Here are my settings for F1 2012 The Game with a Logitech G27 steeringwheel. I must say that out of the box the steering is pretty good already. Especially compared to last years dramatic default settings. I've added a screenshot with my ingame and profiler settings. Hope it helps. Love x 1; Sep 21, 2012 #2. Graham Laing.
Preface While FFB and racing wheels do not pertain only to Mac racing fans, I am directing this toward them as us Mac Racing Game Fanatics don't have many choices in the steering wheel department if we want to utilize steering wheels to their fullest potential especially with Force Feedback. Force Feedback is essential in my opinion if you want to get that last tenth out of your lap times and have the most realistic experience possible. Note: Also realize that not every button on every Logitech wheel is supported under MacOS either. A while ago, Feral Interactive created the “FreeTheWheel” application that unlocked access to all of these buttons along with 900 degrees of rotation, but it negates the FFB kext needed in many of the older games. But recently Feral Interactive has added support for FULL wheel configurations with Grid Autosport and F1 2016 in which FFB works along with all of the buttons without the need for the kext!!! Not All USB Wheels Are Created Equally For MacOS There are many USB racing wheels that will work in MacOS.
There are many Mac racing fans who use racing setups varying from a steering wheel clamped to a desk in front of their monitors to more elaborate setups using racing seats such as those from Playseats or Simroom’s VR3, which is what I use. Getting the most out of your wheel is something that Windows players have enjoyed for a very long time while Mac racers have been lacking ever since Immersion introduced FFB into Mac racing games back in the early 2000’s. Hey, I still have a PowerMac G5 that runs F1 CS 2000, VGP2 and Total Immersion Racing with a Logitech G27! Many USB wheels work on MacOS just fine and, for the most part, will give you better results than a keyboard or gamepad even without the use of FFB.

But wheels outside of the Logitech brand will not have the opportunity to allow FFB. This is due to the fact that companies like Fanatec and Thrustmaster will not bother to add FFB Support for their amazing wheels while Logitech created an actual driver long ago for their wheels that, while no longer being included in versions of MacOS after 10.6, can still be installed on everything up to 10.12.5.
Now, Feral Interactive have been awesome enough to start incorporating FFB and full button support directly into their more recent games, Grid Autosport and F1 2016, without having to install the Logitech FFB kext. But if you want to play older games like F1 2013, Grid, Grid 2, Dirt 2/3, etc., which are all still great games for MacOS, you will still need to install the kext. Logitech Wheels I Have Personally Tested For FFB Over The Years G27 - Best wheel for Mac in my personal opinion G25 - A lot like the G27, but older and not as nice looking IMO Momo Force - Works well and is quite a bit cheaper than the G series wheels Driving Force GT - Again, works well, but the FFB is a bit weaker To Kext Or Not To Kext There are now and have been in the past, great racing games released for the Mac contrary to what many may tell you. Yes, many of them were released many months or even years after their PC counterparts, but released nonetheless. These are some of my personal favorites that have FFB coded into them that work well with the Logitech Wheels I listed earlier either using the Logitech Kext installed or without it. No Kext Needed And Full Wheel Support 1.
Grid Autosport Kext Needs To be Installed 1. F1 2012 and 2013 2. Mac is the acronym for multimedia access controller. Dirt 2 and 3 3.
Virtual Grand Prix 3 4. Grid 1 and 2 5. Auto Sport Driving 6. IRacing Upgrading Your G27 The Logitech G27 has been my go-to wheel for my Mac Racing needs for many years and is still a great wheel. The best wheel for the Mac platform by a long shot in my opinion. It also provides FFB along with a few other wheels from Logitech. There are those racing game fanatics, like myself, who are always looking for something to add to their setups and unfortunately, we have very little to look forward to.
But thanks to the efforts of people like Mateusz Karpeta of Polsimer, there are G27 wheel rim upgrades that are fairly simple to install and work great. His “F27” mod is a beautiful wheel rim that simply replaces the original G27 wheel and the Mac has no idea it has been changed. Works perfectly and makes the wheel look much more race-engineered, especially if you are an F1 fan. I ordered the F27 and it is quite amazing. Looks beautiful and feels like an actual racing wheel. The lights are big and bright too making them much easier to see without having to look down. I ordered the Alcantara grips instead of the Leather grips along with the 6 buttons being red to match the rest of the G27.
