    Default Small Things Amuse

    After a 3 year stint as a chair ornament my Buttkicker is now back in action. No I am not talking about the other half who looks at the credit card card statements, I mean the item that clamps onto the computer chair. It causes one to jerk around spasmodically whilst grimly hanging on to the joystick in rough synchronisation with the PC sound system. Anyone else got one of these? They are sort of a lazy man's force feedback device. It does work with FS 2.

    Its next on my list. I'm hopeful it will add another level of realism in VR. What sort of vibes does it provide? Engine rumble, tyres on tarmac, landing bump?

    Well I think it worked better with FSX but with FS2 it does rattle away quite nicely. The B24 in FSX used to get reaction from landing and other thuds as well as engine sounds.

    I suppose even a bit of rattle/vibe adds to the aliveness of the machinery. Are you hooked up to the bass frequencies via sound output or are you taking physics output using something like SimVibe?

    It is via the sound output bass frequencies. I have a split plug into my sound card. I think the plane sounds are deeper in FSX especially with some of the add ons like my B24. That plane really rumbles along.
