    Well I've been doing some testing in my thumb cannot handle 40 minutes of racing in fact I can barely do 20 minutes.
    Therefore I must withdraw from the event.
    But I would like to share my set ups for each car. They are at the top of the leaderboard so they're quite quick for me.

    Good luck, have fun, keep it clean, have a great race.

    Sorry chaps but until @Calvyn White mentioned the 40 minute bit I had no idea (one ought to wear ones glasses when one is spewing guff :rolleyes:). I won't last that long, well I will but the fleshy outer and bony inner hasn't a Rats arse. :( Had to peel my hands off the wheel after a practice earlier, so midweek mayhem rather than Sunday mass. Have fun guys, shame, like this combo, not so sure I still would after 50+ laps of it.

    FFB always gets kind of weird everytime thereĀ“s a patch to the game I have to tinkle it around everytime to get it right(?!)
    I get back to the idea that it be a much better approach by Sector3 (hello @Alex Hodgkinson ;)) regarding FFB to slim down all the options available.
    Please Sector3, I love R3E, I think it goes better every day, but as far as FFB is considered, I think "Less is More". Pleas guys, go simple like most of the other sims go, and just let it be some options maybe for Strength and Dampening (an "richness" of effects?!).
    As for all of the restant myriad of variables, it cannot be us, the gaming punter, to know whether the correct feeling for that car, must be more to the "Vertical Load" or "Horizontal load" or split, or kerbs or rack or tyres or ,or , .... you get the idea...
    Should be a Developers job I think, to get it right for that Wheel (or other periphal)/Car/Track. At most the gamer should be able to change, as said before, the Strength/Dampening b/c not all of us have enough strong rigs to endure some levels of Force:p
    If you think about it, just to set the wheel up right ( Fanatec CSW V2 here), you Have to:
    1- Get it right at the Windows' driver - ok, just 2 variables
    2- Get it right at the wheel itself - loads of ways to get it wrong here
    3- Get it right at R3E FFB menu - loooooads of ways to get it wrong here :)cautious::(:O_o:)
    4- get it right at the car setup - ok, there should be the place to tinker it :thumbsup:

    And in the end, w/ so much variables to move around, and although eventually you get it to feel "right", you will never know if that is the way the Car SHOULD feel anyway:(:(:(...:cry:

    Sounds to me like Fanatec gear is almost as much fun as direct drive to get working (and almost as expensive), and not just in Raceroom. Lately it seems like all I see is either Fanatec or DD owners complaining about things not working for them in various games...

    But what is there to slim down? There's not that many options and the defaults, at least for the TM and Logitech wheels (the two I have direct experience with) are pretty decent IMO, all you really need is to tone down some of the canned effects that don't come from physics anyway, anything else is just finetuning to personal preference. So maybe the answer is providing better defaults for Fanatec if that's not the case, not taking away the few settings there are.

    Well all I did with the Force Feedback was turn up the multiplier by about 50% all seems ok by me. But due to recent discussions on the subject I should probably have a more of a serious look. As I find having your Force Feedback as best you can possibly get it certainly contributes in setting up your car.
    As for the sound yeah not that good a bit below the usual excellent standard. But I feel sure it will be improved.

    :O_o: Aren't you clipping like half of the time, if not more? The default multiplier settings are usually already on the limit of clipping in situations where you are supposed to be on the limit of clipping, so raising it that much sounds pretty extreme.

    We'll.... Can't quite believe the games just crashed out on me. Never had it happen before with R3E

    Up in to the lead and thoroughly enjoying the effort and suddenly I'm staring at my desktop

    Is there a log of some kind that can be checked to try and determine what happened?
