Question about Microsoft Wireless Racing Wheel for Xbox 360

1 Answer

My force feedback is really weak on Forza 3(new batteries and plugged in). I bought it in 07 and it came with the game PGR3, it says the drivers are on the game disc so i loaded PGR3 again like i did in 07 when it worked great. Anyways it used to work great on Forza 2, very good force feedback.. but it really sucks on Forza 3. I dont have Forza 2 to try anymore but PGR3 didnt work right either anymore when i played it. Is there anything someone knows to fix this, ive called microsoft but there tellng me everything i already tried. The wheel works fine but weak force feedback sucks, seems like a driver issue but the ones on the cd wont fix it. Thanks for any help !!

Try plugging it in without the batteries. Also I a part that Microsoft uses is plastic so it wears out after awhile. The force feedback on my xbox wheel is not as strong as it was when new.

How to Learn a New Racing Track on Forza 2?


How to Learn New Racing Track on Forza 2
1)Drive slowly around track so you know layout
    2)Start using whole width of track for all corners, using very late apexes
    3)Work up speed, and pull each apex back about 3 feet (0.9m) with each lap
    4)Eventually, you will have to use entire width of track exiting corners. Now you're closer to car's cornering limits, so start moving apexes back in similar increments.
    5)When you've worked up to speeds and apexes that force you to use entire track, you have found your basic approach for lapping track
    6)Now work on certain corners

Have microsoft sidewinder force feedback pro with 9 pin connecter.need usb adapter


You have the old game port connector. I have one of those too and researched it and even bought one of the adapters. What I found is that the adapters will generally work EXCEPT if your unit has force feedback. The force feedback versions of the MS sticks uses a special protocol that the adapters can't handle. I haven't looked recently, but if you look for an adapter make sure it says it will support force feedback (most will say they don't). In my case I just bought a new joystick.

I have the Wireless Racing Wheel with Force Feedback. We usually play Forza Motorsport 2 and everything worked fine. We recently bought Need for Speed Hot Pursuit (2010) and the pedals don't work. ...


Hello, NFS Hot pursuit 2010 on the Xbox 360 officially supports the Microsoft wheel but any Xbox 360 wheel will most likely work fine....their words. I haven't played the console version but if you say the wheel works I suggest you try remapping the pedal controls under gameplay settings if this is possible

I hope this helps, thanks for using FixYa.

You can either contact Microsoft Xbox Suppot to ask for the installation disc or if you have a Forza 2 or PGR3 game disc you can use them as well. These game discs has a patch that will update the wireless racing wheel and should make it work.

Need a port for my MS force feedback pro


Just get yourself a new soundcard with a gameport on board. Disable your MoBO soundcard if you have one and instal the new one. Creative is probably the safest option. Update the drivers and off you go. Don't forget to add the joystick, the drivers are supplied in XP.

I tried the above link and it works fine, on a 32-bit Vista. But if you have a 64-bit Vista you might want to try the 64-bit version of this driver, just search around Google for it. Fixed the problem I was having with this joystick not working correctly in Vista (no feedback). Now it works great.

Microsoft's Sidewinder Force Feedback Pro Driver


Sorry to report that there is no driver for this stick that will allow the feedback to work with Win XP. I wanted to cry when I first found this out. I've been searching since the mid 90's for a work around for this. We can send a man to the moon and back on less than 1 meg of ram. But someone can not get this stick to work properly with Win XP?

That REALLY SUCKS!!!
