    I tried to ask this question in my project forum, I thought I'd try it here. I have installed simtools: The manager, engine, and updater are all loaded on my computer but, when I click on any one of them, it just tells me that it is running. I am not able to get the control screen that is referenced in the guide. I am sure that it is something simple that I am missing but, if I can't get that to come up I can't do anything. Please help. Please pm me or reply on how to fix what I am sure is a simple error.

    It will be days for sure. However, it may be more than 7 or 30 of them.

    The answers you seek are on the first 2 posts of this thread:

    Game Engine –Two Axis Assignments pages for up to 12 simultaneous axis calculations: https://www.xsimulator.net/community/threads/simtools-2-0-question-and-answer.8175/

    DIY license cost - There are fees associated with the 3 license versions, but don't panic as in the case of the DIY license we intend to have a Discount Code that Xsimulator.net DIY simulator builders are eligible for, which effectively makes it free for all those who are actually building a DIY simulator (not from a kit or a commercial product). Having to get a license key provides far more control over unauthorized misuse of SimTools: https://www.xsimulator.net/community/threads/simtools-2-0-question-and-answer.8175/#post-99841

    Yes, SimTools 2.0 still supports up to 6 interfaces.

    There will be a DIY version of SimTools 2.0 that is free for all DIY home built simulators.
    (DIY Simulators are not built from a kit or purchased from a simulator seller.)
    (The DIY version of SimTools 2.0 is not for use with anything commercial. Including a purchased simulator)

    As long as the DIY version does not get misused, we will make receiving a DIY key free and simple.
    But should it get abused, we will only hand out DIY keys to posted DIY sim threads.

    If I could make it go faster I would.
    No one wants it posted worse than I do.
    It's just taken longer to get all the legal side done than I would have thought.
    But I do have a new version in my inbox as we speak, so It should not be to long now.
