Why is it good?
You can swap between games without needing to remember any keys at all as you can set one up for each game.Just run any game and go straight away.If you haven't bought Wings Over Flanders Fields (WOFF) yet, don't hesitate as you only have to set up axis controls and a fire button - the rest are done for you!!
Quicker and easier than using a keyboard (not need to hold shift keys or look for a key).
For me a keyboard breaks immersion.
For Il2-1946, Xplane and Falcon BMS (just starting) I use 3 different third party tablet controllers that were made specifically for each one.
So I prefer using a tablet.
Its a bit like having a customized simpit for each one - if you try it you may agree.
Response time is fantastic and it doesn't disconnect or crashHow to install?
It is for Car Racing sims but if you download the app from google play and purchase ONLY the "Button Box" option for a few dollars then you can download button box templates from the community - these are free. The only other thing to do is to download the PC app.
to install sim dashboard and get it running takes only a few minutes:
1) PC - download and install the PC programhttps://www.stryder-it.de/simdashboard/
2) Phone/tablet - install the apphttps://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=de.stryder_it.simdashboard&hl=en_US
3) have both running
4) on the phone/tablet app press the 3 dots top-right for settings then choose "setup your pc" and there is a wizard.
5) Then - Note you need to make a SINGLE BUTTON BOX - then put in 3 BLANK PAGES (in Android app search for my name "Fang" - then for each page choose 1 of the 3 pages. That way a single press will take you to the next page eg I prefer to press the top left corner to go to each page.
You can edit easily, for example crank starting required me to change something in the keys file, you may wish to simply make it "E" for auto start
Btw I initially made one for the greatest space game Evochron Legacy (like Elite Dangerous but without the time wasting and with far more content) which also works with its sister program Arvoch Alliance (think Wing Commander/Free Space like missions story) - can use TrackIR if you have it and joystick setup is easy - has great dogfighting - also has a community modpack:https://www.starwraith.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=27&t=13484
