How can I steer my vehicle in games without the in-game wheel?

Many racing games give you other options for steering your vehicle, such as tilting your device, using a touchpad, etc.

You can use the following controls in BlueStacks 5 to steer your vehicle in such games:

  • Tap spot control: This control can be used in games where you have to touch certain parts of your screen to steer your vehicle.
  • Tilt control: This control can be used in games where you need to tilt your device to steer your vehicle.
  • Swipe control: This control can be used in games where you need to swipe across the screen to steer your vehicle.
  • D-pad: This control can be used if you need to use a touchpad to steer within a game.

Based on your game, add the required controls from the Controls Editor and then click on "Save".
