Hello,

I`m thinking about purchasing an open sim wheel kit. Only I`m not able to find if osw is compatible with GPL or NR2003.
Does anyone know if this is going to work?

Thanks!

Grand Prix Legends FFB was made by Immersion, have to assume same for N2003.
They made the FFB for Grand Turismo, for which the DFGT wheel was made, which works very well with GPL.

So just a guess it will work as Immerision seems to be one of or the one major player in FFB.

Thanks for your reply, I`m reading in to this. Ffb is read from an STM32F4 discovery board wich has MMOs software on it. It connect to windows as a general hid device. So I think GPL and NR2003 wil see it fine. The only thing I don`t know if the ffb effect wil translate good to the wheel.

more information can be read here http://ascher-racing...el-Tutorial.pdf

But if there are no gpl or nr2003 direct drive users I think it will be difficult to know it will work for sure.

When a 1200 euro steering wheel isn`t compatible with GPL or NR2003 then I will have to pass.

On a small budget $.

I've been slowly, very slowly, gathering components for an OSW

(wire and small parts for the drive etc).;

looking for used servo motors at this time,

I'm following your post with interest and have noticed your questions

at Xsim. :goodpost:

Well I`ve taken the plunge, and ordered a kit from Tomo at simracingbay. A really nice guy, it should arrive on monday.
Xsimulater.net is a great community, the have confirmed that NR2003 is working well. It think GPL will do ok also then.
I`m curious if brr`s ffb patch http://srmz.net/inde...?showtopic=4226 will help the feeling with osw..

I will keep you updated!

Have just reinstalled GPL, but am not getting any FFB with my OSW.
Just wondering how the OP went with this?

Check core.ini to confirm FFB is enabled?

Do any of you have the Reimer config? We have one here but it has a cable with 3 black leads and we have no idea how to connect them ������

Hi Remco,

there aren't many DD-wheel- drivers around here, I guess.

So why not contact Dennis Reimer directly. He's on facebook and otoh still technical stuff moderator over at virtualracing.org's forum. If you don't have access there, simply ask your colleague Svend (congrats on your new job, btw.).

Hey man, thanks for your answer. I got a hold of Dennis and he gave us directions to hook up the motor. It then took us 15 hours to get it working but now it's all good. OSW firmware/drivers/intel is hard to find, especially Lenze settings since most people have Mige motors.

But it's working now and I hear it's pretty good!

Yeah, thanks man! I'm working full time at Heusinkveld now and it's just perfect. I make sure everything is in house and ready for the production to take place and I manage the floor so to speak. But it never feels like work because it's all simracing related! And I get to build simulators and computers and basically that's my job. I never have to 'work' so to speak. Plus we're all old friends over there so, again, never feels like work! :lol:
