      Hi All, We created an Amazon store that's pretty basic and currently only for U.S. shoppers. If you purchase something from it and then other items through Amazon, we make a small commission. It won't cost anymore than Amazon normally does but will help support our show and website and would be greatly appreciated !

  1. SimVibe Alternatives?

    Why not do both Chassis and Extensions, you can use Chassis with your second soundcard and use your onboard sound for Extensions. Then simply connect a external soundcard for your sounds, like engine, tires, wind etc... I have been using this technique for a few years and you get the best of both. If you only want to use "the seat" in Extension mode for now that is fine. I use 2 Dayton 150 watt amps for Chassis mode connected to 4 Aura shakers. Then 2 buttkicker gamer 2's on Extension, along with one more Dayton 150 watt on a single Aura shaker on Extension as well. So I use 7 shakers on 5 amps. I also purchased a 5 channel Emotiva in which I am not using ATM. As far as using "engine vibrations and kerb vibrations and bumps", those are basic settings in SimVibe that really don't require to much tweaking at all. I would suggest most folks over cook there settings, with SimVibe, less really is more.
  2. SimVibe Alternatives?

    Save your drivel boy, if you are half the sim racer that you think you are, you would understand SimVibe is the standard in Sim racing. Tell you what boy! why not drop over to the iRacing forums and post the same thread you have here. I can't believe I am even responding to you here, you are such an amateur it exudes from every post you make. I built my first PC in the early 90's, at 58 years of age I am not your son, boy! I have lost count on how many PC's I have built over the years. You are not in IT, I can spot a fake like you a mile away, boy! You look to be about 21 or 22 years old? regardless, all of your posts here say rookie sim racer, rookie gamer and big whiner. You cry about how poorly you were treated by Sim Experience and you offer to all that read your turdflume thread not to deal with those guys. Berney and all the guys at SimExperience are successful because of their support, but you cried the very second you couldn't figure out how to work SimVibe, Berney is a great guy but obviously you whined and whined and he is all to glad to be done with chumps like you. Do us all a favor boy, move on, you are just a rookie racer and you will never be ready for prime time. But do not dis Berney here, he is one of the good guys, you boy are not!
  3. Simvibe with OSW issues

    I looked at other questions you have on this site and it seems like it is much more then SimVibe causing your problems. It is possible you might have a conflict with other software. The biggest problem I see people having in SimVibe are issues with not setting the correct sound card to either chassis or extension modes. e.g. using a internal sound card for both modes, or using internal sound card for SimVibe and sound. What I found works very good is to use the onboard sound for extensions and then I added a soundcard for chassis mode. Then for my sound, engines, tires, other cars etc ... I use an external USB soundcard. I connect that directly from my 7.1 sound system to my PC and it is used only for sound, while the other two internal cards work with SimVibe.

    What? and you say you have 25 years in IT? ROTFLMFAO. Your BS is so hard to take, I think you don't have a clue about SimVibe, although you want to sound like an expert, you are most certainly not.

    Mr Late, was banned from iRacing because he thought he was smarter then everyone else at iRacing, including Bernie at Sim Experience. I invited Berney to come over to a sim racing web site, to inform people that wanted to learn how SimVibe works. To Berney's credit, he took time out of his busy schedule and had several great discussions. As usual mr late shows up and starts beaking off to Berney, the creator of SimVibe. mr late is trying to tell Berney that he is wrong and mr late is right. Several people tried telling mr late, he had no clue what he was talking about, which he didn't. Berney is a class act and rather then stay and argue over and over, which is something mr late has done, over and over, Berney just left that web site and communicates with serious minded sim racers at iRacing, well, low and behold, who shows up? Yes, mr late (aka Rodney) and he proceeds to make a huge ass of himself. Not only does mr late embarrass himself but he is attracting the attention of guys that build $50,000 rigs, that don't sit around and talk about how good they are like mr late does. No, these guys are the real deal. Soon the staff at iRacing told mr late to cool it, but no, he did not. To me it is hilarious when people start bullshiting others and think they are smarter then the rest of us. Like the OP of this thread and mr late. mr late talks the talk, but no one has ever seen this world setting sim rig he keeps talking about. How do I know all this, I made the mistake of sharing my knowledge with him and had the bad fortune of listening to his BS. So if Sim Experience loses the OP of this thread and mr late, I'd say it was a win, win for Sim Experience. If anyone is interested in setting up SimVibe, I would be most happy to share.

    I've dealt with the good folks Sim Experience for many years, not only do they make quality products but their custom service is second to none. I am going on 8 years at iRacing and have known Berney and the gang as long. The OP is asking for perspective customers to avoid Sim Experience at all costs. When I read this kind of drivel it tells me one thing, that the OP needs to sharpen up his negotiation and communication skills. The one thing that pisses companies off more then anything is people that start demanding things when they aren't answered in 10 minutes time. Anyone that haven't dealt with Berney and the gang and want to run the best shaker software in all of sim racing, then do contact Sim Experience, SimVibe is the industry standard. I run 5 aura shakers, 2 buttkicker gamer 2's all under 5 shaker amps. The good folks at Sim Experience make a great manual that anyone can follow, well, almost anyone. BTW, OP, share your story!
  7. Thank you Darin for your timely assistance getting my SimVibe back up and running. I reformatted my PC and after re-installing a plethora of racing games and necessary software it came time to re-install SimVibe. To my surprise my Sim Commander 3 couldn't contact the server to validate my license. With a league race on Saturday at iRacing it wasn't looking like I would get SimVibe running in time. I can't race without it anymore. Then to boot I was having trouble updating my account at sim experience. A quick email to them and Darin responded almost immediately, I explained my problem and within 30 minutes or so I had Sim Commander 4 and SimVibe up and running. Awesome service from Darin, as in the past dealings with Darin, he is committed to our passion of sim racing. Thank you bud! Darren
  8. I started sim racing in 1979 and always loved racing in most forms. I am going on 5 years at iRacing in the Road race side. I won my division a couple years ago and iRacing certainly has it share of ramrods, no doubt. At times I get very frustrated at the service, so my rig sits for a few months at a time. Summer time I rarely touch my rig, that's the time to be outside. I reserve most of my racing for the colder months, that way I still have fun when I do fire up the rig.
  9. Mommies New Black 8020 Rig

    You need to buy hubby a welder for Christmas or his birthday, whichever comes first. That way you can design all your ideas and have him weld them up for you. I bought a welder a year and a half ago, if I can weld anyone can. On sale I got a decent one for $250 Cnd, thats like $150 US
  10. SASKCHAUCH'S Rseat rs1 Rig

    I was like you a few years ago, well as far as console play goes. I had a xbox and a PS3, single screen. A person is very limited by console racing, sure there are some decent games that are fun for them. Until I tried iRacing and seen what a difference in realism. A downside of course is commitment, iRacing has a steep learning curve and for most people a good deal of seat time is required. On a positive note the PC affords a lot better cockpit options, gauges, button boxes and triple screens. Perhaps when your kids get older you might find a couple minutes for yourself. Are you kids going to play hockey? Of course they will eh?
  11. SASKCHAUCH'S Rseat rs1 Rig

    Great start to your rig career Saskchauck, any chance you're from Saskatchewan? Also Sask, don't worry, before you know it your kids will be grown. I have 2 boys, 19 years and 26 years, still like em too. (lol)
  12. Mommies New Black 8020 Rig

    Very nice Bailey, I loved watching your progression over the years and the solid choices you have made in design. You selected some of the best components available to you. Between your hubby's handi work and your work you have made a rig that practically anyone would want. Kudo's on a fine job.
  13. Nice rig Mcunkle, they are as much fun building them as they are racing. Good luck and have fun.
  14. Bodin load cell mod

    Hi John, congratulations on a remarkable product. You have invested a lot of time, energy and money on this mod. I remember when you started on your project, it has to be dam near a year? Aside from all the help you offer in the iRacing forum, actually racing and family life I don't know how you did it. I know you do not have a big profit margin on your mod. For the folks that don't know John he works tirelessly for free helping other iRacers on the iRacing forum. From getting started to setting up triple screens, Johns work benefits the whole sim racing community and we are all richer because of him. Kudos to a fine brake modification John.
