    Default Control

    Grabbed it off Steam and installed, it really does an excellent job of bringing the classic WO feel.
    I tried it out with keyboard, and that really didn't fly. Just, doesn't work for me. Nothing new there, rarely have I been able to play a racing game via keyboard controls, but this game obviously needs and deserves a serious controller.

    So, what are the options here?
    I've read that the XBox controller works well, but I've no idea how to plug that into my PC.

    Looking for some guidance!

    Hey there, glad you're enjoying the game

    The game should support pretty much anything you throw at it in terms of controllers, the game by default is setup to work out of the box with an Xbox controller but of course you can rebind everything. I think for wireless Xbox controllers you can get a USB dongle that will allow you to use it, otherwise you can get USB versions. If you have a Dualshock 3 or 4 controller then you can also use those by just using any Micro USB-USB adapter to plug it in then install appropriate drivers. There used to be Motionjoy for Dualshock 3, though I think it has vanished as of recently, for Dualshock 4 you can get DS4Windows which will install the drivers you need and give you a small application to run in the background while you use it.

    For older Dualshock controllers you can get different types of converters, Rockfire being the one I have. Using this I've been able to play BnG using a Negcon, the setup is a bit fiddly because the inputs are a bit screwy but once it's setup it works just fine.

    Just to add onto what Snake has already said- MotionInJoy sends data packets to China for some odd reason and is generally just a bad idea.

    I use ScarletCrush, which basically tells Windows you're using a 360 controller. You can grab that here, if that works!

    I haven't got a way of plugging an XBox controller into my PC, but I've definitely got a couple PS3 controllers.

    So I tried out that Scarlet.Crush thing, it certainly looks like what I'm after!

    A couple of installations later, still not working. The stuff is running, but the game doesn't pick up anything. Dang.

    SCP Toolkit is an evolution of Scarlet Crush. It has worked quite well for me with my PS3 controller. Still have to try it on the latest build of BNG, though.

    Anyway, this should hopefully solve some of your issues.

    Yeah, that's the latest one I've been trying. No joy with that one, either.
    I've submitted a bug report on the GitHub page, so we'll see what happens with that.
    On the plus side, a NullReferenceException is usually really easy to fix.

    But, dude, needless quoting...
