I'm having a hell of a time attempting to re-map controls for my G25 and as far as I can tell it's either use a game pad when your out of your car or the arrow keys there is no way to remap them so far. Driving is better than in the beta. I'm giving it more time, we'll see I just got my first car a Lotus.

Avoid this game, I've given it a chance but it's just not playable for me.

Framerate is around 40-50fps but feels much worse than that on my GTX580, good example of a console port gone wrong.

maxthreat: I'd love to hear some feedback about how the wheel performs. Guessing they at least fixed the FFB issue where the wheel was completely locked up by the motors, but how about the clutch? Does the car still stall unless you have the car red lined? Also did they decide to include the start button again or do you just press the gas pedal and the car starts up.

Hmm they have an insanesly high CPU clock on their processor. I know this game doesn't thread fully to all 4 cores, and I really felt like it was being cpu limited as I was only running a Q6600 at 3.0ghz. Given they are seeing around 60% usage average across the 4 cores, I'd imagine a lot of people with older cpus might have a little trouble with this game running well.

EDIT: Now that I see your sig it's your pc. What are the fps differences between running 720p and 1080p? I'd guess that the reason the GPU usage is lower on 1080p because the frame rate is down.

At that particular scene (and generally in cities)

720p + Very High => 46fps

1080p + 4xAA + Very High => 40fps

GPU usage is all over the place. GPU usage in 720p should be decreased to even more (keep in mind that we've also disabled AA in 720p), not only 8%. And then there is the increase to the first core (that should be, in both cases, at 0% as we run the game in Single GPU mode).
