    Good day everyone

    I'm just in alittle bit of a tight space now, and I request some help from the community. I am currently building a 2dof racing rig made from junk, but I'm stuck with regards to the motor and potentiometer. Is there a way to use the motors as signals without the pots?.

    I'm fairly new, I also dnt own any testing software. So I cannot test it at all.

    OK so now everything is secure, when using Sim tools everything works, the roll, pitch, etc moves with the motor and is working fine, but when I open lfs(after 10 "patches"), it's still dnt work, when I drive nothing happens, I can hear the power surging through the 2dof but no movements during driving in LFS.

    It is important that LFS was run before patching for motion, as that generates some required files: https://www.xsimulator.net/communit...run-in-first-person-mode-before-patching.365/

    Please post pictures of ALL of your settings, including the Tuning Center while LFS is running.
