Loose FFB Steering feel

Discussion in 'Stock Car Extreme' started by JimmyRickard, Aug 19, 2015.

  1. I've used the settings recommended in the steering setup thread for my T300GTE, and the steering still feels quite loose. I've done a comparison with iRacing, PCars, Dirt Rally and Race Room and al of them have a noticeably firmer centre when driving. FFB is still quite strong in GCSE when hitting ripple strips etc. but the the feeling overall is quite loose.
    Is this a setup thing or is this what the game is supposed to feel like?

    Are you at -100% for ffb ingame?

    make sure you set the ffb slider to +100 not leave the slider as default (to the left) at -100
  5. Thanks, have used the settings as recommended. It is an improvement, but it still feels light in the middle. Maybe I just need to get used to it?

    It is always risky to compared games and ffb. Try to play some days like this and tell us

    Check the steering lock ingame in car setup if defaults to 14
    Setting to a 100 ingame will most likely cause clipping which means there will be no ffb signals recieved once it reaches it's max
    60-80% is usually a safe zone, tho I only say that since the game uses the gmotor engine which is the same as rf1 and race 07. Both had ffb clipping tools and had very similar clipping points around 75%
    Rumor has it the in the thrustmaster profile linear is approx 75% ffb strength
    I have my profile like this
    And ingame ffb set to 75
    If using....
    900 degrees set steering lock to 28-30
    540 18-22

    Hope that helps
  8. GSCE tends to have much lighter FFB in general. My usual reaction to driving GSCE after driving other sims is to wonder if the motor in my wheel has started to die. You get used to it and appreciate its more subtle tendency. If after weeks or months it still feels wrong its either not for you or there is something wrong with your wheel, game settings, or other.
  9. I haven't been able to improve the firmness of the FFB, but I am really enjoying the racing, much more so than other sims. I've started a Evo X season and I love the racing it's great.
    but, I tried out the Formula Retro, and the weak steering really took me out of the experience. Those cars would be an absolute bastard to drive without power steering, and here I am steering it with one finger. A bit disappointing really, and I can't seem to work out if that's actually the game or if my settings are wrong. FWIW, I've used and double checked the recommendations in this thread and I haven't missed anything. Anyway, I guess I'll stay away from the open wheelers for now.
  10. Try the V12. It has pretty nice strong FFB. Easily my favourite car.
