The buttons of my G25 don't seem to map properly within a game's mapping control panel.
I just got the G25 steering wheel for Christmas and I'm having problems setting it up.The steering wheel seemed to work okay with my 2 PC games: "GTR 2" and "Need for Speed: ProStreet. The one thing it was missing was the force feedback. After doing some internet searches, I found these 2 pages that both indicate that I should run a utility called ClrCalib and reinstall the latest logitech gaming software fpr Vista.(I restarted my computer after all this.)
Once I did this the Force Feedback feature worked, but then I discovered an issue in both of my racing games. When I try to adjust the button mappings within either game's control settings, the games didn't recognize many of the buttons. For example, when I pressed down the accelerator pedal, the pedal doesn't get registered - instead a different button was registered. When I clicked the brake pedal within the game's button mapping control panel, again the brake pedal doesn't get registered - instead the same wrong button gets registered. The funny thing is, if I leave the mapping alone to the default settings, the accelerator pedal and all the other buttons work just fine during game play.
I checked Logitech's game controller properties and the accelerator pedal and all the other buttons register properly when I press them.
How do I get it so the button mapping control panels of various game recognize the proper buttons?

inside alot of games you can change the mapping of certain buttons or axis. Also, alot of games have presets for certain wheels (I think GTR2 does). Make sure you set these to the correct values in the game, not the logitech software.
For individual tweaks, you can create a profile in the logitech profiler, select the exe for the game, and customize it this way. I personally have had mixed results with this, but it seems to be working for alot of people, so maybe I'm doing something wrong. However, it does work in rFactor right now, so that's a small victory I guess.
Hope this helps out a little bit.
Also, one other thing, if there are certain things you want to always be set (force feedback, degrees of motion, etc), you change those in the global settings. For the individual games, it's under specific game settings (this is where I've been trying to reduce the degrees of motion for games that dont support 900).

If I get it right, prostreet has proper force feedback. It is something that I never feel, but really wanted. How can I get any clarification about it? I have XP, Momo and Prostreet but no FF.
