Yes agree , buy a wheel ...gamepad is for Pac ManIf you want to play with a game pad, buy a game designed for that audience, like Forza Horizon, etc...
If you want to use a simulator, buy AMS 2, iRacing, ACC, etc... buy a wheel
If you want to play tennis, buy a raquette, not a snow shovel.
It's not necessary to explain to everyone about your life.Someday the situation will improve and everything be OK.I don't know his situation, but for me with three kids, one small family room, no separate office/gaming room, and little storage space, buying a wheel and wheel stand just wasn't going to work, even a folding stand. Thankfully I found a SRW-S1 a while ago, which is a tilt sensor wheel you hold in the air, and it has allowed me to enjoy sim racing with a bit better experience than a gamepad. There aren't many great options for people that don't have room for a desk or wheel stand
Budget can also be a valid reason. Even used wheels that aren't junk seem to cost a bunch more than a nice, brand new gamepad
Yes, you're right. I could have explained more succinctly without all the personal angles. Then again, details help paint the real-world picture of people like you who have the exact same interest in sim racing and are just in different life situationsIt's not necessary to explain to everyone about your life.Someday the situation will improve and everything be OK.
But, at least, it also have a much better overall behavior, much more organic. Well done, Reiza!
How hard you used to set your AI and how you do it now?
I agreed with you, just added something.I didn't say I didn't like the new difficulty level, you misunderstood I think. But hey, maybe I express myself poorly, I do not master English well enough? On the contrary, I like how the AI behaves, just that it's harder to beat them, but I like it!
The audio pops in those few cars is rather annoying but the cars that have been fixed and newer audio is really great. The problem has now been identified now so it will get fixed asap.hope to see more improvements on the remaining car audios that crackle and pop..ex. GT3 M6
That is super harsh! A Logitech wheel costing twice the minimum wage! I'm blown away by that.
AMS 2 isn't nowhere NEAR AMS 1 gamepad capabilities. ..
"Buy a wheel" - they say. I wish it was so simple.
My point is not to sit and cry about that. I understand the situation and fairly enjoy racing with gamepad against the A.I. IF the game allows me to do it properly, wich AMS 2 is not doing so well. ... This "buy a wheel" thing it's starting to get me pissed.
Yeah, the wheel elitists are assholes.
Reiza has said they are working on better gamepad support, but they really need to start making it happen.
Anyway, try these settings for AMS2 - they're the best I've been able to come up with for now.
Use the default AMS2 gamepad settings, but change steering sensitivity to 10 (WTF? 10??? wait, hear me out...) and throttle/brake sensitivity to 30.
Dropping SS to 10 gives you micro directional control at speed, and also allows counter steering control + cornering slide control. Leave the car setup steering lock at default though. It's the interaction between the controller steering curves and the car steering lock that make them so hard to control on gamepad, and currently this setting is working for me. YMMV though!
T/B at 30 gives a finer control curve on the throttle/brake as these cars really respond to T/B control. You can't just mash the T/B, you have to imagine you are using your feet dancing on the pedals (even T/B at the same time as needed) and emulate that as close as you can with the limited range of the gamepad triggers with the right control curve.
Some cars work better with ABS/TC at authentic, some better if you set ABS/TC to low or high (OMG WHAT A LOSER THEY'RE USING ASSISTS HAHAHAA cry the wheel elitists - whatever, if it works to have control and fun ****ing use it). Generally I start with them on Authentic and if you keep spinning out too much start with ABS/TC low and adjust from there. After a while turn them off again and see if your control has gotten better or just leave them on. No big deal, whatever lets you have the most fun should be the only rule.
You're playing a game after all, just the same as the wheel elitists are in their spare bedroom with their racing suit and gloves on pretending they're gamermuscle.
SC is unusable generally so set to OFF, though can help sometimes for learning a new car that's very twitchy. Feels like you're fighting it after a while, which is probably the point when you can turn it off once you can feel that.
I've spent a lot of time over the beta testing a whole range of settings and these are working best for me now, and it's the best AMS2 has felt on gamepad since the beta launched.
Try it with a range of cars from the low speed Fusca's to the Omega Stock Car 99 to higher speed demons to get a feel for them, while mixing up the tracks from oval like Goania outer to ones with lots of cornering.
Hopefully they'll add better gamepad feedback (like AMS1/DR2/rF2) and settings controls (visual curves would be the best) soon like they've promised.

Really guys that's your contribution to the thread, no wonder people complain about how toxic some members of the community are.
I'm sorry that some RD members aren't having fun the way you think they should, but that is their right and for you to make sneering condescending comments is disgraceful.
Considering how well our small niche community came together over the past week in a cause to then find these attitudes towards fellow members is really sad.
...Like I said I've spent more than 30 hours to get to know how I could figure it out the best settings but even after I "got it right"
I agreed with you, just added something.
How do you set your AI?
