One of the mods I am prepping is a physical interface for controlling Farming Simulator. I have got the input working, but now I want to send information back to my HID, to indicate some statuses.

I can only see two options for this right now: write an XML-file every second or so (sloooow) or use the network tools in LUA. However, for another program to understand this and send it to my HID, I would need the network protocol in detail. Is this available?

If anyone is interested in this project please contact me at thomas(at)nagels(dot)be.

Hi Thomas,

What do you mean with "my HID" exactly. What kind of application are you trying to achieve?

I am preparing to build a physical device that will connect to the computer that has Farming Simulator on it. This will be done by either USB or Network, depending on what type of interfacing is easier.

In both cases I will need the best (fastest) way to get information from FS2013; when using ethernet, I'll also need to be able to send information back to the program.

Can this be done?
