    3 Steering wheel bugs

    My steering wheel: Ferrari GT Experience

    Bug 1

    Problem Area: Game

    Problem Mode: Offline, any mode.

    Operating System: Windows 7 64 Bit

    Describe The Issue: The game thinks I'm pressing down on my throttle when I go on track when I'm not. The speedo goes up to half way on gear 1 and the car crawls along.

    Bug 2

    Problem Area: Game

    Problem Mode: Offline, any mode.

    Operating System: Windows 7 64 Bit

    Describe The Issue: The game thinks my throttle is my brake and my brake is my throttle.

    Bug 3

    Problem Area: Game

    Problem Mode: Offline, any mode.

    Operating System: Windows 7 64 Bit

    Describe The Issue: There is no dead zone option so I have to turn my wheel half way to move the slightest bit.

    Actually there are specific steering wheel settings, but they aren't right in your face so you might miss them. In the controller settings there is a left and right option to get more settings. On my DFGT it was automatically mapped to the left and right bumper buttons. Two steps (I think) to the right there are sensitivity and deadzone settings.

    Thanks, sounds like an axis binding issue. Does your wheel work properly on other games?

    I *think* that if the wheel is detected as a controller, he doesn't get those options. I have seen other posts about users' wheels not being recognized as wheels, but as a gamepad instead--and with a gamepad you only have vibration/gas/brake sensitivity. Not the regular steering sensitivity that you get with a wheel axis.

    That theory would also make sense with the dead zone issue, as the default gamepad dead zone would be horrendous on a wheel.

    Yeah, I have no problems with it on other games.

    I can see Acceleration and brake sensitivity, but no dead zone option for steering

    Is there an option to fix this?

    Not that I know of. I'm sure a ETX staffer can chime in, but if it's detected as a controller and not a wheel, the only fix would be for them to add support for that wheel to detect it properly.

    Ok cheers

    Edit: Deadzone settings are now showing after reinstalling the drivers for the steering wheel. Hopefully this will fix a few problems

    Ok so it fixed most of my problems, but now my car just wants to turn left 100% of the time. I actually need to turn right to go left, otherwise I would just be going towards the grass
