Virtual Trucker Rich Presence

Version 2.8.5

VTRPC NODEJS HAS BEEN DEPRECTATED. PLEASE USE TRUCKY OVERLAY!

Trucky Overlay Edition

Want to make things even easier? Just install Trucky Overlayat https://truckyapp.com/overlay and VTRPC will be included!

Important message

Any user found abusing Trucky API with VTRPC will be held accountable for any issues, and will most likely be banned from using Trucky API is the future. VTRPC is a tool for rich presence and abusing API will not be tolerated!

An easy tool to let others see your current job, truck, etc. using Discord Rich Presence!
Here's our Discord server for support: https://discord.gg/Zt49WDH

ETCARS 0.15.386 is required for the RPC to work, older versions will not work.
THIS VERSION INCLUDES ETCARS 0.15.386, YOU MUST DO A FULL INSTALL FOR THIS TO WORK

Things to note!

  • TruckersMP has their own Rich Presence which needs to be disabled in MP Settings!
  • Due to a few problems with previous ETCARS, you will need to install ETCARS 0.15.386 from our installer.
  • Promods is only supported on MP or via the developer argument
  • IF YOU HAVE ETCARS INSTALLED, PLEASE REINSTALL IT WITH ONE INCLUDED WITH VTRPC!

Supports Euro Truck Simulator 2, American Truck Simulator and TruckersMP.

Use in end user environment

  • Install Virtual Trucker Rich Presence using a release installation package from Releases Page .

Take a look to User Guide for further details.

Use in development environment

But here is the most important information:

REQUIRED PROGRAMS:

  1. Install and download the required programs.
  2. Open cmd/powershell by holding shift while right clicking inside the VTRPC directory.
  3. Install the required node modules by typing "npm i" in PS/CMD.
  4. Start the rich presence by typing "node index.js --dev". (--dev not required but recommended)
  5. Start ETS2/ATS.
  6. Select that and start playing!

Prepare for distribution

  • Run npm run compile .
  • Bundled exe will be written in release directory.

Create installation package

  • Install InnoSetup 5.6.1 - http://files.jrsoftware.org/is/5/innosetup-5.6.1.exe (YOU WILL NEED INNOSETUP 5!)
  • Install Inno Download Plugin - https://bit.ly/2KnepSA
  • Open setup\InnoSetup.iss with InnoSetup and compile it
  • Run iscc .\setup\InnoSetupScript.iss (Add to PATH variable env C:\Program Files (x86)\Inno Setup 5)
  • Installation package will be written in setup\Output\VirtualTruckerRichPresenceSetup.exe

Why is there a VBScript in this project?

We need RunHidden.vbs to run a packaged node.js app windowless in windows. So, the application is launched from that vbscript.

Logging

Log files are written in:

  • Windows: %appdata%\VirtualTruckerRichPresence\
  • Linux: /var/local/VirtualTruckerRichPresence/
  • MacOS: /home/Library/Preferences/VirtualTruckerRichPresence/

Startup parameters

  • --dev : enable verbose development logging and dev environment behaviour
  • --promods : enables promods mode, doesn't do much but change images
  • --logetcarsdata : prints in console every ETCARS data received
  • --logallactivity : prints in console every activity sent to Discord
  • --clientConfiguration : specify clientconfiguration.json path
