    Car will only steer left? My wheel works in several other Steam games with no issues. I've tried validating files successfully.
    Funny thing is that after calibrating my wheel in-game, and checking results of the calibration, I do see an anomaly. Steer Left graphic bar is solid green. Steer Right graphic bar is tapered green. ??

    Do have another controller plugged in? Did it work before?

    No other controller plugged in. Yes, it worked before and in other games.

    The old standby...rename your USERDATA folder and reconfigure. Maybe something got messed up. (when you rename the folder to something like userdataOLD the game will create a new one when you fire the game up again.

    Userdata folder is found here: C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\rFactor 2\UserData

    The controller.json itself should be enough, to avoid replacing everything else as well. Sounds like the axis config is indeed messed up. Maybe just reassigning steer left and steer right, and setting 'set max L', 'set max R', and 'set center' will do it, too. But the .json should take care of it anyway.

    So, renamed the Userdata folder as suggested and yes, the game did create a new Userdata folder (empty as expected).
    However, when I start the game and click on Start, the screen goes black (as noted in a previous post:
    Black Screen, message: input not support. That was fixed by correcting the refresh rate of my monitor to 60Hz. Well, my monitor is still set at 60Hz. Wow, I'm having a lot of issues with this game!

    Damn...ok. Replace your old userdata folder and just delete the controller.json inside like @Lazza suggested.

    I have G27 wheel, you can have a copy of my controller file if you wish.
    Back up your old one first.

    Hi Dj, thanks for the offer, but I'm coming to the conclusion that my wheel is bad. If I unplug the power cord of the wheel, I am still able to use the brake and throttle, but no steering.

    Tried all of the above but still the same. I'm coming to the conclusion that my wheel is bad. If I unplug the power cord of the wheel, I am still able to use the brake and throttle, but no steering.

    Try this. It may work for you.

    edit: see if the steering wheel axis (left and right) shows up in this program. I use this to calibrate my worn out pedals and it works.

    Alright Dj, I used your file after all and it works. Your set-up is a lot different than mine. I like it but it's a bit skittish, almost like too much air in the tires. I'll keep using it for awhile to see if I can adapt to it. Thank you!

    I couldn't find the link even though I watched the video twice. I decided to use Dj's controller file and it works.
