FFB Deadzone Fix for Logitech G27 1.2

Little tweak to improve forcefeedback when the steering wheel is straight

  1. Piereligio
    Deadzone fix tested on Logitech G27 (I reccomend you to launch the bat file, it will open automatically the file to edit and backups it, and copies the code that you have to paste in the file manually). Should work also on other wheels with same problem, but you could have to tweak the values I've provided.

    Using this, the FFB output when the steering wheel is placed in the center will be multiplied, when driving in straights, for example.
    It won't affect the force feedback outside of that center zone.
    CENTER_BOOST_GAIN is the multiplier of the boost.
    CENTER_BOOST_RANGE is the zone width (starting from the center), where to apply the boost.

    How to install
    Semi-Automatic way:
    - Launch fixDeadzone.bat;
    - Use the search tool of notepad, search [FF_TWEAKS] ;
    - Select all the values inside that section;
    - Ctrl-V (batch already copies the code, you only have to paste);
    - Close file, clicking "Save" when prompted.

    Manual way:
    - Make a copy of original controls.ini
    - Open Documents/Assetto Corsa/cfg/controls.ini;
    - Find the FF_TWEAKS section;
    - Overwrite this code to the whole section:
    [FF_TWEAKS]
    MIN_FF=0.00
    CENTER_BOOST_GAIN=4
    CENTER_BOOST_RANGE=0.001
    - Close, clicking "Save" when prompted.

    Worked like a charm for my G29 all I had to do was change FFB Boost range to 0.000

      Strange, changing it to 0.000 it should not work at all (theoretycally, since I didn't test 0.000 value).
      BTW I'm happy that this helped :)

    Much improved over the original. Gives a lot more feeling in the centre and thus, better ability to control each car.

    Worked perfect on my G27!

    I think this is good, but I do feel quite a 'bump in the middle' now. Could you give me the original settings for [FF Tweaks] So I can revert and retest?
    1. Piereligio
      Author's Response
      [FF_TWEAKS]
      MIN_FF=0.00
      CENTER_BOOST_GAIN=0
      CENTER_BOOST_RANGE=0

      These are the original. I can reccomend you something like this, though:
      [FF_TWEAKS]
      MIN_FF=0.00
      CENTER_BOOST_GAIN=2
      CENTER_BOOST_RANGE=0.001

    I have to set too the minimum force to 16%? Or just put your mod with 0% minimum force?
    Thx
    1. Piereligio
      Author's Response
      You should put minimum force to zero.

    Nice thx... could you make this to dirt rally ?
    1. Piereligio
      Author's Response
      I don't think it's possible to that game. I don't know it at all, though. I've simply used an hidden setting of assetto corsa, for this.

    This works nicely, however it seems like when I'm at the center it tends to "clip" a bit or so it seems.
    1. Piereligio
      Author's Response
      That's because it changes often the motor used (g27 has two motors, one for right, one for left)

    does not fix the deadzone , I have G27 .. followed instructions as you provided , but deadzone is still evident.

      And why other people are happy about it? Look, or you have wrong up something in the installation (if you don't feel any difference, probably you have installed it bad), or you have low master force feedback multiplier (in that case the difference felt can be little, I guess). In that case, you can tweak the values I provided. You could increase the boost multiplier value. Too much boost causes continuous clipping when the steering wheel is straight.
