    Hi,

    I searched but didn't find a relative timing plugin that shows: Car number, position and timing.

    Is there such a thing ?
    If not what information do I need to build a plugin like this ?
    Please advise thanks

    didn't work says not connected rfactor is up and running and in game.
    download page is a memory mapper and all items are grey or inactive.

    I mean I extracted and ran it as described and it's a very large screen with a little menu at the top. ALL options are grey inactive.
    Is this what it's suppose to look like ?

    I don't see any picture, but for me, it's just a small black box.

    Have you enabled the Shared Memory plugin in rFactor?

    OK yes, I enabled Shared Memory plugin and am able to get both the SharedMemory.exe to show data, and also someone sent me another RelativeOverlay.exe on discord channel. Those are both working and I had to edit the .ini to show 500x500 instead of what it had be default.

    Sooo..... it works but doesn't show Car Number by design.
    So I will work on simhub to create something of my own.
    There is a New one on Racedepartment that could work also.
    Thanks

    Make sure rFactor is running and enter a race or something.
    I think you get black box if your not in race, or "WATCH" / spectate a race and data should show up in the black window.
