    Hi!

    I've just downloaded the Forza plugin, but can't use it with SimTools. It doesn't appear in my plugins installed list of Game Engine. The plugin was succesfully installed via the Plugin Update. What could be missing?

    Thanks
    Luciano

    You must be using a registered version of SimTools to use any plugin other than Live For Speed, which is provided for testing purposes.

    Thanks for your reply, but I've already have a registered version of SimTools.

    I made a new installation and now I the plugin appear correctly. But I cant't get any read from the game in the tunning center tool.

    I want to know if any extra app is needed when using plugins.

    Thanks
    Luciano

    No an extra app is not needed, but different plugins can have additional configuration or in-game setting requirements, which are covered in plugin download pages.

    I would suggest you grab a copy of the SimTools manual and keep it handy: https://www.xsimulator.net/community/faq/rtfm-start-with-the-official-simtools-documentation.117/
