    Hi,
    I am using my 2DOF rig with my PS4, hence I stig to UDP plugins.
    For me its not a problem of writing my own plugin, but rather, where to get the motion values from, if the game does not provide them via UDP broadcast.
    So my idea is to get the raw data out of the peripheral like steering wheel, throttle and brakes.
    Does anyyone have thought about that ?

    First idea:
    Values from brakes, steering wheel etc are transported to PS4 via USB. Put a raspberry in between (as man in the middle), copy and enrich/normalize those data and send it to simtools plugin.

    What do you think?

    cheers,
    Dirk
