Looks cool :)   B)

 

Once i tried the same, but ofc not as complex as yours..

 

I bought a 2nd hand IVECO driver chair. Found a "h-shifter project" in the internet and took it to a CNC machinery center and built it up (12 front-2 rear), bought a MOMO driving wheel and adapted it to my Fanatec set. (You know, big driving wheel improves realism.) By connecting the pc to a 55" Led TV, the project ended. I played about a month with this configuration, then i need to move my house. All the stuff is now staying at cellar and i'm too lazy to set it up again :)

Thanks for all the nice replies guys, this is what keeps me going SUPER! :)

 

@Gorkal1ty yes, finding a screen without having to pay will be an issue :) I hope I can find a cheap projector or nice sponsor :)

That looks amazing. Was going to do something like that, but didn't have the money or supplies to do it. Good luck finishing it

Retarder is finished and ready for the ETS2 community to use!

 

How to Guide:

 

1# Buy a Scania Retarder Part No.1349967 Here or Here

 

2# Buy a cheap Arduino Leonardo

 

3# Upload my Code with Arduino IDE to your Leonardo

 

4# Connect Retarder PIN 2 to Leonardo 5V, Connect Retarder PIN 6 to Leonardo PIN GND and Finally Connect Retarder PIN 7 to Leonardo PIN A0

 

5# Assign a key for your in-game Retarder (0 Decrease and 9 Increase) in the ETS2 Setting menu

 

6# Disable "Automatic Retarder" in the game settings in ETS2

 

7# Have fun!
