    i haven't test it but i imagine the more G-force a turn produce the blurrier the vision gets like in reality

    To get the best Immersion i set both G-Force Simulation and Cockpit Camera Movement to max.
    Look to Apex is a different animal, since different numbers means usually a relearning of brake/turn-in/acceleration points for each track (you drive whereat you look).
    I choose actual 44% to get an idea where the bloody bends are in street circuits like Macau, Pau and Vara when turning in. :victory:

    Never had an interest in trying to recreate the real thing at my computer desk. If I want the real thing Ill go do it :)

    GForce Simulation = Moves the view around as defined in the headphysics.hed (.ini for rF) file.

    Look-to-apex = Moves the view left or right, responding to steering axis input, scaled to percentage value.

    Cockpit camera movement = Defines whether the head position is locked to the car (100%), or the ground that the car is moving over (0%) - it works backwards to the way you'd think by the description alone (0% isn't 'off', 100% is - but that's a subjective thing)

    Tried different options, but at the end I'm using the default, it's fine for me:)

    No, when you put everything on 0% nothing moves and the camera is stiff as hell :D

    Well; the car moves relative to the camera at 0%, and the track moves relative to the camera at 100% - your call as to which way around it should go.

    No he's right Bram. Cockpit Camera at 100%, there is no movement. At 0% it is moving.

    But I think that's because I have G-Force and Look to Apex turned on.

    With your setup Bram, you have those turned off, so I don't think your cockpit camera setting makes any difference.

    That's why I love this place. I always get great info here and learn stuff I didn't know. RD is the best! :in-love:

    Used to have Cockpit cam and G-force sim set to 100%

    Always drive in cockpit view and had presumed it would give me some extra visual cues to drive by, without ever really testing what it was like at different levels.

    Had a play with the settings the other day and realised that the settings were to high, and would give me the sense I was about to loose the car, over a curb or such, when in fact I wasnt.

    Turned them both down to 10% now, and the difference isn't hugh but you still get the visual cue to whats happening with the car, but its not exagerated to the point were it gives you false information.

    I use defaukt settings, I find it much easier to control the car. I tried it on different settings, it was much harder. Maybe as I get better at racing, I'll increase the percentage.
