I had my dash working with Grid AS through Fanaleds. But the latest update changed all settings to default again, lol.
Fanaleds works with most shifting lights and dashboards, not just Fanatec.

I know Tixier will make shifting lights working in The Crew. Native support for the CSW.

But it would be great if Siminstuments makes it natively supported as well. :party:

There are a number of community-created apps to choose from. They'll often connect over WiFi to a PC app/site that gets the data from the game and then rebroadcasts it. Check the forums.

I think i tried one once. From a German Guy. But it supported a very limited amount of games. Sims mostly. It also is a hassle to setup over Wifi, depending on how your wifi is routed. But it looks very nice once it works. ;)

As Ryzza posted about android dashboard apps, i started a search to see what goods there have been developed recently.
Then i did come along this one. Real gauges. There have been ways to implement real dials through converter boards and software. But all these involve some heave modifying and knowledge of car electronics. The option shown below, is a plug 'n play package. Not cheap at 250+ pounds, but a nice option.

Those are some nice bits of kit but way to pricy for something I would consider. :eeek:

Is there a pCars app? Or do you just use an existing dashboard program?
