    The feel overall is good on my AccuForce Wheel after I turned engine vibration down to 1 but I have tried all 3 different files and for me the constant sharp rattle that underlies everything is just way too strong even with FX turned off - I guess it is road texture and bumps provided by the game. On a Rally track it is most noticeable but even on a smooth track it is too strong. I am tinkering with some settings trying to find what is the setting but have not found it yet. Thanks for your efforts though and for me Raw is good and I gave up on the Jack Spade files as they were not for me.

    Same problem here for me, on an AccuForce, as well. Youtuber SimRacing604, also on an AF, seems to really, really like it though?

    I really like these ffb settings on my logitech g29, however there is pretty big dead zone, where I have no real ffb, that's pretty big and it doesn't exist in the default ffb settings. Is there a way to fix this?

    Curious on why you say to turn off spring and damper on wheel settings. They don't do anything unless the game ffb calls for the effects. Didn't this turn off some effects being sent to the wheel.

    I been doing a bit of experimenting with some minor changes and seems I might have made some progress with the excessive & constant shaking / bumping. It seems to vary according to what car & track you test it on as well.
    [Edit] Still tinkering with it and see my file to try below, mainly if you have an AF wheel or OSW. Also see Hugo's comment that he is working on a new set of files with less bumps.

    Inside the file there is the deadzone removal effects you can tweak down in the last lines

    A whole lot... I've been working on this file for about a year playing and going back to adjust and test every setting with various cars to make sure the feel is good throughout the whole game.

    nice! I'll take a look at it and I am also working on the matter and I will release an update soon with less bumps in the smoother feel file.

    Thanks Hugo, will test them later today/tonight. I did get a better feel of your comfortable file after changing the Scoop settings as scoop knee was really high and scoop reduction I bumped up a little.

    Well , tried the new version, the smooth and the comfortable file but i still get crazy loud vibrations on my g27. Tried lowering the bump value on the file to 0.1, fx to 0, volume to 30 and still get the same intensity(with the weight of the wheel feeling lighter of course) . Very weird. I thought it was something wrong with the wheel itself but if i play on informative flavour they feel great, some small tactile response but no crazy vibrations. Guess I'll try to not drive on the kerbs lol, otherwise it feels awesome.

    Tried the latest, with the latest in-game settings, same rattly, vibration ffb issues. There's also a massive drop of ffb in the bottom of the dip after T1 at Brands Hatch (perhaps on cold tires) with the Ginetta G55 GT4. Very unnatural. I solved this by halving Tone to 25.

    I ended up with Gain 100, Volume 70 (increase wheel weight), Tone 25 (more wheel weight to steering forces rather than slippage), FX 12 (to reduce some gravelly, bumpy ffb that wasn't making much sense).

    When it's smooth in hard cornering I do actually like how this file conveys grip through the corner. It's just about right to navigate through hard cornering.

    The crazy rough, gravelly, vibration ffb that happens sometimes, due to some road surface bumps maybe?, really has to be solved.

    Thanks for your efforts Hugo. I think the difference is largely dependant on the wheel used as with the AccuForce the finer road details are magnified probably much more than on a belt or cog driven wheel, same would be even more true on the stronger OSW wheels I would guess.

    I have slightly changed a few values in your Pure Feel file and I think it feels very good now. Much more lively than the J.Spade files I previously used. Drifting the Ferrari 512M around Silverstone Classic feels incredible as I can feel the tire grip limit and catch oversteer quite easily and getting on and off the throttle quickly I can notice much more of what the tire is doing and feel the weight thru the AF wheel brilliantly ... much fun !!! :D

    Nearly as good as the Nissan GTR in ACC which feels fantastic.

    Thanks Hugo the option are a great addition.
    I drive as a default old DTM cars with clutch and H gate. Having tested for a few hours I have a question. I think the perfect setting for my v2.5 is smooth but I love the snap back on the wrist breaker profile. Could you tell me what to change if possible in the smooth profile to keep road feel the same but increase that snap back which I find so useful/enjoyable when chucking the old cars into a turn side ways.
    Thanks

    Yes, this ffb does this very well.
