Along of the obvious UI refresh, some significant “quality of life” changes has been added of this new version :

    • Reworked home page, instead of focusing on a long list of games you might not use, space is given to the features you are using, devices, bass shakers, motors …
    • Widescreen friendly : The center content is not stretched anymore on an ultra wide screen
    • Rework on the devices UI, the UI has been reorganized to give more room to the important features
    • Wheels and button boxes with editable buttons colors now have up to 4 switchable color presets
    • Wheels and button boxes with editable buttons colors now use the devices preview when it’s possible (led editor, color presets preview)
    • Wheels and button boxes now offer a single led brightness slider.
    • New day and night mode available globally allowing you to quickly switch brightness presets and keep your eyes safe when room light goes down.
    • Profile system (bass shakers, leds …) has been reworked to now allow per car profile storage and switching.
    • Quick profile switching combo boxes everywhere it applies
    • Profiles in profile manager are now sorted based on the current game (current game first, generic profiles next, then all the other games)
    • Automatic device detection : during device addition SimHub will suggest you the detected devices.
    • Leds profiles has been reworked to be much more compact when stored in settings files (warning the profiles loaded/exported by this new version are not compliant with older SimHub versions)
    • Control mapper plugin : new arduino firmware allowing to show 3 controllers and raise the possible remapped inputs to 384.
  • 9.2.1 Hotfix : 
    • Fix : Buttons Color editor freeze

I gave a big focus on dashboard refresh rate tuning in this release allowing to tune whole dashboard sections much more conveniently.
Tuning the refresh rate will both benefit about performances and readability. For instance a leaderboard refreshing every 16ms degrades readability … and if content is complex … drills performances down. to workaround that “refresh interval” takes now a much more important place in design :

  • Obscure “RenderingSkip” setting is replaced with a more explicit “Update interval” clearly expressed in milliseconds.
  • Layers can now be tuned (and will so affect all the childs at once).
  • The refresh interval is directly shown in the component tree.

9.1.0 – 9.1.1 – 04/10/2023

  • Added a few additional raw telemetry channels for beamng (light_LowHighBeam, light_LowBeam, light_Fog)
  • Improved UDP conflict detection, simhub will continue checking unless the game is connected, in case of conflict detected the information will be kept sticky to help with conflicts occuring only when the game is launched.
  • Fix : Added a workaround for some plugins reinstantiating the ncalc/js engine in a loop, coupled with the latest performance optimisations this was causing a significant memory pressure leading to out of memory errors.

9.0.0 – 9.0.1 – 31/08/2023

This new major version started on an heavy focus on “on screen” dash windows management with a complete rewriting of that part , and ended to affect all aspects of dash management … desktop, web, overlays, usb screens …. as well as many little (but significant 😉 ) changes along the road.

Take a deep breath …. here comes the “condensed” changelog of almost 5 months of work !

Dashstudio Desktop

  • Unlimited dashboard saved locations
    • It can be a monitor, a predefined windowed location, or simply the last location.
    • Saved locations creates a “device” offering a similar “all in one” experience as other usb devices
    • Various “Start mode” (At simhub startup, at game process start, at game connected or even manual).
    • Individual controls for each location (next screen, previous etc …).
    • Controls to open/close the dash.
    • When opening on a location from the dash list the dash will replace the previously displayed one.
    • If the dash is configured to be displayed on a specific monitor it will automatically close/open depending if the monitor is available.
  • Dash Playlist management
    • Ability to choose precisely the next/previous dash content :
      – All dashboards
      – Favourite dashboards
      – Specific playlist
    • Added explicit per game default dash/idle dash reloading
    • It’s now possible to assign car specific playlists.
  • Better handling of “transparency” for dashboards (it will automatically detect if transparency is available in the design and remember the last state).
  • Better handling of dashboards previous/next actions : they will now take care of switching automatically to the last saved rendering engine and transparency settings)
  • Replaced the desktop HTML Rendering engine from CefSharp to Microsoft WebView 2.
  • Updated CefSharp to the latest version (Still Used by USB displays and webpage component in WPF rendering engine)
  • Html engine rendering rate is now separately configurable depending of the usage : desktop or browser
  • It’s now possible to choose the default rendering engine globally (HTML or WPF)
  • Dashboards resizing can now be done in a more window standard way by grabbing any side
  • Workarounds for monitor resolution changes, when in full screen if the dash is pushed away from the monitor (IE : during primary monitor resolution change), the dash will recover its intended screen automatically.
  • Scalable dash UI : Buttons and title bar can be scaled up or down
  • Better monitor identification (a kind of mix of monitor name, windows id, serial number, eeid informations ….) allowing to more consistently keep track of a unique monitor
  • Workaround for windows taskbar sometimes losing track of fullscreen windows and sometimes covering a dash.

Dashstudio USB devices (Vocore, usbd480 …)

  • Added dithering algorithm
  • Updated support to add the new dash playlist management system (see above)

Dashstudio WEB (Mobile, browser ….)

  • It’s now possible to create a mobile device “slot” with complete remote control giving a similar experience and control as an usb device
    • Automatic dashs changes
    • Per car playlist management
    • Force landscape support
    • Mirror support (for aftermarket phone Hud mirrors)
    • Easier controls assignment (one slot => one set of controls)
    • List of connected devices to the “slot”

Dashstudio Overlays

  • Reworked the “overlay editor” to get it more friendly
  • Added overlay edition control
  • Added overlay close control
  • Added semi transparent background during overlay edition to make it easier to locate parts
  • Overlay layout control window is now only “Top most” when focused allowing to bo above the overlays when used, but behind the game and overlays when not focused.
  • Overlay layouts auto start :
    • It’s now possible to choose a global default overlay layout or a specific one for each game
    • Autostart can now occur right at start/game change, or can be deferred to game start
    • Multiple deferred auto start behaviours available (Only start once, start every time, start and close automatically

Dashstudio Editor

  • Added video (webm) component (this might not work on IOS where “autoplay” is messy)…

Games

  • Added eXpansim support
  • Added volvo the game support
  • Added RDS – The Official Drift Videogame support
  • Completely took back from the ground BeamNg support with a dedicated telemetry mod providing significantly more data than the combination of official OutGauge/Motionsim outputs.
  • Updated game “start options” to add “VR” (SteamVR) /”OtherVR” (Oculus) options for games supporting it (for steam).

Devices

  • Since a saved dashboard can now be used as a “device” any HDMI screen can benefit from it :
    • Added a new standard device : standard leds + hdmi screen
    • Updated the DDU10 device to offer dash control (it needs to be deleted/added back).
  • Removed the now obsolete “load legacy settings” option when adding devices.
  • Added support for Chimaera Racing CR-5 Pro
  • Added support for SimCore STD98
  • Updated default soelpec default device profiles

Belt tensioner

  • UI styling changes
  • Added pitch/roll acceleration effects
  • Expanded smoothing ranges
  • Splitted Gain and Max actuator travel for better flexibility
  • Added a connection status indicator
  • Added a button to test that max travel is not losing steps
  • Added a recalibrate button and action

Other

  • Thanks to the lessons learned during the dash window rewrite a workaround for the extremely annoying NV surround behaviours has been added (Shaking window during maximizing, taskbar position randomly taken into account …). The window will resize itself to the correct location instead of letting the system (and nvidia) do it avoiding the Nvidia surround “approximate” behaviors. (Added to the simhub main window as well as the dash studio editor.
  • Since administrator rights are no longer mandatory in most of the “normal” uses cases,
    • SimHub won’t prompt anymore for administrator rights at first start
    • Game setup will use an external “elevated” process, time to install the plugins/make required config files changes instead of requiring whole simHub privileges elevation.
    • SimHub will check for game process elevation and alert in case the game runs in higher privileges.
  • More homogeneous styling of game alerts (manual configuration,auto configuration, udp conflits, admin rights)
  • Reworked Tab control styling (it clearly had a “visibility” issue)
  • Added an option to the installer to install/update the default dashs/overlays
  • A new welcome screen will ask for your preferred units at the first Simhub start

Notes

Known plugins requiring an update :

  • leoxz plugin won’t work with v9 version (SimBridge 1.4.1 at the time of this writing) until it gets updated (due to the CEFSharp upgrade)

Android app has been updated :

  • Existing Android App must be uninstalled before installing the new one, to download it simply open the dash list from the mobile browser and download it from here.

Are you still here ? 🙂

Have fun !

8.4.7 – 8.4.8 – 06/07/2023

  • LibUSB upgrade (Vocore, AX206) , this seems to solve screen not detected issues on some systems.
  • Added support for GSI X29
  • Added support for some Reiza Studios “oldies” (rfactor 1 based) :
    • Copa Petrobras de Marcas
    • Formula truck 2013
  • Fix for a crash suspending telemetry in iracing when still in the menus.

8.4.6 – 01/07/2023

8.4.4 – 8.4.5  – 27/06/2023 

  • Added dashboard variables (reusable variables at dashboard level which can be transmited to child widgets)
  • Added new dashstudio images tool window
  • Added dashboard local javascript extensions (so extensions can be exported/imported with the dashboard)
  • Added Drag’n’drop support for rpms segments (led editor)
  • Added shortname (F. Lastname) for opponents data
  • New ncalc/js functions : drivershortname, driverinitials
  • Added BestLapOpponentSameClassPosition property
  • Added sound input mute toggle action (mic …) and related status property
  • Fix : Overlay<->Dashboard conversion not refreshing the lists
  • Completely rewritten gap estimation for games not providing it (AC, ACC …..) using a “micro sector approach” ,
    Warning : this is a generic “F1 Like” computation : this can’t give exactly the same result as in game displays. Games uses many different computations/estimations which can’t be reproduced exactly unless the game provides directly in telemetry the shown values.
    NB : When games gives those values, this computation is overriden by the game reported values.
  • Relative gap (ahead/behind on track) now uses the previously mentionned “micro sector approach”
  • Workaround for invalid ACC opponents data when they are crossing start line (Completed laps + Spline position inconsistencies) messing the leaderbaord order
  • Added support for Zen’s Simwheels Uniflex-Elite

  • F123 : Added red flag status reset when the start lights are starting.
  • New : ACC, Use temperatures (air, road) from Braodcasting API when not availalble from shared memory telemetry
  • 8.4.5 Hotfix :
    • Removed some now useless constraints before ahead/behind data were made available
    • Fix for the BestLapOpponentSameClassPosition not giving the correct value

  • NCALC/JS engine : added bestsectortime function
  • 8.4.3 HOTFIX : Fixed automatic game detection only working once

8.4.1 – 13/06/2023 – Hotfix

  • Fix : F1 23 reading could crash when reading the new tire set data, the data has been removed time to get a better understanding of how it works.

8.4.0 – 12/06/2023

  • Added initial support for F1 23 (Thanks for everyone who helped to add it during the beta phase)
  • Improved Fake CH340 chips detection and added automatic driver fix prompt when the required conditions are met (fake ch340G with latest driver)
  • Improved serial port device name detection for HID devices (it will show the USB descriptor device name instead of a generic Serial port name), available in both simhub and setup tool.
  • Improved package manager (Arduino, drivers …) cancel handling.
  • New devices added :
    • GRID DDU5 native support (needs an incoming firmware update)
    • GRID DDU10 leds native support (needs an incoming firmware update)
    • Precision Sim Engineering PSP support

Have fun !

8.3.13 – 29/05/2023

  • Added new ACC Mclaren 720s gt3 evo brake bias correction
  • Added Fanatec pedals rumble data stream timeout to avoid getting SimHub getting stuck in case of hardware/usb issue.

8.3.12 – 25/05/2023

  • Since a recent driver update delivered through windows update, some counterfeit CH340G won’t work correctly (used on some Arduino clones) : Added warnings about these chips issues and links to help diagnose it. Those messages will appear when:
    • A CH340G based serial port is selected in the Arduino Setup tool
    • A CH340G based serial port has been scanned without success in SimHub (unrecognised)
  • Fixed : Dash studio Z-order menu wrong labels.
  • Fixed : On Dash studio button component the simulated keys property was readonly.

NB : Overall it’s not possible to detect automatically if a CH340G chip is genuine, those messages are purely informative and shown for any CH340G chip to help you troubleshoot issues if unfortunately you are victim of a fake CH340G chip.

More information about counterfeit CH340G : https://github.com/SHWotever/SimHub/wiki/Arduino—Counterfeit-Fake-CH340G-chips-driver-issues

8.3.11 – 19/05/2023

  • New
    • Default wheels buttons colors changes are now visualized in real time on the device instead of being applied after validating the dialog.
    • Added rim model detection for the control mapper plugin for Fanatec bases (thanks to Fanatec for making it possible).
    • If a javascript extension is invalid SimHub will continue executing other extensions instead of rejecting the whole JS expression.
    • Added a search box in the “add device” dialog.
  • Fixed
    • Dashboards/designer could freeze after a game was taking/releasing fullscreen (old <=DX11 games) when running a dashboard with Dial Gauges
    • New RF2 plugin data were getting mixed.
    • Logging was creating an useless empty file when starting as administrator
  • New devices added :
    • Ascher Racing McLaren Artura SPORT-SC
    • Ascher Racing McLaren Artura PRO-SC
    • GRID Brows V2 (this does not cover old Grid Brows “V1” still emulating the arduino sketch).
    • Added support for multiple HSR fans in the ShakeIt wind plugin (Multiple fans support requires new hardware versions embedding an unique identifier)
    • CP-S Formula (Collaboration between TwentyOne Performance, Pro-Sim and Cool Performance)
    • Reorganized Grid devices to offer simple/advanced devices profiles instead of a limited generic “Grid by simlab” profile.
  • Technical :
    • Upgraded VC++ x86 2019 redistributable to VC++ 2015-2022 x86 redistributable package.

8.3.10 – 08/05/2023

  • Added new ACC DLC cars brake-bias offsets
  • Updated RF2 plugin to the latest version (adding some electric data support to the rawdata), this version is the same as Crew Chief to avoid any useless conflicts.
  • Fixed controller plugin not showing all the devices when the list was too long
  • Startup screen is now showing in taskbar.
  • After USBD480 disabling / disconnecting touch is now disabled (to avoid some sticky issues with non touch versions requiring a physical power cycle to get touch disabled internally. This was causing extra bandwidth usage and display shifts on an overloaded USB port/hub and making hard to diagnose such bandwidth issues)
  • Added two global shortcuts (working from SimHub main window) :
    • CTRL + L : Opens the log folder
    • CTRL + O : Starts current game
  • OutGauge (LFS, BeamNg) now binds to any IP instead of being restricted to 127.0.0.1 (local computer)
  • Fixed “save opened dashboards” locking simhub exit (and dash studio options saving).
  • Fixed a memory leak occurring when enabling VJoy output option in the control mapper while VJoy is not installed on the computer.
  • Changed extension of all logging files from .log to .txt to make it easier to open.
  • Reworked the watchdog traces to make them easier to open (pure developer convenience :D)
  • Updated most of the SimHub libraries dependencies : Log4Net, Xceed, AvalonDock,, asp.net core, Jint (Javascript engine library) ….

8.3.8 – 8.3.9 – 24/04/2023

  • Fix : Control mapper/Controllers input plugin : Reading the controller buttons/pov count could create interference with Wheel FFB, any references of it has been removed.
  • During the previous bug hunt, the controllers input plugin has been mostly rewritten, as a bonus it’s now possible to control which controller simhub will connect to.
  • Fix : Dashstudio web engine would not load properly dashs and widgets with special characters in the file name.
  • Fix : In Simulight plugin it was not possible anymore to edit adalight led layout.
  • Cleanup : Another wave of unused dlls has been removed from the installer, This hopefully should be the last one thanks to an huge internal rework of Simhub dependencies management. As a result to all the recent work about installer size, it went from 240MB to 133MB, helping with download size as well as installation/update speed.
  • 8.3.9 Hotfix : dashboards with spaces/special characters names would not load on USB devices.

8.3.7 – 13/04/2023

  • Fixed an issue with ATMega32U4 based arduinos not reconnecting after game switching
  • Fixed a false UDP conflict detection with ACC happening if the game was started before SimHub (The message was not affecting game data reading)
  • Spring cleaning : Make way ! Make way !
    • Log tab can now be disabled/enabled in SimHub settings (fresh installs will get it disabled by default, on previous installs it can be disabled in settings)
    • Additional plugins tab is now hidden if no plugins uses it
    • Arduino plugin settings tabs have been reordered to give priority to RGB leds and matrixes which are the most used now.
    • Removed some unused dlls
  • Dashstudio widgets
    • Initial screen index can now be bound and allows to change dynamically the screen
    • Screens roles and activation in widgets can now be enabled in the widget properties (EnableScreenRolesAndActivation)
  • Updated IT translation thanks to Marco G.

8.3.6 – 08/04/2023

Eh windows I need a bit more time to shutdown all those devices !

  • Fix : Windows was randomly closing SimHub prematurely when shutting down the computer. This was occasionally not giving the required time to SimHub to close and clear properly all devices currently running (leds displays …), SimHub will now ask to windows this required extra time.
  • In addition Simhub actual shutdown time has been improved by closing displays in parallel instead of one at a time. (Shutdown time can vary a lot depending of the enabled devices, current tasks running etc …)
  • Reworked some logging to make it a bit easier to read the logs.
  • Fix : Preventing a plugin UI crash to block SimHub loading (a message will show instead notifying the error)
  • Fix : Shakeit advanced output settings would not get saved sometime (Suspend settings, automatic restart etc …)
  • Fix : I got a couple of reports of Simucube 2 Pro FFB not working when things were started in a specific order (at windows startup for instance) I’ve not found yet any causes or been able to reproduce it, But It could be related to the wheel detection in the new Control Mapper plugin. As a safety measure :
    • SC2 rim detection does not run anymore when the option is not checked. Detection when enabled will start after 5s and only if Truedrive is already running to make absolutely sure to not interfer with its startup.
    • Stopped all the background routines running when the control mapper plugin is enabled but the output option is “Disabled” (which is the default out of box)
    • As a double safety the plugin is not enabled anymore on fresh installs (if you don’t use and it’s enabled you can disable it in SimHub settings).

8.3.5 – 04/04/2023 – Hotfix

  • Fixed an issue I was tracking since a few days without success : default shake it bass shaker profile created on a fresh install were having effects not correctly initialized and were not outputting any sounds.
  • Fixed the new stream deck control mapper plugin not showing the selected input after reloading the editor : uninstall  first the old plugin version using right click on the action in the stream deck software then reinstall it using simhub
  • Removed the new fixed TCP port (49876) for web API which seems to interfere with other services on some machines.

8.3.4 – 04/04/2023

  • Reworked installer :
    • Arduino IDE is now installed on demand and not part anymore of the installer.
    • USB displays drivers (USBD480, Vocore, AX206) can now be installed through installer (enabled by default). As installing these drivers is a long process they won’t be installed on updates, only on first install.
    • Most installer dependencies (vc++ etc …) are now using proper silent install switches
    • Monster games plugin (nascar heat …) is now downloaded “on demand”, some antiviruses being picky about it and not part anymore of the installer.
    • The installer will now try to shutdown Simhub in a proper manner before installing.
    • All the above work made the installer significantly slimmer with some positives side effects : Antivirus scan after download is significantly faster, actual installation is faster
  • Control mapper
  • USB Displays
    • All usb displays (Vocore, USBD480 …) now have a framerate limit available according to their actual capabilities
    • Improved framerate limiting algorythm
    • Added contrast control
  • Fixes :
    • Fix : ShakeIt wind could go above 100% of wind speed making actual wind speed overflowing and starting back from 0 (issue primarly visible in shakeIt wind when using manual max speed)
    • Fix : Dashstudio widgets “initialscreenindex” was not taken into account on web engine (usb displays, browsers)
    • Fix : Devices not allowed to be suspended (when screen is off) would still show a suspended state (primarily visible in remote desktop mode)
    • Fix : Fixed a crash when using an USBD480 with builtin leds (SRH G-force LCD Pro) with a non led compatible device profile
    • Fix : Dashboard repetitions were not initialized when switching dashboards using actions
  • Improvements :
    • Serial port characteristics retrieving through WMI is now restricted to the essential properties, hopefully making simhub faster to load when a device is making WMI slow to respond.
    • If an application is using already the same TCP port as SimHub internal server port (Fiddler …), simhub will peek automatically a new TCP port the the session, avoiding issues with usb screens.
    • A new fixed TCP port (49876) has been added for API interactions between apps and SimHub (avoiding some extra settings to set the current port or failure is the TCP port has been changed through the settings).

8.3.3 – 26/03/2023 – Hotfix

  • Fix : Shakeit effect folders were removed from profiles while trying to automatically remove incompatible effects between bass shakers and motors.
  • Fix : Dashstudio buttons were not showing the pressed image when defined in HTML mode.
  • Feature : Reintroduced the UDP games conflict detailed detection , the conflicting app name will now be shown again (the feature was removed as an attempt to workaround Windows defender false positive detection).
  • The installer will now be delivered as an exe instead of a zip file. Size variation does not justify anymore to deliver it as a zip.

8.3.0 – 8.3.2 – 24/03/2023

  • Control remapper plugin :
    • New “FN” virtual modifier allowing to use buttons/povs combos and virtually double the number of inputs of your controller https://github.com/SHWotever/SimHub/wiki/Control-Mapper-plugin/#about-fn-feature
    • Added wheel model detection for simucube allowing to create input profiles per wheel (optional), Huge thanks to Mika from Simucube for the information making it possible
    • Reworked settings storage to be more future proof (all settings should be kept in most cases).
    • Added some indications when a VJoy issue is detected about :

8.2.2 – 17/02/2023

  • New control mapper plugin (Documentation : https://github.com/SHWotever/SimHub/wiki/Control-Mapper-plugin)
    • An alternative to various “Joy to joy” solutions already available, but primarily focused on wheels hot swapping, it allows to aggregate multiple wheels buttons / controllers to a single one allowing easy in game controller/wheel hot swapping.
    • Many simple use cases :
      • Wheel hot swapping : no matter if you have two or ten wheels, diy or commercial , wheel swapping dream is often broken by in game mappings to be done again
      • Sequential shifter vs paddles ? you can have both ready to go.
      • Controllers limits ? ATS/ETS2 limits you to 4 controllers : one handbrake, one split shifter, one shifter, one wheel … No room available anymore for your button box or any fancy controller you might still have.
    • Some key features :
      • “role name” based mapping, because most wheels have many buttons nowadays who can remember what does “button 1” or “button 42” ? It allows to quickly add a new wheel based on names instead of numbers.
      • Multiple virtual controller options available to fit as best as possible your existing setup :
        • Vjoy : as it is THE known software only solution for such cases, but it went so popular that it’s maybe already busy for another software, and adding multiple Vjoy controllers is not always handled fluently by all games.
        • Arduino Pro micro / leonardo bridge: just plug one of those arduino boards and after a two clicks flash process, benefit of a driver less and conflict less virtual controller.
      • A simple web interface accessible from your phone allows to do all your in game bindings avoiding tinkering with HIDHide and similar softwares to avoid double inputs.
      • SimHub internal actions bindings will use “roles” in priority allowing to bind actions independently of the actual device.
image
  • GT Sport/ GT7
    • It’s now possible to configure the UDP receive port (to allow usage together with another application forwarding data or any UDP forwarder)

8.0.0 – 8.0.1 – 29/05/2022

Warning : SimHub V8 contains some braking changes due to a major rework of DashStudio internal structure :

  • DashStudio Dashboards created with versions 7.X and prior will be automatically upgraded to the new file version. If you were using an older version and want to be able to rollback to versions 7.X make sure to do a backup first of your DashStudio dashboards contained in SimHub\DashTemplates folder.
  • Some malformed NCalc formulas are not supported anymore

If you wan’t to stay on SimHub version 7.X you can download the last version (7.4.23) here

After a few months of hard work it’s time for a big release !
This rework gets DashStudio editor closer to real life race dash editors (like Motec Display Creator), and gets the experience more in line to the designers “UX” standards like Visual Studio or similar. I sincerely hope you will like it ! 
For the occasion I thought that upgrading to “V8” was a nice symbol for a Sim Racing software !

Lets go for the change list !

    • Removed “minimum rpm value” from car settings which was quite useless and making things more complex.
  • Splitted Iracing car name and car id to feed better the car settings ui
  • Added Forza car id as car identifier in simhub (sorry there won’t be any car names yet, there is no official list available at my knowledge)

7.3.0 – 28/11/2020

  • Introducing the vocore screen ! A 4″ high resolution USB display for your sim racing hardware creations !
    I also took the opportunity of this release to write you a choice guide

  • Added brake bias correction values for latest ACC cars
  • Arduino setup tool :
    • Added clear security tips about arduino firmware upload to the setup tool and an acknowledgment step before upload.
    • Added hard coded upload security lock to prevent uploading to an arduino already running SMC3 based firmware (Lot of arduino based motion platforms uses this firmware).
  • I had feedback about few people having overwritten inadvertently their Arduino based device firmware (motion, button box …) with the Simhub arduino setup tool.
    Let’s explain how such mistake is possible : an arduino being an arduino, it’s made by design to be easily overwritten with a new firmware . Since the affected devices have not been write protected by their respective manufacturer (by removing/disabling the arduino bootloader), it was extremely easy to overwrite the firmware by mistake by choosing the wrong serial port before upload.
    That said, nobody has interest into getting these device’s firmware overwritten. However,​ since these devices have no particular characteristics allowing to recognize them, only clear prevention instructions about how to avoid firmware overwrite on a random Arduino based device can prevent it. And that’s the purpose of the two Arduino setup tool features added with this release, which I hope will be clear enough to reduce such mistakes.
