    I got my wheel working again yesterday and it was fine, but I turn my PC on this morning and the throttle pedal is screwed up and is either at 0% with no pressure on it, or if you tap it very slightly it goes up to 100% and I can't use it for variable input. I've taken the pedals apart to clean the crap out inside but I still get the same result.

    EDIT: Despite being able to see the problem in the Logitech Profiler, iRacing recognises that its a variable input and works just fine but games like rFactor dont?

    It says it calibrates when I install the software, other than that I don't know how to calibrate it.

    Also make sure you remap the throttle again ingame. Like select your throttle pedal again in the options as your throttle pedal. :)

    Yeah I've done that too, the weird thing about this whole thing is that the gauge on the Logitech software shows the throttle as being dodgy ie, going from 0% to 100%. The same with rFactor, I've assigned it several times and it goes from 0% to 100%.

    iRacing on the other hand, when I map the throttle on there whilst the Logitech software is STILL showing it as dodgy, it works fine! Its so bizarre :( and annoying because the only leagues I race in now are on rFactor!

    Neil Gaunt is a hero! That fixed it downloading the clear calibration. Thanks very much! :redface:

    With Windows and the logitech devices, if you plug into a different USB that does the trick at times and you don't have to use that tool. :)
