PC Patch #1: 10/3

  • New input system, rebuilt from the ground up. *Note: Users may have to re-map their controllers. Do this in Options -> Controls -> Configure Controls.
     
  • Many wheels, XInput devices, and keyboard have default configurations already set up. These should work when attached, without extra configuration.
     
  • If your controller does not work when attached, use the keyboard to navigate to "Options -> Controls -> Configure Controls" to set it up.
     
  • Supports using multiple input devices at once. (For instance: steer with wheel, shift with shifter, gas/brake with pedals, control overlays with keyboard). 
     
  • Deadzones can be configured in Options -> Controls -> Other Settings.
     
  • Most DirectInput/XInput devices should be supported. If a device didn't work before, please try again.
     
  • Supports all buttons on devices, no longer limited to 20 buttons.
  • Fully configure Xbox controllers. 
     
  • Assign controls to discrete functions in game. "Accept" no longer has to also control the "Race Info" display, for instance.
     
  • Assign buttons/keys to steer, throttle, brake, clutch, etc. Just assign "Digital Steering Left/Right", "Digital Throttle", "Digital Brake", etc. 
     
  • Support for more than one force feedback device attached to your computer.
     
  • Player 1 and Player 2 can use different devices of any type; they don't have to both use gamepads or both use wheels. Set this in Options -> Controls -> Other Settings.
