Default Re: Grid...

I fricken hate it,i cannot for the life of me get the steering to work properly with a analog pad,its WAY to sensetive even when set on the least sensetive setting.As it is now i can barely move the stick without getting full lock and crash into the armco.

Thats means i have to twitch myself around corners and move the stick with millimeter movements ,long slow ones are a nightmare as i have to adjust the steering constantly and loosing speed because of it.The digital cross is not much better,its just overly sensetive.Its like the travel is short as hell and i cannot fix that,apart from buying a wheel is there anything i can do to make the steering travel longer ?

sup ladies? Just bought it on Steam. the drift mode in the demo captivated me. Closest game to Forza 2 IMO. I usually do things without any assists.

It works perfect with an Xbox 360 controller - as did DIRT. My suggestion, find a used 360 wired controller.

my analog controller works alright, but the rumble does not work at all. Kinda annoying because I think it would make it more fun. I've tried maxing it out and it doesn't work at all.

So far it's pretty good, I found it somewhat laughable at the start how I can get 20,000 for coming dead last in a race with a car that crawled over the line. Yet if I work hard to get to 4th in that same race I get the same reward. The driver assist guy changes his mind about my car often "just a scratch, you'll be fine" to "your car won't drive like you might expect" which is irritating.

I wish my manager whispered more sweet nothings into my ears

It's pretty good in places and sometimes it is awful. That's because I can predict how some cars will behave, but others are just ridiculous - can take corners almost flat out without any trouble, however that just does not seem right...

The night races in Japanese cities look REALLY good. Take it back a few years and you could've easily said that they were pre-rendered if you saw a video of them.

The game does run very well, but it does show at times where the sacrifices have been made - it can look a bit blurry at times, well most of the time during the day, but this visual style suites the game pretty well... sort of.

I’m really enjoying the game, dislike the Japan portion of it, especially the drift.

GT1 races are the best, got a good teammate now. Some German named Sebastian aggressive driver. Sometimes he pushes other drivers of the track.
