Using Logitech MOMO Force Feedback Racing Wheel with Mac OSX

Hi all,

I just purchased a Logitech MOMO Force Feedback Racing Wheel.

OSX 10.5 does not recognize it and the software that came with it is for PC only so I installed it in XP in boot camp and it works fine but I want to install it in OSX so I can run my Mac Games, ie. Need For Speed.

I read other forums where people say they have the wheel running on a Mac.

I would appreciate any help you can give me.

Thanks and Merry Christmas,
Ralph

Bumping this, as nobody gave the OP an answer. I am curious about getting the MOMO myself, but I need to know if it actually works under OS X 10.5.2.

I noticed that Apple recommends this steering wheel on their game hardware pages, but if I look up this racing wheel on Logitech's website, all I can find is that it is Windows only (also the latest software patch from Logitech - on their own site - is Windows only)...

MOMO on Mac 10.5

Sorry I didn't reply to my own post after I figured it out.

Yes, it works on all of my programs. NFS Carbon for mac and other racing programs under bootcamp.

Thanks,
Ralph

Thanks. That's confirmed then, it works both under OS X and Windows via Bootcamp. I'm off to buy the racing wheel. Woohoo

Sorry I'm a bit late...

I got that Logitech wheel (see pic.), and have had a tremendous amount of fun playing with it on the following:

Power Mac G5, running Tiger.
- Nascar 2003
- F1 CS 2000
- 4 x 4 Evolution II
- Ford Racing 2

Mac Pro '08, running Leopard:
- Need for Speed Carbon
- Colin McRae 2005

Mac Pro '08, running XP SP 2:
- DTM Racer 2
- Richard Burns Rally
- EA Sports F1 2002

Couple of points: In Windows get the latest drivers from Logitech, but for the Mac, just leave it to Mac OS X.
The only issue I have is that some games support FF pretty badly. I have a problem getting the wheel to feel "just right" in Colin McRae 2005 for Mac (tried this on Power Mac G5 Quad aswell as a Mac Pro '08).
But games like Nascar 2003 react tremendously well!!

Would anyone be able to send me the FFB kext file since it's not available any more?

followed all the steps, but the wheel still does not work 100% in F1 2012

Hi

I followed all the steps and tips that I found on how to enable my MOMO wheel on my Mac. It works nicely in 'Auto Sport Driving', but not in F1 2012. The pedals work, but the steering doesn't. When I assign the controls and choose left and right to the left and right turn of the wheel, it only allows me to choose one direction. Also, if I leave the controls to the arrows and choose the steering wheel as an override, it doesn't work.

Any ideas on how to do the setup for F1 2012 ?

Thanks a lot !

Henk

When setting up a wheel you need to make sure your wheel is centered then setup the left and right by turning left and right respectively.

It should appear as X Axis + and X Axis - or something similar.
