Is it possible to have 3 devices and still play simracing?

    I have a TSPC racer I'm going to get Fanatec V3 pedals soon and I'm planning on getting SHH Shifter however they will all act as three separate devices therefore I was wandering will the sims recognise 3 devices at once? Thank you.

    Most sims recognize at least 3 devices.

    For instance, I have a Fanatec CSWv2, Logitech G25 pedals on a bodnar USB cable, and Logitech G25 shifter on another bodnar USB cable for a total of 3 devices. These are all recognized by R3E, AMS, AC, pCARS, and rF2. Configuring "Frankenstein" systems such as this can sometimes be a challenge... I remember R3E being a pain because it kept expecting the pedals to be Fanatec as well, but in the end everything worked. rF2 will recognize some large number of devices, like 6(?).

    Wreckfest, as I recall, only recognizes the pedals & wheel, but I haven't tried confirming that lately, so it may or may not support 3 devices. Most of the older sims recognize 3 devices with no difficulty (Race07, GTR2, & original rF).

    Just chiming in to say that I also use three devices... T300 wheel, modded G27 pedals on a Bodnar cable, and a G27 h-box on a Bodnar adapter. They work absolutely fine in the sims I currently play, which is RaceRoom, Automobilista, Assetto Corsa, and rFactor 2. :thumbsup:

    I have four devices:
    T300
    ClubSport V3
    SSH Shifter
    Button box + hall sensor handbrake (and sometimes G25 pedals were connected to the Teensy board too)

    I never had any problems at all with any game: Richard Burns, rFactor, Automobilista, ETS2, Assetto, R3E, Dirt Rallye...

    Yeah you can pretty much have as many as you have USB holes to shove them into, I'm counting 7 sim peripherals on my rig, some are doubled up such as my sequential shifter and wheel paddles, but all can be mapped.
