    Re: Microsoft Joystick FFB Effects

    hi

    I edited the FFB files 2 years ago because I had problems with the Microsoft joystick at the time. I couldn't steer the plane properly because the efects were far too strong, so the joystick was too stiff, and the efects were also too strong when shooting. That's why I toned down some effects so that joystick guidance is smooth. I tested the whole thing on the 109 e4. I uploaded the FFB files maybe someone likes them

    Re: Microsoft Joystick FFB Effects

    Hi Schachmatt
    i use a MS FFB and have tried various versions of FFB file over the years (think Lewis did some great work) so will give yours a go.

    I only fly the Allied planes and the FFB is helpful for the flutter before a stall.
    From memory I think the 109 cannon effects were oddly linked to the "shake" files and that was always the one that made everything vibrate badly.
    Think one solution was to rename it from the autocannon file or dial down.

    Your edit may have done same thing.

    Win10 x64, i5-10600K CPU @ 4.1GHz, ASUS RTX 3060Ti 8GB, 32GB(DDR4 3600MHz XMP1) RAM, Dell 2560x1440 27" 165hz, Microsoft FFB2, Edtracker(wireless).
    Nvidia driver version: 537.58

    Hi,

    I also use a Microsoft Sidewinder ForceFeedback 2 joystick.
    I think the problem with too strong shaking when the Bf 109 cannons were shooting was solved in 5.027 about two years ago - https://theairtacticalassaultgroup.c...ad.php?t=35341.
    I don't fly German planes much but I think the effect in Bf 109s is much weaker and more realistic now than it was before.
    I use the game settings, I don't have any FFB mod.

    Re: Microsoft Joystick FFB Effects

    I've been using modified FFB files since back in IL2 1946. I have a few edits downloaded over the years, though I can't recall which I'm using , but it is required for improved MS FFB use. I've never had another stick and have no thoughts of ever changing it. I've 2 spare FFB and 2 non FFB Sidewinders for parts - when needed. But after more than 25 years use it looks like my 1st will outlast me.

    I have two MS FFB's... only issue is the pots on the buttons will eventually wear out.

    But you can find replacements.

    I experimented a bit. I replaced my shake.ffe file with the original file from the latest patch, now it feels good...Just like in iL2 Battle of Stalingrad with 60% strength

    I also have an ffb device, but it does not work in 'Cliffs of Dover Blitz' (in dcs, il-2 everything is fine), tell me how this can be fixed? What are these files, where should I save them? maybe there are instructions somewhere?

    What FFB stick do you have? I used the Microsoft Sidewinder FFB 2 and it works in CloD.

    Check your conf.ini. Mine has this:
    Code:
    [rts_joystick]
    FF=1
    The files that are the original subject of this post are just adjusted effects they won't help if you have no feedback.

    Look in your CloD install directory for the effects files. Effects files have file extension .ffe.
    ...\steamapps\common\IL-2 Sturmovik Cliffs of Dover Blitz\parts\core\FF

    Works in simulators:
    DCS, War Thunder, IL-2 Sturmovik: Battle of Stalingrad.



    How to enable FFB in 'Cliffs of Dover'?

    You can test the effects files (.ffe) outside of the game with Microsoft's Force Editor (fedit.exe). You can find it here https://theairtacticalassaultgroup.c...l=1#post202287

    You can use the program the strength or weaken the effect or change their characteristics. First you just want to see if the effect plays and you feel it on your stick.

    Thanks for your participation,
    I managed to get FFB effects, but...
    the only thing that worked adequately was the recoil when firing.
    Unfortunately, the handle does not get heavier as the speed increases and, on the contrary, does not vibrate when the flow begins to break down...
    and therefore uninformative. Although this is implemented in hardware in my joystick
    I compare it with modern simulators, you can watch the video yourself in the FBB topic.

    You can find out in more detail what did and how they connected it?
    How does Joy behave and what effects, do you use in online battles or only in missions?
