2020.04.06: version 2.99:

Dropped features

  • HS-201 is no longer supported.

New features

  • DiRT Rally/ DiRT Rally 2.0: By default the motion is generated only when current lap time increases. If you want to have a motion in e.g. Free Mode, then this function has to be disabled. Go to Profile Editor and then Input Plugin configuration to set desired option.
  • General: Redesigned alternative Platform Diagnostic startup window.
  • Joystick Hotkeys: Introduced system wide joystick hotkeys that can be used to e.g. temporary pause or park the motion platform. Buttons mapping can be set in Software Configuration.
  • Profile tunes sharing: Introduced simple quick-tunes sharing mechanism that helps to exchange custom profiles in motion platform community.

New games

  • Automobilista 2: Introduced profile for HS-203 and HS-210.
  • F1 2019: Motion profile tunning that solves inconsistencies in telemetry data.
  • GRID 2019: Introduced profile for HS-203 and HS-210.

  • VR HeadWay: When the UEFI Secure Boot is enabled, VR motion compensation might not work.

2020.01.28: version 2.97:

  • VR HeadWay: Fixed compatibility issues with Dirt Rally 2.0 and iRacing
  • VR HeadWay: Fixed compatibility issues with Prepar3D v4

Known issues

  • Aerofly FS2: Since R22 update, the 'accelerations' data rate is 1 Hz and 'bank/pitch' data rate is 10Hz. In order to work with that slow telemetry rates, two profiles have been introduced. None of them is perfect, because the issue is inside the game engine.
    1. Aerofly FS2 - ACC: It uses interpolated accelerations to drive the motion platform at the cost of 1s latency.
    2. Aerofly FS2 - NO ACC: It uses only bank and pitch to drive the motion platform at the cost of 100ms latency.
  • VR HeadWay: When the UEFI Secure Boot is enabled, VR motion compensation might not work.
