What's the take on using a regular 1080p TV (or slightly higher, with HDMI input) as the primary device for racing? Is this 'input lag' on TVs, that I've read about, cause for concern when it comes to using the G27 for LFS, AC etc.?
My current laptop died on me and am trying to figure out my options on a very tight budget. Can I go the TV route (with a LFS-friendly PC setup) without much fuss?
1) Are you sure this only happens when Lapper is active? The random restarts does not happen when its inactive?
2) You've earlier mentioned that it restarted when Lapper gives a message? But now you feel its random?
3) What's the config time set to qualifying time (/qual=0 :qualifying minutes, 0 for no qualifying)?
I wouldn't worry too much about it if I were you. Unfortunately, when kick/bans are allowed on public servers people tend to misuse it quite often. I've seen people get kicked/banned without any reason, much less getting involved in an accident. However, kick/ban do need to be allowed in some instances where people can become a menace to those who are racing (especially if a moderator is not online at that given time...)
There are some moderated servers and those that are usually hosted in Europe, where you wouldn't have much ping related issues.
XRG and XRT are quite close (the wing being a one of the biggest changes). XRR, as you say is quite different due to wider fenders. Best would be to rename them and load them up on the CMX viewer to see how good (or bad) they look, and if required, to modify accordingly.
If you are pretty in to skinning, you might already realize that skins are stretched over certain areas in different percentages. JazzOn made a thread about stretching of skins, which might be useful when skinning (in case you were not aware of it already).
Oooh, interesting. Does windows detect the shifter's gear positions (and other buttons) as you've got it connected up via USB?
Edit: I've did a bit of digging, but I can't find any straightforward solutions. However, if you have modified it as an USB compliant device and Windows is correctly detecting/reporting the shifter's buttons and 'gear positions', I think it should be possible to map it to LFS one way or the other.
I don't have access to LFS at the moment and cannot test it, but if Windows recognizes the key press, it should be directly map-able (which you cannot at the moment) or assign it as a bind (linked to shift position).
Did you have a look at the LFS Scripting Guide? Anything there that you can use? I've not used it in years as are completely oblivious to how it works... but maybe it can used to assign the shifter keys on way or the other.
Hope someone else can give a more direct and straightforward answer!
In late December 2016 the devs introduced price bands for different countries. So based on where you live, it varies significantly. Prices can be checked on the vouchers page (drop down list of countries).
1) Are you launching LFS via the Logitech Gaming Software*?
1) Can you press "shift + c" to "re-initialize controllers", like Rik97 asked? Does that make any difference?
2) Does it still work on other software? Can you please check? (Just wondering if an O/S update messed up the wheel config..).
3) Can you take a screenshot of your option > controller screen and post it here (the screenshot image can be included as an attachment to your forum post), to see if anything is amiss...
* LFS manual has a remark stating N.B For Logitech G29 & G920, you must use the latest Logitech Gaming Software or else it won't be recognized.
I'm not too sure if the required drivers are in the adapter or the wheel itself, to be honest. I assumed that it would be in the wheel.
The Windows 10 OS might be the issue, as per what I came across online is that Windows 10 does not support this particular wheel anymore. And people have been complaining that there is no way around it...
If your household has another PC or laptop (which is not using Windows 10), try on it first. Or maybe one of your friend's PC before doing anything else.
If it work on a non-Windows 10 machine, it confirms that its an OS related issue. There might be a way to "create" drivers (find already created ones) so that the wheel is supported in Windows 10, but sorry, I'm not aware of how to do that...
Hello and welcome! To clarify, have you used it before to connect the Xbox wheel to the PC or is this the first time? Does it work on the Xbox itself? Does it switch on? Some troubleshooting tips here...
