2 Wheels, 1 PC Help
« on: February 23, 2014, 04:08:34 am »
Hi guys,

Im having a bit of trouble, hoping some clever man can help me out. I am setting up a twin cab and trying to use only 1 PC for emulators etc. I have a PC with eyefinity setup if I need it (for splitscreen games). I setup m2emulator with 2 different copies for the 2 separate monitors and setup network etc and everything works great. Nice fullscreen image on both monitors, setup wheels on each side and works fine too EXCEPT only one player gets force feedback. Both wheels are Fanatec GT2 wheels. Now I then setup single player on just the wheel with no force feedback. Driving around was fine except force feedback effects happened to wrong wheel!! I then thought I would set One Player in Logitech G25 Mode and the other in Fanatec Mode, tested in single player first and it worked fine with Force Feedback effects so then setup a network race and it had no force feedback effects at all again! Really frustrating, anyone can give me some tips on how to fix this so both players get the effects?

Thanks

You probably can't to be honest.  M2 has it's issues and even if it didn't, I don't know of many pc games, much less emulators that have games that support more than one wheel.  It's probably looking for the first FF device and attaching.

I'm honestly impressed you got it working as well as you have with a single PC.. Most software just isn't designed to do that.

Not terribly helpful but isn't there a prototype version of m2 out there that allows linking?  Got it that you would have to run a second PC but that'd be about the only way AFAIK.

My thoughts as well, but didnt want to say anything since he wanted it on 1 PC, whomp Whomp
