Sim Racing Studio Installation

  1. Close all other motion software before installing Sim Racing Studio.
  2. Download and install Sim Racing Studio from here.
  3. Once Sim Racing Studio is installed, follow the guidance here to activate your license.

Hardware Configuration

  1. Once your license has been activated, click SETUP at the top and select Hardware in the left toolbar 
  2. Scroll down to the MOTION section
  3. In the Manufacturer field, select DOF REALITY
  4. In the Model field, select the specific model of platform you purchased (M2, H3, P3, H6, P6, etc)
  5. Click SAVE in the upper right in the PROFILE IN USE box
  6. Wait up to 30 seconds for a green check mark to appear next to Motionbox in the HARDWARE STATUS box in the right toolbar.
    1. A green check mark indicates the Motionbox is connected and the SRS license has validated
    2. A yellow check mark indicates the Motionbox is connected but the SRS license has not been validated
    3. A red check mark indicates the Motionbox is not connected and/or SRS in unable to detect it
      1. If there is a red check mark next to Motionbox, restart your PC. If after restarting the red check mark remains, follow the instructions here to manually connect.
      2. If Sim Racing Studio is still unable to connect to the  Motionbox, check section 5.2 of this manual or contact DOF Reality support at

Hardware Test

Once Motionbox shows as a green check mark in HARDWARE STATUS, test the platform's movement.

  1. Click on the Start Test button and move the sliders from left to right. Verify that the DOF Reality platform is moving correctly. If its not moving correctly, check that you have the cables properly connected.
  2. Once finished testing, click Stop Test
  3. Click the Save button in the top right of Sim Racing Studio in the PROFILE IN USE box

Game Setup

Sim Racing Studio will attempt to automate any games that are supported to make them ready to play. If the game is installed on your PC and it's ready to play with no further action needed, you will see Ready to play listed in the STATUS column in the GAMES > PC or Console page. You can find more information on making a game Ready to play here. For Console games, please use the guidance here.

If you have issues making a Sim Racing Studio supported game work with your DOF Reality platform, please submit a New Support Ticket at the top of this page. 

Using DOF Reality with a Game

Sim Racing Studio will automatically connect to a game once its started. However, some games might require you to start the race to connect whereas others might connect from the main menu.

You can verify your DOF Reality platform is connected to the game from the status shown in the PROFILE IN USE box in the upper right of Sim Racing Studio. There are 3 game statuses available: 

  1. STAND BYIndicates a game is not running and Sim Racing Studio is standing by to start.
  2. GAME RUNNINGIndicates a game is detected; however, no telemetry to move platform has yet to be received. For some games this is normal as they only send telemetry once you are on the track or in the air within the game
    1. The GAME RUNNING status allows you to use the TUNING -> MOTION page in order to make changes to the tuning parameters for the game. 
  3. TELEMETRY DATA: Indicates that Sim Racing Studio is receiving telemetry data from the game for motion. If there is a green check mark next to Motionbox in the HARDWARE STATUS box, the platform will be moving based on the telemetry from the game. If there is no motion, ensure the DOF Reality platform is turned On. 
    1. You can get additional information on hardware statuses by hovering your cursor over the items listed in the HARDWARE STATUS box.
