Ability to edit steering in Hot Pursuit 2?

Hi,
This is my 1st post - thanks for having me... I'm using N4S Hot Pursuit 2 with an Indianapolis 500 vibration steering wheel. Here's my problem - every car in this game is practically out of control when I'm steering - it's like it overcorrects when you pull the wheel to the right or left. I have a generic Windows game controller capability to calibrate it, but basically only to find center and to determine left or right steering. I've tried tweaking the dead zone up and down, and it's only marginally better.

Is there any way in the cars.ini file to edit the steering controlability of a car, maybe by lowering or raising a number? I've downloaded and installed some modded cars and thought maybe it could be done. I love this racing wheel - it's the only pc wheel I've found with gas and brake paddles on the wheel itself instead of separate foot pedals, which I can't stand.

Any tips or pointers? Thanks!

No sensitivity option, I don't think

Hi,

I have two options. The first is through the game controller calibration set up through my Windows control panel. That lets me find center, and determine left and right steering, but I don't believe it has sensitivity settings.

The second option I have is the dead zone setting through the game. That helped a tiny bit, but it still overcorrects and is hard to control no matter what car I use.

hmmmmm to me it sounds like a sensitivity problem. i had a steering wheel once and i was experinecing the same problem you are but i could turn down the sensitvity and that fixed it. do you have the latest drivers for it?

dont you have hardware specific driver for it? (normally you get a cd with a wheel, otherwise its on the net :)
windows drivers are ok sometimes, but specific drivers have much more options most of the time

that is very true. go to the website of whoever made your steering wheel and see if they have drivers which they should. if not then i would send them an e mail explaining your problem
