[NEW] MotionMax 5 Manager (BETA 5DOF Simulator)

MotionMax 5 Manager 5DOF
Simulator Software Management
By Zappadoc ©2019 All Rights Reserved.
(MMX5 BETA Launched – 2019-03-20)

 

 

MotionMax 5 Manager,a more conventional 5DOF simulator management than the MMX 6DOF with 3 distinctive layers, the CORE layer, the SURGE layer and the Traction Loss (TL) layer.

MMX5 takes the benefit of  the V.P.I. system (Vehicle Physics Interpreter) and yaw dynamics (TL) motion code of MotionMax 6. An ultra accuracy and efficiency motion result in all car categories (F1 and other open wheel categories/Endurance/Proto/GT/Rally/Kart) with more than 60 games/simulations supported.

The CORE layer is a 3DOF system with 4 actuators including Pitch, Roll and Heave management.

The optional SURGE layer on top of the CORE give you huge acceleration and braking by sliding backward/forward on top of the CORE platform using one or two actuator.

The TL Layer is a solid base under the CORE layer with a pivot on the front and an arched rail allowing the whole structure to be moved by an actuator.

The MotionMax 5 Manager is currently in beta, contact us if you’re a manufacturer and want us to add the support of your motion platform 3/4/5DOF to MotionMax 5 Manager.

Cheers,
z

DiRT Rally 2.0 build v1 How To Improve FFB With Your OSW Direct Drive

 

NOTICE: The first time I give the trick to the sim racing community on how to use the Simucube direct drive was with DiRT 4 June 09, 2017 and now with DIRT Rally 2.0.

Do not be fooled by the guys around who don’t know what they are talking about and who don’t give you the correct information. Read the original and reliable information on EKSIMRacing, see the link below.

 

 

Hi,

Read carefully my tutorial to be able to use your OSW Simucube (native firmware or MMOS version) with DiRT Rally 2.0 build v1

REMINDER: Choose the corresponding TAB MMOS or Simucube and apply the recommendation scrupulously or the improvement below will not working.

Click to read how to use the Simucube with DiRT 4 and DiRT Rally 2.0

 

Okay, now everything is correctly installed and waiting for the FFB patch from Codemasters here is how to improve greatly and very easily the feeling of the road surface which is seriously lacking in the current version.

First you have to load the settings for DIRT Rally 1.0 on the Simucube FW or the MMOS and change the MAX FORCE to 100% FFB

then apply the settings below

ATTENTION: Tyre Slip and Engine are grayed BUT PERFECTLY USABLE with the sliders

 

Now go on track and turn the wheel to test the force and go back to the game settings to adjust the “Self Aligning Torque” parameter, if your MMOS or Simucube FW is correctly setup at 100% MAX Force you should get a good FFB with a value between 18 and 25. Collision value should be around 20.

This is simple you ask DR2 to send the max FFB values to your DD so you pass the full control to your MMOS / Simucube FW filter settings (which must be good obviously). Only the “Self Aligning Torque” of the game parameters is retained to control (decrease) the value to obtain the proper balance of FFB force.

That’s It!

Cheers,
z
