    @yobuddy what the heck! First day on (my) holidays and finally I could find a spare time to ride on my rig, just testing the new 2.4 release, and what can I say - I am speechless! Motion has never been more accurate. 2.4. is a huge progress over all former versions. It is like an upgraded simulation platform to the next level. Thank you for your endless effort making SimTools better and better.

    My rig is currently not in use because of upgrades. Would you mind describe how or what feels better? I'm just so curious and my rig won't be complete again for a few weeks.

    Wow!
    So you got update`s and UPDATE`S this is one of the second kind
    Motion is smoother and indeed more accurate.
    I have been driving over couple of honderd laps now with same car and track.

    Things i noticed was it feels like there are more "steps" in forces.
    There is a tricky turn and I spinned out nearly already over 100 time`s there.

    Now I had the same, but i shocked but was able to keep it.
    The interesting part of it , this felt exactly the same when i had it with outdoor karting.
    And that was one thing i thought I never was able to reach , but here you go thanks to you!

    Really this whole motion platform is more amazing then i initially thought off.
    Thanks again for your hard work!

    Hello,

    After this installation, I experienced many good changes, this is an awesome update, thanks for that,
    But I do not understand one thing,
    During dirt rally 2 game - after a pause and restart - simtools stops 2 axes from 5, and the game engine's icon blinking blue.
    I must restart simtools game engine all the time after this situation,

    what could be the problem with this?
    please help me, what does blue blinking of icon means?

    Can you please post a picture of the icon that blinks blue, as I am not sure if it is game manager or something else.

    This happens when you try to exit GameEngine and the sim still needs to center.
    It will blink blue till the centering is done and then exit.
    Take care!
