    Caterham 620 with Fanatec Recommend settings: Automobilista (PC) - Fanatec Recommended Settings

    It feels so amazing. Can't describe it. I've skipupdates on 0 and the signal on 360, so it's 720hz.

    C:\Users\Name\Documents\Automobilista\userdata\Name then search for Skipupdates and change it to zero

    It's in the controller.ini file in the folder referenced above.

    Enables an even higher resolution FFB mode than is available via the UI.

    However, it may do nothing if the reports of FFB/controller frequency being limited to overall FPS frequency are true. If that is the case, then switching from 360 to 720 Hz would only matter for people with FPS above 360. Don't think that is too common or likely. But you can always try it and see if you think there is a difference. If it causes any problems or reduced performance, just put it back to the default of 1.

    Unless something recently changed, the 720 Hz FFB when setting skip updates to 0 does not work (according to a Reiza rep). At best, if it does work, it's only for the FFB forces you get if you use any of the "+ effects" FFB settings ie. the original ISI FFB - what many people refer to as "canned" FFB (I hate that term since it's still connected to the car's physics/telemetry but that's another topic).

    If something has changed though, I'd appreciate being informed/corrected.
