    As the title says, I'm looking for a good race driver game with the emphasis on driving, not game, although a balance would be OK. Here's the catch - I have a set of beautiful CH controllers (joystick, throttle, pedals) and I want to be able to use all three in the game to control my vehicle. Is there such a game?
    Thanks,
    Rich :cool:

    A game with no real emphasis on game? Get the Cider port of GTA: San Andreas. You can drive around aimlessly forever.

    BUY the PC version, and then use the Cider port.

    Oh. A real driving game. With good driving physics...

    Well, I'm out. :p

    Yes, I have Boot Camp. But, I'm really looking for a Mac native game. If there is no such thing, as a native OSX game, just say so. I have tried other ported games and they stink - period. EA is the MS of the gaming community, so I'd rather not go there. Is there or is there not a Mac car race game, that can use all my controllers?

    Yup. Just bought a couple copies of the Amrosia holiday bundle, for LAN play. Boy is Redline good for the price.

    Yep, I agree. However, it doesn't seem to use my controllers per my original post. It's what started this thread.

    Rich :rolleyes:

    Well I'm sorry to say I don't think that there are any Mac racing games that support all of your joysticks and pedals, etc. For that I think you will need to go to the PC side.

    OK. I shut off my Mac. Disconnected the pedals and throttle. Re-started and Redline had no problem with setting up my joystick only - which is just fine for now. This experiment will help me decide if I want to invest in a "better" game like Need For Speed Carbon.
    Thanks all,

    Rich :cool:
