Grand Theft Auto + Driving Cabinet?
« on: September 16, 2013, 02:51:14 pm »
So with the release of Grand Theft Auto tomorrow - this thought cross my mind.  Has anyone ever tried getting a GTA game running on their driving cabinet?  You'd have to have a split control thing going on - gamepad for "out of car" mode, then steering wheel for in car.

I know Just Cause 2 has separate control options configurable for both in car / on foot / in plane modes...  but I've never looked at the PC version of GTA games (I have of the older ones for my PS2)

A large part of the game is driving so I'd think getting a wheel going would add to the experience?   Or am I just nuts?   :afro:

edit:  Found a note http://www.gamefaqs.com/boards/952150-grand-theft-auto-iv/47926329 that states wheel support was patched into GTA IV, so I'm guessing GTA V will support it as well.  That probably means the GTA III series won't have support - but that's never stopped Logitech profile + X360CE users before...  :D

It's not  comfortable at all. and complicated with all the buttons needed to control them.

I myself tried it :banghead:

they driving physics are much better in GTAV, but teh rest, meh. too much non driving to warrant the effort.
If you are helping someone and expecting something in return, you are doing business not kindness.

Bummer.  Thanks for the responses.  Shame - but GTA V is supposed to be huge.
