Current Version: 1.25 OtterHud got used this many times already since v1.2 (24th April 2021) Some impressions: Spoiler: Click here* How to use it? 1. You will need to pull the Data-Feed from the Game to fill the OtterHud with values. There are 2 options to do so: (NEVER run both options the same time!) Option 1: Download the dash.zip from the repository, extract all files and run the dash.exe yourself. Download here: https://otterhud.github.io/dash.zip OR Option 2: Run the latest CrewChief version and enable the option "Enable Web-Hud integration" in the settings Download here: http://thecrewchief.org/ 1. Click on "Properties" in the main Crew-Chief window 2. Type "hud" in the top-right search box You will see the option "Enable Web-Hud integration (R3E only) (boolean)" on the left side, enable it! 2. You need to change the startup Parameter for RaceRoom in the Steam launcher Right-Click RaceRoom entry in your Steam Game Library and select "Properties" In the new opened Window you have "LAUNCH OPTIONS" insert this into the text field: -webHudUrl=https://otterhud.github.io/ If you have other launch parameters set already, like triple screen or such, just go to the end of your entry leave a blank space and insert the above behind. And that's it! Launch your game and Drive safely! HIGHLY RECOMMENDED FOR PERFORMANCE Spoiler: *Click here* For those running the OtterHud combined with: High amount of AI Triple-Screens Or if you have Performance issues in General, due to some low/mid end Machine RaceRoom always starts multiple processes for the Game: RRRE.exe / RRRE64.exe which handles all the Game-Engine & Rendering stuff RRREWebBrowser.exe which handles the generation of Menu stuff in a WebBrowser, this also handles the OtterHud overlay itself. Both of these Processes are running, by default on all Cores of your CPU. And when your CPU hits the max, which can happen quite easily with alot of AI, the OtterHud is also affected. If your CPU is already struggeling to run all the AI smoothely, sure the OtterHud can make a impact on top of that. What you could try and i would suggest is: Decouple the RRREWebBrowser.exe process from the Main Game process, by setting the Affinity to the half your max cores, or a maximum of 4. So the game has dedicated cores which dont get affected by the OtterHud, and vice versa. As example: Total of 16 Cores RRRE64.exe to 12 cores (0-11) and RRREWebBrowser.exe to the last 4 (12-15) Total of 8 Cores RRRE64.exe to 4 cores (0-3) and RRREWebBrowser.exe to the last 4 (4-7) Total of 4 Cores Here you need to try, either: RRRE64.exe to 3 cores (0-2) and RRREWebBrowser.exe to the last 1 (3) or: RRRE64.exe to 2 cores (0-1) and RRREWebBrowser.exe to the last 2 (2-3) You can do that in the Task-Manager of Windows, but keep in mind that you have to do it again, each time you launch the game. Good alternative would be, to use a tool like "Process Lasso" (https://bitsum.com/) which has a option to make these AFFINITY changes as soon as the process starts. BE CAREFUL with this tool as it has options which could harm the overall performance of your Windows alot.
