Driving in 3rd person view the camera just keeps moving to the position that looks directly down on the car, I use the right “look” stick to return it but it keep randomly snapping back to that view.

In cockpit view the driver keeps looking right up, same as above I nudge the rick stick in the opposite direction to stop it but it just does it again.

Controller seems fine it’s not happening in other games. I’ve turned the game off now it’s unplayable.

Cant say I have heard of this issue before. I do not use a controller (except in setup when naming setups so I can capitalize certain things) so I can't say I have ever had this type of issue, but I have not even heard of this one reported by anyone else.

Did you submit a bug report?

Perhaps increase dead zone on the offending stick.

Also, your platform says PC. This is the Xbox forum. I am assuming you are on Xbox? If so are you XB1 or XB1X?

Remember the more detail you can give on the issue the better.

Does it happen with all cars or just certain ones? Does it happen in all sessions (practice,Qualify,race)?
All tracks?
All game modes?
Online only or offline?

Try and give as much detail as you can when asking about an issue or bug.

Ah I’ve only just joined I’ll try and change platform, yes Xbox one.

I’ve onlt tried race and quali and it happens in both, sometime the view changes to the extreme, sometimes it just shifts slightly, no pattern that I can tell. It happens across classes too, and I’ve had it on all 4 tracks so far today. All races are offline.

I’ll try and post a clip later today if that helps.

Regarding bug reporting, how do I go about that? When googling reporting bugs I was advised to do that here.

Actually, I think on this forum there is no official way to submit a bug report. Thats my mistake, I confused this forum with Elite Dangerous forum (which I am also posting on right now...while at work...trying to look like I am busy...and not f'ing around on video game forums). Maybe add "Possible Bug?" the the subject line to grab attention of Devs

Have you done a hard reset of the xbox ? Firmware update on the controller ?

I don't think you have faulty controller, it looks like the game thinks top down is your camera view and is trying to recenter as it does.

If when you are stationary the camera doesn't tilt but does so with speed then it's the camera system.

Try it out, hard reset (holding home button on both the controller and console for 3-5 seconds) your xbox and tell us. Thanks.

Try a different controller. This is the easiest option to diagnose this issue. I had this same problem with a worn right stick where it would make games like COD slightly move on its own or racing games cause the camera to do what it is doing. It would drift ever so slightly

UPDATE:

It was the controller, for some reason it was only happening in PC2 but now getting the same issue in other games.

Good excuse to buy the Thrustmaster ��

....and I will let it go cheap! lol

I upgraded to all Fanatec stuff and a rig so I do not need it anymore. But it worked very well for me.
