    Hi,

    I am using the PS4 with my rig and using the ProjectCars2 (PC2) plugin to get the telemetry data out of the PS4.
    Makes a lot of fun and thanks for everybody who supported here in this forum (where I learned a lot).
    Anyway, one smaller problem occurs:

    When driving everything is great. But when I select a new car or a new track in PC2 the rig is shaking/moving in more or less regular intervals. Very strange, as those signals coming from Simtools and hence must come from the PS4 and UDP broadcast.
    See a video here:



    I haven`t sniffed those packets yet, but do you have the same problem ?
    Any idea why this is happening ?

    cheers,
    Arazok

    Yes, I have the same. The game sends some telemtry frames from time to time.
    I could filter motion based on the status as seen in gamedash (RACING/SESSION/....)

    My T1000RS arrived today so I'll be a bit busy the coming days but I'll take a look at filtering telemetry

    That would be great, if you can filter it. :)
