Hi,

I think I'd love to play the game, but I can't get my controls working.

Since I have to choose one of my controls I can either get my Fanatec wheelbase v2 working - steering works, but pedals not - or the Fanatec pedals v3 - pedals working, but steering not. Not to speek of key setups using button boxes and/or keyboard. PLEASE try to implement the possibility to use ALL and not only ONE of the recognized controllers.

And even when selecting keyboard the car is turning to the left by itself all the time, so I can't even use that one.

Hope you get this fixed..

My Fanatec v2.5 and v3 pedals work fine, But the button mapping, wheel, and pedals don't save on exit, so I need to remap and start from scratch each game start :( This needs fixing before I lose any more hair   :'(

how did you configure your controls so that they work?

I reinstalled the game and used keyboard controls only. They are not working for me. The wheel turns fully left automatically as if something would steer to the left all the time. Keyboard keys are working otherwise, but it's impossible to drive with the wheel going to the left permanently.

And the issue with the controllers remains - how can we configure various controllers at the same time instead of only one? So wheel, pedals, handbrake eg.?

Please fix it, I'd love to play the game...

You should be able to configure all the controllers. Just change to that controller with arrow < > signs and start to bind. You might have misunderstood that only one controller works at time. They all work at the same time.

If you're having issues try to press the "unbind all controls" or whatever it's called. Not sure does that unbind from all the controllers or just from the one you're currently looking, so you better go through every controller. When you unbind everything you can be sure that there are no conflicting ones left that are causing you issues like wheel constantly turned left.

Unbinding all controls helped solving the permanent steering to the left - Thank you - also for the personal reply message I received from support!

But some issues regarding controlers remain for me:

I think it is currently not possible to use hardware like Fanatec handbrake or shifter being connected via USB? At least they are not showing up as available controlers!

The steering input of my wheel does not match the wheel in the game (at all). I guess it has something to do with the number of degrees the wheel is configured with? What is correctly supported by the game? I might be able to sort that one out when I know how to configure Fanatec wheel driver to match the supported degrees in game?

There is some massive input lag between steering inputs and the in game wheel... I guess there is no way to imrpove that for me?

How much the visible steering wheel rotates can't be configured. I think it was something like 540 degrees what it shows if you want to 1:1 the rotation.

Too bad if those don't show. There might have been some other people also reporting problems with many USB controllers. Hopefully that can be fixed at some point.

Check in advance settings, try 90% saturation for steering an pedals. Recently changed mine for Thrustmaster TX @900 rotation

I believe Wreckfest only "see" up to 4 USB devices. Maybe have too many?

Have you tried just plugging in the handbrake and see it Wreckfest see it when it by itself? same for shifter?

ah, yes, if it only sees up to 4 USB controlers then that's the reason. I have more. Sadly it sees the button boxes first which would be less important.

so setting wheel to 480 degree gives roughly the same amount of turn..

So last thing to wish  for would be support of more controlers.

And then of course triple screen support and for some others VR support.. : )
