    I have a DIY FFB Wheel that uses vJoy to interface with the game. Everything work ok in the menu, and I also have FFB effects in the car, but it doesn't take the steering input. Have tried with both custom and Legacy wheel in the settings. I tried the PC2 demo and have the same fault with that too. Can I expect this to be fixed in a near time, or should I just return the game?

    I own a vJoy wheel too and the wheel doesn’t work in game. It’s well recognized in menu option but when I start a race it doesn’t work. The car can’t turn anyway. The FFB seems working and if the car crash the wheel turn and rumble.

    Please try reducing "Controller Dampening" to 0 and check if the wheel turn in game but with a big deadzone in the middle.
    Thanks

    I will try this. In the meanwhile I can tell you the big dead zone in the middle appears if I select gamepad as controller and assign left and right from the wheel.

    Well, now the wheel work, kind of... Very weird, It's like mega lag + if I turn the wheel a little bit and then press the throttle, the wheel turns more...

    Thank you, now we know that "Controller Dampening" does something "weird" as you said... let's hope @Heitor Facuri Cicoti read this and report to devs.

    @Mauro Fx I can choose between "Custom wheel" or "Legacy Wheel", the deadzone is still there BUT the steering in game starts to work only if I move the "Controller Dampening" setting from 100% to any other value.

    I use vjoy with keyboard and mouse and have the same problems (and had similar problems with pcars2). Pressing the throttle key makes the wheel linear/removes the deadzone. Without throttle there is some sort of deadzone/nonlinearity/lag near the center. Steering deadzone and controller dampening are at 0 in settings. I don't think controller dampening is at fault here. It does what it should do. There just seems to be something wrong with the way vjoy inputs are processed by the game.

    thanks @Towers. Moving “Controller Dampening" setting from 100% to any other value allowed me to steer in game. Now the wheel works, but with a huge dead zone (or imput lag in the middle), maybe not so big as you describe but enough to not allow a normal driving. I think there’s a bug or something else concerning Dampening option. I hope Devs will investigate

    Yes I think it slightly reduces if you set the minimum degrees of rotation on your wheel control panel, but you still have it from 240 to 1080

    Was hoping for some kind of response from Reiza. I can understand that it is not the highest on the list, but at least some respond that they gonna work on it in the near future had been appreciated.

    Update! Moved the throttle from "Y" axle to "Ry" axle, and now the throttle doesn't affect the steering input, but the the input lag is still there.

    Is it absolutely nessesary for you to use vjoy?
    How about using Xpadder instead?
