    I was wondering if there was any way that I could bind the scroll wheel to the throttle in-game. I'm sure it isn't possible but its worth a shot

    Thanks!

    You could bind throttle to mouse Y axis and steering to your mouse X axis. It's not ideal but at least your throttle control is better than with arrow keys

    If you have an phone, you can download a third part remote control app that lets you configure controllers and stuff. I use it everytime I play beam..

    App is called Monect.
    You have to download on the pc as the server and has to be on the same wifi or internet connection.. and then connect.

    I custom configured an xbox style controller,
    I use one of the triggers as a slider for throttle and brake, the other as an analog slider handbrake coz y not.
    One analog stick up/down as analog clutch
    Same stick left/right disabled. I used the g sensor as the left/right analog steering (just hope your g sensor exists or is configured properly)
    FFB is basically vibrations and I have it disabled.
    The rest of the controls are usual as the xbox controller. You can customise if you wish.

    one of the fastest guys on the FnTuners MP race mode is using mouse throttle and steering, so that is definitely a viable option haha

    I do not understand how some people don't understand when some of us say we're tight on money. Just because we have money in a savings, doesn't mean that we want to spend it. Its called financial control, learn it please.

    Some of us have bills to pay.

    If you have a spare mouse, could you rig one mouse up for acceleration by attaching it to a cardboard HOTAS and using another for steering?

    thrift stores around me have flight sticks. i picked up a fairly new logitech and set the controls to the game and it was a strange experience. the stick was a 3D extreme flight pro that i found in michigan (not where im from but still) for $8
