    Removed the offensive picture, but still find the decision to disable the software childish and funny.

    Well, thats a little over the top and probably politicaly incorrect, but I can see the analogy. We are definitely observing the behavior of an infant and dictator.

    Hi everyone:

    I have been a member for a while but have not had too much time to contribute here.

    I am sorry to read about the fighting and I don't understand clearly what the issues are.

    I hope SirNoname reconsiders and am also pleased to see others are offering a software solution.

    I am an electronics engineer and myself and my software partner have been looking at X-Sim and doing a lot of reading and testing for some time now.

    We want to offer our expertise to further our sim hobbies and make it easier for all of us to have fun with this...

    We will soon offer a full hardware platform, which you can program based on the Arduino system.

    It will be a single board that contains:

    1) An arduino compatible microprocessor section.
    2) 3 high power DC motor controllers.
    3) LCD display
    4) Encoder inputs, etc.
    5) As well as other hardware... :)

    We will sell the complete hardware platform, fully assembled and tested at a low cost (it is all surface mount technology).

    Our new company website is not complete, but you can see the start: http://www.elec-fun.com.

    Development of this hardware has not been cheap, and we will soon take orders (and have a full description with pictures) on the http://www.kickstarter.com/ page. Note, not there yet...soon!

    The Kickstarter system allows you to order safely and assures us that we can recover our modest investment for hardware development, software development and prototypes.

    We will also provide, at no cost, the software drivers for it to work with X-Sim, or another software platform if someone designs it...

    So, what I am saying is...we will be your COMPLETE hardware solution to easily drive up to 3 large DC motors, as well as provide the software drivers for it...

    Our new system, takes the best ideas we have seen here and, hopefully, integrates all of them into a really great hardware platform that should make talking to motors very fast and easy!!!

    Now, someone needs to tell us WHICH software to make it work with...X-Sim, or??

    I hope all the fighting can stop and all of us can get back to our hobby!!

    -Gary

    I attempted to have a business based around X-Sim and provide DIY parts to the community. I invested alot of time and effort in the products and this community over the years.

    The future of X-Sim was always in question and to be brutally honest I felt like the developer may be a bit unstable, as the project was always in the process of being cancelled, then revived, as you can see. It nearly gave me ulcers because at that time, my business relied on X-Sim existing.

    I finally had to divorce myself from the insanity and make my own software. My suggestion to you is to do the same....control your own destiny, do not leave the future of your investment in unstable hands.

    Yes, I assume you mean the politicaly incorrect picture. I reported this post. I think it will be deleted. I do not have moderator rights here.

    I will wait to see if this really happens. I've heard it too many times before.

    If it does I think I can put something together for the Pololu users in short time.

    That´s for me the point i must decide to close that forum here completely for any new posts. Soory guys, but i am the responsible and administrative site owner here. I dont want to be called for account for any statements that are made.

    When someone wants to delete a specific post write at admin@x-simulator.de.
