XPForce

Latest Version: 1.0.4875 (History)

XPForce is a plugin for X-Plane from Laminar Research. XPForce adds support for force-feedback joysticks, yokes and pedals on Windows and soon for Linux!

Linux support is in testing right now. Please see the Linux-specific page for more details.

X-Plane has long offered support for force-feedback but this depended on separate, 3rd-party software to actually communicate with the force feedback joysticks. It also only works if each individual aircraft was built to support force-feedback. Sadly, most aircraft available seem not to have this support.

This plugin adds the essential hardware support on Windows, but also bypasses the need to modify each of your aircraft files to support forces. It will use X-Plane's 'native' force support if the aircraft is built for it, but if not then the plugin will use internal calculations for forces.

Features

  • Real control-surface forces sent to any Force-Feedback capable joystick or pedals
  • No need to manually change .acf files to enable forces
  • Full simulation of forces in realtime
  • Will use forces provided by X-Plane for force-enabled aircraft, at your choice
  • Fully configurable force strengths
  • Save configuration for each aircraft, or defaults to apply to all aircraft
  • Easily share force settings
  • Free Trial - just download and install

Requirements

  • X-Plane 9, but preferably 10 or 11
  • Windows 32-bit or 64-bit
  • Linux 64-bit - experimental
  • Supported force-feedback/haptic controller
