    I cant beleive how the cars feel now using a Bodnar DD wheel. The FFB was the best out there and now its even better!!! Great job Reiza!! You are sooo lucky to have someone like Niels doing the FFB. I'm a big fan of his work. G27 users should also be happier now that the low force boost oprtion is available in the Menu.

    With DFGT I set it to 107 profiler, -55 ingame strength, 80 % low force boost... I might reduce it abit, maybe 70. Now it feels pretty much like AC with lut curves and the anti-clipping app.

    Most noticeable is that forces are not so abrupt as before, they made my hands hurt probably because I was squeezing the wheel to feel the weaker forces. Also the game doesn't drop to 3 fps now when I stop my car or move very slowly, I guess because of fixes to the low speed calculations... tho that is more of an issue with my cpu.

    I'm not sure if I like the FFB more or less than before, but it definitely seems to be more useful...

    Your settings arent correct. Should be 100 in profiler ans set ingame to -100 and just adjust the Realfeel With Numlock R-CTRL 7 for weaker and R-CTRL 9 for stronger. I used to use a G27 which is similar to your wheel.

    Supa, his settings are perfectly valid (IMHO). 107 in the profiler is standard procedure for many Logitech wheel users as it can help eliminate the centre deadzone.

    You should be able to address that center deadzone by increasing Low Force Boost % though - whether the results for that specific matter are as satisfactory may be may be a matter of taste, but at least you avoid the clipping at higher forces.

    True indeed Renato. When I had a G27 I found 107 worked well for those titles that didn't have a minimum FFB type setting, but as you say Low Force Boost might do the trick.

    Erm... DFGT does not have center deadzone, I tested with Wheelcheck several times. 107 is just recommended setting for linearity, 100 in profiler and -100 ingame will be way too strong, and the realfeel thing I never tried - I dont know what it does, if it saves the values and if they remain the same, also, if I start to play with it, it will never end.

    DFGT 100 in profile with 80% low force an 70-80% strength, is the sweet spot for me. Wheel an car feels so connected now.

    I would have thought that the Min Force slider that Renato mentioned does away with the need for 107 in the logitech profiler. And s2173....you need to get your head around Realfeel. Adjusting it while you drive is the way to go!

    Can you re-map realfeel adjustments to other buttons/keys?
    My keyboard doesn't have a numpad option... Logitech K400...

    What are the recommended low force values for the t300? I feel the wheel very strange after update.
    I try 50-60 value

    They recommend 20-40 for a T300, I use 30 and it feels awesome.

    has anyone gotten CSW V2 or OSw Lenze MCS12 configured properly and setup to give it a good feeling of FFB? I have been looking around but no luck...

    I have a question about PneumaticTrailGripFractPower (PTGFP) function
    Can you explain how could it be implemented in a tbc file of a converted mod.
    Do we need to keep pneumtictrail as it was and add this new line, which value to give to this new fonction for a openwheel car for example? Is it PneumaticTrailGripFractPower=... to add in tbc file? Thanks for your answer Reiza and a big thanks for this wonderful game that AMS is!!!! Gratitude!

    I am settling on 6% after some experimentation.
