  • I have a ferrari 458 italia wheel and I’m also having this problem and I’ve tried to update drivers through the device manager and even through the thrustmaster website but the thrustmaster website directs you to the xbox support site. The game doesn’t seem to recognise the wheel but instead as a controller

    • Do you have a controller? if yes then remove the controller drivers. Try and see this fixes the problem.

      If this doesn’t fix, connect the controller back again, now launch the game. disconnect the controller and connect your wheel and press any button on the wheel and tell me if this works.

    • El juego tiene tantos problemas, lo único que podemos hacer en el cajero automático es volver a conectarlo varias veces o actualizar los controladores o deshabilitarlos y volver a habilitarlos.

  • Guys, I’m kind of frustrated. I got myself a Logitech G920 just so I could play Forza Horizon 5 with a wheel. Unfortunately, when the wheel is plugged into my computer, when I run Forza Horizon 5, it just crashes at the intro. So, I unplugged the wheel from my computer, and guess what? The game has loaded perfectly and I could drive around using my keyboard. So, I tried plugging the wheel back into the computer while in game, but all of a sudden, the game crashed instantly after my steering wheel got plugged in. Tried to find some ways to resolve this issue, but it seems like nobody has this problem. Is there anyone who can tell me what to do or how to fix this? Thanks.
