Arqade is a question and answer site for passionate videogamers on all platforms. It's 100% free, no registration required.

I dunno if someone has ever thought of this before, but Googling about it has turned up absolutely nothing. I'd like to be able to use my Logitech Momo Racing wheel pedals as extra buttons in some games. Namely, bind some panic abilities to them in a MMO game, and in general, just have something accessible just by the thump of my foot.

Another use would be to bind it as a push to talk key for ventrilo\mumble\etc. Any help appreciated!

I would investigate some form of macro for the 'button' so pressing it initiated a macro of sorts. Pressing keys for you. –  DavidYell Mar 16 '11 at 16:50
    
Times like this make me miss the ability to reference the "How to PVP with a steering wheel" WoW thread... –  Grace Note Mar 16 '11 at 16:52

@grace Very very strongly considered posting it as an answer... –  LessPop_MoreFizz Mar 16 '11 at 16:57
    
@LessPop You actually saved it? You rock! Now, they exist in some form of posterity! Hidden (as you deleted it), but AWESOME. –  Grace Note Mar 16 '11 at 16:58
    
@grace I can undelete if you want... I was somewhat uncertain about whether I should post it as the very first answer here... –  LessPop_MoreFizz Mar 16 '11 at 17:07

This should be able to do it: http://glovepie.org/glovepie_download.php

I used it to link a nintendo wii controller to a pc a while back. Its basically a bridge between any sort of input device and a pc. You tell it how to interpret different commands it receives from the device. Exceptionally versatile. Will take a little time to figure out though.

Don't let the enviro/political ramble on the site throw you off. It really is a pretty good product and its free.

Sounds good, +1. I'll test this in a few days and come accept your answer if it works! –  red Mar 17 '11 at 8:44

If you're on OSX, you can try Joystick Mapper. I've successfully mapped input from a Logitech Driving Force wheel to keyboard output.
