Hi Gerald ,i'm Gonzalo,i have been testing a lot of games with wine in

The result of this work is :

Games working with force feedback in linux

*Vdrift --native


**LFS*  ---patch
*GPL   ---*patch*
Need for Speed Most Wanted* ---patch
*4x4 Evolution*
*Colin McRae Rally 05
**Need for Speed 4 High Stakes*
*Need for Speed II*
*Need for Speed III*: *Hot Pursuit*

The game *  **Need for Speed Most Wanted *work with your patch,is a new game
Without the patch it haven´t force feedback.I was testing with the demo
game, it is here


for download.

If you want ,we can test its better,if you have a preferred game in the list
we can begin  with this one.
Some of them give me errors with joystick symbols not defined,and clues for
improve the wine emulator.

If you want, i can say you how install the games,or send you the messages
that display the game when don't work the force feedback.

Thank you
