Post subject: Steering Wheels (Again lol)! Reply with quote

I've decided to buy a wheel for MM2 but noticed some aren't compatible with MM2 :O

Any suggestions on CHEAP! wheels with pedals?

Cheeeers!

I would seriously recommend the G25. Ok, it's not cheap, but is one of the better investments I've made.
I got mine for substantially less than the average price on a good offer @ Misco a while ago... £100.

Ok, so not everything on it is compatible with MM2... clutch doesn't work, nor does gear change properly, but hey, if you're using it mainly with semi-auto buses, who cares!

On the upside, you get a 900 degree wheel, lots and lots of programmable buttons, you can easily change the strength of the vehicle, you can change the gear stick very easily into a handbrake and looooooads more!

Seriously, if you have £100 after Christmas, buy the Logitech G25!!

I've got a Logitech Driving Force, it does basically everything a G25 does (after you take away the stuff that doesn't work properly e.g. clutch and H shifter) and it was a fair bit cheaper. I paid £80 for mine and that was a good year ago at least. It's designed for the PS3 but because it's USB it works fine on the PC without even needing any drivers etc. I'd recommend downloading the Logitech Gaming Software if you do get a Logitech. It also unlocked my 900 degree steering for me Very Happy

G25 has leather wheel, bigger standard size than the driving force.
The clutch and gears on the G25 can be used on other driving games (and it works fine on them...
Oh and the gear stick is able to be put either side or just packed away from the G25. So, worth the extra money.

I know, I meant for MM2 Laughing

Actually there's a surprising amount of games that the clutch and/or gear stick don't work properly for. I know quite a few people that have one, and they don't work on any of the main games I play (about 5). So, at least for me, there is no difference function wise. Smile

The microsoft xbox360 steering wheel with pc adapter is good.

Definitely cheaper than a G25.

Dunno about anyone else but i've noticed anyone who owns the G25 seems to be a jackass about it like all wheels are crap compared, they never think some people don't have loads of money to spend on a steering wheel to just play GAMES!

Nope, each wheel has it's good and bad things. It just seemed that the moment a G25 is mentioned people are too quick to slag it off and usually those, who have never tried the G25, are addiment that there's is better.

The G25 is my 4th or 5th wheel and by far the best in my opinion.
