Kapps
I just installed Kapps, but looks like nothing works
If you use anti-virus, then add Kapps to exception list. All exe files related to Kapps located here:
  • %LocalAppData%\kapps
  • %LocalAppData%\kapps\app-1.X.X
  • %LocalAppData%\kapps\app-1.X.X\resources\app.asar.unpacked\iRacingBrowserApps
  • %LocalAppData%\kapps\app-1.X.X\resources\app.asar.unpacked\libs
Kapps stuck on splash screen
  • disable anti-virus and install Kapps again
  • download Kapps' install file using different browser
  • launch Kapps as Administrator
I open Racing Overlay and I'm sitting in my car in iRacing, but Racing Overlay doesn't show any info
  • go to Apps → Logs page and check that there is info appears, and not just gray rectangle. If there is no info, then your antivirus deleted server.exe file, you need to add Kapps' files into exception list of your antivirus (see above) and install Kapps again
  • clear IP Address field in System section of Racing Overlay
I experience stutters while using Racing Overlay
  • enable/disable Hardware Acceleration in Kapps → Settings
  • disable Nvidia G-Sync

  • disable Game Mode in Windows, and GPU Scheduling (type Graphics Settings in Windows Search)
  • if using OBS, launch OBS as admin

  • try experimental Open in iRacing feature (can also reduce FPS in System section for this feature)
  • alternatively you can open Racing Overlay or Fuel Calculator in a browser of your phone/tablet, go to About page of Racing Overlay or Fuel Calculator and follow Dual PC Streaming section
  • one user reported that after replacing CMOS battery and resetting BIOS helped eliminate stutters
Only Apps button is clickable and others just grayed out
Right click on app button and choose Enable.
Does Kapps support Racing Overlay in VR?
No. But you can open individual layers of Racing Overlay as separate windows and pin them into VR through OVR Toolkit:
  1. uncheck all options of Open Layers setting in System section
  2. press Open Layers in Windows
  3. pin opened windows to your VR with OVR Toolkit
When I play iRacing I don't see Racing Overlay, but if I Alt+Tab then I see it
Racing Overlay is only intended to work in Windowed Mode, for that you need to set in iRacing's Graphics settings to not use Fullscreen and also uncheck Border, then restart iRacing.
Alternatively you can try experimental feature, that let you run Racing Overlay in Fullscreen mode - Open in iRacing, you can find that button along side with Open in a Window on Racing Overlay settings page.
When I try to install Kapps I see error window with "Open Setup Log file" button
You need to:
  1. exit Kapps completely, make sure non of the Kapps related applications are still running in Task Manager (Kapps.exe, server.exe, betbot.exe, chat.exe, and bettertp.exe)
  2. remove folder %LocalAppData%\kapps
  3. install Kapps again
If doesn't help, then try to:
  1. disable antivirus
