    hi everyone
    i am building a 2 dof rig as a project in my college, i want to get the game telemetry so i can use it in my controller (Arduino)
    i was able to write a python code that receives the in game data telemetry sent by the game via udp
    here is a copy of the code:
    import socket
    import time
    UDP_IP = "127.0.0.1"
    UDP_PORT = 63394
    sock = socket.socket(socket.AF_INET, # Internet
    socket.SOCK_DGRAM) # UDP
    sock.bind((UDP_IP, UDP_PORT))
    while True:
    data, addr = sock.recvfrom(1024) # buffer size is 1024 bytes
    print ("received message:", data)
    time.sleep(2)
    it worked but my problem is that I dont understand the data received i am using live for speed (LFS)
    here is a copy of the data received

    b'(\x00\x00\x00\xe4\xf1\xa59~a/\xb7\xd6\xde\xc8\xb5\xcdF)\xbd\x05@\x9e\xbd\x96\x10\xf39\x10\xc85\xb9J\x02\xca\xba\x11\xec\x1c\xc1?N\xe7\xb6@T\x80\xb8\x13\xe8\xc8\xbe\xd3\xc8\xc3\xff^go\x00\xb0\xb1\x07\x00'

    Any idea how to convert these data? or how to understand them or any guides
    and if there is another way that i can extract data and convert it other than this please tell me i am quiet new to this
    thanks in advance :D
