I am just looking for something like LAR555 setup.... I was so excited to this game but when i try it i must say the FFB default options feel so wierd for me. LAR555 setup on Dirt Rally was just beautifull and theese default settings are so far from that feel. Thx for all your tips and tricks guys :p

So as a lover of LAR555 and a G27 owner, the best FFB results i've had was following Grumps guide but for FFB force i set it to 9.0 and then i copied his in game settings except for Self Aligning Torque, I set that to 50. It still needs some tweaking but i thought it made a huge difference.

:confused::O_o:

So in other words, you are setting your SAT to the equivalent of 450 on the in-game settings slider with the default ffb_force of 1.0 (well, if it was possible to set it that high).
You don't like your wheel very much, do you?

i used the default button in logitech profiler ( but 270 degrees rotation is default, i put that back to 900 obviously ) And ingame i only lowered the first option to 80, self alignment thingy? Ingame, i dropped the steering rotation to 720 ish. Gives me still a lot of rotation and precision but i don't have to throw around the steering as much as irl.
I experimented with editing the device file ( ffb force 1or 3 or 6). But i did nothing good for my g27. Putting the profiler device options back to default did more for me. Some parts of the roads, there is just not a lot of ffb coming from the game. ( i compared the feeling to my volvo 240 on a dirt road, where there is also no feel in the wheel unless i am hitting holes in the road or under/oversteering but that is no rally car :) )

For shure CM need to fix the FFB , they may have add most of the wheels to be found on the current market , but once you look at the input XML file only a handful have more than a few setting added.
With most of use using cut and paste to mess with the stock setting .

It is almost like the first version of Dirt Rally with its very odd center heavy steering .
I started off with 0.5 for the FFB input file then tried 1.0 but that is far worse , now at 0.9 .

But it is still not right , I have dropped most of the sliders in game in a attempt to get rid of the center steer feel , surface feedback is vague that can only be fix via an update I would imagine .

I was wondering if anyone has tried copying and pasting lines in from Dirt 4's input file to see if that works or is even possible to do so, I am not at home now so I have not even looked into that option yet. I like the game though very much but CM always seem not be able to grasps how FFB works even though they fixed most of those issues back in DR1

You can be almost certain that if a device doesn't have certain parameter defined, it is simply using the default value for that parameter, which are documented in the same file. That's usually how these things work - you only have to specify parameters when they are different from defaults.
