  • LED and Vibration Control plug-in for rFactor available as Alpha

    • We now have an Alpha version of the plug in for rFactor available which enables the game to directly control the LED display and the vibration motors.


      The following settings are possible:


      LED

      • Speed: Shows speed
      • Gear: Shows selected gear
      • Fuel: Shows remaining fuel
      • Place: Shows current position


      Vibration

      •  Gas pedal: Connected to throttle position (current default function)
      •   Shifting indicator: Sends a vibration signal when it is time to change gears
      • Engine revs: Connected tothe actual revs of the engine
      • ABS indicator: Send virbration signal when the wheel blocks


      Note: You can still change the intensity of the vibration motor in the Tuning menu and it is recommended to do so for the different settings. Try it out.


      Note: This is not a final version and not even a Beta so please make a backup of your registry before using it. So far it was only tested on Win XP 32 systems


       


      Other games and a proper control panel will follow soon! 


      The file is attached to this news message.

  • Xbox 360 wheel demo with Forza 2

    • This is the first video of the Porsche 911 Turbo S wheel for Xbox 360 in action.


      The wheel runs well with Forza 2 and other games but it still lacks some Force Feedback effects. We also still need to implement the Tuning function and the 6 speed gear shifter

    • Fanatec will be showing some new stuff on the Games Convention this year.

       

      We will be at the business center together with our distribution partner Sunflex Europe (Hall 1 K01) and in the consumer section (Hall 4 D10).

      Come around and you will see our new wheel and two new racing cockpits.
