rFactor2 must send the game data as shared memory. A plugin is required for this. If it is already installed, this step can be skipped. Otherwise go to


download the .zip file (there is a download link in the middle of the page) and unzip it.

The unzipped archive contains a .dll file (rFactor2SharedMemoryMapPlugin64.dll). This file must be copied into the rFactor 2\Bin64\Plugins directory. For me the Steam directory is set to d:\games, so the file must be in this path: D:\Games\steamapps\common\rFactor 2\Bin64\Plugins

Now start rFactor and click “Options”
