    My Motion Simulator:
    My 6DOF Rig is working quite well mainly with iRacing, MSFS2020 and NoLimits2.

    But I have a space problem in my rig-room with only 2.0m width but 6.0m length and already 1.4m width for my moved triple screen to walk around the rig. That's why I would like to park my rig not in center position, but in fully moved translational axis (Heave to down, Sway to right, Surge to behind).

    I can move the Axis manually with the Axis Testing function of SimTools (Game Engine). But unfortunately there is no fluent movement acting with the mouse cursor in the Axis Testing Menü. Even if I use the mouse as slow as possible and standing outside of the rig, the axis are "jumping" very hard like running against block several times per seconds or like very hard stick and slip. This is already dangerous for my screen fixation. But outside of the Axis Testing function in real games there is a fluent smooth movement of the Axis.

    Do I have to use a different mouse with higher solution or are there any short cuts to use a keyboard instead of mouse cursor or are there any filter adjustments available for the Axis testing function with a mouse?

    Every tip is welcome,
