How to use telemetry with the GS-5 for games not officially supported? (e.g. DCS)

Chris King

Can anyone please share the method to use telemetry from games that are not officially supported by Sim Commander software to actuate the GS-5? I am especially interested in DCS. 

I saw on the previous forum that there was a thread on how to do this and a lot of helpful discussion (I think even with links to a GitHub?); I just got the GS-5 all set up and was hoping to try this out soon. When I saw that people were having success with this it was one of the things that really helped tip me over the decision to purchase. Thanks in advance!

I'd love to see official support using Sim Commander software for DCS too.
