    NOTE: This is not a native integration and requires running a separate executable with the game.
    (Also I think this is the most relevant section?)

    I made a Discord Rich Presence mod for the game, along with a corresponding C++ application to receive the messages from BeamNG, and send them to Discord.

    SCREENSHOTS

    HOW TO INSTALL AND USE

    Read this very carefully. Multiple people have tested this and confirmed it works

    Installation
    1. Get the Rich Presence server from my Github, and extract it somewhere
    https://github.com/Dummiesman/BeamNG-RichPresence/releases

    *If you don't trust the EXE release, you can read over the source code. If you still don't trust it you can compile it yourself if you wish
    *Virustotal scans of the exe (2 false positives, again, look at the source)
    2. Get the BeamNG portion of the mod (click HERE to download)
    3. Copy the ZIP file from step 2 into Documents\BeamNG.drive\mods\

    How To Use It
    The following steps are given with the assumption that BeamNG.drive is not running

    1. Run BeamDiscordRPCHelper.exe (from step 1 of installation)
    2. Run BeamNG (From Steam or BeamNG.drive.exe, not directly from Bin32 or Bin64)

    That's it! Your Discord should now show what you are doing ingame! :)


    !!PLEASE READ!!
    Please don't exit the helper application prematurely. It's connected to the game and will close itself
    once you close the game. If you exit the window prematurely, the application has no chance to clean up properly.

    Pictures of levels / vehicles are done from the Discord side. Please don't complain that a mod vehicle/map thumbnail doesn't work. It is not possible to "fix" that as it's loading a server sided image.
