    Hello!
    I've recently been gathering parts and information on building my own FFB Steering Wheel, as a bit of an engineering challenge for myself.

    I was wondering if someone could give me some guidance/explanation on which software to use? I have an arduino leonardo, which I have read is not as good as some of the STM32 boards?
    I have downloaded and messed around with the RFR Wheel Configuration software by AI-Wave, but it is, from what I have read a little outdated now.
    I am struggling to understand which is the most common/best software to use, and any help with that would be greatly appreciated! :)

    Thanks!
    P.s I apologise if this is in the wrong place, this is my first post here!

    Hello there..
    I have the same experienced, and build my first diy wheel using leonardo. but right now upgrade it to stm32.
    I'm using EMC pro software, and actually you can use EMC pro with the leonardo, but it's not supported anymore in the latest update.
    so I think, you should use stm32 instead, because you can will get full support and it have a lot of features and more simple. I think this is the best software out there, and it still got support from the developer.
    you can go to this link for more info.

    https://www.facebook.com/EMCDeveloper

    and you can search a lot of tutorial on youtube.
    Cheers!

    I forgot to tell you, you can still use your leonardo as a GIMX adapter, so the DIY wheel can be use on console (PS4) or on the game that only support the official wheel (logitech or thrustmaster) ex: forza horizon 4/5
