so I'm sure something can be worked out for 'remote' analysis. I don't think it's something I'd look to implement myself.

    I'm having some problems with the plugin...

    I upgraded from Win7 to Win10 and I think that may be something to do with it. Worked fine in 7, and looking through my Documents/rFactor 2 folder I see that everything with the Motec plugin is where it's supposed to be, still. Have you heard of anyone having problems in 10? The plugin starts correctly (I hear the upward beeps/see the red plugin icon in the top corner), and I can start logging (only when stopped) but if I'm in motion or I begin moving, I get the error tone and nothing gets logged.

    Update your logging folder in the .ini. Chances are it's trying to create the file somewhere it can't write to.

    Which tyre data? Did you turn on the tyre channel groups? Have you tried other cars?

    *Oops, confused myself with my own plugins... yeah, this one should have most basic tyre data available all the time. Check the logged channels on in the values list (on the right in some telemetry pages in i2Pro) and see if values show up there; you may just need to configure your graphs to use the correct channel names.

    The DAMPlugin works with the new i2Pro versions.

    Confirmed - I formatted a few weeks ago, installed this plugin and downloaded the latest i2 Pro version, no issues so far(except that I like the old i2 Pro's interface better, but this is nothing to do with the plugin).

    Hi Lazza,
    I would like to attempt to use Motec and your plugin. I am relatively new to this all. Is there any guide that details how to install everything from scratch. That being the correct motec version and your Plugin and how they work in tandem?
    Thanks,
    MM

    Well first I'd say get the DAMPlugin, not this one, then you can grab the latest i2Pro and it'll work. When you've installed the plugin and i2Pro it should be pretty straightforward to work out.

    i.e. no, I don't have a guide :p

    The new version of this plugin, with more options and more features to come (eventually). This telemetry plugin won't be updated anymore.

    Check it out here.

    Hi all,

    I'm quite new in the field of rfactor 2 and motec.

    I am actually "not interested" in racing myself ( since I'm soooo bad) but in doing setups and that sort of stuff. For this I need to get motec working.

    Some question:

    -Which is the latest version of Lazza's plugin? I have been reading and testing. In fact I tried the DAMPluing v0.75 but once the data is loaded in motec, only weird values appear, such as Speed=above 400km/h, temperatures above 1000Deg. In the .ini file I set different values (2,3 even 4) but it is not the problem.

    - Now I have the 28Jun2014. This works a bit better so far, but data such as oil or Water T are kept constant the whole time. Info from tyres is above 1000Deg too.

    - Steering angle is in %. Ths value is not fix for all the cars, since each one may have a certain %. I guess it is a % of the whole % (360 deg)

    Thank you!

    It sounds like something isn't configured correctly in your i2Pro. I'm not aware of any issues like that in either the latest version of this telemetry plugin, or the DAMPlugin. I use the DAMPlugin myself during league races (and practice, obviously).

    Try creating a new project and load a log in.
