    You have 2 options for the track fix
    Download the install version that converts all the tracks with a GDB fix.
    or manually alter the file,
    Back up the original so it can be replaced or use the GSCsync to reconvert the track after use. providing you have it pointing to the correct place.
    or you can edit the file with notepad yourself.

    It will look like this after the mod:

    Modded GDB:
    SantaCruz
    {
    Filter Properties = StockV8 Kart *
    Attrition = 30
    TrackName = Santa Cruz do Sul
    EventName = Santa Cruz do Sul
    GrandPrixName = Santa Cruz do Sul //this must be the same as event name in order to sort circuit info correctly.

    -------- ---------- --------
    All it does is add Kart to the filter properties. just delete Kart after use to return it to the default state
    this is the same for all the tracks the GDB file is found in each track in the locations folder.
    \GSC2013\GameData\Locations\SantaCruz\SantaCruz
    -------- ---------- --------

    Default GDB:
    SantaCruz
    {
    Filter Properties = StockV8 *
    Attrition = 30
    TrackName = Santa Cruz do Sul
    EventName = Santa Cruz do Sul
    GrandPrixName = Santa Cruz do Sul //this must be the same as event name in order to sort circuit info correctly.

    there is al;so aTDF fix to stop the wheel from rattling whilst out on track

    Please not to use this track after the fix on others servers you will have to set iy back to its default state..

    This track shakes my DFGT wheel to bits, far worse than the Salvador track.
    I have it set in game to -80% and medium. If I go to 75% there's virtually no FFB so it's like driving on ice :O_o:

    @Dave Wild looking into it now think we have a solution with the TDF file from a kart track and swap it over its real smooth then. :) will update ASAP

    how does your wheel work/perform on a kart track.
     
  7. Hi, i have also wild rattling with the G27 on this track. almost every other track is smooth with the shifter karts, apart from the pit lane, there the karts ffb always goes crazy on every track.

    They did explain that at very low speeds the wheel will rattle, or have side to side movement so that's normal, but on the track we need it to be smooth at speed

    @Rupe Wheel is OK on the kart track and was OK at Salvador apart from pit lane. One of the other February tracks for karts also causes rattles, I think it was Ribeiro.
    Thanks for looking at this Rupe.

    I can update my patch to allow kart on all the tracks with this kind of TDF file if this works, :)

    @Tobias Liesaus
    @Dave Wild
    @Andrew James
    @Paul Bennett
    @Christopher Hall-Nelson

    can you guys check out the new fix for all the tracks and tell me how the wheels feels out on track,
    Hopefully we have stopped the rattling


    or any body with a
    DFGT
    Logitech G25/G27
    Fanatec
    Thrustmaster or different wheel

    please post and tag me if its ok or not and what wheel your using.

    this mod will allow you to use the kart on all default tracks and also hs the TDF fix for the wheel rattle whilst on track i cant stop it in the pits at low speed as stated by Reiza
    please make sure you have GSCsync working as this is a good tool to revert back to the original default settings after use.

    or back up your locations folder before you start..

    thanks Rupe :)

    sorry, this patch doesn´t work for me and G27. there is no change to the wheel rattling. the first small fix you posted for Santa Cruz do sul worked just fine, but this files reverted it back to rattling.

    "undriveable" tracks: Santa Cruz do Sul, Riberiao Preto

    Only had chance to try Santa Cruz and Riberiao so far Rupe.

    Neither new fix cures the rattles at Santa Cruz. I tried one Riberiao with your previous fix and the other without and can't really tell much difference.
    I'll try to do more testing during the week.
