I've been playing for about 2 years and im a decent level amateur racer. i would say either go full out on playing everyday or dont start playing at all. its not like a console game that u can play once in awhile and be alright at the game. There are plenty of setups posted on the mx sim forums but you really need to change ur setup as u get better with the game

If you need assistance, raise your special dampening and the special dampening factor in advanced settings. It's basically the James Stewart slider in MX Sim

Don't be afraid to try new settings and lower your sensitivity in the roll angle and leveling. Really though, just keep playing.

In chat, type /writesetup 'setupname here' to save a setup, and /readsetup 'setupnamehere' to load those settings back in. With that go crazy!

Try the fork spring rate at 100 just to see how different it feels maxed out. See how the bike handles when you slow down the damping on the shock and the fork, and then just the shock. Compare and contrast. Do it with every slider so you see what they are for. Small changes can make huge differences. If you ever need help with a basic setup, PM me I'll send you a basic one that is easy but not pure arcade mode.

Also highly recommend playing with a controller.

1. Don’t play arcade mode
2. Obviously use a controller
3. Download other tracks the stock ones are ehh
4. Ride on the lowest stability setting you can (I.e. I ride mine at 12). Increasingly go lower as your skill goes up.
5. Make it a habit to sit in corners, but don’t use sticky sit/dab
6. Gotta play consistently just like real life
7. Look up everything u don’t understand.
8. If U wanna get tracks or skins go to the mx sim forums on line.
9. You’ll need winrar to unzip skins/tracks.
If u install a track and it doesn’t work hit me up.
Have fun

My mate's been playing for less than a year and is actually pretty decent. He started off trying other peoples settings and just went with his own in the end. He plays in 3rd person. I had a go and pretty much had to let the bike go where ever it wanted to.laughing

The SIM community seems pretty unfriendly and unwilling to help new people out.

Lol nice. Enjoy the learning curve, the 'breakthroughs' in the beginning are pretty amazing when you learn how to do something sweet like a wheel tap or an oppo grin

Get a controller and use this setup:



It has great stability and makes the game a bit less hard to learn.

Most important is to keep trying, it's not a game you learn in a week like MX vs ATV or MXGP. It took me a couple of months to be able to do a lap without crashing.

100% I'd rather go out and ride. I don't have time for that BS.

When i get home ill post my setup. Been playing since 2012. Get an xbox 1 elite controller. By far the best one.

Best tip is to start on a 250f and play the default tracks till its easy. Id stay away from the tracks that the pros race on. Its really difficult.

Once you get good, you can pick it up and mess around, I don't play much anymore but when I do I pick up right back to the same speed (slow)

Bind the front and rear brakes to their own separate buttons. I wish I had done that from the start rather than having to get use to using two fingers for brakes.

You have way more control over the bike that way, especially in the air.

i double bound my left stick forward as lean forward and sit/dab. and i run sticky dab off.

when i did this it substantially changed my game.

grab someones settings to start out. adjust each setting individually to max and min until you see the reactions u get for each change and slowly learn how to play. been playing casually for 5-6 years...I play in 1st person mode (probably a rarity i'm guessing). Still the best mx game to date...has a HUGE learning curve IMO....and thats what made it great. I'm casual A rider in game.

i try to download each national/sx each week and race my ghost to get the track down. don't race much anymore but still enjoy learning each new track during seasons.

Barrington (who is here on vital) makes a lot of the tracks. His tracks nowadays are awesome IMO.

Go to Kellen's Youtube channel and watch all of his tutorial videos. Very helpful, even for an experienced cat like me!

Patience is essential.

TM's site is a good starting place for downloading whatever needed (top right corner).
