    Hi, I bought the title from a sale, and enjoying the graphics (physics not so much). However there's one big problem. None of my settings (control, ffb) are saved, so I have to remap everything when restarting the game. Pain in the butt. It doesn't matter if I only use wheel buttons at the start nor any other shenanigans. Is there some configuration file I could edit and save the info? Any help appreciated!

    (T300, Elite pedals and G27 shifter here)

    I had the same problem, if you use enter on the keyboard if knocks out the settings ! Just use the buttons on the wheel
    (bottom left) also don't remap the pause button. I was using a DFGT + G27 before, now with a TX still not perfect when setting mouse control that causes issues as well.
    Save your profile see if that helps, you may need to do a bit of Google for more info it's a know issue

    Well, I can confirm that nothing helps. Controls are always reset. I think I'm going to reinstall next.

    Oh, I wonder if Steam Cloud somehow messes with the settings...Going to disable it first.*

    *didn't help

    Perhaps a problem with more than 2 controllers?

    I experienced this at some point. IIRC the solution was to not remap the pause function. So try to assign the rest of the functions to whatever you please, but don't touch the pause ;)

    Reinstalling did help! The game even signs into Racenet which it didn't do ever before. 2-controller settings were saved!

    When I have time I'll test it with 4 controls (G27-shifter and Edtracker added to T300 and Elite Pedals).

    Yay, everything works as it should, even with more controllers! I can see orange circle bottom right whenever I change settings as a sign of the game saving them. Seems to me that Racenet connectivity was the deciding factor.

    Won't remap the pause button, that's for sure. :D

    I've remapped pause with no ill affects. Pressing enter to start the game does indeed reset everything though.

    I had read that before, but unfortunately, it steals my upshift paddle for Pause... Grrrr!

    I have another Steam game (Crash Time II) where if you hit Enter when the game starts, no controller. Hit the A button on the pad first, then you get controls. So, same deal with Dirt Rally, if I hit button #2 on the wheel and it does nothing, I exit the game and start it again. I know it lets me avoid remapping. Worst case, I start a stage and go to shift into 2nd and it pauses... YARP!
