If you haven’t already followed the Live Streamer User Manual then make sure you follow the steps listed here: Live Streamer Manual before you come back to read up on how the Remote Control Tab and Components work! If you have any other questions make sure you join us in our Discord support server!

Remote Control Tab

Within the Live Timing app open up the Remote Control Tab by pressing F4 or click the up arrow at the bottom of the screen. Depending on the project file you have loaded you will now see a selection of Components which controls the information that is displayed on your overlay. For our example we will use the Live Streamer project file included in your extracted iRacingLiveTiming folder.

The overlay displaying in OBS is split into Components which are controlled mostly from this Remote Control Tab. Each button can either simply Show or Hide a specific component or allows customisation of what information is displayed.

You can find a full list of all components at Overlay Component List along with download links, details on what each component does and example CSS code for changing its appearance.

The next page will explain how you can edit this Remote Control Tab and the Components within.

Editing Buttons and Components

With the Remote Control Tab open, press F2 to open the Edit Panel. The Edit Panel allows you to add buttons/text fields, labels and links as well as edit the properties of any buttons you select. If you Alt+Left Click a button in the Remote Control Tab, then all buttons attached to the same Component will be selected. You can now easily re-position the entire component within the Remote Control Tab, Delete, Import or Export the component from the options on the Edit Panel.

By only Left Clicking a button you can resize or re-position the individual button as you wish. When you select a button you can see a number of fields in the Edit Panel, you can now:

  • Change the appearance of the button
  • Change which component the button belongs to
  • Edit, Add or Delete Variable Values assigned to that button press

This last item can be very powerful for customising your overlay. We will look at it in more detail on the next page.

Editing Button Functions

Perhaps we created a new button or edited an existing one and want to add additional functionality to it. You can copy and paste the Left Mouse Click Variable Value from any other button in the Remote Control Tab into this new button.

Let’s say I want this button to simultaneously display the Driver Details, Driver Inputs and Track Map on our overlay at the same time:

  • With the F2 Edit Panel open, click on a Show button in the Remote Control Tab for one of the above components.
  • Copy the Left Mouse Click Variable Value simply by highlighting and Ctrl+C.
  • Now select your newly created button and paste into its Left Mouse Clickfield.
  • Rinse and repeat for as many components as you want to display.
  • Press F2 again to close the Edit Panel and the new button now displays multiple components from one click.
  • You probably want a hide button also, so open the Edit Panel again and select the newly created button. Click the Copy option in the Edit Panel and then Paste, this creates a duplicate button. Re-position this new button (and rename it), select the Left Mouse Click field again and you can now quickly change each Show command for Hide and now this button hides all of the same components from this single click!
  • Perhaps you want to have the Timing Tower set to Hide when you Show your Twitch Chat. You can use the same method again to create any combinations you want, similar to the image on the right!

You can find a full list of all components at Overlay Component List along with download links, details on what each component does and example CSS code for changing its appearance.
