Project rF2 is a plugin that allows realtime transmition of a car's telemetry data to an other PC or locally and the receiver can view those data and know exactly all the given info for the vehicle.
Some of them are:
* Track position on map * Complete live timing with extra data like sectors' top speed and best times * Weather * Tires wear,pressures,temps and more * Dashboard showing revs,speed,fuel etc
The installation is pretty simple.
Download the full package zip file and unzip into rfactor 2 root folder and everything will take place automatically.
Before using it make sure you have opened the 8000 or any other you will select to use.
To test the plugin (locally) start the driver's module (project rF2 (driver).exe) and start data broadcast.
Go into the game (preferably smaller windowed mod to leave room for the telemetry modules) and join any session, online or offline.
As soon as you press RACE go run the manager's software (project rf2 (manager) beta v1.1.0.exe) to receive the data.
When the data re received correctly the menu will be enabled and you can browse through belts (bunch of programs) to select the data you need to view.
At official site there are links for software online guide and more.
IMPROTANT FOR USERS USING REGIONAL SETTINGS WITH DECIMAL COMMA INSTEAD OF DECIMAL POINT - IF APPLICATION IS NOT WORKING CHANGE THE REGIONAL SETTINGS OF YOUR O/S TO USE DECIMAL POINT AND IT WILL POSSIBLY WORK.
* If the plugin crashes try to install the VC runtimes as exist in rfactor2\support\runtimes folder and give write access for rfactor2 root folder
* Some times and under undefined conditions rF2 is not giving all the positions data for the cars, usually when there are too many on track, so expect occasionally some of them will be shown as stopped and move again in few seconds.
* Depending on the link status expect some pauses in data transmision
* When a session change some of the data may remain on some of the modules, just restart teh application to get fresh screens.
To do list:
* Add a belt to deal with race strategy and telemetry charts
* Add engine and brakes life calculation
* Add option to manually change tires and brakes temps limits
* Add name boxes to GPS cars
* Add graphical indications to Full Timing module like when there is positions change
* Anything that comes and helps the racing flow

You can submit your times to Offline Challenges and Hotlaps
Since v2.030 includes Championship Manager to manage offline championships with AI or online league championships.
Championship manager features:
manage your online league championships or offline championships with AI support for teams and classes teams can be automatically selected from CarType, CarClass, TeamName, VehName tags or created and assigned manually classes can be automatically selected from CarType, CarClass, TeamName tags or created and assigned manually support for drivers moving between teams and classes at different races during championship customizable points system for 50 places, points-for-all option, plus bonuses for pole position, fastest lap, one lap led and max laps led points presets for all major racing series included driver statistics for championship car statistics selectable by CarType, CarClass, TeamName, VehName tags customizable minimum distance for classification, number of team cars that awarded points, number of worst driver results in championship that won`t be counted support for manual race points override, in case of penalties, disqualifications, custom bonuses, etc. export of championship tables to html transfer your championships between r2la versions by importing r2la_settings file if racing with AI, you have to ensure by yourself consistent driver names and performances at every race during championship do not delete .xml logs that you assigned as results for races in championship, they are accessed every time you browse championship
Since v2.032 there is separate online version of r2la for dedicated servers - rF2 Log Analyzer DEDI ver. 2.034. See readme.txt in archive for instructions.
1. Download rF2 Log Analyzer ver. 2.034
2. Unzip "rF2 Log Analyzer ver. 2.x" folder somewhere.
3. Run r2la.bat. Small cmd window will pop-up, local web server will start.
4. Open address http://127.0.0.1:8000/ in your favorite browser (IE is not supported).
5. When running app for the first time, enter a full path to your rfactor2 folder in the form provided.
6. When you finished working with r2la, you can close local web server window.
Note: Some actions, like importing log files for the first time or deleting log files may take about 30 seconds. Please, wait.
Since B998 rF2 logs include "Category" string for every driver. This allows for better car selection in case of mods like AMGT3, where Category allows to filter all cars independent of manufacturer.
r2la now creates car IDs from 4 tags (3 before) - Category, CarType, CarClass and TeamName. For most known mods best combinations will be preselected by default.
Car IDs are created for every Category+CarType combination.
r2la usually uses first value of the Category list, but for some mods I select other values, selection is hard-coded. For example, Palatov D4 selects second value - "D4" as Category.
Log files from old builds will have their Category=CarType.
Offline challenges now check for Start Type match. Since B998 rF2 includes "FormationAndStart" in log files.

There are some new features compared to the rFactor1 version:
- additional glow effect for the headlight shader,
- color and size can be adjusted through vertex color and
- alpha channels and the aspect ratio of the flare can also be adjusted.
By stolklI started creating a small and basic Windows application that reads the vehicles *.HDV file in rFactor 2 and calculates a basic setup that can be used for the car.
This is based on the document made by Diego Scotto "Guia de Reglajes Genracing 2011".
For some mods, you might find that the Bump and Rebound setting values are a bit higher to the allowed ones, so you might as well just set that value in rFactor 2 to the highest.
This is just a very early version, which I hopefully will improve.
Currently, you will be able to obtain the following for your Initial Car Setup:
- Brake Bias (Based on the car weight distribution of the mod)
- Spring rates
- Slow and Fast Spring Bumps
- Slow and Fast Spring Rebounds
Hope you like it!

There is no dashboards, just two digital counters: Gears and Speed. The main objetive for this HUD is to stay minimalist, ideal for G27 wheels, or custom wheels that already have their own rev counters.

Today I put together this proof of concept for a Delta Best or Delta Time plugin.
The idea is not new at all. At least iRacing has something like this, and I haven't seen it done yet for rF2.
By Alessandro PolliniAuthor : Tosch
Due to the changes in this build i don't have to create different profiles for cockpit and "outside" view. Inspired by the new ISI profiles (Mores, Loch Drummond) I've changed the way how I create the settings. The first thing I do is to figure out the exact times for sunrise and sunset. I calculate the time parameters (hdr profiles work with seconds) and paste the values into an predefined hdr template. To get the timing right in devmode is horrible and it gets even worse when DST (Daylight Saving Time) is enabled.
I make use of the lowest possible whitepoint. The result is a lot of "action" in the sky. This approach has some problems. All bright stuff is in danger to completely blow into the white. Especially affected are dust clouds and water spray in full sunlight and sometimes the clouds in the sky. Some tracks need a lower white point than others (Palm Beach for example) to reach a good looking picture, so the results may differ. Atm I'm very pleased with the look and feel but there maybe bugs under some circumstances (weather settings, wet track in full sunlight, etc.). Please let me know what's wrong.

Attached is version 9 which fixes this issue by writing rF2PedalOverlayPlugin.ini to UserData (i.e. in Documents if UAC is enabled). I haven't included an ini file in the zip as this will be created in the correct location on first run. Note that DetailsEnabled=False by default so if you want the detailed log you'll have to run rF2 once to have it write the ini file and then edit it so DetailsEnabled=True.
Another slight change is that FFB.log and FFB_Details.csv are now written to the UserData\Log folder.
You'll need the Microsoft Visual C++ 2010 Redistributable Package installed to use this, as I used VS2010 to create it, available here

The profile works best for open wheelers (all times of the day, all weather conditions), tintops may have some trouble because of the low whitepoint and auto exposure.

I released a windows application for rFactor 2 Session Log Parser & Statistics generation. This windows app is a stand alone application and does not need any internet/network connections.
1. Loads rFactor 2 session xml log files and stores the data in a structured format for querying and analysis [Done].
2. Displays session results, lap history and streaming information contained in log files. [Done]
3. Various graphs so that user can analyze session data [Done]
4. Functionality to export data to pdf [Not done yet]
Users can submit any requests in this thread for extra functionality and I will analyze it and if feasible implement it.
This application has also been developed as a web application with the loader using web services so that the loader and web app can be on separate servers. Might release soon too.
Windows application: this needs .Net framework 4.5 and Windows 7 (or above) (sorry for XP users)
Web application: this needs an IIS 6/7 for hosting the web app and services and .Net framework 4.0.
Version 0.2 (Note: you'll need to re-upload all your files as database has changed and some bug fixes)
1. Before downloading, note the requirements mentioned above. Win 7 and above and .Net 4.5
2. Download the installer from the link above and install it
3. A shortcut should be created on the desktop
4. If not, you can run the exe from the Bin\Release folder of your installation
5. This requires .Net 4.5. If you don't have it installed, I included it in the Install folder.
6. Please report any bugs. Cheers
1. App consists of the following...
a. Sessions: here you can choose a session and view the results
b. Graphs: same data as in sessions, but in graph form. For now just Race and Qualify graphs. One can right-click on the graph to move it, use mouse wheel to zoom in and out and left-click to view the data on the clicked point
c. General Statistics and Championship: these are not implemented yet
d. Loader: here is where you can load the rF2 xml files. Note that you can set the default xml folder in the Settings.
