I will reach out to him and ask him if he would be interested in making them. At first after testing of course he could do it as a pre order type of thing. So he’s aware of thr demand. I think alot of us rather just use our he pedals rather than purchase 1500 dollar d
Has there being any progress on this topic, as I and many others would be keen to get a group buy on this D-SUB connector / Amp (LCA)
As far I know there are only 2 pedals boxes that connect directly to the Accessory port on Simucube 2 from the factory:
Simtag Hydraulic 3-Pedal System
Racewerk S1 PRO Mk2
and they are also the most expensive and best SIM pedals on the market right now.
I also found that Racewerks pedals come with a USB - DSUB convertor. However, this converts the other way (DSUB to USB)
However, someone with more knowledge than me could reverse that and you could than literally connect any pedal box to SIMUCUB 2
The link below for the convertor
There are 3 benefits that I can see by connecting directly to SC2
1 16 Bit resolution as opposed to 12 bit (finer details )
2 linking into SC2 software and controlling everything from one place
3 fewer USB ports used and cleaner Rig builds
I forgot to post the review on the Racewerks pedals Will from boosted media explains how the SC2 accessory port is used and how the software integration works.
and runs through a lot of the benefits explained above.
He also compares the Heuskenveld Ultimates to the Racewerk hydraulic pedals.
Very good review Will Knows his stuff and he is an Aussie
Such thing would need a not so small software project. Easier would be to make a generic load cell amplifier for the load cells of third-party pedals such as Heusinkveld, but even then the specs on the load cells vary a lot between Heusinkveld Pro/Ultimate and Sprint, not to mention any other pedal brands.
One more advantage could be that some older games only support 2 controllers maximum (I found that out for GP3 and GP4). Having pedals, an SC2 and a USB wheel doesn’t work
I have hopes that connecting the pedals to the SC2 base the whole thing will be recognized as 1 controller?
BJ Steel GT pedals (2 hall sensors + 200kg loadcell) directly to SC2 accesory Port is working as It should.
LC sensor has 4 wires so LeoBodnar LC Amp is needed.
Hall sensors without problems.
Full Simucube 2 Ecosystem:
I Saw some Heusinkveld Sprint photos on its webstore and looks like the LC sensor is a 4 wires one like the BJ Steel ones, so you need to follow those cables and look at where It connects on the integrated PCB. Try to disconnect or desolder to not damage/devaluate your pedals. Or cut at a reasonable lenght:
