    Linux kernel module for Thrustmaster T300RS and T248

    -You talk about the Fanatec CSL Elite driver, but you don't mention the Thustmaster projects. Some years ago there are a basic driver (without ffb) called TMDRV, but some months ago there are two new projects that enables this basic feature for simracers. This projects are for the T150 and T300RS wheels. I would also like to say that you don't talk about the importance for Linux simracers of the work of u/berarma with his great and complete new-lg4ff driver. In my humble opinion, the new Fanatec and Thrustmaster projects would not exist without this driver. In addition to putting the code on the table, he has shown that there are many Linux Gamers who are wishing they could play their car games in the same conditions as Windows.

  • new-lg4ff

    Experimental Logitech force feedback module for Linux

    PyLinuxWheel is compatible with the kernel driver and new-lg4ff, but if you want to configure the extra functionality that new-lg4ff gives, is best to use OverSteer as is an awesome program created by the same person that developed new-lg4ff.

  • Scout APM

    Less time debugging, more time building. Scout APM allows you to find and fix performance issues with no hassle. Now with error monitoring and external services monitoring, Scout is a developer's best friend when it comes to application development.

  • t150_driver

    Linux driver for Thrustmaster T150 Steering Wheel USB


  • vdrift

    VDrift source code

    Good and amazing post. Thanks for talk about my outdated post. Really new-lg4ff and the work on Proton and Wine changes a lot of things on the simracing on Linux. I would like to point some things on your words: -About Vdrift and Speed Dreams: the first project is almost abandoned, and only there are some minor corrections on main code. There are no new features. About the game resources (cars and tracks), in the last months an user create two new tracks for the game, Algarve and Baku.

  • Proton

    Compatibility tool for Steam Play based on Wine and additional components

    -GRID 2019, some time ago, Codemasters delete the DirectX11 executable, and now only works with DX12. In the last versions of proton has problems, but some months ago, It worked well thanks to the inclusion of VKD3D on Proton.
