T300 FFB tweak for R3E - Custom FFB settings for T300

Custom FFB tweak for Thrustmaster T300.
Based on ravey1981 file from sector3 forums.

WARNING: Some users have reported strange behaviour with flatspots with TM wheels. This file has them ON.
If you are having weird FFB issues with the T300, downgrade to firmware v29 or v30. v31 seems to cause the issue with R3E. I recommend downgrading anyway because...

You should really add a description of what this tweak is actually doing, instead of directing people to other websites to find out.

For the record, it adds a new "canned" road rumble FFB effect. In other words the wheel will vibrate slightly when travelling along straights. It's pretty subtle and, in my opinion at least, feels better than the "dead smooth" feeling you get on some tracks.

If you want to apply this tweak without having to set up your whole wheel mapping all over again, you can simply replace the relevant section of your controller file with the following lines:
Code:
FFB steer vibe freq mult="0.7" // Controls frequency of steering vibration. Recommended: 0.5 to 1.0, 0.0 disables steering vibration.
FFB steer vibe zero magnitude="0.07" // Magnitude of steering vibration at 0mph (reference point).
FFB steer vibe slope="0.2" // Slope of line defining magnitude as a function of frequency (used with FFB steer vibe zero magnitude).
FFB steer vibe wave type="2" // Type of wave to use for vibe: 0=Sine, 1=Square, 2=Triangle, 3=Sawtooth up, 4=Sawtooth down.

You can also use the above code to get the effect on other wheels too, though you might need to adjust the numbers slightly to get the best feel as this is optimised for the T300.

Indeed, I updated the description.
Some other FFB settings are changed slightly as well to my liking, that is why I added all of the FFB settings in the post.

I've updated my original post to 2021 standards so you may want to change the link above.


Glad you like the vibrations, I think it adds to the immersion in the game, but canned effects aren't everyone's cup of tea... Its kept subtle though so not too offensive...
