Logitech G27 racing wheel.

Not Thai related, but I don't feel like joining another forum just to ask one question.

 

My son has dusted off his Logitech G27 racing wheel and has asked my to download one (free?) pc program for him to play with. Simple enough, surely.

Well, a day and a half later; no success.

We have a Steam account and I did have one very good program years ago that worked but can't manage to find it. 

I don't mind paying if need be, but just want something that works for now. 

I googled a pile of programs and downloaded them but couldn't configure the controls correctly.

Any suggestions will be thankfully received.

I'm playing GTA 5 on mine, but its a bit of a pain to set up, and you need a decent graphics card.  It's awesome once its set up though.

The recent truck simulators are great on the G27. 

 

GTA5 might be worth trying. My young fella has worn it out on xbox. 

I tried a few truck sims but just couldn't configure it correctly. The steering would work but not the pedals or gear change or something else.

Could I need to download special new G27 software or drivers? 

I know more about clearing blocked drains than computers.

All I remember us it used to work really well on some track sim ages ago but can't find it or anything else similar.

For GTA V there are 2 ways of doing it.

or

https://www.gta5-mods.com/tools/script-hook-v

 

I use the script-hook-v method as it is easier to set up, and a bit more realistic. The only down side, is that you can only play in Story mode when this mod is added to the game folder, and it crashes when you exit and enter a car for the first time during the game. The fix is simply a case of pressing "Alt" "Tab" and then press "Enter" on the error box.

 

I am not sure why you are not getting the pedals working on the truck simulators? The G27 is specifically listed in the options.

 

BTW. The track sim you may of been thinking of could be  BeamNG ? https://beamng-drive.en.softonic.com/

Ahaa. Thanks heaps Amusements.

The GT5 thing is over my head but I might be able to get Beam up and running.

I will keep you informed.
