    Call me lazy (or not very good at editing the plugin) but I wonder if anyone has made some nice looking TV overlays using the plugin they want to share, it might be fun to see what everyone has come up with. :)

    Hello, I am trying to edit the plugin to make it work in our league. I've edited the .ini files (vehiculeClass and vehiculeName) to show correctly our 2 category. On single player mode, everything works fine while in multiplayer I can't change category view in the tower widget, either by pressing the c key or by pressing the button on the console "cycle category". the rest work properly.You have any suggestions? I'm going crazy!!
    Thank you in advance

    Unfortunately there's no way to display number of pitstops in the scrolling banner afaik. Those can be displayed in the tower however. Press F (default key, can be modified) to cycle through gaps / pitstops / topspeeds.

    Awesome,Just beginning to use TV plugin.

    Whether you can provide the source code or open source, I can make it Chinese or more easy to use (I'm an independent developer). Because I came to China, there are many SIM enthusiasts in China, there are professional events, but they do not understand english.

    If you are willing, you can send the source code to scphbin@gmail.com or upload the source code to the GitHub and then tell me in the mail or other way that I will strictly observe the open source protocol.

    I hope you can not understand the English of Chinese SIM fans a little help.

    Thank you

    Kevin

    • Hello Gerald,
      As you know i'm using the TV Plugin for almost a year and a friend of mine just had an idea.

      I don't know if you know the iracing tv overlay but there is a function that shows a short video when you click on replay.
      do you think something like that is possible with your overlay plugin?

      It should work like that:
      You look at the race and see something you want to see again.
      you press replay
      the screen switches to that short video scene. (video shows a small animation with replay and a logo for example for around 3-5 seconds)
      animation is done and the game gets into the replay just as it would normally do without the video.

      Cheers
      Rico

    Replay is already supported the TV Plugin, via the TV Console. For the animation, it is not supported.

    I don't have time unfortunately. And as this lack of time don't stop, I will publish the source code of all of my plugins and tools. So other people will be able to update them if wanted.

    I guys, I'm making a new Skin for the tv plugin.
    But I have some problem with the position of the cells and text etc.

    It's really hard to understand all the lines in the .ini

    slowly.

    What do people use or how do you overlay the results at the end of a session. So say for example at the end of qualifying, what do people do for displaying the results?

    Hello All,

    Asking on behalf of a few of us.

    We currently use the TV Plugin, and the automated camera tool.

    The automated camera tool is OK, but have had a few comments about the jumping between cars too much/focusing on random events. etc, so we want to go back to using the console.

    However, when our broadcaster clicks on the console, it takes all the resources away from rF2, so the FPS within the sim become low when using the console.

    Is there a way to stop this from happening - I guess looking at more Windows based expertise than game, but maybe there is something than can help?

    Thanks All.

    Hi,

    Installed everything. Plugins work. But when I first start the Remote and then rF2 it all works but when I login on the server the Remote stops working.. Don't know what to do and I'm hoping for your help.

    Regards,

    Sven

    Gerald, would it be possible to have a widget for current tyre compound, having a .PNG along with defined naming to visualize it ?

    Are other clients present on the server when you try to login? From about two builds of rFactor 2 ago, I have noticed that I have to be the first one in the server for it to work

    if i remember correctly, tyre is considered as "telemetry" information -> those kind of information are only avalable for your own car.
