Is anyone else having issues using an xbox one controller? I went into settings and all the settings are defaulted and show left thumb stick for steering and triggers for gas and brake but when I play the game the only thing that works is gas, brake, and the Y button. Nothing else works. I closed the game and started overwatch and the controller worked fine. I also opened ghost recon wildlands and the controller worked fine again. I reopen project cars and the same thing nothing works. Even in the main menu when it says to use the bumpers to navigate menus it doesn't work. In the main menu I can only use the right analog stick to move a cursor and that's it.

Is anyone else having these problems?

Try going into controllers, select keboard, go back to main menu (so the game can save your setting) and get back to the controllers to select the proper XBX input and try again... Is a way to "reset" the iniput method.

I just tried that and I got the message about would I like to overwrite the controls.
I chose yes then backed out went back in and picked Xbox 1 control and it still wouldn't work.

Is the Xbox controller detected and functioning as expected in the Windows "USB / Game Controllers" section??

the PC reads and sees the controller. I just used it in 3 different games and it work perfectly. The controller is plugged directly into the PC not a usb hub or anything.

last time I check with the one controller (connected via USB) it was fine, but that was a few months back (I prefer the 360 controller) - and I won't be firing the game up to play it for several hours...

One question.. is this Steam being a pain in the arse and getting in the way.
Have a look at Steam -> Settings-> Controller -> General Controller Settings

untick all the options (if I recall correctly)

Yup you are right

It turns out it was steam's controller settings were out of whack. I put them to default and launched the game and it worked.
The other games I tried were non steam games.
Thanks for the quick responses and reply.

this was also affecting the T100 wheel and is now resolved from another thread (http://forum.projectcarsgame.com/showthread.php?51409-T100-PC-Compatibility), so it may affect any devices having issues, not just the Game Pad.

Still on the Xbox controller...vibration works when shifting, braking, accelarating and riding curbs, but I am not getting any vibration when I move the left stick (driving stick), not on straights, no around corners either. High speed corners feel really bizarre without any vibration. Is this the way it is supposed to work or am I missing something? Thanks!

Problem also with lack of Vibration/FFB on Xboxone controller (PC)
its slightly improved after pressing num pad 6 and num pad 3 on keyboard but its still way too low with very little in the way of useful feedback for the player when under-steering or over-steering and also turning vibration up to 100 in game doesn't help.

Means as this is a sticky, could the mods ask the development team, if there is a problem with the vibration / rumble with the xbox controller on Pc, as others have mentiond in the forums, there is no feedback to the controller when turning or going over bumps, just seems rather flat.

The vibration issue on XBX controller is being investigated internally, not sure about the status of it because is something that affects a portion of users and not everyone

Agreed, its not a game breaker by all means but it is a tad annoying , really do need feedback from tracks and steering.

Possibly there wasn't enough time to include an update in the latest patch, fingers crossed for the next update.

Right Ok, just fired up Pcars 1 and the rumble / vibration is in a different league to Pcars 2, the differnece is totally noticeable, something is definetly wrong with the vibrtation / rumble feedback in Pcars 2, hope the developers fire up Pcars 1 and feel the differnce between the two.

Yes I often go back to PC1 to feel how good the rumble feels.

You only have to put the controller on the desk....drive into something and compare how poor the rumble is in PC2 compared to PC1.

OddTimer
13-10-2017, 21:38
yeah, the other day I went back to PC1 on the xbox one and what a difference!! I think the best rumble is Automobilista. They updated the game in September and there is 3 presets for rumble, it is excellent, better the PC1 as well. SMS should have a look at AMS for 'inspiration'!

Well I've just purchased an Xbox One controller to see if there was any improvement over my 360 controller.

Both controllers rumble under braking and gear change.....I feel as though the 360 maybe a little stronger.

With the Xbox One there now is some slight rumble over rumble strips and when off track. On the 360 I couldn't even feel any rumble strips or when I was slightly on the grass (car would bounce but no rumble).

There is on occassion with the 'One' a constant rumble on the track but not always in the same place. Unfortunately this does not increase when running over a rumble strip or on the grass so again no feedback from the tyres as to where you are.

So there is some improvement with the 'One' but hopefully whoever is in charge of the rumble knob at SMS will turn it up a couple of notches when they get time ;)

Apologies to ask again about the lack of vibration using the Xbox controller but other than the reply from Aldo we have had no further response (unless I've mised it) which has also being asked about in the 'General Forum'.

Aldo when you say it's been experienced by some users and not others, do you know if the Xbox users are OK and it's when the controller is used on a PC?

Thanks in advance for any information.

Hi guys, I am having a similar but peculiarly different XB1 gamepad issue in PC2 on my PC. Since the last game update my gamepad randomly stops working when I enter the online lobbies section. At first it happened infrequently but it has now become unplayable. The controller will work in and beyond the lobby now only once every 10+ attempts. Each time I have to reboot the PC2 in order to get it working again as it continues to be deactivated even when exiting the online lobbies.

Now I have tried absolutely everything suggested but still no solution. I have combed all the forums and looks like thus far no one else has this issue. Hardware is good with no issues in other games.

Additionally another quirk that happened after the 1.2 patch was the random scrambling of my transmission settings going from auto to manual when entering a session.

If anyone can help solve this I would be extremely grateful as I am getting increasingly frustrated with not being able to play. Note also, it ONLY happens when attempting to go into the online multiplayer content.

Well I did a bit of tinkering using the Steam control settings and have got a little more rumble using that.

I found this via Steam community.
In theory it looks awesome,in reality it aint working on my Rig.I have followed it down to every detail but when I launch game I have zero pad input.
If anybody figures this Id be very thankful to know how its done,it could be the ideal answer for controller/pad user's.

See post 7. in this thread

deselected all controllers in options, do not add them, even for big picture mode (xbox controller work fine in both big picture mode and in game without being in the Steam controllers setting)

Im aware of this pal,but looking at the video of his settings via Steam we have more throttle/brake and steering response with them settings.
Im currently chatting to the lad who posted it and we are trying to resolve it.
If we just leave it as it is all works fine,but if this Steam carry on works all 'could' be sweet..

Appreciate the quick reply Remco Van Dijk.

Yes it was the first thing I did.

PCars1 has excellent rumble / vibration.
I have tried the demo on my PS4 and again it has strong rumble / vibration.
Unfortunately it's very weak on PCars2.

Not sure what else I can try.

I think we maybe in the minority (PC Gamepad users). Gamepad users on Xbox and PS4 may have a good feel. I know the demo did when I tried it on my PS4.

Precisely the game is not cheap, +season pass. Specify, only Steering wheell, with controlador to half work. Then I would see if I'm interested buy it for pc.
I have hope that it will be solved.

I tried cable and neither did
Maybe with Windows 7?

Ian this is my experience using a gamepad on a PC with PCars.

PCars1 had excellent vibration / rumble, you could really feel the rumble strips also hitting something solid you certainly felt it.

PCars2 with Xbox360 pad very weak. You can feel a little gear change and braking. Very little to no rumble strip vibration. Very weak feeling when hitting something solid.

Xbox One pad a little better than the 360.....some vibration / rumble on corner strips.

I tried the demo on my PS4 and the rumble / vibration was excellent.

So I assume that console users with a gamepad are fine it's just the PC users.

If you mean for rumble, yes it should be more pronounced, again this is based on what was in the last test build a few days back.. in fact I had to turn the vibration down to 15 in game as it's now completely over the top for my tastes.. so there will probably be a shed load of complaints about rumble being OTT now! - note I use a 360 controller, not the Xbox One version

For me a little better with gear change and braking. Still can't particularly feel the rumble strips or when on the grass. I'm comparing this with PCars1 which is still way better for me re the rumble.
