Xbox360 MS Wheel Settings

Discussion in 'F1 2011 - The Game' started by deanbrooker1983, Sep 23, 2011.

  1. Hi there i am having a few problems with setting up my ms wheel i have played for hours now and still can not seem to find some thing i like i was wondering if anyone else is having trouble or what other people are doing i have listed my settings below any advice or help would be great full

    Steering Deadzone: 0%
    Steering Saturation: 0%
    Steering Linearity: 0%
    Throttle Deadzone: 5%
    Throttle Saturation: 0%
    Brake Deadzone: 2%
    Brake Saturation: 0%

    Force FeedBack

    Environmental Effects: 50%
    FeedBack Strength: 100%
    Wheel Weight: 50%
     
  2. I use Steering Linearity at 28%. Seems to work fine for me.
     
  3. I have deadzone on 2%, everything else in that section 0

    Second section I have everything on 100% except environment which I have on 70%.

    Best I have got so far but still playing around with it.
     
  4. Hey guys. Got 2011 today and I'm really struggling. Every time I go round a corner which can be taken flat out, Melbourne for example, I lose the back end. I know you should be able to go flat out round these corners as I have previously done so on 2010.

    Is it the steering wheel? Or what? Has anybody else experienced the same issue?

    I'm going to have a play with the settings shortly, so I'll update then...

    Cheers.
     
  5. Yeah i had the same problems. It seems you just have to be gentle on the throttle. I don't believe thats a problem with the wheel/ pedals. And of course you need to make some adjustments to the setup.
     
  6. these are the settings im using for my madcats mc2, thanks to David o'Reilly for this setup
    quoted from the private message he sent me

    EDIT: tried on cousins offical wheel and seems fine. depends on the driver and how sensitive he likes the steering
     
  7. with these settings can u fill the car start to slide does the will give you better feedback with these settings
     
  8. does these force feed back settings give you good feedback when the car stats to slide
     
  9. I'm planning on getting a wheel in the next month or so, could someone tell me what all this means, deadzone/linearity/saturation etc.
    Thanks in advance!
     
  10. Any1 here that does have a good working FFB MS wireless wheel, cuz mine is worthless on F1 2011.
    Or if any1 has a fix for it, or knows something about one...
     
  11. You feel the change in the wheel which helps a lot.

    Not sure if its quite upto Race Pro standards but it is streets ahead of last years FFB.
     
  12. I messed with it quite a bit this afternoon and I got some really good ones dialed in I can tell you that my steering sat is at 19, and Lin is at 25. Now I changed my throttle and brake deadzones my throttle dead is about 10, and my break is about 14, now with those two I change them from track to track I feel that with the throttle it comes on a lot smoother and on the break it is less likely to lock up with a little jab of the breaks (i know things are going to be a lot better once I get my new fanatec wheel lol but that's a different story) anyways this is what I have been using with the aids off and traction control on med. Tue wheel seems to be right on with the one on the game and it is very stable, the only thing is changing the deadzone on the break and throttle from track to track I don't know if its me or if it really does make a difference but all I can say is give it a shot. All the rest of the stuff is set to zero. As far as my ffb I have my environment on 10, ffs 10, and weight is 10 hope this helps

    I think i'll give these settings a try this week.... maybe it will make it easier when i have the TCS off.
     
  17. The best thing you can do for throttle feel with the MS pedals is to use bungee cords hooked around the back of the pedal and to the front of the base to give more tension on the pedal. The same can be done to the brake, or use an additional/stronger spring under the pedal. I found the pedals to be so floppy that it was hard to tell how far they were moving with the pressure I was applying, but with the additional tension I can be much more precise with throttle and brake application.

    As far as feeling the car sliding, play with the balance between wheel weight and feedback strength. I have found that with a high wheel weight percentage you lose a lot of feeling you would normally get from the feedback. I like 10% environmental effects, 30% feedback strength, and 10% wheel weight. All deadzone, linearity, and saturation settings are at 0%.

    David, can you post this again? I can't make sense out of it now.
    I never did get around to trying this out and since i'm having so much throuble at Shanghai this week i thought i might check into the wheel settings and see if it helps at all. I can't seem to get the throttle down, and when i do *whoops* there goes the back end again. It's utterly frustrating.
