    No, it won't work with any other wheel. SimuCube is Firmware and Hardware that serves as the platform exclusively designed for the SimuCube version of the OSW DD-system by Granite Devices. The FW is free to owners of the SimuCube Controller but, not useful for others.

    What would be even better is to have SimCommander available for use with other steering systems. There is much we can do that to add more detail and customization in FFB but, I don't know how useful it would be with mainstream hardware. Such support requires collaboration between the competing manufacturers and that is very unlikely to ever happen.

    There Must be a Major FW difference between different wheel makers... Im really wondering How Much More Feel I can put in the Fanatec v2.5... the FFB feels Very Alive and Brilliant... Much more Feel than i get with Pcars2!!! also using Buttkickers with Regular Audio (No Sim Vibe) just plugged into My Astro A40 Mix amp the Rumble Strip, Curb and Bump feel is Thunderous!!!... I read Sim Vibe users saying that the Buttkicker feel is Not Good or Barely Noticable:eek:

    Normally, SimCommander can provide more detail in FFB than other system but, RR is the only title I'm aware of that doesn't produce them. Even iRacing FFB offers more surface detail with the AccuForce and some telemetry-FFB added. PC1/PC2 and Dirt Rally can all provide ridiculous levels of surface texture and bumps - far more than anyone would desire so it's just a matter of finding one's preference. rF2 / AMS / AC / ACC generally provide very good surface detail and aren't likely to need anything added to the game-FFB in my experience although, front grip-loss & tire-scrub effects are very subtle in ACC with both DD-systems.

    Myself and others have inquired about this issue (RR) in the SimXperience forums but, we have not received any official response as of yet. I will also ask the SimuCube developers to check into it again but, I suspect it may require more people to request further investigation on the part of DD-wheel providers.

    Get the simhub software for your tactile, it's free to use or fully unlocked with small donation. Very configurable for shakers (reportedly more so than simvibe) and also provides loads of other features from dashboards to lap tracking etc. Brilliant software.

    My apologies I've had a quick read from my small phone screen and instead of reading competition, I thought it was about the Cayman?? Stupid me.:eek::eek::eek:. I don't know anything about Porche competition? Sorry for inconvenience or wasting your time.

    Apparently, the Augury Kit OSW that I own is, in fact, Sumucube board which is great. I am willing to try Sumucube software as long as I can go back to MMoS whenever I like?

    Sorry I think you misunderstood me, simhub has nothing to do with the osw wheel. It's simply software that controls bass shakers and dashboards amongst other things.

    IIRC, you can revert to MMos but, you have to also revert to older FW however, I'm not sure why anyone would want to. The SimuCube FW results are very good, better than MMos imo but, I still think that more effect-support is needed in order to access even more detail in certain titles (keeping in mind that I'm kind of alone in that sense). Still, between MMos and SimuCube, the latter is the better choice and I'm pretty sure that 95% of users (that have used both) would agree.

    Forget what I wrote. Simhub has nothing to do with wheels or ffb. My post was a specific reply to grimeydog when he said he used an audio feed to power his bass shakers.

    Here is a link to information about what is needed to run the SimuCube Firmware. You can use the links there to access specific relevant details depending on your hardware configuration.

    I don't use Sim Vibe but With Race Room the Buttkicker Feel is thunderous and lines up exactly to what i See ,Hear, and Feel in the wheel.

    The Buttkicker feel is Good in Most Games but Race Room is By Far the Best... They did a Excellent job with the Audio:D.

    ATM im Not interested in Sim Vibe because then i have to use a sound card...My set up is ...from the TV optical Audio output to My Astro Mix amp and I Run the Buttkickers from the Mix Amp audio output... This way anything i watch/Play (PC, PS4, Xbox1, Net Flix etc) on the TV the Buttkickers work... If i were to use Sim Vibe and a sound card it would only work with PC and I would have to change wires to make everything else work and I'm just too Lazy;)

    RSeat N1 Rig is Very Solid I use 3x Buttkickers.... 2x under the seat 1 plays Left other plays Right ...1 under the pedals plays Left & Right and the Whole Rig thumps with all Buttkickers at 1/2 volume or less.

    Fair enough, but trust me you are missing out. A good tactile setup is amazing.
