The general rule - the older the better. LWFF has limitation in terms of number of forces and the update rate of those forces; older games tend to be more "conservative" with using and updating forces, whereas newer game tend to create a whole bunch of forces ahead of time rather than on-demand. The newer wheels work well with that sort of game behavor, but the older ones work better if their limitations are taken into account - much like the older games used to work.

http://www.wingmanteam.com/discus/messages/4/3480.html has a link to Schumi's Ball Bearing Conversion Kit which includes an excellent guide on disassembly/reassembly of the wheel.

The history is as follows:
4.40 had built-in support for LWFF
4.50 had support removed into a separate package (did you read the readme?)
4.60 had support removed and no separate package was made
As mentioned before, the last release that supports LWFF is 4.50. I don't know what would happen if you had 4.60 and installed the add-on package.
Also, XP has a built-in driver that works. You don't get anything fancy, you can't adjust FF, and it has a few bugs.

thx, tom :)
but i use 4.60 driver supported by logitech in the website, and its working.
1)isn't this an update?
2)if no, is 4.50 a better one?
thx for replying.

LWFF is a really old wheel and has some limitations as far as what kinds of force-feedback it can perform (number of effects, some effect parameters). On Windows 98 (with both serial port and USB port connection). Both NFS:U2 and NFS:MW are quite new games that have not been written with this old hardware in mind, so I am not surprised that things don't work quite as expected.
The last driver that supported LWFF is 4.50 + add-on driver - see the readme in http://www.wingmanteam.com/files/releases/4.50/ - and no further updates are expected.

sorry for repeating this message again, i guess i didnt put it in the wright place.
1)i finally got my wff red work under win xp,and all the new games supported for xp r working fine and the forcefeed back works fine too, but it some times shuts down and never apear again, ispecially with need for speed underground 2 and the wheel settings in the game turns off and i cant enter it to control the feedback and its range, why?
2)also when i turn on the force feedback in need for speed most wanted the game freez and the right led of the wheel turns off, eventhough when i put all the forcefeed back settings in the logitech profiler on 2% only, why?
note: it sometimes make the same thing using nfs ug2.
is this due to the driver that i use supported from logitech website "lgs460enu", if yes is thr a newer one.
or because it used to be with serial port, and i changed it to usb.
plz i need answers......
