Bought it on sale. Still a mistake

    I bought the game on sale yesterday. I had promised myself I would never again purchase a Milestone product at full price and I stuck to it.

    I set up the controllers, badly because it is a mess and I have separate H-pattern shifter, a TM T500, a DSD button box and assigning the H-pattern was impossible. The Wheel controller actually registered the inputs, but when I went to test drive the default car, I could only use the paddles.

    However, there is no point in troubleshooting that, since when I go to a Stage, none of my controller inputs work. None.
    I am watching the car from Behind, my throttle doesn't work, my gears don't work (paddles or H-pattern) I just sit there with the clock running and I cannot drive.

    I exit, go back to the default Peugeot car, and at least Throttle and brake work and I can change gears.

    I have read reviews written by people with a setup similar to mine. Even people with 3 screens. For somebody the controller works, maybe badly, but in my case it doesn't work at all.

    Since there are a few fans of the game here, have you seen this behavior? Is there anything I can do?
    Does steam refund purchases if the game refuses to work as advertised?

    Yes, Steam refund purchases no matter your reason. Even if you state that you don't like the game or anything else as long you don't blow the 2 hours grace period.

    About your joystick inputs, have you tried using something like Universal Joystick Remapper? You can mess around with the axis and buttons to see if you get the game working. Like merging the throttle and the brake axis.

    I wish I could help you more, but I own a Logitech wheel. Never had any issues in that regard with the game. You can also try this: http://www.tocaedit.com/2016/03/sebastien-loeb-rally-evo-rfpe-plugin.html . The tool is supposed to eliminate any input lag. It does work but introduces issues changing gears. The wheel and pedals axis work better though.

    I'll try that, thanks. I actually use Xpadder and I am good at programming it, but for instance in the keyboard input panel I don't see the gears at all. The only controller panel that has gears is the one for my wheel. I can actually use my separate shifter (also thrustmaster) to select the gears on the wheel panel, but when I go drive the Base car, it won't work and I have to use the paddles.
    Then in stage mode, no controller works at all so that makes the issue mute. I even tried the simplest set up possible: gears on auto and just the steering and pedals mapped (and the view button). Nothing. I just sit at the start of the stage locked out of the car.
    I go back to driving the Peugeot and everything works again.

    To add insult to injury, Dirt Rally is also not saving my controllers so I have to remap everything each time I launch it and my Fanatec handbrake has worked 2 hours total since I bought it 3 months ago.
    The gods don't want to let me rally I suppose.
