NASCAR Heat 2 Gets New Update, Details Inside

Nascar Heat 2

NASCAR Heat 2 developers 704 Games announced that a new update is available for their racing title on PC, Xbox One and PlayStation 4.

You can have a look at the full details below.


– New input system, rebuilt from the ground up.

Note: Users may have to re-map their controllers. Do this in “Options -> Controls -> Configure Controls.”

– Many wheels, XInput devices, and keyboard have default configurations already set up. These should work when attached, without extra configuration.

– If your controller does not work when attached, use the keyboard to navigate to “Options -> Controls -> Configure Controls” to set it up.

– Supports using multiple input devices at once. (For instance: steer with wheel, shift with shifter, gas/brake with pedals, control overlays with keyboard).

– Deadzones can be configured in “Options -> Controls -> Other Settings.”

– Most DirectInput/XInput devices should be supported. If a device didn’t work before, try it again.

– Supports all buttons on devices, no longer limited to 20 buttons.

– Now can fully configure XBOX controllers.

– Can now assign controls to discrete functions in game. “Accept” no longer has to also control the “Race Info” display, for instance.

– Can assign buttons/keys to steer, throttle, brake, clutch, etc. Just assign “Digital Steering Left/Right”, “Digital Throttle”, “Digital Brake”, etc.

– We now support having more than one force feedback device attached to your computer.

– Player 1 and Player 2 can use different devices of any type; they don’t have to both use gamepads or both use wheels. Set this in “Options -> Controls -> Other Settings.”

– Keyboard is officially supported.
