hello i don't know qhere to post my request, and as developers of somes FPS maybe you can give me somes informations.
I play a lot of FPS, and want ting more realism i am thinking of making feel every bullet hitting my personnage. My idea is to extract hits from the game and that can trigger a little electronic set that delivers electric shock via pads. Maybe this is already discuss in here. If yes i haven't find it, if not i would be pleased if i can have informations as possible.
Years ago one gadget was creat (Mindwire V5) an maybe other that i haven't heard of. Every informations would be helpful.
Thanks a lot
