    I have finished the set up using the Thanos controller. I have set up simtools and loaded profiles for several different games. These games have also been patched. All of the games previously worked with a next level v3 motion rig so I think the in game settings are right for motion.

    I get no motion from any of the games. In simtools, I am able to test all dofs like sway, roll, pitch etc.
    When I start each game, the rig acknowledges that the games have started by moving to the mid position but none give motion while driving.

    I uninstalled simtools and reinstalled with no change.
    Any ideas?

    Maybe set the PC language locale to US... ?

    If you get motion with the manual sliders, then something is wrong with the connection between the games and simtools. Uninstal and disable all antivirus software, even windows defender. Sometimes they block connections.

    It was the tuning center. I ran it so I thought yesterday. I turned it on and played the game but I guess I didnt turn it on correctly. I guess i didn't (and still kinda don't) understand it. It worked when I clicked capture and reset. I will keep reading and playing with it . Thanks for the help!

    See the motion profile tuning tips here: https://www.xsimulator.net/community/faq/steps-to-create-a-motion-profile.228/

    It covers capturing a base Tuning Center values and tweaking from there.
