How to copy an App or Widget to customize it

For detailed documentation on how to create Apps and Widgets, see the respective docs from the main menu. Here is a summary of how to do it.

  1. First create 2 folders in your Documents/SIMRacingApps folder called "apps" and "widgets".
  2. Then, using 7-Zip, open the SIMRacingAppsServer.exe.
  3. Navigate to the "apps" or "widgets" folder and copy the one you are customizing to the respective folder in Documents/SIMRacingApps.
  4. Now you can modify the copied version and the server will look there first and serve it up to you.
  5. If you want to still have access to the original version, you will have to rename the folder and files as follows.
  6. Rename the folder in the "apps" or "widgets" folder to a name not already used by SRA.
  7. In the folder rename all of the files from the old name to the new name.
  8. Open each file and rename any references of the old name to the new name.
  9. Once created, save a screen shot to the icon.png.
  10. If want, submit your creation to the Issues list for me to evaluate and I will consider including it in a future release for everyone. Just Zip up your creation with the paths relative to Documents/SIMRacingApps and attach to the issue.
You can’t perform that action at this time.
