I have had it when the sessions change, and a couple of times mid session too. Not really looked into how to sort it yet though.

What wheel are you using? I use a DFGT

It's happened to me a while ago 1 - 2 times but not for months, not sure it's a game bug as it used to happen all the time with old wheel on Toca Race driver 3.

I never lost completely the FFB, once I had reduction if I remember correctly...

Anyway, when that happens, if you can (not always possible), go to the garage (pres Esq.). In there disconnect the wheel (wait for the USB sound), then connect it back in (again wait for USB sound) after (and importantly) go to options - controllers, see your wheel in there and exit the options menu to the pits. Now everything should be ok... (If not likely you are a “ghost” or have some similar game glitch).

The loss of FFB can be related with many things and usually it is related with deficient client - server connection or some game glitch ("ghosts", no car model loaded and so on). Also don't forget, FFB in a G25 for instances, when used with decent strengths and effects is demanding also on the client machine...

O well I just go to settings/controlls open it up, exit and it works.
Just wondering if I was the only one with the problem.

I had this problem many times, and makes me very angry... :(

"...I never lost completely the FFB...." I lost only the centering spring, and the cursbs works well, but very dificult to drive, when the centering spring gone suddenly. And I always notice it on the starting grid, and not time to repair it.....

Simbin Games :glasses-nerdy: ??

<alt+f> = FFB reset
Hehe, empirical solutions work... but "text book" ones sure look easier and usualy work faster.
We just have to read the book first... :D

Thanks very much for the tips, this kind of bugs happen to me at the Silverstone event of the STC, during the quali. I know now there is a way to avoid that problem :)
