    a Microsoft Sidewinder FFB Usb steering wheel and Pedals, is this compatible with the game?
    Having installed the game i cannot find the said wheel in the options menu. You've options for Logitech/Trust/360 wired/wireless but no Sidewinder.
    TIA for any replies.

    There are wheels out there that will work in Evo, but they are not listed in the options menu. An example is the Logitech Driving Force EX: It isn't listed, but I've found that it will work. Try testing your wheel with the game. If it doesn't work, I can't help you any more.

    I've been using the microsoft force feedback (withe red highlight of wheel), for many years. It worked with all the simbin games ive played including GTR Evo. Like mentioned, you'll just have to input in your wheel buttons/pedals to each of the commands. If i remember correctly, you will have to select wheel, or create new controller first.

    correct me if im wrong.

    this wheel works well for the game, though of course Id like to upgrade.....but seeing that the next real step up is the g25, it is too costly.

    yes, you won't find a preset config in game, like for other wheels, but that doesn't stop you creating a new one yerself...

    i had this wheel - and i had major problems... but, pathetically, i can't remember why i had to stop using it.... i know it definitely didn't help that ms had stopped supporting it - so was hard to get the decent drivers... can't remember if i couldn't split the axis on the pedals (that might have been it)...

    I believe it was the 1st steering wheel i wanted. But i think you should try a newer one.
