How to Play Racing Games with a Single Joystick


Most racing games require the use of two
buttons for accelerate and reverse, and also a joystick for steering. If you find
that using two buttons and a joystick at the same time is difficult then we’re
going to have a look at how you can put all the controls onto one joystick so
you can use the joystick for accelerating and reverse as well. Some
racing games will let you map all the controls onto a joystick in the in-game
control settings. If the specific game that you want to play doesn’t allow you
to do this, we’re going to show how you can do it using a Supernova Plus adapter.
So this is the supernova plus and there’s a variety of things that you can
do with the Supernova. The main reasons we usually use it, is to be able to get a
variety of different controllers working on different consoles. So for example you
could get an Xbox controller working on a PlayStation, but in this instance we’re
going to use it for the remapping function using this P button. So we have
the Supernova Plus plugged into the console and we have the controller
plugged into the Supernova Plus to remap. It’s just a case of pressing the P
button and then you’re going to press the right trigger, press the P button again,
and the light will flash and then press up on the left stick. So you’ve now
mapped accelerate onto the left stick. To do the same for brake, it’s just the same
process. So P button, left trigger, P button again, down on the left stick. So
we’ve now mapped accelerate and brake to the left stick. If you do make a mistake or
if you want to change this back, it’s just a case of holding the P button down
until the lights flash. So you can play with any joystick or controller that
works best for you and you can play using any body part that you find most
comfortable to use. So here I’m going to use a chin controller to play Forza horizon 3. I’m pushing forward on the stick to accelerate. I can pull back to brake and
reverse and then left and right movement on the stick is steering.
We find that this setup works with a variety of different joysticks and games
depending on which type of racing game a person wants to play. Some racing games
require extra buttons and you may need to use external switches for this. Thank
