THIS IS CRITICAL: Before you play Forza Horizon 4, make sure you have the latest drivers and firmware for your wheel. Your wheel may work great with games that came out 1 or 2 years ago, even Forza games - that doesn't mean it'll work with a new game. This is not limited to PC users: If you are playing on Xbox, you should also make sure your drivers and firmware are up to date by connecting your wheel to a PC or laptop and downloading the latest drivers and firmware for your wheel from the manufacturer’s website.

For Logitech users, especially G920 and G29, you have to install the Logitech Software from the website; this is quite important, if you don’t install it, the G920 is picked up as a different vendor product identifier (VIDPID) and its functionality in the game is compromised, both for FFB and for buttons/switches.

Thrustmaster requires users install its latest drivers and firmware.
Thrustmaster 458 Spider
- 458 Edition
- Leather Edition
Note: If you have a Thrustmaster TX wheel, it will default to the 458 Edition, the first in the list, because all Thrustmaster TX wheels use the same vendor product identifier (VIDPID). Make sure you select the model that you have to ensure the button mappings are correct.

Multi-USB is supported in FH4. If you are using multiple devices with separate USB ports, the game may not automatically recognize them, or may only recognize one. For example, you wheel may work, but your pedals may not. You will need to create a custom wheel profile within the game if you are using multiple devices, or if you have their devices plugged into separate USB ports. The game won’t automatically map them unless they are directly connected.
We recommend that you don't use USB switches. Rather, use dedicated USB 3.0 ports on your PC. Avoid unplugging and plugging back in your wheel to USB 3.0 ports. Some wheels have been known to generate an erroneous VIDPID (Vendor ID, Product ID for USB devices) when this happens. In order for your wheel to work properly with the game, it must have the correct VIDPID associated with it.
Running in GIP Mode
If you plug in a GIP device to a PC without a driver it should function just like an Xbox Wheel. You will not get access to the advanced wheel tuning panel. When the wheel is in GIP mode, we can’t guarantee that it will always match the Xbox One. The D-pad or switches in general won’t work on some wheels unless this is properly mapped as a button (G920, for example) or when the wheel is an Xbox wheel (Madcatz, for example) that can be used on PC as well.
