This is the 13th game test in our series: The Logitech G27 Racing Wheel for Casual Racing Gamers. Here, I will show you how to set up your G27 racing wheel to play Colin McRae’s DiRT 2.
DiRT 2 was developed and published by Codemasters, and follows the Race Driver series’ look and feel. Racing is rally cross style and takes place on a track.
Solid Tip: Looking for G27 drivers or Logitech Profiler software? Get it here.
To make sure you enjoy your DiRT 2 experience, first make sure your game is patched to version 1.1. If you have the Steam version, this is already done.
Next you should know that, unlike every other game that support the G27, you cannot use the ‘Specific Game Settings’ section of the Logitech Profiler. It simply has no effect. Therefore, you must set your ‘Degrees of Rotation’ in ‘Global Device Settings’ instead. Also, make sure that your pedals are not combined.
Dirt 2 Settings
- Patch your game to 1.1
- Open the Logitech Profiler
- Select Options > Global Device Settings
- Set Degrees of Rotation preference here
- Leave ‘Report Combined Pedals’ Unchecked
- Select New > Profile
- Add dirt2.exe as a new game
- Play DiRT 2 and set preset to G27
- Map the controls to your liking.
