Capture Live Telemetry BETA 1.0

Script written in PERL to Capture Live Game Data being Outputted by Simtools

  1. Charlie Hein
    This PERL script has helped me capture a ton of Data for Video Ride Creator, Hope it Helps you too!

    Requirements:
    ActivePERL (https://www.activestate.com/activeperl)
    Window 7 (Only OS I have Tested, to date)
    SimTools
    DataCapture.zip (Download Now)

    Instructions:
    Once you have ActivePERL Installed and SimTools is interpreting the game data to your liking

    Extract DataCapture.zip (Should have a datacapture.bat and script.pl file inside)


    SimTools Interfacing Settings

    Interface Type = "NETWORK"
    IP = "127.0.0.1"
    Port = "2424"

    OutPut Bit = "8"
    OutPut Type = "Decimal"

    Startup - Output = "start" -ms

    **VERY IMPORTANT TO DEFINE ALL AXISES for Video Ride Creator

    Define Each Axis (The Axis order above is the standard order in which most programs read data columns)

    SAVE!



    Start the Game of your Choosing
    Verify SimTools is Reading Game (Game Manager should say "Game Running")

    Run "datacapture.bat" (double click to run)
    upload_2017-12-23_20-21-3.png

    Once you captured the game YOU MUST TURN OFF the GAME MANAGER (By clicking the ON button) - This will finalize the captureData.txt file (Below)

    In the SAME location as "datacapture.bat" look for a new file generated named "capturedData.txt"
