    So, I realised I had been playing a vibration compatible game (custom robo arena) for some time but had never enabled it (on max of course!). however, now whenever i fire or get hit, when i presume it is supposed to vibrate, I just get a quite loud "Breeeee" sound from my ds, and it hardly vibrates at all...

    is my ez-3-in-1 duff? [​IMG]

    Sounds like the weight came off the motor. Does your 3in1 rattle?

    Yeah does sounds a little like the weight may have come off. If it does rattle I wouldnt worry to much then. I got my 3in1 and used the rumble once for Metriod Pinball....never again. No games support it [​IMG]

    I also find it a little too noisy

    well, I don't think the weight has come off, It does not rattle, and I think i can see it on the shaft by looking into the cart.

    ok, so i just tried a different game, air traffic chaos.

    i can confirm that it definitely does vibrate, my only guess is that the short bursts CRA does just didn't feel that strong to me.

    however it is still really, really, really noisy when rumbling....

    is this "normal"? any way to fix it? (other than replace the vibration motor, which i am considering doing)
