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.

Connect your SIMRIG SR1 or SIMRIG SR2 the PC.

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 status message at the bottom of the screen: “Connected to 1 device”. If this message reads “Searching for devices” then make sure the SIMRIG SR1/SR2 is connected to your PC.

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; or manually select a console game.


Console users should head over to the console specific getting started guide.

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.


Make sure to allow SIMRIG Control Center through the Windows Firewall. Many games transmit telemetry over the local network. Network access is required to enable motion in these games.
