    My Motion Simulator:
    6DOF
    For fun I wanted to see if I could interpret data from a Mario Kart game for my 6DOF motion simulator, turns out I could.

    I used a Super Mario Kart rom for SNES and modified the open source emulator BizHawk to output on UDP interpreted "telemetry" data for specifically this game. I don't have any plans on making it any better, but I was on furlough and thought it would be an interesting if I could figure it out.

    I located on the interwebs the ram mappings,. it contained values for

    How Far South
    How Far East
    Kart Facing Angle
    Over All Speed
    Camera Facing Angle
    Jump Height

    This data was enough to get a rudimentary model created to send to Simtools,

    Thought I would share the Idea,
