Motion Driver for Assetto Corsa racing sim
A beta version is available
for the racing sim Assetto Corsa. The download is on the
Assetto Corsa is presently
available as an early access version (v0.22.9 at the time of
writing), so the motion driver software will probably be updated in
time as the full release becomes available.
(Also now checked with V1.0.5b, NB
toggle full screen mode now Alt+Enter for V1)
Access to the racing sim telemetry
data is via the sim's shared memory areas - there are no plugins
IMPORTANT: this is BETA
software and may contain bugs - please use with care!
Installation of the motion driver
is mainly the same as the other versions - see
The software operation is mainly
as described in Section 3 Operation.
Some of the flight sim related
features such as heave movement recording due to turbulence etc are
not active in the Assetto Corsa motion driver for obvious reasons.
The default .bff config files in
the Assetto Corsa motion driver zip file contain cue settings better
suited to the faster dynamics of the racing car sim. You may wish to
experiment with them. Generally because the on-ground vehicle accelerations
are held for shorter durations before changing again rapidly there
is less need for washouts in the cue, so the sample configs don't
use acceleration washouts (other than where they are needed for basic cue
development - ie in the heave and yaw cues). The acceleration scaling to fit the cue limits may
also need to be adjusted to suit different vehicles.
NOTE: The telemetry data
shared memory areas don't become fully available until a Drive
session is started from the Assetto Corsa Launcher. So it is best to
start your Drive session first and then start the motion driver.
To switch Assetto Corsa in and out
of Full Screen mode use the F11 button (now Alt+Enter in V1+).
The refresh rate of the motion
driver output can be increased up to the data refresh rate of the
Assetto Corsa telemetry data output using .bff configuration file
If you find any bugs or strange
behaviours in the beta version then please let me know.
