Rigs of Rods

The telemetry of Rigs of Rods 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 Rigs of Rods easily. More on that in the following tutorial.


The SIM Dashboard App gives you additional gauges for your favorite PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One & Xbox One Series X/S 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 Rigs of Rods is selected in the list.

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

  1. Parameters:

    • Select the game executable by clicking in the textbox to locate your game installation
    • optional (should not be necessary): Change the data port
  2. Click on the button Modify game config for telemetry.

The application updates the configuration of Rigs of Rods afterwards.

Automatic configuration finished

If everything worked as expected, the list shows the correct configuration (1) (with a green checkmark) and the status indicator on the right side (2) changes to green as well.

You can now start Rigs of Rods 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 Rigs of Rods is currently not running but was started at least once!

Open the path My Documents -> My Games -> Rigs of Rods -> config and locate the file RoR.cfg

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

Find the settings in the textfile

Locate the entries:

OutGauge Mode=1

OutGauge IP=127.0.0.1

OutGauge Port=1355

OutGauge Delay=1.000000

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.

If you modified the Port in the Rigs of Rods Parameters of the SIM Dashboard PC Application to something else than 1355, make sure to enter the same port into the RoR.cfg as well.

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

In the Game

You can also verify and enter the parameters in the game UI.

Select the Controls tab

Tick the Enable OutGauge protocol option

OutGauge IP: 127.0.0.1

OutGauge Port: 1355

OutGauge delay=1.000

Make sure that they match or change them to the above values. If any of these settings is not correct adjust it to these values.

If you modified the Port in the Rigs of Rods Parameters of the SIM Dashboard PC Application to something else than 1355, make sure to enter the same port into the Game Settings as well.
