    I notice some strange diffference between the simbin games and rfactor as i comes to default setup of the wheel.

    What preferences should i use for the "G" ?

    The settings are not in the plr file but you can create and ini file for this.

    First thing to do is make a new controller profile.

    So go into the controller menu and down the bottom where it says (AZkeyboard) delete that and type in a profile name of your choice (Default etc).

    Then hit save. This will make a profile with all you current key allocations etc exactly as you have it set at that time.

    Now do the same thing again but call it something different (G25) for example.

    In the Rfactor folder you find the created ini file and you can edit it with my Race07 settings.

    Now start up rfactor and load that profile and it will have your FF settings. Load 'Default' if you want to go back to your old settings. Note you don't have to load it each time, it will default to which ever setup you loaded last.

    Thanks TechWizard :)
     
  4. What i do for F1RFT mod and force feed back (others mod it works too i think)

    I put on setup rfactor controller window :

    -100% (negative value for G25 on Rfactor)
    Wheel
    Complete

    After that, i found the files : C:/program/rfactor/userdata/"profil"/controller(.ini) ,
    then i replace the corresponding lines with those :

    FFB Device Type="1" // Type of FFB controller: 0=none 1=wheel, 2=stick/custom, 3=rumble pad.
    FFB Effects Level="4" // Number of FFB effects to use: 0=No Effects, 1=Low, 2=Medium, 3=High, 4=Full, 5=Custom.

    FFB Ignore Controllers="0" // Do not use FFB on: 1=controller1, 2=controller2, 4=controller3 (or add values to ignore multiple controllers)
    FFB Throttle FX on steer axis="1" // 0 = Throttle effects on throttle axis, 1 = throttle effects on steering axis.

    FFB steer force max change="100.00000" // Maximum change per second based on current difference between calculated and applied force, to help avoid jerky behavior (values under 15 or so should reduce jerkiness, 100 disables)

    FFB steer force output max="1.80000" // Maximum force output of steering force, recommendation 0.8 to 2.0
    FFB steer force grip function="0.55000" // Range 0.0 to 1.0 (previous hardcoded value was 1.0) - lower values will make steering force decrease LATER as front tire grip is lost - try 0.3
    FFB steer force grip weight="0.90000" // Range 0.0 to 1.0, recommended: 0.4 to 0.9. How much weight is given to tire grip when calculating steering force.
    FFB steer force grip factor="0.60000" // Range 0.0 to 1.0, recommended: 0.2 to 0.6. How much of a factor the front wheel grip is on the steering weight.
    FFB steer front grip fract="0.06000" // Range 0.0 to 1.0 (previous hardcoded value was 0.0), additional effect of front grip loss on steering force
    FFB steer update threshold="0.00000" // Amount of change required to update steer force/vibe (0.0 - 1.0). Lower values = steering force updated more frequently = lower frame rate.
    FFB steer friction coefficient="0.17500" // Coefficient to use for steering friction. Range: -1.0 to 1.0
    FFB steer friction saturation="1.00000" // Saturation value to use for steering friction. Range: 0 - 1.0

    FFB rumble strip magnitude="0.25000" // How strong the rumble strip rumble is. Range 0.0 to 1.0, 0.0 disables effect.
    FFB rumble strip freq mult="0.60000" // Rumble stip frequency multiplier 1.0 = one rumble per wheel rev.
    FFB rumble strip wave type="0" // Type of wave to use for vibe: 0=Sine, 1=Square, 2=Triangle, 3=Sawtooth up, 4=Sawtooth down.
    FFB rumble strip pull factor="-0.50000" // How strongly wheel pulls right/left when running over a rumble strip. Suggested range: -1.5 to 1.5.
    FFB rumble strip update thresh="0.07500" // Amount of change required to update rumble strip effect (0.0 - 1.0)
    FFB jolt magnitude="1.00000" // How strong jolts from other cars (or walls) are. Suggested Range: -2.0 to 2.0.

    (after my original is saved of course)

    And my forcefeebback is perfect

  5. anyone know how i can get rid of the dead zone in the black momo wheel ?


    dice

    On this page you can find several tweak programs, they are safe to use but read the manuals.

    I would suggest DXtweak or DXtweak2, to remove deadzones.

    And you need to set deadzones in the game also to 0%, but i think you already did that.

    Good luck!

    marcel, i can't delete the controller profiles. there's no button for that. only save and load??
    any help??

    You need to do that outside RF, go to the explorer and there you can delete the profiles as you wish.
