Logitech Cordless RumblePad 2 and GRID

I had a lot of trouble getting the Logitech RumblePad 2 working correctly with GRID. The steering was way too sensitive and twitchy. GRID only has built in support for the wired version of the RumblePad 2, but by editing one of the XML files you can get the cordless RumblePad 2 to work great.

First, make sure you have the latest GRID patch. Then open the actionMapPreset7.xml file which is located in the install directory under ActionMap. The standard path on a 32bit XP machine is:
C:\Program Files\Codemasters\GRID\ActionMap\actionMapPreset7.xml

On a 64bit XP machine it is:
C:\Program Files (x86)\Codemasters\GRID\ActionMap\actionMapPreset7.xml

You need to replace every occurrence of
Logitech RumblePad 2 USB
Logitech Cordless RumblePad 2 USB

Now when you go into the game controls the default preset should say Logitech Cordless RumblePad 2 at the top. You will also now be able to control the game menus from the pad. If you have trouble try creating a new game profile.
