I am running Storm Racer G on both Teknoparrot Patreon and on J-Config experimental launcher created by FlyBit.
Let begin with addressed issues for some users whom cant launch Storm Racer G using J config for the below reason:
Issue address : Cannot launch - xinput_1.4. dll is missing .
Debugging the issue : xinput_1.4.dll is a set of dll files embedded starting windows 8 and above. Basically All win 7 users will have problems launching steam games or other utilizing this file.
- Download Xinput_1.3.dll 32 bits version and extract this file to the bin folder of SRG after you have extracted Jconfig and usb_io.dll into the same bin directory and extracted the save file from assets into SRG/assets/ replace savefile.dll. (better to backup the original in case you would like later on to use in TP).
N.B : This is very important , Do not map the controls in Jconfig before extracting the xinput_1.3.dll and renaming it to xinput_1.4.dll.
After successfully completing this step, open J config in order to map the controls .
Before mapping the controls , if the game crashes upon launch you might be better by disabling the Direct3d9 wrapper .
-If you are using the xinput joystick, please select xinput from the drop down list.
If you are using Direct-input or Logitech wheels, make sure to set as below:
- Enable POVsends AxisXY
- Enable for Analog
- Do not select Fake steering or pedals.
- In order to map buttons such as start, coins ,test , boost , up and down , exit. make sure to set in logitech profiler to combined settings.
- In order to map left /right steering analog and pedals x and Y , remove the combined first.
-On my testing , when selecting force feedback in the settings of Jconfig, this will cause no controls to be hooked to game upon launch . I advise to keep it deselected. (Ofcourse you can try it yourself, each user can have things work for him/her differently.)
Issues in Jconfig :
-Brake is inverted . It works , but when releasing the gas , the car auto brakes and drives backwards. Couldn't find a fix
-Boost/nitro can only be mapped to analog input. (update: IT works but when only mapped to an analog shifter " Does not work with g27/20 shifters. Ca be mapped to another hooked flight simulator joystick)
-Auto/ Manual Drifting selection Panel in the selection screen is missing .
-The game slows down on occasional courses . (Disregard)
-Force feedback seems not to work on Logitech wheels in win7. Others try on Win 10 to see if it is possible.
Enjoy for now.
