    I just got a 2.5, V3 pedals, with Porsche wheel. Out of box it's way to strong. What setup would you suggest I try, and any tips on the setup?

    First, on your wheel settings turn your DPR and SPR settings to 0/off. I think the DRI setting is different on the 2.5 than my V2 but I believe you want to be in the middle of the available options to get unassisted rotation (adjust to taste), someone please correct me if I'm wrong on this one. SEN should be set to Auto so the game can set your wheel rotation based on what the car has in real life. I've always heard it's best to keep your FF at 100 and lower the in-game gain if it's too heavy/strong. You can also try turning the FOR down a bit but I generally leave that at 100 and do my adjustments in game.

    In AC you adjust the strength with the gain slider and then use the road/slip/curb sliders if you want to amplify those individual feelings a bit, so if it's too strong try turning the gain down. And don't forget you can adjust the FFB of each car by using the +/- keys on the number pad when you're on track.

    My v2 wheel settings for AC:
    SEN = AUT
    FF = 100
    LIN = OFF
    DEA = OFF
    DRI = OFF
    FOR = 40 (This was the key setting that kept me from enjoying AC FFB until I got it right, some people like 30 better and that might be more appropriate for v2.5 wheels)
    SPR = OFF (unneeded artificial effect if turned on in most sims)
    DPR = OFF (unneeded artificial effect if turned on in most sims)

    In-game, use the FFB tool to set in-game force and avoid clipping. Remember clipping occurs before the wheel sees the signal, so that automatic tool is very helpful.

    Hi Inouk,
    I have a V2.5 too. I believe from the wheel setup from the V2 to the V2.5 differs in a few things (also depends on the firmware your are on)

    My settings are:
    SEN = AUT
    FF = 100
    SHO= 100
    ABS= 50
    DRI= -05 (the biggest difference from a V2 setup. Here -05 its similar to 0 in a V2)
    FOR = 100
    SPR = OFF
    DPR = OFF

    In game I only set the gain to 65, the rest just as it comes as default

    I also agree with having the FFB tool makes a big difference. Especially when you drive different cars often. And read the manual because there are really good explanations on how every setting affects the force feedback feeling of the wheel.

    Thanks, this will help big time.
    I'm faster with the new wheel on just stock setup.
    I can't wait to try your settings.
    The cars are alive, and I can do things that I could never do with my G25.

    Hate to show my ignorance, but just where are you putting the settings you mention above? Also, what FFB tool are you using.
    Thanks for your help.

    The V2.5 has input on the wheel to set FFB in game and it's way cool.

    Thanks guys. I think I have a real nice setup with your help.
    Having this wheel feels kind of like cheating. :sneaky:

    No worries jkoppenhaver, we all started not knowing, good thing that you are asking and trying to improve :D

    Haha I felt the same, you get quicker but more importantly, more consistent...
    Good luck with it!
