Anti-Cheater (SimRacingTools) - Download / How To Use

View previous topic View next topic Go down  Message [Page 1 of 1]

Hi!

For the rFR GP Series S11, we're gonna be using a NEW anti-cheater software provided by SIM RACING TOOLS.

Its main advantages are:

- Very easy and simple to use after it's all installed and configured.

- It does NOT cause graphical lags on the game (it runs smooth on background while you play)

- There's NO need to send a log after you play (your game info is sent automatically and 'live' while you play)

...
STEP BY STEP INSTRUCTIONS:

- Step 1 - DOWNLOAD:

You need to create/register an account on their website ( [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] ), which is very quick, easy, simple and, obviously, for free.

Click on 'Download Client', at the top left of the screen.
[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

A new page will open.
Roll it down a bit and look for the following link (a little to the right) - and click on it (maybe the version is already higher than 2.20 - that's ok - just click on it anyway):
[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]
...
- Step 2 - INSTALL:

Unrar (extract) the 'SimRacingTools_installer.zip' file you've just downloaded.

Install it (as any other program), by clicking on the 'SimRacingTools_installer.exe' file.

You can install it at any folder you want on your computer (I suggest to create a folder called 'SimRacingTools' under your rFactor main folder).
[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]
...
- Step 3 - CONFIGURE (after the installation):

Open it on your computer (right-click on the 'SimRacingTools.exe' file and open it as Administrator - I also suggest to create a shortcut to it on your desktop).
[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

If it doesn't login automatically, you just need to type in your username (or email) and password - the same ones with which you've just registered at SimRacingTools website (Step 1).

Wait until it connects to the SimRacingTools server and 'sync' with your computer.

Click on the 'Config' icon, on the top right.
[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

Click on the 'rFactor 1' icon, in the middle.
[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

Click on the green 'Download' link to download the 'Telemetry Plugin, 32bit version'.
[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

It must be placed into rFactor 'Plugins' folder.
[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

Click on the green 'Download' link to download the 'Telemetry Configuration File'.
[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

It must be placed into your rFactor main folder.
[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]
...
- Step 4 - USE (after the configuration):

Open the anti-cheat software (right-click on the 'SimRacingTools.exe' file and open it as Administrator - I also suggest to create a shortcut to it on your desktop).

Wait until it connects to the SimRacingTools server.

Open your rFactor.

Play rFactor normally.

When you're done playing, just close rFactor first.

Then close the anti-cheat last.

...and that's it!

IMPORTANT:

After it's all installed and configured properly, YOU WILL ONLY NEED TO DO THE 'STEP 4' before each rFR League Events.
...
- Step 5 - JOINING OUR LEAGUE (inside SimRacingTools):

Now the rFR League drivers (you) must be added to the 'rFactor-Racers.com' league, inside SimRacingTools.

Go to their website again ( [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] ) - you must be logged in.

Click on 'Leagues' at the top middle.
[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

Browse for the 'rFactor-Racers.com' league and click on it.
[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

Click on 'Link To This League'.
[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]
...
CONGRATS - it's ALL done!!!
...
AGAIN:

After it's all installed and configured properly, YOU WILL ONLY NEED TO DO THE 'STEP 4' before each rFR League Events.
...

HOW DOES IT WORK?

The LAT can see the drivers who are connected to our league inside SimRacingTools, 'live', through their website.

For ALL the rFR League events, the drivers MUST be connected to our league inside SimRacingTools - meaning they MUST have their SimRacingTools anti-cheat opened, properly configured and working, right before opening rFactor and joining our server.

If a driver is not connected (doesn't have their anti-cheat opened and/or working properly), they will be asked to 'fix' that (by following the 'Step 4' instructions, otherwise they will be removed (kicked) from the event.

So, make SURE to turn your anti-cheat software ON, before opening rFactor and joining our server.

Once you're connected, the LAT gets 'live' feed/info from your game through the SimRacingTools website.

And IF someone is cheating by using any external program that gives any unfair advantage, and/or any car performance 'boost' (the actual cheat), or a known rFactor cheat software, or even if the LAT gets any 'unnatural' car components telemetry data/reading (like fuel that never ends, or tyres that never get worn, or increased grip, or engine power boosts/extra speed, etc), the SimRacingTools anti-cheat will accuse and inform the LAT 'live' - and IF a driver is caught cheating, they will be BANNED right away (both from the server and from the league) - and 'banned' means 'forever'...

So yes, please, do NOT cheat - play fair and have fun!  Smile

ATTENTION, EVERYONE!!!


This is a message for those who does NOT have the original rFactor:

The anti-cheater may recognize your rFactor.exe file as 'non-original' and then automatically classifies it as a potential cheat.

In order to fix that, you just need to get the file from the link below and replace your current one by it:

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

It's a very small file and the process is real quick and easy!

All drivers having this issue MUST solve it (by getting the file from the link above) - and you're gonna be informed right before the race if you're all 'clean', or still need the fix.

Still, as a general rule.. if your rFactor is NOT original, just go and get the file from the link above anyway.

(obviously, if your rFactor is original, just ignore this message.)

ATTENTION / IMPORTANT!!!


I hope everybody already sorted out and fixed any SimRacingTools problems.

There was an update about 2 weeks ago and people must reinstall the 2 plugins, from inside the SimRacingTools program.

It's all pretty simply if you read and follow the instructions (STEP 3) on the link below (which is actually the very first post in this topic, above):

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

You MUST have your SimRacingTools working properly to be allowed to race on the next event (this sunday, at Monza) - make sure you're good to go NOW (don't wait until the very last minute - our event will NOT be delayed because of that)!

Use SimSync to sync SimRacingTools and fix the update!

It may not work via SimSync (just sayin), because one of the files (plugins) that needs to be updated (an .INI file - the one that goes on rFactor root), has to have the folder path where the program (SimRacingTools) was installed on 'your own' computer - so it's not a file that we could share with each other.. it MUST be downloaded/updated from inside SimRacingTools itself - as explained on 'Step 3' on the first post above and etc - really easy to do anyway, guys!

The instructions say "...and that's it!"

Except that's not it Wink There is also another step after that.

I recommend removing that line from the instructions to avoid confusion.

"And that's it" reffers to Step 4 (how to actually use the anti-cheater) only.

That's why we separated everything in 'steps', with visual 'boxes' around them, so it's easier for people to read them, one by one - that's why it's called "Step by step instructions" and people are supposed to read all of them, carefully, until the very end.

Sorry for your issues with the program and I hope you were able to fix them and can join us in our future races!

I understand that's what you meant, but that is quite unclear to me. Perhaps you could change it to "And that's it! Now proceed to the next step." or something like that.

Everybody else got it just right.
But I'll consider that anyway.
Thanks for the suggestion.
