    Hi!

    I'm playing 4 games at the moment, F1 2013, Assetto Corsa, Simbin-pack (Pride & Glory mostly) and rFactor 2.

    Now my old logitech wheel had this smart thing called profiles where you could set specific settings to each game. So if i was running F1, i'd decrease the wheel-turn-ratio to 200-250 degrees, etc etc.

    Is Thrustmaster telling me they don't have any of that?? The controlpanel is quite useless, yes i know i can adjust the turning of the wheel in it, but thats the general setting.

    So, when driving F1 I want 230 degrees, when i play simbin or assettto corsa i want 900 something like a normal car. How do i do this? Don't tell me i actually have to set the degrees when starting a specific game EVERY time?

    Any helpful hints?

    //Rob

    It's very useful
    Just make different profiles and only need to enable the game settings.

    Another option is to use on-the-fly degrees of rotation adjustment, but I prefer the above app to adjust the forces also.

    If you press the "mode" button and "Left or Right" on the d-pad it cycle from 270 to 1080 degrees. It has 270, 540, 900, and 1080

    I made this a long way back :
    https://www.dropbox.com/s/c2cw85bker609d4/T500ProfileManager.exe

    There are tons of stuff not finished, but the basics work.
    You can create profiles for your games (pointing to the executable exe-file) and they will be applied automatically.

    I *think* this is 64-bit only; can't check right now...

    Never got around to finishing it, or "releasing" it, but if there's enough interest I will take another look at it.

    Hey, thanks a million! I will give this a go for sure! I use 64bit anyhow :D

    What i don't understand is why Thrustmaster is so dumb that they don't make their own!? Do they seriously think race-simmers only race one game forever?

    I play rallygames, f1, games, sim-games (ie assetto corsa), trucksims etc etc...
