I forgot how bad these console ports can be with wheels.

What about TDU? Is there a steering calibration menu? Is it jerky with a wheel like NFS?
NFS:MW is the game you like.
It has ALL elements you mentioned.

For racing wheels I don't have one so I can't tell you.

Can you drive from city roads to highways and exit highways in NFS? what about TDU?

Is there a demo?
haha.......If your gear box is set to automatic, I believe most of the racing games out there will shift to reverse gear when you press break, this including TDU.

Yes you can drive from city roads to highways and exit highways in NFS:MW.

Disclaimer: I'm not promoting NFS:MW nor saying post-NFS V is a better game than TDU.

With my 8800 I was able to activate both in-game. Make sure AA is to application controlled and yes you have to force 16AF in the driver because the game doesnīt have a setting for it. If it still doesnīt work, post your driver version because it might be a bug. The drivers 97.02 and 97.92 donīt have this problem. Hope this helps.

Nice game. I like that kind of car games.
Made an ingame footage of maxed out graphics with one of my favorite cars in this game.

Heh, I wouldn't know. I can't get that far with mine. I received my e-mail today telling me I'd get the boxed copy soon and apologizing for the digital version. I feel bad for the guy in charge of that. He was so excited about it before it launched. It's too bad it turned out like it did.

They took the download down. It's no longer available for purchase. Supposedly it will be back up and fixed 'shortly'. However, they've said that since yesterday, so who knows how long 'shortly' really is.

I didn't contact anyone. I think they just contacted me b/c of my download.

Here's a blurb from the e-mail. At least they're handling the issue really well (imo, anyway).

Quote:
We are working on the solution and Test Drive Unlimited will be available shortly via digital download. In the meantime, customers affected by this postponement will receive the boxed product of Test Drive Unlimited in the mail within one week, a 75% off certificate valid towards your next purchase on Atari.com and a $3.95 refund for product insurance, if purchased as well as still being able to download the game once it is back online. We will do better.
