SimuCUBE Open Source Firmware Development Update Thread 2

firmware

#302

That’s all fair.

I’m playing devils advocate a little here, but I understand the safety considerations.
When they interfere with the basic functions of the wheel (drifitng for example in the rally cars) and break the immersion, then that’s no good.

I think we can have safety without it breaking things.


#303

Yeah, I was thinking of any use cases where the 45 degrees would cause issues. Maybe 90 degrees would be better. Also smooth ramp-up of FFB over several seconds when user releases e-stop is something we are considering.


#304

This week, we have been analyzing and fixing some important performance issues with the firmware, and have gotten closer to release.


#305

I did not promise, but I still won’t tell.

I think it is time for Granite Devices to tell if they are posting pics.


#309

Mark The Date: 3rd April 2019.

I just test drove DW12 at Sebring. And it was good.


#316

Mika, you are becoming quite good at the teasing game these days. :grin:


#317

Lots of good stuff coming. You guys have been hard at work.


#318

Back to the firmware discussion. When we’ll see new firmware to coming out?


#319

One might guess that some new developments have taken a priority. However, on the firmware side, the benefit is added smoothness of effects, and well tested Simucube Wireless Wheel support, plus a few bug fixes.

I’m testing the latest build myself at home with Simucube firmware, but not quite there yet - we need one added API feature implemented to IONI before we can release.


#320

Ok. Thanks for info!


#321

Great news, thanx Mika!


#322

Im so glad I went with the osw. You can definitely see there are a bunch of guys that care behind it.
