Hey guys.. I've just tried Project Cars, and its impossible to play with keyboard.
I just can not steer left or right on any higher speed than 20 or 30 km/h, the car just go dead straight.
Tried to change settings, steering sensitivity, with no luck.

Please help me...thanX

I've tried just to test settings without connecting my wheel and it works fine. Are you sure that you have the mapping to the corect keys?

I don't want to sound horrible but really what are you doing trying to play the game on a keyboard is there a reason you don't have a controller or why you can't use one?
I personally use a wheel setup and i know many can't do that or justify the prices involved or have the space required but USB controllers are super cheap just get a controller.

If you are struggling to get a controller and do want one i'll send you one of my spare controllers i don't use if you pay the shipping cost.

but seriously... keyboard for a sim racing game is just a massive nono... controller at the minimum so you have some half decent control while playing.

I just tried keyboard.
Changed speed sensitivity to 50 and finished 7th in 5 lap race @ Watkins Glen against full grid 20% AI. It could have been the podium. I crashed once. And this was first try. With real assists all damage and wear.
Is it playable. Yes, very much.
Can you be competitive with keyboard - I can't tell. Probably, with setting up cars and getting into the flow:)

There were people through the development played on nothing but keyboard.....

I think you are all missing my point here... I figured its a racing SIM and posting about problems playing a RACING SIM with a keyboard makes no sense to me at all, like saying... i tried to eat soup today with a fork and i found it very difficult.
The minimum requirement for soup is a spawk. Spoon it, Spork it but don't Fork it.

I must have missed the season of the British GT Championship when all the drivers got into the car and strapped in their Corsair Keyboards.

Must sat that choosing a program/game that stamps it selv, as a simulator, and trying to usle a keyboard makes no sence at all

PM me your address and i'll send you a controller.
So long as you promise me you won't ever play a racing game with a keyboard again ;-)

OK, keyboard time.

The trick to keyboard is - at least for me - to go into the advanced menus, and there is a setting that allows for the computer to use a "corrective steering assist." What this does is it prevents snap oversteer by simulating the corrective steering that would normally be done by the end-user if the end-user had a wheel. It also reduces the tendency for "snap-steering" inputs and makes steering behave more naturally. It is in the advanced settings menu for when you set up things such as clutch deadspot, brake deadspot, etc., in the keyboard setup menu. I will look more into it tomorrow. I also use mode 3 for steering (out of the three modes available), as it feels the best on keyboard. Again, I will do a more detailed guide tomorrow and post it.
