We are proud to annouce an new version of rF_HighVoltage.
DRS & KERS for rFactor
The new version introduces the possibility to directly assign KERS & DRS to buttons and axis of your steering wheel, joystick or button box. But you are still able to use your keyboard to control KERS & DRS.
The use of 3rd-party software like joy2key is now not longer necessary.

That means, that you can deactivate DRS by either braking or pressing a button, in case you have to deactivate DRS where braking is not needed.
Another feature has been added to this release: DRS strength factor.
The DRS strength factor is a new setting in the RFM, which enables a modder to finetune the DRS effect which should be applied by rF_HighVoltage on activation.
KIKONI produced a small tutorial video which shows how simple it is to implement the additions to the rfm as a modder and to assign the buttons and axis as a driver.
- Added support for steering wheels, joysticks and button boxes
- Added second button for DRS deactivation
- Added DRS strength factor setting: Possibility to finetune the DRS effect on a specific mod
- Removed a bug where KERS didn’t work
- Enable/Disable DRS globally
- DRS disabled within the first 2 laps in a race session
- Up to 2 detection points
- Up to 4 activation zones
- Up to 2 block zones where the usage of DRS is permitted
- Free usage of DRS in practice, qualyfication and warm-up
- Usage of DRS only within the activation zones if the car was within 1 second to the competitor in front at the detection point
- Visually switch the rearwing when activating/deactivating DRS (Depending on the used mod)
- Enable/Disable KERS globally
- Control the strength of the KERS “effect”
- Control how long the much extra power is available per lap
- “Recharge” the battery when driving over the start/finish line
- When the battery is empty, KERS can’t be activated for the rest of the lap
- All performance relevant settings are configured using the RFM-file of the mod. That ensures that somebody who accidently modified settings in that file will get a mismatch error when joining a gameserver.
- Other settings (like key assignments) are store in a simple configuration file along with the program.
- Forces the drivers to use only original ISI software. Patched or cracked rFactor installations will not work with rF_HighVoltage!

Kikoni is one of guys behind the famous FSOne modification for rFactor.
While rF_HighVoltage has been tested with the FSOne, it isn’t limited to this specific modification. It’s quite easy to setup other mods to use rF_HighVoltage.
