Für Dakar 18 ist ein neues Update erschienen, das sich grundlegend auf die Nutzung und Verwaltung von Lenkrädern und Controllern bezieht. So gibt es nun einen neuen Gerätemanager und einen neuen Geräte-Wizard, um Spieler bei der Konfiguration ihrer Lenkräder, Pedale, Ganghebel und Handbremsen unterstützen zu können. Es soll nun einfacher und innerhalb des Spiels funktionieren.

Sollte es Probleme mit den neuen Funktionen geben, sollten diese dem Entwickler gemeldet werden. Diese kümmern sich dann umgehend um das Bugfixing. Durch Änderungen am Code kann es übrigens erforderlich sein, die Einstellungen für Controller zurückzusetzen und neu festzulegen.
