Post subject: Wheel Problem Reply with quote

Hey
I'm using a Logitech Formula Force EX wheel.

What happens is when I press down on the accelerator, the vehicle just jults very slowly and doesn't go anywhere,
Can anyone help?

Sensitivity perhaps, recalibrate?

Just re calibrated, and sensitivity seems to be OK, but still having problems, however when I go into settings, and look at pedals etc I notice this . . .

With me putting NO pressure on pedals, the bars seem to be full


As I apply pressure, the bars decrease, surely it should be the other way round?[/b]

Sounds like the pedals axis are wrong, So the throttle and brakes are working together. Mine did that when I got this same wheel

Generally, yes. There should be a setting to switch these around, either in the settings of your wheel, or perhaps within Midtown Madness.

Yeah, somewhere in that same window (different tab?) there should be an option to change it from combined axis to single axis or vice-versa. Once you do that, you'll need to set the accelerator and brake again in the MM2 controls menu.

Problem after Problem with Logitech (thought they were meant to be good Laughing) anyway,

The wheel likes to "jult" around, even with force feedback off, and refuses to sit in the centre. When I turn the whell 30 degrees right its OK, if i turn it 1 degress left, it does a 30 degrees turn, wtf Confused

I have re calibrated, etc set up axis and still no luck Confused

You're having more luck than me gosouthcoast. The problem with mine is that the pedals don't even work. It works fine with CBS 2010 & Xpadder, but in MM2 it doesn't work and the combination of MM2 & Xpadder doesn't work either Sad

You always get that with **** cheap wheels no matter who made it, you need to pay a bit more money to get a worthwhile wheel.

It's just the fact that not everybody has enough money to spend on buying brand new steering wheels all the time. I just wanted to know if anybody had any ideas on why it isn't working properly in MM2 Rolling Eyes

Yeah, but I'm just saying it's because it's a cheap wheel and they always pack up. It's always the same thing that happens. Before my current wheel I had a £40 cheap horrible thing, it lasted a month working fine and then started doing exactly what you guys are describing. Tried everything but still no luck, and it can't have been wrong settings because it worked fine before and I never touched anything. I took it back and replaced it with the same wheel, same thing happened again soon afterwards. I also know one or two people who have had exactly the same thing happen; and they all had... cheap wheels. Just don't bother.

With cheap wheels, it's just a matter of luck. I paid £20 for mine and haven't had a single problem with it. Although I would like more rotation. But then somebody else could go and buy a cheap wheel for the same price and it could pack up within a week. Even worse, they could buy £200 wheel and it could pack up soon after purchase. I know a couple of people that's happened to.. Shocked

If you are spending £200 on a wheel and do not have a guarantee you are stupid. If they were that stupid, they should have got a replacement. Logitech are very good with guarantees.
