    I have downloaded PC2, when I start the program my controller is not recognized. The car starts in the pit lane like a robot is driving it and when it hits the track all controls are dead. Is this normal for this program?
    No support that I know of so I'm dead in the water with this program.
    I did configure my controls, Fanatec controller although the pedals don't seem to be recognized either.
    Any help would be appreciated
    thanks

    Try this first:

    Then go into EDIT ASSIGNMENTS and see if you can configure your Fanatec device. It would also help if you provided more detail around your controller gear.

    controller not recognized

    I have a fanatec 2.5wheel with fanatec shifter and pedals. Computer is new and was configured as a game computer, I don't have the specs but it is robust and new. I have configured the wheel and pedals in the configuration section but when I click on edit assignments it shows that it is a keyboard. When I try to set the pedals there is not recognition of the pedals and I do have it set at "separate" in the pedal section and "manual" for the gearbox and fanatec 2.5 wheelbase.

    When I start the game the car takes off with a drunk robot driving it down the pit lane weaving apparently to warm up the tires (sonoma raceway) with a race engineer screaming at the driver. When the car crosses onto the track at the end of the pit lane, no control at all, just dies, no steering/throttle or brake. I just have to hit escape to exit. I've been trying to work with custom support but this appears to be beyond their bandwidth I have been asking for help for weeks. Although I did get a response, it does not correspond to what I have told them.

    It appears that there is a disconnect between what I have configured and what the game is recognizing or it just wants to recognize the keyboard. I have searched around the various tabs and nothing seems to come up that would change what I already have told the game what my controller is, etc.

    Pretty much ready to just uninstall and forget PC 2. Unfortunately I don't have the time to work through endless potential solutions, still working for a living and only so much time to devote and clearly don't need the stress!!!!. And I'm not an IT person either. While I can mostly navigate around a game or computer, too much technical stuff is beyond my expertise.

    If anyone has a tip that would be appreciated,

    thank you

    There is an issue sometimes people run into with how Steam works with controllers. Try this if you have not yet:
