gamepad controls?
So, the gamepad controls are either absolutely awful or just broken.. Any ideas getting that to work properly? Seems like throttle and steering are connected to each other somehow which is just crap regarding gameplay..

i don't know what remedy was thinking since there is a kinda standard gamepad configuration with which most racing games comply.

That is absolutely true.
Also way back in 16/32-bit computer era (90's) with single-button joysticks it was more common to have throttle in button and joystick to steer so I can't figure out where this control system comes from..

Yep, I'm still taken back by how stupid it is. & regret my purchase as a result. had been looking forward to it when I bought it (the original I believe handled better, why this dookie).

I absolutly agree with this. Ladies and Gentlemen - please update the gamepad controls!

What can we do, to get a patch??

This is just an idea (I don't have the game):

Can the gamepad be disabled from in-game and then use a program like Xpadder to define the keys (from the keyboard) in the gamepad?

That way the game won't use the gamepad (to avoid conflicts) and for the game, would it be like be controlled with the keyboard (but using the gamepad)...

Just out of curiosity, what is the control scheme for gamepads in this game?

I'm interested in the game, but after reading many complaints about the controls and none describing exactly how you control the cars in this game, I'm not sure if I should buy it or not...

Hi Azrael...it's crazy....you have to drive the car with stick but not like usual (right left) here the only option is to turn the stick in the direction you want to go...I tried many time...but after some curves I make mistake because not intuitive like this...the funny thing is that there are control options but only this steering wheel profile....non way to change...I hope they will update this very awesome game... :-(

Many thanks for the fast reply! ^_^

If I understood correctly, it seems like the control by default for the game "Mini Motor Racing EVO" (a game I really like... ). In that game, you control the steering with the Left Stick changing the direction of the car up to 360° (Stick Direction Steering) while the Right Trigger accelerates the car, but you can also change the steering to the classic "Left/Right Steering" in the options.

I have no problems with the "Stick Direction Steering" (I play Mini Motor Racing EVO that way), but too bad that this game doesn't allow to change it to the classic steering.

Just a thought one thing I do is there is a camera option to chase car. When I turn that on the game controls drastically better with gamepad for me
