Make sure that your Android Device is on the same network like your PC and then Pair the Android Device with your PC
Click on the Hamburger Menu Button in the upper left edge of the screen.
If your desired Game is in the list of supported Games click on it's Name and proceed with Step 4
If your game or Application is not in this list, scroll down to the Button Box for other PC Games/Apps Header and click on the Add Button Box Menu entry
Enter the name of your Game/Application or any other Name of your choice to identify this Button Box later, then click on Add Button Box
Click on the newly created entry with the Name of your Button Box
Click on the Pen Icon to enter the Edit Mode
Then click on the (+) Icon
and finally on Add widget/design
Click on Create new layout from scratch
If you don't see this Message Box, you already have a Widget on this screen, so you can just continue
The Customize Screen of the Widget opens, where you can change the Color of the button...
In this example we like to control the Headlights of the in-game Car, which is mapped to the 'H' key as you can see on the Screenshot.
Check the settings of your game, which key is assigned to the action you like to control. Assign the desired key, if none is assigned yet
Now, back in the App, scroll down until you see the entry called Key and choose the desired key to simulate ('H' in this example)
If you like to simulate a keystroke like Ctrl+H, you can add the desired additional keys as Modifier1 and Modifier2
You can also specifiy when the Keystroke is sent.
Choose On Press if you like it to behave like a normal keyboard button, which is simulated as long as you press it in the app
On Release will simulate a single key push and release event once you release the virtual button in the app.
Now close the Dialog with a click on OK.
In the Editor click on the checkmark icon to save your Design.
Some Games, especially those that are started with Admin rights, don't recognize simulated buttons if SIM Dashboard is not running with Admin Rights as well.
Solution: Enter the Edit Mode in the App, by clicking the Pen Icon in the upper menu. Then select the Button and hit the green Customize icon. Finally check the assigned Key.
Solution: Open the Settings of the game and check if the button that is mapped for your desired action matches the one selected in the app.
Solution: Re-Pair the Android Device with your PC, because the Ip Address of your PC may have changed, so the App is sending the Command to the wrong Ip.
Make sure that the SIM Dashboard PC Application is allowed in the Firewall
Solution: Make sure that the selected Game is a PC Game. Now open the Settings of the App General -> Select your Gaming Platform(s) and make sure that the PC Platform is selected. Finally restart the App and try again.
