    Good evening. I recently uninstalled and then reinstalled simtools as my actuators were acting funny. I have updated to the latest version, 2.5.1. I have everything set up per the instructions that were provided by Prosimu and have followed then tot a "t" in setting up both the game manager as well as game engine. When I test the output everything works as it should. It powers on and does the proper test cycles and everything seems fine.
    When I open a game, project cars 2 for example, it shows that the game manager is connected and all is green. When I actually start racing i get no input from the actuators. I hope that it is just simple "communication" step that i am missing but any help would be much appreciated.

    Before getting into game configuration just to confirm are you saying SimTools is working as expected in SimTools Output Testing?

    Have you contacted Prosimu for support?

    That is correct it is working as it should in the output testing.
    It is working as expected in the output testing. I discovered the problem too late in the day to contact Prosimu. If there is no answer here tonight I will try them tomorrow.

    Cheers

    If it is working in Output Testing then try unpatching AC, temporarily disable your firewall and antivirus then repatch AC, to see if either are interfering with the plugin installation.

    You also need to refine the motion profile, in particular make sure you capture the Min/Max values in the Tuning Center: https://www.xsimulator.net/community/faq/steps-to-create-a-motion-profile.228/
