FFB: Still felt very lifeless (no wheel feel and to strong around the middle (DD1 with GT2 wheel), so i switched back to the custom one i had and that still worked better. That one is lighter around the middle and you can feel under/oversteer which is completely missing for me in the default
Do you use Fanalab?
What firmware are you on?
What wheelbase settings you use?

I’m also using fanatec DD and I was already happy with last build and on this build the FFB is even better. I’m not having the problems you mention.

For the records, we know the Cayman is broken but the other GT4 are nice to drive and there is a lot to be liked in the update.

The GroupA are (IMHO) spectacular and the new tire revision for prototypes is adding depth to the driving experience.

Reiza deserves support from the community for all the great things they are doing but, seriously, they promised not to rush over new content anymore... not exactly matching expectations here.

Hey mate, i'm using the "Heavy Messing (NuScorpii V2.5)". Downloaded it some time ago and it felt better than the original FFB. Maybe i will fiddle around tomorrow since i got more time on my hands. Following my Fanalab Version and settings:

Was comparing GT3 in AMS2, AC, ACC, R3E, and PCars2 today.
My personal subjective rating from best to worst:
- ACC
- AC
huge gap
- R3E
- AMS2
- PCars2

All subjective, IMHO, based on personal preferences, etc..

Hope NuScorpii updates custom profile if he didn't give up on AMS2 yet.

I‘ve spent last night and today bouncing around forums, here and Reiza’s, as I won’t get a chance to play until tomorrow evening and have been astonished by some of the comments and anger coming from some posters. Some venting such a sense of betrayal when the patch didn’t drop bang on 4pm....literally posts at 16:02.

I feel for any developer quite frankly and thats not white knighting, we can all see there have been issues; some of which are disappointing to see got through. However Reiza have been clear it’s a long term project and I completely agree with the sentiment above - I think there’s enough content to allow them to relax the schedule, concentrate on tweaking what we have and use the added time to polish and thoroughly test the new content before release.

If they’re going to get the level of stick they’re getting no matter what they do then why not take it on the chin and, hopefully, quieten many of those voices with a well presented dlc/update when it’s ready.

As I say though, I haven’t played the new update yet and am looking forward to it - I’ve had an absolute blast since starting AMS2 and it’s firmly got me into Sim racing ..... I‘m in for the long haul.

Holy Moly. I have a Boxster S 981 in the garage. I only drive it sometimes on the weekends admittedly but there is no way I get the level of bounce from suspension/tyres as this Cayman GT4. Sure, my car isnt a GT spec anything, but if it handled like this, I'd take it in for repair. This level of bounce is ridiculous.

To be honest, I find quite a few cars in AMS2 have this tendancy to bounce.

Ok this is weird. Can't break traction and do a donut in a rear wheel drive, v powerful car with all assists off (porsche) and cant lock brakes in a straight line at all in Mclrean, like the abs is permanent. Am i missing something here?
Agree the Porsche is very hard to do a Donut and I personally can not get the McLaren to do a burnout off the grid:rolleyes::redface::roflmao:...you have to get into the Merc to do burnouts and donuts ;)...lol:D:roflmao:

The FFB is feeling great, as this time I had to further tweak the Thrustmaster Control Panel and slide the 'Damper' to '0' now and further adjust the in game FFB to my liking :thumbsup::thumbsup:...all in all, an awesome update and looking forward to cruising the Nordschleife :inlove::inlove:

Yeah something is very wrong with a few of the cars with the bounciness. Once that is fixed they will be great. I liked the GT3R quite a bit.

Several new cars exhibiting a pogo-like effect that makes them borderline undrivable unless you're a masochist. Not sure how this got past the beta crew since you can experience it in just a few turns. Should have been delayed.
We got the cars really late. And honestly, Reiza really need testers like you or Jussi.

These cars behavior at the limit does not feel like seta tires at this stage.

I find the AMG GT3, Porsche Gt3 and Camaro GT4 seemed to be the best so far. 570S has this weird issue that’s it losses most of it’s grip at mid corner.

And by the way, what's with the AI and all the ramming??
I love this sim, but the AI does like to take you out. I really wish Reiza would work more on the AI for those of us who are not online racers. I like the way they battle each other, and even take one another out every now and again, but they don't understand that 2 solid objects cannot occupy the same space. They also seem to have different physics than we do. Give the AI a hard bump and they stay on track. They give us a light one, and off the track we go. With that said, I still love the sim, and the new GT4 and GT3 cars are great (except the Porsche GT4. I think they forgot to give that thing shocks)

I noticed that if I just bump the TC and ABS to low all handles much better on the 570.
