SimShaker - Wheels version 1.4 published

Hi guys,
new in this version:
  • added G-forces effects for all supported titles (see the picture below);
  • added missed support for Project CARS 32 bit version;
  • some errors fixed.
Since new G-forces FXs may strongly interfere with some other FXs, by default they are disabled. To enable the FXs please set their gain sliders at about 40 - 50% values. I suggest you will want to disable some other FXs to not turn them all into a mash ;)

I recommend to update the release version of SSW up to 1.4 till the end of the month.
If the application wasn't updated automatically, please select it in Windows Control Panel - > Programs and Features and click on Update Information URL, as shown on the picture below.
Or you can re-install the application.

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year guys!
Have fun with SimShaker in the New Sim Year ;)

Attention Mr.Edward Doherty

Dear Ed,
I've received your message that you didn't get answer from me in December 2016.
I've made another 3 attempts to deliver my answer to you through e-mail, using different mail service providers. But I don't receive confirmation that you received any of my 3 e-mails. I suggest there may be something wrong with your e-mail provider.

Communications with my customers are valuable for me.
Since I don't think any other way to communicate with you, having just your e-mail address, would you please contact me via our Help Desk, my e-shop, forums, Facebook, e-mail or any other appropriate way?

Kind regards,
Andre

SimShaker - Wheels (SSW) is about to be released

Question: What are main differences between beta and released SSW variants?

Answer: Released SSW will be a separate piece of software. It will be considered as a stable version and will be updated much less often than beta SSW. Both variants will have common settings storage. Beta version looks for updates before it starts, released version will look for updates in the background.

Find more details in RaceDepartment forum thread.

Please use SimShaker - Wheels instead of SimShaker '3 in 1' variant

SimShaker '3 in 1' variant is deleted from our Downloads page.

SimShaker for DCS World and Falcon BMS update 1.1.1.48

Hi guys, it's time to update!
In version 1.1.1.48:
  • LoGetAircraftDrawArgumentValue(n) function is used, to provide both Integrity Check safety and the full set of effects. Currently the function is supported in DCS World public Release, Steam, open Beta and open Alpha versions;
  • DCS World script management is simplified, IC Safe Mode switch is not needed  any more;
  • DCS BS2 Ka-50 gun effect improved;
This SimShaker version was refactored to work with a new DC Export API function, which is available since DCS World versions 1.5.4.56500 and 2.0.3.56503, and later. That let us to keep effects working in MP mode as well as in SP mode. If you are going to use some old verisons of DCS World, please skip this SimShaker update.
You can also revert back to a previous SimShaker version after update via Control Panel -> Programms and Features - > Change.
While using in MP mode, SimShaker version 1.1.1.48 requires Player's Export to be allowed on the server.

Have a great time with SimShaker!

SimShaker '3 in 1' version 2.14 update

Hi pilots,
I've updated SimShaker '3 in 1' with the latest module for DCS World and Falcon BMS.

Since SimShaker for DCS World usually is updated far ahead of SimShaker '3 in 1', I switched off auto start of the module for DCS World. It makes both versions of SimShaker compatible and you can keep their launchers running simultaneously.

I've changed the color of SimShaker '3 in 1' icon for better navigation and your convenience as well.

In the future I'd like to replace the module for DCS World here with a module for some motor sport sim.
