    Hi! Guys,

    I was wondering if it is possible to have Fanaleds working together with SimTools on CM games like F1 2013 and Dirt 3.

    Problems I found:
    1. F1 2013, if I disable the fanatec native led support, Simtools does not work at all.
    Additionally, they use extradata = 3. which is not compatble with Simtools.

    2. Dirt 3, same issue for extradata and if I go inside Fanaleds and change outsim port to match Simtools port, it stops working, no move!? Does it accept only one connection?

    Does anyone have a work around for this?

    Here is how Fanaleds is set up for these games (port is not a problem, I just change it to match SimTools):
    Codemasters (DiRT, F1)
    • Open "hardware_settings_config.xml" which is located in your savegame folder of the game. For instance: C:\Users\your username\Documents\My Games\DiRT3\hardwaresettings
    • Open this file and look for a line that begins with:
    • <motion enabled
    • Replace this line with:
    • <motion enabled="true" ip="127.0.0.1" port="30500" delay="1" extradata="3" />
    • Add this line to cancel interference from native support:
    • <led_display nativeSupport="false" fanatecNativeSupport="false" />
