SimuCUBE firmware 0.11 series bug reports


#41

Auto setup feature ? Care to explain a little more ? Im seeing some funny stuff from My DOR as well. Ive asked Ilja if something changed in CM, but i dont think so.

Also it seems to hang on the Bump Stop DOR when exiting the game…hrmm strange stuff going on.


#42

Interesting. By the auto setup feature, I meant the automatic steering lock setup (hardware lock or something).

Strange things going on it seems, I will take this on the list of things to test, but it is unlikely that we will have time to invest on this in the near term.


#43

Thanks Mika,

Ya with what i seen, there’s something buggy going on, You know Ilja is Super quick to fix stuff, so make sure to have a chat with him in case its a combined issue with CM and the New Firmware.

Also might be worth to look into the Gyro too, i got some nasty wobbles the other day when letting go of the wheel and dont recall that being there on previous firmware versions.


#44

Gyro effect is in the AC side, not in SimuCUBE code, so… hmm, I might have time to look at these things next by the end of next week. There is SimExpo this week, and also other stuff planned for next week already…

Hey Mika,

I had your UI Glitch out hard last night and even with Un checking the Bump stop the saving the Profile to 900 Degrees Multiple times, it was Showing like 360 deg on the Wheel Graphic, rebooted the UI a few times and eventually with Turning the Bump stop BACK on and saving , the DOR popped back to 900. Something funny is going on that i can pin point. sorry.

IMO its less likely its CM and more on your Side., as all Ilja did was implement the code you guys have on the Github for the Bumpstop.

Hi Mika,

Just a quick question around the cpu usage that was mentioned on the previous update. Did you change the polling rate for V11? Is there a possibility of implementing a way to turn off the positional update for the UI so it doesn’t eat quite as much CPU?

I am finding that currently on my 4 core 6600k OC to 4.4ghz that I am losing between 20-25% CPU just to the Simucube process alone. It isn’t too much of an issue for AC but in RF2 you need to fairly frequently fiddle with the wheel range or profile setting so just thought I would ask. Ultimately no problem closing it when racing but it wasn’t until I started troubleshooting all the dropped frames I was getting in VR recently that I realised that it was chewing that much when open!

Tim


#47

Yes, I released 0.11b into the same github release, which restores the polling rate to the level it was before.

@Mika Just so happens as soon as I went to drive a practice my wheel thumped a few times and lost proper rotation.

Hope this helps either find the bug or find out what I need to fix


#49

Sounds very, very much like a loose servo shaft coupler.


#50

Erm…what does that mean? Excuse my ignorance.


#51

Do you mean the coupler that attaches the wheel to the servo? I’ll give it a tighten and see what happens.


#52

Yes, that part. You can mark the servo shaft and the part that attaches to it with a pen so you can see if it has rotated.


#53

OK. I tightened the coupler but made no difference. Here’s a video to let you see what the wheel in-game is doing.

Hopefully determine if it’s the wheel for the sim or my PC.

BTW I’m smoothly rotating the wheel left to right. The jittery movement is not me but I do get thumps from the FFB but not every time.


#54

You mean that it happened right at the beginning when you first turned right? It really does look like the coupler is slipping OR something really strange is happening.

Which car in rFactor 2 is that?


#55

It’s at the end of each wheel rotation you can see the in-game wheel flicking backwards 5-10 degrees. I honestly don’t think I can tighten the coupler any more. I had a quick go on Live For Speed and this didn’t happen.


#56

The car is S397s Corvette GT3 at Road Atlanta


#57

I just tested this, and did not experience the same behavior. Please, mark the shaft and the coupler/adapter to be extra sure that the problem is not there.


#58

Right. Marked the shaft and coupler. Tested and nothing has moved. Still aligned. Could it be a faulty encoder or maybe EMI issue. Or even an issue with my PC’s USB?


#59

The tracking should still be consistant. Maybe, just maybe, the encoder itself is slipping or something.

Can you try if you can repeat the issue when you have e-stop pressed?


#60

Do you mean to engage the E stop mid drive then disengage and see if problem persists?
