    As the title suggests I'm trying to find a way of emulating the Truck NC with "Operate my device" in TTHome.
    I personally see no real point in using TTHome other than "Update my device" to get mapshare, quickfix etc (which TTHome already does), but TTHome "Operate my device" is also needed to set the device code to protect your TT.
    So maybe someone is interested...

    What I did so far:
    Managed to create a folder in the user directory of TTHome for the necessary .chk files and the .dll.
    Managed to get TTHome to accept the modified files if a Truck NC is on the device.
    Changing settings and all the other things is possible, but there are a few big drawbacks:
    As there are no emulation files available I had to cheat and used the data*.chk files from the 8.351 NC together with a modified .dll.
    So basically TTHome gets a device with the Truck NC and thinks it is the 8.351.
    For that reason no truck-related functions are available.

    If there is interest I will upload the files for testing purposes.
    What I would need is to find someone with good coding/programming skills to have a look at the .dll files used for the emulation in TTHome to find out how exactly they access the .chk files.
    It is not possible to exchange the .chk files from one NC to the other as they are responsible for the menu and "look" of the device.
    Only the data.chk and data_3d.chk seem to be of interest - not 100% sure what the 3D does but the data.chk contains all the menu items and how the menu works. I tested that by trial and error through replacing all .chk files one by one.
    Goal would be to creat new .dll for the 8.398 .chk files so that all device functions can be used in the emulation.
    So if you think you are a good coder/programmer and you're up for a challenge please contact me!
