MS2 Stream Deck Plugin Installation Instructions
Version: 4.0 | Released on: May 21st, 2023
Installing MS2 SCS Telemetry plugin
To be able to gather data from ATS or ETS2, we have to first install the MS2 SCS Telemetry plugin. This is a small DLL file that was developed in accordance with SCS Software guidelines and enables third-party software to communicate with their games.
Download the zip file with the plugin from our Downloads page. Regardless what option you downloaded, the zip file will contain a folder called
plugins and a file called
ms2-telemetry.dll in it. Extract the downloaded zip file into a folder on your hard drive.
Locate where the ATS and/or ETS2 is installed on your hard drive. On the following image you can see an example where American Truck Simulator is installed on my hard drive (in my Steam library folder):
If your Steam library is in the default location, the paths should be:
C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\American Truck Simulator
C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\Euro Truck Simulator 2
Copy the plugins folder that we provided with our Stream Deck Plugin and paste it into your game's
bin/win_x64 folder. You can see on the above image how it should look after you copied it over. Although the image shows ATS, the exact same works for ETS2.
If you used our plugin before version 4.0, you already have the
plugins folder and a file called
scs-telemetry.dll in it. You can now remove this file as we do not use it any more. Make sure you use the new
ms2-telemetry.dll file instead.
Installing MS2 Stream Deck plugin
If you installed the plugin from the Elgato Stream Deck App Store, you do NOT need to do the next steps.
Only follow these steps if you downloaded the plugin from our website.
Download the complete plugin zip file from our Downloads page. You should already have done this in order to install the MS2 SCS Telemetry - See above!
Extract the downloaded zip file into a folder on your hard drive. This is the list of contents that you should end up with:
Install our plugin by double-clicking on the studio.mods.streamdeck.ms2.b.streamDeckPlugin file. Your stream deck software will install the plugin; Allow it a minute or two to finish the installation.
Start your Stream Deck software and add our action buttons from the menu on the right.
Assign the keyboard keys that you use in-game.
Do not add any button images to the actions - they are controlled automatically by our plugin.
Restart your PC if needed (in case the plugin does not show up in your Stream Deck software, or if it doesn't work)
