    Hi.
    I have spent over 1 hour messing with the FFB settings and is prety much unplayable.
    I have looked at http://www.racedepartment.com/threa...-rfactor-2-force-ffb-very-strong-heavy.91900/ but does not make any difference.

    I have the G27 and the FFB is really "notchy" for lack of a better term. I have trawled trhough google and nothing is helping, and to be honest nothing is even noticibaly different for my untill i try to turn the FFB multi up. less than 0.40 is notchy and more than 0.40 is far too strong. all I want is smooth FFB.

    Please help.

    First question which car?
    For me with in the time i had the G25 only had to load the G25 predefined profile from the game had it was fine. Only a bit weak in some of the open wheeler but otherwise very good.

    Don't worry only thing where dfgt is better than g27 is that it has basically no dead zone around centre... G27 is fine wheel

    You dont need a new wheel. Its just some like the ffb from the civic and some dont.
    For me its also hard to adapt to the feeling.
    But the rwd gts feel awesome for me.

    E: Or the Clios :D

    I don't mean to play down your issue mate but one car and you're already saying it's unplayable? patience and I'm sure the cavalry will be along to rescue you.

    Ok. I have had a go with a few more cars that do sort of interest me and all have a veru notchy feeling mainly around 0 input. I.e. going from around 30° left to 30° right.

    I might get used to it. I have been reading about it and got 7 days to get a refund.

    I have never use the logitech profiler for any game.

    The control panel settings are

    900°
    100% for the 3 ffb settings
    40% centering spring streanth

    soo you can try:
    Spring effect and dumper to 0%, centering spring to 0% and unclick Enable centering spring (so technically you can leave centering spring at whatever setting as it is not enabled).
    Allow game to change.

    Overall strenght .. probably leave it on 100% .. maybe try 110% .. it is hard to say when has G27 most linear output as it has terrible deadzone, than steep raising curve and slowly decreasing curve after 50% .. maybe even try to go to 80%, some like it more, dead zone is slightly bigger but after getting out of deadzone output increase is not that sudden and steep ..

    Thanks
