Exclamation DiRT 3 PC Split-screen problem

In Splitscreen mode it says "Player 2 press start", but when I press enter on keyboard or start on the controller nothing happens.
How can I fix this ?

P.S. When I connect my Hama Black Force controller, the keyboard stops working in the menu and only the controller works, and when I disconnect the controller, keyboard works again in the menu screen. Why can't they both work at the same time, so one player takes the controller and other keyboard?

Controllers in games tend to override keyboards/mice. And using 2 keyboards would be impossible as far as i can see knowing windows would not permit them running individually, and i don't think anyone bothers creating software for either of those.

The setup you suggest could work given coding is implemented for it. But I'm guessing its just such a odd
combo (Not to mention GFWL probably doesn't like that.) that it probably goes completely unnoticed.

I don't see why a controller and a keyboard running together wouldn't work other then that.

I use two controllers for co-op, and no problems so far.

Maybe try going into the controls settings, and setting up each player? Select Player 1 and highlight 'Keyboard' then chose Player 2 and select 'Controller'.

DiRT 3 doesn't have this kind of options in controls settings.

So I guess I need to buy one more controller?

Yeah, your probably going to have to by a second. It's just such a odd combo that it goes unnoticed.

I'm assuming I can't use a wheel and keyboard combo either, only a controller?
Can I even use the wheel at all for split screen?

Yeah, i decided to mess with the split-screen by myself. You can use a keyboard and a controller. (At least with Xbox 360 Controller.)
