I have bought a Logitech Formula Force EX steering wheel
and connected to my Mac Book Pro running Leopard
and I have bought Flat Out 2

The steering wheel is showing up in the game's controller menu... and I select it
but the wheel is still not controlling the game... the keyboard is.

Does anyone else have experience using this wheel
or any wheel with Flat Out 2 ?

I have contacted Logitech support
and they say I have to try with another game or on a PC
but I don't have one...
I am a beginner in games...

can anyone help please
thanks
Pete

Have you also gone to the Configure Controls section in the options and mapped the throttle/brake/ steer left/right to use the pedals and the wheel? And by all means the other buttons as well? You need to do that.

My Logitech Momo Racing wheel works fine in the game. But contrary to TOCA Race Driver 3 or Colin Mc Rae (if Feral ever fixes the force feedback problems), I have come to the conclusion that a wheel is not the best controller for Flatout 2. When you start turning the wheel, the car doesn't turn as much at it should - you have to turn the wheel very much in order to play properly. I would recommend using a gamepad or joystick.

It's true that you have to configure it for all games. If you still have problems, do this:
- unplug the DC cord from the MOMO wheel (so it does not have electricity in it)
- shut down your mac
- plug the wheel's DC cord
- start you Mac

By doing this, it also auto-calibrates itself while OSX is starting up which is pretty cool (this also works with Vista)
