Hi there, i'm new here, i bought gp bikes for about 1 and half a mounth, i played 2 times with gamepad and notice that it's just too realistic (physics) to be played with joystick, i've searched for bike controller in the web and appart some custom made(too expensive for me)  and the truthmaster shit one (that is no longer on sale) it simply doesn't exist, so the only way was to make it my self.

I've copied the AI System (double dragon) for the pedal. Mine looks prety ugly, no 3d print here but it works well, and it's the only thing that matters to me.

Tested it this WE and it is thousand more precise and fun than gamepad.

Nicely done fella looks sweet, I'll bet you're enjoying using it  :) You don't look silly at all with the phone on your head, what if it rings? ;)

poumpouny

Bien ouej !

It is brilliant and it seems like you have made it very quickly. Can you share the specs ? Like, what is the base, where did you find the analog controllers, what card or chip are you using etc...
Honestly, I think you should try counter steering !!

Thx,

It's pretty simple 2 USB standard joystick canibalized to serve as main board (one for the wheel and one for the pedal, needed 2 because the usb controller only have 4 analog axis and  we need 5 axis (throle, steering, clutch, front brake and rear brake ). the pedal doesn't work in milestone game since it doesn't support 2 joystick inputed in the same time . I've canibalized one other USB joystick (pretty cheap aprox 5 USD) just to take the analog controller and deport it for the (cluth and front break) then rewired to the main analog . i'v buy 2 potentiometer (1.5 USD each) for the throttle and the rear brake and wire it into the analog port. I'm planning counter steering but it seem complicated (readed the other thread).

Sorry for my english !
