Just a quick poll Wink

What are you usually using to drive in your favourite game ?

1. Keyboard
2. Mouse
3. Analogic gamepad
4. Classic gamepad
5. Steering wheel + pedals
6. Joystick
7. Brain-computer interface

Combination of several possible...!
Thx !!!

Turn / direction : analogic
Boost / brake : buttons

I use the same basic pad

I use the same basic pad layout below in all games. Simulators have gear change as well so I use the buttons above the triggers for that and another for handbrake. If a game offers brake bias adjustment I map that into the controller too.

Xbox 360 wireless pad: analog everything - steering with left stick (with a domed PS style stick cover with dimpled grip), brakes and throttle on triggers. Not a great setup for speed drift in TMUF and Maniaplanet but works for most other things just fine.

I broke too many membrane keyboards, the domes wore out. I may get a Logitech mechanical one at some point, their Romer G switches are nice, I'm not keen on Cherry red switches.

Kind of related as it affects latency

NVIDIA's latest GeForce driver offers a new NULL setting for G-Sync and G-Sync compatible displays that claims to reduce latency between player input and on screen response massively while offering tear free gaming still.

It's kind of hard to explain so probably better to read about it for yourself here, the news release also gives details about how to enable the new setting:

I'm trying it out with different games to see if I can spot any difference. MP looks the same to me, I might need to try something more demanding Steve

Interesting! Thx for your

Interesting! Thx for your answers Smile
So I think we have a cocktail about hardware used... keyboards, pads, analogic/buttons...

I have already tried the analogic stick to boost/brake, may be it has a better control of speed ? But when I see your levels on driving, every peripherals we are using look like ok to gain some .001s on a lap Wink

So let's continue on the way we are comfortable Smile

@Anti, yes I think AMD has his Freesync tool too. I'll try to think about that when finding new hardware next time Wink It can be interesting to gain some FPS and optimising tearing without asking more to the videocard Wink Nice technologies Smile

Not sure but...

NULL is not about increasing FPS but reducing lag from keyboard/controller to screen action. I'm not sure why NVIDIA thought it necessary but my impression is that maybe it's more for 4K resolution 60 Hz panels where latency may be an issue due to the lower refresh rate or Freesync panels that don't have the G-Sync module? There's no discernible difference with my hardware at any rate.
