My new Fanatec CS v.3 Pedal has rumble motors. But, they are virtually useless. The only time the motors are felt is in the Windows pedal setup interface. In the games, they are not felt what so ever.

Does anyone know of a software tweak, or mod that can make the motors perform better in-game?

Try using Fanaleds maybe? But the bad news is those pedal rumble motors are pretty useless on the best of days. If you want some rumbles a 'transducer+amp+simhub' will do the trick.

they work in conjunction with simhub
(thanks again to Wotever for this very useful piece of software...consider making a donation to him)

I am currently using Sim Commander 4 with several transducers and a 4 channel amp. The setup works very well. Just trying to get the vib motors on the pedals to do their jobs.

Male sure the pedals connected direct to USB and not the wheel, otherwise these third party apps cannot control the pedal motors.

I wouldn't count on those motors being a real feature. I forgot I had them when I had the Fanatec pedals. Of course I was getting into tactile at that time too but still. They are pretty gimmicky.

I use Fanaleds and it seems the ABS motor is active now in every major sim I've tried. Very noticeable to me and worth the download.

I have the current version of Fanaleds installed. I will try it and see if it does anything. For now, I am counting on the transducers for brake lockup as well as road bumps.
