Do I really need a plugin to play every game?

    The plugins are needed for reading the acceleration and angle values from the game and forwarding them to SimTools.
    If you are implementing a game by yourself, you may be able to integrate native SimTools support instead of writing a separate plugin and patching your game afterwards.

    You not only need a plugin for every game, you really need to tune each plugin for each car in every game. Going from a road car to a le mans car for example will result in very different movement from the simulator.
