This plugin reads the axis and buttons on a joystick and outputs these values in SimTools.
It has been tested with a Microsoft Xbox 360™Wireless Controller. Other joysticks will work too.
Surge, sway, heave, pitch, roll and yaw are fed with the axis positions of the joystick. Extra1 indicates the buttons pressed. Extra2 indicates the number of buttons pressed. Extra 3 finally indicates the position of the digital direction pad.
How to use:
Run GameManager in Admin mode.
Select the "game" Joypad.
Patch by selecting the installation directory of SimTools.
The patch installs a program "SimTools_Joystick.exe" and "SimTools_Joystick_Recorder.exe". These programs do nothing than trigger SimTools to read the Joystick values.
Run GameEngine & GameEngine.
Run SimTools_Joystick.exe or – if you watn to record the data – run SimTools_Joystick_Recorder.exe.
Play with your joystick and observe the values in TuningCenter.
You can also run a simulation/game in parallel. However certain games (like Codemasters and LFS) must be unpatched first.
