Limitations of iRacing plugin.

Limitations of iRacing plugin.

Postby wollo » Sun 8. Sep 2013, 11:13

Hi guys, I've only recently started a trial with iRacing, enjoying it so far. I was wondering though, is there any specific reason that we don't get info like fuel level and temperatures? If it's just that no one has time to update the game plugin then I'd be happy to take a look at the source code for the plugin to try and add some variables in. I would warn though. I might need some help translating the source though as I can't speak German! and I've next to no experience writing code. Or if there is some kind of technical reason beyond me then I can look for some other kind of solution.

The iRacing SDK is public.
If you find some details that are not included, but could be from the SDK, you can simple tell me where I find this parts and I unclude it.
For this, send me the found SDK (could be a newer one than I use) and the parts where to find your needs.
If a answer is correct or did help you for a solution, please use the solve button.

My virus scanner says no to this SDK ??
I continue to extract the source code and delete the infected example files.

Wow, I wasn't expecting a reply so soon, or the extra help as well. This is one of my favorite places online. :P
Could I add to that:
OilPress, Engine oil pressure, bar, float,1,1,1
OilTemp, Engine oil temperature, C, float,1,1,1
WaterTemp, Engine coolant temp, C, float,1,1,1


P.S. I can't find a button to give "thanks" on the forum, anyone have any ideas?

Uh, this SDK really sucks:
We made a decision to only output at 60 hz.


So one thing is sure, the old SDK will stay for motion simulators.
Maybe we can make a workaround for that new iRacing SDK and make another thread which will read out the other parts in slower speed.
I hope they will redo this SDK step and come back to the real time SDK soon.

Damn that is bad news, even their force feedback runs at 60hz. seems like quite a limitation. Hope your still able to cook us up some magic though. Best of luck.
