GRID Wheel Support – All the Details You Need

September 26, 2019

Like all Codemasters titles, GRID doesn’t just support a wheel setup – it thrives on it. Throughout development we’ve ensured that GRID is fun, challenging and accessible for those using a wheel, pedals, or a full racing rig. Following feedback on this topic from past Codies games, we’ve made further steps to ensure you can race #LikeNoOther on your chosen wheel setup.

Similarly to DiRT Rally 2.0, GRID allows PC players to manually set up your peripherals through the in-game options for optimum performance. Key integrations for this system include:

• Up to 15 connected devices
• Connect multiple instances of the same device
• Each connected device configuration is saved with a rolling history of 15 devices
• Each device is heavily configurable via provided XML files and in game menus
• Common devices are known in a pre-defined device_defines.xml, fixing common issues with drivers and pre-configuring device settings
• Multiple action maps per device supported to allow for rim-swapping
• Unknown devices can be configured via in-game menus

On PC, thanks to community feedback we have improved support for the majority of devices to be added/configured via the in-game menus without the need to hand-edit XML files. This includes selecting the device type, forcing force feedback on/off, multi-binding different axis to the same actions and calibrating.

We’ve also made further improvements to this system, including:

• Simplified menu layout – consolidating information into one screen (Device Management)
• Displaying all devices recognised or disconnected, so you can detect faults/issues
• Ability to edit deadzone saturation for dynamic axis, such as using an analog handbrake
• Improved calibration description and information

For all platforms, here’s a handy list of peripherals that you’ll be able to play with in GRID straight away, after minimum calibration:

Connected devices is an area that is constantly being improved and expanded through both internal testing and community feedback.
If your device isn’t on the list, you can still define the device type and set it up in-game on PC. We’re making it easier for players to sort their device quickly and easily without having to leave in the in-game experience.
