Thank you so much. I couldn't figure out why I couldn't choose my own setup
Greenshark Oct 8, 2021 @ 8:28pm 
it's certianly impressive you've mapped everything important, but my question is why?
Trevor Lahey Apr 10, 2021 @ 9:10am

Taffrail Jul 2, 2020 @ 7:50pm 
my documents folder is messing up, it's read only. If anybody has the config file for this, that'd be much appreciated

Xbox之前手柄能用吗?

for vehicles I love my trusty old controller. (HKS Hipermax racing controller) It IS the doodoo!!

LOL at all the controller hate

Been thinking of trying this but could never bother to bind everything and do it in a good way. Might give it a try next time I play, thanks!
