    Welcome @bertrace.

    Have you asked the manufacturer?

    Do you know if the manufacturer has a commercial license arrangement for SimTools?

    Specifications of hardware would be a start.

    Create you own thread and post information and questions there.

    Greetings! Donal here. I have a GS-4 seat and am an avid iRacer. Historiker suggested I post here since I am interested in building my own 2DOF system. I have access to a full machine shop and am trying to make time to start building.
    Looks like a great community here and I hope that I can contribute as well as learn from everyone else.

    Cheers.

    Welcome @Todd Hunt.

    There is indeed a lot to learn but there is a great deal of information here and a bunch of really active members to help you out.

    Have a look through existing member builds for inspiration and the FAQs for information on specific build topics, particularly in the Building Resources section.

    When you are ready please start your own project thread and feel free to ask plenty of questions: http://www.xsimulator.net/community/forums/diy-motion-simulator-projects.22/

    Good luck with your project.

    @Donal Fitterer

    Feel free to give me a PM if you need any help getting the GS-4 working with a DIY 2DOF motion simulator.

    You can either run Sim Commander and SimTools side by side or you can get SimTools to run both the GS-4 and the 2DOF.

    On my rig I use Sim Commander to run my Accuforce, GS-4 and SimVibe then SimTools to run my 2DOF. The only exception to this is for flight sims because Sim Commander doesn't support flight sims. So for those games I get SimTools to control both the GS-4 and 2DOF

    Hi Guys!

    I am a student here in austria, and I will build a motion rig as final year project using SNC5 cylinders :)

    I am a car enthusiast in general which intruduced me to simracing too.
    I want to share our progress here, and hope to make find some inperation for future projects :)

    Best regards IJOJOI

    translation

    How many points are necessary to get a plugin any.
    I wanted to test my dynamic cockpit with Rfactor, Game Stok Car, Assetto Corsa or PCARS.
    Anyone to verify the possibility of migration to this reading platform

    Greetings to all ... I start asking forgiveness for the translation!
    I'm Ed city Lourenzo: Jundiaí / São Paulo - Brazil.
    System analyst, games lover and intusiasta simulation in principal with Auto.
    I have a prototype with two actuators 12V and controlled by a one Arduino, unfortunately my first project was consebido of sucatiado material, "Ferro-old" to have little access to first-rate material due to the high cost here in my beautiful country, however that did not discourage me.
    I created a plugin for Game Stok Car which forwards acceleration and braking, Longitudinal and vertical balance for my toy system of control that executes the command to the actuators.
    I intend to share with friends new possibilities and configurations, as thanking the attention of noble User noorbeast for providing me a donation and attention.
    Facebook search for Cockpit V-anny, or wait for new here, thanks!

    Sou Ed Lourenzo da cidade: Jundiaí / São Paulo - Brasil.
    Analista de Sistema, amante de games e intusiasta por simulação em principal com Automobilismo.
    Tenho um prototipo com 2 atuadores 12v e controlada por um arduino uno, infelizmente meu primeiro projeto foi consebido de material sucatiado, "Ferro-Velho" por ter pouco acesso a material de primeira linha devido o alto custo aqui no meu belo país, no entanto isso não me fez desanimar.
    Criei um plugin para o Game Stok Car que encaminha aceleração e frenagem, Longitudinal e balanço vertical para meu sisteminha de controle que efetua os comando para os atuadores.
    Pretendo compartilhar com os amigo novas possibilidade e configurações, já agradecendo a atenção do nobre usuario noorbeast por me propiciar um doação e atenção.

    no Facebook pesquise por Cockpit V-anny, ou aguarde novidades aqui, valeu!
