I wonder if anyone can help. I had occasion to reactivate rFactor by installing Version 1255G. All seems OK except I can no longer get XD to work. The map works fine.
Is XD not compatible with version 1255G?

EDIT: Don't worry - got sorted

@ Fazerbox
Thank you again for the wonderful plugin now I have some new questions

Can I run this plugin on multiple instals from one common plugins folder or do I need to keep the new plugins folder of every new instal of rf?

Edit:
Answer is, yes you can. Simply copy and paste the map dll and ini file from orginal rf instal folder to new rf instal folder. Thats it!! Tested and working fine!!

Will this also together with wombats fps fix and xd all att the same time? And how would one edit the ini file for this?
Bondkiller on Oct-06-2011

Change to what exactly? sorry for the stupid questions but all the ; cunfuses,,
Also when in rotation mode, I load a track and the map starts as too big. I zoom out, and no problem, untill I load the next track and its too big again.

What else would be cool if one could adjust where the dot that is u is. It could be lower down so u would see more of whats infront and less of whats behind on the map, especialy in rotation mode.

Can it be run together with xd plugin and wombats fpsfix at same time?

RealFeel uses CTRL(RIGHT) + NUMPAD_0 and CTRL(RIGHT) + NUMPAD_DOT

To avoid conflict in MapPlugin use CTRL(LEFT) + NUMPAD_0 or CTRL(LEFT) + NUMPAD_DOT.

It is not good for you, edit Map.conf and change keys KeyboardKey (default NumPad_0) and KeyboardKeyZoom (default NumPad_DOT).
