Hello again,


I'll (strongly) assume that the controller - or the "receiver", if the gamepad is wireless - is plugged into a USB port ? Have you tried using different USB ports on your computer ? Sometimes you got to plug the stuff in elsewhere and it will work...

I would have indeed suggested "DS4 tools/windows", but since you already tried that the option is off the table.  WhatDidUJustCallMe?


//EDIT

It often seems that non-XBOX controllers seem to be incompatible with various Windows games. Whether that's deliberate by Microsoft (i.e. driving up sales of their own XBOX controllers), there is no way of telling for sure of course. But the assumption is tempting.

yes it is a wireless controlled with attached cable plugged into a usb port , all the games i have works with ds4windows but none of them were racing games. now i installed first racing game and of course does not work with my controller.....  i have find something called pinnacle game profile  but the controls are not as it needs to be , like when i use acceleration (R2) no matter how soft i press it still goes max speed same with braking.  i don't think i can expect much help since its a old game and developers abandoned it completely.......

//EDIT

Can you delete this thread completely, i am gonna uninstall the game.. so no need for a solution anymore. thanks tho

So you have tried already plugging it into a different USB port (I'll assume that your computer will have more than 1 - functional - USB port) ?

And it's OK - we can leave the topic open, so if someone else has a better solution, they can post here. As a sidenote, we don't normally "delete" whole threads, unless it's for example a duplicate of an existing thread. Nowadays we mostly move topics "out of sight" for normal users - into the so-called basket. Smile

...and when you use the keyboard, the gas becomes "sensitive" then ?


Is the gas even supposed to be sensitive ?  scratch
