Two days later when I set up my own wheel on my Dell Dimension tower system with Windows ME, the software installed just fine and the wheel was recognized by the OS. I was happily surprised. Then when I installed "NASCAR Racing 4", the game wouldn't recognize the wheel and wanted to keep using the CH Combatstick that was plugged into the gameport on the soundcard. I found that the only way to get the wheel to work was to have the OS not recognize the Combatstick, so that the game would see only the wheel (there were no other controllers attached to my stepfather's PC). Once that was done, the game and wheel worked fine. When I get ready to fly a flight sim, I'll have to reinstall the Combatstick again, which isn't too difficult but is annoying as its just one more step to perform before playing Combat Flight Sim 2, my favorite flight sim.
My Sidewinder wheel came with a free game (Midtown Madness 2), but my stepfather's came with a rebate, so I suspect that I have newer software than he does. Next time I'm at his house I'll bring my disk and reload his wheel to see if that resolves what is now a moot problem.
The Sidewinder wheel's software includes a schematics feature for games that allows you to map functions to certain buttons.Read more ›
