Hi Alexandre. Thanks for the kind words 🙂
You can't control 2 dash independently.
You'd need to duplicate the dash and edit the copy so it doesn't change page anymore.
From memory the 3rd page is the relative leaderboard.
I included dedicated dashboards and overlays for the leaderboards so you could also use this on your extra monitor instead.

Hello Romain,

I want to use the universal dash for iracing as an overlay because i play in VR without an external screen.

I go to simhub, convert your dashboard into an overlay, i get the message saying it is too big and i am not able to spilt it because i cannot understand the way simhub works.

I have already modified an overlay to do what i want but it's the same problem I cannot change the main size and make it smaller.

What should i try ?

Thanks a lot

Hi, if this is your only "too large" overlay, you can still start a new layout from it (but can't add it to an existing one).
So you can only use one oversized overlay a a time.
https://github.com/SHWotever/SimHub/wiki/Dash-Studio-Overlays#overlays-size-limit

If you have multiple then you need to resize the dash to fit within the pixel count limit.
The fastest way is to put everything in a new widget and resize the widget (for each screen, so one widget per screen).
And then reduce the dash resolution to match the widgets.

Hi Romain,

I updated to the latest version (v1.1.0) and when opening Simhub now appears the error message below about the plugin (iRacingExtraProperties). Can you help me with the resolution?

Note: By the way, how do we identify in Dash or Simhub if the installed version is the most current or not? Anywhere to enter the version number?

Grateful.

Yours sincerely,
Alexandre

Hi,
I assume this is a message about "GetAllProperties" missing.
If so make sure SimHub is updated to 7.8.4
https://www.simhubdash.com/download-2/

Some dashboards (the ones with an idle screen) have an update notification on the idle screen.

Edit : I meant SimHub 7.4.8

Hello Romain, 

So if I get it right...

Let's say I want to make a multi page overlay (I play VR so no dashboard for me)

Idle page

Relative/Ranking page

Pits/Start page

Data/Fuel/Tires page.

The best way would be to get your pages out of your universal dashboard, remove all that I don't want, make each page a widget and then assemble them ? All widgets need to have the same dimension or can I have a larger one for relatives and ranking and a thinner one for pit in for example ?

Is there a video on simhub for dummies somewhere ? Even the box selection in the editor is unbelievably complicated, How do you select an item which is below another one ?.....

Thanks for all the help

PS in you last post you mention simhub 7.8.4 but I think you mean 7.4.8 right ?

Hi,
Yes, 7.4.8 is right.

Starting from the dash, try deleting everything except the pages and realign them to the top left.
Then resize the dash. You'll need the dash to be the size of the largest page.
You don't need to turn them into widgets unless you want a quick way to resize them.

Check out the wiki to learn about dash studio.
I've also heard good thing about Adam Heart YouTube tutorials.

Ok, SLOWLY getting there 🙂

I have a big problem to solve now, i can configure Simhub to change DASH preset with the steering wheel and change pages within the dash but with my overlay it does not work, I have 3 pages and the buttons which are changing the pages for the dash do not change the pages for the overlay.

What did I miss ?

Besides that I have destroyed your pit speed and distance overlay but i still cannot make it work properly, I'm more or less happy with the main page but I'm stuck with other pages right now.

Could I post here my overlay so that you guys have a look at it ?

Thanks a lot for the help

Hey @romainrob ,

A little issue I'm seeing with your relative.  I noticed the time behind seem to be way off.

I've attached a screenshot of yours and another which is actual.

Let me know if you're aware of this.  This is during the Suzuka 10hr.

Cheers!

Hello, 

 

Thanks for the great overlays / dashes!

I, however, have ran into a problem. I created a overlay which consist of the radar /w dots, modular input display, relative leaderboard and the pit/start assist. I've setup them the way I like, but the overlay is refreshing on a really low FPS, probably under 10. I've got the paid version of simhub, so 60FPS is an option. Upon checking the logs I found this spammed as soon as I join a iRacing session;

WARN - System.NullReferenceException: Object reference not set to an instance of an object.
at Romainrob.ExtraInputProperties.ExtraInputProperties.DataUpdate(PluginManager pluginManager, GameData& data)
at SimHub.Plugins.PluginManager.manager_DataUpdated(GameData data, IGameManager manager)

Do you think that this could be the reason? The warning is on the log file around 60 times every second! 

Also, what do you think causes it? I tried reinstalling the plugins, to no avail.

 

Thank you a ton for helping me!

What is the meaning of the red line at the iRacing standings leaderboard?

Hi,
Here are some info about overlay performance:
https://github.com/SHWotever/SimHub/wiki/Dash-Studio-Overlays#performances
Capping the game fps usually helps me the most.

Now the dots overlay is very large and the input display is the heaviest, due to the multiple charts. Maybe this combination is too much.
I'd test first with a single overlay, too make sure things works well in the best case and go from there.

Regarding the error. I don't think it would cause such a drastic performance issue.
You can try disabling the ExtraInputProperties plugin to stop if from spamming the logs as a test.

In the next update (soon tm), I'll include debug files, so errors popping up in the logs are not so generic.
If you still get the error after the next update, please zip and share this folder: C:\Program Files (x86)\SimHub\Logs

Hi,
I'll admit, my gap computation has it's quirks, mainly on the grid, first and last lap and when 2 cars are side by side.
Here it seems there is one lap added to the gap behind in the screenshot.

I suspect this is a team session related issue.
In team sessions some things get messy, as the data used by the plugin only partially updates when a team mate is driving. 
I don't test for team events at all anymore tbh.

Were you driving the car at that point?
If not did it fix itself on your next stint?
