A few words of caution regarding the use of the Logitech G25 on the PC! A growing number of users have reported 'axis confusion' and lack of 'force feeback' with GRID whilst using a G25.A third party 'calibration clear' tool has been released in an attempt to resolve the issue. Vista uses beware this may not fix the issue.This result is a real 'kick in the teeth' for hardcore driving fans tend to be owners of the G25. Surely it should be expected that adequate product testing should eliminate such issues. For along time there have been conflicts between software and hardware companies. Will there be a resolution?
Axis confusion indeed. But that is only if you use the preset. It is very easy to get round by using the custom controls. Once I used this with my G25 it worked perfectly. And the Force feedback works fine with no problems.I am using Vista Ultimate as well.In fact the only issue I do have is that after about 20 minutes or so of playing the game the game freezes every few seconds which is annoying when it does it during a braking or turning zone only for it to come back on and I am in the wall or something, however, to get round this I simply do ALT + TAB back to windows for about 5 seconds and then go back to the game and it is okay again for another 20 minutes. More frustrating than anything.But, all in all, a superb game. I have already earned my class A license in Europe and am on my way to getting my Class A in the USA as well. No Japanese races completed yet.
I and others have tried the custom method to no avail!However the force feedback issue has been resolved thanks to the Grid patch 1.1 that has been released.
The first tiem I tried the custom method I couldnt work it out.But highlight the option you want, then press CTRL to allow the change then press the pedal or move the wheel...etc. However, when I tried it the first time it didnt accept it, so I tried it again and it did. Just the way I got round it and it works a treat.
I use the Xbox 360 USB Gamepad.It works like a treat and with force feedback.
