Yeah, there are a few threads with people commenting on using dual analogue sticks or similar controllers.. Some people regard it with disdain, in a "you can't drive smooth with that" way and it should be banned, but then others will say that there are some people who are very smooth with it and then there are handicapped people racing the game with all sorts of contraptions and being quite good at it.
I say try it, see if you like (at less than 10 bucks, it'd be no big loss if you don't) and then get sucked into buying a wheel because, frankly, you'll want one.
yeah I've actually got a G25 wheel but I don't have the space to keep it permanently hooked up and I use this computer for everything and, frankly, can't be bothered to set up the steering wheel each time I want to go for a spin. I'm quite a casual gamer like that, hence why I love Geoff Crammond games. They get you straight into the action of racecraft rather than p1ssing about with other things.
I do have a good dual analogue pad I even use for MS flight sim. I think I may give this iracing lark a go....
btw I once played Nascar 2003 with such a gamepad and it was a joke, I kept wrecking. Impossible to keep in formation side by side through corners. You really need the instant minute correction of a wheel for that.
I was OK with Formula BMW in rfactor though. I really liked that car in that game. Maybe I will buy the iracing Skip Barber as well as the Mx-5. Most other cars seem fairly high powered or lacking in grip like stock cars and therefore too difficult to control.
Any ideas on good low powered cars that are slow and not so tail-happy?
