    Welcome Milton! It looks like you have an ambitious simulator planned, so I'm looking forward to seeing how that turns out. Just yesterday I was searching the internet for an old band from Bakersfield (The Examples) that was popular with my circle of friends when I was in college in central CA.

    Hi.
    Great resource. I have a 737 flight sim from Flightdeck solutions (jetmax) mounted on a 4'x4' (1.5m x 1.5m) fixed base and now ready to go for the motion platform. Looking forward to meeting anyone that has something similar done or in process.

    Welcome @Foehn.

    There are many French members here and even a French social thread: http://www.xsimulator.net/community/#international-social-chats-and-conversations.155

    On the main forum please use English, even if it is via Google translate. It saves other members time trying to work out who may need help and who is just posting a comment. We have bi-lingual speakers from many different language group so if Google Translate really messes it up they can help clarify what was intended.

    I would have thought prosimu could supply pre-configuered motion profiles. Luckily SimTools has some reasonable documentation, so start there: http://www.xsimulator.net/simtools-complete-documentation/

    There is also a SimTools settings section in the FAQs that covers tip and tricks to getting the most out of SimTools: http://www.xsimulator.net/community/faq/simtools-settings-tips-and-tricks.18/category

    Hello everybody. I'm from Italy owner of a Frex SCM moved more than one year ago to Lince software. I use it to simulate driving games as RBR, Dirt Rally (in the past Dirt 2 and 3), Assetto Corsa. Now Project Cars just bought but for the moment the movement is not working. That's the reason of my presence here.

    Should be possible test the software and plugins before pay the Account upgrade? Is not a question of money but I would like to understand if the software is really different of Lince one.

    Thank you.
