Boomslang:

Also, is it possible to use your plugin on SF Rush 2049 special edition?  I know it works on the regular Rush 2049, but I can't seem to get it to work with the special edition.  I saw a YouTube video from a few years ago using your plugin with the special edition but it is no longer listed in the GUI.  Any help would be appreciated!  I have a rush 2049 special edition cabinet that I have converted with A PWM2Happ board and njz3 software, and I really wanna get this game working since it was the original game in the cab.

Thanks!

It seems Rave Racer is no longer working with FFB Plugin. The game was renamed in MAME from raveracw to raverace since version 0.242,  two months ago.
Same happens with Ace Driver, changed from acedrvrw to acedrive.
Same happens with Ace Driver: Victory Lap, changed from victlapw to victlap

Check mameinfo file cause in some cases there have been a redump or change of the file, not just a changename
I think Ace Driver Victory Lap is a change of the rom

Sorry to bother, but was wondering if you saw my last post about rush 2049 special edition?  Does your plugin work with that version of the game?

I've been waiting for someone to complete the Hard Drivin' / Race Drivin' FFB support and it's awesome!  Well done guys!!!

I'm running a Simxperience Accuforce direct drive wheel - I'm planning on using it in a cab to make a replica as the force feedback should be strong enough to replicate that of the original cabinet.

However, there's an issue with the wheel.

It seems to run force twice in the same direction.  So for example, if you oscillate you end up rotating twice in the same direction.  This causes all sorts of funny problems.  The third time, it seems to go the other way.

In the test screen i get this without fail every time.

Setting up the wheel in game causes a lot of issues.  I've tried just about every setting and increased and decreased everything but to no avail.

Anyone got any ideas what i'm doing wrong?  Or is this just a case of these direct drive wheels not being compatible?  I could go out and buy a G27/G29/G920 or similar but it won't be as authentic that way.

Thanks heaps guys and keep up the great work!

-Paul

Yeah try alternative ffb

Direct drive wheels are compatible and indeed work fine

Hey all, just wanted to re-visit this.  I've left the idea on ice - got busy, i'm sure you all know how it is. 

I still have the same problem - whether i choose alternative or standard.

I've also re-installed windows a couple of times since, reinstalled drivers etc.

Today I downloaded the latest plugin update 2.0.0.13 - no change.

The behaviour I am having is:

If I open FFBGui and go into the test section, choose the device, check Alternative FFB (or not, either produces the same output), Click "Constant Pull Left" then I get a rotation of my wheel right.  If I click it again, I get left.  Then if I click left again I get left.  If i click left again, i'll get another left.  If I click Constant Pull Right, I'll get a right, and then if i click Constant Pull RIght again I'll get a left.  Then click Constant Pull Right again I'll get a right.  Then click Constant Pull Left and I'll get a right.  Then click Constant Pull Left and I'll get a left.  It's kind of like it inverts every other time, except on a double of the same way.

As this behaviour has not changed over all this time, I feel I can rule out other software on my PC.  The wheel works flawlessly with any other piece of software I throw at it.

Any ideas of what I could try to adjust this behaviour?

hm no im not sure at all. Ive never encountered this at all with any wheel and ive got or tried and ive got Logitech G27, Logitech G29, Thrustmaster T300RS, Fanatec GT2 and OSW Direct Drive wheel plus many many other users over years have never said this issue.

Is the same issue occuring once in actual games though? and your tests are using FFBPluginGUI.exe and FFB Test?

The FFB Test is set at the same strength level each press

do you have any coding experience at all? You could then play around with the settings directly in visual studio and find what fixes it

Hey Boomslang. I hope all is well. Thank you so much for this plugin. I recently purchased a g29 and it makes the experience that much more fun. Quick question. I started testing the wheel in Demul and keep getting the "IDirectInputDevice8 CreateEffect FAILED" error, which I believe is caused whenever you have a racing wheel installed. After doing some digging, it appears your plugin 2.1 update should have fixed it (if I read the update notes correctly). I've installed the latest plugin in my demul directory and the force feedback does work (i.e. for games like ATV) but unfortunately the error remains. I've tested in Demul version 111117, 180816 & 180428 and no go. Any suggestions are greatly appreciated. Thank you

Update: Sorry, I didn't realize that specific settings was in the MISC. section. This worked great thanks a bunch.

Side note: Any chance in the future on getting FFB support for Clubkart Europeon, 18 Wheeler, Wild Riders, and Ferrarri F355? Thanks

Struggling to get FFB working in Tokyo Cop. I have the FFB files placed in F:\Teknoparrot\tokyocop-gaelco-3d\tokyocop (Gaelco 3D)\home\joc2001\joc2001\salidas
Is that where they need to be saved? Thanks

No.

Its a linux game so like always you need to install plugin differently for them.

Opengl32 and sdl2.dll goes to TeknoParrot folder inside main TeknoParrot folder. Will have Budgieloader.exe in there. Everything else goes to elf folder except opengl32.dll. You will also need sdl2.dll in elf folder too (so both places)

Thanks for clarifying. I'll test it out. Also, a side note FYI. For some weird reason, I can't get Virtua Racing MAME FFB to work. I tried it on the latest version, 243 & 239 and no go. All the other MAME games I tested worked. Just not Virtua Racing.
