I got most of the driving games set, but some spinner wheel type games like SuperSprint and OffRoad are still not working.
Yup, for those games you need a wheel that shows up as a spinner and spins endlessly.
You can get the games you mentioned working just well enough to play, but they'll never feel quite right.
Other games like pole position are literally impossible to get working properly.
Question 1: Im confused on the Dial settings for Mame. The sensitivity and digital numbers, whats the ideal setting? Higher means what, as opposed to lower numbers? If anyone could elaborate.
This is covered in the first post of this thread. Settings that say "Digital" are for when key presses are substituted for analog controls. The only setting that has an effect on your analog controls is Sensetivity and Reverse. IIRC, I have the sensitivity set above 130 for most games. Every game is different and must be set up individually.
Question 2: My computer sees the SRW-S1 wheel as a Analog Joystick. I cant seem to get it to work on Sega Model 2, because when I set the analog brake and throttle, I only have the option to set Steering or Brake, not acceleration. Thoughts?
M2 emulator requires the pedals to be on separate axis. Yours is apparently on one axis. You should be able to map it to acceleration and use a button for the brake. You might be able to work around it by using a program called x360ce to create a virtual xbox controller and then selecting x-input in the m2 config file.
Question 3: How do I hook up a analog wheel to Demul?
Just map it under the analog inputs on the same screen where you map the other controls.
Question 4: Should I just return this wheel and get the Logitech g27? I'm looking for the easiest way to set up a wheel, and maybe this USB wheel is more trouble than its worth.
Up to you. The wheel you have takes up no space.
Anything you get is going to have it's quirks. The G27 clutch pedal will wreak havoc while trying to map controls in Demul and some PC games unless you hold it exactly halfway down. The cheaper wheels without a clutch don't have that problem, but they don't have an H-shifter either and would require workarounds for that.
I've thought about getting that controller for the living room.
It crams a lot of stuff into a small package.
I'd be interested to hear your thoughts on how it performs. I think my arms would get tired.
I wonder how different from a standard wheel it would feel if attached to a steering shaft with a centering spring?
