Big Update Today of VDASH-EMU (v1.1-32f 2017-10-19)

Big update today of VDASH-EMU (v1.1-32f 2017-10-19)

This version follows the availability of the new EKSIMRacing VToR (Virtual To real) USB Controller which let you use your virtual buttonbox of VDASH-EMU as A REAL ButtonBox with more than 60 games and simulations.

EKSIMRacing Virtual To Real (VToR) in action with RaceRoom Racing Experience (R3E) Assign the controls as a real button-box! ;)

The VDASH-EMU v1.1-32f enhances all features related to button-box controls and gives you endless possibilities of creation. Some very useful new objects have been added to give you a maximum control of your custom templates.

Changelog 201-10-19:

– added object Ctrl Image Push Button, contains 2 images UP and DOWN to create a push button, any png or jpeg image can be used to create the button with infinite custom designs
– added object Image Flag, is a Flag object visible or not visible triggered by the state of a Marshal or External Led or an EVAL Math expression, very useful for example to illuminate your controls or to warn the driver when a flag is set with a big frontmost image (green, yellow, blue, red, black, checkerboard, start of race, …)

– All DATA (telemetry) objects have now 2 options for the EVAL field (which contains a math or logical expression)
EVAL Value which computes and displays dynamically the telemetry value
EVAL Visibility which computes the EVAL expression and displays the data only if the result is > 0

Very useful when for example you want to display a telemetry data like the Brake Biais when its value is updated (a common behavior of F1 Steering wheel display)

NEW EVAL functions available:
buttonState(n) result 0 or 1 – (n is the index of the button from 1 to 32)

ledState(n) result 0 or 1 (n is the index of the LED; Marshal Led from 1 to 6; External Led from 7 to 13)

isChanged() result 1 when the DATA (telemetry) has been changed

example:
if you want to show an image when button 5 is pressed, put in EVAL Field of an Image Flag object:
buttonState(5)


if you want to show the brake biais when its value is updated, Tick the EVAL Visibility checkbox and put in EVAL Field of an DATA Brake BIAIS object:
isChanged()

NEW Menus


Hide Selection to hide the selected object
Show All to show all objects previously hidden
v1.1-32f2
– added menus:
Bring To Front (current selected object)
Send To Back (current selected object)
Show/Hide Status Bar to Objects menu
v1.1-32f3
– new Safe PushButton object added (check the screenshot below)

– a bunch of minors bugs have been fixed as well

NEW BUTTONBOX Textures Pack available today as well!

to go with the new version of VDASH-EMU v32f a new pack of textures has been created with a lot of buttons ready to use. A cool textures pack (free of charge) for creating your custom button-box easily.

Go to the DOWNLOAD Textures Pack forum to  download the new Buttonbox Pack

 

The update is available today for Android, Windows and Linux and 100% free for all registered users.

Go to website to download using the corresponding EMU Button:

GREEN =For Android Tablet/Phone;
PURPLE=For SIM Display SIM Race LCD Device;
BLUE= For Windows PC/Laptop/Tablet;
ORANGE=For Embedded Linux devices

and install it over the current installation.

Hi,

Assetto Corsa Console Bridge for SLIMax Manager Pro is out!

See the dedicated Open Beta forum for more info:
http://www.eksimracing.com/forum/index.php?board=267.0

In short, you can use any USB Display devices or EMU like the VDASH-EMU supported by SLIMax Manager Pro with your PS4 or XB1 Console… but wait! the current UDP API of Assetto Corsa is really poor so don’t expect to have the same information as on PC version. lap, speed, rpm, gear, basic  current/last/best lap time and that’s it!

As usual Check For Update to get the latest plugins and read the installation topic to download the bridge.
Cheers,
z
