MXGP3 only supports Xbox 360 and Xbox One controllers on the PC. As a work around you can use the x360ce controller emulator. I've been using a logitech gamepad and the Thrustmaster Freestyler Bike controller to play MXGP3. Although the hadlebars aren't that good, in 1st person view it's quite fun. Anyway just thought I'd post this for anyone having problems using other controllers.
http://www.x360ce.com

NOTE: Place x360ce.exe in the Win64 directory of the game, same folder as "mxgp3-Win64-Shipping.exe". For myself it's
"D:\Games\MXGP3 The Official Motocross Videogame\mxgp3\Binaries\Win64"

**DO NOT place x360ce in main game directory next to "mpgp3.exe", it will not work. Must be in the "Win64" directory.

Mate... really.. thank you a thousand times ! It worked ! :confused::thumbsup:
Never thought it was possible. I even can now set my trigger button on my Logitech 3D as a throttle, something I couldn't do before.
This is real life saver. My game now becomes alive, so I feel like I could give it a 8/10 grade. :)
Sadly... as one trouble never comes alone... my GTX 770 just died so I have to play with my old GTX 260, lol, and... you can imagine my experience with game now. Have to lower resolution and ...everything... game look like it's made in 1989 and I can play only practice mode, since racing with AI would kill my fps even more. Oh hell... :(


So it can be done in about every game, right ?
This should be sticky. Really... :giggle:

Yes mate, any game that supports a game controller. Sometimes you need to play about with the settings but quite a lot of the time the program will get a profile that works automatically from the internet.
If you get any problems with it feel free to drop me a message mate.

Interesting reading about the weak AI here. The topic is all over the Steam forums; however, I initially brushed it off because a lot of Steam communities are full of "negative Nancy's" (no offense to any Nancy's here).

So it has a bunch of problems, looks blurry, has slow AI, but we shouldn't point that out because that's being negative? Sounds like a game not even worth trying.

Did you brush it off because it's not what you wanted to hear? Maybe they'll patch the AI later.

That's part of it. Frankly, Milestone hasn't done enough in the past to prove to me they'll actually fix this issue. Their games are typically pretty good; however, their post launch support is awful.

If that's what you take from it, By all means look elsewhere.

Every product to ever hit the market has flaws.This one is no exception, The point was (as I'm sure you're intelligent enough to identify) That even if you concentrate on the negatives, this is still the best MX game on the market.

Personally I've only run the game in sim mode and I cant beat the harder settings of Ai.

It's downloading now, so I hope the 2 hour window will be enough to make a decision.

MXGP 3 DLC Released.jpg

Milestone Games have released the first piece of DLC content for the new MXGP 3 game... introducing the Monster Energy SMX Riders Cup.

Released to a positive reaction from fans of the series, MXGP 3 appears to mark a considerable upturn in fortunes for a series that has seemingly failed to capture the video game playing audience in the way in which the real world series has achieved over recent years.

Using a combination of simulation features mixed with ease of access and usability, in MXGP Milestone have attempted to recreate a satisfying official MXGP racing title that still appeals to the wider racing game audience.

Notable for the use of the increasingly popular Unreal 4 Engine, MXGP 3 looks to be very much a return to form for a franchise struggling following its initial public launch back in 2014.

With the game having been out for Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC since May, Milestone have released the very first piece of DLC content for the title, adding the Monster Energy SMX Riders Cup DLC. Adding the Supermotocross competition, the new DLC sees six bikes from KTM, Husqvarna, Honda, Suzuki, Yamaha, and Kawasaki brought to the game and eligible to race in the new indoor Arena of Gelsenkirchen, Germany.

The player can select any bike among 250cc and 450cc and all 4 strokes models to race around the indoor arena circuit, a far cry from the large scale outdoor venues that form the majority of the locations found within the default content of the title.

The new DLC is available to purchase now and retails at £3.99 for the PC version of the title.

It was advertised as a replica of the event (that was only one track). The part that gets me is that a third of the riders are missing (I assume to licensing issues).
