Logitech Formula Force Drivers for Windows 10 64 Bit (x64)



Almost 20 years on, the Logitech Wingman Formula Force still works in windows. Released around the time USB was just arriving on the market, these robust wheels date from back in 1998.

Logitech discontinued driver development in 2006, however Saitek did release a 64bit driver based on the Immersion SDK. A primitive Force feedback design by today's standards, but it still works with most modern games.

This driver was adapted by Sly_North from the below Saitek source. 

To breath a new bit of life into the Logitech Wingman Formula Force, here is a Windows 10 Driver (signed) that will permit installation into Win10 x64 bit without the need to disable driver signing.



Enjoy!

PrimalForms CE - Community Edition (Free)

Sapien make some great tools and this is no exception. PrimalForms Community Edition is a Free version that has limited functionality.

I've used this for several OSS projects and it covers the essentials. The link on Sapien sites no longer works so below is a alternative link I've found. This version is 1.0.9.0 but an version 1.0.10 was released also according to the blog. Only obvious change is it adds a start page.


Update: Unfortunately Sapien or one of their representatives has mistakenly slapped DMCA on this link for the free edition and I've removed it, rather than fight it.  You can certainly find it via Google or ask the right person ;-)
