Fanatec CSW v2 settings

Discussion in 'DiRT Rally' started by Chadd, Oct 13, 2015.

  1. I am getting overwhelmingly frustrated with this game with the settings on my wheel. I can never get the car to respond to my liking and about ready to give this up. I have searched all over the place and tried numerous different settings and still can't find anything that works. Can anyone please help if the have settings for the Fanatec CSW V2 wheel for in game and on the wheel. Thank you in advance
     
  2. +1 here, can get it to turn

    My CSW 1 feels fantastic !
    Didn't know there was such huge difference !

    Would like to see what settings everyone is using with the V2. In-game and profiler.

    You have of course calibrated your wheel in DR ?

    After the last update, DR won't even see my wheel now. Only lets me see my keyboard in the set up page. When I open the gams and it says select enter or start, pressing any button on the wheel does nothing.

    I'll post up my settings when I get in later. I do alter the SEN on the wheel depending upon which stages I'm driving as it makes a massive difference. In the driver I set it 900. But on the actual wheel itself Greece and Wales I set it to 380 degs where as finland I have to drop it to 330. For Germany I up it to 480. Every ones driving styles are different though and how/what you want to feel. I will check the other wheel settings and post up. The other thing I've noticed is the car setups. I've only played around with the 2001 scoob on finland but boy what a difference once I tweaked just a few settings on the car. On standard settings I found the stages sooo hard but I then set the brake bias more at the front and then the diffs more towards loose settings - and bingo I can really throw and drift the car around and control miles better with throttle and brake without it constantly oversteering etc and the fun factor went up 200% !

    Ok as promised here are my settings :
    Driver = rotation 900 damping 100

    On wheel (universal hub with sparco wheel)
    Sen = as described in previous post depends on stages
    FF=100
    sho=100
    Abs=75
    Lin=off
    dea=off
    dri=003
    For=100
    Spr=100
    dpr=100
    Brf=030

    Other than that I set brake and throttle saturation at 0% (to get instant response default is 20%) under wheel settings

    And under vibration and feedback :
    Self align torque 50%
    Soft lock 85%
    Everything else 100%

    But do play with the setups too as per previous post
    Hope this helps
    Cheers

  9. These settings feel really good, but I don't know what Brf is??? I just started using this wheel from a Thrustmaster T300 and I couldn't whip this wheel around as easily as I could the T300. I think the thing that was throwing me off was the Dri. But I will definitely be using these settings for myself. Thank you

    That's what I'd like to know too because I sure don't have that on my CSW 1 ?

    Chadd/Mikaela, apologies the BRF setting is only there if you have the Club sport V3 pedals as well. If you haven't got those pedals you won't see that setting in the wheel tuning menu.

    And could it mean Brake Fade perhaps :rolleyes:

    Nearly......Brake Force :) Lets you adjust the amount of force needed on the pedal to react.
    From the manual:
    Enter the Tuning Menu and navigate to parameter ‘BRF’ (brake

    force; is only shown if ClubSport Pedals V3 are connected to the
    wheel base) with default value 030. Change the value for ‘BRF’

    according to your favourite setting within the range 030 to 100:
    - Value 100 is original setting, no scaling of brake signal resistance
    - Value 030 is scaling the brake signal resistance by factor 3 (default
    value)

  14. Are the V3 pedals a huge improvement over the V2 pedals?

    I wouldn't know as this is the first Fanatec kit I've owned :) I have played on the very early pedals and these are in a different league to those not surprisingly. I'm not using the damping kit but the feel of them and quality are really good especially the brake pedal where you can adjust the stiffness and they give you a stiffer spring to put on the gas pedal if you wanted. Not cheap though! :sick:
     
  16. Does this apply to this date?

    Thanks Mate, I'll give these a go see how they feel, I too struggle to get the cars to respond to my steering inputs.
    Anyone else want to share their V2 setups?

    Cheers

  20. Does anyone have more recent recommended settings for the CSW V2 since it has now released on consoles?
