This is one for admin to look at, hopefully not much of a problem, just a time issue.Just a quick thanks to reider for the help. rFactor itself has a plugin folder for external hardware plugins and so I naturally assumed that was the rFactor/plugin directory to be used. Once that was squared away things progressed rapidly. The LCD is up and working and its everything I had hoped it would be. Its a very cool hardware option for us sim-racers!
Two follow-up/feature requests:
1. Can the plug-in in the future have more Imperial options for fuel, water, and oil temperatures?
This shouldn`t be a problem. Something along the lines of one of the present Winamp screens that Dark produced in the good old days, with the left and right Spectrum Anyliser. Then amend the screen display to suit the RPM as input data instead of sound maybe.2. Is it possible to to use unique characters and make a bar graph-style tachometer (in this case, just using solid character blocks that would progress from left to right as rpm's climbed)?
