Note for PC:

We are aware of a bug concerning the backup of steering wheel settings. This bug causes the deletion of such settings and hinders you from creating new bindings. Should this come up, you will observe that the binding menu simply closes causing the game to be unresponsive to any inputs. This situation can be solved by deleting the "InputPreset.sav" file in the following location:

C:\ Users\ [UserName]\ AppData\ Local\ BusSimulator21\ Saved\ SaveGames\

We will release a hotfix soon to tackle this issue.
