Hello Oleg

Have you seen this technology:

http://www.amazon.com/Buttkicker-BK-GR-Gamer/dp/tech-da...5842-3758450?ie=UTF8 (http://www.amazon.com/Buttkicker-BK-GR-Gamer/dp/tech-data/B000AOTLP6/ref=de_a_smtd/002-7505842-3758450?ie=UTF8)

It apparently can provide a much better experience than force feedback on joysticks.

Here is the official description:

"The ButtKicker BK-GR Gamer is awesome for gaming, computer entertainment, and digital music playback. This device works with all computer systems and all gaming consoles, and allows you to feel the low end of sounds without making the room overly loud. With the ButtKicker you can experience powerful bass even while you're using headphones. But what is it and how does it work? The ButtKicker is a small linear motor that reacts to an audio signal sent by an amplifier (the ButtKicker Gamer comes with its own 100-watt amplifier). It is similar to a loudspeaker, but instead of a moving a cone and transferring sound waves through the air, the ButtKicker Gamer is attached to your seat and sends a low frequency sound directly into your body. The effect is amazing.

The ButtKicker Gamer allows you to feel the big bass of your favorite video games without disturbing the neighbors.

Attaching the Gamer is a breeze with the included Easy Clamp. View larger.

The BK-GR comes with everything you need. View larger.
The human body uses two senses to perceive full-range sound. We hear sound, but we also feel it, especially low frequencies. Traditionally it takes big speakers to move a tremendous amount of air for us to feel low frequency sound. That's why so many people love loud concerts -- they want to feel the music as well as hear it. The ButtKicker Gamer reproduces the feeling range of audio in a more direct way than through air movement. The perception is actually better, plus the sound pressure disappears (forget about ringing ears!). For example, when using headphones with the BK-GR, you'll still perceive powerful, musically accurate, concert-level audio, but no one else will hear anything.

The ButtKicker Gamer can take your gaming experience to an awesome level without angering your neighbors. To get the full effect of exciting, action-packed video game titles you'd normally need a huge audio entertainment system that you could pump up to a disturbing-the-peace level. The ButtKicker Gamer solves the problem and adds the big bass sound without the giant, disruptive volume.

Designed to be responsive and aggressive, the ButtKicker Gamer answers the need for both accurate low frequency response and maximum tactile effect. Digital music playback, gaming, and computer entertainment have never been so realistic or intense. Virtually indestructible and maintenance free, with a patented magnetic suspension system and a thermal switch for heat protection, the BK-GR provides tremendous power and longevity. For the workplace or home, the ButtKicker Gamer easily attaches to most standard center post chairs. And with the included "Easy Clamp" mechanism hooking up the ButtKicker Gamer is a breeze. Once the ButtKicker is attached, you'll feel the low end of sound without making the room unbearably loud. Turn down or turn off your subwoofer and you'll still be able to feel all the bass you want. And remember, you'll be able to experience powerful bass even while using headphones, making this an ideal addition to any apartment, dormitory, or condominium."

Here is a comment from a user who posted on SimHQ:

"It actually makes it feel like you are in the airplane. You can feel everything, throttle adjustments, flaps raising and lowering, gear raising and dropping, and the stall buffets are simply amazing! It gets even better in combat as you can feel every round that hits your aircraft. It really scares the hell out of you when you are not expecting it. It bucks the chair when you fire your cannon and the close flak explosions are almost too good to be true. Villicus"

You might consider looking into this. If it is what people are claiming, perhaps you can tune BoB SOW to take advantage of this technology.

Thankyou Buzzsaw

It looks like gadget. I mean it just looks like something I'd try and toss back into the box after a few days.

I'd like to read some reviews from other IL2 users who've bit the bullet, bought and are using one.

You defenitly strapped it on the wrong way http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-very-happy.gif

But it looks like some kind of a subwoofer to me. Not something that needs specific programming.

It is actually not bad.. especially for the rebate price. It adds to immersion IMO.
