Any one tried this gismo or know if it works with Pacific Fighters. I saw it on Newegg's sight.You apparently attach it between the sound system woofer and your chair to create a vibration for tactile feedback during game play.

I just googled Buttkicker Gamer, thats the name of it, and got a bunch different sights with info. Its expensive, cheapest I've seen is about $150.00

Now that's an idea, flightsim+Sybian. It can't be said that it would increase realism, but it should certainly make for a more pleasurable gaming experience :P

I did the same thing with these Bass Shakers from Aurora http://www.partsexpress.com/pe/pshowdetl.cfm?&DID=7&Par...%20Shakers%20at%20PE (http://www.partsexpress.com/pe/pshowdetl.cfm?&DID=7&Partnumber=299-027&raid=1&rak=Aura%20Bass%20Shakers%20at%20PE)

You can also find kits on ebay, thats where I got mine. Get them (only if you want to FEEL the guns and engine)!! You will not regret it. It enhances games and music. And as they produce hardly any sound you can use them late in the night with headphones. I have 2 installed in my lazyboy, one in the seat and one in the back powered with a 70 watt subwoofer amp. A very immersive experience indeed.

I spliced the sub out from my sound and hooked it to a speaker bolted to my chair. Then Oleg released the 4.01 patch and I couldn't play IL2/FB/PF/POS anymore... The affect is good though...

I have two of them. One attached to a sofa for movies and one to a chair for gaming. It is MUCH better then the bass shakers and clark transducers(I have owned them in the past). The buttkickers work the best mainly because they vibrate with frequencies that the bass shakers can't give. Definitely worth the $$$$ http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_cool.gif

I got that beat I think.
I got a usb force feedback gamepad and strapped it to my chair. $10.00
Big 'ol 75watt bass kicker from by surround sound system under my chair.

You squint your eyes in a dark room you'd swear you were in an old WWII fighter.

Yea the name is a little corny but wow what an enhancment to gaming or to just watching a movie. Trust me, if you had one of these running while you watched the scene where the ME-109 hits the Spit from the rear in the movie "Dark Blue World" you would be hooked. It will definitely get your attention. Pretty fun stuffhttp://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

Swine, can you tell us more about your experiences with it with Sturmi?

One specific thing: I live in a small apartment with my neighbour on the other side of the wall. I read on the site that it has minimal bass effect or something like that. Basically, do people around you feel the vibs too?

I think this is a product that is easy to knock and make fun of, but I remember when I was looking at TrackIR and my Sturmi mate was going "You'd be crazy to buy that.", so I'm open to new ideas.

I have a MSFFB2 stick and that's great. Body feedback could be cool. Immersion, immersion.

Or a cheaper method: http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/35.gif

There is an old forcefeedback backpack thingy that does the same thing. you can find closeouts for $20. Just rip it to shreds and mount the transducer to your chair.

I have one (not used currently). Its fun but will scare you silly if you get bounced cleanly.

If money is an issue, and you have $20.00 to spend on rumble effects, just go to walmart and buy a usb rumble FFB gamepad.
I use this:
http://www.saitekusa.com/usa/images/product/pcp/p2500.jpg

Strap it to the arm of your chair.
The Rumble effect shakes the whole chair.
The intesity is scalable in the Saitek software.
Since its programable....and strapped to your chair at your fingertips...
You can use it for HOTAS or map some keys to it.
Mine controls prop pitch, trim and voice coms plus shakes my swivel office chair.

Total cost=$15.99 on sale at Wal-Mart
Immersion on a tight budget.

**This is top of the line stuff though and can be expensive but compared to the other stuff nothing beats it.**

This is new, if you live in an apartment it would be perfect.

For $150, you think it'd be wireless. There is a wireless kit, but it costs another $100 or so.
