Okay well i just bought a microsoft steering wheel for my xbox360 and it says it has forcefeedback on it but i have no idea what it is, so can anyone tell me what it is and how to turn it on or off.

Well, I dont own an Xbox nor that steering wheel...but I know what Force Feedback is...
...basically it vibrates and makes it feel realistic, the wheel.
For example, when you hit the wall or slide...the wheel turns or vibrates.
It's actually good to have it on, makes more real...but if you want it off, there should be an option in the games controller/wheel settings.

I always thought it was feedback from the wheels, like not letting you turn as easily at higher speeds than you would have at lower speeds...
Sep 16, 2007, 2:45 PM
yeah thats right, if you spin out at high speed, the wheel will pull back and forth as the car spins.

I believe you gotta plug it into the wall (for the completely wired experience). That what i heard from someone on this forum

i'm confused, why is he apologizing to me?
Sep 16, 2007, 5:28 PM
I got one for my 360 about a month ago. It means for example, that when you turn the wheel at high speeds it will resist more than when you are stationary, and it will turn when the car fishtails etc...
You can also only have it on when its plugged in the wall. Although it can be fake at times, its better than without it.

As said before, force feedback is a wonderful little feature that can make using the wheel a much more rewarding experience.
In order to use the force feedback on the microsoft wheel, you must have power coming from an outlet. That means you can't just be running on batteries; you have to plug it into the wall. From there, it will turn on automatically on games that support it.
If for whatever reason you want to turn it off (I can't imagine why), you can go into the game options menu, check under control settings or something related, and turn the force feedback off. Games that do support force feedback should allow you to do this. If that doesn't work, then unplug the power source from the wall and run it off the battery pack which mounts on the right side of the wheel.
Hope that helps.
