SimShaker for DCS World Sound Mode Expansion - Discussion


Recommended Posts

Are using a separate sound card for the SimShaker Sound Module to direct the special sound effect files to? By using 2 sound cards, normal DCS sounds go to your speaker system that is being fed by your primary sound card. The special effects vibration files are then directed by the SimShaker module to the second sound card. It is also a good idea to have a power amp for the bass shakers that includes a bass frequency filter (crossover frequency adjustment) that you can adjust to cut-off certain frequencies from going to the bass shakers.

 

The buttkicker has an amp with high low cutoffs already. I am using the sound card on the motherboard which is supposed to be pretty good. Also the Voicemeeter software is supposed to allow virtual soundcards to split the sound but I cant get it to work properly either.

Thanks for the new experience Andre and f4l0 - just got my SimShaker Sound Module. Just a hint to whoever's using FC3 based mods - they work with the default profile (do not support customization

Awesome its now opening, thanks    

I'm confused as to what the 6 (5.1) channel option is used for?  This is confusing to explain what I mean.  For example, In a car simulator you can have a crash in the rear right of the car and only t

I have no experience with Voicemeeter, so I can't offer any advice on that issue. I will be using a separate external USB sound card ($15) solely for feeds from the SimShaker Sound Module directly to my bass shaker.

ya I may have to do the same. The voices causing vibration in TS or Discord is annoying.

Have a look at this thread, which hopefully might be of some assistance.

I've set up my software pretty much as explained and it seems to be working fine. I'm not using SRS so I can't test that at this time.

 

 

Cheers

SimShaker Wings is not for DCS.

Please refer to this guide https://simshaker.com/guides/cases/

 

I ordered the Simshaker sound module and I have the Aviator module downloaded as well.

 

Also I have the same issue as the other user about the F18 and F16 afterburner effect being very subtle or even nothing at all when in cockpit view. If I go to external view behind the plane then the effect is very strong. The F14 afterburner effect has a very strong feel in the cockpit though.

I think that indicates you have got your bass-shaker driven rather by the game sound than by SimShaker Sound Module due to some kind of misconfiguration.

I freaking love this program. I’ve got one bass shaker under my seat (custom built ejector seat thing) and will soon be adding another but kicker to the back board of the seat and a third one to the pedal box, when I get to a good point in my pit build I’ll put a link here. Basically this program has revolutionised dcs for me, so thank you a million times to the creators

 

I have one question. I’ve been getting momentary pauses when I play the game, I think it’s a dcs thing cause it’s only started in the last 2 updates. I have another thread about that so don’t worry im not about to start here, I just wanted to check if anyone has had any lag/pause/freeze issues while using ssa and the module?

 

Just thought I’d put a feeler out there and see

 

And also.

 

If you are thinking about getting this program and a bass shaker for your dcs setup

 

You absolutely should.

First test run tonight with the Buttkicker and it was amazing. Great easy to use program combined with SS for Aviators. Many thanks lads for the effort gone into this. Well worth it for anyone considering it. Anyone out there keen on sharing their settings now.

Maybe that's due to some Windows recent update. I don't get this error at my PC.

Either way, I think that's not mission critical error wich do not affect the performance. Windows returned some unexpected result about your PC network interfaces. SimShaker Sound Module used a workaround and continued to work.

Hi Andre, software just updated, donI need to re enter my serial number? Also, seems to have reset all my effects to 50%...... anyway to retrieve my old settings please?if not, that’s a pain and perhaps you should add an option for users to save their settings before an auto update...?

 

Thanks

Hi Mark,

in general, there is no need to register SimShaker Sound Module again ufter update.

I'm not responsible for SimShaker for Aviators settings. It was recommended by f4l0 in SimShaker for Aviators thread plenty of times to make the backup (export) of the settings. SimShaker for Aviators by f4l0 already features exporting settings in the File menu.

The error has accelerated, lol. Now sound module quits about 10 minutes into the game and if I try to close and restart it my screen is taken over by "Oops! Something's got wrong at UDP send: Only one usage of each socket address ", etc. I think it has gone into demo mode.

 

Same error as listed above in sartzsche' post.

 

Edit: What I say taken over, I mean just that. A thousand or more little "Oops" screns are plastered everywhere.

Further Edit: It does not say that it is in demo mode but I cannot get more than 10 minutes out of it.
