Couple of questions due to the DIY USB Adapter Guide

Post by BreeziTV »

On the CP2102 adapter, will any of them work? Cause there's one for only a dollar.

On the Teensy 2.0 board is it just connecting it to the aforementioned adapter?


I know this sounds dumb but this is my first tech creation thingy and I really want to be cautious. If anyone's curious of what wheel I have for this, here it is.

Topic moved to discussion section.

Yes, the CP2102 should work fine, but I would advise buying a CP2104 which can transmit at higher speed.

And yes, the only thing to do is to connect both parts. To avoid issues, either get a Teensy 2.0 with pins, or solder wires.

Your wheel is a Logitech Driving Force. There is an official configuration for it, it is named LogitechDrivingForce_G29.xml.

The main limitation this wheel has is the turning range which is only 200 degrees. You'll have to set in-game wheel range to something close to this value. Not sure this is possible in all games. You may want to get a second hand Logitech Driving Force GT which has an adjustable max turning range of 900 degrees.
