Then start a session. Once you sit in the cockpit, move the mouse to the right in order to show the app sidebar. Scroll down until you find this symbom:


Download the the zip file attached to this post. Extract/unzip the content to your assettocorsa directory, e.g. in Steam\SteamApps\common\assettocorsa
The content will extract itself

(* Read the note below if this does not extract to the proper folders)

to app\python\helicorsa (for the app) and content\gui\icons (for the icons).
You can overwrite older version without problem.

Now start assetto corsa and enable the 'helicorsa' app in the settings/general:

What is this app?
Just a little radar of an aerial perspective, so you can see what's going on around your car.

Assetto Corsa

Application Add-on

From the 'Helicorsa' folder, open the 'Apps' folder and then the 'Python' folder.  Copy the 'Helicorsa' folder.  Now navigate back to 'Steam\SteamApps\common\assettocorsa' folder and open the 'Apps' folder and then the 'Python' folder. Paste the copied 'Helicorsa' folder there.

then click it. You will notice a window will show up, drag it wherever you want to start out. You will notice it will vanish after 5 seconds (you can still drag it). If you have problems to find it, just hide and re-show the app via the sidebar.
It will remain completely invisible until you are moving, and there's a nearby car (also moving)

Short: it will only be there if needed.

Hint: If it doesn't vanish after you moved the window around, re-open it again. It won't do this next time you start the game.

*NOTE:  Extracting the ZIP folder may only extract the 'Helicorsa' folder into the 'Assetto Corsa' folder and will not be installed for use in the game.  The 'Helicorsa' folder will contain 2 folders:

  • Apps
  • Content

Next navigate back to 'Steam\SteamApps\common\assettocorsa' folder and open the 'Helicorsa' folder.  Now open the 'Content' folder, the 'Gui' folder, then the 'Icon' folder.  Copy the 2 Icon files.

Navigate back to 'Steam\SteamApps\common\assettocorsa' folder and open the 'Content' folder, the 'Gui' folder, then the 'Icon' folder.  Paste the 2 Icon files there.
