    Hi
    I have had a Rock'n'Ride in storage for 20 years.
    I want to get it up and running on Windows 10.
    Can someone please provide what software I need to get it up and running please - This is all new to me.
    I note that the Rock'n'Ride has a DB9 serial connector. I presume that I need a DB9 to USB converter to get started - connected to the PC.
    Is there software that I can test the operation of the Rock'n'Ride - - ie. testing software?
    What game is suggested to test the Rock'n'Ride with originally.
    Any help is kindly appreciated.
    Thank you in advance.
    Regards
    D

    as far as i know (not to much) you would have to:
    - replace your electronic controler card (it is old and would be hard to work with it)
    - install a new controler card (arduino + moto moster) or (arduino + other kind of motor driver, there are a couple of grate options like jrk from pololu
    - on your computer install and configure simtools (the software made by the guys on this site)

    i am doing a simplistic summary but in fact is not that hard...

    best regards
