Pc Steeringwheel for Dreamcast :o



I need to figure out how to make my Pc steering wheel(MOMO Racing)work with my Dreamcast console - any good ideas on adapters or how to make it myself ???

I would really appreciate all the help I can get !!!

The reason I need to have a DC compatible PC wheel is this:

I'm making a sit-down arcade racing cabinet to play games like: F355 Challenge(DC), Metropolis Street Racer(DC), Grand Prix Legends(PC), F1-2002(PC) and netKar(PC)...and I don't like the idea of having to use two steering wheels, one for each format, in my arcade cabinet...

Any good idea's ? ::)



I see a couple of options... (From the research I've been doing lately)

There is a converter that allows you to use a Dreamcast controller with a PC (I found it at
With this you could use a Dreamcast Steering wheel with your PC as well...

Or you can get a couple of Playstation converters... (PS->PC & PS->DC) and use a Playstation Steering wheel.

I haven't seen ANY options to use computer controllers with console systems... PC hardware is always so different (hence all the stinking driver issues with every new piece of hardware). Honestly I don't know if you'll find anything to conect your PC wheel to the DC.

But by all means, if you do find a solution please post it here!!! (And since I hadn't specifically been digging for this idea, I'll keep my eyes open as well)

Good luck.

Seriously, you can't. To paraphrase Tmas, PC controllers aren't standardized. That's why any new controller for your PC also requires a driver. Console controllers on the other hand, interface with the system for which they were designed in a pre-defined driver required.

Tmas gave you the best advice you are going to get...console controller with an adapter for PC compatibility. And even then it's not a sure controller specific driver. But with the right combination of adapter and controller, it CAN be done.

Someone, correct me if I'm wrong--Howard?  ;D
