Used to have the original Buttkicker … long time ago, it worked OK, but for some reason or another I sold it after seeing the newer version and how much more refined it seemed … never got round to getting another one though, but considering one again, mainly to be used for Flight Simulation, don’t watch movies on my PC set up, but music sometimes with headphones.
My gaming seat has become a complex beast now with on chair HOTAS and side Mouse and Razor game keyboard pad “thingymajig gadjet” , all hooked up to an on-chair USB hub that means I can switch PC’s and still have same HOTAS/ mouse/gamepad set up on each with just one USB lead from the seats hub … I love it
If I did add the Buttkicker 2, could easily cable tie its seat connecting cable with the seats USB hub one to make a sort of local one connect point to the seat.
But I guess, the Buttkicker rattling and shaking of chair might not be very good in FPS shooters like ARMA3 … with mouse pad on chair now especially, trying to aim with mouse pad shaking, LOL … have a look at my chair to see what I mean please …
It really has been a long time since I used my first gen Buttkicker, would like to hear from users of the V2 current version and any thoughts for my situation and choice of sims … Flight Sim and maybe a few driving/racing games … occasional use with music only.
Was there not something about voice in games triggering it too, or has V2 worked around that???
Its still quite expensive … and its not something talked about much any-more, hence my concern it would be a gimmick I’d try and dump again soon … even with the more modern V2 version.
