Racing Wheel question
« on: August 06, 2004, 07:15:10 AM »
If you get a Racing Wheel with 270 degree rotation would you be able to turn more than a controller in racing games???

well.. no... You'll be able to have better controll on the amount of turn you use on your vehicle. What with the analogue stick's smaller distance compared to the amount of turn you can have on the wheel.

turn the wheel to maximum fastness, august is drifto month, takumi drifts paper cups

You can't change the coding of a game with a steering wheel no.

Then why did Logitech make a wheel for Grand Turismo 4 that will turn 900 degrees?

Sigh, you don't seem to be able to grasp this concept. The greater the radius the wheel can turn, the less amount the wheels actually turn per degree. Meaning you have greater controll over how much you turn the wheels exactly.

Yes but you see in Grand Turismo games you usually can't turn enough to make a turn so I think that they made the wheel so that you could turn a lot better. Otherwise there would be no point in making a wheel that turns 900 degrees because it would just spread out the controller's turning which would be a waste of time. In other words I need a wheel that will give me more turning.

"In other words I need a wheel that will give me more turning."

Oh...my...God... >_<

Look here, please...The control is set through the coding of a game, and CANNOT be altered with a racing wheel...As DrZ said, you only get MORE PRECISE turning, not MORE turning...

I had NO IDEA that you have to SLOW DOWN A CAR TO TAKE TURNS and A STEERING WHEEL WILL HELP ME TURN MORE BECAUSE IT HAS MORE DEGREES!!1111

Crash -  S-U-P-E-R is known for his uber levels of sarcasm and joking arround so dont get confused lol.

As for 4 Swords vs ToS thats a hard  one since i have both and couldnt resist passing either one up but thats a poll then .  But I'll help you anyway  if you want a real fun 2-D experiance that requires connectivity with mutiplayer(all players need a GBA for multiplayer but single player can be played with standard controller), sometimes chaotic multi-player, is sort of short (has 24 levels which a level can be completed in 15- 30 min) and has high replay value go for 4-swords.  

If you want a really long immersive RPG with a nice story to it and real time battles, has up to 80 hours of gameplay get Tales of Symphonia. I like graphics of both games and i enjoyed both alot (im not done with ToS but am really enjoying it). Ultimately pick em up both. As for a single pick up you have to descide what type of gameplay you would like more, LOZ:Four Swords also comes with a free GBA-GCN cable.

I heard if you plug a Daytona USA arcade machine into a NES with Spy Hunter, you can steer all the way to the moon. Big wheels and insane turbo lol's.

GUYS, GUYS, THERE'S SOMETHING ON TV!

That's a lie and you know it. Ketchup is the exception because it doesn't want to leave the bottle, let alone go fast.

I'm very glad this thread is here, everybody be quiet! I have a question for the Internets. Like, okay. Like okay totally. I got a steering wheel for my Saturn about a month back, right. It was pretty rad playing Daytona and Out Run with it. I was all "I'm crashing into things"

So I though, 'hey'. And got lunch. Next week? BAM, I returned from the kitchen to resume my game of Super Rabbit Face on the C64. It's the game about surfing, you know. On the moon. So then I hurled my bedroom out the window and plugged the steering wheel into the GameCube's AV port. Then I slammed in a copy of Gran Turismo 4: Super Demo Disc 2 and it DIDN'T TURN ALL THE WAY AROUND. I wanted my car to TURN AROUND, but did it? Nooooooooo.

Solution please.

You big silly you need to put the disc in UPSIDE-DOWN!  Then you need to have memory data from Halo, Universal Studios, and Frogger on the SAME MEMORY CARD...The game you are playing will lol so hard it will bounce out of your system out of your window...You must jump after it within 2 seconds of it's suicide dash to catch it before it hits the ground.  But once you do that a dog(lol Sam) will grab the disc out of your hands and will turn in Gigabowser...You must defeat Gigabowser(sam) in exactly 6.6 seconds using only your down+b move and you will get a secret bonus code from Krystal who falls from the sun...Use that code on the unplugged drifto wheel and it will scream BAZOOOOOMS and now you can turn the wheel more
