Default GAMETRIX KW-908 JETSEAT

Hi guys, i wanna share my experience with new device (at least for me) called GAMETRIX KW-908 JETSEAT. It is made by russians located in Sankt Petersburg. They took massage device and adopt it to the arcade tank game. Then =Andre= took it even further and adopt it to the DCS World.
I think it is now pretty mature device and worth talk about it.
So what we have here:

it looks like massage pad with built in 8 vibro motors (4 for each side left/right located 4 on your seat and 4 on your back) made from synthetic leather controlled by USB controller (also an option to use audio input but it less actual in DCS). I put it on my chair - plug it in - run SW called iba Effects - run DCS and.... speechless.
I never had experience with FF joystick but FF on your body is amazing.
When you taxi you can feel concrete plates junctions, you don't have look on AoA you can feel it, air brake on - vibrate your back. Guns - is amazing.
The list of effects supported by now you can find here: http://sim-pit.blogspot.ru/p/english.html

WEB Shop:http://shop.gametrix.ru/vibronakidki.html

all credits for the SW to =Andre= He did amazing job - want to thank him!

So someone figured out how to make software for DCS World that the SimVibe guys said was too much trouble?

It would be nice if we could get this software to work with our buttkickers and other similar LFE shaker devices, are there any prospects for this Andre, or are you teamed up exclusively with the guys who make this vibration pad? A lot of us already own vibration devices that are hooked up to our simpits, but the vibrations use audio only and are lackluster. I would pay for the software if you added support to output an audio signal instead of USB.

This seems like it could quickly become an expensive paperweight if you purchase it + the massage device and it is never updated to include full functionality for one of the most popular planes like the A-10C, new planes as they come out such as the F/A-18, or when an ED patch breaks the functionality and the software itself is not patched in turn because the developer has moved on.

Not to mention draping the massage device over a nicely built simpit would throw off the look; kind of out of place, it would be a lot of work to disassemble it and integrate it into my existing chair and then worry about the aforementioned software going out of date.

This time just fixed user interface issues. The effects are untouched.
