    If someone found the code in the game that controlled collisions, patched it to jump to a custom sub that activated rumble, it would be very possible. It maybe even be possible using a cheat. If there's a piece of ram (a byte or two) that is written to when collisions happen, a sub that is linked somewhere that is triggered fairly often, it could watch it for changes and trigger a rumble when it does.
    It most likely won't be as easy as it sounds.

    From what I get,
    it's possible in theory but it asks pretty much to remake each game to make it rumble compatible, right?


    Cause you have to find *what players control* collisions, not just any collision.. [​IMG]


    Well too much gabble for rumble!

    Cop out, you tie it to the stuff dealing with sound rather than collisions.

    Generally, invincibility cheats patch bytes written to ram that are modified when taking damage.
    When GogoAckman and I were implementing Rumble support in FBA-XXX, I set it up so that it simply
    monitors for data to be written to specific addresses, then it triggers a rumble. I found the
    addresses by using cheat files that were already available. [​IMG]
