Installing spotter packs in iRacing is a simple process that enhances your race day communication and strategy. Spotter packs consist of audio samples and a text file that modify the existing spotter messages.

To install spotter packs, you need to create a subfolder in the C:\Program Files (x86)\iRacing\sound\spcc\ directory and name it after the pack. Then, you can switch between packs by selecting them from the Voice Pack dropdown in the sound tab of the Options dialog.

Additionally, you can customize the spotter’s behavior by modifying the [SPCC] section of the app.ini file. It is important to record the audio samples as mono uncompressed wave files and connect them to spotter message-ids in the spmsg.txt file.

Key Takeaways:

  • Installing spotter packs in iRacing improves race day communication and strategy.
  • Create a subfolder in the specified directory and name it after the spotter pack to install.
  • Switch between packs by selecting them from the Voice Pack dropdown in the Options dialog.

Creating Your Own Spotter Sound Packs

If you’re looking to personalize your iRacing experience, creating your own spotter sound packs can add a unique touch to your races. By following a few simple steps, you can create custom spotter packs that reflect your style and preferences.

To get started, you’ll need to record audio samples as mono uncompressed wave files. These samples will be the voice prompts that your spotter will use during races. Make sure to record clear and concise samples for each spotter message you want to modify.

Creating Your Own Spotter Sound Packs

Once you have your audio samples ready, you’ll need to connect them to spotter message-ids in the spmsg.txt file. This file allows you to attach a specific wav file and corresponding text string to each spotter message. You can even attach multiple wave/text pairs to each unique id, giving you the flexibility to create diverse and dynamic spotter packs.

If you want to take it a step further, you can modify the spotter messages to add color or even translate them into a different language. By using the Windows-1252 code page (ISO 8859-1), you can ensure character support for different languages. Additionally, you have the option to customize the handling of numbers in spotter calls by recording specific number samples and using the SPCC_N#_EQ variant for exact matches.
