F1 2013 - Unwanted Steering Assistance

    Hi Folks!

    I have found an issue where F1 2013 automatically provides Steering assistance. I couldn't work out why I was putting in the same amount of steering angle in 7th gear corners at 280kph as I was in hairpins at 40kph

    Then after some quick research I discovered something that wheel users must do (not sure if its selected by default. Mine wasn't). In the controller options, MAKE SURE you select 'Override input device type' to be 'Steering Wheel'.

    It has changed the game for me. Loving it now. Totally different game...

    Let me know if this solves your issues..

    Yeah, this was a recommended setting for F1 2012 also.

    If you don't do this, the steering is biased for controller use, with their limited fidelity, rather than steering wheels.

  3. This is excellent, thank you.
  4. Yeah it makes a huge difference, I did it right away as I assumed there must be a bug in the controller setup because the wheel felt so heavy and lifeless until this option is enabled.

    Good find and all wheel users need to know about it !
  5. If you had already done this and are still experiencing wheel issues where you get that unwanted steering assistance... Make sure your vsync is on. That fixed things for me :)

    The vsync thing is really for those sudden random left and right kicks you get with the G27.

    As you say, if you are having G27 problems, then it is certainly worth trying it out :)
  7. Well, I got those random left and right kicks you speak off. But more often than not what happened was that my wheel steered in the direction of the corner, like a magnet. So... it fits really well with your description of the 'unwanted steering assistance'.

    I figured I'd mention it in case someone wondered here based on the thread title :)

  12. I have got the same problem that my wheel steeres in the direction of the corner but I am playing on Xbox 360. Can anyone help with this problem?
  13. Have you tried the above?
  14. The option 'Override input device type' is not existing on xbox 360
  15. Dan - OMG!!! That was it!!! I thought I was going nuts! My friend with an older Logitech Momo Force didn't have the problem I was having with my G27. Now it's working great! Thx

    I thought that @Dan Hawkins was on the Eggbox 360?
  17. Sorry if this is off topic ... but I get sudden left kicks in my steering FFB when going through curves at Suzuka ( Fanatec Porsche Wheel Turbo S ).

    It is really annoying and I have tinkered with the FFB effects file and settings but it persists. I have the steering override enabled in options.

    Anyone else have this problem ?

    Have you tried turning on Vsync and seeing if it makes any difference?
  19. For the PC users, if you customize the actionmap for your wheel to your liking you don't have to change the override from default. Problem happens when you customize your buttons in the game set up and don't do the suggested fix from Dan.
  20. yeah I have vsync on from within the game ... do you mean turn on vsync from the nvidia panel ? and daveo I have a custom made actionmap file for my Fanatec PWTS but I still turn on steering wheel overide else it doesn't feel as responsive.
