Calibrating my steering wheel and pedals for GP2 (being played through dosbox in linux)

Post by samsepi0l » 01.03.2019, 20:22

I recently installed GP2, and Dosbox. I have a Logitech Driving Force GT steering wheel and pedals set. I am trying to get it set up so that the brakes, accelerator pedal and steering work.

When I use the wheel, it shows it as Joypad-A for the left and right turning motion. This is not a problem.

When I press the GAS pedal, it moves the vertical slider for Joypad-A (y direction) from the minimum to maximum. It is important to note that when my foot is OFF of the GAS pedal it is at minimum.

When I press the BRAKE pedal, it sees this as the horizontal slider on Joypad-B. It moves it from the minimum position on the horizontal axis to the maximum.

So what I am trying to say, is that Brake and GAS pedals are different joypads and different axises.

When I calibrate- it fails because the resting position of the pedals (both) is not center- it's the minimum.

How can I make this work?

I don't have any experience with a steering wheel in GP2 but maybe this will help you.

Look in the comments. Good luck!

Thank you- I actually figured out what I needed to do. There was a control option that asked me to "steer all the way to the left", then "right". Then "full throttle", then "full braking". I forget the name, it worked like a charm though.

I'm glad you figured it out! And you're right, the link sadly doesn't work anymore.
This was the other link I forgot to add.
