Configuring DSD Pedals for use with Assetto Corsa, rFactor, etc.
There are occasions when you will see calibration irregularities in some racing titles. We have determined that some calibration routines are very sensitive when it comes to designating analogue axis inputs. Customers have indicated that unused axis inputs
on their DSD 12Bit Controller (the USB device to make our pedals go) sometimes are detected instead of the ones used to control the throttle, clutch and brake pedals. Fortunately, there is a reliable and easy workaround to make setting up the pedals
a breeze. Remember, however, CALIBRATE in windows first!
You will need the utility DXTweak. You can download at the end of this page.
Once you have DXTweak, run it. You will need to click the "Next" in the dialog box that appears where the enumerated game controllers are indicated until you reach the one named "DSD 12Bit Controller - ES". When you have that one, you will then need to
manually set the X, Y and Z axis inputs to specific values. See the graphic to the right.
Click on the Z-Axis, Y-Axis and X-Axis tabs and manually enter these values: MAX = 1024 - CEN = 512 - MIN = 1
Once you have done that for ALL THREE axis inputs (only the Z-Axis, Y-Axis and X-Axis), click the Apply button and then the Close button. When you have completed this in DXTweak you can now set the pedal inputs in AC without any trouble.
NOTE: This guide is useful for any title that uses DirectInput to receive controller information. If you like Assetto Corsa, rFatctor2/rFactor, DIRT, Cars or others, this is a valuable investment of time. Also note that we have tested
and verified proper function of this recommendation on computers running Windows 7, Windows 8 and Windows 8.1 - We STRONGLY encourage those who are on legacy operating systems to upgrade!
