Just saw this youtube video and I'd like to know what game it is, does it sound familiar?

One of my favorites! Highly underrated game, and it supports LAN on PC as well.

I'm pretty sure I am missing some really good games out there just because I didn't even know they exist... although good surprises every now and then when one discovers them.

I can also highly recommend BLUR in case you haven't heard of that one.

I saw that one a while ago with a friend, in fact, he ended up buying it but for what I can remember we couldn't make it work with his PC wheel so we didn't play much. At least I didn't that time.

Do you play that one with a standard controller, or is there a workaround to play with a wheel?

That's true I don't think either game has wheel support, but my wheel is actually a hacked xbox 360 controller, so I can play almost any game I want even if it doesn't have wheel support... No FFB though, but honestly I do'tn miss it.

Wooww... that looks pretty cool!, how was that achieved? Hardware hack you mean, or something easier to do via software?

Yeah Hardware based. In a nut shell, the old arcade wheels were potentiometer based, and an xbox 360 controller thumbstick is potentiometer based, so you wire the potentiometer from the arcade wheel to the the 360 controller board and you've got a wheel. There are some limitations, no FFB and I think its less degrees, arcade wheels were 270 degrees and the 360 controller only supports 180. But you really don't notice it because you still have the full travel of the 270 degrees. Works shockingly well.

Interesting, worth knowing that's even possible... thanks mate!
