Stream Deck compatibility

Hello,

The old discussion forum had a workaround for running stream deck and sim commander together, I’m having issues and can’t remember it. I think it was an order of operations thing. Thanks

No one here at SimXperience uses the 3rd party Stream Deck tool so I cannot comment with certainty.

However, as I understand it, it has a rather unsophisticated virtual button tool that can only interact with a game that has the window focus. 

If you are using our HUD/In game on-screen display tool, it would have the focus instead of the game. You can try without our HUD feature enabled for your profile. You can also try clicking on the game Window before you try issuing a command from stream deck. 

Aside from window focus, I can't think of how else we could impact it. If it does turn out to be a Window focus issue, you can present this to the stream deck developers. It's quite possible to have no reliance on window focus. The Sim Commanders virtual button box tools are a good example of this, having the ability to send keystrokes to games that aren't in focus.

NOTE: TO keep the Sim Commander section of the Q&A forum free of 3rd party tool discussions, we'll be adding a new Q&A forum next week and moving this post.
