Racing wheel to control Big Box?

Recommended Posts

I am new to Launchbox and I am considering purchasing Big Box.

I am building a racing cab and I want to be able to control the frontend with the racing wheel only. Shuffle through games left and right by turning wheel, selecting games with the gas pedal, and mapping other buttons on the wheel like Esc, etc...

Is this possible with Big Box? I have not seen very much info on this via Google and would like confirmation it works before purchasing.

Thanks for any assistance.

You might be able to use a wheel that has a d-pad or some other extra controller functionality in it.

yeah that maybe possible my Logitech G27 has a dpad and buttons on it but I have no clue if it works in LB.

I just tried with my Logitech Driving Force GT from 2007, it doesn't work.

A newer Driving Wheel with XInput would probably work. But i don't know about analog inputs (e.g. "selecting games with the gas pedal"), I don't know if BigBox has support for that.

Thank you all for your responses. Hopefully this will be in a future update.
