    Don't unistall the game.
    Verify your cache
    Delete AMS 2 folder in my documents
    Make sure your wheelbase drivers are installed etc.
    Have fun!

    There's no hidden folders.
    Why does your FFB not feel good anymore?

    it is not so much informative as it use to be
    i tried custom files and default and default plus
    many defferent settings
    it just feels mediocre
    not much information no matter what i try on setings
    i play rf2 ac acc ams1 all of them feels good but not AMS 2 anymore

    I had a similar issue as op after the transition from release candidate to main version, I tried all the usual tricks to reset things without uninstalling, but ultimately what fixed it was a reinstall.
    It’s not a big hassle if you are organised and let it download at a time that your doing other things, and make a back up of your docs folder, so you can put your graphics settings and user profile back into the new docs folder after doing a fresh install and game start. the cloud save helps keep all your skins etc. so you don’t have to go through and redo those.

    Are you sure?
    Keeps steam a backup of these local folders?
    If I delete these local folders, does steam restore them?

    Does for me anyway, but if your worried you can just take a back up of overrides folders.

    Mesfigas are you using the latest 440 Fanatec driver? I had a similar issue with my CSW 2.5 a couple of weeks ago after updating to 339, the FFB in most Sim’s had completely changed and I had lost a lot of ‘road feel’. I read some information provided by Ettore on Discord regarding this issue and having something to do with dampening being affected. Anyway after a lot of frustration and lack of FFB feeling I then updated the Fanatec driver to 440 and all FFB in all Sims now feels amazing to me, especially AMS2.

    Even crazier things can happen. Back when v400 was new I upgraded my CSW2.5 to that. I got mega stutter that went worse and worse with time. I reinstalled them a couple times. I downgraded back to v328 and it was fine. Then much later I upgraded to whatever I have now (v410 maybe) and it was fine.

    One thing I've read is you want to completely uninstall Fanatec drivers before installing new ones. I don't know if that's just a myth and I can't prove it worked for me since I had much time in between attempts and went for a newer version.
