Live for Speed

The telemetry of Live for Speed 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 Live for Speed easily. More on that in the following tutorial.


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 Live for Speed is selected in the list.

  1. The red X shows that Live for Speed is currently not configured
  2. This button sets the Live for Speed configuration, so that it provides data for the SIM Dashboard Server application (Live for Speed 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 Live for Speed is currently not running but was started at least once!

Select the game executable by clicking in the textbox to locate your game installation (for non Steam games).

Click on the button Modify game config for telemetry.

The application updates the configuration of Live for Speed 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 Live for Speed 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 installation dir

Make sure that Live for Speed is currently not running but was started at least once!

Open the installation dir of the game and locate the file cfg.txt

Open the file with a text edit (e.g. Notepad)

Find the settings in the textfile

Locate the entries:

OutGauge Mode 1

OutGauge Delay 1

OutGauge IP 127.0.0.1

OutGauge Port 4444

OutGauge ID 0

Make sure that they match or change them to the above values. If any of these settings is not in the file just add it manually.

Open the script dir

Open the subfolder data\script of your LFS installation.

Open the file autoexec.lfs with a texteditor (e.g. Notepad)

Edit the autoexec.lfs file

Add the line /insim 29999 at the very bottom of the file if its not already inside the file.

Now save the textfile (Make sure that the file ending is .lfs and NOT .lfs.txt!)Afterwards you can start the game.
