  • Re: F1 2017 D-Box and UDP Output Specification

    Hoo said:
    We'll look into the additional player telemetry to see if we can keep that running. 

    Regarding names, we are not permitted (by the console manufacturers) to broadcast the names as they appear on a console through unencrypted data streams. We'll have to do some more investigation to see if there is a way to support anything like this in the future.
    Ok thanks. Re transmitting the in game nicknames, you must have a different agreement as other racing simulator providers on console are doing this in their telemetry feeds which are unencrypted.
    i wonder if their restriction relates to sending any information regarding the XB1/PS4 user account on the console, i could understand that. I wouldnt have thought there would be any restriction on sending a custom driver name that the user has been asked to specify for use in the game.
