FQA

Q. Why is the steering wheel not synchronized with the steering wheel in the game?
A. Because the game only supports a 90-degree steering animation, the steering wheel rotation in the game is just a simple animation, but the actual steering of the car is still 100% synchronized with the steering wheel. Press the T key on the keyboard to switch to the third perspective to check whether it is synchronized with the steering wheel.

Q. Why is the frame rate locked when playing the game with the steering wheel?
A. There is a phenomenon of locking frame rate with other steering wheels, except for the authorized steering wheel. Currently, we have actively contacted the game publisher to fix the issue.
