FS Force for FSX is out......try it free!

Recommended Posts

Russell Dirks' has introduced his FSForce for FSX today. I got an email from him since I was a previous user and Beta Team member for the FS9 version.Well, I tried the FSX version (version 2)and it comes with a free demo in the KSEA airspace. All I can say is that it is a superb piece of software that really enhances Force Feedback if that's what you use. Microsoft stopped supporting FF, but Russell took over. The taxi, takeoff roll, flaps, gear, and flight feel are all there and I believe it adds to the realism. The buffeting wind when the gear are dropped is cool, and when you touch down, the concrete is very real.Just thought I'd give everyone a heads up. I'm off to buy it now after trying the Demo.

Do you have a link?I'm interested to try this out, because Force Feedback in FSX with my Logitech Force Feedback joystick is currently pretty horrendous, so horrendous in fact I disabled Force Feedback.-Bryan

Bryan ...I have the Logitech Force 3D Pro, and it is, as you say, "horrendous" with forces.But I also have had one disappointing issue with controlling pitch, and especially on short final, when I find small pitch adjustments and flaring impossible.Did the FS Force fix that as well?Also, did you disable Force Feedback and simply use the FS Force utility?Many thanks in advance for the help!John

John I don't know if it fixes that particular problem (maybe should you trim the aircraft before flaring) but I can tell you that landing is now very smooth with my MS Force Feedback2.I just downoladed the demo version and I am very satisfied with this utility.I never heard about it, after 10 years of FS!!That's a very nice surprise.Stan, thanks for the info :-)best regardsDavid

John,You'll need to make sure your Logitech Force Feedback Pro is fully enabled via the Control Panel - Game Controller menu.I've only used the demo version so far, but it's a 1000 percent improvement over what force feedback was before.Before the plane was basically unflyable with force feedback... very hard to control... now it's all smooth :-)Bryan

Glad you all like it. Flight Simulator needs a program like Russell provides.I'm only hoping that Russell continues and gives us a "turbulence feel" like he says he is working on. Then, and only then, will FS Force be the Holy Grail of Force Feedback.I love the program.....and can't imagine flying without it.

Checked out the site. Seems that this tactile system's a pretty complicated solution that is prone to a lot of tweaks and fixes.The user's forum is loaded with questions and inquiries. Maybe I'm wrong, but for the price...it may be more trouble than it's worth. Also looks like there's been some USB issues and board issues. I've only looked at this a little while so I may be over-reacting. FS Force is totally enjoyable and is the price of a decent lunch.
