Codemasters - Use Simdash and Simtools simultaneously

There are a number of approaches to make all Codemaster games work with multiple programs -

@yobuddy recommends doing this: https://www.xsimulator.net/communit...imhub-dashboard-no-working.11017/#post-169164

You need to edit the "Documents\My Games\DiRT Rally\hardware_settings_config.xml" file.
Patch the game with SimTools and then open the file and find this line.
"<udp enabled="true" extradata="3" ip="" port="4123" delay="1" />"

what you want to do is copy it and add to more like this.
<udp1 enabled="true" extradata="3" ip="" port="20777" delay="10" />
<udp2 enabled="true" extradata="3" ip="" port="20778" delay="10" />
You may have to patch with the other apps to figure out the extradata=? value and the needed delay=? value first.

@puresound recommends doing the following: http://www.xsimulator.net/community/threads/codemasters-dirt-rally-plugin.6823/page-11#post-93765

Example :GRID2
Copy the grid executable (grid2_avx.exe ) to your desktop
Then rename by (drt.exe)=DiRT Rally.
Return back the file to the folder and execute it
All of CodemastersProxyServer_v2.4.2a + simdash + simtools will see the game as DiRT Rally

Here @prodigy explains how to use the Codemasters proxy so you can use Simdash and Simtools simultaneously: http://www.xsimulator.net/community/threads/codemasters-dirt-rally-plugin.6823/page-3#post-78221


Another approach outlined by @Martyn is to change the port to concurrently run the likes of SimCommander and SimHub with SimTools: https://www.xsimulator.net/community/threads/no-move-with-dirt-rally.10704/#post-139939

Edit file hardware_settings_config.xml in \documents|My Games\Dirt Rally\hardwaresettings.
Find and edit part which begins with
and end
</motion_platform> and edit it like this:

<dbox enabled="true" />
<udp enabled="true" extradata="3" ip="" port="20777" delay="1" />
<udp enabled="true" extradata="3" ip="" port="4123" delay="1" />
<fanatec enabled="false" pedalVibrationScale="1.0" wheelVibrationScale="1.0" ledTrueForGearsFalseForSpeed="true" />

This way you should have simtools AND Sim Hub working.For rest of your stuff you have to find out which ports the software is using and add another row like
<udp enabled="true" extradata="3" ip="" port="PORT NUMBER FOR SIM COMMANDER" delay="1" />
for each software.
