    I am now slightly concern with the DOFreality platform that I ordered now, as I want to use in conjunction with Assetto Corsa.

    Works fine with my p3, as noorbeast it's probably a user who didn't configure it correctly or something

    What is the most realistic setting in Sim Tools for Assetto Corsa on the DOFReality P3?

    That would be a motion profile that is refined for your rig and personal preference, here are the steps involved, intially doing one side at a time: https://www.xsimulator.net/community/faq/steps-to-create-a-motion-profile.228/

    There is a profile provided: https://www.xsimulator.net/communit...ject-cars-2-can-anyone-share-me-theirs.11273/

    But the axis allocations are too high and likely to induce clipping: https://www.xsimulator.net/community/faq/axis-assignment-percentage-totals.120/

    Hello all, my 2 DOF has arrived, but when I try to download the dofreality.exe file, window defender stop it and auto delete the file. How do I go round it?

    Hey ChilliPepper,

    I'm sure there is a setting within Windows Defender to allow certain things through the firewall.

    I'm at work at the moment and this current laptop doesn't use Windows Defender so I can't just look and tell you where to go but I'm 99% sure it's an easy fix

    Somebody will come on here and help. Just wish I could be of more assistance.

    Andy

    Hello Chillipepper,
    I don't know if it can fix your problem but i had problems downloading and installing the exe file also and also the plugins didn't download in the beginning. I changed my standard windows browser to Firefox and for me problem solved. Hope it can help you also.

    Thanks for the suggestions. Email dof reality, was instructed to use the manual driver installations method. So far I have manage to go as far as installing preset in the tool tab in Simtools. But when I click on the tools tab, it show me an error code and disappear very quickly. Anybody experience something like this?
    Then I try to install on my laptop and it install ok.

    Just managed to identify the problem by changing the computer name to standard English as it was on different language. by the way, is there a troubleshoot section for Simtools?

    The standard profiles provided by DOF Reality in the software installer do not have the clipping problem, nor do my profiles (See link)

    I will update and clean up the profile pack soon for the P3 and post them in a different thread for people to find it easely. As i have made many new profiles now, like x-plane, acc and dirt rally 2.0.

    This is great news I'm torn wether to get traction loss upgrade for my H2 or save for 6dof...

    How does the 6dof handle traction loss? I imagib it doesn't have the range of movement that the 3 dog has but the detail etc maybe makes up for it.

    What rig did you have before?
    Cheers

    Ben
