    Maybe once the Sinden lightgun starts to get around it will generate more interest and motivation.

    I think that wheel is exactly the same hardware as the T80. I have a T80 and I use it with both of those games, and others. Have you ever opened the "Control Panel" application? It gets installed with the Thrustmaster drivers, the icon for it looks like a steering wheel, if you start typing it into Windows search it should appear. Check those settings. Also remember that those 2 games are some of the more difficult to drive, especially Grid which has much less arcade-y handling than other games, while Sega Rally 3 is heavily focused on drifting / sliding. I remember at first Sega Rally 3 on a G29 seemed impossible but we just had to get used to it.

    I haven't messed with those but maybe I will try them, however those settings work for all the other games. I know sometimes people will find a certain setting that conflicts with other games and then just make a new TP directory specifically for the one game, I had to do that with one game I forget why now.

    As I suspected Xinput doesn't work for a G29, it won't even let me map them. Thanks though. Anyone else have ideas to fix the Fast n Furious games always steering to the right?

    Never thought of that, I have no idea if the wheel will still work if I check the X-Input box for the Fast n Furious games. I guess I will try it next time, thanks.

    Anyone know the steering fix for the Fast n Furious games? My steering just always goes to the right, using a G29.

    Oh, since which version? I hadn't checked in awhile but I definitely remember at some point they were Windows 10 only, something to do with audio libraries I think.

    I've been wanting to try switching to Windows 10, mainly because I'm interested in some Lindbergh games. Is there a "best version" of Windows 10 for this purpose? Anyone know a good method/tutorial for completely blocking Windows updates? For a start I can keep the PC off the internet but that can really slow you down when trying to get these games working, you often have to go into a browser many times to find solutions patches etc.

    Battle Gear does work for me, I can get into a race and play it, but what I meant was the opponent (AI, computer player, CPU) does nothing, the car just sits there not racing against me. I was using a G29 last time I tried Battle Gear and I don't recall having much trouble with it in Teknoparrot. What controller are you using?

    When I try that game it's like the computer opponent does nothing, do you know why?

    Yes I have 4 PCs with thru I have 2-4 player working in other games. Each Wangan has a unique ID, actually I believe if not they throw up some kinda error. I have seen Wangan's attract screen change to show 2-4Players available but when we start I don't see any option to start a multiplayer game, we all just end up in singleplayer. I might have had this working last year but I just can't remember now, although only one of these PCs is from that time, the rest were setup recently.

    For dual booting, EasyBCD is a tool that might be useful in some situations. I had some problems with Windows 10 dual boot and it helped me. Something to note about Windows 10 dual boots, on mine anyway, I have to restart to get the boot selection, if I shutdown it boots right into the OS without giving me the selection screen. I have a steering problem in Fast n Furious games, always goes to the right (I think maybe left), but other than that they do work for me on Windows 7 through Teknoparrot. Anyone have suggestions for 2-4 player driving games that work on Windows 7? I currently have Daytona, GTI Club 3, Mario Kart, Initial D8, Sega Rally 3. Wangan5 says it's ready for 2-4 players but I cannot figure out how to actually start a multiplayer game.

    I was having a problem when I tried to add games without internet it would crash. I believe the reason is that when it tries to grab the icon for the newly added game, it does not fail gracefully.

    Oh so I'm not the only one that has that kinda problem. I posted about a similar issue long time ago but it seemed like it was some crazy one-off fluke that only happened to me. For me the problem(s) are not consistent, they don't always happen but fairly often. Best way I can describe it is at various times, sometimes when the game starts, sometimes after the game exits, my G29 wheel is sent into some kind of messed up FFB state. How messed up it is also varies, sometimes it's locked hard to the right (maybe left too I forget) and completely unusable until I power cycle the entire setup, reboot PC etc. Another example from last night so it's fresh in my mind still, it went into a state where it was not too strong but still trying to go left or right, depending on whether I'd passed the midpoint. It was still playable though, my friends just wanted 1 more races before the end of the night so I played like that rather than wait to reboot. Oh I cannot be 100% sure but I think it's all or mostly with Daytona 3, and I have a G29, running Teknoparrot latest on Windows 7. I wish I had better information to troubleshoot this, I'll try to keep better track of exactly what is going on when it happens.

    Anyone know how to start a multiplayer race on Wangan? I can get the attract screen to show 4players available but I cannot remember how to actually start a 2 or 4 player game. We just always end up in singleplayer. I just happen to setup Grid earlier tonight, and my "CONTROLLER SETUP" screen definitely had a "Wheel Axis" which I configured and then I tested the game.
