Gamepads have rumble, not force feedback. There may be some gamepads that have wheel like FFB, but its rare. If lfs cannot know what is connected, there can atleast be a seperate option for gamepad like there is for mouse and wheel. Gamepads are in no way equal to wheels, u only have about an inch to move the stick, it may be easier to save yourself from a spin, but the cost being front wheels going lock to lock ultra fast and front tyres end up wearing faster then rear tyres. Please link me to a affordable gamepad WITH REAL FFB, not RUMBLE.
ajp71, have you played with a gamepad before? Im not asking for a aid, because from my experience from KS, steering with it does not make me faster then g25 WR holders. If you havent steered with a gamepad analog stick before, you should consider trying it if possible or spectating someone who does. All I ask is for a way to somehow smooth the steering, KS input being a good suggestion. If you havent really played with gamepad, or keyboard, I assume you are wheel users who find it unfair for someone without a wheel to be faster then you. I have been playing with settings for months, steer smooth, compensation, setup steering lock, everything.......still no smooth steering, now I am only suggesting the stabilized function, but if the devs can think of something else to really smooth gamepad steering and make it function as well as a wheel, then I would be happy. But im pretty sure thats not possible, unless there is some sort of stabilization like KS.
