    Racing games are meant to be played with Gamepads only. Buy one, that fits your budget.
    You can try Blur.

    Blur is a game and not a controller.

    Question Re: Gamepad for Split Second

    Hello
    The good news for me is that 'Blur' is also compatible on my laptop. But this makes me confuse that which one should I buy now
    So I read the review of Split Second Here and that of Blur Here which makes me double minded
    Actually I want to play as a single player , no multiplayer mode. So which one of it you guys would suggest me?
    Thanks again
    Hope 4 d best n Do d right :)

    What are the specs on your laptop ?
    I have split second and it freaking sucks..
    The graphics and concept is good but IDK I never liked it EVER..
    But do note that it is one of the rare PC games that have fully functional split screen support

    Furtherstated tht luckily 'Burnout Paradise' can also run on lappy. I check d compatibility on SystemRequirements site. I've also gone through the review of this game on GameSpot where it is mentioned as Best Racing Game hving 9.0 Rating . So I think It makes me hard to make choice for... Nw I want to buy this very game :/
    Hope 4 d best n Do d right :)

    Blur,Split Second both are excellent games...
    graphics wise Split Second is good
    Split Second is more action oriented

    its an arcade freestyle racing (think GTA)..
    The reason I prefer that over Split second is the driving mechanism is much more fun in Burnout Paradise than in splitsecond..
    Especially the drifting part

    Actually I find Split Second more enjoying than Blur because of its weird drifting style.

    if you are play only one or two games then I don't think it would be worth to invest in a new Xbox-360 controller. check for second hand controller or cheaper alternate (which has analog trigger buttons).
    the cake is a lie.

    If you buy any other console contrller, you can easily emulate the 360 controller by using xbox360cemu.. It supports almost ALL games..
    But if u do buy something else, try to get something that has ANALOG triggers like the 360

    research a bit, and find your controller..
    I for one never liked the Xbox controller anyway (I dont like the layout)

    Check this out.. perhaps this has analog triggers ?

    If you are on a budget, Id recommend you get the Frontech JIL 1731..
    I bought it 3 years ago and its still working like a BAWZ
    I used it continuously and it worked without breaking a sweat..
    The bad thing is, it doesnt have analog triggers only digital (although in mostPC games, theres no difference)

    @Nerevarine: Analog triggers is a must for racing games, it allows one to control the speed. I too had a Frontech gamepad, but when I switched to Xbox 360 Controller, I could easily control the speed of the cars. Thats one of the reason why I didn't suggest Frontech. BTW can you check if one of the analog sticks can be used for throttle?

    You got me confused .. Is analog triggers really used for controlling acceleration ?? I used the left analog sticks for acceleration and right for reverse.. Both used together for drift.
    I use triggers for handbrake and siren
    By triggers i mean by the the upper shoulder buttons

    AFAIK yes, triggers are used for acceleration, I used one of the sticks for steering and one for free look i.e, looking at sides or back

    EDIT.. upper shoulder buttons are called bumpers, usually marked with RB (right bumper) or LB (left bumper) those are not analog, just buttons, triggers are marked at RT (Right Trigger) and LT (Left Trigger) these are analog



    I used settings like this. other buttons are not configured in the below figure.
