Will you be making those sortta profiles fer the G25 in a couple of months?!  ;D


INTG8R, is a hardware expert. (Fanatic!)  I'm sure he'll be diving right into that once it comes out! (Or sooner if he can get his hands on one)

Well seeing as the GTR2 Demo seems to have support for it I might, I just might....... >:D(tho that one will be a tough one to put past the Missus as I can already hear the "But you already have a wheel?!")

LMAO.. since i'm the "Cheesy" mofo..(holland..cheese?! ok.. and tulips.. call me a bulb then.. or a windmill... a screwit)   i'm not gonna "lend" you my one m8.. hehe

The missus might think yer lying if you'd say it was mine.. and yer "just testing it"  i dont wanna get a divorce started m8.. lol

But anyways.. thx in advance oh mister hardware  ;)

It will certainly be one helluva job.. unless the codes are written the same as with the earlier model... in other words.. i hope things will get back to you once you see the codes.. lol

I think my wheel is about to suffer a catastrophic failure that will result in the sad necessity to buy a replacement ::)

Well the PLR in GTR2 is the same and my settings also work fine in it tho I think the default FF settings arent as bad as GTL

Yes those settings are "baseline" settings as far as Im concerned if its wobbling on you turn the FFB steer force output max="2.00000" down some or the overall strength in the Control panel settings for your wheel. I know these settings in GTR2 are a bit too strong and give me the wobble. so I will either turn down my FF in my Control panel or lower the output max till I get a good balance

What sensitivities do you guys run?

At the moment im trying out.

Steering, Gas and Brake at 51%.
DFP 900 degree
0% speed steering and 34.5 steering lock in garage.

this is a very liniar setup and i think it gives nice control.

I did these changes to my setting last night... :o WOW  :o

All of a sudden I can drive the "beast cars" without the feeling that at any point they could launch off the road and into the nearest (or furthest) fence.

Also tweaked some of my graphics settings in the PLR file, got some good gains.

It feels like a new game again and I managed to improve my times! I'm excited!

 Those settings are great across the board.....I've been using them since i first ran across them.
 my .PLR file seems to want to "run home to mama, and revert to previous values. I got so tired of re-entering all the values I use to suit me, that i just made a copy and plug it in whe i notice things have changed again :)

 I've played around alot with PLR file (after saving good copy first)..most of it, while fun ,was just eyecandy...like the entire interior of cars and looking in the rearview and seeing the engine an all the workings and that tiny window out the back in GT40's and the like..nice but i have a hard enough time driving as is lol     The only good things i managed was custom settings for view following wheel in turns...and getting the side-view look to look back over the rear tires

I just wanted to let folks know I plan on giving this thread a complete overhaul within the next week or so. I have just gotten a G25 and I plan on updating all the FFB info on as many wheels and games as I can SO this also falls on all of you!

I would like you folks tweaks/setups/info you all have on your wheels and setups or any decent tweaks you have may have made based on my original settings or otherwise. PM me whatever info you like, PLR's etc I will gladly accept and try out and add any useful info you all can contribute, The more Info we have the more thorough I can be(e.g Light/Med/Heavy FFB setups for each game)
Hope to hear from as many of you(this doesnt JUST mean Logitech users, the more types of wheels and info I get the better the thread can be and hopefully become the FFB reference point for any and all users.

Thanks

I'm guess that these settings ended up working well for the G25 as well?

I believe so.  He did alter them after getting the G25

I'll see if I can get Shawn to come here and give us an update on how it works with the G25 :)

Dont worry too much Brett.. it should be fine.. just dont believe every "realfeelplugin" as some mods simply dont support them.. but there are guys out there tweeking the snot outtof em and will post them in Rfactorcentral.. ill show you were if you want. (but dont believe everything.. )
These settings work wonders in above named games, even for the g25.. which was kinda amazing to find out.. hehe.. I worked em first on a Saitek R440.. worked great as well!.. lol
