  • OBDsim with FB

    Can OBDsim be used with FB? How can we channel FB data to OBDsim? I read about fbd but I do not know how to link them up?

    Please help...anyone?

    The current OBDSim way of talking to an FB is by using dbus and fbd. That's really not an ideal approach, for two reasons:
    1) It uses DBus
    2) It relies on Linux.

    If you're on linux, then go ahead and use it [I wrote the example dbus plugin script you'd need]

    A smarter developer than I could easily write a plugin for obdsim to talk directly to the FB. Plugin writing in OBDSim is really easy, and documented in a README file in the source.

    Lemme know a bit more about what you're actually trying to do, and I'll see if I can provide more advice

      I am thinking of obdsim reading straight from fb in windows. Any hint of how I could do this?
