Hey Team VVV members,
A year ago I made a short and simple YouTube video about how well Assetto Corsa Competizione drives with a controller. No voice over, 2 or 3 sentences of explanation text, that’s all.
It’s by far the most watched video on my channel, but I don’t have time to maintain the feedback and comments and make updates to it.
So, I thought of you guys. You’re the only somewhat professional YouTube channel that plays all kinds of racing games with all kinds of control devices. Maybe you should make a small video series that gives buying advice with some footage on how well a game is playable with a controller. Is it too stable, can you correct slides, is the steering notchy, does it support rumble (on triggers too?), how does the on-screen steering wheel react and how does it compare to playing it with a wheel and FFB support. Also: What tweaks can be made to the controller inputs (“what does sensitivity mean”, “what is gamma”, “what is smoothing” etc., maybe with a stable and faster but more difficult controller setup).
I bet tons of people would watch it. Many felt burned with pCARS1’s out-of-the-box controls and are now weary to buy another sim or any game even that most pro players play with a steering wheel.
Visiting older games and giving them grades on controller play vs. FFB-wheel play would also be fascinating to me as I think that FFB-support made a big step at the time of Assetto Corsa and DiRT Rally 1 Early Access. I might be completely wrong though.13/11/2019 at 4:59 pm #70050Alan BoistonKeymasterPoints: 467Rank: Newbie
Sounds good to me Tyler.
I guess we need a list of titles to consider starting on then build a series, can you pop me a link to your video here?
Thanks for posting btw, I know its been a bit quiet here but that all change in the next 2-3 weeks, some series work starting again to build this community.14/11/2019 at 6:33 pm #70087
It’s really nothing special, just a few laps.
I made it as a reply to a ResetEra user asking about controller handling in ACC, thought it would get 20 views or so.
It has 2800 now (I know it’s not really much, but it’s also not a great video and I have less than 20 channel subscribers).18/11/2019 at 12:34 pm #70140Alan BoistonKeymasterPoints: 467Rank: Newbie
Thanks Tyler, I’ll have a look and put together a few ideas on how we can do this. Might share the odd test video here.18/11/2019 at 6:46 pm #70146
