PSX Vibrate Released
« on: Tue, 29 May 2018 11:50 »
All,

As some of you may have seen on the 'networkers' forum I have been developing a module to drive buttkickers, base shakers, earthquakes, and other types of sound driven transducers.

Thanks to Chris K, Britjet, Jon Boe, Jun, Gary, Farrokh and the Simfest crew for allowing me to jiggle their bottoms for beta testing.

Features

Speed brake Rumble (when speed brake deployed in flight)
Wheel Scrub, more than 20 degrees of tiller over 20 knots
Gear Up and Down Vibrations
RB211 Sound adds a flight vibration at high EPR settings
Turbulence is my favourite, when PSX is flying through turbulent air and when below FL100 with clouds varying levels of turbulence effects are played
Cargo Door when the fwd cargo door shuts
Taxi rolling ground fades in up to 20 kts and speeds up going down the runway
Takeoff rolling ground comes in at 60-70kts to add more rumble on take off
Touchdown - leave at max volume and it slightly adjusts depending on touchdown rate
Starter adds vibrations during the engine start sequence.
Leading Edge flap retraction rumble

Requires

Microsoft Visual C++2013 Redistributable(x64)

Download Link

https://www.dropbox.com/s/0pc9e4a89qi6cwe/PSXVibrate.msi?dl=0

Instructions

1) Run installer

2) Set the PSX Server IP and Port, as well as the external sim router IP and restart.

3) Adjust the levels of the sounds to match your setup.

We also recommend running the Vibrate Module on a machine running PSX with default Airframe/Engine grounds enabled but rename the tire.wav file in audio/basics folder of PSX and feeding this through the same soundcard as the vibrators.

As always www.psxaddons.com for more information.

Cheers
Gary

Thanks Gary,
I've wanting something like this, especially a more defined speedbrake rumble. Thank You.

Sorry to report that I can not get it running, just have a crash issue on Windows 7.
It ran on one of my Windows 10 machines, working fine, but that is not the one with the PSX audio.

Greg,

It worked here on Windows 8.1 and 10.

I would imagine its because Windows 7 doesn't have the .net 4.5.1 runtime installed.

Try downloading and installing from https://www.microsoft.com/en-gb/download/details.aspx?id=40779

If that doesn't work, send me a message on FB messenger and I can remote in and have a look.

Cheers
G

The issue was either the C++ 2012/2013/2015 Runtimes missing..

We installed all 3 x86 and x64 and all is good...

Awesome piece of kit.
The sounds are a really fantastic enhancement to PSX's already great sound.
Turns out the cargo door closing is my favorite. :)

Hi Gary

Do we use PSX externalsim with Xplane?

Cheers,

Could you also show your icon here in this thread so that we curious Mac users can enjoy the joke as well? :-)

What a pity.
Everything  is running with xplane except that the sounds will constantly play  when you leave the ground.

Cheers,

Thierry

Thierry,

I still have on my todo list to move from the PSX.ExternalSim Link to Native PSX variables as we discussed with Hardy on another thread.

Unfortunately this is still on the todo list, it can of course be moved up the list for a promise of beer :-)

Cheers
Gary
