Wheel/Pedals Not Recognised

Discussion in 'F1 2012 - The Game' started by Kevin Ross, Jan 19, 2013.

  1. Hello all,

    In addition to my utter failure to configure triple screens, I have also failed to get my wheel/pedals recognized. Both are recognized as game controllers in the control panel, so I would expect that I can use them. I'm using a bodar wheel (which appears as a "Steering Wheel"), and the pedals are custom Tiltons that simply utilize a BU0836 board. I made sure to calibrate both of these in the Windows game controller properties.

    Soooo, neither of these work in the game. I must be missing something obvious, what is it?

    I don't know either the wheel or the pedals.

    So I'll ask the obvious question, have you tried customizing the wheel/pedals in the game's wheel setting pages?

    By that I mean actually remapping every function of the wheel and pedals. So rather just just accepting what axis or slider is presented to you for each function as default, you actually remap it.
  3. Yes, I have tried customizing the wheel and pedals. It doesn't appear to recognize any actions.

    The trouble is that you don't really have any leverage with Codemasters either, because your equipment isn't listed as compatible :-


    It may be possible to created your own actionmap XML file that is edited for your wheel. However I am not sure how you can force the game to recognise the new file, even if you add it to the actionMapPaths.xml file.

    You'd probably have to know your way around Windows devices and how they are recognised and identified ......

    I suppose you could ask them in their tech support forum, but I somehow doubt you would get much joy.

    Another way, which may or may not work is to try something with XPadder. Using it to do some remapping, then using those remaps in the F1 2012 remap page ..... I don't know to be honest.
  6. It looks like I'm probably out of luck, which is pretty ridiculous since you should be able to map an axis of a HID device to it:

    I walk the line.

    There some controller override setting at the bottom. I can't remember the name of it. Try turning that on or off.
