Wanted to do a slow sighting lap...
...rider lies on the tank as if he was going 300kph even at slow speeds... doesn't look cool... milestone will never get this game right...
...let's hope for MotoGP 29 or so...

The AI appear to have no tyre wear and the neural AI seem to have been borked in the latest update.

I used to play MotoGP videogames with wheel, but with the olds motogp games. Nowaday, new games aren't coded for that. it's a shame because as strange it could appear, with wheel, you can feel the road and motorbike's tire grip on track. With the force feedback's feeling You can be more precise on track's trajectory or better manage motorbike's slide.

GirlRacerTracey posted a video in this thread on how to get one working. Highly recommended over a game pad controller. Just my opinion of course.

I've always used my wheel for these games with no problems, until Motogp19.
Unless I've got things wrong, the only way to get around corners fast is to powerslide.
My wheel is just too sensitive and I can't achieve the balance needed.

I'm finding it great fun on a Xbox One pad now they have increased the vibration.

I'll be buying this one in conjunction with F1 2019. I usually buy them both every two - three years.
