The telemetry of The Bus is enabled within the game options. The SIM Dashboard Server application should already be installed.
The application supports you with an automatic configuration feature which can enable telemetry of The Bus easily. More on that in the following tutorial.
Why is The Bus Support currently Beta?
The Telemetry Interface of the game is currently in a Beta State, that means there can be unexpected behavior or crashes of the game.
This screenshot shows the Interface of the SIM Dashboard Server application. Click on the tab Games to get the shown view. Make sure that the entry The Bus is selected in the list.
- The red X shows that The Bus is currently not configured
- This button sets The Bus configuration, so that it provides data for the SIM Dashboard Server application (The Bus must be closed when using this button).
This part of the tutorial is dedicated to the automatic configuration, which should always be tried first, because its much easier than the manual configuration.
Perform automatic configuration
Make sure that The Bus is currently not running but was started at least once!
Click on the button Modify game config for telemetry.
The application updates the configuration of The Bus afterwards.
Automatic configuration finished
If everything worked as expected, the list shows the correct configuration (1) (with a green checkmark) and the button for the automatic configuration (2) on the right side is hidden.
You can now start The Bus and receive data in the SIM Dashboard Android App. Remember, that the SIM Dashboard Server application must be running while your are playing the game!
This part of the tutorial is optional and should only be performed if the automatic configuration failed for some reason.
Start the game
Start The Bus.
Open the Options -> Game and tick the Enable Telemetry Interface Option. Restart the Game afterwards.
