Console wheel question
« on: August 19, 2003, 02:17:12 pm »
Is there an universal wheel that is compatabile w/ a PC as well.


I do not intend on hooking a PC wheel to my consoles.  I am looking for a universal console wheel that also works on a PC.

I don't see why a xbox wheel plugged into a xbox to PC adapter wouldn't work on the PC. The PC should just see the wheel as a regular xbox controller.

Of course thats just theory... If somebody wanted to send me the adapter I'd give it a try.
My statements are my own opinions. They have the value that the reader gives them. My opinion of my opinion varies between foolish and brilliant and these opinions often change with new information.

I have a PS1 to PC adapter and the Control Panel config for it shows wheel compatibility (s well as fishing controllers). Not tested it with my PS1 wheel yet as I only got the adapter a couple weeks ago.

No reason why any console wheel with the correct PC adapter and drivers wouldn't work, though PC to console isn't practical due to the console driver issue.
