    I have 4 gamepads,
    Logitech Wingman gamepad
    Gravis Eliminator Gamepad pro
    Saitek P220 Digital with digital Throttle
    Microsoft sidewinder dual strike
    out of all them pads, The only one that seems to work is the Microsoft sidewinder dual strike, & thats really hard to play with, so I haven't played it as much as I would like to, in till they update there gamepad support.

    Yep, I have GRID, cracking game. I play with the 360 controller which works great with this title. I changed my mobo so had to re-install Windows and therefore lost my scores, been too busy to play much since. I'd be up for a challenge, I play with no assists and manual gears. And before the moaners complain about it being too easy, ITS A GAME!! LOL

    Steel, you outta try the 360 wired controller. Works soooo well man. Because Grid is on the 360, I think the 360 controller is the best controller for it on the PC. Even the buttons within the game are colored matched to the controller. Meant to be.

    My brother has the xbox360, I'll have to see if he has a spare pad, If not & I buy one, does the wireless pad work. that would be great.

    I use keyboard most of the time. But XBox 360 wired is a option too.

    I bet that looks awesome, I also play it @ 1680x1050, but haven't tried 8x AA. Maybe you could post a SS

    For people who have non-working controller, try xpadder http://xpadder.com/download.html

    It maps certain keys on your keyboard to buttons on ure pad (e.g shoulder button 1 = space bar = handbrake)

    I just remembered it and it's a great little app

    hope this helps :toast:

    Thats not bad at all. I'm assuming thats with a discount? Normally they cost $62.99 plus tax.

    Nice SS batmang, I found another controller I had, Microsoft Sidewinder game pad pro USB. still dont work. all good controllers, they all work on need for speed titles, thats 5 pads & only one works. I think they really need to do somthing about there pad support,

    I'm using my Playstation 2 Dual Analog controller with SmartJoy PLUS USB adapter, works very well, was a pain to setup until I got the 1.10 patch installed properly, after that it was cake! I run at 1440x900, 8AA, all other settings maxed out, plays great! It is an entertaining game for sure.

    Thats odd Steel. I used a SideWinder prior to the 360 controller and it worked fine. I'm running Vista 64 as well. Stange? Go buy a 360 wired controller from best buy and see if that works. If not you can always return it.

    maybe I'm doing something wrong, I plug it in (vista OS) then go to control panel, calibrate controller, then start the game, & only see preset1 & custom. when I try & configure the pad, none of the buttons work.is there a different section for pad setup. I was also thinking on just getting this but would save me some money because I already have 5 good pads.
