How it works:

Spoiler

WTRTI receiving data from localhost:8111, process it, and then displays it by using RTSS or by Built-in OSD(WTRTI). So Application won't do any modifications to the process of the game or its data.


Logging & MER calculation:

Spoiler

To start Logging, you have to switch to "Benchmark mode" (CTRL-ALT-B) and then press X to start process (this hotkey can be remapped Settings->Hotkeys->Benchmark mode->Logging (Toggle) ).

Generated .csv file is located in the "Logs" folder.

2. By default RTSS font is "Unispace" if you don't like it, you can change to something else, for example "Consolas, regular, 7".

3. Open WTRTI, and Add new indicators to the list.

4. Launch the War Thunder(*Recommended* to launch War Thunder after RTSS), and start "Test flight" (in main menu, OSD is hidden).
5. In "Test flight" now we can see our OSD, so lets move it, by using "Hotkeys" or you can change position in GUI "Settings->Layout->Position".

VR:

Spoiler
  • VR support implemented with SteamVR, requires it to be installed.
  • SteamVR Controller Bindings support. Allows you to assign VR controller buttons to specific WTRTI actions. To make settings to be available in SteamVR, you need first go in a "Test Flight" or a Battle, and then select WTRTI from the list of programs in the SteamVR's Controller Bindings window.
  • Hotkeys:

          CTRL-ALT-V - toggles "HMD tracking" mode.
          CTRL-ALT-Z - toggles "Left controller tracking" mode.
          CTRL-ALT-X - toggles "Right controller tracking" mode.
          CTRL-ALT-S - saves overlay's position and rotation from "tracking" modes to the no "tracking" mode.
          SHIFT-ALT-R - resets overlay's position and rotation(x:0.0, y:0.0, z:-0.5).
          SHIFT-ALT-<LEFT/RIGHT> - moves overlay on X axis.
          SHIFT-ALT-<UP/DOWN> - moves overlay on Y axis.
          SHIFT-ALT-<PAGE UP/PAGE DOWN> - moves overlay on Z axis.
          SHIFT-ALT-Q - decrease overlay's size.
          SHIFT-ALT-E - increase overlay's size.

 

  • For Oculus users:

          To make the game to run through SteamVR, you have to set the compatibility mode to Windows 7, for aces.exe in win32 and win64 folders.
          How-To: In the game root folder, open win32 folder and find aces.exe, open its Properties and set Compatibility mode to Windows 7:

          Do the same for aces.exe in win64 folder.

          It is also recommended to run the game through Steam.

Custom Localization:

Spoiler

After the first launch of the program, a "Localization" folder will be created, which will contain a localization sample ("Sample" folder with "Description" and "Translation" files). Use it as a template for localization.
For localization to be recognized by the program, you need specify an unique language name in the "Description" file. Also, give an unique name to the folder where the "Description" and "Translation" files are located. A folder named "Sample" will be ignored by the program.
"Description" and "Translation" files must be UTF-8 encoded.

 

In the future, to update your localization to the latest version of the program, use the command line(recommended to make a backup before that):
   WTRTI.exe -ul "Translation file"
Then you can continue to localize "Translation" file.


Fonts:

Spoiler

Recommended to use monospace fonts. Here is a list some of them:
- Consolas
- Unispace
- Default Normal (Copyright (c) 2009 by Oleg Macujev) - this one is using by the game.


Hotkeys:

Spoiler
  • ALT + SHIFT + LEFT/RIGHT - moves OSD along the X axis.
  • ALT + SHIFT + UP/DOWN - moves OSD along the Y axis.
  • CTRL + ALT + F12 - toggles showing of OSD.
  • CTRL + ALT + B - toggles Benchmark mode.


In the "Benchmark mode":

  •  X - toggles process of logging/MER (hotkey can be remapped, "Settings->Logger->Toggle logging").

 

Troubleshooting:

Spoiler

"OSD is not show up" / "Data is not updated in the main window":

      If you have Antivirus, try to add exclusion for WTRTI.

      For McAfee users:

Spoiler

In the Firewall, allow WTRTI to have full network access("Open to all device").

"Flight data is not being written to the CSV file":
      Perhaps Antivirus restricts write access, try to add exclusion for WTRTI.

Will you be providing source code so users can be sure it doesn't do anything that could lead to account termination?

In the near future, I do not plan to open source. This program does not do anything illegal. It only processes data from a localhost:8111.

However, virus is detected in Ver0.61 or later.

Is this just me?

There is http requests and no Code signing(cost n$), so windows defender can recognize it as trojan, although there is none.

Amazing work!

I feel that something along this functionality should be stock - the data can be legally accessed by the player, so why not give an option to customize the HUD without some amazing software like this.


Hope someone from Gaijin confirms that they don't have anything against it - it breakes no rules AFAIK, but it would be great to be just a bit more sure.

I have a question - what is the chance that any future updates may break this widget?

I'm using Google Translate so sorry if English is wrong

 

I'm using this tool with a layout like the one on the left, but I think a layout like the one on the right is also possible if you can insert a blank

There is also a way to have the application change to multiple launchable to place the item in multiple places

Oh, know I probably understand what you talk about...You want something like a group-layout. Every group has different position....I thought about this before...maybe in a future, I'll make it.
