Thrustmaster TX 458 issue, wheel just dies

    Hi guys,

    Having an odd problem that only occurs on this game and nothing else I play.

    Basically, when I'm driving, at random points the throttle will stick down 100% and I lose all control of the wheel, it just seems to deactivate itself with no audible tones or lights going out. Meaning I usually just crash.

    After a brief few seconds control comes back and buttons work again.

    This has made the game unplayable.

    Does anyone have any troubleshoot tips?


    Running on Windows 10. I'm sure it's been fine for a bit since i've updated... It used to work perfect but that may have been on an older update and Windows 8. I'm not sure.

    I may try running it in compatibility mode later, see if that changes anything.
