Here’s the inside scoop… HaptX has been using their Quake4 Mods primarily for demos and testing their HaptX software. A lot of people have been asking them how to get their hands on it so they’ve decided to make it public. They’ve spent a lot of time working with the Quake4 SDK and tweaking the experience so that it's optimized for the Falcon based community - including maintaining the speed and accuracy associated with games of this genre. At the same time they also wanted to maximize the capabilities of the Novint Falcon, embedding the recoil of the individual weapons while feeling the directions of bullets and explosions.
The HaptX Mod will be free of charge, but you'll need a copy of Quake4 installed on your computer. All you have to do is setup the Quake4 HaptX mod and play! We’re encouraging everyone to schedule tournaments and gatherings and use the setup to enjoy the first dedicated multiplayer environment with the Novint Falcon. More information on the Quake4 Multiplayer HaptX Mod will be available on Novint’s Web site and the HaptX Web site.
