Burnout Paradise G27 Settings
- Open the Logitech Profiler
- Select New > Profile
- Add BurnoutParadise.exe as a new game.
- Open Specific Game Settings
- Leave ‘Spec Force Feedback Settings’ unchecked.
- Leave ‘Report Combined Pedals’ unchecked
- Set Degrees of Rotation to Taste
- Leave ‘Use Special Game Settings’ Unchecked
- Play Burnout and assign keys to the G27
- Map the controls to your liking.
Note: the G27 doesn’t show up until you bind a key
The secondary controls are entirely optional. Here you can adjust in-game sensitivity and steering dead zone.
There are also adjustments for the pedals, but I don’t see a casual gamer ever needing these. Adjusting the dead zone here would mean less play in the center of the wheel, but also more difficulty in driving straight.
