Fanaleds Readme

Fanaleds is able to automatically configure games for you. In Fanaleds, press "help" and then press "Setup games automatically". Select a drive or folder where you have games installed and Fanaleds will setup all games for you.

If you want to do it the old way, you can do it manually.
For an overview of features per game we would like to refer to this page.

  • Copy the "FanaLEDsPluginETS2.dll" plugin from the "additional\ETS2 Plugin" folder in the Fanaleds installation folder.
  • Paste this file in the "bin\win_x86\plugins" folder in the Euro Truck Simulator 2 installation folder. Example: D:\Euro Truck Simulator 2\bin\win_x86\plugins.
  • If the plugins folder does not yet exists, create it.
  • If you're using the x64 version of the game also make sure to copy that version of the plugin!

  • Make sure your Live for Speed copy is up to date (0.6B)
  • Open cfg.txt in your main Live for Speed folder (where the LFS.exe is)
  • Find the line that says "OutGauge Mode" and change the number behind it to a 1 or 2.
  • Change your OutGauge port to 30000 Save and exit the file.
  • Open LFS.exe and press "/". Directly after that type "insim=29999" so you get /insim=29999

OMSI - Der Omnibussimulator

  • Paste the two files in the plugins folder in the installation folder for OMSI. Example: D:\OMSI\plugins

In order to get the RevLEDs working in Live for Speed you will need a custom profile. Download one here.

Project C.A.R.S.

  • Enable the shared memory option under "Options > Gameplay > Use Shared Memory"
  • After you have enabled the shared memory, you have to disable the native support to cancel interference. Go to "Options>Controls>Configure>RPM/Gear Display", and disable it.

rFactor / Automobilista

  • Before playing you need to install the rFactor plugin. This file should be located in the "additional\rFactor plugin" folder in the Fanaleds installation path.
  • Copy the "FanaLEDsPlugin.dll" file to your "rFactor\Plugins" folder. Example: D:\rFactor\Plugins

rFactor 2

  • Before playing you need to install the rFactor plugin. This file should be located in the "additional\rFactor2 plugin" folder in the Fanaleds installation path.
  • Copy the "FanaLEDsPlugin.dll" file to your "rFactor2\Plugins" folder. Example: D:\rFactor2\Plugins

Navigate to "rFactor2\UserData\Controller\ClubSport Wheel.ini" and look for these two lines:


  • Use Additional Hardware Features="1" // Whether to use additional hardware features like steering wheel LEDs
  • Hardware 3Digit Display="1" // If hardware has 3-digit display, 0=off, 1=gear, 2=speed

If you change the "1" values to "0", native support will no longer be enabled so it does not interfere with Fanaleds.

Note: If you're using a custom profile, edit the corresponding .ini file!
