Hey guys does anyone know how to make controller work like how it was pre patched, Ive tried every different mode and feels like crap, cars understeering too much, Im running times 3-4 seconds slower than what I was.
Does anyone have a workaround or quickfix?


In other words I dont want the full stick movement, the controller minimal movements are hard to get right its a not a steering wheel its a thumb stick, can we have an option only use some of stick travel full travel is wearing the tires out fast, understeering as now lock is full locked.


Or is there a way to recalibrate my stick movements I only want the input to go 3/4 each way left or right

Sorry posted too many times can mods move this to tech please

Ill probably have to modify my controller and put a sleeve in it to ease off the full stick movement

Try a rubber band around stick base to provide resistance

Why you don't change the steering rate in setup. If you increase the steering rate the cars turn better in. And when you reduce the speed sensitivity in controller setup cars will turn better in corners too. Give it a try

Ive got the settings as dumb down as I can, it doesnt help when it goes into full lock with the Ackermann pitarm effect Im just going to band the anologue stick an hope it doesnt utilize the full movement

I'm a little confused. enjoyed reading your tunes so far. But are you saying that when the xbox pad was pretty much just a lock to lock switch you were lots faster than now it,s more linear? Don't see how that is sim like at all? You couldn't drive a real car lie hat, physically even if you wand to. Or have I misunderstood?

Exactly try holding the stick 3/4 of the way and make finer adjustments and then go back to 3/4 of the way its hard work, no you couldnt drive a real car like that all cos thatll be silly driving a car with a controller, however this game wasnt advertised as needing additional hardware such as a steering wheel and pedals...

I couldn't I can't even get round a bend with a controller, that's how I ended up with the TX wheel on XBOX one in the first place:) Always wondered how the controller guys get anywhere near the wheel times, but it's down to how the game interprets input then I get it. But that must mean as much as this and other games, claim to be sims, they aren't really if using controllers, so the times should be in different lists as they don't really compare, almost a different game as far as control is concerned.

Must be bad news when you've adapted to a way of playing. Silly suggestion, but can't you therefore use the DPad as control, or is it something between the analogue stick and DPad you need?

Ill be getting a tx wheel soon just gotta use the nagging technique my wife uses, yeah Idk ive been playing with a controller for around 16-17 years just use to it, but the game use to limited stick imputs now with full input just made it really hard, idk with the controller vs wheel both have their plus and minus's now there's more minus's now such as now have to spend up to $1500 for a simulation rig and new monitor just deciding whether to just go all out n go 3 screens whilst Im at it, lets just say I wont have a dinning table and dining room much longer lol

I look like an F**** idiot, but it is incredible, seriously. It will completely ruin any other gaming for you though. I'm sat in front and to the left of the TV, which I have to have on to setup the race, then I race with my USB headphoines on, with SImvibe shaking me all over the place and when I've finished it seems more unreal to be back at home than in the sim. Don't even need a second screen, got my PC next door with cables through the wall and I only need the TV for a minute or two between races or practice sessions.

It's nothing like that, it's just like your sat in the car, you can lean in to look round the car, stand up and look at your car and watch others go past, a complete 360 degree view in all directions, up/down/left/right. It isn't like you're looking at a screen at all, it's like you are really there, and you're eyesight has lost a little resolution:) It's NOTHING like 3D films. After a few mintes, you'll reach out to touch butons on your dash and wheel that aren't there.
