Quick Start

This section explains how to get started with SIMRIG Control Center. Have a look at the other sections for a more in-depth explanation of its operation.

Look at the Installation section if you have not yet installed the program.

Go ahead and start SIMRIG Control Center.

This is what you will see when you start the program for the first time:


We have a single device connected to our system. This is apparent by the box in the middle of the screen and the message: “Connected to 1 device”.

Motion is disabled at startup. You must manually enable motion by pressing the Enable button.

No telemetry is currently available as indicated by the “Looking for known process…” message. This message goes away when you launch a supported game.

Car and Game Selection

The software comes pre-configured with a selection of cars. It is recommended to try one of these the first time.

  • Assetto Corsa – BMW M3 E30 Group A

  • iRacing – Global Mazda MX-5 Cup

  • Project CARS 2 – Chevrolet Camaro Z/28 ‘69 TransAm

  • Race Room Racing Experience – Volvo 240 Turbo

Other cars require a profile to work properly. Read more about profiles and auto-tuning.

Some games, like Project CARS 2, does not work out of the box. They require that telemetry is enabled. See Supported Games for more information.
