Help with a simple self made Arduino + Nextion dashboard.

2 posts in this topic

Hi. Im Dezsni and I am making my own very simple dashboard for Project Cars 2 using an Arduino Uno and a small Nextion display.

I have very little experience with Arduino or Nextion and I'm asking if any of you can help me get started with creating a dashboard. I have tried making it by myself, but I do not know how to start and how to receive information from PC2 and convert it to commands that the nextion display would understand. I cannot use simdash or any programs like that, I have to make everything from scratch and that's where the problems start, because of no experience and little arduino programming knowledge. 

Any help at all would be greatly appreciated!

If you have no experience, then you're not going to be able to make everything from scratch. Use Simhub/Simdash or alternative.

 

The game sends data out via shared memory through a custom plugin. Usually it's on a network port, and you have to have UDP shared memory enabled in the game.

 

I don't know any more to help you...

Good luck!
