Been itching to play all my racing games with a steering wheel so I did a little research to see which were highly rated and settled on the Thrustmaster T150...plus it was the only one Best Buy had in stock and i didn't feel like waiting 2 days from Amazon. All I wanted to do was play all my racing games I've bought over the years on Steam and Origin. I have so many and thought all of them would feel like new playing with a wheel now!
Got home, set it all and tested out the first game. 2007's GRID. Ok, lets go to the options and select my trusty new T150 wheel. Hhhhhhuuuh. Not showing up in the settings. Lemme google that. First thread forum I find is people asking why the GRID games don't support the T150. Ugh.
Ok, let's try out TrackMania Canyon! Cool..steering controls work. 3.2.1. GO! Pedals wont make car go vrrrrmm. Can't even remap the T150 settings in the options.
Alright...remain calm. Maybe Flatout 3 will work. Sweet...T150 shows up in controls. Let me map them since all the maps are empty for some reason. Cool..all set. 3...2..1..GO! Car flies back in reverse on its own. Hitting brake pedal accelerates the car, letting go reverses it. COME ON!!!!!!!!!!!!
In summation....if you're looking to play older games like 2007's Grid, some of the Dirt series, Flatout, older NFS games or the Trackmania series...don't bother with this wheel. Either the wheel isn't supported at all or if the game does see it, the pedals don't work correctly. Even after mapping them the pedals are usually reversed (brake on accel and accel on brake) or something else doesn't work. I got it to work on 2012's NFS Most Wanted but it didn't feel right and there were no options to change steering sensitivity/deadzone and all that.
My PC is pretty brand new too so that's not the issue. i7 7700K, GTX 1080 GPU, Win 10, SSD drive, latest updates.
Been messing with it for a couple hours now and I'm just putting it back in the darn box and returning it. Too frustrated to even bother seeing what other racing games I have it doesn't work with.
It might work awesome on PS4 but it only supports 2 of the 9 racing games I have on PS4. Not worth $200 + tax to play 2 games with a wheel so I didn't even bother seeing how well it worked with those games on a PS4 vs the horrible results I was getting on PC.
