Buttkicker & NGX

Recommended Posts

Guest Mik75
What settings are you guys using on the Buttkicker for flying the NGX? Currently I'm using the settings recommended in the documentation for games that is both low and high filters enabled and the high frequency filter set to 40.

 

Subsonic filter off, high cut is on, cutoff frequency ~80 Hz

Just received this today, good bit of kit, would anyone else mind sharing their settings ? I am finding it a bit difficult to set up so you just feel it when you activate speed brakes or gear down.

Thanks Paul

Using the settings mentioned above by Mik75 I feel the speedbrakes clearly and the gear at least to some extent but what I almost like most is how I feel the bumps when taxing and also how the engines come alive during startup. That to me really makes it feel like I would actually be there for real.

 

This product is the best investment I did for my simming experience in a long time!

Yes I agree, do you have yours setup so you can feel the vibrations at all times when you are flying even when you don't use the speed rakes ? I can't make my mind up..........

Be aware guys it (buttkicker) will not work with USB digital headset as this cuts out the sound card. You need the standard mic and headphone jacks, if you want to use a headset and buttkicker

I think I read there's a way to fix that using some small utility/application making the Buttkicker work just fine also with usb headsets.

If you ordered from Simware it will only take a couple of days before you have it and I'm pretty sure that you'll like it the same way most of us do.

 

Write a few lines here what you think once you've got it and tried it out.

Well doing my first flight with this . Cant really deside how high the volume should be but i have it on low right now - feels a bit more realistic.

 

The low filter button is not touch but the high is on and freq is about 70-80.

 

How high do you have the volume ? 

 

PS! i have tried to plug the kicker to the ampflier twice as i can not see + or - on the plug. cant feel any difference i guess.

 

Other than that i will get use to the rumble in air i guess :-)

Well having spending 2 weeks or so flying with this i still need to tweak this equipment but with the enhancement sound made by steve inwood its getting better and better. I do want the feeling of touchdown to be more explosive but over all this is a god buy (8/10)

Hi Michael,

 

5.1 speaker set connecting the buttkicker not to the orange subwoofer or center speaker output soundcard, but connecting to the front speaker output soundcard worked better for me!!

I hope this works for you too!

Does the buttkicker work with other aircraft like the PMDG 747?

It works with every plane and every game you play like first person shooters you feel the explosions in your chair!!

Cool is there a certain type of chair you have to have? I have a dining room chair with 4 legs, will it work?

As long as the leg of the chair is not more than say 2" in diameter, it should accept the clamp ok.

The ButtKicker Gamer "Easy Clamp™":

Diameter Range: 26 - 35mm

Exposed Length of post needed (height of "Easy Clamp"): 42mm

 

How would I connect it to my system. I have a Logitech speakers connected with Optical and a 5.1 surround sound motherboard.

Buttkickers are designed to work off audio inputs. Their main focus is the home theatre market. As far as flight simming goes, I think it shines in GA A/C (single props) the older/louder the better.

Suspect you're going to have to drop the optical connection. I use a audio splice, one for the buttkicker and the other for my speakers. Not sure if your logitech system has an audio output to feed the Buttkicker amp.
