This mod will fix some issues with steering wheels and allow Manual Gears.

Steering issues resolved:
DeadZone is eliminated and steering is now 1:1 and unfiltered
FFB Constant Force is utilized via angular velocity (not perfect but feels better?)

NFS Hot Pursuit Wheel Manual Mod v1.0

Please take a look at the INI and readme before asking questions.


If using this for steering wheel, be sure its the only game device connected. Other controllers may cause conflicts and crash or have undesired effects. Manual Gear can be used with just keyboard or gamepads.


Tested on a Logitech G25.

You are changing my mind about buying this game. Man you are a genious!

No pressure man, but can you also post a video of the manual transmission? I don't have the game yet, so I can't test it.

But EA DID ef it up. And all this user mod work to fix a problem that some people here said did not exist in the PC version. Even when other websites were reporting there were dead zone and steering lag problems. For shame. Why misslead people like that? Don't expect people to believe your views in the future. (I could post links but you know who you are)

And thanks to Racer_S for the mod. I don't have the PC game and I gave away the PS3 version. But maybe some day I'll buy it when it is $9. But still, NFS with weapons and voice chat? Not any roots I remember. Very, very childish game (with lousey control too).

looks like you might be using and older version in that video or there is some bug, it shifts a lot smoother now and doesnt skip gears

Racer_S can u make the handling like Most Wanted and still keep Automatic Gears to be playable with keyboard.

Handling & lack of AA are the only thing that's ruining this game I believe.

HazewinDog

Tbh i dont like Most Wanted's handling at all. Id rather have Underground 2's or World's handling then. Anyway, i think it would be a long project cuz all cars handle different and there will also be (a) main file(s) to edit.

Anyone of those would do , its better than this Ridge Racer handling :P

I can't even fathom how someone could turn a racer with no manual transmission into one that enables it. Was it in the code somewhere and just dissabled for the console FPS kiddies?

Also, how does the steering lag fix work with both a wheel and a game pad? Thanks for the vid HazewinDog. Could you make one showing the reaction time between the steering wheel to the movement on screen? Or even with a gamepad in the same view as the video screen?

Now it makes the game somewhat worthwhile to play. Thanks a lot Racer_S.

If I had to guess, I’d say that the tool simply intercepts a memory value and “holds” it without giving the app a chance to alter anything before it receives manual input from the player via a custom key. As “magical” as it sounds (and as admirable as it is, of course) this wouldn’t be the first time, really. There are manual transmission (and gas consumption) hacks for GTA SA, for instance.

Racer_S has done a great camera hack (complete with a speedo, I think) for that game as well. And his take on the concept for MW is simply spectacular! I particularly appreciate the fact that you can assign custom angles to the keys of your choice and recall them at any time, allowing for smooth camera sweeps.

Something like that should be included in every racing game as a default, “factory” feature, if you ask me.

man... you surprised me for not knowing gt would be released this week. Some shops were delivering it last week already, and there were tons of videos from it on youtube.

I don't follow video games and release dates in general. I usually find out about a games existence by a demo release. I didn't even know the HP3 demo was out until a week after it was released. GT5 I just thought was going to be next spring last I remember reading. NFS is the only racer I've "followed" over the years.

I got my hands on a steering wheel, but now i tried to play the game using your mod, it crashes directly (no error).

So after that i tried editing some stuff in your .ini and it turns out the game only works when "USEFFB=0" and not when "USEFFB=1".

I dont know if this happens to more people, but i would like to get this fixed at either side. :)
