I have a Thrustmaster T-FLIGHT HOTAS and it runs very well

Another possible option for a HOTAS system when our MS FFB 2 sticks eventually fail. Until that personally disastrous day happens I do hope for continued MS FFB 2 support in the sims I play. :classic_cool:

I think that depend on the software. And software has supported force feedback for a decade + 

Missing that in a new software can’t even be possible

Really hope that this old joystick is still supported by this new sim when it comes out. Some of us old geezers are still regularly using one.

I've used the MSFFB2 in every sim that has FFB.
Likewise I've used my VPForce Rhino FFB in every sim that has FFB.
Both has sensors to register movement like any other stick, and both has driverboards & motors to receive and effectuate FFB, it's all up to the game to send the FFB telemetry to the stick 🙂 
Really it comes down to if Combat Pilot plans to implement FFB, so that's the biggest question really.

I've 2 of them but switched to Virpil. In IL-2 GB the FFB was hit and miss. Sometimes it worked, sometimes it didn't without changing anything.

In DCS it was pretty good with a few hiccups here and there.

My biggest gripe with the Sidewinder and why I finally changed was the lack of buttons and hats. It is ok for WW2 but anything after it's kinda difficult imo.

Never had an issue with FFB in IL-2, important not to let Windows screw with USB devices in the power plan and individual USB devices entries in device manager though.
