Hi Nomax. Great post. Lots of good points you've made about the PC version is. I was the VERY first person to buy it here in California, and played the hell out of it DESPITE the lack of force feedback. It is indeed very buggy in some areas, but boy is it gorgeous! It don't recall having any issues with the handling though. The way the vehicle handles and drifts are pretty much the same as when I played the game on the original xbox.
Can you elaborate on why you feel the handling is different from Lindbergh SP DX? Is the analog control more responsive on the arcade cabinet or something?
The only thing the PC version does have for some people that is an issue regarding steering, is a deadzone on some wheels. To be honest however, I don't have any deadzone issues on my ECCI 7000 FFB wheel. The steering is good as far as I can tell.
On a side note Nomax, you may be interested to know that there is a person I know, who is one of the administrators over at the Toca Edit forums, who is trying.....again, I cannot emphasize this word enough....t_r_y_i_n_g to hack into the pc version and put in force feedback. I haven't seen him post in his own forum for like three weeks, so I must assume he is very busy attempting to get this done! There are absolutely no guarantees he will succeed but without going into detail, this guy has done some AMAZING things for my steering wheel!
If he is successful, I have vouched to sell my home to him for absolutely nothing
