DriveVibe - Body Shaker 0.9

Body Shaker - Simulate your seat

  1. PanaRace970
    Get 2 body shakers, an amp, connect them up like regular speakers to the amp and connect the amp to the rear speaker output of your sound card (with regular speakers as front speakers). Use speaker fill on the sound panel to get the game sound also to the body speakers, good e.g. for engine vibes and some sound events. Now also run the provided app to get your seat vibrating with gear shifts and when driving over a curb.

    YouTube: See how it works in simulation


    Important: This is not production app fitting all environments. I provide the source code. If it doesn't work for you and you have no idea about programming, sorry. Otherwise: Easiest migth be to get fmod package for development (free) and replace the generate_tone source in the example. Also this is my testing app to look at various values and I didn't clean it up.

    Works very simply with little to no configuration required. Best of all it is free and is a great way to improve immersion

    Loving this so far, and it can only get better.
    This has transformed my driving rig playing pcars in VR.

    Pretty good. It worked but vibration didn't feel natural for most parts. For example with curb, even you are not moving while on top of it, it still vibrates a lot. Some cars had very much low rpm vibration but none on mid-top, RUF CTR felt very weird. This has potential though :)
