  • I used Roll & Pitch axis only for forward, backward, left, right, nitro & handbrake parameters to control the game.
  • Download all source code.
  • Start server from windows system to receive axis tilts in degrees. Run GameServer.py
  • Send UDP packets from Pi to server. Run Client.py
  • Enter IP of your connection not IP of Pi.
  • Open cmd & type ipconfig/all to see IP of your connection.
  • Start Pi using putty for faster connection. Tutorial
  • Create hotspot & connect both Pi & Windows system for Wireless Control.
  • Recommended use Ethernet for faster connection & Enjoy! the game without any lag.
