    Well after hearing people online talking about rfactor2 I was like OK! I own it might as well try it.
    After spending 3 hours just trying to get the cockpit view right so I could see out the windshield & looking for it to pickup on my Fanatec 2.5 base and McLaren GT3 wheel & Fanatec V3 Pedals. Thinking ok its working (what a joke).
    So now I can drive out of the pits give it gas down the first strait @ Mid-Ohio down to the first Right WHAT!!!! NO Brakes! it all looked good in setup why no brakes ? Then the next WHAT? pushing the gas pedal to the floor, I feel I could outrun this thing to the first corner with a moped. Not to add the turning of the wheel is a joke. Also the intro to the game and menu is lacking thinking how much did I pay for this crap. Your Thoughts?

    A) you have equipment that was all created AFTER rF2 came into existence. That is not to say your gear won't work, all those parts will, but it may be trickey(as you found).
    B) Did you calibrate the wheel and pedals in the controller screens? Did you set the max then min? Did you see graphic movements when you pressed the pedals or turned the wheel? Did you go thru the 5 or 6 screens of controls and assign, verify and test that they are working correctly?
    C) Did you warm up the brakes as you were leaving the pitlane area by repeatedly depressing the brake pedal while under the pitlane speed limiter?
    D) Did you dis-engage the Pit Lane speed limiter after leaving the pits?
    E) did you set the linearity to 50% (iRacing users will assume 100% is the correct setting. rF2 works off the center of the scale, not the end. values below 50% slow down initial sterring inputs. Values above 50% speed up the initial steering inputs.
    F) If you went out at night, did you put your headlights on? (near instant DQ if you drive without them in the dark)
    G)Do you have the message center enabled? This will notify you of penalties, mistakes, etc.
    H) did you exit the pits before the track went green?
    Just a few thoughts, off the top of my head.
    Verify that all your controls are working in windows BEFORE ever launching rF2 and make sure the wheel is your preferred device, then the other peripherals. .
    Good Luck!

    they ARE working on it. but it's a small team and they have been focus'ed on DLC added content. We expect some major changes soon...(soon is a spongy term in rF2land) in the UI and online competition.
    After that? they are barely halfway updating the existing DLC cars to the PBR shaders(no interior shaders yet). We think the upcoming Mclaren Senna GTR may have an updated PBR cockpit...but nothing confirmed yet. There should be several announcements at the upcoming SimRacing Expo at the Nordschleiffe. So hang in there through the first week of September to see what comes out of that.
