Yes, you can. After connecting the joystick to PC via USB, ForceSeatPM will create a profile for it. Just activate the profile, map axes and you can control the motion platform with your joystick. All DirectInput compatible joystick are supported, but make sure that joystick uses quality potentiometers as sensor positions.
When more than one motion platform is connected to the same LAN, the latency increases dramatically from 5ms to 1500ms. What causes this issue?
Double check if all motion platforms connected to the same LAN have different MAC. You can do it using mosyct.exe command line tool. It is recommend to verify motion platforms network configuration via USB connection.
We suggest to uninstall VR HeadWay system installation, restart your computer and test the game once again to verify if this is caused by our software. VR HeadWay system integration can be uninstalled from Help and Support, Repair section.
