    Can anyone recommend a steering wheel that supports force feedback on macOS, specifically for the game F1 2016? Does either the Logitech G29 or G920 work?

    I went on Feral's website (who did the Mac port) here http://support.feralinteractive.com/en/mac-linux-games/f12016/faqs/wheels/ and they note the following:

    ...they say "many" manufacturers, not ALL, so I'm wondering if there's any that DO support force feedback on Mac. Logitech DOES provide a G29/G920 driver for Mac.

    My local PC World store is selling the G29 for £180, so tempted, hmmm :)

    All I can say is that my Logitech G27 works perfectly in Feral games, including F1 2016, and has Force Feedback.
    I have the old Logitech FFB kext installed, but not sure if the newer games need it. Older games do though.

    After doing a little digging, turns out that Feral embed FFB steering wheel drivers directly into the games themselves for popular wheels. I tried my ageing Logitech Driving Force GT with F1 2016, and it works perfectly. I tried it with Dirt 3: Complete Edition, and no FFB support in that one unfortunately. Hoping it works with the upcoming Dirt Rally Mac port.

    As I hinted at previously, you need to install the Logitech FFB kext for older games.

    Yep.
    But I understand that if this is new to users, then more info is required:

    1. Search for "Kext_Utility".
    2. Search for "LogitechForceFeedback.kext".
