DriveVibe - Body Shaker 1.0

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.

    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.

    Hallo, ich rede mal deutsch, denke mal du verstehst das :)
    Ich hab ein Problem. Ich manage den output für mein Headset (USB) und die Bass shaker (3,5 Klinke) über das tool Voicemeeter. Das funktioniert auch soweit. Ich habe aber stark knackende Geräusche im Headset auf einigen Tonlagen und gerade stark beim Schaltvorgang. Hast du da vielleich eine Lösung.

    Ansonsten Ist das Feeling schon echt klasse, nur mit dem Knacken leider unfahrbar...

    I had purchased an extra soundcard, bass shakers and an amp, with the intention of setting up a Simvibe system, but I couldn't justify the $90 U.S. for the software, so all that stuff sat in a box gathering dust for over a year! With your (free) app, I now put everything together, and have a better immersive feeling while playing Assetto Corsa...THANKYOU! I actually connected the bass shaker/amp to my motherboard's side (left and right) speaker out ...works great!...AND I can still have my 5.1 surround sound going to the speakers!

    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 :)
