  2. Analog Sector 1: Adjust the sensitivity on first 1/3rd (center) sector of your analog stick.
    Analog Sector 2: Adjust the sensitivity on second 1/3rd (middle) sector of your analog stick.
    Analog Sector 3: Adjust the sensitivity on third 1/3rd (outer) sector of your analog stick.
    Return Multiplier: Adjust to change how fast the front wheels should go/snap back to center. Increase to snap faster, decrease to move slower to center.

    Please someone tell me what numbers should i enter for these 4 settings, so that it is correct. I'm using a wheel. I currently have them at 0,0,0,10.

    Thanks

    in the update it was posted

    - Updated all the controller profiles for steering fix to take affect. (Analog sectors are now 0.0 by default on steering wheels).

    im just using default setting.
    not really driven that much in the last few weeks. sorry cant be more help.
    but to me it feels allot better than before the update.

    the analog sectors are meant for game controllers like the x360 gamepad, they are not meant to be used for a wheel. So stick with the 0 setting.

  5. Guys,. And I still dont understand for what these settings are if I use Steering wheel Logitech DFGT? [​IMG]

    Hhmmm, yes ...

    At the risk of being beaten for erroneous information, but this is what I think how you should understand the parameters:
    - Speed sensitive steering: when put at zero, your steering sensitivity remains the same when you're driving at 10 km/h or when you're at max speed. This means that when you have a good responsive turn at 10 km/h, the response at 250 km/h will be very twitchy and nervous, eventually too nervous to master the car. On the contrary when the car is easy to drive at 250 km/h, you might not be able to come out of the garage and make your turn into the pit lane: the car's turning capability might be too low. Up to you to find the perfect spot.
    - Min steering speed: when the steering sensitivity is not at zero, the min steering speed is the speed below which the steering sensitivity will not apply. Above this min steering speed, the sensitivity will decrease gradually till the max steering speed is reached. The rate of decrease correlates to your steering sensitivity % you have set.
    - Max steering speed: when the steering sensitivity is not at zero, the max steering speed is the speed above which the steering sensitivity is not applied anymore.

    Steering sensitivity's purpose is to ease the steering behavior and generally applied in every day's road car's. Racing car's however become less responsive and prefer in generally to drive without steering sensitivity.

    Hope this clarifies the subject for you.

  7. so, Speed sensitive steering:=Steering linearity?
    If I want less steering sensitivity at the speed from 0 to 100 km/h, but then. more reactive control,what adjustments I need to do?
     
  8. And one thing, look at my screenshot parameters in. In this case, as I understand that, Speed sensitive steering will working on range between 250 and 350 km/h, right?

    Marco Versele
    Hhmmm, yes ...

    Steering sensitivity will be applied between 250 and 350 km/h, yes.
    But it will not be more reactive when your drive faster then 250 km/h, it will become LESS reactive. At 300 km/h, already a slight movement on the steering wheel can be catastrophic! Therefor it becomes LESS reactive at high speeds when steering sensitivity is applied. Driving without steering sensitivity is more difficult.

  10. Is the "Return multiplier" also intended to be a parameter for gamepad users only? Or does it have an effect for wheel users too? Should wheel users set it to "0" like the Analog sectors?
     
  11. Marco Versele

    Marco Versele
    Hhmmm, yes ...

    As explained in the 1st post above, it works like a centering spring. High value will make the steering wheel turn back to the center very quickly, while low values will not insist that strong for centering.
    It is for wheel users.

  12. Ok, then i'll set the "Return multiplier" also to "0", because the centering force should only come right from physics and not as a canned effect.

    But we will see what changes, when the FFB patch arrives.

    We discussed "Return multiplier" several times with the SimBin staff in the paste and they always told us, it was only for gamepads.

  14. Why Simbin are missed such important adjustments like tire pressure and tyre compound??? For real serious simulator it should be there, imo.

    Hhmmm, yes ...

    Ok, you may be right if you discussed this with Simbin staff. I can only try to help people based on my experience so far. Thanks for your clarification.
     
  16. What should I set Steering Sensitivity to in order to match 540degrees in the Logitech Profiler for a G27? The 0-100 "number" (is it a percent?) seems strange to me. 50 makes the wheel animation accurate (set to 540 rotation animation in the game options) but I want to be sure my car is actually turning at the angle I think it is. Steering lock = 18 for 15:1 ratio. Thanks
     
  17. Steering sensitivity = 50 is linear. I would recommend to set it to 50.
    I for myself driving with 540° wheel rotation and Steering lock = 24.
     
    • Agree Agree x 1
  18. People, what do you think, what is the maximum comfort and predictable ratio of steering wheel for all the cars? 540 dtgree and 27 steering lock or something else?
     
  19. By linear you mean 1 degree movement on the weel is 1 degree movement in the game? So, at 50 it's 1:1 and at 100 it's 1:2?

    I've been trying to verify this assertion online but I can't find any authoritative sources. However, judging by what I'm seeing of the wheel animation that does appear to be true but it's difficult to be certain the actual turning angle of the car is accurate.
     
  20. They're all different but I've settled on what everybody seems to say about GT cars using 540 generally and a 15:1 steering ratio so steering lock of 18 is exactly 15:1 for 540 degrees.

    Like you I just want one setup for all cars so I use 540. Really, F1 cars using something like 270-370, GT cars use 540, the Mazda MX-5 in iRacing is apparently 900 degrees :).
