In the menu there is a "Racing" option, which activates basic racing settings. At the bottom of the window there is a status bar that displays the names of the lap times, the rider's best lap, and the average lap time. Most importantly, you can click on the scorecard to view your best laps over time and see how your speed is improving.
The steering wheel in this game works a bit differently than the controller. On the wheel, there is the usual speed control, directional control and brake control. However, there is nothing that you can't override with the left stick, usually using the centre or right stick is required. The one exception to this is the throttle, where to accelerate or brake, you must use the left stick, like with the controller. Overuse of the left stick can be dangerous, as it will cause overshooting.
Big props go to the controller makers for designing their games to suit the most popular gaming platform. What most sticks do well, analogue sticks do extremely well. What I dislike are the far too common “sticky pressure” and “left handed controls” options. When it comes down to it though, this is a great controller, as it is cheap, well designed and works great in the latest popular racing games.
At the bottom of the window is a status bar that displays how many joysticks (game controllers) are connected. If it reports that no joysticks are found, disconnect and reconnect your controller and then in the menu, select Quick Options > Refresh Joysticks. After a few moments Joystick Mapper will refresh and attempt to detect any connected game controllers. d2c66b5586
