    Win11 does not support FFB anymore!?

    Moin comrades,

    Windows 11 does not support FFB anymore?!

    https://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/...8-7639febb3e8a

    How do FFB joysticks behave then, does FFB work under Win11, especially the MS Sidewinder FFB2?

    Are there any experiences/solutions?
    Gruß Amarok

    Does anyone use Win11 with an FFB-Joystick, specifically even a Miscrosoft Sidewinder FFB2, and can report anything about the FFB?

    That would be very helpful. Thanks in advance.

    Hi Amarok,

    I plugged in my MSFFB2 Sidewinder2 stick and it works normally in Windows 11.

    After ensuring that Windows 11 "sees" the stick in "Set up USB Controllers", assign the axis normally in the ingame Controls GUI (or alternatively the Joystick Wizard), please ensure that your conf.ini file in 1C Softclub has the following lines:

    [rts_joystick]
    FF=1

    Be sure to hit "Save" before exiting conf.ini

    If FF=0 then forcefeedback will not be activated ingame.

    Let me know how things turn out

    Moin Snapper,

    good to read, that forcefeedback works normally with SWFFB2 under Win11!

    Actually I use Win10 64bit, but in near future comes Win11.

    Ah, good.

    So you already know all about my Words of Wisdom above.

    I found the transition from Win 10 64-bit to Win 11 to be painless. Assigning output (speakers/headphones) and input (microphones) can be a bit cludgy when dealing with multiple software (Zoom, Microsoft Teams, Teamspeak, etc etc) and devices (sound system speakers, laptop speakers, AirPods, plug in Apple earplugs, etc etc)…but most players don’t need to switch around this crap on a daily basis anyway.

    Keep us posted on how you do with Win 11.

    Unfortunately, MS Sidewinder FFB2, by modern standards, cannot be considered a full-fledged FFB.
    Engines are too weak. But the main thing is that they can only give some effects, but do not fully load the joystick depending on the oncoming flow (speed), or its disruption, or the release of mechanization, etc.
    Therefore, the operation of MS Sidewinder FFB2 depends more on the correct driver for a specific operating system, and not so much on the simulator itself. IMHO
