Description (Click to toggle Visibility)

rFactorMonitor is an add-on application for rFactor. It can be used to broadcast rFactor sessions in real time either on a LAN or over the internet.

Feature list:
- Relaying all the live game statistics and track condition(including practice and race session) in rFactor to every single audience in the internet.
- Relaying the games in rFactor not only from the local system, but also from any other servers in the internet.
- The rFactor being transmitted can be run as a game server, or connected to a paticular server as a player or audience.
- Downloading and displaying track maps and sectors automatically.
- Able to display every player's position on the track, driving route and fighting details.
- Recording down the single-lap statistics of every player in the current session.
- Displaying all the semaphores, e.g, yellow flag, start lights.
- Highlighting incidents occurred immediatly, e.g, ranking changes, the fastest lap timing.
- Fast-forward and pause functions when playing relay files.

Future Planning:
- Instant playback function, similar as Instant Replay in rFactor.
- Broadcasting text infomation, allows the broadcast of text news to audiences.
- P2P relay service, allowing larger number of audiences.

FAQ:
- How big the network bandwidth does the rFactorMonitor require?

The bandwidth occupied by the rFactorMonitor is related with the number of cars and audiences. Generally, 0.13-0.14kb of network bandwidth is occupied per car per second.
Suppose there are 10 racing cars in the server, for each audience, rFactor uploads or downloads 1.3-1.4kb of data from the server per second. 10 audiences will occupy 13-14kb of bandwidth.

- Will the rFactorMonitor affect the fluency of the network games in the rFactor?

Should be no, it is because rFactorMonitorPlugin(rFactor service) is limited to one connection at a time, the bandwidth occupied by the rFactorMonitor from the rFactor server does not change with the change of number of audiences. When there are 10 racing cars in the server, only 1.3-1.4kb of bandwidth will be occupied by the rFactorMonitor from the rFactor game server. This bandwidth requirement is less than a rFactor client connected as an audience.

Hi all

Has anyone heard if this is being updated for rFactor 2?

There seem to be several web based monitors but i much prefer the stand alone style like this one.

Track files get generated on the fly when you connect to the server.

Need new .track files for more tracks. Is it possible to make our own to add? What format are the .track files?

Thank you and have a great day!

Is there any way to connect to a relay server via a proxy? I'd want to use this software on sunday at my work office and there I am behind a proxy server.

Can you change the name of the process to the name of the starter exe file (for example rfactor_monitor_brkart.exe, rfactor_monitor_fsone.exe)? Now all of the rfactor monitors called to java, and i can not kill only one of them by the process name. Thank you!

Hi BeBa,

is it possible that You could write something similar for GTR2 or maybe this version is able to be converted for GTR2?

Hi all,

Very nice tool, but I have some trouble with it.

I run 5 dedicated server on the same machine.
I put the dll in all the 5 plugin directories
I put the .ini files with the following ports
Server 1 = 32211
Server 2 = 32212
Server 3 = 32213
Server 4 = 32214
Server 5 = 32215

When I start the rfactormonitor.exe on the server, for some servers it works well, for other I always get the same error : connection refused ! connect

Any idea what the problem could be ?
