I just recently started playing rFactor and have experienced some weird phenomena I cannot understand while trying to do race simulations for the WTM event. This happened three separate times in an off-line race with 30 A. I. Everything was working normal, just about at the 30 minute point (it was a 45 minute race) my steering wheel would not control the car, then it would work, then it wouldn't. Both times I had to come back to the pits for damage to me hitting something from the wheel veering off in one direction or the other. I wanted to carry on to see how the tire life would be at the end of the raceso I came into the pits to repair the damage and went back out . This problem continued to manifest and was not limited to the steering wheel sometimes the throttle would just stay stuck open. I have never had any type of problems like this before. I have a G27 wheel. I checked to make sure the device drivers were updated. Windows says they are. My wheel did not seem to be hot to touch and the fan is on as well so I don't suspect overheating. Anyone know what the cause is?
