    Hi,

    I have just got Showdown free with my new GFX card, however it's not compatible with my Fanatec CSR wheel. I know 'officially' the game doesn't support the wheel. However I do know there are some very clever boffins out there who can re-write the acionmap.xml file and come up with a solution.

    Any help would be appreciated as I would really like to use my wheel in this game.

    Cheers

    Woz

    If the wheel is not directly supported but steers and the throttle and brake respond, you could use a program like joy2key to map the buttons. If the wheel and pedals can't be assigned in the controller setup then you may be out of luck.
