    Hey Everybody!

    I have made my own mod so I could feel the road again in F1 2012. I hated the flat feeling and no road force feedback on my wheel. I have seen some people requesting it so I am releasing it for you all, I hope it helps ;)

    I have added 3 settings: Low Medium and High
    I recommend starting with Low... then test which one you prefer.
    You have to set the game's FFB Effects to at least 30%-50%

    >>>> DOWNLOAD HERE <<<<


    Mod edit - mod re-hosted 22/10/2013 and link is now live, as this file was lost when the microdownloads were wiped.

    Instructions:

    Choose a folder between Low, medium and high and UnRAR THAT folder's files into "F1 2012" Main Folder (example: "C:\Program Files\Codemasters\F1 2012\")


    Enjoy! :D

    This is actually meant for ALL wheels. But I use a Logitech Driving Force GT. I have a custom setup with my Controller and FFB effects files... If someone wants me to upload all my "DFGT" settings & files for F1 2012 I will do it as well. :D

    venom,
    not sure but the low setting file seems to be identical to the original?

    EDIT - actually, it's identical to the 'original' file you have included in the download, not the one in the game

    No no, the low setting file is fine, but the file that you have included as 'original' is also a low setting file :)

    Venom,

    First you do awesome wheels, now you want to make my real wheel better?
    Come on, stop this please, you are making the game much better, i won't be able even to check the forums if you keep like this! lol
    Awesome work! Thanks man!

    I'll try it, im using the FFB with gear changes. I saw that its not enable with your files, i'll add it myself (to my own game :D) and see how does it look. Have you tried with FFB on gear changes?

    Thanks again! :thumbsup:
