D-Box gaming is ONLY available for Windows PC Games (no video game consoles). For D-Box games the only components required to set up this system is a Windows computer and a KAI-1P to connect your dBox chair to the PC via USB. Now please keep in mind that the word "D-Box games" is a little misleading since 99% of all supported dbox titles are actually simulators (A.K.A. sims). There are maybe at most 3 so call real traditional video games (Battlefield 2 [FPS], Crysis Warhead [FPS], & Trackmania Turbo [Arcade Racer]) in their whole list out of the 75 titles, the rest of them are sims with the great major being off the racing variety type. Hence, it's highly recommended to have a Steering Wheel with force feedback, brake pedals, and wheel stand (links of reviews of the best ones included here):
Note: For my D-Box gaming setup I use a "Thrustmaster VG T300 Ferrari Alcantara Edition Racing Wheel for PS4, PS3 and PC" and a "GT Omega Wheel Stand".
A complete list of D-Box games can be found by going to the "Downloads" tab of the following link:
(DO NOT USE the D-BOX "Supported Gaming" tab because it's an outdated uncompleted list)
Here's a narrow down list of just the VR games that has D-Box motion (broken up in their perspective category)...
Live For Speed
RaceRoom Racing Experience (Free to Play, but the DLC for extras cars & tracks makes this one very expensive compared to the other sims)
iRacing (warning: paid membership subscription required to play)
Kart Racing Pro (Coming Soon for VR Support via Steam...however currently D-Box motion is only available on their older beta13b version)
We need to please ask D-Box to update their software to the latest version of Kart Racing Pro.
Euro Truck Simulator 2 (VR is currently only supported in the Beta Branch version)
American Truck Simulator (VR is currently only supported in the Beta Branch version)
Arcade Racing Game:
Trackmania Turbo (GamePad Controller Only...No Steering Wheel & Pedals support)
Roller Coaster Simulator:
NoLimits Roller Coaster 2 (This is the only D-Box title I had the adjust the settings to a higher level/gain to get noticeable lifelike motion)
Lockheed Martin Prepar3D (A.K.A. Prepar3D...has native VR support)
X-Plane (Needs "FlyInside XP Pro" to enable VR)
Flight Simulator X (Needs "FlyInside FSX Pro" to enable VR)
DCS World (Needs the DLCs of A-10C for DBox support)
DCS Black Shark (VR was supported on Oculus Rift DK2...not sure if it's still compatible with the modern Oculus Rift CV1)
The Best D-Motion game with VR to demo to guests is American Truck Simulator ( or Euro Truck Simulator 2 if you like to drive on the wrong side of the road) because with a force feedback steering wheel plus brake pedals it actually feels like you are driving a real large 18 wheeler truck. D-Box motion is very important when using a VR headset like a Vive or Rift on a locomotion sim/game so guests will not experience motion sickness due to the brain being fooled into thinking that the experience is real and not a game.
"Trackmania Turbo" and "NoLimits Roller Coaster 2" are also two other great fun dBox games with VR to show off to guests.
How to set up your DBOX chairs for D-Box support games:
1. Download "D-BOX Motion Player Software Disc"
2. Install the software and connect the USB of KAI-1P to PC when prompt to do so.
3. Download & install the motion codes for the individual games you want.
4. Launch the game via D-BOX Motion Player program or in some cases directly from Steam app/game exec file.
5. Enjoy the awesome D-Box gaming experience that in a few games hands-down beats the motion from d-box movies.
TIP: In some instances when dealing with older titles, D-Box motion is only supported on the older 32-bit version of the game, not yet the newer/latest 64-bit version...so keep that in mind when running some of these older games.
