If you're talking Shawn's tweaks, then absolutely, Ivan, they will work fine

I've got a fair amount of slop around center in my G25, I'm trying these potential solutions now, I figured I'll play guinea pig with these settings, and report back if they work, if not I'll delete the links.

One thread suggests a fix using dxtweak, the other is .ini settings.

http://forum.rscnet.org/showthread.php?t=277669&highlight=slop


http://forum.rscnet.org/showthread.php?t=271369&highlight=slop&page=12


Of the ini tweaks I've done so far, the best result was changing to the following enty in the .ini:

FFB steer force neutral range="0.01200" // Max distance from center "neutral force" location where forces are reduced to help avoid oscillation (0.0 to disable)

The problem becomes the odd way FFB tries to resist you as you move the wheel from top dead center. . .if you remove all the deadzone, the oscillation wants to start up, and ping-pong the wheel back and forth when you straighten it. It does seem that increasing the damper value reduces this some, but since most of you suggest not doing that I went back to a zero value, and just messed with deadzone values until the oscillations seemed to be less of an issue. . . and in my case I ended up at .01200.


I'll update as I find other things that seem to work.

Grinn.. forgot to report back on that btw...

But i pm'd you about it, just forgot to post.

For Rfactor i'm using these settings, attached to shawn's post.
Good enough for me, but hey.. let the tweaking commence, by all means, Shawn didn't name this the "perfect" for nothing!

and yes.. it's a controller.ini tweak.

Yes, Stein, I tried those before. . .at the time I didn't notice much difference from what I had been running, but this was after compiling a few different post suggestions into my FFB settings. They seemed to work well enough so I incorporated some of the changes into my settings. Despite that, there was still more deadzoen than I would like, and drafting in particular was a challenge as there was minimal feedback around center. I'm just trying to see what minimal deadzone I can get away with is. I've heard of others with the same issue, so I thought I'd post.
