Forza Motorsport 7

The UDP telemetry of Forza Motorsport 7 is enabled within the HUD and Gameplay Settings of the game.

PC Gamers have two Options

Option 1: The game sends the data to the SIM Dashboard PC Application

  • the PC Application sends the data to the SIM Dashboard App(s) and further applications (if required)
  • This approach is described on this page
  • An additional step is required, because Forza Motorsport 7 is a Windows Store Game, which runs in a Sandbox, which disables communication with your own PC by default

Option 2: The game sends the data directly to the SIM Dashboard App

  • This is the same approach that is also used by console players
  • To use this approach follow the help page for Forza Motorsport 7 on consoles.
  • Also activate the Xbox Platform in the App Settings -> General Tab -> Select your Gaming Platforms, to show the console dialogs in the app

Die SIM Dashboard App gibt dir Zusatzanzeigen für deine Lieblings PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One & Xbox Series X/S SIM Racing Spiele. Wähle aus über 200 anpassbaren Widgets und erstelle dir deinen persönlichen Zusatzbildschirm. Ob Tachometer, Lenkradanzeige oder Zeitenmonitor, du hast die Wahl, alles ist möglich!

Step 1

  1. Open the Games Tab of the SIM Dashboard PC Application
  2. Select the game Forza Motorsport 7 from the list
  3. Click on Click here to unlock the Sandbox (Step 1)

If the Sandbox is already unlocked, the info text in the PC Application shows Step 1 (Sandbox unlocked): OK. Proceed with Step 2.

Step 2: Open the game options

Now open the Game Options, either from the Mainscreen of the game: Progress Tab -> Options -> HUD or from the Pause Menu: Options -> HUD

Set the options

  • DATA OUT-IP-ADDRESS: (this is the localhost, the PC itself)
  • DATA OUT-IP-PORT: the Port that has been specified in the SIM Dashboard PC Application (the default is 4843)
  • Output Format for Datapacket: Dashboard

Use the keys F (PC) or X (XBOX) to adjust the values

You are now ready to play the game!
