    Please be aware that you can dual language post but it is part of the Forum Rules that you also include English, doing so via Google Translate is fine: https://www.xsimulator.net/community/threads/forum-rules.9527/

    Yes you need a licensed copy of SimTools to use games other than Live For Speed. The fully functional LFS plugin is included in the demo version of SimTools for testing purposes.

    You can buy a SimTools License: https://simtools.us/license/

    An eligibility criteria applies but you can apply for a free SimTools DIY license: https://www.xsimulator.net/request-diy-key-simtools/

    To qualify for a free license:

    • You must be building a true DIY motion simulator. (Not built from a kit or purchased from a simulator seller, a model simulator does not qualify.)
    • Have a unique build thread or Showcase in DIY Simulator Projects. (The thread should show some effort, which means it should show progress to the testing phase.)
    • Have been a member of the community for at least 30 days.

    Can you please provide more information, what hardware are you using, what code is being used and can you please post pictures of all of your settings.

    Good job.

    If you are only moving one motor wy the other motor is moving?

    Your feedback is not close to your target, what type of motor are you using? How many NM or RPM?
    What power supply are you using?

    Hello Pedro Andrés Pineda, thank you
    I solved the problem, I disassembled everything and refitted again
    the problem was in the wiring I must have done something wrong
    and now I managed to regulate the two iguai with the same movement soon I will post the video of the new configuration,
    the two motors are 12V and I am using a 12V 400W PC power supply
    Ops. Sorry for the input, it's not my native language. I'm from Brazil.
