    It is a known false positive, see the explanation here by the SimTools developer @yobuddy: https://www.xsimulator.net/communit...r-as-trojan-win32-rundas-b.10708/#post-138738

    you'll get used to motion sickness like i did. Do this: play everyday but stop as soon as you feel like you're getting sick. Then play again next day. Repeat this until you don't get sick anymore. Don't force it when you're getting sick

    How is the image quality of a projector vs your big 3 tv?
    Can you please suggest some worth to have projector? Also , do they have curved panels for the projector that would kind of work same as your 3 tv?

    What are the axes that would make you feel the deceleration and the shifting of gear from high to low ? ( like from the gear 6 to gear 2 , to decelerate to make a turn)

    Thanks!

    I will try! Thanks for the advice! Do you think I should use a small amount of med for motion sickness or that would make even worse the problem of not getting used to it?

    Would you please be able to share a video on your channel of you setting up the axis more le less like dofreality explains in this step by step guide ?

    It would help a lot seeing a video of the below's words , please



    1) Open SimTools Axis Assignments
    2) select from the drop down the game plugin you want to tune to 6DOF (eg "pCARS2")
    3) reset settings to the default 6 DOF profile by clicking "Load Default"
    4) in all effects (Pitch, Roll, Extra1/Yaw, surge, sway,Heave) in % column put "-"
    5) start with one effect lets say Roll and set it to 80% for all axis
    6) save and start the game to check the direction. if reversed invert Dir for it in the check-boxes for all axis
    7) set Roll % to "-" and set 80% for the one of next DOF (Pitch,Extra1/Yaw, surge, sway,Heave)
    8) repeat #4-6 for all 6 DOF (Pitch, Roll, Extra1/Yaw, surge, sway,Heave)
    9) tune the % values to your preference and realism. We suggest to start from lower values and go up as some games maybe super sensitive.

    I did upload a unlisted Dirt Rally sintools tutorial witch explains basically the same thing ;-)

    Surge. Please watch the video above. Tuning center is essential imho for every game profile. The lower the value the more violent the movement. In case of surge i always use different numbers to make the gear shift more apparent. Its also stated in the manual.

    I would pick tv's over projectors anytime. Image quality on tv/monitor is much better. Projectors are nice if you want to go big for not much money.
    In the past i had 3x projector setup, i also use a projector in my living room for games and movies. But for simracing i think tv's are better

    Some questions for those who has get the 6DOF:
    - it worth the money difference with the 3DOF?
    - Is very noisy?

    Thanks

    I shared videos of the rig movement.

    I need help to proper setup the p6 in games

    Unfortunately I am not getting much feedback with any help, so I can't help anyone when I can't help myself to understand the proper setting and proper use of the p6.

    I am looking myself from help from p6 owners that updated from p3.
