Just set a time for stage 1. Car is totally busted!
I think I need (a lot) more pratice with a controller… and a bit of fine tuning. Does anyone have any tips & tricks for using one. Currently have left analogue stick set to accelerate and brake, right stick for steering. I can deal with the on/off throttle, but steering isn’t as progressive as I’m used to and I am way overcontrolling at the moment?
It is an old (as in ancient) Logitec Rumblepad 2, if that helps?
I am using the Xbox One controller that my girlfriend refurbished (the rubber behind the A button had to be replaced).
I am using the default bindings for it:
(both triggers are “axis” controls)
A shift up
X shift down
I had to get used to the shifting, as that is done with the bumpers on PSP, but this seems to work rather well. I’m not using the handbrake at all though, apart from the start, as the right thumb is very busy shifting down when entering a turn.
The rumble is really good!
Not sure how much of this translates to your gamepad (are the triggers analog axes on your gamepad?)
Yeah, I’m pretty sure I took out nearly every roadside marker in my run… as well as lots of sections of fence
The Monaro soil has a high clay content (i.e. slick as goose poo when it is wet). Plus the narrow cattle crossings, short sections of tarmac, etc and I think they have done a pretty good job of modelling the roads around here
I chose medium tyres for Stage 1 and was struggling for grip from launch???
I had an OK 2nd stage, once again struggling for grip even with soft tyres this time and then went and totally cocked up stage 3 by picking up a puncture right at the start rolling once and multiple off road excursion. I had forgotten how much fun this game can be …
But I just cannot get to grips using a controller. I have never had a console so I completely lack any ‘muscle memory’ and it just feels totally weird and foreign to be driving a car with one.
I will definitely be setting up my wheel for the next round. I doubt I could complete a stage in a Group B monster with the controller?
