Hello, ok found something that maybe will help, did not try it yet but will at the weekend.
First IL2 seems to have patched a few issues regarding some joysticks, also you can edit some files (it is easy) that make the MS sidewinder II ffb work in all kinds of strengths without making the sim stutter - as said will have to try it..

So the old MS Sidewinder II with USB and electric motors still seems to be the best if you want FFB in 2020. It works very well in RoF and it seems now also in IL2.

I was looking for a new ffb stick and was wondering why there is none.
Seems there is no ffb gear on the market because a company called "Immersion" bought the patents and wanted to make a cash cow out of it. But the js producers were not willing to pay the obviously insane price, so no money for the "immersion" company, and no new ffb gear for us.

This is really insane, i wonder how much ideas and developments in general cannot suceed because of some greedy !"$%&/()

Upside is the MS SW2 ffb is still working almost everywhere.

edit: update it seems there are a few ffb sticks apart from the old MS, does anyone have one and which type? Does i work?

>^..^<*)))>{ All generalizations are wrong.
