Assetto Corsa Competizione

The telemetry of Assetto Corsa Competizione is enabled within a configuration file outside of the game. The SIM Dashboard Server application should already be installed. The application supports you with an automatic configuration feature which can enable telemetry of Assetto Corsa Competizione easily. More on that in the following tutorial.

If you are wondering why the game already works without configuration: Most of the game data can be retrieved without any configuration, but special data like the names and driven distances of the other drivers require the following configuration.


The SIM Dashboard App gives you additional gauges for your favorite PC, PS4 & XBOX SIM Racing games. Select from more than 200 customizable widgets and create your personal display. Tachometer, Steering wheel display or timing screen, everything is possible, it's up to you.

Overview

This screenshot shows the Interface of the SIM Dashboard Server application. Click on the tab Games to get the shown view. Make sure that the entry Assetto Corsa Competizione is selected in the list.

  1. The red X shows that Assetto Corsa Competizione is currently not configured
  2. This button sets the Assetto Corsa Competizione configuration, so that it provides data for the SIM Dashboard Server application (Assetto Corsa Competizione must be closed when using this button).

Automatic configuration

This part of the tutorial is dedicated to the automatic configuration, which should always be tried first, because its much easier than the manual configuration.

Perform automatic configuration

Make sure that Assetto Corsa Competizione is currently not running but was started at least once!

After you set up the port (1) and clicked on Save config (2) to save the settings, click on the button Modify game config for telemetry (3).
The application updates the configuration of Assetto Corsa Competizione afterwards.

Automatic configuration finished

If everything worked as expected, a confirmation message (1) appears, the list shows the correct configuration (2) (with a green checkmark) and the button for the automatic configuration (3) on the right side is hidden.

You can now start Assetto Corsa Competizione and receive data in the SIM Dashboard Android App. Remember, that the SIM Dashboard Server application must be running while your are playing the game!

Manual configuration

This part of the tutorial is optional and should only be performed if the automatic configuration failed for some reason.

Open the folder with the configuration file

Make sure that Assetto Corsa Competizione is currently not running but was started at least once!

Open the folder C:\Users\YOURUSERNAME\Documents\Assetto Corsa Competizione\Config (YOURUSERNAME must be replaced with your current username).
Open the file broadcasting.json with a texteditor (e.g. Notepad)

Update the config file

Put the following info into the file:

{  
  "updListenerPort": 9000,  
  "udpListenerPort": 9000,  
  "connectionPassword": "asd",  
  "commandPassword: ""  
}

Please note: The game is looking for the entry updListenerPort at the moment. Probably a typo from the game developer. Add both entries updListenerPort and udpListenerPort to make sure it still works if the typo in the game gets fixed.

Make sure to replace the port (9000 in this case) with the one you specified within the SIM Dashboard PC Application (default is 9000).

Basically you can put any valid port and password in the config file, because SIM Dashboard will always grab and use the one that is specified in the file. Even if the port does not match the one specified in SIM Dashboard it will still work.

If you are using multiple applications that modify the config file or the game is modifing the config file on its own, don't panic, you can ignore the red cross in SIM Dashboard in this case.
