What are the point of having these? You can't see bugger all out of them as you can't adjust them. Every car in game has this problem. You should be able to just see the side of your car in them, all I can see is 10ft(may be a slight exaggeration) wider than I need. Can we get this sorted as I actually use these things when racing.

Forgive me if I'm wrong, I have seat movement mapped to my buttons allowing me to move my seat backward and forward thus enabling me to see the wing mirrors in most cars. I also have look left and right mapped too so I know who's around me.

This may or may not help you, just a thought!

yeah, after weeks of figuring out what i use and what i dont, i found 4 buttons i could remove to add seat forward/back/up/down. i actually use them more than i thought i would

I do look left and right. I can't adjust seat as I do not have enough buttons on my controller.

Yes, with the many options normally associated with a PC sim, it does make it difficult to map your buttons. It might be worth re-evaluating what you have mapped and what you feel to be necessary.

I'll play around with what I have selected and remap some things, I need change view for online so I can get in at view

I too knocked out handbrake and several other factory mappings to make way for seat fw/bw/up/dwn. Using a T300 has it's difficulties too, just like controller users.

When the wheel turns up it will be easier to map seat movement as it has more buttons I think.

I am nearly at the point of removing Camera view mapping as only drive cockpit, however I have had the unfortunate collision where my bonnet has blocked the view. Realistic...yes but damned infuriating!

Excited then Pirategenius? Wheel is so much better but then you need a rig to put it on! More expense! On the positive side, I'm sure you will enjoy the game even more!

Feel like a right numpty now. Just remapped a few things and I can now move the seat and use the mirrors.

Cheers peeps for that.

It will be good to get a rig again. The Ex misses kept the last one.

Just moved the seat forward and back yet there is no change in the reflection angle. So they are still useless

Hmm... harsh!
I have a really poorly made cheap one, but have just bought a Gameracer rig, can't wait to pick it up this week. My wife does not yet know so we will see how it pans out :friendly_wink:

Pleased the mappings worked for you !! Oops a little too early on my reply!! Shame.

thanks for that. I'll just have to stop using them and use the force instead

i have also had a problem where the game puts me in bumper cam when racing online (even when room is locked to cockpit view) so i don't risk unmapping the camera view button

Interesting, not happened to me thus far but a worthy note. Thanks Slicker!

How do you get rid of handbrake? I thought it was a mandatory button?

Perhaps widening FOV might help?

Press the options button after assigning to your liking, select "options and help" and press circle to be taken back to the main menu.
