How do I "Map" ESC to T500RS

Discussion in 'Project CARS' started by cthiggin, Jun 5, 2015.

  1. Title says it all. Have T500RS mapped pretty well, but I do NOT know how to map the ESC keyboard button to the "500RS"........

    Your help would be highly appreciated.

    Not sure if you can. But you can map the "pause" button which basically acts like the Escape button when you're on track.
  3. You may be able to use some external application to map keyboard commands to the T500. I've done this with button boxes in the past in older games which couldn't allow too many USB devices.
  4. I use the ESC when finished on the "track", to exit and move to another car or track type. Just quicker than using keyboard. I sure don't see ESC in the UI assignments. I'll research about external applications.

    Thanks so much

    If you mean when your car is on track, then you can just press the pause button (which you can map to whichever button you like) to get the exit menu.
  6. Gee Whiz - I do remember that now...pause, then screen comes up to "resume" exit, etc............
    THANKS for the refresher...........

  7. Yup,,that "ESC" button is really used a lot I believe for every game so I decided to make my own button box from a 2nd keyboard. Now when the wifey calls or texts while playing it's right there. image.jpg

  8. Nice idea and "nice button box"..............and I "sure" know about the calls from the wife....

    Quick Question: "RESET CAR" in UI, what does it really do...........when you press it, does it reset you "cars" individual setup and returns to default setup????

    Thanks so very much,

  9. If you are referring to the option I think you are, it places you back on the track in a ghost mode until you get moving again. If you have a big off and don't want to drive back to the track, you can hit the rest button and it will place you back on the track.

    Much to the dismay of some online racers because some people use this to minimize their accidents and just reset to the track. Would be nice to have the option to disable it for online rooms.

  11. Hello Kyle,
    Thanks.....I didn't know if reset meant all your "car settings" were taken back to default??
    This is "good to know"...and makes sense now.....
    I've pressed reset before (it was bound to one of my T500rs as a default), and when I would press it, car would be on track, but it also looked as if it had changed FOV also???

  12. Thanks Brandon,
    I can see how it could be a nuisance when online...
    Thanks again gentlemen.
  13. It shouldn't affect anything else. However, if you have speed sensitive FOV enabled it could give the impression the FOV was modified (i.e. the FOV is dynamically changing and then all of a sudden set back to normal with the car not moving).
  14. Kyle,
    No, I do not have "speed sensitive FOV" enabled....but as long as it goes "back" to normal, "me" happy.
    Thanks sir.
