    Hi everyone
    The first thing is to thank the xsimulator team for the great work. this is my Progress of this 2dof I accept suggestions and ideas I am starting with electronics, I have used an Arduino R3 one, two ibt2, two 10k potentiometers, two 24v truck engines and a 12V 15Ah power supply that is currently provisional For tests
    The engines are truck the first thing I did is isolate the mass of the chassis and detect the high-speed cable

    Already prepared the engines, I made a drill on the opposite side of the axes and passed a threaded male to place a bolt to rotate the potentiometers, take out a screw from the chassis and fix a plate to hold the potentiometers, this fixation is provisional I want to improve

    to fix the plates on the motor shafts I will use a threaded bolt and a stud, the articulables take them out of a gearbox, they have a thread pitch of 10 mm

    then I put the electronics up the program on the arduino MODE2 connect the ibt2 and mount everything provisional on a table to be able to do the tests
    the engines work perfectly with the SMC3Utils v1.01 program
    I need to have the simtool license to try in a racing game

    I am using a 12V 15Ah power supply that seems to work well and another 5v 3500mha power supply

    You will find the FAQs useful for common questions: https://www.xsimulator.net/community/faq/

    But the LFS plugin in the demo version of SimTools is fully functional, specifically for testing purposes, just make sure you run it before patching, as that generates some required files: https://www.xsimulator.net/communit...run-in-first-person-mode-before-patching.345/

    Yes there is an eligibility criteria for a free DIY SimTools license, and part of that is being a member for at least a month, that and other criteria, plus other useful information, is here: https://www.xsimulator.net/community/faq/request-a-free-diy-simtools-2-0-license.262/

    Consoles are only supported where the UDP plugin has been created for them, here is the background information: https://www.xsimulator.net/community/faq/consoles.27/category
