XBOX controller settings


Hi all, I'm new to rFactor2 and having controller problems. I've Connected the Xbox One controller to the PC without problems... it works fine in other games. I've downloaded Controller (Xbox One For Windows) rar file and copied the json file into H:\Steam\steamapps\common\rFactor 2\UserData\Controller. It shows up in the game but none of the buttons seem to do anything. I've also tried a setting in Steam that I cam across to use the Xbox controller via steam. But nothing seems to happen when sitting in the garage, none of the controllert inputs do anything. It must be something really stupid, but I can't for the life of me find it. Any help would be appreciated.
