    Well, normally I use my thrustmaster t300 wheel but sometimes I just want to mess around I just play with the controller, when I use the wheel I have disconnected the controller and vice versa.
    I have a 4k monitor and when I plug the wheel and turn on BeamNG, there's no problem, the game is at 3840x2160 but when I turn on the game with the xbox controller plug then the graphics options are set to 1080 and I have to change it every time I start the game.
    Also I realized that when I click on Steam to play the game when I don't have the controller plug it launches the window where is asking to clear cache, start the game, verify integrity and so on, but when I have the controller plugged just starts the game without that window.

    That's really strange.
    Can you check if Steam is going in 'Big Picture' mode with the controller connected?
    You can easily figure that by trying to open the Steam Overlay while in-game. The 'Big Picture' one has a very different style.

    There should be an option in the Steam settings to have Steam running in Big Picture mode automatically, see if you have any of them enabled.

    Yes it was activated. Thanks, I'll try later and I'll let you know if disabling this would help, see a screenshot( in spanish):

    I just try it and that was the cause, now is in 3840p again! and the box of starting options is opening with the controller plugged.

    Thanks Nadeox1, once again! ;)
