I installed and tried it out and with rigourus tuning it only gives me 80% throttle and break. Steering wheel dosent seem to give much feed back resistance nore does it push back at you while flying round corners. Just curious if anyone has one or have used one. Maybe upto date drivers since it aint 2006 anymore lol.
It's a good wheel for the price (cheap as chips!). Might be a bit limited but it is a decent introduction for gaming-wheel controllers and more serious racing-games.
You'll definitely enjoy racing-games much better than with the gamepad, that's for sure!
I'm not completely certain of this, but I think the Logitech Formula Force EX is pretty much the same wheel (just slightly updated) as the older Logitech (WingMan) Formula Force GP, which means the drivers for the younger wheel may suit the older one.
So you may wish to try, as an alternative solution, the current Logitech drivers from HERE
(go to "downloads"
, then select your OS).
Once you got the drivers installed make sure to change settings in the Logitech Control Panel (open the program through "Start/Programs" list, if it's not in your desktop/taskbar icons).
A friend had a Formula Force GP and the settings we tried on the Logitech control panel, for GTR2 and GT-Legends, seemed to work nicer as something like this:
- Overall effects strenght = 90%
- Spring Effect strengt = 135%
- Damper Effect strenght = 125%
- Centering Spring Strenght = 125%
- with "centering spring in force feedback games" ON (enabled/checked)
- Report Combined Pedals OFF (disabled/unchecked)
Some of the settings are a bit overdone as you can see. It's on purpose as the FFB on this wheel is not strong, so it's like a 'workaround' the limitations. (no worries or probs with these, the wheel can take it)
Notice that you can (should, actually) adjust separately the ammount of FFB force -and type- inside the game options, per your taste.
An important note - once that's done, when you're (re)assigning buttons/commands for your wheel in the game, and if it's GTR2 or GT-Legends, better make sure to assign the brake pedal first, before doing it for the throtle pedal.
...test it and see how it goes?
