I’m working at an automotive company, and am using the FMOD car engine sample that came with Designer. I’m using a steering wheel and pedals as input, but am having trouble making a realistic model for the gas pedal

I was wondering if anyone here has experience with this and could point me in the right direction?

When you say gas pedal do you mean the acceleration?

If so have you tried the tutorial on creating an engine and using the load and RPM parameters?

I’d imagine for simple system this would do, if it’s anything more complex can you give some more info as I’ve done a fair few engine sets in various different methods :D[/quote:2qbbpbkw]

Yes sorry I should have been more specific. I’ve already done all the car engine stuff in the tutorial and used some formulas posted on the forums to calculate load,rpms. When I said gas pedal I meant a physical gas pedal haha

Right now I am using a XBOX 360 steering wheel/pedal set and I am trying to correctly model how the gas pedal should work. I’m using XInput to handle the input, so when I press the pedal it gives me a byte(0-255) but I don’t know how to model this well for an automatic car. I know how to increase how fast the RPMs go up when I push in the pedal, but I’m having trouble thinking of a way to handle what happens when you let off the gas pedal and how to make it so if the pedal is kept at the same spot your RPMs will "level out" at that spot
